You have to tell us why. We will be pondering

Ant! Yeah? You haven't blinked for ten minutes.
Look at it, Fontaine.
I don't want to close my eyes and miss this.
Anyway, Jeffrey hasn't blinked either.
Jeffrey doesn't need to blink.
Oh, that would explain why he wins all our staring contests.
What you hold in your hands - this efemycron -
could unlock the secrets of the sea
and hopefully locate lost Lemuria itself.
Great. How does it work?
Oh, well... Do you know what these symbols mean?
No. Do you know what parts of Earth these point to?
I wouldn't have a clue.
Are you being evasive again?
No, I'm genuinely quite lost here.
This remarkable efemycron is getting a little less remarkable.
Nektons, World Oceans Authority deep sea mapping satellite is falling to
Earth. It's set to crash in the ocean a few miles from you.
I'm sending the coordinates.
Those coordinates, it's a marine reserve.
Yes, and the satellite's thruster fuel is toxic.
If it leaks, the contamination would threaten every living thing
in the area.
Ant? Yeah, I know, the secrets of the efemycron will have to wait.
We're needed. I'm glad you understand.
You can probably blink now.
I can't. I understand.
No, I think my eyelids are stuck to my eyeballs.
Fiction, on our way.
FICTION: Hurry, impact in five, four, three, two,
My family are explorers.
We have been for generations.
While others look up to the stars, we know there are an infinite number
of things that shine in the darkness below.
There are things lurking in the seas that long ago vanished into myth.
My family are the Nektons and we explore the Deep.
We're coming up to the crash site.
Nektons, suit up.
Go ahead, Nereus. So, according to Fiction,
the satellite has been mapping the sea floor for years.
Mapping under the sea?
With infrared ocean-penetrating radar, targeted sonar, the works.
And everything is stored on the satellite's hard drive.
The most pressing issue is still the leaking toxic fuel.
We have to find it before it harms any sea life.
That just got a lot easier.
There's a locator on the hard drive.
I think I'm transferring the signal to you now.
Wait, no...no, I've just turned the lights off.
OK. Now. There.
The World Oceans Authority will be on the surface to collect
That must be it.
That can't be the whole satellite.
ANT: It's the hard drive. It must have broken off.
KAIKO: The rest of the satellite will be further down.
We'll keep searching. Kids,
take the hard drive to the surface to meet the World Oceans Authority.
FONTAINE: On it, Dad.
It's not stopping.
Thanks. Real nice.
Here, we found the hard drive but we're still searching for the...
Right. The mapping data in there sounds interesting.
We'd love to learn more...
Yeah, you're welcome.
Are you serious? That was weird.
Ant and Fontaine, the World Oceans Authority just gave an ETA.
They're 20 minutes away.
But if they're 20 minutes away...
Then who was that?
KAIKO: Kids, what's happening?
We might have just accidentally
handed the hard drive to an impostor. What? Impostor?
Don't worry, Mom. You and Dad keep looking for that satellite.
We'll get it back.
ANT CRIES OUT
Ant, are you OK?
I'm fine. Go after him.
Time for some answers.
Whoa, you're not shaking me off.
That's enough of that.
Now, let's see if you can keep up.
Who are you?
Catch me if you can.
Ant! Don't worry, Fontaine.
Jeffrey and I have him in our sights.
ROBOTIC VOICE: It doesn't look very impressive.
Nothing is as impressive as you, Aria.
We've been over this. You sound displeased.
The almighty Nektons were there.
And? Well, they barely offered any resistance.
I was hoping they'd be more of a challenge, you know, like...
What was that?
That was the Nekton children attempting to breach the airlock.
OK, Jeffrey, what's our plan of attack?
You're asking your fish how to gain entry to a submarine?
He's very insightful.
You have a whole human here, Ant, who can communicate with words.
OK, human, what's our plan of attack?
I don't know, brute strength?
It's time we met properly.
Aria, stop the ship.
Did you just stop a whole submarine?
I don't think so.
Hold on, Ant. That seemed too easy.
Oh, Fontaine, always the sceptic.
Sometimes, things just...
Ant, Ant, can you hear me?
Ant, I think the ship's scrambled
communications which means you clearly
can't hear me telling you this.
Antaeus Nekton, it is now safe for you to exit your suit.
Sorry, I'm making a rule not to
trust weird disembodied voices who know my name.
The air is breathable.
Jeffrey, stay and guard the exit.
Ant, are you crazy?
Where are you going, Ant?
Jeffrey, you and I really need to train him better.
My name is Alpheus Benthos.
I wanted to meet you.
Meeting on the boat wasn't good enough for you?
Ant! She sure is persistent, isn't she?
My sister! Is fine.
Aria, make her more fine.
I'm not sure this is an improvement, Jeffrey.
So, you are destined to be my nemesis, Antaeus.
I'm kind of busy most days.
I don't have a lot of time for nemesis-ing,
so how about you just give me back the satellite hard drive?
Here, take it.
It doesn't change our destiny.
This sub is amazing.
Where'd you get it? I created it.
It runs on a nuclear fusion system,
faster than anything else beneath the...
Your pilot's chair has a cup-holder!
Yes, the pilot's chair has a cup-holder.
I can't see any crew.
Are they hiding? Is your sub crewed by ninjas?
An artificial intelligence - Aria - performs most tasks.
Aria? Augmented Response Intelligent Application.
Oh, the disembodied voice.
We tried the artificial intelligence thing once. It did not go well.
Decided to go back to regular intelligence.
The risk of contamination from the satellite is increasing.
Your parents still haven't found it.
What? How do you know?
Mom, Dad, do you read?
Oh, no, they can't.
I'm jamming the signal.
Why are you spying on us?
Because I was the one who hacked
into the satellite and brought it down.
Why? Well, partly to meet you.
Mostly for what the satellite held and what you gave me.
I just downloaded the most
comprehensive map of the ocean floor ever created.
Everything that has ever been swallowed by the ocean,
the secrets of the sea.
But I'm more interested in finding Lemuria.
Yes, the sunken city we both seek, and once I find Lemuria,
I will find the device to control
He doesn't know about the Terror.
What are you doing here?
The efemycron is the key to finding Lemuria, Alpheus.
We must retrieve it from the Nektons.
Wrong, I now have everything I need.
I don't need your ancient relics.
Updating. The Nektons have located the satellite.
I'd say it fused with the ocean floor when it cooled.
Well, if we can't take the satellite off the sea floor,
then we'll take the sea floor, too.
That's actually a very good plan.
That should do it.
Warning, the experimental power source has been exposed to water.
It has now become volatile.
A chain reaction will cause the satellite to explode in exactly nine
minutes 53 seconds.
What? Nine minutes 51 seconds.
Mom, Dad, hello.
Aria, deactivate scrambler.
Deactivating. Mom, Dad,
the satellite power source has been exposed to water.
- Where are you, Ant? - It doesn't matter.
Get rid of that thing before it explodes. Nine minutes, 32 seconds.
Set a timer for nine minutes and 20 seconds.
9.15, 9.14, 9.13...
Don't be foolish, Ant.
There's nothing you can do.
Fontaine, I'm outside the airlock.
We need to leave, now.
She's not getting in here.
Huh, you think? See, outside, she didn't have any leverage.
I'd stand back if I were you.
Nice rescue, Jeffrey.
Ant, stop. You can't leave.
I erased that hard drive.
There's nothing on it.
It's not important any more.
Hitting manual release.
Let's get out of here.
Well, this thing looks warmer.
It is going to blow. Anywhere but here.
Nereus, any suggestions?
I can't see any alternatives nearby.
Nereus, meet Mom and Dad with the Aronnax.
We're coming. ALPHEUS: No, you're not.
You have to be kidding me!
I'm shutting you down and you're coming back with me.
Ant, you and I are linked.
I'm not letting you sacrifice yourself.
You have some really serious issues.
I can't move.
Why are you doing this?
What do you want? I'm trying to save you, Ant.
Don't you see, you're the only one who might understand?
Listen, this whole nemesis thing is going to have to wait.
My parents are in danger.
ARIA: Alpheus, six minutes, 38 seconds.
I have to help them.
You get that, right? Even nemeses have parents.
No, I don't.
You have to come back with me, Ant.
He really doesn't.
Let's get out of here.
I am not giving up on you.
ARIA: Alpheus, you must clear the
area and get to a minimum safe distance.
No, not without Ant.
Then I must take action.
What are you doing?
Obeying your own programming, protecting you from imminent danger.
Dad, Mom! Kids.
What was that? Oh, my nemesis.
Since when do you have a nemesis?
Can we worry about that later?
That thing's about to blow.
It is and there's nowhere on Earth that it's not going to cause harm.
Wait, that's it.
We have to bring it aboard the Aronnax.
Hold on, you want to bring an imminent explosion into our home?
We need to fire the core into orbit.
Ant, did you ask Jeffrey for a plan of action again?
NEREUS: Two minutes, 23 seconds. The solar ski tubes.
We'll re-route all power to one tube.
That won't give us enough propulsion for escape velocity.
But I can use the Aronnax to get us more.
OK, everyone, I have to go deep and rise very fast.
Hang on tight.
NEREUS: One minute, 11 seconds!
KAIKO: Here we go.
This is going to be rocky.
Hang on, little buddy.
Loading solar ski tubes now.
Re-routing all power to tube one.
Get ready. We're going to take off
in a way submarines really shouldn't.
Yes! If we got the time wrong and we haven't sent it high enough,
it's going to fall down on top of us, right?
This may not have been Jeffrey's best idea.
Three, two, one.
We've hit zero.
Unless my counting was wrong.
You were counting in your head?
I guess I got confused.
TRIUMPHANT CHEERING AND LAUGHTER
ARIA: Every piece of data on processing
tells me that should not have been possible.
They did it. I told you,
Antaeus Nekton and his family are more than they appear.
A true nemesis.
Thank you, Ant.
And it's even more beautiful because we didn't explode with it.
Ant, are you OK?
Normally not exploding is a good thing.
It's just, that guy, Alpheus.
Who is he?
He's a deluded young man, and dangerous.
You know him?
I've encountered him.
He has a map of the entire underwater world now.
He said he was going to use it to find Lemuria, where he can control
something called the Terror.
Nereus? The Terror is ancient,
a force capable of worldwide cataclysm.
Fortunately, you have the efemycron.
Yeah, but if we don't know how to
use it, it's just an impressive lamp.
We're explorers, Ant. We figure out mysteries.
We'll figure this one out, too.
Wait! Stay right here.
Is he coming back or...
We were trying to work out where it pointed on the planet.
It aligns to the stars.
Er, you can blink, Fontaine.
No, I think my eyelids are stuck to my eyeballs.
KAIKO: All of those points, those symbols.
NEREUS: Every one of them significant to the Lemurian Empire.
But what are they? I don't know.
But let's find out.
The Nektons try to stop a fallen satellite's fuel from polluting a marine sanctuary. But someone else is interested in the satellite - Alpheus Benthos, who is intent on finding Lemuria before them!
