USS Chicago made a port visit to Sydney, Australia, 28 years ago, during the Vietnam War. It appears that, after an altercation at a waterfront amusement park, a petty officer from that ship was murdered; at the same time a seaman disappeared from the Royal Australian Navy. Recently, however, local authorities apprehended a man believed to be the missing seaman; they book him for the old murder. At Brumby's request Harm and Bud fly to Sydney because the prisoner asks to speak with a JAG officer of the US Navy; the accused tells Harm that he is the US sailor previously believed to be dead. Harm has trouble while driving in left-hand traffic. Mac escorts back to Sydney the body, long buried in the US, of the one believed to be the US sailor. The Australian judicial system takes jurisdiction. While in Sydney, Mac behaves as the Romans do. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

When Bud and Harm arrive in Australia direct from the USA, they exit from the Qantas domestic terminal. This on the opposite side of the Airport from the International terminal with no direct access between the two, also being a domestic terminal. There are no Customs or Immigration facilities there, so it would be highly unlikely that relatively Junior Military Officers would be granted any form of VIP treatment that would enable them to bypass Customs and Immigration.
