While a team of Marines aboard a helicopter gunship has a task to protect a relief convoy during a UN peacekeeping program, the Marine captain in charge exceeds the written rules of engagement by directing the pilot to land and his team to seek to capture the leader of a group of rebel combatants. Six of the Marines then die in an ambush. Sturgis prosecutes the captain for dereliction of duty and negligent homicide. Harm and Bud defend him, who says that he has followed an oral "suggestion" from his colonel. Harm ruffles the feathers of Bobbi by issuing a subpoena for her and by calling her to the stand. Meanwhile Mac investigates a case of an unlikely high-tech peeping tom. Written by DocRushing
