This series was filmed on the Nimitz from May to November 2005 a total of over 2,000 hours of footage. The show was taped while the carrier was on a 6-month deployment to the Persian Gulf. Three of the 6 months the Navy was deployed included 3 months of combat support for our U.S. ground troops.

The series will cover the whole gambit of navy life from the deployment where the sailors say goodbye to their families, their faith, their patriotism, their love, their honor, the rites of passage and the war on terror itself.
