Retired Captain Nathan Bridger is induced to take command of the "seaQuest," the most advanced submarine in existence in 2018, as she seeks a renegade submarine commanded by the previous captain
I've followed this book since the 1990s. I buy it every few years to reunite and because mine is tattered and torn. This is a terrific book and I highly recommend it to those who like a slice of science with their science fiction.
Awsome, my wife is a big fan, she loved it
The year is 2018 (which, in 1993, seemed so very far off) and we have begun to colonize the ocean floor. This has brought about a world of new territorial disputes and other problems, and thence comes the UEO, the United Earth/Oceans Organization, and its flagship - both militarily and scientifically - the seaQuest.
I remember the tv show with a sort of amused fondness, which pretty well describes my feelings about this book. The writing is pretty good, which is not surprising given the authors, but they were constrained by the tv show's story and it shows. Original tie-in novels are better than novelizations of existing episodes; the book was not bad, but I'd recommend spending an hour watching the actual episode rather than several hours reading this.
There was one line that made me laugh, that may or may not have been in the show: Bridger is searching seaQuest for something small (and hidden) and says to himself, "I think I need a smaller boat..."
Only 200 pages so it's a fast read, and introduces the future world of SeaQuest better than the TV show, as the narrative can get around the curse of stilted expositional dialogue. The technical aspects are much more detailed in the show, so you get some neat gimmicks explained.
The story itself is OK, Bridger and the motivation of enemy commander Marilyn Stark are explored in the most depth. The reluctance of Bridger to command drags on a bit, though.
If you enjoyed the pilot, this will add a bit more depth to the background of the show.
I enjoyed this book mostly because I'm a die-hard seaQuest fan. Normally, I really enjoy Diane Duane's work (she has written some very good Star Trek novels), but I was disapointed in the portrayal of the characters...the character's personalities in the book didn't always correspond to their personalities in the show.
This is a great book to read for people of all ages and people. It keeps yopu guessing and keep reading. I'm not much of a reader and stil finished the book in less then a week. I highly reccomend this book fo a class project, bcause you will have fun with it and still get the job done.
I Really enjoyed this book since I actully missed the 1st episode and this was a great way for me to see how the show got started.I keep this book in my room always. I read it when I don't or can't find any thing else better to read.
Very descriptive depection of the pilot for the series. There are some scenes missing in the book that were added for the series, but I really like the book's focus on Bridger, and his feelings (internal thoughts) about being tricked into 'touring' the seaQuest.
A must have for any seaQuest fan.
