Captain James Cook
In 1768 King George III of England orders an ambitious expedition to the Pacific Ocean to observe the Transit of Venus, and see the mythical southern continent. James Cook, an unknown petty officer, is controversially appointed as commander, choosing an unlikely collier to carry him and his men into dangerous and unknown water. After sailing to Tahiti, Cook proceeds to chart the coasts of New Zealand and Australia, beginning a glorious adventure spanning the oceans of the world.
