we encounter
for the first time, the Orca -- the sophisticated floating laboratory
of Carter Primus. The story begins as Primus and his assistant Toni
are under attack by two masked men and one knocks Primus out. He and
Toni take the Orca out at high speed in pursuit and encounter the
giant yacht of Paul Kadopolis the richest Greek in the world. They
immediately come under attack by a large gun and they leave. It's
soon revealed that Kadopolis wants to take possession of a Primus
invention, the Triple D Unit which will allow the oil magnate to find
oil in the Lake Zeno and his time for finding that oil is dwindling
so he's desperate. He's offered to buy it from Primus but was refused
and now he wants no matter how. The next day a helicopter appears and
while Primus is below the sea they kidnap Toni. Primus agrees to help
Kadopolis and the Orca is airlifted to Lake Zeno and Primus is put in
a cell while Toni pretends to make friends with Kadopolis. Primus
takes his equipment down to find the oil but tricks Kadopolis and his
henchmen with a radio trick and gets the drop on them, saving Toni
and pitching Kadopolis overboard. The authorities agree to help
Primus return the Orca to Florida.
