Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea-The Mist of Silence
25 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lethion Gas is the weapon of choice used by a Latin American country's corrupt leadership to capture members of the Seaview crew who were operating a "prize ship" which was supposed to contain a revolutionary leader prepared to bring freedom to his people held under a tyrannical military regime. Taut script seems to present a country similar to Cuba, but most of the plot is on the ground not under the water which is why I wasn't as wild and crazy about this particular episode because the story is primarily concerned with political intrigue, as Admiral Nelson joins forces with a revolutionary, Ricardo ( a passionate performance from Alejandro Rey), who believes the supposed hero of his country is nothing more than a traitor, not the godsend to his people the kidnapped "el presidente"(Edward Colmans) is made out to be. Leader of a resistance set to help bring freedom to his country, Ricardo will get assistance from girlfriend, Detta (Rita Gam) who does believe her el presidente, Fuentes, is legitimate in his ideals. Captain Crane (David Hedison), Kowalski (Del Monroe), and Patterson (Paul Trinka) are held prisoner (after being captured on the prize boat which was supposed to carry Fuentes), forced to listen as one of their crew members is shot by a firing squad. Mike Kellin (Just Before Dawn; Sleepaway Camp) is perfectly loathsome as Steban, leader of the military in his country's capital, using a drugged Fuentes to keep the people at bay—obviously against any sort of freedom for a basically enslaved people, Steban wants to stave off a revolution, using Fuentes against his will. Captain Crane, as ordered by Steban (smiling like a Cheshire cat), is to publicly admit a phony fault against the Latin American country or watch as his men, one by one, are shot in front of the firing squad. It will take Nelson, Ricardo, and Detta to conduct a rescue operation before these executions kill any more of the Seaview crew. Action packed finale has our heroes in a battle with Steban's military goons, as the "great escape" delivers plenty of shootouts and fisticuffs, including an affective use of the Lethion gas that instantly renders anyone who breathes it unconscious. While "The Mist of Silence" is centered primarily topside, there is a suspenseful attack on the Seaview when Steban is able to trick the crew into believing that Nelson wanted them to be at a rendezvous point, the Bay of Red Cliffs, at a certain time, sending a plane to their location, dropping depth charges.
