The Last Ship is an American post-apocalyptic drama tv series based on the novel of the same name by William Brinkley. Published in May 2013.
The cable network TNT initially placed an order for 10 episodes, it now spans 3 seasons.
U.S.A Navel Commander Tom Chandler and his crew find themselves in a whole new world when the ship's scientist passenger, Dr. Rachel Scott reveals that while they have been in radio silence for the last four months on a training exercise in the Antarctic the entire of earth's population is either fighting a virus or have been killed from it.
The crew and their trusty ship "USS Nathan James DDG-151" set sail from Antarctica in search of fuel and supplies while the dr attempts to compare the viral strains and come up with a cure, meanwhile the crew grow more and more suspicious with the lack of information being told to them by the higher ranking officers.
They do venture off the ship at a mixture of harbour ports, docks and islands in search for supplies and later on in search for monkeys to try test vaccines on. But with an adaptive virus its harder to combat when its constantly evolving into a much deadlier pathogen that it first started out as.
The mini intro is a bit lame and seams to hide a bigger picture, which makes me wonder of at some stage it will divert its self to another group of survivors on land (splitting the stories between two lots of cast) But it would allow for flashbacks. A plot is certainly building with its spy on board the american ship, while the russian ship seams to have a mysterious dr who could be the cause.
For actress Rhona Mitra as Dr. Rachel Scott, a paleomicrobiologist. This isn't her first acting role within a Viral Outbreak disaster and many of you may remember her from "Doomsday" from 2012. Featuring an outbreak in Scotland and a wall built to keep the infected out of England
