The year is 2018 (which, in 1993, seemed so 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. 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 original script: Bridger is searching seaQuest for something small (and hidden) and thinks to himself "I think I need a smaller boat..." ( )

This doesn't go much beyond the series, but I will say it's better written that much of the writing I've seen come from television series. If you like seaQuest, this will be a fun read that brings you back to the series, though it is a bit awkward at times. ( )
