SEptember, 2001. On its last leg homeward, from Pearl Harbour (Hawaii) to San Diego, the USS Constellation hosts a jolly 'tiger cruise' for USNavy, Marines and USNAF relatives, mainly minors ('Navy brats'). Attitudes and emotions vary from simple joy to open frustration, the worst brat being XO commander Gary Dolan's daughter Maddie, who wants him to refuse a promotion to command for a shore job. Then the news of the WCC terror crisis changes everything, as the crew is recalled to war footing. Written by

One of my friends... their parents worked in those towers. A girl in my class... her dad is a firefighter. I never got tired of looking at them. Those towers. They were just so big and cool. The way the sun would reflect off them... Everything's gunna be so different now.
