The battleship Missouri is about to be decomissioned. Casey Ryback is Captain Adam's personal cook. And Ryback is always butting heads with the ship's XO Commander Krill but the Captain always intercedes. One day, after the President visits the Missouri, which is also the Captain's birthday, the Captain learns that a helicopter has been cleared to land on the ship by Commander Krill, which he was not informed of. When questioned Krill tells the Captain that it's a surprise for his birthday, the Captain then allows it. Later after another one of their scuffles, Krill has Ryback locked in the freezer. During the party, the rock band reveals themselves to be mercenaries, led by William Stranix, a CIA operative, who is in league with Krill to unload all of the ship's nuclear warheads. They lock up all of the crew and make preparations to remove the warheads. And Krill remembers Ryback, Stranix sends two of his men to take care of Ryback, only thing is that Ryback took care of them. Upon ... Written by
Captain Garza states that Ryback led a SEAL team to take the airport in Panama and was the only survivor of the team. In one of the major blunders of the Panama invasion SEAL team 4 was sent to take the airport. In that mission 4 SEALs were killed and 8 were wounded. Generally, Army Rangers take airports but the Navy was unhappy with the amount of participation in the invasion so the SEALs were given the task. See more »
The events in the film were said to be happening during mid to late December, 1991. At one point in the film, Admiral Greer calls on the U.S.S. Nimitz task force to respond to the threat, which it does. In August of 1991, the Nimitz had just returned to her base in Bremerton Washington, from a tour in the Persian Gulf. From October of 1991 to May of 1992, she was on what is known as "selected restricted availability (SRA)", meaning that she was undergoing maintenance, upgrades, repairs, etc. during that time, and was probably not in a position to render assistance to Pearl Harbor. Not to mention that Pearl Harbor has it's own naval and air bases that would be more than capable of dealing with the threat of a rouge battleship with nuclear missile capability, and were probably closer to striking distance of the U.S.S. Missouri than anything on board the Nimitz could be. See more »

When terrorists decide they need nuclear Tomahawk cruise missiles 'to sell like hot cakes,' they turn to the U.S.S. Missouri, the fastest and most powerful naval force ever to sail the seas... (The Missouri fired the first shots of the Gulf War... Her powerful 16' guns destroyed Iraqi bunkers... Her Tomahawk missiles rocketed deep into the heart of Baghdad.)
As luck would have it, Chief Ryback (Steven Seagal) happens to be on board working as 'head cook.' Ryback is seen by all as a 'sorry-looking sailor' but his true identity as an ex-SEAL expert in martial arts, explosives, weapons, and tactics, is the Captain's best kept secret...
