Trivia

One of the fallacies of this show was when flight ops were taking place, some of the crew members were lounging on the deck of the carrier. This would be insane and dangerous, and it would be forbidden. See more »

The Show As I Knew It
18 May 2016 | by mpartSee all my reviews

Excellent as in excellent to work on. I was story editor on the series, but not the pilot episode. We shot mainly on a stage in Santa Clarita with exteriors at the Long Beach Naval shipyard. The Navy tried to censor most things (sailors gambling, having family lives, drinking in bars, etc), tried to rewrite all the pilot dialogue so no one could understand it and the Navy Guy (An Admiral named Mike) liked to also send jokes over. We had a Navy man as a consultant on set so we could get things right (like funerals at sea) and of course Captain Dale Dye was one of the stars, so he could consult somewhat militarily.

The Navy pulled the plug when we did a show that took place in an unknown country in Central America. We had sold jets to their dictator and his brother, who was getting guns from Cuba, started an uprising against him and they flew our own jets against us. We did 2 more episodes the WGA strike hit and closed us down and when the strike was over 6 months later, we couldn't make it back. There were no bad guys like Saddam back then and the Navy refused to help.
