Voyage chronicled the adventures of the world's first privately owned nuclear submarine, the SSRN Seaview. Designed by Admiral Harriman Nelson, she was a tool of oceanographic research for the Nelson Institute of Marine Research. Though the show is known for its "monster" episodes, many plots were veiled commentaries of what was happening in the news. Such plotlines as nuclear doomsday, pollution of natural resources, foreign threat, and theft of American technology are all still relevant today. Written by

At first David Hedison turned down the role of Lee Crane until he learned that Richard Basehart was signed to play Nelson. See more »
Seaview's job is never finished. As long as there are destructive forces in the world. As long as there are secrets of nature to be probed, believe me, there'll be work for us. On missions just as vital and as dangerous as this one.

During my days as a child,the most entertaining show that Irwin Allen ever produced was "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". It was a Sunday night staple during it run on ABC from 1964-1968. Each week,the nuclear submarine "the seaview" runs into huge sea creatures and prehistoric monsters, menacing aliens from other worlds,villains who would take over the ship and tried to destroy it,and have it out with whatever was out there in the mysterious vasts of the deep. Richard Basehart was brilliant as Admiral Nelson and David Hedison was very good as Captain Crane. However,it did have some incredible special effects during its day,making it one of the top ten shows during its initial run. Catch some of the episodes(if they're available on some local cable channel) if you can.
