The year is 2041... For 6 months, the UEO has fought a losing war against the Macronesian Alliance, and for soldiers serving on the frontlines, every day is a struggle to survive. One ship and her crew lie at the center of this firestorm, defending the UEO against all odds in a world of eternal darkness; the world of the Submariner. The depths of the world's oceans are a cold, dark oblivion where sunlight is nothing more than a pleasant passing thought for those who live there. Yet this is the world in which we live... the home which we will defend. The UEO Atlantis DSV 8100 is the most advanced warship the world has ever seen, but with the tides of an unwinnable war turning against the UEO, the story of her crew unfolds, and the war becomes nothing more than the setting for a tale of survival and reluctant heroes who hold the fate of the world - and each other - in their hands...

(By Chronological Order...)

Episode 1 - Atlantis

Only a few short weeks have passed since the outbreak of the war against Macronesia, and the UEO, outnumbered and outgunned, is reeling in the face of nearly certain defeat. The Atlantis DSV and her crew are sent on a mission deep behind enemy lines to uncover the truth behind one of the most tragic losses of the war - the destruction of the seaQuest DSV...

Episode 2 - Shadows of the Phoenix

Far from the battlefields of the war in the Pacific, the crew of the Atlantis uncover a plot that threatens to destroy the UEO from behind a curtain of conspiracy. Who is responsible, and what they discover could lead to something much larger than anyone could comprehend...

Episode 3 - Rising Thunder

The epic conclusion to the first story arc of Atlantis DSV. With so many questions unanswered, two ships and two Captains set out on a long journey to unravel a dangerous conspiracy. As the world stands on the brink of armageddon, the UEO's future is as uncertain as the fate of the crew themselves. As they are hurled towards the most devastating climax of the conflict, the crew go boldly unto the breach...
... and not all of them will make it back home alive...

Episode 4 - The Silence Within

The Pacific lies in ruins, and the crew of the Atlantis DSV, still reeling from their most recent mission, find themselves recalled to duty following a dangerously aggressive series of attacks against European shipping on the coast of Cape Horn. But who is responsible?
While the European Allies prepare to go to war against the Macronesian Alliance, the crew of the Atlantis DSV discover that not everything is as plain as it appears. Captain Ainsley will ultimately find himself torn by an impossible decision: One which will either plunge the world even deeper in to war... Or bring the UEO to its knees.

Episode 5 - Shattered Sword

The war stands at a turning point, and the UEO holds its breath as the Atlantis is sent on the most dangerous mission of its career, deeper in to enemy lines than anyone has previously gone. The crew stands on a precipice, and are faced with their most desperate hour.
Nothing will be the same.

Episode 5 - Shattered Sword

It is the year 2043, and the war in the Pacific has ground to a bloody and bitter stalemate. Tasked with a mission that could tip the balance of power away from a heavily-entrenched Macronesian Alliance, Mark Ainsley and the crew of the UEO Commonwealth embark on a journey that threatens to tear them apart. Loyalties are tested and battle lines are drawn as they begin a desperate race against a clock that leads only to the total destruction of the United Earth Oceans.

 

CHRONICLES...

These short stories are intended as supplements to the main chapters of Atlantis DSV, and cover the events of the war from other perspectives, settings and characters. Often these events intertwine with those of the Episodes. "Chronicles" are written by both the writers and fans of the series...

In early 2041, the Aquarius DSV engaged in battle against the Alliance fleet - Among the first of many battles in her illustrious career. But in the heat of battle, they found something that would also be among the first of many shadows in a long and brutal war... On the eve of the biggest storm to ravage the Pacific, this was their first warning...

In March, 2041, the UEO carrier Ticonderoga engaged in one of the bloodiest battles of the Alliance War; an engagement that would become known throughout the fleet simply as "The Abattoir". Ryukyu trench would be a name that became synonymous with death amongst the subfighter corps of the UEO, and this is the story of just two of these ill-fated squadrons; the Rangers and Peacemakers. They would become known as "The Ghosts."
