2012 - In an increasingly uncertain defence environment, a deadly new arms race has begun. In an attempt to secure her boundaries, Britain has deployed the very latest sub-sea military technology.

Beneath and beyond the front line, these are the adventures of the HMS Goliath. A 55,000 tonne M-Class nuclear stealth submarine, prowling 5,000 metres below the surface. Manned by idiots.

The idiots in question consist of lunch-loving Captain Paul Wade, old school Commander Alison Fairbanks and the frustrated Lieutenant Jack Trainor (pronounced "Tren-oor" apparently).
