This chapter finds us in the midst of battle preparation. We are in the CDC on the special bridge and the Submarine Captains on the converted subcarrier are definitely in command.
The admiral became a greater hero in my book when he responded to the Quartermaster statement, "A Trench is a big place. Give them time sir."
Do you think the Admiral's response was appropriate?
The USS Alaska sits 3,000 feet deep on the west side and the USS North Dakota sits 3,500 feet on the east side of the Puerto Rico Trench. Equipped with 'Red Mercury' enhanced nuclear warheads.
Sounds to me that they will kill anything they don't recognize or understand?
So tell us, why was a Tsunami warning not issued for Cuba and Miami?
Can the USS Alaska and USS North Dakota resist an ever-increasing gravity anomaly and engage the four Devil Rays headed their way?
The Anegada Trough...no need looking forward to Hell. You are already there...right?
Eagles shielding the Subs...locked in freefall and battling the Devil Rays. Can the Submarines make this strategy work before they reach zero barriers at 13,124?
This intense battle will come to be known as the 'Battle at the Midnight Zone.'
