Season One

To Be Or Not To Be

Nathan Bridger has been living the life of a virtual recluse since the death of his wife some years before. Now he devotes himself to his aquatic research and his friend the dolphin. Until one day, an ex-colleague from the Navy persuades him to see over their newest submarine, one that he himself helped design, and, step by step, he is 'persuaded' to take the post of ship's captain. His first task is to capture or destroy a rogue submarine captained by an old pupil of his, a semi-psychopathic killer who has been hired to destabilise the underwater world in preparation for a business-like takeover. Bridger completes the task with ease, demonstrating the SeaQuest's new powers to the full.
