    Both a fishing trawler and a floating factory, the Northern Eagle is able to catch, fillet, and freeze up to 160 tons of fish a day. But before the most advanced ship in North America can begin that process, she must first find the fish. Set sail on the bitter and brutal Bering Sea as this ship and her crew embark on the most important fishing trip of the year, at the height of spawning season. The chance for reward is great and so is the risk of failure. Her 140-man crew is paid by the value of her haul and all eyes are on the captain to land the big catch.moreless

    The USS New York is built out of the ashes of 9/11. From the steel in her bow to her motto, "Never Forget," this warship honors the victims of the worst attack on American soil. Designed to be the most advanced amphibious warships on the planet, she needs to prove herself before her first deployment.

  • Neptune

    Full Episode

    S 1 : Ep 5 - 1/20/13

    Neptune is a ship out of water...fifty feet out of water. Custom-built to raise herself high off the ocean surface, this jack-up vessel has only one job to do: assemble wind turbines in rough seas. Join this brand-new ship off the Belgian Coast, where she will transport and install 30 massive turbines. It's a job that will take everything this mighty ship has to offer, because what makes this location the perfect place to operate a wind farm also makes it the worst place for a ship to build one.moreless
