When Earth's Van Allen Belts mysteriously catch on fire, the crew of the USOS Seaview attempts a dangerous mission to stop the flames and save the planet. Unfortunately, the sub's commander Admiral Harriman Nelson (Walter Pidgeon) doesn't wait for proper approval for this venture, and that creates some mutinous feelings.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea...
Violence: Prideful mention is made of sub’s weapons, atomic missiles and military capabilities. Characters find themselves in peril from natural disasters, a freak magnetic storm, radiation, sea creatures, heat exposure, a minefield and enemy attacks. Episodes of sabotage result in danger to the crew, a fire and poisonous gas in the ventilation system. Characters are attacked and bitten by a shark: one is killed. Men on board the exterior of a submarine get submerged when the vessel descends suddenly. Stress causes men to fight with one another verbally and physically. One character commits suicide and others are killed in an explosion. Aquatic animals are shot and speared (some blood shown). Corpses are seen of men killed by excessive heat. Torpedo fire is exchanged. Water floods some areas of a submarine. Characters are threatened with a grenade.
Sexual Content: A man’s bare chest is seen.
Alcohol / Drug Use:
Cigar smoking is seen.
The script makes special mention of having women on board (one is a secretary and the other a psychiatrist). A hyper-religious character has a fatalistic attitude.
