Lt. Cmdr. Tom Dodge is assigned as Captain to the USS Stingray, an old diesel driven submarine that has seen better days. With a crew that consists only of weird guys (and a gal), he's headed against the atomic powered USS Orlando, with the mission to destroy a dummy battleship. Written by

In the scene towards the end where Lt. Lake enters LC Dodge's cabin and kisses him, Lauren Holly
hits her elbow backing out the doorway. This was unintentional and Kelsey Grammer

In one of the scenes, the Executive Officer calls LCDR Dodge "Commander". While the "Lieutenant" modifier is often omitted from lieutenant commander (or lieutenant colonel, for that matter), this is considered insulting in context, as LCDR Dodge was the Commanding Officer (CO) of the Boat, his correct title would have been "Skipper" or "Captain".
