The first season of the Australian drama series Sea Patrol premiered on the Nine Network on 05 July 2007. The 13-episode season concluded 04 October 2007. Set aboard HMAS Hammersley, an old Royal Australian Navy (RAN) patrol boat, the series follows the ship’s company as they investigate the deaths of several people, who are linked by a web of intrigue.
It’s Hammersley’s last ever mission before she is retired. The crew risks life and ship to hunt down the rogue terrorist boat, Pacific Mariner, and retrieve or destroy its cargo of bottled water containing the biotoxin.
Mike is forced to make the most difficult decision of his career when he orders his crew to open fire on the rogue ship, knowing Ursula is being held hostage on board.
It is an emotional time for the crew as the Navy officially decommissions the long-serving HMAS Hammersley. ET transfers to a frigate, so he and Nikki can finally pursue their relationship. Kate accepts Mike’s offer to remain his 2IC on the new and improved patrol boat.
Guest actors: Lee Adamson, Nik Schodel, Shea Adams, Pete Hill, Yvonne Strahovski.
