Looks like a job for Kevin Costner. I did like the movie.

I liked that episode. I find the idea of an ocean planet interesting. I love the ocean.

Lovely place except for the weather and the Mandalorian fellow.



I love these two Melville lines:
Posted like silent sentinels all around the town, stand thousands upon thousands of mortal men fixed in ocean reveries. [...] Nothing will content them but the extremest limit of the land; loitering under the shady lee of yonder warehouses will not suffice. - Moby Dick, Chapter 1

Probably make it as hard as concrete at lower depths… and make swimming very difficult.
