Henry Bulman, a retired submariner from Her Majesty's Royal Navy, reactivates an abandoned Nazi U-boat and discovers a forgotten cache of deadly nerve gas. Taking advantage of his "good luck," Bulman decides to extort $20 million from the United States by threatening the lives of some 30,000 Americans. Assigned to stop Bulman or call his bluff, Steve dives to the submarine, bionically resists the water pressure, and boards the craft. But he is taken prisoner and then is faced with making a horrifying decision.
Admiral Prescott: There isn't a diver in the world that could get that outer hatch open at 300 feet.
Oscar Goldman: I was thinking of Colonel Austin.
Admiral: King Kong couldn't open a hatch at that depth!
(Steve proceeds to remove the door from a safe in the office).
Admiral: Good grief, is this a prerequisite of going to the moon?
Oscar: I'll explain it to you later.
Steve: Sorry to mishandle government property, admiral.
Admiral: That's ok, son. That's ok.
Oscar: Well if you excuse my choice of words, its good to see you in one piece.
Steve: Its good to be that way.
- This marks the debut of Admiral Prescott, played by William Sylvester. Prescott would return for the two-part premiere of Season 5, "Sharks". Sylvester had appeared on the show previously as Frederick Collins in "Outrage in Balinderry."
Why would Steve need a flashlight since in MANY other episodes he can see in the dark using night vision?
