The main conflict occurs between the boat's executive officer, Ron Hunter (DenzelWashington), and TheCaptain, Frank Ramsey (Creator/GeneHackman). Their personalities openly clash, Hunter being the modern CulturedWarrior and Ramsey having similarities to the old-fashioned SergeantRock. When their orders are LostInTransmission, Hunter argues that they should not launch their nuclear weapons until they can confirm the orders. Ramsey fears that would be too risky.
