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

The US Navy allowed the production team to film scenes aboard the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers USS Halsey and USS Dewey as well as the USS Iowa museum ship. The destroyers were sailed several days out to sea so that the cameras could shoot 360 degrees without having to worry about coastlines, buildings, and other ships appearing in the background. Many of the sailors in the background were the crews of those ships going about their duties as cameras rolled. See more »

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.

Interesting and entertaining...for the first two seasons
15 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

(Review updated after Season 3).

A deadly virus has destroyed much of life on earth. A US Navy destroyer, USS Nathan James, is sent on a secret mission to try to develop a vaccine. On board is Doctor Rachel Scott, a top microbiologist / immunologist. It is her job to create the vaccine. In order to complete the mission, the ship has to sail to many different parts of the world, with many hindrances to her mission's progress along the way...

First two seasons were entertaining. A rollicking naval adventure with a bit of plague, post-apocalypse scenarios and survival-of-mankind thrown in. Fairly accurate in its portrayal of the military.

Not perfect though. Could be a bit gung ho sometimes, and the plot a bit clumsy or contrived. However, it was never dull and there are many worse ways to spend your time.

Season 2 was a good follow-up to Season 1, and even slightly better than S1. Tighter plot and some good naval action too.

Unfortunately, two seasons was pretty much the natural life of the series, yet the producers made Seasons 3 and 4, and intend to make Season 5. Once the cure had been distributed, that was pretty much it, end of story. What follows is not interesting or engaging and often feels clumsy and contrived. I gave up after seven episodes of Season 3.
