The apparent death of the Hammersley’s newest recruit strikes straight at the heart of the ship’s close knit crew. There has been no sign of Ryan White (Dominic Deutscher), since he packed his bag and left Hammersley, but CO Mike Flynn (Ian Stenlake) has other things on his mind when the Navy ship comes across a fishing boat that has been almost destroyed by automatic weapon fire.
Four bodies are found, and the survivors appear terrified of the Navy personnel, one of them shrieking accusingly that the Navy was responsible for the slaughter. Back at NAVCOM, Maxine White (Tammy MacIntosh) tells Mike and XO Kate McGregor (Lisa McCune) that it is almost certain the fishing vessel was disabled by a boat owned by the GD Security company, a mercenary operation run by a former SAS operative, Garth Davidson (Jack Campbell).
When confronted, Campbell – dressed in combat gear – claims his boat had been attacked by pirates, and says it is likely the same pirates also attacked the fishing boat. Although his M.V. Sassy is carrying weapons, and a foreign diplomat, Mr Tagobe (Matt Okine), Campbell has all the necessary paperwork for the armaments.
Told to take Campbell to port for further questioning, the Hammersely crew checks out his vessel, and to the amazement of Bird (Danielle Horvat), Ryan is found hiding in a cabin below decks.
