Failed pilot for a show that was meant to replace Star Trek after it got canceled. In the future, humans and humanoid amphibians live in cities beneath the sea. Matthews and the crew of his sub Titan must save their city from a saboteur.

On a blue alien planet, a man stands in an arena, watched by 5 alien beings. They are testing the man's mental and physical abilities. His identity is that of a man 27 years old, born in 1951 on planet Earth.
In the 21st-century, a former underwater scientific installation has been repurposed as a city, known as Pacifica to the colonists who inhabit it. Now the U. S. government has plans to store the Ft.

But, someone has plans of stealing the gold, and to make matters worse;, the city faces imminent destruction by an asteroid heading towards it.Written by
The asteroid that hit the earth 65 million years ago was only about 6 miles across. An asteroid/planetoid 10 miles across made up of such dense matter would cause such devastation that most, if not all, life would be destroyed. See more »
Opening credits prologue: JUNE 12, 2053 THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
As a kid I had this movie on Viewmaster in 1972, on 3 reels I really liked it then. Never had it on VHS, but was glad I waited to get it on DVD. Which finally I did. I enjoyed movie when it came out, enjoyed the cast, especially Robert Wagner, Rosemary Forsythe, and Robert Colbert, I really like all the people that were used as guest stars. And I enjoyed the city and that they used the flying sub from "Voyage to the bottom of the sea", in the movie. I liked the sets, the costumes were excellent, the US Navy really should consider naval uniforms like the costume department used in the movie, the music supplied as very good, I certainly wish this had become a Television show, at the time it aired on broadcast I thought it was a Pilot for an upcoming TV show, sadly that never happened.
