The crew aboard the USS Elmira are working on a project, code named Operation Honeymoon. At the operation's core is the testing of the Magnetic Analyzer Computing Synchrotron, or MACS for short, which is a smart computer designed to do among other things determine where missiles are going to land. Civilian Jason Eldridge is the scientific mastermind aboard in charge of MACS' operation. His friend aboard, Lieutenant Ferguson Howard, sees other possible uses for MACS. He wants to know if MACS, if given the proper data, can accurately predict games of chance, such as those found in casinos. After discussing the situation, Fergie and Jason decide the game which MACS can predict the most accurately is roulette. They decide to test MACS' abilities, and possibly get rich, at their next port of call where there is a casino, namely Venice. They plan on using a system of Morse Code light signals from the ship to shore to transmit the information. Although they go ahead with their plan, they are...Written by
The "Elmira" is the guided missile cruiser USS Providence (CLG-6). Footage of the ship was taken while it was at its home port of Long Beach, California. Originally built as a light cruiser for WWII, she was commissioned in May, 1945. She was decommissioned and put into reserve in June, 1949. She was converted to a guided missile cruiser and recommissioned in September, 1959 with only one of its four triple six-inch gun turrets remaining. She was decommissioned again in August 1973 and scrapped in 1980. In one shot of the USS Providence, the USS Lyman K. Swenson (DD-729) can be seen to the left. See more »
When Fergie and Jason are plugging in the power supply for the blinker in the Venice hotel, Jason says "110 volts in, 24 volts out". All European countries use 240 volts, not 110 volts as in the USA. See more »
The fact that I am the first to even comment on this piece of trash is indicative of the fact that it should be ignored...not destroyed but ignored. Jack Weston, as the drunken sailor, is the only funny bright spot in this silly unrealistic boring piece of trivia.
After the first few shots of a space shuttle flight, it's all downhill, as McQueen bullies the scientist, Hutton (that should warn you right there) and a fellow officer into a plot to use the onboard computer (Mac) to beat the roulette wheel. The girl thing is equally silly as he meets and marries in one day the daughter of the admiral. No more space needed on this one.
