Captain Homer Tzavaras is an ordinary archaeologist and sailor with an extraordinary dream. Armed with his own brilliance and his trustworthy crew he sets off to rationally and scientifically discover the truth behind the supposed adventures of Odysseus. But with dauntless Homer it will take more than mighty storms, ancient ruins, and mysterious deathtraps to frighten him as he seeks the real truth of the matter and tries to make his way back home with the truth. Homer and his crew soon find themselves pursued across the seas by Pollux Laertes, the scheming millionaire who wishes to obtain the grand relics which they have found. It will be up to Brilliant Tzavaras, Seasoned Yeorgi, Gold-oriented Seymour Black, the Enigmatic Nestor, Young Drake, and the others to rationalize the irrational, place the unscientific into reality, get to the bottom of the ancient mysteries, and escape from the dark, swirling seas.
