Behind the scenes
Season 1
Episode "Captain"
A National Command Officer talks to Captain Marcus Chaplin about the fire order received by the USS Colorado.


The USS Colorado receives an incoming fire order. Captain Marcus Chaplin authenticates the order but is dubious of it's origin; rather than coming from Washington it was sent via Antartica, a route that is only supposed to be used if Washington is compromised. As they prepare to fire, Executive Officer Sam Kendal suggests that they check the situation and they are surprised to find American television broadcasting as normal. Chaplin radios Washington for confirmation of the order. He speaks to the National Command Officer before asking for someone more senior. He is put on with Deputy Secretary of Defense William Curry.[1]
