CO CDR Tom Chandler : According to Sean, you're the chosen, right? I would think a ship carrying the cure, labs trying to manufacture that cure, well... that would be the greatest threat possible to him.
Michener : We are strong because of our strength. We don't need to destroy anyone else.
CO CDR Tom Chandler : So you believe we have the cure?
Michener : I believe you think you do.
CO CDR Tom Chandler : And you've seen our instructions from the President, the Secretary of the Navy?
Michener : I've seen them. They're from months ago. They're obsolete.
CO CDR Tom Chandler : Well, that leaves me in a bit of a bind. We have standing orders from the previous administration, orders that are consistent with national protocols. And then we have you, the new president, issuing orders that don't seem to be in the national interest at all.
Michener : The national interest is saving what's left of this country. Sean Ramsey and our movement give the country the best chance at that.
CO CDR Tom Chandler : Convince me. Tell me how it all happened; how you came to this point, why you're so sure of what you believe.
XO Mike Slattery : [watching on a surveillance monitor] Is he trying to turn him or get the intel?
CO CDR Tom Chandler : Come on, Mr. President. You want off this ship, you're gonna have to convince me.
