Mutiny

On this episode of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, another submarine almost identical to the Seaview, the Neptune, is attacked and engulfed by what looks like a giant jellyfish (in actuality, *they* are "coelenterate" are millions of creatures combined to form one central organism), its size and the ability for such creatures to unify caused by a "stimulation" due to a radioactive "forcefield" near the bottom of the ocean floor. Nelson was on the Neptune, studying its capabilities and for possible hiccups or malfunctions, when he dives to cut away radioactive rock for research, watching with another crew member as the sub is destroyed, swimming to the surface, using their frogmen suits and air tanks as means to make a raft. The first portion of the episode has Captain Crane in Naval headquarters awaiting word of Nelson's recovery with tough, hard-nosed, opinionated Admiral Jiggs Starke (Harold J Stone, intense, by-the-book military commander who wishes for Crane to operate his crew on the Seaview closer to naval guidelines, rules, and regulations). Jiggs will board a Navy-commissioned Seaview to locate the coelenterate and find out why the Neptune was destroyed, picking up Nelson, recuperating in the hospital, during the voyage. Nelson's emotions and mental prowess are under attack possibly by a "piece" of the coelenterate as he was swimming to the surface prior to being rescued so the Seaview in a precarious position when Crane checks the computer to determine the best course when the forcefield affects certain controls on the ship, including guidance systems, having to counteract the admiral's orders for full ballast which would jeopardize all on board. The scene where Crane is confined to his quarters after debating the best methods for setting the course, having to pull a gun on Nelson so that the Seaview wouldn't be victim to maneuvering problems is quite a dramatic height for the series. Crane's relations with Jiggs also produces plenty of tension (you can see Crane hold back from really letting Jiggs have an earful over all of the admiral's complaints about the way the captain runs his ship; Jiggs cannot hold back his repulsion for how "insubordinate" Crane is, later having to eat his words when the captain gets them out of a sticky situation). My favorite line was Nelson's when responding to Jiggs' complaints about Crane, saying that the only reason he doesn't like him is because the admiral doesn't scare the pants off the captain! Seeing Nelson in tears after Crane pulls the gun is certainly not a scene you forget...all because of pills designed to help were actually the cause of his mental breakdown!
