The UEO seaQuest DSV 4600 and the UEO seaQuest DSV 4600-II are the two titular submarines featured in the science fiction television series "seaQuest DSV", which ran for three seasons on NBC from 1993-1996. The original seaQuest was featured in the show's first season, while the second boat was featured in the second and third seasons. Design specifications The seaQuest was the brain child of Captain Nathan Bridger, who designed the boat in the early 21st century, but Bridger left the Navy three years before construction on the ship was completed. Upon its completion, seaQuest was the largest submarine and deep submergence vehicle ever constructed, measuring 307.1 m from stem to stern with a crew of 88 military and 124 science personnel. The ship could travel at speeds up to 160 knots (295 km/h) and was propelled by twin fusion reactors. The seaQuest was coated in a genetically engineered bio-skin that remained completely inert against (most) marine bacteria and organisms with a crush depth of more than 9 km of water. The ship is equipped with a complement of standard torpedoes, as well as nuclear tipped SLBMs (believed to be named the Triton II), intercepts, sea to air missiles, and state-of-the art laser banks, as well as a specialized "grapnel torpedo", which, when fired, would impact a target and allow the seaQuest to tow or retract. The ship was also equipped with a series of WSKRS (pronounced "whiskers"; Wireless Sea Knowledge Retrieval Satellites): small sensor probes that were remotely controlled by the ship's sensor chief. The WSKRS, codenamed "Mother", "Junior", and "Loner", served as the "eyes and ears of seaQuest" and could relay telemetry data back to the ship miles (kilometers) away. In a pinch, the WSKRS could also be used as an emergency power supply and could be reconfigured for communication purposes. A special "Hyper-Reality Probe" was also part of the seaQuest's arsenal which allowed the operator to manually control the probe and conduct delicate repair operations or investigate various anomalies. The ship's communications buoy could also be detached to enable contact with surface bound vessels.
The ship was also equipped with a series of sea launch shuttles, as well as a series of speeder shuttles, a series of sea crab-class vehicles and, eventually, a specialized, high-speed, one-man submersible named The Stinger by one of the designers, Lucas Wolenczak. In 2032, the boat was equipped with two high-speed spector-class sub-fighters: high speed submersibles capable of engagements up to speeds approaching 300 knots (554 km/h), comparable to (but not equal to) the Lysander-class sub-fighter engineered by Deon International. seaQuest featured an emergency override called the "Dead Man's Codes"; in the event that the ship's crew was incapacitated or dead, the codes could be used to bring the ship to any location on the globe by remote. The helm control has the final authority over the boat's course (Episode: "And Everything Nice"). The UEO Secretary General kept one set of the codes while another set was flash-fed into the computer banks and scrambled at random intervals. Originally designed as a purely military vessel, the seaQuest underwent a refit in 2017 following the Livingston Trench Incident and the signing of the United Earth Oceans Organization charter.

The seaQuest almost instigated hostilities when Stark planned to fire first in violation of NORPAC orders. Zellar held the crew hostage with a toxin frozen in ice and gained access to the missile control room where he coerced Bridger and Ford to activate the ship's missiles and fire them towards UEO Headquarters in Pearl Harbor. ("Nothing But the Truth") The seaQuest was also involved with several space-related incidents. the seaQuest shoved off. save the away team and return to the ship to drydock for repairs. He ultimately died in the attempt. seaQuest was hijacked by a group of ecologic extremists led by Colonel Steven Shrader. an away team stranded in a hurricane on the surface of the water. however. Commander Ford instantly relieved her of command and the situation was defused. The bridge crew elected to send a message to the alien home world themselves and not tell the military about what had truly happened. who planned to the use the ship's computer to obtain "shut-down codes" for various global pollutants. behaved in a very cowardly manner in an attempt to lull Bridger to take command. Shrader's plans were foiled when Commander Ford flooded the boat. Under the command of Captain Marilyn Stark. However. while Lucas and Krieg were able to activate Captain Bridger's prototype "hull siphons" which pumped the flooding water out of the boat and refloated the ship. the increased water pressure would crush his ship. effectively trapping Bridger aboard. The crew discovered that there were still active holographic projections aboard the ship that boarded the seaQuest and expressed their desire to have formal introductions with the human race. such as the recovery of the Wayfarer. With free rein on the seaQuest. ("Bad Water") Several months later. Ford. introduced in 2018. ("To Be or Not to Be") The seaQuest unwittingly brought aboard biochemist and war criminal Dr. Shrader failed to realize that because the seaQuest was sinking. after an extensive scientific refit. and a downed French sight-seeing submarine to search for. ("Games") The ship suffered significant damage when the communications buoy was struck by lightning several weeks later. With all power knocked offline. once aboard. the seaQuest converged on the Livingston Trench where a showdown between various undersea confederations could have erupted in nuclear war. Rubin Zellar several weeks later after Zellar had assumed the identity of his ice prison's warden. under the orders of Admiral William Noyce. Bridger suggested that one of the WSKRS could be used to power the bridge stations enough to locate the French ship. ("Such Great Patience") . the first manned space vessel to reach Mars as well as uncovering an ancient derelict alien starship which had been entombed in an underwater ridge for over a million years. causing Shrader and his men to panic and attempt to escape. The ploy worked and Bridger signed aboard as captain. Thirteen months later. However. Bridger had wisely disabled all the missiles once the crew learned of Zellar's true identity and disaster was averted. the new UEO lured retired Captain Nathan Bridger aboard the ship as part of a VIP tour.History seaQuest DSV 4600 The seaQuest mission patch.
F. Captain Oliver Hudson eventually found the seaQuest in a cornfield with no idea of how it ended it up there or how long it had been there. The only survivors of the crew were Lucas and Dagwood. ("Brave New World") seaQuest was nearly the catalyst for a nuclear holocaust again when environmental radical. one that consumed Captain Bridger and Chief Ortiz. ("Playtime") The seaQuest became the first ship to uncover evidence of the lost continent of Atlantis when Commander Ford discovered a warrior's helmet and sword at the bottom of the ocean. who appeared destined to spend the rest of their lives on the alien world.L.E. the ship had been forcibly drawn from the water by a powerful alien tractor beam and swept over a million light years away to the far distant planet named Hyperion. ("Splashdown") After ten years of searching. 2022 with no debris. they quickly provided the funds to commission a new boat. Nevertheless. (Genetically Engineered Life Forms) terrorists from destroying the world's oxygen production facilities. the massive explosion of the seaQuest was enough to seal the rupture and avert ecologic catastrophe. had Captain Hudson and Lucas not been able to commandeer a supply hauler and drive it into the nuclear waste. The crew members also reappeared on Earth with no memory of what had happened to them or their ship. effectively cooling down the uranium deposit. ("Lostland") However. as it was lost with all hands on May 14." The explosion would have wiped out the entire human race. In actuality. allowing the only two humans left on Earth to rely on each other to survive and repopulate the species. Smith's telepathic abilities. Captain Bridger believed that they still had the power to change it. in the ten years following their disappearance. Bridger was able to convince the G. where the ship was (apparently) destroyed by a devastating impact from a barrier mine. ("Resurrection") . no trace. In control of the boat.E. leader that destroying the human race would also result in their annihilation as well. the seaQuest met her ultimate demise at the end of its tour of duty when Captain Bridger ordered all hands to abandon ship and locked the ship's autopilot into a direct course with a lava well that threatened to raise ocean temperatures and melt the polar ice caps. Fortunately. ("Daggers") Months later. save for the select few living in his underwater colony called Ecotopia. where the crew discovered that mankind had annihilated itself due to its dependence on computers for entertainment. Scully fired the ship's laser banks at an underwater nuclear waste stockpile called "Freedom Point. Captain Bridger decided to retire from the navy. they were saved by a descendant of the lost continent through the employ of Dr. While Lucas believed that what they've seen will be the way the future will play out. However. which entered service in 2021 with some new bridge crew members. another tragedy befell the seaQuest DSV. ("Higher Power") seaQuest DSV 4600-II With the UEO so impressed with the original seaQuest's performance. leaving Captain Hudson in command of the seaQuest. the seaQuest was thrust 250 years into the future. Lucas was able to deactivate the remaining computer system. the helmet contained a curse of the previous owner. the world had become a much more unstable place following the rise to power of President Alexander Bourne and his nation of Macronesia (formerly New Australia).L. and newly appointed UEO ambassador Max Scully. The new ship's first task was to stop the G. seized control of the ship's computer. With the world on the apparent brink of war. deactivated the life-support systems incapacitating the crew. Detonating the ship's nuclear weapons.F.Unfortunately.
Due to seaQuest's encroachment in the time line. they inadvertently were the trigger of a nuclear war that wiped out mankind. this time back seventy years to 1962. ("Second Chance"). Using the discontinuity in their reactor core. in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis. 2032 due to a freak imbalance in one of the ship's reactor cores. . they traveled back two days further in time and were able to avert the holocaust.The ship would soon travel in time again on October 28.
