Synopsis for "Aquaman: Andromeda, Book Two"

An away team including Yvette Verne and Captain Feldt, the commander of the Andromeda, swim over to the alien ship. An engineer named Murthy attempts to hack into the ship's systems and open an access hatch. A strange symbol momentarily appears on his computer screen and the door opens. The away team enters the ship and finds it has a breathable atmosphere. As they investigate, Murthy realises that the ship should not be strong enough to survive atmospheric re-entry or withstand the pressures of the ocean. The moment he says this the ship begins to buckle and crack. A bridge that Yvette and Ivanov, another crew member, are standing on collapses and they fall down a chasm. At the bottom of the chasm, Aquaman saves them from being crushed by debris. Meanwhile, Black Manta and his crew arrive at the crash site.

Yvette tells the other crewmembers that she and Ivanov are alive and they will find their way back to the Andromeda, but don't tell them about Aquaman, who she recognises as "The King Under The Sea" from her father's stories. Aquaman leads them out of the ship and tells them that it is not an alien craft, but was in fact built by Atlanteans. Yvette takes the injured Ivanov back to the Andromeda, and Black Manta sneaks in after them. One of Manta's men spots Aquaman swimming near the crashed ship and tells Manta that he is also there.

On the alien ship, the rest of the away team find what appears to be the ship's engine room. Captain Feldt and Murthy are both entranced by the machine and Murthy is disintegrated by a surge of energy. This creates a shockwave from the ship which hits the Andromeda. Black Manta corners Anders, the communications officer, and gives him a memory stick. He tells Anders that if things get desperate, he should plug the memory stick into the Andromeda's communication system and give Manta access to it. In exchange, Manta will rescue him and return him to the surface.

Captain Feldt returns to the Andromeda with Burke, the other surviving member of the away team. While they are being examined by Zhen, the ship's doctor, Yvette notices Aquaman at a porthole and leaves the ship to talk to him. He tells her that the ship is a prison built to contain the "Bane of Atlantis", which was launched into space and somehow crashed back down to Earth. He tells her that the creature inside can reshape reality with a whim and manipulate the minds of others, warning her that the creature will turn her crew against each other. Indeed, on the ship Captain Feldt flies into a paranoid rage and attacks the others. He begins to choke Anders to death until Ivanov kills him with a knife in the head.
