Synopsis

Plot

A humanoid skull was found in China in 1929. It was a discovery of extreme importance to the field of anthropology.
The skull was unlike any known fragment of early man. After preliminary study, the skull was christened "Sinanthropus Pekinensis" (Peking Man) and was delivered with great care to the Peking Medical College, where it remained for 12 years.

With Peking about to fall to the invading Japanese in 1941, anthropologists made a decision to send the fossil to the United States for safekeeping. Arrangements were made to transport the skull to the port city of Tsingtao, where it was to be loaded aboard the U.S.S. President Harrison for shipment to America. While the skull was enroute to Tsingtao, however, the ship was captured by the Japanese. And the skull mysteriously disappeared in the confusion of war-torn China.

This is where you come in, more than 40 years later. While doing some exploratory research for the Triton Oil Company off the southern coast of Chile, you discover a sunken freighter. Being a history buff with a mild interest in anthropology, you have a hunch that something valuable may be aboard the ship. After clearing the rust off of the side of the freighter, you realize that the Bristol Cadget was probably a British vessel. The more you look, the more fascinated you are. You prepare for a thorough investigation.
