Storyline

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.

Trivia

One of the seaborne locations that the JAG teams frequent is the "USS Seahawk". The United States Navy has never had a ship bearing the name "Seahawk". The "USS Seahawk" is portrayed in the series by CVN-65, the USS Enterprise. See more »

Goofs

In the episode's climax Lt. Rabb elects to fly in the backseat as RIO (Radio Intercept Officer) for the CAG on an important mission, however he is no longer flight certified and would be ineligible to fly. Further the CAG suffers an injury and Rabb flies the aircraft back to the ship. This is impossible as the F-14 does not have flight controls in the rear seat. See more »

Excellent show
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David James Elliot and Catherine Bell make a wonderful duo through the entire running of JAG. Their constant banter and bickering, their obvious chemistry, and the shaded romance add to the underlay of the show, adding just another twist and avenue to be considered while watching the show.

Since the beginning of JAG, the naval court cases and the plots have always been exceptional. The screen writers seemed to be very knowledgeable and versed in law, especially naval law, and understand the workings of the military and crime investigations. Each episode builds with suspense and there is seldom a dull moment. It integrates the real-life scenarios of war, of the characters, and of hardships that they face together in a wonderful blend. There's often comedy and often drama, but they both work together nicely and they're not overdone.

Overall, I give the entire run of the series 9 stars out of 10. The series finale was very emotional and very touching, and after a 10 year run, the family bonds that the cast made with each other were evident, especially in the bar scene during the last 15 minutes. Very outstanding conclusion.
