Atlantis, the Lost City - Operation Neptune

 

 

ATLANTIS STORY MAP & OPERATION HOMEPAGE

 

 

 

 

 

REACTOR LEAK - CH.12

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

REACTOR EMERGENCY SHUTDOWN SCRAMBLE - DANGEROUS RADIATION LEVELS

 

Under considerable pressure from being chased, HMS Neptune's reactor core overheated and began leaking high levels of toxic radiation, lethal to humans onboard. The automatic safety system triggers shutdown of the submarine's propulsion system. Sounding a red alert, with flashing lights and siren.

 

Red and the crew take a moment to register what is happening, then realize that John Storm must have been chasing them to warn, not to capture. 

 

Zera was the first Terramental to link this event to cost cutting shortcuts by the MOD's builder and service contractors.

 

"Oh no, this is more procurement fraud. I'd bet on it."

 

"Jeez," said Max. "I think you're right." Zinzi and Bart were nodding in agreement.

 

"Okay, agreed then, but we'd better get off this ship. Quickly, blow tanks."

 

On the surface, the Elizabeth Swann was closing fast. John and Dan spotted the submarine as it crashed through the waves at quite a pace. A stunning sight.

 

"Hal, bring us alongside if you please."

 

The Swann took up a parallel situation. The conning tower hatch could be heard opening, and out onto the boarding ladder, came Redan Simdo.

 

"Ahoy there. I'm John Storm. We are here to warn you about radiation leaking from that submarine."

 

"More than that mate. The reactor has just shut down with radiation alarms going off. I'm Red."

 

"If that's true, you will be, if you don't get off that boat. And it's John."

 

The remaining crew ...

 

 

OUT OF AFRICA

 

They were uncomfortably close to where the U-boat was discovered. Way to close for John's liking. He had to think fast. ...


 

The Terramentals realise John was telling the truth, when the radiation leak detection system on the SSN Neptune triggers. Their reactor is badly damaged, a fault in waiting triggered as the extremists pushed the vessel hard. They surface too close to the U-Boat for comfort.

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.
