Great Huygens' ghost! This is a disaster! For me, that is. Captain, daring Captain, lend me your ear. As a mariner, perhaps you will appreciate the magnitude of this crime.

I have been working on a treatise -- a most brilliant treatise, in all modesty -- on new astronomical navigation techniques that could revolutionze the exploration of the New World. And you ask, "Théo, why should this be a disaster, eh? You have been granted the right to present your paper to the Académie! Surely fame and fortune shall follow."

Captain, I say to you, the disaster is what I overheard in the Académie Club not one hour ago. Another scientist has stolen my ideas -- a base fraud! A common mountebank! Worse, this charlatan is to present my ideas to the quarterly presntational conference and exposition before me. Why? Why do these things happen to Théo Alexandre?

You are a captain, and from the smell of you I'd say you've had a command for some time now. I have need of your aid, Captain, and I will pay you what I can. Gold, as much as I can spare. If ffate smiles upon us, I will one day share my new navigational techniques with you as well.

This unknown quantity -- this imposter -- was aboard a Spanish vessel anchored near here. I ask you to find this vessel, and identify that thief of science. Find a coyp of the text, the notes, with a name. When you have found the notes, return to me.

I suspect I know who has stolen my techniques. I fear it may be my one-time colleague, long ousted from the Académie halls. Yes, I fear this charlatan may be none other than ... the rogue physicist Sonia Cabrero!
