The Complete Series
after rescuing some Navy
SEALs from the sea, the Captain of a
United States nuclear submarine
refuses to accept the validity of an
order to nuke Pakistan
via a source
only to be used in the fall of DC
causing the entire crew to become
fugitives in the gripping, explosive
military series from Sony Pictures
Television Last Resort: The Complete
Series, now available on DVD...
FIVE HUNDRED FEET UNDER THE INDIAN OCEAN, the US Submarine Colorado receives
orders to fire nuclear missiles at Pakistan via an old, Cold War, source that
should mean that DC is incapacitated.
Captain Marcus Chaplin (Andrew Braugher: Television's Men Of A Certain Age)
and Executive Officer 'XO' Sam Kendal (Scott Speedman: The Vow) refuse
to act on the suspect order an action supported by Lieutenant
Grace Shepard (Daisy Betts: Shutter), daughter of Admiral Arthur Shepard
Top Secret Emergency Action Message from Emergency Antarctic Command to the
USS Colorado may be linked to the mission of the US Navy Seals they have just
and exciting, fast-moving
series that takes
to the next level...
But not everyone on board is as cautious as Marcus. Master Chief Joseph Prosser
(Robert Patrick: Walk The Line), the Chief of the Boat (COB), believes
that the order should have been followed and some of the crew are with him.
Questioning the legitimacy of the order and requesting a communication from
someone in authority, Marcus is alarmed when the Colorado is fired upon and
left on the bottom of the ocean. An experimental new system, Perseus, keeps
them off-radar until they cross the equator.
Alienated from the United States, Marcus and his crew, along with the Seals,
head for the harbour of an exotic island that turns out to be owned by the sinister
drug baron Julian Serrat (Sahr Ngaujah: Stomp The Yard).
On the island is a Nato Early Warning Station with a sophisticated computer
system operated by a team led by Frenchwoman Sophie Girard (Camille De Pazzis:
Gamer), who takes a romantic interest in Sam Kendal. Sophie is also supposed
to be taking soil samples for Julian, who believes the island has hidden mineral
riches he can exploit.
SEAL Barry Hopper (David Rees Snell), shot and wounded during the mission in
Pakistan, remains incapacitated but he seems to know more about what went on
in Pakistan and, crucially, why. Meanwhile, his friend and fellow SEAL James
King (Daniel Lissing: Television's Crownies) falls in love with islander
Tani Tumrenjack (Dichen Lachman: Television's Dollhouse).
Julian kidnaps three Colorado crew members, including Pilar Cortez (Jessica
Comacho), in an attempt at controlling Marcus; but far more worrying for the
captain is the knowledge that someone is working against them from the inside.
Sam's wife Christine (Jessy Schram: Unstoppable) is alone and afraid
and his friend Paul Wells (Jay Hernandez) is apparently looking out for her.
However, he is being influenced by those who are working against the Colorado.
Christine is befriended and helped by Kylie (Autumn Reeser: The Girl Next
Door), whose father Barton Sinclair (Michael Gaston) owns the company that
developed Perseus. But Kylie's boyfriend Robert Mitchell (Darri Ingolfsson)
is not at all he seems to be.
Both Christine and Kylie are in great danger; and somehow Marcus and those loyal
to him among the Colorado must prove their allegiance to the United States of
America and clear their names. As negotiations hot up with unwelcome input from
the Russians, Chinese, Americans and Pakistanis, their lives are in danger at
every turn. They have yet to discover that those involved in this conspiracy
of nuclear proportions can be linked directly to The White House
and the President himself.
