McBride to Polar Queen,

can you read me? Over.

Polar Queen to McBride,

your signal's very faint. Go ahead.

We have been attacked

by a giant pterodactyl.

Good Lord!

Damage to amphib...

had to make forced landing...

Polar Queen to McBride,

this is Captain Lawton.

How bad is damage to plane?

McBride to Polar Queen,

acknowledge my message. Over.

I say again, how bad is damage to plane?

- No dice?

- It's hard to tell.

- Not much they could do anyway.

- Well, if they sail away, we're sunk.

Nobody's gonna sail away, Hogan.

There's plenty of time for everything.

- Any luck, Mr. Graham?

- No, sir. They've stopped transmitting.

Will they get that plane

back into the air?

There's no way we can send

a rescue party in over those cliffs.

- What the devil are we going to do, sir?

- We're going to wait, Mr. Whitby.

We shall chart this section of the coastline,

and we shall stay here as long as we can.

- Mount a 24-hour listening watch, Mr. Graham?

- Aye, aye, sir.

But supposing the ice closes in, sir.

Let me worry about that, will you,

Mr. Whitby? Start work on the charts, please.

Aye, aye, sir!

Ready... heave!

Ready... heave!

Okay. Let's take 5.

What we really need is a winch.

- Yeah, well, we haven't got one.

- You know, what we really need is a winch.


We must remember to bring one next time.

Go easy on that stuff, Hogan.

It's just a little "nerve tonic," major.

The war, remember?

- Well, this isn't the western front.

- You're absolutely right. It's worse.

No, no, believe me. I was there.

Pterodactyls are far more

interesting than Germans.


Doc, you professor types are all the same.


You give me the Red Baron any day.

Anyway, all I want to do Is fix up that

amphibian and get us the hell out of here.

Patrick Tilley

Patrick Tilley (born 4 July 1928) is a British science fiction author best known for The Amtrak Wars series of books - a futureworld epic set on the eve of the third millennium in a world emerging from the ravages of a dimly understood global holocaust. The name "Amtrak" - appropriated by a specific group of survivors - is a name remembered from what is called "The Old Time". Contrary to what has been suggested, the author, his literary agents, and publishers have never been contacted by the current Amtrak organisation over an infringement of trademark. Interviews with the author via his own website were removed when the forum section was terminated at his own request. The Forum section of the website has since been made available again. more…
