Tonight’s S.W.A.T. recap begins now – Refresh Page often to get the most current updates!
SWAT begins tonight with a cruise ship is arriving at port; a guard named Jordan is killed when he discovers men stealing several kilos of drugs. A second guard is shot when he hears the call from Jordan, he is able to signal to shore a hijack alert code. Before they are able to get help, the hijackers stop the ship and say if they approach they will toss dead passengers overboard.
At HQ, Christina “Chris” Alonso (Lina Esco) tells Jim Street (Alex Ryssell) to give em hell at the SWAT Academy. He thanks her and hopes that Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson (Shemar Moore) doesn’t give his spot away, while he is gone; before they can say any more Jeff Mumford (Peter Onorati) calls everyone to the ring announcing they have 93 candidates in the Academy for the 1 position in SWAT, so they are the ELITE 8. Rocker (Lou Ferrigno Jr.) and Dominque Luca (Kenny Johnson) tell them it will be super competitive as there is only one spot, so second best isn’t good enough. Hondo tells Chris he just got word that something’s cooking.
On the cruise ship, Conner a passenger feels something doesn’t feel right and goes to retrieve his satellite phone, as all communication from the boat has been cut. Jessica Cortez (Stephanie Sigman) informs Hondo and David “Deacon” Kay (Jay Harrington) of what they know so far from the cruise line; both learning there are about 1200 passengers on board and the security chief is Kevin Weller who is former LAPD. Robert Hicks (Patrick St. Esprit) joins them, saying they have a call from a sat phone from the boat, asking if someone is going to help them. Hondo tells him to hang up and go find Weller. Hondo feels him and Chris can go in the Nemo but they can be the only two who go to the ship undetected.
Victor Tan (David Lim) tells them they are 60 seconds out, as Deacon reviews what their plan is and the layout of the old ship. Hondo jokes about Deacon being a cruise kind of guy. One of the guys orders Captain Barnett (Tom Schanley) to call the harbor for more fuel as they are going back to Mexico, just as Hondo and Chris enter the water. Hicks tells Jessica they might have bought some extra time as they are demanding more fuel to return to Mexico; Jessica worries about how they will react when they realize they can’t refuel.
Luca and Rocker taunt each other about whose team is better. Mumford asks Luca if he is willing to bed a thousand bucks on whose team is going to win. Jim continues to act cocky, but Luca says he got it right for once and tells Devlin he did a great job. Luca walks out to the second station.
Hondo and Chris make contact with Conner who brings them to Kevin Weller; they realize he is wounded. He says they are brothers, Colton (Rob Welsh) and Remy Pope and they work for the ship; they ask Conner to give them some clothes and a bag. Hondo wants to know why Chris is so cynical about romance; Hondo says this job makes it tough for romance but not impossible. Jessica guides them to the stairs which...Source: www.celebdirtylaundry.com
Columbia-Class Program Must Navigate Sea of Risks - National Defense Magazine
National Defense provides authoritative, non-partisan coverage of business and technology trends in defense and homeland security. A highly regarded news source for defense professionals in government and industry, National Defense offers insight and analysis on defense programs, policy, business, science and technology. Special reports by expert journalists focus on defense budgets, military tactics, doctrine and strategy.
The Navy’s program to build a new ballistic missile submarine that would remain on patrol until the 2080s faces a number of hurdles, raising concerns among service officials and analysts that the first boat might not be ready on time.
The Columbia-class is the Navy’s No. 1 acquisition priority as it seeks to replace aging Ohio-class platforms, which are slated to begin reaching the end of their service lives in the early 2030s.
The Navy plans to procure the first of 12 boats in fiscal year 2021, and have the lead ship on patrol by 2031. General Dynamics Electric Boat is the prime contractor for the initiative.
The effort is currently on track, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said at a conference in September. But he has concerns.
“I said on track and that’s true, but it is [just] right on track … and so we need to find some margin in that program, some margin in schedule in particular,” he said.
“In a program of this complexity it’s just a fact of life that there are going to be things that will surprise us going forward, and so we need to … build in enough margin to accommodate those surprises,” he added.
The Columbia will include new technologies not found on previous boats. Traditional submarines use steam turbines, but the next-generation will have a stealthier all-electric propulsion system.
“That’s the element of the ship that is the most untested,” said Bryan Clark, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments and a former Navy submarine officer. “It’s mostly new engineering that has to be done in order to facilitate that.”
The Columbia is also expected to be equipped with a life-of-the-ship nuclear reactor, which will eliminate the need for midlife refueling.
“There is a little bit of technical risk,” said Clark, who previously served as chief engineer and operations officer with the Navy’s nuclear power training unit. “Life-of-the-ship cores is what the Virginia-class has, but that’s a 30-year ship, and here we’re talking about a ship that’s supposed to last up to 50 years.”
The reactor technology is well understood, he added. But “the area where the risk lies is primarily on how those [shipboard] materials behave in an environment where they’re getting exposed to radiation for a longer period of time.”
Adm. James Caldwell Jr., director of the naval nuclear propulsion program, said the service will start buying reactor plant heavy components this year.
There is margin in the schedule to accommodate manufacturing and delivery challenges, he told National Defense at a recent conference, but “we have to work hard at it.”
Some technologies and manufacturing techniques that will be used on the new boat will first be incorporated on attack submarines, but the Columbia will be a much larger platform.
“It’s two-and-a-half-times the size of a Virginia-class submarine,” Caldwell noted. “That is an enormous project.”
The industrial base for nuclear reactors is small with a limited number of vendors making critical components for the Navy. Industry is capable of meeting military requirements, “but it takes a lot of energy to sustain that,” Caldwell said during a panel discussion at the conference.
Michael Wallace, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the commercial nuclear power industry is hurting. That’s bad news for the Navy.... Source: www.nationaldefensemagazine.org

The Naval Forces Western Mindanao (NavForWem) has activated the Naval Station Rio Hondo in Zamboanga City on Tuesday as part of the ongoing capability upgrade and modernization of the Philippine Navy (PN).
Naval Station Rio Hondo was built to guard the city after the infamous Zamboanga City siege on Sept. 9, 2013.
The newly-activated Naval Station will be manned by various Fleet-Marine operating units such as Naval Special Operations Unit 1 (NAVSOU 1), Combat Service Support Brigade (CSSBde), Inshore Boat Battalion (IBBN), Naval Air Unit-Western Mindanao (NAU-WM) and elements from Marine Battalion Landing Team 1, Naval Task Force 61, and Naval Forces Western Mindanao Headquarters Support Group.
Gracing the activation ceremony were Rear Admiral Rommel Jude G. Ong, PN vice commander who represented Navy Chief Robert A Empedrad, as the honored guest and speaker, and Zamboanga City Mayor Maria Isabelle “Bong” Climaco-Salazar.
The event was also attended by Barangay Captain Jinnul A. Malik of Rio Hondo; officers and men of the NavForWem; and partner-stakeholders.
The project activate the naval station was the result of the city’s efforts to maintain peace and security following the siege where hundreds of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) rebels came into the city and infiltrated several coastal villages in the attempt to hoist their flag in the city’s seat of government, the Zamboanga City Hall.
“This is our home and we have an obligation to ensure that never again will it succumb to those who are trying to assert the greed and malice in our place,” said Rear Adm. Rene V. Medina, NavForWem commander.
“Let this activation sow the seeds of peace and prosperity in our beloved city as it brings back the confidence of the people and ensuring that your Navy and AFP as a whole would always be in the forefront to warrant their safety and well-being,” Medina added.Source: news.mb.com.ph
