Watch Last Resort

The last resort is an intense political drama centered on the most politically intriguing. Friendly fire incident ever to occur in US history, Andre Brauer plays Marcus Chaplin Capt. of the USS Colorado which is a Navy Ohio class ballistic missile submarine, which has a cargo of 17 nuclear missiles. The Colorado receives orders to launch their highly destructive cargo on Pakistan even though no declaration of war has yet declared not to mention that these orders do not come through the regular channels. But instead are relayed through the emergency channel located in the Antarctic, which is to be used only in the event of Washington DC's distraction or disabling of regular channels because of this anomaly in protocol. Capt. Chaplin is reluctant to fire until getting confirmation, either through the proper channels or from someone whose authority he recognizes directly such as the Secretary of Defense.

At this point, the crew of the vessel begins to pick sides. Some believe they should follow the order that they are given without question, because they are good sailors, while others hold with Capt. Chaplin and his desire to receive confirmation of the order before the missiles should be launched. One of the individuals that believe in Capt. Marcus is his XO (executive officer) Sam Kendal, played by Scott Speedman without whose cooperation the missiles cannot be launched.

While the crew and officers of the vessel are debating exactly what their next step should be similar missiles launched from another source, detonating over Pakistan. Shortly thereafter Capt. Marcus, and his crew are fired upon, supposedly by the Pakistani military at which point the USS Colorado is damaged by what the crew later finds out (at least Capt. Marcus and the XO) is friendly fire this begins to have an interesting psychological effect on Capt. Marcus, because his son, who is a US Marine was recently killed in a friendly fire incident two weeks prior to the deployment of the USS Colorado.

Capt. Marcus begins to feel betrayed by his government, which he sees as using him and his crew. As part of some elaborate political agenda which leads him to commandeer a small fictitious French island of Sainte Marina which also houses a NATO listening post which consists of communications equipment and missile tracking radar which the captain uses as the backbone of his defense to establish a 200 mile quarantine zone around the island until he can figure out just exactly why the US government would want to sink a submarine containing the latest and greatest piece of stealth technology.

The last resort is an excellent drama that demonstrates just how far a man may be willing to go to protect the people he cares about, and the ideals he believes in anyone and use this program is sure to find it exciting and intriguing.
