Danny (Daniel) Hawk is an electronics genius and computer wizard. 

He was a child prodigy, who signed on with John Storm once they had established that they have a common interest in technology applications, especially Artificial Intelligence and development. Thus, he is constantly monitoring the Elizabeth Swann's Captain Nemo, and sometimes tweaking Hal and Captain Nemo.

John took a chance on Dan, who when they met, spoke different languages. Rather than engage a psuedo cabin boy, like Jim Hawkins in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, as was usual in days of old, John decided on a sporty geek. It was a good bet.

Dan turned out to be mature beyond his years in the responsibilities he was prepared to take on, and very capable.

Dan is one of the main supporting characters in this Treasure Island story. He is superstitious, wary of snakes and large spiders. The thought of coming face to face with pirate remains, scares him, as does the occult, voodoo and aliens. He also hates going anywhere near the Bermuda Triangle.

Apart from girls, his current interests revolve around computers and robotics. He is also into renewable energy, fast electric bikes, fast electric cars and fast Net Zero, blue water transport. He would like to see a sustainable world, such as based on renewable hydrogen, or other green energy supplies.

For all these reasons, Danny is chief engineer on the Elizabeth Swann; a kind of tech heaven for a technophile; an enthusiast of technology. Dan found that by connecting the CyberCore nano computer to Hal, that he (or John) is able to hack military mainframes such as NORAD when any faction threatens the security of the Elizabeth Swann.

Dan (to his mates) relies on John Storm for his lead in these adventures, helping to get the duo out of tough scrapes.

 

 

 

 

 

Only gold, silver and gemstones were worth anything to captains of old. The currency was easy to trade and did not corrode, so ideal to be secreted in the most inhospitable environments. Paper money is worthless, when the value can rise and fall, without anything tangible to back the promises written thereon. In the modern world, with rampant inflation and cost of living crises, we'd have to agree with the pirates.
