Captain Marcus Chaplin is commander of the USS Colorado, a ballistic missile submarine. He has a good crew and all are quite good at their jobs. They receive an order to launch two missiles - the target is Pakistan - but they've received the order over a low security radio band and when he requests confirmation, Chaplin is relieved of command. His XO Sam Kendal also requests confirmation and soon after, the Colorado is fired upon - by a U.S. destroyer. Chaplin realizes they are in very deep and heads to a nearby island for safety. The locals aren't too keen with the navy's arrival and Chaplin has to send a message to Washington - one they will clearly understand to mean they and the Colorado are to be left alone.

Based on submarine's position reported by Lieutenant Grace Shepard, i.e 1012 Klick South of Sri Lanka and crossing Equator, a nuclear missile fired from anywhere nearby that position will not cross over mainland United States as reported by the officer (crossing over Indiana). See more »


SEAL Officer James King: Wild guess. Up until an hour ago, you ran things here. Drugs, guns, girls. Whatever it is, it's no match for the boomer floating in your harbor. You're done, friend.

SEAL Officer James King: Ahh. I understand there might be some cultural differences here, so I'll translate. When someone where I'm from calls you friend, they don't consider you one.
Mayor Julian Serrat: This is my island. If I allow your presence, it comes with certain terms and conditions. Is that clear, friend?
SEAL Officer James King: He's first. He's the only real shooter in your ...

Good Start.. hopefully will continue to deliver!!
29 September 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When i first saw this show in the list of upcoming TV shows...The plot sounded good.. a Sub being shot down by another Sub.. Huge Government conspiracy... sounds really good rite... but i was a little skeptical... finally saw it and it was good... the Pilot episode or as the name says "Captain" was brilliant.. Andre Braugher gives a brilliant performance... so did the others around him.. the first episode had enough story and action to hook us in... and it had enough mystery as to who is behind all this huge conspiracy.. its shot and directed well... its different this show... hopefully they will continue to do a good show and not get lost after a few good episodes!!
