Season 1
Episode "Captain"
Stern is a Seaman on the USS Colorado. He remains loyal to the US Navy after the Colorado is declared an enemy vessel. Along with Seaman Lawrence he tries to reveal the position of the boat to the navy. He is stopped by Executive Officer Sam Kendal. He is shot and killed by Lieutenant Grace Shepard when he tries to shoot Kendal.


Stern is reprimanded for making insubordinate remarks about Lieutenant Grace Shepard in earshot of Executive Officer Sam Kendal.

The USS Colorado is declared an enemy of the United States and on the run when they ask for confirmation of an order to fire nuclear weapons on Pakistan that comes from an unusual channel. They take refuge on the island Sainte Marina to regroup. Stern and Lawrence disagree with their commanding officer's actions.

They engineer a sudden blackout in the island's NATO station by shutting down the generator. They contact naval command to report their action and position. Sam discovers what they are doing and confronts them. Stern threatens Sam with a gun. Shepard shoots Stern, killing him before he can fire at Sam. They get the generator on-line in time to recognize a pair of bombers headed towards the island. They are able to counter the threat in time to ward it off.[1]
