Captain Courage. The “burly skipper of a trans-oceanic freighter finds himself thrown back centuries to relive the age of the buccaneers and the rovers of the Spanish Main.” Captain Courage, as his men call him, is washed overboard when his freighter is struck by lightning, and he awakens in a ship, where an old sea dog tells him he is stuck in the “sea of lost ships,” where “time has stood still...for many centuries.” Captain Courage proves himself to the men on the “finest ship to ever wear a sail, with a crew savage enough to ward off any evil” and then has pirate adventures as a hero, defeating evil pirates.
