Trivia

  • NBC would frequently air episodes out of order, which created many continuity problems: Roy Schneider grew a beard in the middle of Season 1, and it would appear and disappear between episodes. There was even a character who was killed in season 3, but would appear alive in a later episode with zero explanation.
  • Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg
  • When NBC ordered the series it payed $1 million per episode, much higher than other TV series of the time. Production delays due to computer generated special effects ballooned the budgets to $2 million per episode.
  • In the first season, Seaquest DSV would have segments teaching viewers about Earth’s oceans. The segments were hosted by Bob Ballard, who is considered the world’s foremost oceanographer. He also served as technical consultant on the series. The teaching segment was scrapped in Season 2 as the series focused more on Sci-fi/alien/supernatural story lines.
  • Production of the series moved from Los Angeles to Florida between seasons 1 and 2. This led to several cast departures, including Stacy Haiduk, John D’Aquino, and Stephanie Beacham.
