Outline

Nikki is still angry with ET that he returned aboard the ship when they are trying to build a relationship, despite his efforts to convince her he did not have a choice in the matter without raising suspicion. Hammersley is diverted to intercept a SIEV (Suspected Illegal Entry Vessel) which has collided with coral and sunk. They recover the survivors but Kate and Nikki are in dire jeopardy when 3 of them turn the rescue into a hostage situation, and an innocent child in need of medical help fights for survival. ET struggles to keep his feelings for Nav in check as control of the ship is slowly taken away and they are ordered to sail for Papua New Guinea or risk deaths.

Mike and the guys try to get the ships course headed for a rendezvous with a SAS team capable of retaking the ship but the hostage takers realise the deception and start a gunfight in the engine room. As time runs out, Mike orchestrates a daring raid which subdues both the hostage takers and the hostages long enough for control to be restored and the day to be saved. In the aftermath, Nikki seems to slowly forgive ET and is glad he is with her now.

Guest actors: James Stewart, Anthony Edwards, Ray Tiernan, Michelle Ayala.
