Join Scott & Tom as they break down this week’s pilot: seaQuest DSV
seaQuest DSV is an American science fiction television series created by Rockne S. O’Bannon. It originally aired on NBC between 1993 and 1996. In its final season, it was renamed seaQuest 2032. Set in “the near future”, seaQuest mixes high drama with realistic scientific fiction. It stars Roy Scheider as Nathan Bridger, captain of the high-tech submarine seaQuest DSV 4600, Jonathan Brandis as Lucas Wolenczak, a teenaged computer genius, Stephanie Beacham as Kristin Westphalen, the chief medical officer and head of the seaQuest science department, and Michael Ironside, later captain of the vessel. Steven Spielberg expressed interest in the project and served as one of the show’s executive producers during the first two seasons.
