December 7th, 1980. The United States Naval aircraft Carrier Nimitz is the finest warship in the world. She is carrying a nuclear payload that can level a continent. And a fleet of fighter jets that can deliver it. Her crew is a handpicked one-like Captain Matthew Yelland, who endured the torture of the Viet Cong and did not break. And Warren Lasky, the civilian "think-tank" who designed the warship to weather any battle. But a nightmare journey has brought her to a place where no amount of brains or courage can help.
