Lesson 52 Catastrophe at Sea 海上遇难

I was a code breaker for the Navy corps. Our battleship was assigned to convoy an aircraft carrier to the Caribbean Sea. Our ship’s captain was in charge of coordination the voyage. We had a special cosmopolitan crew that was trained to cooperate with an international military force. Our mission of cooperation was to help restore order to a region whose government had suffered from years of corruption.

我是一名海军军团的密码破解员。我们的战舰奉命为一艘航空母舰护航到加勒比海。舰长负责协调这次海上行动。我们拥有一支来自世界各地的海勤队伍,他们受过特殊训练能与国际军事组织配合行动。我们合作的使命在于帮助那些其政府已被多年腐败所困扰的地区恢复正常。

On the thirteenth night if the voyage, there was a convivial party below the deck. Without warning, our ship hit something big. We rushed on deck to find that had broken off, exposing a huge steel hull below. Years of exposure to the corrosive effects of salt water had corroded parts of the hull. Through the corrosion, we could see that it was a battleship. We sent divers into the hull to investigate. At the core of the hull, they found a strange copper coffin.

航行的第13天晚上,人们在甲板下面举办欢乐的舞会。突然,战舰撞到了一个庞然大物,在这之前没有任何警报。我们迅速冲上甲板,发现我们撞在海中央的一个珊瑚礁。珊瑚礁的外壳已经裂开,下面露出一个巨大的钢船体。由于海水多年的腐蚀作用,部分船体已被腐蚀。透过腐蚀层,我们能看到这是一条战舰。我们派潜水员入船体中去勘察。在船体的中心,他们发现一口奇怪的铜棺材。

We brought it on board and opened it below the deck. We found a corpulent corpse and a letter of correspondence. The correspondence was written in what appeared to be cosmic code. I was able to correlate the code to letters in the English language. The result was shocking.

我们把它打捞上船,在甲板下面把它打开。发现里面有一具臃肿的尸体和一封联系信件。通信内容似乎是用宇宙密码写成的。我能把这些密码与英语字母联系起来。破译的结果实在令人震惊。

It was a warning letter from the last survivor of the sunken ship. “Stay out of the Bermuda area,” it said. Just then, I felt a huge wave roll over our ship. Our ship began to sink. I tumbled to the floor and lost consciousness. Then I heard a loud voice.

这是一艘沉船的最后的幸存者留下的警告信。上面写着:“离开百慕大地区。”正在那时,我感到一个巨浪向我们的船打来。船开始下沉,我跌跌撞撞地冲上甲板,然后就失去了知觉。接着我听到有人大声喊道:

“Hey, wake up!” my roommate yelled.

“嘿,醒一醒!你又在做梦吧!”原来是我室友正在对我大声叫呢。
