I don't like any about.

- Neither do I.

The president is right, they need to be told.

- We go public on this thing, what did.

Nobody is talking about going public.

- It is secret or not secret.

You can trust these people.

- I don't trust any body.

This Russian thing its paper whole

project blow sky high.

Let us worry about that

when it happens.

Jesus, I can't believe it happens.

Let me get this straight.

You're saying there's an American on the

island of Svardlov, and you can not locate it.

And where the hell this Svardlov?

- There's a small island near the Arctic circle.

Well every country has done an exploration,

there claim for its own.

The Russians even put their troops,

time to time

And now you're telling us, you've lost this man

and you may've lost them to some Russians.

Telling you we have a diviation

with plan.

A man is four days over due

at the pickup point.

Why don't you let us handle it.

We do that kind of stuff all the time.

Man had to be a mining engineer.

- So why're you telling us now?

Because if there is an incident

We'll need all the help we can get.

Gentlemen, if you follow me. - How the hell

that we get ourself into a crap like this?

I've engineer this thing

and I will take the blame.

What is this project, Jim?

- The Sicilian Project.

We believe it could be the

ultimate defense system.

I know you all familiar with laser

technology, that's what we involved with.

Each one of those lights is a power station.

Each station, when activated...

will project a beam

from ground to infinity.

These beams finally connect make

an invisible screen, like a wall.

No missile can penetrate it.

- Is this theory you talking about, or does it work?

Yes it works.

There is only one problem.

In order to install the system to make it function

we need a self contain power source a large one.

The success of our project is depends upon our

locating a specific mineral, byzanium.


I never never heard of it.

I surprises,very few people have it. - And you

think there may be some one Svardlov is that it?

That's all we think.

- So we sent a man in.

Hope you get him out, because if

you don't, if the Russians pick him up...

we're going to be scraping on

Kremlin next for five years.

Washington Central, this is Unit 23

Requesting toll service at Jefferson Memorial.

The Sicilian Project?

- Yes, captain that's what KGB calls it.

Would you read me that report again please?

Americans interested in rare minerals,

may be related to military operations.

Code name, The Sicilian Project.

- What could be so precious...

that Americans risk this kind of adventure?

Are you a chess player?

I played it when I was a student. Why?

Do you know Isaac Boleslavsky?

Of course I know him.

He was a great chess master.

May be the greatest of them all.

Many of the significant variations in the

game were invented by Boleslavsky...

and one of them was called

the Sicilian Defense.

All right, Marganin, lets leave it for now.

We talk again tomorrow.

You know, there wasn't for Dirk Pitt we were be

back at square one and that mining engineer

who streached out dead on a Russian island.

- Who is Dirk Pitt?

All of Suddenly he's involved in the

Sicilian Project not never heard of him.

Used to be a Navy man.

After his service he took early retirement and since

then he and I have tackle quiet a few things together.

He works for you?

- Well Sometimes he does, sometimes not.

Depends on the job.

Looks like something that can't be done,

chances are take a crack at it.

Otherwise dump down.
