In the original Aquazone line, the heroic Aquanaut miners fought against the villainous Aquasharks and their leader Thresher for control of the crystal mines. The Aquanauts were a group of miners based at the Neptune Discovery Lab, who utillised submarines and submersibles of all shapes and sizes to look for Hydrolator crystals, presumably to make oxygen, or to sell.
The yellow base colour of the subs and the bowl-shaped cockpit pieces gave the Aquanauts a rather realistic appearance that was close to actual mini submarines. However, the second wave in 1996 brought a vessel that featured wheels.
