The Navy has recently located the fictional USS Dolphin, a submarine which, according to this story, the Japanese sank on 05 December 1941, while the Japanese battle fleet was en route to attack Pearl Harbor; a civilian salvage operator has since announced his intent to claim, seize, and recover the sunken boat. The admiral, representing the USA, takes part in the legal wrangling, and he visits the salvage vessel and watches some of the activities. Respect and decency eventually triumph over commercial profits. Meanwhile Harm works on the annual budget, and Bud tries to help an overweight petty officer to overcome his physical problem; Mac, the prosecutor, too lends a helping hand. Written by DocRushing
