During the eighteenth century, a peaceful colony of settlers suddenly had their serenity interrupted.  The invaders were the Lego System Pirates of the Sea!  The Pirates had been searching for the same buried treasures that the settlers were claiming as their own.  This disturbed the Pirates as they knew the treasure had belonged to their ancestors. Many years ago, a wealthy king summoned the best shipbuilders and the finest soldiers to design, build and sail the Imperial Flagship. Their mission was to retrieve millions of dollars worth of hidden treasure. Unfortunately, the Soldiers were not prepared for what was ahead. Spotting the royal ship leaving a deserted island, the Pirates knew instantly what the Soldiers were carrying aboard. Will the Soldiers be able to protect the king's royal treasure from the Pirates? Use your imagination to continue the adventures of the Lego System Pirates of the Sea!
