I think I might start reading Bischoff's seaQuest DSV novel "The Ancient" that was published exactly a year after "Grounded" (Grounded appeared in March 93, "The Ancient" appeared in March 94). I've seen a few reviews on his seaQuest novel online, but it seems to me that the reviewers were giving the books negative scores because they assumed that he had seen or had seen some of the show, when that would not have been the case (seaQuest debuted on TV in September 93), so I'm not going to go by those biased reviews.
I've read it and it's a pretty bad story. It feels way more like something that would've come out of that show's horrible second season than a season 1 episode.
