Very weak episode

Spoiler here.

I love JAG, but this episode is a stinker apart from the subplot about Harriet's weird pregnancy behavior and how it affects the admiral. Harm and MacKenzie investigate after an F-14 pilot doesn't pull the trigger when he has an enemy plane in his sights. The pilot claims to have heard a disembodied voice saying "Don't fire." Harm and this pilot take two F-14s aloft to try to "re-create" the mission on which the incident occurred. That would normally be the point where the explanation for the heretofore inexplicable occurrence appears. But instead we are treated to (and here is the spoiler) contaminated oxygen causing the suspect pilot and his back-seater to remove their oxygen masks and fall unconscious due to lack of oxygen. This right after maneuvering to intercept imagined Klingons (seriously) on account hallucinations brought on by hypoxia. Nevertheless, the autopilot has somehow been engaged by the time pilot and RIO are unconscious. That sets the scene for Rabb to do some skillful flying to disengage the autopilot and save the lives of the unconscious men (who recover consciousness at lower altitude). So they return to the carrier, and everyone seems to feel that the problem has been solved. But it hasn't. Rabb even says the oxygen must have been fine on the original mission, and the voice the pilot heard remains a mystery. Hard to believe the Navy would be happy with that ending. It still has a pilot who might not shoot when necessary on account of another "voice."
