Welcome to the
Second Generation and continuation of the ‘new’ Voyage to the
Bottom of the Sea.
In our original
storyline, the ‘men of the boat’ had what normal, real
submariners would have in their lives - wives, families,
sweethearts, and all the trials and tribulations that go along
with a ‘real’ life, on and off the boat. In that vein,
we now present the children, friends, and others that make up
the ‘Next Generation’ (for want of a better term) of the
Nelson Institute for Marine Research. It is still populated by
Cranes, Nelsons, Mortons and many other familiar names, as well
as a new influx of crew. There is now a new boat – the
Harriman Nelson, a renewed vision, and new, exciting, and
different adventures for the crew and families of the NIMR.
Pearce Nelson, son of
Admiral Harriman Nelson
Karen Davis Nelson, is a Naval Academy graduate who comes
back to the NIMR at the request of the new director,
Admiral Lee Crane, to head a new project - a
new boat that is to be named after his late father. Already guiding
the project is
Robert C. Crane
(RC), Lee’s son by
Connors, who is now the Director of
Development at the Institute. He, in turn, is assisted by
Weaver-Morton's oldest child, and
Morton, their youngest.
Chip and Matty
are now estranged from their son,
Drew has left the Navy on the bequest of
Coldsmith Briggs, III, the now ex-Director of the
CIA. Michael has a long history with the Institute, not a good
one by the judgment of Seaview’s senior staff, that dates
back to its beginnings.
You will meet
Lee Crane’s other child,
whose mother was
Aliysha el Fayad.
Her connection to the CIA, as
well as to the Institute, will be revealed here.
