In the early 21st century, mankind has colonized the oceans. The United Earth Oceans Organization enlists Captain Nathan Bridger and the submarine seaQuest DSV to keep the peace and explore the last frontier on Earth.
By the mid-21st Century, humankind has colonized the oceans and formed the UEO--the United Earth Oceans--as a military organization to police it. Formerly a high-ranking member of the UEO, Nathan Bridger retired after the death of his wife, and retreated to an isolated island to study dolphins. An attempt is made to hijack the Seaquest DSV, the UEO's most powerful undersea vessel, and Nathan--its original designer--is convinced to return to active service, to assume command of it. His second in command is Cmdr. Jonathan Ford. In second season, the DSV added Dagwood, a prototype GELF (Genetically Engineered Life Form), Tony Piccolo, a man with surgically implanted gills, and Dr. Wendy Smith, a telepath/empath, to its crew of specialists. The series has New Age leanings, often presenting stories that deal with environmental issues or mix myth and mysticism--from ghosts to "gods"--into its science fiction. Written by

In the pilot the character Lucas Wolenczak played by Jonathan Brandis wears a Florida Marlins shirt with words World Champions 2010. This is a tribute to Roy Scheider who starred in the classic sequel to 2001 A Space Odyssey. See more »
Well, great is not just sheer physical excellence; great includes spiritual and intellectual excellence.

Brief profiles of sea-life conservation programs and efforts were shown during the closing credits of the first two seasons. 'Bob Ballard (I)' , the show's scientific advisor, narrated the first season segments; during the second year, cast members did the narration. See more »
I remember, that I was at school when the pilot was aired. But after that, I saw every episode.
Hmmm, I remember being madly in love with Stacy Haiduk and her lovely smile. I guess I love her to this day.
Of course Rosalind Allen also caught my hart , but not as much as Stacy.
The first season, or at least until destroing the first boat was the best. All others was just a little bit worse, a little bit but always.. What more can I say? Nowedays THEY do not make shows like that. Now it's time for Reba, for Christ sake who, how, for how mach made a TV series about a woman who sing country - that will be a mystery for me, until the end of days.
Bring back that time, when Seaquest ruled the deep.
