In a Norwegian glacier during the Second World War a Nazi officer makes an extraordinary discovery - the most legendary ship of all time. Sixty years later Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon - a top-secret, state-of-the-art military vessel disguised as a heap of junk - reap the terrible rewards of this find. In the Persian Gulf they encounter a cruise ship full of dead and dying. As Cabrillo attempts a rescue, the stricken liner erupts into a fireball. Cabrillo escapes with his life, and one survivor. When he decides to probe deeper into this mystery, he finds a powerful cult obsessed with the end of the world. It is a discovery that sees the Oregon and her crew racing against time to prevent a sinister madman from using the secrets of the past to destroy the future.
