The Last Ship

Series Summary
At the helm of the USS Nathan James en route to the Arctic, Capt. Tom Chandler learns that the destroyer will be in the best possible place -- a circumstance his crew must utilize -- to save humanity from extinction. A virus has wiped out more than half the population since the ship embarked, and despite orders from the U.S. government to return, Chandler -- believing home is now a shadow of itself -- decides the safest place to develop a vaccine is at sea. That task falls mainly to virologist Dr. Rachel Scott, a civilian originally assigned to the Nathan James to study birds. "The Last Ship" is based on a novel by William Brinkley and is executive-produced by filmmaker Michael Bay ("Transformers").

Critic Reviews( 3 )
  • It looks great but the plotting of the premiere, in which the world falls victim to a horrendous virus and a battleship that has avoided infection could be the only way to find a cure, is stale and manipulative. Square-jawed Dane has the charisma to carry the concept but it’s handled with all the subtlety of a lead balloon. Show More

  • The Last Ship aims for a big-canvas feel, but based on the first three episodes, the one-dimensional characters and action movie cliché dialogue ("Guys, let's do this thing!") make it feel cramped. Show More

  • The result is an efficient slice of military-hardware porn. [20 Jun 2014, p.60] Show More
