Watch seaQuest DSV
- 3 Seasons
seaQuest DSV is a science fiction, action-adventure series about a futuristic sub that travels Earth's oceans to protect the explosion of underwater colonies. The show premiered on NBC in September of 1993. The year is 2018 and Earth is recovering from a recent altercation between numerous nations. In order to maintain peace above and under the water, the newly formed United Earth Oceans Organization (UEO) enlists Captain Nathan Bridger to take over command the ship he designed, the Deep Submergence Vehicle (DSV) known as seaQuest. He is joined by first officer Commander Jonathan Ford (Don Franklin), Chief Medical Officer Kristin Westphalen (Stephanie Beacham), and teenage computer genius Lucas Wolenczak (Jonathan Brandis). Bridger also recruits his dolphin friend Darwin, who is able to communicate with the crew through technology. There were many changes throughout the three season history of seaQuest DSV. The first season mixed futuristic political and military encounters with stories involving ecology and exploration of the oceans. After the original seaQuest was destroyed in the 1st season finale, a smaller version of the ship returned to duty in the second season. Along with this came a number of cast changes, including the addition of Rosalind Allen as the telepathic Dr. Wendy Smith and Peter DeLuise as the genetically-engineered human known as Dagwood. The second season's episodes were based more in the science fiction and fantasy realms. In the third season, the ship and crew are transported to a future where a new Macronesian Alliance threatens the world. Due to this change, Captain Bridger leaves the show and is replaced by Captain Oliver Hudson (Michael Ironside). Despite steering the program back to the first season's themes, seaQuest was canceled by the network in 1996.
