retribution 1: unsinkable carmen sandiego
Written by: Steve Granat & Cydne Clark

Part 1 of 3. A flashback episode! Super-baddie Maelstrom attempts to break out of prison. It looks like he died while escaping. Zack and Ivy ask the Chief for a little more info on Maelstrom so most of the episode is what happened in 1985. The Chief's first case for Acme involved the brilliant marine archeologist Dr. Maelstrom. Detective Carmen Sandiego is determined to stop Maelstrom from pulling off the "greatest seagoing theft of all time". Maelstrom tries to steal the sunken Titanic. Acme creates the Chief, a robot, to help her catch him. After the story Zack and Ivy realize Maelstrom is still alive. They track him to Belize and are captured. To be continued... argh!

Detective Sandiego kicks butt in this episode. A pre-Chief and C-5 Acme was interesting. Wow, Carmen was that good a detective without Acme's technology. She has quite a temper...

I am still working on this...

ret1_49.jpg The episode begins with the apparent death of Dr. Maelstrom. He was a brilliant marine archeologist who committed underwater thefts. Acme agent Carmen Sandiego captured him on August 31 1985. Maelstrom predicted Carmen Sandiego's decent to the dark side. He also appears in "Retribution Part 2" and "Retribution Part 3"

Detective Carmen Sandiego
ret1_41.jpg One of Acme's best and brightest. She's the detective assigned to stop Maelstrom. Carmen Sandiego gets a partner, the Chief, and captures her nemesis, Maelstrom, in this episode.

The Chief
ret1_42.jpg ret1_43.jpg Way before the Chief becomes head of Acme... he was just another detective. The boys at headquarters decide to give Carmen a little help, a partner named Chief. His name is an acronym for: "Computerized Holographic Imaging Educational Facilitator". The Chief in his robot body is also seen in "Retribution Part 3"

Maelstrom's number code

Maelstrom is a fantastic pool player. Carmen almost caught him at a French Billiards tournament.

Acme Jet

The Titanic
