Episode Summary

EDIT
Genesis
AIRED:
Major Matthew Quentin Shepherd is forced to retire from the army after disobeying an order from his superior officers to abandon his men in Bosnia, and is left wondering what to do with the rest of his life. But before he settles into life as a civilian, he's recruited by an old friend and colleague. He asks Matt form a team of mercenaries able to complete missions that need to be kept secret, deniable and on occasion, extralegall.

Shepherd agrees as long as he can pick his own team of operatives. He gathers together a unit of old friends and allies, people he knows he can trust when the chips are down.

In their first mission, their job is to rescue four US servicemen who were shot down and captured by the Iraqi military.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • GOOF: The team supposedly is just a few miles north of al-Basrah, but they are in desert terrain. North and east of al-Basrah is the Tigris River, which is lined by vegetation. The terrain should be a mixture of desert and river bottom land.

      • Trout was formerly a Colonel in the US Armed Forces, but is now a civilian, like Shepherd.

      • Matt wears a POW/MIA bracelet for Quentin M. Shepherd, 1-5-69. This is presumably Matt's father, since his own name is Matthew Quentin Shepherd.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Matt: Am I going to regret this?
        Trout: You'll regret not doing this.

      • Trout: Bottom line, I need a seasoned operator, and you're my number one candidate.
        Matt: Thanks, but no thanks, I'm no bounty hunter.
        Trout: I can make it worth your while.
        Matt: See, now that sounds like a price instead of a reason.

      • Trout: Nice work, you delivered the goods.
        Matt: (referring to his team's casualties) And we paid for them, too.

      • CJ: (when they are forced to go with the back-up plan) Who was it said, 'Never go out the way you come in?!'
        Margo: General Custer...

      • Gunter: Earplugs?
        Benny Ray: No thanks.
        Gunter: This night will get very noisy.
        Benny Ray: I like to hear my targets fall.

      • Rico: Can we trust this guy?
        Tariq: I will do whatever it takes to get my family to the States.
        Rico: (sarcastically) I don't believe anyone would want to give up Baghdad in the summer.

      • Shepherd: (after being forced to resign his commission) Since when do you salute a civilian?
        Sergeant: Time we honored the man, not the uniform. (Shepherd returns his salute)
