ATLANTIC TO THE MEDITERRANEAN

There was no time to lose. Charley safely onboard, John and Dan cast off, with help from Hal, making sure they were not being tracked by the drug dealers supporting the Fourth Reich. John anticipated a boarding party. But none came.

 

"Captain Nemo."

 

"Yes Captain Storm."

 

"Please exit the Amazon in cruise mode."

 

"Copy that," replied the navigation computer.

 

The Swann gracefully cruised the Amazon at 10 knots for almost two days, solar wings folded, until the mouth of the river expanded into the South Atlantic. Then more anxiously John said: "Nemo, can you plot a course for Alexandria, Egypt, please. Full steam ahead."

 

"Full power Captain. Roger that. Mediterranean here we come."

 

John looked at Dan, mouthing 'Roger that.' Charley caught it. They all smiled. It was Hal interjecting of course.

 

The Swann's wings unfolded, and Nemo engaged all of the fuel cells, heading north, until the ship caught the trade winds. Elizabeth sprinted across the Atlantic doing better than 25 knots, also taking advantage of the currents. Five days later they sighted the Gibraltar Straights.

 

They were making good time, no doubt about it, but John knew a diving team could accomplish a lot in ten days. It would take them another 2.7 days to get to Alexandria, according to Captain Nemo.

 

While they were crossing the Atlantic, John, Charley and Dan tried to make more of the equipment they'd stolen from the Nazi camp.

 

"Okay Dan, what is this." John held up a watch and a rather complicated looking kind of headset.

 

"I'm stumped Skip. Give me a bit of time to work it out."

 

John strapped on the headset, and put the wristwatch on his arm. Charley rummaged around in the rest of the box of tricks. Dan was reading one of the thick black bound notebooks, trying to make head and tail of it all. The notes and diagrams followed the development of the technology. Dan noticed an entry that did not make sense.

 

"Hey Skip, that watch seems to have cost an extraordinary amount."

 

"Uhm huh." John looked to Dan waiting for a figure.

 

"$20 billion dollars."

 

"What this," said John holding up his arm. As he did so, the watch beeped. Then he felt a tingling sensation coming from the headset. The watch seemed to be talking to him.

 

"I don't think it's a watch Skip."

 

Charley chimed in, "There is something here about a 'RepliVator.' She kept reading.

 

"I think it's some kind of super computer," said Dan.

 

"No." Said Charley. "It is something to do with cloning and replicants."

 

"That's science fiction Charley," said Dan. "And I'm a Blade Runner."

 

"Yes," said John. "Maybe all of the above. But it is talking to me somehow."

 

Charley and Dan laughed, as though John had lost it.

 

"No, really. I think through this headset contraption." John looked serious. He had turned pale and was sweating.

 

...

 

 

 

It took nine days, nine hours for the journey from Manaus to Alexandria.
