    With the recent release (and my subsequent purchase) of SeaQuest DSV, Season 1 on DVD, I have a renewed interest in both the show and its props. I know there are a few members here who have both replica and screen-used pieces, and I'm curious to see what's out there.

    Also, if you haven't picked up the DVD set, grab it. The quality is as good as can be expected from what's probably a 12-year-old 3/4" tape transfer to disc, which is actually pretty good, and how can you not love the show anyway? :D

    A few new aquisitions since last posted on this subject -
    Finally managed to get a suitable mannequin for my costumes and a great cabinet for my props. By now it must be the largest collection of SQ in the UK...But that's really not saying much. With the release of the DVD (long overdue but excellent) Hopefully a bigger fanbase will emerge. In the meantime, enjoy the pics.. :)

    Newbie post, coming through. look out. Ok i am fessing up already so back up off me Jeff ( Borgdrone )
    the SOB keeps telling me i am not alone in the crazy world of seaquest collecting and that there is another, i though i was all alone. so here goes a few of my humble things i have collected over the years. everybody has a cross to bear, mine is my seaquest collections which is slowly but surely taken over just about everything else. i have , shelves full of stuff , walls covered, and a closet full of costumes. Hope you all enjoy. i just realised i dont have pictures of all my cool stuff, whipping out the camera as we speak, we post some more later. thanks again.

    thanks

    Here is a link to a smattering of the SQ props I 'ended up with' after I worked on the show for two years:

    http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mommydawn200...n2000/my_photos

    I haven't labeled most of the pics, so I'm happy to answer any question about specific items.

    Probably my favorite prop is the season 1 POC (the folding computer). Its a great little design the was featured very infrequently on the show during season 1. I may have the only surviving unmodified unit- most were hacked up/repainted for use in the other two seasons.

    The POC I have has a lighted screen (the graphic on it is really wrinkled)- this one was seen in the last scene of the episode 'Such Great Patience'.

    My second favorite prop is the season 1 (orange) Vpal communicator- another cool design.

    If anyone can help me identify the computer prop in the 3rd and 4th picture, I'd appreciate it. I believe it was a season 1 prop, so those of you with the DVD set, keep an eye out for it as you watch. It has a lighted screen and two slots that fit floppy disks.

    I also have a lot more costume items that I don't have pictures of yet, as well as a large collection of uniform/costume patches from the show (many of which I designed). Some day now that I have a digital camera, I'll put together a real website of all my stuff.

    Awesome stuff, everyone. I was afraid the thread had died already. :)

    Tomorrow is going to be SeaQuest Marathon Day for me. I'm going to watch as many episodes as time allows for, and probably do it on the computer so I can start scren-capping stuff I think I could build. Having these great shots of *real* props and costumes is a wonderful bonus. :D

    (edit) SbsAgent, I just noticed your glowing squid poo. That's the best prop EVER. :lol

    Cool stuff SbsAgent. I recognize some of my own handywork in your pics (the COAs from the big auction, the Deon Logos, SQ crew watch.) That storyboad is by artist Mark Simon, who still works in the Orlando area- I just saw him the other day in fact.

    I'd love to know what all you have that you haven't photographed.

    Forgot to add my SQ Crew jacket. This thing is just gorgeous;

    I also have dozens of continuity polaroids and a portfolio of artwork. Not strictly props are the character models I did for a proposed SQ fanfic animation.

    Was the POC built out of a child's electronic game/learning toy? For some reason, I get a tremor in the force that tells me that I have seen that design before... For some reason, Im thinking outa Hong Kong in the early 90's.

    Anyone know what POC stands for?

    It was SEAPOC -

    SeaQuest Personal Onboard Computer.

    An excellent mini version of it came with the Playmates figures. :)

    I don't think so, but I'm not sure. The props themselves were cast pieces, but its possible the original shape may have come from something. I tend to think that it was an original design and build- there was a lot of design and construction that went into the beginning of the show.

    I'll try to come up with some stories for you in a bit. One tidbit about that 'SQ Crew' watch- those were something done up by us in the art department. The set designer Tricia Eckoff brought in a magazine add for putting your company logo on a watch. We chose two styles that looked 'seaQuest-ie', and took orders from anyone in the crew who wanted them. The idea was to have something that looked like it 'could' be used on screen, but it actually wasn't. I did the artwork for the logo to send in. As I recall we ended up doing several mass orders as they were so popular with everyone.

    Hey Mark, thanks for the tidbit, is there anyway of knowing who got what watch, or are they all the same? Let me know if you have any interesting stories, i would love to hear them.
    thanks

    Does anyone know the location of Lucas' Darwin... talk to... device? :p

    I heard Brandis took it home after the show wrapped up, but where is it now?

    Nice VPAL from the first season. Kit or build it yourself? Also Propman, those are awesome-all from the show right? Keep it up-especially if you've got a SeaPOC in there.

    So you are the one who won those 'disks' on ebay recently. I have what must the the other set of those they were Lucas' music disks from the first season episode with Kelly Martin (cant recall the title now). I have the one with the band name 'Reciprocal Nuns'.

    The Propman,

    I see a little more of my work there- the Omni Pacific tickets from 'Destination Terminal', season 3.

    That yellow device was from Brody's escape pod in 'Daggers', season 2.

    Very nice collection of VPALs indeed.

    Yes, the Vocorder (Dolphin talker) went to Brandis after the show. As I recall, the prop master Kurt Thoreson had to FedEx it to him when things wrapped up (the cast was long gone when we were breaking down everything). We all thought he should have it. Who knows where it is now; My guess would be that his family (parents) have it.

    This prop is equipped with a red LED indicator and a flourescent light-up screen. There is a tiny slide swith on the side that turns both on. The prop is exceptionally clean and well made- the only flaw is that the screen graphic is wrinkled and taped on with black electrical tape. I have wanted to fix it to make a nicer display, but since its an identifyable screen used piece, I haven't touched it. I'd love to get parts to make another one some day- perhaps somebody from Propper Effects still has the molds?
