I was watching "The Last Ship" TNT trailer and noticed Adam Baldwin had two short clips in it. Based on these short snippets, it seems Adam just has a minor role as Executive Officer (XO). He's getting old enough to look like a Captain (CO) instead of just one of the flunky officers. Eric Dane has the drama part down, but I'm not sure I can take him seriously as the CO. Adam has more the look of "Get your A' in gear or I'll kick it into next week". http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2402207/fullcredits

I wonder if Adam is avoiding a lead role because of the extra effort required (point made by Nathan Fillion) or he cannot get a director to take a chance with him?

It will be interesting if Adam gets more time on the screen as the show progresses.

Adam has stared in movies, "My Body Guard" and "D.C. Cab", but his best roles were not as the star. (in my opinion) He was Animal Mother in "Full Metal Jacket" and of course Jayne in "Firefly"....I think they made a movie out of it?

These co-star roles are classics.

If the show is anything like the book, the XO is a pretty big part.

Actually, scratch that. I just read the Wiki on the book and the officer I was thinking of wasn't the XO.

But you can't really judge his part based on the trailer.
And just because he is the XO, doesn't mean he won't have a meaty role.

Spock and Riker are basically the Star Fleet equivalent of an XO.

As the third billed star behind Eric Dane (CO) and Rhona Mitra (CDC), his role is not really very minor - particularly with such a large cast.

Adam was a bit memorable in Next of Kin and others, and I thought his turn in Independence Day was one of his most memorable.
