Born as an Indian aristocrat, one Prince Dakkar, Nemo participated in a major 19th century uprising, the Indian Rebellion ofultimately quashed by the United Kingdom. Afterward Nemo kneels before a picture of his deceased wife and children, then sinks into a deep depression. Many of his prominent novels were made into shorts and feature-length films and some titles were made into movies more than once and television movies too. Through their experiences on the ship, Captain Nemo and Aronnax will be able to significantly contribute to the scientific community and benefit mankind. Such a leak could not be stopped; and the Scotia, her paddles half submerged, was obliged to continue her course. The bearings of the place were taken exactly, and the Moravian continued its route without apparent damage.

But the submarine's ultimate fate remains unknown. Finally, an educated middle class in the land of the Nautilus! Though interesting ones are a different matter. This was proto- Hard Science Fiction.
