SEptember, 2001. On its last leg homeward, from Pearl Harbour (Hawaii) to San Diego, the USS Constellation hosts a jolly 'tiger cruise' for USNavy, Marines and USNAF relatives, mainly minors ('Navy brats'). Attitudes and emotions vary from simple joy to open frustration, the worst brat being XO commander Gary Dolan's daughter Maddie, who wants him to refuse a promotion to command for a shore job. Then the news of the WCC terror crisis changes everything, as the crew is recalled to war footing. Written by
Maddie wanted a father. What she found was a hero.

When the characters are speaking to each other when they are on the deck in the evening, the direction of the water is unrelated to the direction in which the ship is moving. The backrounds onto which the actors are superimposed come from stock footage, and the water's direction changes an impossible 180 degrees between shots. See more
Is the XO your father?
So I guess that makes you a brat.
[Maddie salutes to her father and her father salutes back
Yeah, I'm a brat.
