Steve Austin is aboard a sabotaged nuclear submarine when a court-martialed admiral and his daughter use sharks - trained and controlled by technology - to attempt to steal the sub.
Did You Know?
In "Sharks: Part 1" (1977) Steve Austin (Lee Majors) is aboard a nuclear submarine USS Stingray (SSN-501). "SSN 501" can be seen in a stock footage external shot of the submarine under water. Though fictional for this period in time, the last real USS Stingray was decommissioned following WWII. This same submarine was used previously in the Bionic Woman "Kill Oscar: Part III" (1976) - A shot while Jaime and Steve are on the submarine has a plaque showing that the boat it is "SSN 501". If Steve Austin were to be on any submarine, it would only be appropriate that it were a nuclear submarine, seeing as how the show title's Spanish translation is "El Hombre Nuclear." See more
When the shark-cage cable snaps, there is a loud echoing "in dry air" crashing sound, whereas a breaking cable underwater would just produce a brief muffled pop. See more
