Enter the high-stakes world of a nuclear aircraft carrier as we meet the crew of the USS Nimitz.

Over 5,000 marines and sailors call the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Nimitz home. At sea for many months at a time on high-risk missions, these men and women must live together day in and day out. But how does a ship with a population the size of a small town function? This 10-part series follows the crew as they give us an inside look into how they deal with their day-to-day lives, relationships, jobs, faith and the risks they face aboard a nuclear aircraft carrier.
