An unnamed Arabian Red Sea power has deployed a weapon capable of knocking American U-2 spy planes out of the sky. The government assigns the Seaview
to investigate. Captain Crane goes undercover, but the secret police are waiting and kill his contact. Worse, General Gamal is aware of the Seaview
and has plans to deal with it. To survive, the crew must change the mission from reconnaissance to sabotage. The matter is further complicated when Major Amadi approaches Crane to request asylum in exchange for help destroying the weapon. Crane reluctantly agrees - but is Amadi really a defector interested in peace?
