Horatio Hornblower begins his naval career, but a deadly feud with a despicable mate is causing complications.
Captain Keene (Michael Byrne) of 'The Justinian', Hornblower's first ship also starred as Major Nairn in Sharpe (1993), a contemporary UK television series also set in the Napoleonic Wars and based on a series of historical novels, in this case Bernard Cornwell.
Midshipman Jack Simpson:
We were just catching up on old times, Mr. Hornblower.
Midshipman Horatio Hornblower: These are new times, Mr. Simpson. You have no hold over us here.
When they are supposed to be stranded in a ship's boat in the Atlantic, out of sight of France, the coast is plainly visible behind the French captain of the Marie Galante when he and Hornblower stand-off with guns just before the Indefatigable is sighted.
