Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is an underwater craft propelled by atomic power. Call her "The Explorer" and you know her purpose. Few have seen her, less have been on her, but many have either gained or suffered because of her. "The Explorer" is no ordinary submarine and her skipper is no ordinary man. His name is only known to a few - Captain Fathom.
