Earth celebrates as astronauts return from several years in space - more specifically, an expedition to Mars. Disaster ensues, however, and the re-entry capsule is lost beneath the waves. Bridger and the SeaQuest must race against time to locate them, with the added complication of the local Asiatic government's interference in their search.
