Space Strikers is a French animated series based on the Jules Verne novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. A multi-national production, made in Europe and Korea, Space Strikers combines conventional line drawing with computer animation to achieve a three dimensional effect in selected sequences, labeled "Strikervision 3-D." The series was distributed by Saban Entertainment in the United States and aired on UPN from September 10, 1995 to December 3, 1995.
Space Strikers follows the outer space exploits of a descendant of Verne's Captain Nemo. Captain Nemo captains a heavily-armed super spacecraft, the Nautilus, which more closely resembles a submarine than a rocket ship. His crew members include: Ned Land, a fellow human, Dakkar, a man from another planet who has been transformed to resemble a wolf, a robot named Aronnax, and a blonde female named Dana.
Nemo and his crew battle Master Phantom, who believes he is destined to rule the galaxy. Before adopting the identity of Master Phantom, he was once human, and a close friend of Nemo's when the two were youths at the space academy. However, Phantom believes Nemo deliberately abandoned him on an asteroid during a meteor shower. Wounded, his life was saved by the evil Metallic, who turned him into a Darth Vader-type figure, part-man, part-machine. The consuming ambition of Master Phantom is now to establish dominion in space and to secure his vengeance against Nemo. Nemo, by contrast, is in the forefront of the fight for freedom, as he and Master Phantom engage in the "ultimate battle" across the galaxy.
Each episode depicts an encounter between the two adversaries, on distant planets and abandoned space stations. While Master Phantom has unlimited resources and fleets of spacecraft to hurl at the Nautilus, Nemo must rely on clever tactics to outwit his adversary. He also has the power of "the stone of Solara," a magical talisman which for brief periods can make Nemo almost invincible.
