    Part 1: Stasis

    Part 1: Stasis

    At Beckett Station in Antarctica, Global energy company Advantage prepares for an expedition unlike any other. A crew of five will spend two days aboard the state-of-the-art submarine Virgil, as it slowly descends to the bottom of a newly discovered deep sea fissure. The voyage hasn’t even begun and already marine biologist Dr Marion Straker finds herself at odds with the clashing egos and fawning yes-men of the Antarctic base. And worse than that is the doubt. The inescapable feeling that she doesn’t deserve to be there.
