Storyline

The highest CIA spy in Libya has become uncovered, so the CIA sends in Harm and Beth to pick him up aboard a C-130 Hercules; however, the spy shows up with a large number of his relatives; he demands that they too go, so they take them. However, engine trouble and gunfire raise complications; USS Seahawk, an aircraft carrier, is the only landing site near enough; they land without mishap. Meanwhile a seaman in the Navy has converted to the Islamic faith, and he has become accused of taking part in al-Qaeda activities; the testimony of one witness against him raises legal and moral questions. Sturgis and Bud prosecute, Mac defends, and Sturgis and Mac eventually reach a plea deal. Sturgis continues to wrestle with his feelings about the misconduct case about himself.

Trivia

In 1963, a Hercules achieved and still holds the record for the largest and heaviest aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier.[26] During October and November that year, a USMC KC-130F (BuNo 149798), loaned to the U.S. Naval Air Test Center, made 29 touch-and-go landings, 21 unarrested full-stop landings and 21 unassisted take-offs on Forrestal at a number of different weights.[27] The pilot, LT (later RADM) James H. Flatley III, USN, was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his role in this test series. The tests were highly successful, but the idea was considered too risky for routine "Carrier Onboard Delivery" (COD) operations. Instead, the Grumman C-2 Greyhound was developed as a dedicated COD aircraft. The Hercules used in the test, most recently in service with Marine Aerial Refueler Squadron 352 (VMGR-352) until 2005, is now part of the collection of the National Museum of Naval Aviation at NAS Pensacola, Florida.

Goofs

At one point during the hearing Sturgis refers to the defendant, James Westin, as "Mr. Westin"; however, Westin is an enlisted man in paygrade E-3 -- a YNSN -- a seaman striking for the rating of yeoman. The protocol calls for Sturgis to address him as "Seaman Westin" or simply "Westin". It's incorrect to address an enlisted man as "mister". See more »

Turner, roberts and chegwidden have made this legal circus into a farce ... without rabb, the office is in a real turmoil with only mac to keep the even keel ... i think the writers are way beyond the scope and depth of their expertise and make it up as they go ... i think we should have an old time western gun fight between donald p bellisario and stephen j cannell to see who survives the biggest lies
