  • The British Admirality assigns two officers, Richard Dale and Alan Duncan, to gather evidence to convict Captain Kidd of piracy in the English courts. They sail for New York to learn the whereabouts of Kidd, and posing as ordinary seamen, they join his crew. They learn that Kidd, the legendary swashbuckler of the seven seas, is not a a villain who scourges and plunders at will, but a man whose loyalty to England knows no bounds, a maritime adventurer who attacks only enemy French vessels and those of the pirates that sail against the British Empire. But can they keep him from being betrayed by his enemies and hanged?

  • In 1697, Richard Dale and Alan Duncan are sent on an "undercover" mission by the British Admiralty to find and gather information on the notorious pirate, Captain Kidd. The two agents soon join Kidd's crew and discover, to their surprise, that the Captain is a far different man than they had expected.
