‘Indeed, the narwhal is armed with a sort of ivory sword, a halberd, according to the expression of certain naturalists. The principal tusk has the hardness of steel. Some of these tusks have been found buried in the bodies of whales, which the unicorn always attacks with success. Others have been drawn out, not without trouble, from the bottoms of ships, which they had pierced through and through, as a gimlet pierces a barrel. The Museum of the Faculty of Medicine of Paris possesses one of these defensive weapons, two yards and a quarter in length, and fifteen inches in diameter at the base.

Such was the last fact, which resulted in exciting once more the torrent of public opinion. From this moment all unlucky casualties which could not be otherwise accounted for were put down to the monster.

This is one of Verne’s most ambitious novels and much of his inspiration came from his own experiences on the sea. Well ahead of his time, he had a profound influence on engineers, inventors and designers, especially as submarine technology was in its infancy. The pioneering submarine designer Simon Lake credited his inspiration to this book and its futuristic look at the underwater world. Verne wasn’t called the ‘Father of Science Fiction’ for nothing – many of his ideas came to fruition after he wrote about them. Verne’s vision of the future of submarines came from the one of the earliest successful submarines, built in 1800 by Robert Fulton, also called the Nautilus.

I was perfectly up in the subject which was the question of the day. How could I be otherwise? I had read and reread all the American and European papers without being any nearer a conclusion. This mystery puzzled me. Under the impossibility of forming an opinion, I jumped from one extreme to the other. That there really was something could not be doubted, and the incredulous were invited to put their finger on the wound of the Scotia.

AT THE PERIOD WHEN THESE events took place, I had just returned from a scientific research in the disagreeable territory of Nebraska, in the United States. In virtue of my office as Assistant Professor in the Museum of Natural History in Paris, the French Government had attached me to that expedition. After six months in Nebraska, I arrived in New York towards the end of March, laden with a precious collection. My departure for France was fixed for the first days in May. Meanwhile I was occupying myself in classifying my mineralogical, botanical, and zoological riches, when the accident happened to the Scotia.

The hull is spindle-shaped, with a somewhatheavy superstructure that seems inconsistent with the lattice-like centerlineram. There is a huge circular salon window, no obvious dive planes orrudder and a frail looking propeller. The long wheelhouse locatedamidships, is shaped vaguely like Goff's and tapers into the deck as hisdoes. See the original image on .

rtistand illustrator Gary Gianni designed this forhis graphic novel version of published by Flex. This has a more or less spindle shaped hullembedded in an oval cross-section cylinder that forms the deck. Most noticeableare the large shell-like fins on the bow and stern. The bow fin narrowsinto a corkscrew ram. There's no noticeable wheelhouse but the deckfeatures a raised platform at the aft end. The platform includes a large circular hatch,an elaborate railing, and a short stairway down to the main deck. Thereare fin-like dive planes resembling the vertical fins on the forward hull andthree large windows spaced along the upper hull.

lydeChildress sent me a photo of this scratch-built model. The design demonstrates how you might take elements of Goff's and finish with something that looks nothing like it. The hill is moreangular with flat sides. There is no separate ram, but the bow appearsreinforced to provide a ram. Several triangular fins, large rakers, on theupper hull serve to protect the super structure during an attack. Thewheelhouse, with perhaps a forward-mounted lamp, resembles no other. Thereare two deck hatches and a dorsal fin that might be a nod to Goff or maybe justa counter-point to the fins at the bow. There are horizontal fins high onthe hull and on a line with the plate-covered salon window that probably includedive planes. There is a single prop in a somewhat stylized vertical tailfin. The only part of the design that resembles Goff's in any way is thekeel structure. The dive hatch aft of the salon window is very like Goff'sbut the corkscrew mechanism is a dead giveaway.
