While on the Christiane I, Sam provides Ockham with the coordinates that were sent to him by the Maxwell Group, however, Sam lies and says that he had found them in his room. Sam inquires about the deal that was made with Oscar Talbot, Ockham states that he is being paid for three months, Ockham then inquires about what Sam gets out of it, to which he replies answers.
SAM: We're within range today. It's the only chance we'll get for the next three weeks. OCKHAM: Where's you get this? SAM: His cabin. That night you broke us up. OCKHAM: Well if this is Black Rock, why doesn't he just go straight to it? SAM: Like I said, he's not telling us everything. OCKHAM: Is that supposed to be breaking news? SAM: Well, what sort of deal have you got with him? OCKHAM: He pays for three months at sea. SAM: Whether you find Black Rock in one or ninety days? OCKHAM: It's the standard deal if I don't get a cut of what he finds. SAM: Then that, can triple your money. OCKHAM: What's in it for you? SAM: Answers. OCKHAM: We'd need to cover our tracks.
OCKHAM: I don't wanna know. Alright, the coordinates are programmed. Follow the ship's directions, I'll cover. Mr. Talbot. Can I have a word?
In this activity, Sam is attempting to steer the ship towards the coordinates of -11.1784, 112.2363; in doing so he must utilize the sonar capabilities of the ship, avoiding collisions at any cost. The player must use the left and right keys on their keyboard to steer the ship and the up arrow key to increase the speed that the ship is traveling. Failure to correctly navigate the ship toward the destination without avoiding a collision, will result in an alarm sounding, and an accompanying clip. Correctly doing so will be triggered by a message counting down the distance to the target.
Ockham arrives and removes Sam from the helm stating that Talbot knows the ship is changing course. Talbot explains that the coordinates were insignificant due to the fact that the Maxwell Group is in the possession of Magnus Hanso's journal, which their search grid is based off of. Just as Talbot begins to put the incident behind them, the sonar device begins to beep, and Ockham believes that they have found the Black Rock.
SAM: Hey, hey what are you doing?
OCKHAM: He knows we've changed course. I should never have listened to you. TALBOT: The coordinates you found in my cabin are insignificant, Sam. Everyday, Magnus Hanso, the captain of the Black Rock, recorded the ship's position in a journal. My employers have that journal. Our search grid is based on it. Dozens of position logs throughout the Sunda Trench. What makes you think this one is any more important? SAM: I was given those coordinates by The Maxwell Group. His employers. OCKHAM: Oh, you found them in his cabin? TALBOT: I don't know what he's talking about. SAM: You're lying! They told me to come here. TALBOT: Sam, my employers have never made mention of you. How did they contact you? SAM: By email. By coded email. They sent a picture of my fiancée with a hidden message inside. It said "Sunda Trench", "Black Rock". They sent me streams of numbers that I had to decipher just to get those coordinates. OCKHAM: You put my business at risk. You put my boat at risk! What, for that? TALBOT: Gentlemen, I suggest we return to the agreed search plan. I'm willing to put this incident behind us. Sam? Agreed? SAM: Ockham. TALBOT: Mr. Ockham... SAM: I'm not lying. TALBOT: Turn the ship around. SAM: No! OCKHAM: Mr. Talbot. I think we've found Black Rock.
