Plot Summary: After abandoning their submarine Yamanami - which collides with a Russian submarine, Captain Shiro Kaieda and his crew are assigned to man a top-secret, U.S./Japanese nuclear vessel codenamed Sea Bat. However, during the Sea Bat's maiden voyage, Kaieda sends the submarine off its plotted course, causing a diplomatic rift between the U.S. and Japanese governments - who fight over possession of the vessel. The situation is further complicated when Kaieda renames the submarine Yamato and declares it an independent nation.
