The Quests land themselves smack dab in the heart of a seafarer's fantastic and nightmarish yarn, complete with a ghost ship, a prowling sea monster, a hold full of coffins, and hidden treasure.

En route to Sumatra, the Quests spot the Star of Borneo, a Dutch freighter declared missing in the Java Sea. Landing their aircraft on deck, they find the ship seaworthy but deserted. As they discover and read the captain's log, baring a tale of woe and horror, an amphibious sea monster ventures out from the ship's shadows to destroy their plane. Stranded and unable to call for help, the Quests have to survive the night to build an escape raft in the morning, but circumstances force them to take an immediate stand against the monster for survival. Aiding them somewhat is the ship's Chinese cook, Charlie, whom they find half-frozen in the galley freezer. Written by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


Whether deliberately or accidentally, the Sea Haunt sea monster is similar to the Creature from the Black Lagoon, although it is somewhat more dinosaur-like. The creature, and the entire episode, are somewhat reminiscent of the horror of H. P. Lovecraft, and the claustrophobic atmosphere aboard ship is unique in the series. See more »


The flares fired by Bannon and Quest are depicted as exploding. Maritime distress flares do not explode; they burn for anywhere from two to six minutes. See more »


Hadji: Don't worry, Bandit. Nothing will happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.
Jonny Quest: THAT'S a happy thought.
