Battle ship captain CO commander Tom Chandler courteously accommodates zoologist Dr. Rachel Scott's wishes to research birds in the Arctic while his crew engages incommunicado in war games. When his patience is exhausted, a satellite call to the White House has his return order overruled by the Pentagon, the top-secret research is national security priority. Then a Russian force attacks her last and successful sample hunt, but is fought-off. Chandler orders a hasty return home, but finally learns the world is in the grip of an unprecedented pandemic which wiped out most of humanity. It started from Egypt but spreads over all continents, wiping out all demographic, economic and political order. They attempt to bring the bird virus sample, the only hope to develop a vaccine, to a US lab, but the disease already rendered the entire country lawless, hence too unsafe, so Scott must improvise in the primitive lab aboard.

The sun as the first shot of this series, is a tribute to the 1980 film "Virus" (Day of Resurrection (1980)) that opened in the same way. See more »


The nuclear missile detonated around 1000 +/- 200 miles from the ship. There would be no noticeable effect of the blast. The crew would have never known a nuke had detonated. A ship's screen showed that the ship was nearly 400 miles west of Brest, France. The nuke was tracked for three seconds and traveled about half the length of the English Channel. The missile travels about 8-10 more seconds before the nuke detonates. See more »


CO CDR Tom Chandler: Mike, we're not going home.
XO Mike Slattery: What are you talking about?
CO CDR Tom Chandler: The lab's two hundred miles inland. You saw the news footage.
XO Mike Slattery: We'll fight our way in there if we have to.
CO CDR Tom Chandler: And then what? Generators run out in a couple weeks, maybe the civilian population tries to overrun it. There's too many variables.
XO Mike Slattery: So what do we do? We stay on the ship?
CO CDR Tom Chandler: Dr. Scott says she has what she needs right here.
XO Mike Slattery: [scoffs] Dr. Scott. We have standing orders from the president of the United States.

Brilliant brilliant brilliant
23 July 2016 | by nicola-j-peacockSee all my reviews

I don't Understand the negative reviews on this series. It's adrenaline nail biting patriotic edge of your seat drama and it's great! The characters are believable and acted really well. It's original sophisticated and had epic battle scenes. I'm only on episode 2 of series 1 and I'm hooked. So for all you critics out there sort ya selves out! See it for what it is; it's a well executed magnetic drama that's up there with the best of them. Good on you Amaerica you've done your selves proud. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. OK so some of its cheesy but that's what you need sometimes; for the good guys to come through. There's enough s**t going on in the world that sometimes you need something as brilliant as The Last Ship to give you faith and inspiration.
