Mr. T and the team go on a boat-ride in Hawaii. While they are enjoying themselves, a storm suddenly occurs. The boat is wrecked, and they end up being marooned on an uncharted island. The team decides to wait in case someone arrives to pick them up. After a few days on the island, Garcia Lopez starts to lose hope. Mr. T convinces the team to try to find food and something they could use to get off the island. While Garcia is collecting bananas, he notices a periscope in the nearby river. He tells Mr. T and shows a picture he took of the periscope. Mr. T decides to investigate.
