Guest Stars:
Bruce Campbell (Autolycus)
Stephen Tozer (Thaddeus)

Autolycus is the catalyst for this episode. Gabrielle tries to rescue him from a prison ship, unaware that Auto is a willing passenger hoping to get to the diamond mines where convicts are taken to work. When Xena and Gabrielle are stuck on the ship, catastrophe! A tidal wave - or tsunami - hits the boat, sending it to the bottom of the ocean. Trapped on the sinking ship, Xena must save them all, convicts and crew. Shades of The Poseidon Adventure - or maybe catching the Titanic wave?

Several days in a water tank with heated water resulted in lots of rotting cabbages, which Lucy Lawless and Bruce Campbell apparently kept pushing towards Renee O`Connor while she was filming during this episode. An accident near the end of filming where the tanks burst meant that shooting was delayed, and Lucy Lawless` planned appearance at the 1998 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras had to be cancelled.

Soreya was played by Angela Dotchin, who now stars with Bruce Campbell in Jack of All Trades.

Disclaimer : -
No cast or crew were singing "Tanks for the Memories" during the production of this motion picture. However, the phrase, "Strike the set" was given new meaning.
