Storyline

Naval Destroyer Nathan James is sent on what they're told is a research mission in the Arctic. Accompanying them is scientist, Rachel Scott. After a few months in the Arctic while Scott is on the ice doing research, some men attack them. They get back to the ship and the Commander, Tom Chandler asks the doctor what's going on. She says that a deadly disease broke out a few months ago. At first, they thought it was contained but they had no cure. They felt that the cure was in the Arctic which why she's here. But she has since received word that it has now spread to most of the globe. Chandler tries to call the President but learns the President and Vice President are dead and the US government might not have long to survive. The current President tells him that the Nathan James was not in the hot zone so he and his crew are OK. But now it's up to them to safeguard Scott because she holds the key to the planet's survival. But there are those who want the cure too and they will do ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

Some might be confused as to why C.O. Tom Chandler is sometimes referred to as "Captain" and other times "Commander" during seasons one and two. This is due to the ancient naval tradition of calling whoever is in command of a vessel "Captain", regardless of the actual rank they hold. Usually only very large ships (such as cruisers and aircraft carriers) have commanding officers that carry the actual rank of Captain; most medium sized vessels (such as destroyers, frigates and submarines) are captained by officers who carry the rank of Commander, and smaller vessels (such as patrol boats and transport ships) are often commanded by officers with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. So while Chandler carried the rank of Commander during seasons one and two, since he was the commanding officer of the Nathan James he would be referred to as "Captain" whenever he was giving orders or being addressed as the C.O. of the Nathan James.

Goofs

There is a missing explanation on the need for the primordial strain. Like most mutations, they were random and various, resulting is possibly 1000's or even millions of different variants. By some chance (or perhaps by design) this process halted. Their only hope was to return to the original strain for a cure/vaccine and hope that it would be able to work with all of the mutations.

why so many haters?
27 July 2014 | by Kate RabanSee all my reviews

I actually loved it. I was not expecting accurate military regulations etc. I grew up in the military and am still around it so yes I see the errors. But the show is good I think it grips you and the actors are good! I felt Eric Dane has a commanding presence. His support cast is OK, some of the actors I could totally do without but the rate the show is going they may perish soon enough anyhow. I must say though after reading a lot of the reviews I wonder if the haters just enjoy complaining...if they know so much about the prefect military drama and how to engage the audience why don't they try writing a screen play? I'd be more than happy to read it and provide personalized feedback. Am I truly the only one feeling that way?
