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

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.

Bad Drama Good Comedy
24 June 2014 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Its hard to say anything positive about The Last Ship. They story line taps into the now long running virus end of the world scenario. The difference on this occasion is the survivors are a bunch of US navy types accompanied by a British scientist and her sidekick on a ship.

The acting is bad, so bad in fact, its funny. The Captain and his crew are so stoic and courageous it simply defies belief. They are poster kids for US military recruitment. Nothing phases them, the death of children and family, heck no.

To make the whole chuckle worthy adventure even worse there is lots of flag waving and slow mo saluting. Examples of stoic (read cheesy) bravery abound. Enemies in the opening episode, who happen to be Russian, are mowed down like wheat without a US casualty in sight. There's no stopping captain invincible and his team (yeah OK).

This is saccharine television at its worst. As a drama its a failure, but its unintentional comedic qualities are the only places (and they are few) where it truly shines.
