This novel tells about the odyssey of Professor Aronnax and his fellows (Mr. Conseil and Ned Land), captured by Captain Nemo in his submarine (the Nautilus), and their forced travel under the seas, that included the discovering of Atlantis.
After Tom Paris's father read this novel to him, he became obsessed with stories about the ocean. He re-read this novel a self-claimed "20,000 times", and it fueled many childhood fantasies about sea travels, including a wish to join the Federation Naval Patrol. Tom's passion to make his fantasies real eventually led him to breaking direct command orders and a subsequent demotion to ensign. (VOY: "Thirty Days")
