A US sub picks up Navy SEALs and receives an order for a nuke launch. Due to the circumstances of the order, the Captain refuses to fire. After escaping an attack from another US sub, the crew and SEALs take refuge on a small island.
In the season finale, a violent battle for control erupts on the submarine, which leaves the Colorado vulnerable to capture by a third party - one with an exploitative plan. The question becomes: can...
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
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.
Finally i can watch something again since "24" finished
All i can say is don't listen to this people who say anything bad about this show. Just watch it and then decide. If you love action and adrenaline rushes like i do you will LOVE it! This is by far the best show out there now. Why i say that because if something like big bang theory and other crap shows can be on top then this here will be Godlike. Forget also about this reviews saying its not realistic...its much more realistic then it isn't. This is the only way you will get adrenaline rushes anything more "realistic" would be to boring. After watching the show i just feel good and i am sad that there isn't a captain like this one for real, because there are a lot of bad guys out there trying to destroy our world.
