The Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoided falling victim to the devastating tragedy, but now the crew must confront that they may be among the few remaining survivors.

***** This contains spoilers. ***** In essence my rant is this: The story in the program has no relationship to the book at all. Now that is a little too cut and dried you might say.

I do understand. Fans of TNT’s The Last Ship may have been surprised by the final moments of Sunday’s series-ending finale episode, when fate was kind enough to snatch Admiral Tom Chandler from going down at the last minute with his beloved USS Nathan James.
