When seaQuest goes on a search for a missing submarine full of French school children, Ford, Lucas, Dr. Westphalen, and Kreig’s rescue sub begins to sink dramatically to the ocean floor. In order to survive, they must jettison everything they can, on the rescue sub. They are forced to abandon the rescue sub for a life raft.
To make matters worse, a major storm, soon to be a hurricane, is growing on the surface above. Bridger has to decide if he should continue the search for the missing sub full of school kids, or rescue his crewmates stuck in the middle of a hurricane in a raft.
