UEO seaQuest DSV 4600
DESCRIPTION The largest, fastest, most powerful submarine ever conceived, seaQuest is the flagship of the United Earth Ocean's forces.

Carrying a multinational crew of 242, she traverses the world, policing explorer ships and deep ocean colonies, battling to keep the peace in these very volitile times, in the most hostile environment found on Earth.

When an undersea conflict erupts threatening the world peace, when a colony is under siege by futuristic techno-pirates, when a ship containing planet-threatening cargo signals dire distress -- seaQuest, with its futuristic technology, is the first ship -- the only ship -- qualified to answer the call.
