The show is about the renegade crew of a United States NavyOhio-classballistic missile submarine, the fictional USS Colorado (SSBN-753), that defies an order to launch nuclear missiles towards Pakistan, a decision that cost the previous commanding officer his job when he refused to follow similar orders without an explanation or confirmation. When his replacement also questions the same orders, the vessel is fired upon without warning and the crew are left for dead. Realizing that they have been declared enemies of their own country, they set up camp on the fictional island of Sainte Marina, and declare themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability. At the same time, the crew must find a way to prove their innocence, find out who set them up, and hopefully return home.
Featuring: Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman and Autumn Ressner.
It looks like it might be interesting show, and I'm going to at least try and watch it. I just hope they don't make it too over the top political, with some of the lines in the trailer I could see it happening. One of the lines I've seen was to the effect of "not following orders from a president I don't recognize as being legitimate" or something to that effect. It could easily turn into left bashing right show with a warmongering rightest president that didn't really win the election like Bush, or a right bashing left show with birthers bashing an illegitimate, illegal president like Obama. I could see this being too easy to take either one of those tracks and that would just make it crap.
