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

Trivia

At the present time, 2012, there is no USS Colorado in commission with the US Navy or Coast Guard. Over the naval history of the United States, there have been three previous ships with the name USS Colorado, with a fourth presently under contract to be built and ordered, but not yet under construction or commission.
  • 1) USS Colorado (built 1856), a three-masted steam screw frigate in US Navy commission from 1858-1876;
  • 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;
  • 3) USS Colorado (BB-45, built starting 1919), a Colorado-class battleship in US Navy commission from 1923-1947;
  • 4) USS Colorado (SSN-788), a Virginia-class nuclear-powered fast attack submarine under construction contract awarded to Huntington Ingalls Industries in partnership with the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics, Newport News, Virginia in December 2008.

This Promises To Deliver Excellence
2 October 2012 | by zack_wallSee all my reviews

I just finished watching the very first episode on Hulu tonight, and was quite blown away. This is an action-packed, thought-provoking, intense and extremely well-done show. The level of acting is superb, and the plot offers many twists and turns while leaving the audience with a giant cliffhanger for the next episode to begin answering. Great start to the season, and I absolutely cannot wait for more. If I were in the Navy, I'd want this Captain in charge of my boat, that much is certain. It also begs the question; what would you do in his situation? If you were thrown under the bus by your own nation, how would you react? This is an excellent addition to this fall's television lineup, and judging by the ratings, I'd say that many others agree with me. You can bet I'll be tuning in until the show's conclusion, which hopefully will be a long ways away from now.
