MORGAN'S TREASURE SHIP - T-ISLAND SCREENPLAY
ISLAND - Was a pirate secret location, known only to a small number of
captains by that name. But as piracy became unfashionable with mass hangings, the numbers
of those in the know, dwindled. Until, all that remained was a location
carved in wood. Generally hidden somewhere safe by the pirate concerned.
This location was useless without a chart giving the exact position that
each pirate buried their stash. The maps made on parchment, were handed down
to the next generations, by way of inheritance free of taxes.
It bothered John that he had been on Providence Island, seen the Golden Aztec Skull, and found other clues missing from the puzzle, but still did not understand the wooden carving he'd found with the remains of the famous privateer; Henry Morgan, although at least the wooden marker had helped to identify the Colombian Archipelago, from where Huntington had found the cave where Blackbeard had stashed his hoard.
Lord Huntington and Captain Tremaine still had much of the cave gold onboard the Hispaniola, since the mutineers had not had time or resources to shift it, but they did not have the golden Aztec Skull. They decided to leave re-acquisition of the priceless artifact to the Colombian Navy, since it was in their domain, along with Peru, and had bid John, Cleopatra and Dan farewell, as they headed out into the sparkling turquoise-blue Caribbean, back to England, to report on their adventures to their Geographical Society.
Not so content, John puzzled over the missing loot, attributed to Henry Morgan. Two pirates at different times, apparently at the same geographical location. Blackbeard, more or less accounted for.....
John deciphers code on wooden carving with help from Dan and Cybercore Genetica. Putting the Swann into stealth mode, so invisible to blockade, John dives to find the privateer's sunken treasure, thinking in cave, but actually discovers a whole ship, laden with gold, silver and gemstones; huge cargo. He videos ship in water, and holds recording as evidence and schedule of contents. But is very careful not to disturb or remove anything from the wreck. Conscious of the heritage value, and wanting to negotiate a legally binding agreement as to salvage and possible listing oft the shipwreck as a UNESCO heritage site.
