s0e0: Original 1961 Movie
The Seaview is an atomic submarine designed by Admiral Harriman Nelson. On its initial launch some politicians are visiting it to see if all the money they poured into it is worth it. It is while they are at sea that they learn that the belt of radiation covering the Earth is on fire. Nelson is asked to attend some kind of international conference to determine what to do. It is while on route that Nelson comes up with a plan which he presents at the conference. Nelson proposes that if an atomic missile is launched from the Seaview at a precise moment, it will cause it to blow up. Another scientist claims that the belt will burn itself out when it reaches a certain temperature. But Nelson says that if they wait for his proposal, they will miss the window of opportunity that he told them of. Nelson leaves, boards the Seaview, and heads off to make his rendezvous with radiation belt. However, Nelson's driven manner, causes friction between him and Captain Crane, whose relationship with him is more paternal. As they push on, some of the crew members don't want to follow the admiral, and if that wasn't enough, there appears to be saboteur on board.

s4e8: Time Lock
A man from the future sends two androids back in time to kidnap Nelson from Seaview in order to add him to a collection of other famous military figures abducted from various eras of the past. The plot of this episode is virtually identical to the plot of the "Time Tunnel" episode entitled "The Kidnappers".
Sunday, November 19th, 1967
Seaview is on the lookout for an enemy sub and its underwater sub-pen. Sonar picks up a contact. The rogue sub fires at Seaview, which is saved only by virtue of her new electronic hull shield. Not so fortunate is Captain Crane, who has just located the sub-pen while on patrol in the FS-1. A powerful laser fires a beam at the Flying Sub, crippling the ship. Running out of air, moving in and out of consciousness, Crane is unable to give the pen's coordinates to Nelson. Thanks to the hard work of some enemy agents aboard, Seaview seems unable to rescue the Captain. Worried about Crane trapped in the Flying Sub, Admiral Nelson is particularly impatient in this episode. He constantly barks at Morton and the Chief. One of the enemy agents, Marco, a crewman we have seen in many other episodes, is never found out, and apparently keeps his job on Seaview!
Sunday, November 26th, 1967
A scientist experimenting with plant life on a remote island has run into trouble. A shore party from Seaview arrives only in time to hear his dying warning that the world will be taken over in eight hours. Nelson brings aboard the only unusual thing he can find -- a red orchid, which proves to be a malign alien (that proceeds to take over his mind and those of the crew).

s4e11: A Time to Die
finds herself suddenly out of touch with the rest of the world, in the wrong part of the ocean and encountering strange creatures. It seems she's been thrown a million years back in time. Then the Admiral opens his cabin door and finds himself back in his Santa Barbara office, confronting the strange Mr. Pem and his pocket-sized time machine, and has to play a risky game before time can return to its normal course. The early part of this episode contains two astronomical errors. First, Nelson takes snapshots of the eclipse-darkened sky with an ordinary camera, but when the shots are developed they show galaxies and nebulae that could only be seen with a telescope. Second, the Admiral describes the pictures as showing 'constellations'. Henry Jones (Pem) also appears as Sprague in "Night of Terror" and once again as Pem in "No Way Back". This episode features re-used footage from "Thing from Inner Space". A bust which adorns the Admiral's office looks remarkably like one seen in the Nazi commander's quarters in "The Last Battle".

s4e12: Blow Up
The Seaview is en route to rendezvous with the fleet when Sharkey reports a missle fuel leak. Crane and Morton believe it's worth returing to port to repair, however Nelson knows how to handle it. Taking a small breathing device with him, the Admiral locks himself in the compartment in question to effect repairs. However, he drops a wrench, the circuts blow and Nelson is knocked out. When he comes to, he's gripped by paranoia which worsens with each passing minute. Trusting no one, Nelson loses his grip on reality, arresting Doc, fighting with Sharkey and finally launching a nuclear missle at the fleet!

s4e15: Terrible Leprechaun
About the plot . . . Um . . . Well . . . Uh . . . Okay, here it is: You see, there are these twin leprechauns, one good, the other icky. The icky one wants all the gold that's buried beneath an underwater defense installation in the Irish Sea. The good leprechaun does his best to stop his evil brother from doing any harm . * Footage of Morton and Kowalski trapped in an underwater cave was borrowed from previous episodes. So what else is new? * Why this episode wasn't broadcast on St. Patrick's day, we'll never know!

s4e16: The Lobster Man
A lobster-like alien emerges from a capsule retrieved from the ocean floor. He claims that all he wants is one of Seaview's nuclear rods to power his ship for the homeward journey, but neither Captain Crane nor Admiral Nelson is convinced he can be trusted. Victor Lundin also played the neck-braced Hansjurg in Season 2's "The Menfish".
Sunday, January 28th, 1968
Poor Captain Crane. The things he had to go through. This time, he's in the Flying Sub, when he receives a distress call from the Seaview. He comes back to his sub, only to find it abandoned -- again. But wait, there's a force-field on the spiral stairs which knocks Crane out, and there's a stranger aboard who naturally shoots at him. Eventually Crane sees the crew, and he hears the voice of Nelson calling him a traitor. It takes about an hour, and a bullet in the shoulder (fired by guess who?), before Crane discovers aliens are testing the human race. Most of what happens is a nightmare, but missiles are actually fired!

s4e19: Secret of the Deep
Naval ships have been disappearing, and Seaview is on a hunt for the undersea installation responsible. They find a sea-lab that is not only well-armed but surrounded by overgrown and ferocious sea-creatures. To complicate matters, the guest expert aboard is a traitor. Various "dangerous denizens" of the deep from earlier episodes reappear here, thanks to re-used footage: there's a whale, and one of those globular-eyed bottom-dwelling monsters seen in such episodes as "Deadly Creature Below".

"You had no right -- no right to make that second dive without orders from me!" Nelson to Crane Another scientist with another artificial atmosphere (see Season 1's "The Condemned") that will revolutionize deep-sea diving. When will Admiral Nelson learn! Naturally, Captain Crane is used as a guinea pig for these dangerous experiments. And there are fatal side-effects. * A great Nelson/Crane argument takes place in the Admiral's cabin after the Captain has made his unauthorized second dive. * In this episode it is not Nelson who shoots Crane, but rather, Chip Morton. * Notice the tears of gratitude and relief in Crane's eyes after Nelson gives him the antidote at the very end of the episode. * Crane also shed a tear (from pain) in Season 3's "Day of Evil". Years later, David Hedison would appear in a Fantasy Island episode entitled: "Man-Beast"!

s4e21: Savage Jungle
Alien jungle growth is spreading across Italy, and before long -- thanks to a crewman who is really an alien spy -- the vegetation invades Seaview too. The Admiral has built a device that might help, but first he and Crane have to fight their way through the overgrown corridors to prevent the missiles being used to spread the infestation even farther. * Patrick Culliton played various crewmen over Voyage's 4 seasons.

Although treated in Sickbay with a special anti-radiation device, the Captain does not come out of his coma-like state. Doc can find no explanation. (Apparently, Doc hasn't read the script.) Corpsman Mallory has turned that life-saving device into a time-machine. Mallory is testing his fourth-dimension gadget on Crane before using it to enslave the entire world! A warped and insane Captain Crane from the future shoots and kills Admiral Nelson, because he believes the Admiral has held him back from achieving all he should have.

When Admiral Nelson (who was at the Nelson Institute at the time of the accident) hears of the destruction of the Seaview, he gets an impossible to refuse offer from Mr. Pem (who survived from A Time To Die): in exchange for the use of the sub's nuclear reactor, Pem will transport Nelson back in time to before the explosion which destroyed Seaview. Once back in time, Pem renergizes his time travel device and brings the sub back even further in time to the American Civil War. Before the crew has time to absorb this, the ship is boarded by Major General Benedict Arnold! Now Nelson has to stop Pem's far-reaching plan to take over the world and avoid the explosive disentergration of Seaview.
