The false flag aspect in this new show is when the Sub Commander is speaking with someone in Washington DC and tells him that another US submarine, the Illinois shot them up, and the man in DC tells the commander that the white house said it was the Pakistanis that did it. Kind of like when the Israelis shot up the USS Liberty claiming the boat was of unknown origin to them during the Six-Day War between Israel and several Arab nations. I will add to this by saying current events in the middle-east resemble this scenario in so far as US naval vessels currently ordered to the Mediterranean due to the slaying of the US ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three others.
Last Resort Trailer – Plot
The show is about the renegade crew of a United States Navy Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, the fictional USS Colorado (SSBN-753), that defies an order to launch nuclear missiles towards Pakistan, a decision that costs the commanding officer his job when he refuses to follow out the orders without an explanation or official confirmation. When his second in command also questions the same orders, the vessel is fired upon without warning and the crew are left for dead. Realizing that they have been declared enemies of their own country, they set up camp on the fictional island of Sainte Marina, and declare themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability. At the same time, the crew must find a way to prove their innocence and find out who set them up so that they can return home to America.
