In London in 1705, a younger Captain Flint meets Thomas who tells him the history of the pirate issue in Nassau. He says that he has a plan to rid Nassau of the pirates and worries that Flint might be more interested in rising in his career than in accomplishing the goal. Flint takes Thomas to a pirate hanging and tells him that the difficulty in changing the world is fighting against everyone else who want the status quo.
