Aboard the Karaboudjan Tintin is introduced to Captain Haddock for the first time, and they are soon both facing a deathly thirst in the Sahara desert.

Soon he is setting sail with Captain Haddock to find the meteorite in the stormy Arctic Ocean, but a valuable metal is contained in the meteorite and Tintin's attempts to reach it are met with relentless sabotage! The Secret of the Unicorn When Tintin stumbles across a model ship at the Old Street Market, he buys it as a gift for his friend Captain Haddock.
