The Sky Is Falling
Seaview 'back in
Navy' episode! Typical calm efficiency in Control Room, wielding the mighty XO
Clipboard Of Power™.
**NEEDS MORE PICS**
Delivers message from helicopter for
Nelson from Trigger-happy Tobin.
Speculation - I got really irritated with
Tobin. :P Is interesting how Lee looks to Nelson for tacit permission to follow
Chip looks properly solemn along with rest of crew as Tobin updates
them. Dive is mostly reruns of stock footage. Orders Missile
Room to prepare torpedoes per Crane's instructions, then turns around
(giving very nice if brief rear view shot) to switch on nose camera.
Still calm while going through whirlpool, says they won't be able to hold
their course at their current speed.
Remains at Conn when Nelson, Crane and
Tobin move to Observation Nose to see the spacecraft. Watches
spacecraft on screen with Control Room crew. As men begin to panic when power goes out, Chip orders
loudly 'All hands stand fast' and to break out battle lanterns. Definitely
keeps crew from panicking.
on the men in the Control Room. Temporarily calms crewman who's starting to panic,
then stands back and allows chief to handle the crewman's second panic attack
by knocking some sense into him and settles crew back down. Good
Navy procedure as officers aren't allowed to hit enlisted crew.
Only Chief can get away with it. heh
Listens with rest of crew as small saucer settles on hull just over the
hatch. Again stays in Control Room while Nelson, Ski, Tobin and
Crane go off to see the saucer. Think he gets more conn time than
Crane does. :P Heads off to
supervise pumping detail to use snorkle to get fresh air moving through
At the periscope as Chip sees destroyer group approaching.
Exchanges relieved looks with Nelson as
Crane returns to boat.
