A highly advanced Chinese submarine, the Hei Ten Shi, is on a mysterious mission to deliver an otherworldly cargo to the Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the Earth's ocean.  The Chinese vessel suffers damage while maneuvering through the tight oceanic canyons.  Because the vessel is now sinking rapidly, it enters a race against time to reach its destination, deliver its cargo and rise to the surface.  But before it can release the cargo that is weighing it down, the Chinese vessel is intercepted by an American submarine, the USS Dakota, on a routine patrol to Pearl Harbor.  The Chinese submarine dives to over 21,000 feet to avoid engagement.  But before the Chinese can escape, the cargo "activates" sending out strange pulses of radiation that cause both the American and Chinese submarines to have massive system failures.  As the Hei Ten Shi separates the main components of its ship, the Dakota fears an attack and launches its torpedoes destroying a large part of the Hei Ten Shi. One year later, a CIA operative named Whitt Roberts is called to meet with Jason Sterling.  Sterling is part of the Blackdoor Group, a highly clandestine arm of the CIA that acts in complete autonomy from the rest of the US Government and its laws.  Whitt has been called upon to investigate the disappearance of the Dakota, but Jason Sterling seems to know more than he is letting on.  Whitt explains that a powerful signal was sent out from the Marianas Trench.  But what is even more unusual is that the signal appears to have been answered from a source in outer space.  Jason tells Whitt that he wants him to abandon his search for the Dakota and focus on a new target...in New York City.

The three of them arrive at Sutton Manor, an enormous complex of almost 20 townhouses on the outside, but a single compound on the inside.  A woman named Ikoro analyzes Macallan and her blood before she meets the leader of the compound named Seinshun.  He explains that she is very special and that he has known of her for her entire life.  He explains that he is her great-great-great grandfather and is over 400 years old.  Macallan is highly skeptical but agrees to listen to what Seinshun has to say.  He explains that the immortals are dying from an unknown illness.  Macallan needs to find the Key that can save them.  Seinshun informs Macallan that she must travel to Anchorage, Alaska to engage in a treasure hunting operation to search a shipwreck called the Cedar Elm.  He gives her $5,000,000 to assist her in her journey.

After finding her boyfriend dead and being accused of murder, Macallan realizes she must escape New York City immediately. Not knowing who the real murderer might be, she decides she can only rely upon herself.  Disobeying Seinshun's instructions, Macallan chooses not to head to Anchorage, but rather the small Alaskan fishing town of Homer.  There, she meets Captain Jeffery Tulley and his First Mate Oberlin St. Clair, a pair of treasure hunters that are down on their luck.  They both possess knowledge of the shipwreck, Cedar Elm, that Seinshun said might contain the Key that Macallan has been sent to find.  Tulley and Oberlin are reluctant to return to the Cedar Elm because its remote location and because it has been slated for demolition by the US Navy.  Suddenly, an assassination team pulls up and launches on assault on Tulley's boat.  It is unclear if the target is Macallan or Tulley, as he has incurred significant debt with the Japanese Yakuza.  Tulley, Macallan and Oberlin escape on their boat, Hail Mary, and head out to sea in the face of a monster storm. Shortly thereafter, Jason Sterling contacts Kasunori Tanaka to berate him over the botched attack on the Hail Mary.  He reminds Tanaka that he owes much of his corporate success and wealth to the clandestine operations conducted by the Blackdoor Group.  As a result of his failure, Sterling kidnaps Tanaka's only son, Toshi.  His return will be dependant upon Tanaka completing another murderous mission for Blackdoor and currying favor with Jason Sterling. After battling the storm for twenty-four hours, the Hail Mary stumbles upon the Cedar Elm.  Strangely, the shipwreck is located 500 hundred miles from its last reported location.  Additionally, the Hail Mary's search and recovery equipment was badly damaged in the attack.  However, after much deliberation, Tulley and Oberlin agree to help Macallan and launch a recovery mission on the Cedar Elm.

Oberlin and Tulley jerry-rig a shaky connection of their diving equipment in attempting a recovery mission on the Cedar Elm, which lies deep in the Gulf of Alaska.  Oberlin warns them that their oxygen is limited and backup power is nonfunctional.  With hugs and thanks, Macallan and Tulley begin their descent to 10,000 feet under the ocean Back in New York, Seinshun meets with Anton and Othello, who represent the Special Forces Unit of Leviathan.  Tension is high as Macallan has eluded them by deciding to drive to Alaska instead of fly.  Additionally, she has engaged the Hail Mary, not the treasure hunting operation Seinshun had ordered.  As such, her whereabouts are unknown to Seinshun and his team of immortals.  Seinshun hints that Macallan may have been bred for a specific purpose in mind.  But what?  In the meantime, Tulley and Macallan pass the time during their lengthy descent to reveal more about each other.  Macallan explains the bizarre circumstances that drove her to find his boat and what she knows about the Leviathan Group.  Tulley recalls how he met Oberlin and his secret dream of building the most advanced treasure hunting boat the world has ever seen.  Their conversation is interrupted by their arrival at the Cedar Elm. The shipwreck is enormous.  They search the boat exhaustedly for Macallan's mysterious Key.  Not knowing exactly what she is looking for, Macallan is attracted by a strange glow emanating from one of the front cargo holds.  They send the ROV to investigate and are amazed by what they see.  A strange sarcophagus is pulsing in green light.  But to make things more bizarre, the face of the sarcophagus is almost identical to Macallan's.  She thinks this must be the Key!  Macallan and Tulley use the ROV to grab the sarcophagus and pull away from the Cedar Elm.  But before they can get too far, time runs out!

Too many historical inaccuracies. Also, WAY too heavy on the female goddess/savior/strong leader/utopianism crap. Don't bother.

I was kind of on board for S1, but the voice acting just got too racist. I would prefer to hear Asian American voice actors play those parts.
