Deep Star Six


- What did you say?

- I was on the ocean in a boat.

It was a dream.

That's the third time

you've had that dream this month.

Do you think the new site

for the missile platform is a lock?

Van Gelder thinks so. With any luck,

we'll be home in a week.

That's good, I'm ready.

What are you gonna do

when we get out of here?

Hang out with Laidlaw's family

till I get a new assignment.

- The Captain's got a great wife.

- Great wife, great kids.

The Captain, he's got it made.

How come you never got married?

It's too early

for this kind of conversation.

No, really, why did you never

get married?

I've never been in one place

long enough.

We've gotten pretty close

the last couple of months.

Get any closer,

we'd wear each other's shorts.

It's different with you.

You're like one of the guys.

Is your stomach still bothering you?

I think it's that dried-outjunk

we had last night.

Have Dr. Norris examine you.

- I'm just tired of the food.

- Me, too. I'd kill for a Big Mac.

- Locking collar? Umbilicals?

- Clear.

Get ready to detach.

This is about the twentieth time

I've read this magazine.

- I'd like to see a new movie.

- How about breathing fresh air?

Six months at the bottom of the ocean

is more than I bargained for.

- Peace is our profession.

- Exactly.

There she blows.

Transponder contact, 550 metres.

- Reduce speed.

- DSRV-2 to Seatrak, come in.

- This is Seatrak. Go, Richardson.

- We're on the turnpike.

About time, the shift change

was 20 minutes ago.

Good morning to you, too, Snyder.

Put a candle in the window for us.

Work lights on,

homing beacon activated.

- Collar in place, umbilicals locked.

- Pressure steady. Airlock purge.

Hodges! Come on.

Time to make the world

a better place.

- See you later.

- Bet on it.

- Welcome aboard.

- Always a pleasure.

- Johnny, my man. What it be like?

- Another day in paradise.

- I left something in your video.

- Are we talking Miss September?

Is it hot? Is it wet? Is it smooth?

Good morning.

I see you've been very busy.

Snyder and I have drifted the missile

sled over the site last night.

- We just stabilized the platform.

- And I calculated the new trajectory.

Good. When you finish, have Collins

and her men anchor the platform.

- We have to do the sounding first.

- That's not necessary.

This area is stable.

But even the smallest geological

defect can cause instability...

I don't want to see a stray missile

hitting some nice house.

Very well, take some soundings.

I'll get Collins to start excavating.

- Wait till I get the soundings.

- I don't have time to wait.

You have your orders.

- All set to go, Doc?

- Any time you're ready.

- Snyder, secure that hatch.

- Securing the hatch.

DSRV-2 to Seatrak.

We are secure for departure.

- Morning, campers.

- Morning, Captain.

- Snyder, would you slow down?

- You worried about my health?

- You're making me sick.

- Weren't we out of oatmeal?

- That's eggs.

- Not eating, Scarpelli?

No, I've got some work to finish.

I want you to take the day off.

That's an order.

Great, after breakfast

I could help you with a few sets.

No, you fix the leak

in the docking bay.

And after that,

you fix the starter in DRSV-1.

- But after that...

- You report to me.

I said it was Scarpelli's day off,

not yours.

That sound always

gives me the creeps.

It's just adjusting to the pressure.

- Snyder, call Collins for me.

- Can I finish eating first?

- You just talked to her...

- Damn it, Snyder!

A guy can't even finish breakfast

around here. Let's go.

- Now he needs a day off.

- More like a month.

Bullpen, this is Deepstar.

Please, acknowledge.

- Go ahead.

- How's it going?

Switch to video, please.

- She's all yours.

- I want a progress report.

Nothing to report. I've ordered

Hodges and Osborne to stop digging.

Burciaga noticed

some unusual soundings.

We think there's a cavern

under the site.

- Better take a look at it.

- No, I'm not going to waste time.

It's too late to change sites.

The Navy would shut us down.

They'll do that anyway. You can't

place a missile sled over a cavern.

Collapse it with explosives,

and put the sled on top.

According to the soundings,

the cavern is pretty deep.

I don't care how deep it is!

Blow it up if you have to.

I want that missile sled in place

before the end of the week.

I think he likes you, Collins.

Have a nice day.

What ajerk.

Seatrak to Seacat, come in.

Prepare an explosives package

right away.

- My eggs are cold.

- Put it in the microwave.

- That doesn't sound right.

- The rotor's jammed.

- Borrow that pen for a second?

- Help yourself...

There we go, that's got it.


- What was wrong with your pen?

- Nothing.

I don't stick it in garbage disposals.

- Fuel report you requested.

- Thanks, Mac.

- You have the duty roster, Snyder?

- It's on your desk, Captain.

- Did you get your work assignments?

- Yeah, I'm on top of it.

- What did Collins say?

- They found a cave under the site.

Did she give you any details?

What was the depth?

She said it was big, Scarpelli,

I don't know.

- Snyder said you found a cavern.

- Yes, under the excavation site.

- I'd like to take a look.

- I ordered them to collapse it.

- This is my only chance to study it.

- Seen one cavern, seen 'em all.

In 1848, the English ship The Valiant

reported that these waters contain...
