Atlantis, the Lost City - Operation Neptune

 

 

ATLANTIS STORY MAP & OPERATION HOMEPAGE

 

 

 

 

 

ATLANTIS GOLD - CH.15

 

 

Atlantis has been the subject of countless films, as has Nazi gold and oil polluting our oceans, but never have all these elements come together under one roof as a submarine movie. Aiming for a screenplay 90-110 pages max.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SURVEY OF NAZI U-BOAT LEADS TO DISCOVERY OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATION LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS

 

Having safely delivered the Astute class submarine to the port of Lisbon, and officially notified the Marine Accident Investigation authority, John and his crew think it is safe to return to the coast of Africa, where they noted the magnetic anomaly, suspiciously in the shape of a sunken vessel, that he suspects is a submarine.

 

Knowing that he is a target for MI6, having, to some extent, saved the Terramentals from becoming one of the MOD's unexplained incidents, John heads south to Casablanca, with a change of course to Rabat, then hugs the coastline, still proceeding south down the north African coast, to Safi, when he engages stealth mode.

 

The main hull is flooded to lower the Swann into the sea, and the solar wings lowered on each side well past the horizontal. This has the effect of reducing the exposed area that might be detected by radar from other ships or shore bases, and from satellites above. Rendering the ship virtually invisible. In this condition, John and crew motor out approximately fifty kilometers from shore, and relocate the magnetic signature of the sunken submarine. Only this time they can proceed more leisurely to investigate.

 

"Dan, usual routine, if you've a mind."

 

"Mind. I can't wait to see what is down there."

 

Cleopatra was equally curious. "What are we looking at Dan?"

 

"The Skipper has a hunch there is something interesting to be found. And we all know what that means."

 

"Yes," replied Cleopatra. "He usually is."

 

Dan launched the 'Nautilus' ROV. All eyes were on the camera screen. ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OFF THE COAST OF MOROCCO

 

It cannot be, but there it was, right before his eyes. Could this be the lost city of Atlantis? John's mind was racing. For sure, what was visible of the architecture seemed consistent with a time as described by Plato. But then, Atlantis is not real. John always thought that Atlantis was just a wonderful myth.


Swann and crew return to U-Boat coordinates in stealth mode at night, adopting a circuitous route to avoid being tracked. John surveys the site, and discovers what appears to be evidence of Atlantis, or at least an advanced civilization that is unknown and some 8-10,000 years old. On investigating the Nazi submarine, John discovers the gold onboard, in place of torpedoes and just about everything else.

Disillusioned eco activists are imprisoned by the British, for peacefully protesting in London about unrealistically low fines for oil spills in the North Sea, demonstrating strictly in accordance with their Article 9 and 10 Human Rights. They are targeted by fossil fuel industry fraudsters, who bribe police officials and court judges to secure a conviction, with the backing of corrupt ministers of state who have undeclared personal investments in oil drilling companies: Amoco, BP, Shell, Total. That sets in motion a train of events, where, having been framed, the ever more determined environmentalists build a mini-sub, fast enough and especially equipped, to sink or capture Astute, Aukus and US Seawolf class submarines. Having captured HMS Neptune, the Terramentals torpedo a BP owned rig, also destroying two others (Shell), with the looming threat to target all 150 plus, operating in the North Sea. The oil producers are temporarily forced to shut down production, as a result of the significant media coverage and public outrage on realization of the pollution. The UN asks John Storm to provide a geodata survey on the environmental damage.
