For a more down to earth (really underwater) SF conflict, how would the submarine from the 1990s NBC series "Seaquest, DSV" do in battle against the submarine Seaview from Irwin Allen's old 1960s series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"? Despite coming out later, the only futuristic weapons I ever saw the Seaquest use on the series were those interceptor torpedos. Not so futuristic, particularly since the Russians invented REAL antitorpedo torpedos back in the same decade, the 1990s. Admiral Nelson's Seaview, on the other hand, had a built-in laser in at least the later episodes. I think Seaview would win, but that's just my opinion. Any takers?
