A woman radar-intercept officer (RIO) disappears at night from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea. Two lawyers in the JAG Corps of the US Navy, Lt. Harm Rabb and Lt. Caitlin "Kate" Pike, investigate. Two Italian fishermen discover the body of the missing person. Despite resentment and resistance from several sources, Harm and Kate sort through the evidence, and they find the answers. Harm, a former Naval aviator, gets a ride in the back seat in combat aboard an F-14 Tomcat, of the type which he previously flew; while doing so, after the bird sustains damage, and the pilot loses consciousness, Harm flies back to the carrier and makes a successful landing at night.

A wonderful series
18 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am very saddened that JAG has come to an end it really breaks my heart.Why didn't they just CBS just pay David what he wanted in salary and be done with and let the show go on.They are going to be the losers not DJE for him and Bell were a great team to gather the best in the business as for as i am concerned.I know a lot of fans of JAG feel the same i do about this and maybe if enough of people respond that that maybe CBS will have have second thoughts on this.It is a good thing that CBS decided to air another series related to JAG called NCIS as this also a great and wonderful series that relates to navy and the military.It features some wonderful actors also.
