NOTES

The seedbank, the freezing cells, the Atlantis symbol: the secret is finally out.
This stranded shipt is nothing less than one of the Ark that the Atlanteans built in order to survive the global catastrophe that swept away their civilization.
It feels like Roland Emmerich's "2012", but it's actually the story of a 30-years old comic book: "Operazione Arca" (Martin Mystere n. 3).

The Ark stored seeds, DNA samples and other data that could be useful to rebuild a lively genetic pool, many years after the disaster. The Atlantean Engineers were counting on humanity to survive long enough to salvage at least one of those unmanned Arks.
Unfortunately, this never happened. Not even when Java and Martin located one of those Arks on the top of mount Ararat, making it the same Ark of the Bible!
When they came back from the mission, Java and Martin had no proof of the existence of the Ark, which was buried under tons of ice and impossible to locate.
But Java took something with him: one small seed, that he grew in a pot on his room's window. Now, doesn't this sound like the ending of "Uncle Scrooge And the Lentyls From Babylon"?

Could it be that Martin's Ark and Ameera's Ark are one and the same? In different places?

The group of fanatics mentioned by Ameera are the ancestors of Martin's enemies: the Men In Black.
The group was created right after the Atlantean disaster: they were known as "The Dark Company" and they lived for a sacred goal--preventing humanity from self-destructing again through technology.
The group kept existing even when humanity reverted to a barbarian state and they have been infiltrating every dawning civilization since then.
Unfortunately, their goals and people became corrupted with the passing of the centuries and that's how the modern, evil MiB were born.
