Barry Hopper is a Navy SEAL. He is wounded during a mission gone wrong near Pakistan. He is evacuated to the USS Colorado and then taken to Sainte Marina.


His team undertakes a mission near Pakistan which results in his wounding. His commanding officer Gil Langston arranges for them to be evacuated aboard the USS Colorado. Fisher, the team's medic, cares for Hopper. The pick-up goes smoothly and Langston greets the commanding officer Captain Marcus Chaplin, thanking him. The executive officer Sam Kendal asks him why they were being pursued by the Pakistani Navy and he declines to answer. Once he is alone with his team he questions his subordinate James King "what the hell happened back there?"

Soon after boarding the sub gets orders to fire a nuclear strike against Pakistan. Chaplin questions the order because it came through a secondary channel.

When Langston hears that Chaplin has questioned the order he storms the bridge with King. Chaplin is relieved of his command and Langston tries to force Kendal to follow the order. The action is cut short when the USS Illinois fires a Tomahawk missile at the Colorado. The sub dives just in time but still sustains damage.

Langston and King go to evacuate the rapidly flooding sick-bay, fearing for Hopper's safety. They are able to get their man out but Langston is killed by a bolt thrown by a rupturing bulkhead as he tries to seal the compartment.

Chaplin takes the Colorado to a NATO outpost on the island of Sainte Marina to regroup. King takes Langston's body ashore and stores it in the freezer of the small island's bar. Fisher takes Hopper to the medical facility on the island. Shortly after their arrival the USA launches a nuclear strike against Pakistan. When Lieutenant Grace Shepard visits the facility Hopper deliriously calls out that their intel was wrong and they killed the wrong people.[1]
