Last Resort is an American military drama television series that aired on ABC from 27 September 2012 to 24 January 2013.
The series was created by Shawn Ryan and Karl Gajdusek, and produced by Sony Pictures Television.
Marcus Chaplin is the Captain of the USS Colorado, the most powerful nuclear submarine ever built. When ordered to fire four nuclear missiles at Pakistan, he defies protocol and demands confirmation. Consequently, the USS Illinois fires on the Colorado, and the Colorado bottoms out and is left for dead. As a false flag pretext for war, the US blames Pakistan for the attack, leading to a nuclear strike against Pakistan. The presumed-dead crew of the Colorado take control of the island of Sainte Marina where there is a NATO radar installation. Chaplin threatens to launch his missiles at any country, including the US, that attacks his ship. To prove his resolve, he fires a missile, supposedly targeted at Washington D.C.; in reality, Chaplin had set it to fly over Washington and it detonates above the ocean. Meanwhile, the local despot Serrat kidnaps two of the Colorado’s crew.
