Horatio Hornblower begins his naval career, but a deadly feud with a despicable mate is causing complications.
The TV movie is based off the first five chapters of Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by C. S. Forester: "The Even Chance", "The Cargo of Rice", "The Penalty of Failure", "The Man Who Felt Queer" and "The Man Who Saw God".
Midshipman Horatio Hornblower:
Damn, damn, damn!
During his speech to HMS Indefatigable, Captain Pellew says, "For there is no power on earth that can withstand the might of the British Navy!" It is properly called the "Royal Navy", and was so since long before the Napoleonic Wars. A captain would not likely have made that mistake.
