Okay folks. Time to vote for your favourite movie/sci-fi sub.

I've a hunch who the winner will be, but hey there maybe an upset! :D

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

I didn't vote! First, I hit the button to view the results (it said "null vote") and now when I try to get back in to vote, it tells me I've already voted!!!

Don't repeat my mistake! Vote first; THEN check out the results.

Well as you can see, folks, it's a real close thing so far! :D

Disney Nautilus a clear favourite.
Seaquest DSV bringing up the rear and Goff's Proteus limping along in third place.

Surprised noone has placed a vote for the FS1 yet! ???

Please! Seaview would blow that tub out of the water :^)
It is disappointing not to be able to run up the votes for your favorite candidate like "real" web polls.
Warm regards,

In this secondary discussion of which sub is "baddest" in terms of combat capabilities, SEAVIEW would be going down!

As I recall from the instruction sheet that came with my model, SEAQUEST is extremely fast. Plus it's armed with way more nasty stuff than SEAVIEW ever carried.

So, if the two ever clashed, SEAVIEW would be taking a "Voyage To the Bottom of the Sea", and STAYING THERE!!!

:D

LOL!

Pat, I do confess I know very little about SeaQuest's offensive capabilities. It wasn't on the air long enough for me to find out!

But come on, Seaview has NUCLEAR MISSLES! It can blow up a radiation field from OUTER SPACE! It weebles and wobbles but doesn't fall down!

And it is sexy sleek, like an underwater lowrider. They have laws in my town that require you to scoop up after pooches that leave SeaQuests lying around.
Warm regards,

seaQuest specs:

length: 1007 ft
beam: 100 ft
displacement: 31,700 tons (submerged)
speed: 160 knots (full) and 175 knots (flank)
reactor: fusion reactor running off seawater (tritium)
hull: bio-skin with titanium supports
crew: 212 (standard)
commissioned: 2013

source: http://seaquesttv.tripod.com/specs.htm

seaQuest could dive to 27,000 feet, although only by following their Deep Submergence Protocol which took about 6 minutes. It had at least 8 SLBMs, but it might have had about 16. It could fire intercepts/countermeasures that appeared to never miss an incoming torpedo. had 9 (although i've read it had 22) torpedo tubes. it could do 60-65 knots undetected by "1960's era US and USSR" ASW technology.

to go deep (at least 20,000 ft), the seaQuest initiates a "Deep Dive Protocol," not a Deep Submergence Protocol. :D

Quien es mas macho? Si, SeaQuest es mas macho!

Personally, I've never understood the rationale behind handing out ballistic missiles to "research" submarines. The temptation for nuclear eco-terror would be too great. "Stop drilling off the California coast or we level Anaheim!"

actually seaQuest was a military submarine built by the United States when they were a part of North Pacific Confederation. When the UEO was formed, it was turned over by the North Pacific Confederation to the UEO to enforce the new ocean rules. as a compromise, seaQuest was refit was a large science crew

I really like Stingray, but my vote still went to the Nautilus. Stingray has a kind of sleek aquatic creature looking body which is definitely a favourite of mine! Talking about whose favourite boat is which really makes us sound like kids! :D
280 meters.... and she's still in one piece!
