Storyline

500 feet beneath the ocean's surface, the U.S. ballistic missile submarine Colorado receive their orders. Over a radio channel, designed only to be used if their homeland has been wiped out, they're told to fire nuclear weapons at Pakistan. Captain Marcus Chaplin demands confirmation of the orders only to be unceremoniously relieved of duty by the White House. XO Sam Kendal finds himself suddenly in charge of the submarine and facing the same difficult decision. When he also refuses to fire without confirmation of the orders, the Colorado is targeted, fired upon, and hit. The submarine and its crew find themselves crippled on the ocean floor, declared rogue enemies of their own country. Now, with nowhere left to turn, Chaplin and Kendal take the sub on the run and bring the men and women of the Colorado to an exotic island. Here they will find refuge, romance and a chance at a new life, even as they try to clear their names and get home. Written by ahmetkozan

  • 2) USS Colorado (ACR-7, built starting 1903, later renamed USS Pueblo [CA-7], before the launch of USS Colorado #3), a Pennsylvania-class armored cruiser in US Navy commission from 1905-1927;

Great Drama
19 October 2012 | by lscennaSee all my reviews

Television is about fantasy and this drama takes it to a wonderful and exciting new level. I Can't wait to see how the plot thickens! Last Resort is an intelligent and well written drama that has such amazing actors who I've been fans of for years. I've been a fan of Scott Speedman since Felicity. And what show doesn't excel with the great talents of Andre Braugher. I highly recommend it for those who loved JAG, Lost, and Law and Order. My husband and I agree that it is a total mix of Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide. It raises the big question...what if this really happened. I wish On-Demand had future shows! I can't stop from being on the edge of my seat.
