The Pirate Captain once again hopes to get the Pirate of the Year Award, but gives up when he seens how much plunder his opponents have gathered. He then attacks severa ships, none of which contained any riches, until he meets Charles Darwin. The latter recognizes the Captain's parrott for what it really is: a dodo bird, a species long extinct. Darwin wants to present the bird to the royal society but the Captain insists on presenting it himself, and the pirates travel to Victorian London where the Queen hates pirates. After a failed attempt to steal the dodo by Darwin's “manpanzee” butler, the pirates disguised as scientists present the dodo to the Royal Society. They are soon after identified as pirates, but the Queen eventually exchange the the dodo for a large treasure, which allows the captain to win the Pirate of the Year Award; his royal pardon is however discovered and he is banished. The crew soon discovers the disappearance of the dodo, feeling betrayed, abandon the Captain in London, where he lives as a peddler. One day at the zoo, he meets Darwin in front of the dodo's empty cage, and learns that the Queen is part of a secret society of the world's most powerful people who eat extremely rare animals for dinner. With Darwin, the Captain boards the Queen's steamboat and after a long battle eventually sink the ship, saves the dodo and regain the trust of his crew which had arrived just in time to save them.
