A number of years ago, there was a fan fiction site called Deep Angel. It started off as a seaQuest fan fiction story called seaFire ASV, but the story evolved into its own unique canon, featuring a super-cavitating submarine aircraft carrier in the near future.

Suffice it to say, it was awesome. They had a large following with forums, CGI shots, scripts, and even a game in development.

The site, DeepAngel.com, has since gone offline. Does anyone have an idea what happened to it?

It has evolved actually. You will find it is now called Empire Oceans Arise: http://www.empirethefilm.com/

    Awesome, thanks! I had been looking for that on and off for a couple years now. I wonder why they didn't forward their old domain to the new site? I'll upvote when I can - damn daily limit, heh. – Chad Levy Nov 4 '11 at 17:15
  • Doh: empirethefilm.com now just hosts generic advert. – Paul D. Waite Jun 2 '13 at 2:28

    The content might be available at — I’m not familiar with it myself, so I’m not sure. – Paul D. Waite Jun 2 '13 at 2:30
  • That domain is completely dead now. – Valorum Oct 21 '16 at 0:00

The original (archived, released episodes) of seaFire ASV are available to be read online here. The site's immediate successor; Atlantis DSV can also be found on the same server here.

The site which followed (Empire DSV) has since gone offline. No working backup seems to exist, I'm afraid, but from what I can gather, it was mostly just an archive of the material above anyway.


It appears to have evolved once more to an e-novel called Empire: http://www.empirenovels.com/

The art and story appear to be the same, and the copyright in the footer shows 2016.

  • Well, they've certainly cannibalised some of the previous artwork. I don't see that there's a universe connection to DSV on the new site. – Valorum Feb 1 '17 at 18:53
  • Yeah, I should probably remove the seaQuest tag then since it's an entirely different universe. For me there's still a connection since that's where their story evolved from. – Chad Levy Feb 1 '17 at 21:20
