>>So still was the great beast that he might have been floating in deep space, the last beacon of some long dead space-traveling race - except that he was making croaky noises that would have sounded more appropriate coming out of a two-inch long tree frog than the archaic remnant of a super race.<< isbn="0-06-056668-X"
On a clam Sunday afternoon in transit to Yankee Station from Subic Bay PI, our starboard lookout suddenly reported a dark surface contact ten degrees off the bow. We'd had NO prior surface radar contacts!
By the time the OOD (me) reacted to this report, there were two contacts which then merged in to one as we both watched. The bridge gyro-compass repeater indicated no bearing drift which meant CIM was on a collision course with this UFO (Unidentified Floating Object) . . .
We were already in extemis as CIM's bow cut into the UFO's last known position. so, we looked for debis and advised the fantail man overboard watch to do the same.
