Previously On The Theoretical Science Foundation:
Having secured the prisoners in the gymnasium, our attention was suddenly drawn back to the monitoring room by the blaring alarm.
Our radar expert, Dick (Kevin's G-Man), checked the scanner and revealed that a large, submerged, object was approaching the base.
Our best course of action was to take out one of the subs (The Yemoja) to investigate.
Joined by Dr Jill Davidson, a scientist qualified to pilot the submersible, we changed into appropriate clothing, secured our weapons, and boarded the craft.

Mere seconds out of the underwater dock, Buck (my explorer) spotted a large flipper through one of the view ports, and suddenly this...
|Mysterious image sighted on the radar!|
Tessie" were true. We were "eye-to-eye" with a 30ft plesiosaur, which should have died out 80 million years ago.
Some of our crew were shocked by the sight, but Freya (Clare's photojournalist) had the good sense to start snapping photographs.
The dinosaur had other ideas and started circling our sub, then nipping at it.
To make matters worse, as we tried to decide what to do, a second creature appeared, a smaller plesiosaur that Buck deduced was Tessie's mate.
Jill turned the sub back towards the base, but not before one of the creatures had come close to breaking the observation dome, so Dick fired off a torpedo at it, wounding it quite severely.
We got back into the underwater dock... and, as we started to disembark, that's when things really went wrong.
Somehow distracted Buck slipped as he made for the gantry, falling into the water, grabbing hold of Father Ned (Simon's priest) as he fell.
Ned, in turn, caught Jill - the last of us to leave the sub - and knocked her into the water as well.
Just as two dinosaur heads emerged from the water nearby.
Oynx (Erica's cat burglar), who had been the most affected by the appearance of the plesiosaur in the first place, had regained her senses and threw a rope towards her splashing colleagues.
Father Ned took a couple of bites from one of the creatures, but Onyx managed to drag him out, while Dick unloaded a fire extinguisher into the plesiosaur's face, scaring it off.
Jill, unfortunately, wasn't so lucky. The other dinosaur grabbed hold of her and dragged her down. Buck tried to swim after her, but his initial bad fall had rather discombobulated him and he cramped up before he could get far.
Using a pole she had found on the dock, Freya helped Buck out of the water.
But Jill was never seen again.
