The adventures of John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann. John Storm is an ocean adventurer and conservationist. The Elizabeth Swann is a fast solar powered boat. During a race around the world, news of the sinking of a pirate whaling ship reaches John Storm and his mate Dan Hawk. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the whale. This is a modern Moby Dick, the twist being that there is a happy ending for everyone featuring this $Billion Dollar Whale, even the whalers. Herman Melville would approve.

 

 

$BILLION DOLLAR WHALE <<<

 

In this chapter, with the Elizabeth Swann some 20 miles ahead of the nearest WZCC competitor, John finds out about the wounded whale from a radio broadcast. He contacts an expert at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the US, Bill Perrin, who is able to confirm that Kulo Luna has stopped sending location signals, but was on a course likely to intercept with the Elizabeth Swann. Bill also confirms that they are unable to help the whale.

 

John knows that an injured whale in these waters will be a ready meal for sharks - and will not last long unassisted.

 

Despite strong resistance from Dan, John makes a snap decision to go after the injured whale:

 

"We're going after her."

 

Confirming the same to Bill Perrin, who pledges any support they can muster.

 

 

THE BRIEF

 

For this scene, aim for 3 pages (sides) and 8 illustrations, suggested as:

 

1. Picture of Starlight falling behind the Elizabeth Swan, Dan looking past their wake through binoculars to Starlight in the distance. [Caption: Starlight hardly visible Cap]

2. John hears a radio news bulletin that a whale has sunk a Japanese pirate whaler, John imagine Moby Dick in his mind.

3. A second news flash tells John that the whale is wounded. He is worried about the whale.

4. John calling NOAA prompts Dan to question him about abandoning the race.

5. NOAA's Bill Perrin on phone to John. [Is this about Kulo?]

6. John on radio to Bill. [What have you got in place?]

7. Bill responding to question [Nothing, we're strapped for fuel]

8. John at helm on radio. [We're going after her]

 

These headings are only to guide you - some of the person to person pictures can be smaller (6 to a page size or insets) - to help you to plan your layout if you fancy illustrating this Scene.
