The ostensible leader of the crew, though his qualifications, and even his grasp on reality, are questionable. He is generally found loitering on the bridge neglecting his duties. Murphy spends his time participating in scams and juvenile antics and generally causing problems that the crew have to solve. The only episode which features Murphy acting responsibly throughout is “7211”, which is a faithful reenactment of the original Sealab 2020 show. Captain Murphy is a parody of Captain Mike Murphy from Sealab 2020. Generally, Murphy is incapable to the point of incompetence. On more than one occasion, it has been implied that Murphy has gone insane due to the amount of time he spent underwater. However, the crew either doesn’t notice this or doesn’t care and usually follow his orders, even when they will directly lead to the crew’s deaths. Murphy is a practicing Alvian and has a deep seated fear of doppelgängers and especially flashlights, the latter a fear that there is no name for. After the death of Harry Goz, Murphy was written out of the show by having him leave Sealab to fight in the “Great Spice Wars”. It is implied that Murphy is the leader of the Rebel forces in this war, though the reasoning behind this is or its effect on the war are never delved into. A recap montage of Murphy’s moments were played in the final episode in memory of this voice actor. However, he later appeared in Archer, where he was voiced by Jon Hamm and debuted in the two-part episode “Sea Tunt”.
