Doug and Becca MacKenzie, two teenage orphans, are forced to live with their uncle after their parents mysteriously disappear. Their uncle, Fitzroy MacKenzie, is the sea captain of a research ship named Expedient. Doug and Becca over hear Fitzroy talk to an unusual passenger, and decide to do some snooping about.
