A civilian boat violates an exclusion zone while directly approaching an Iraqi offshore oil terminal; it disobeys an order to stop; a US helo fires across the bow, then it disables the rudder; the Iraqi government protests; Harm investigates. While in the Persian Gulf, Harm also does his carrier quals in the F-18 Hornet; while doing so he intercepts a small civilian aircraft on a collision course with an oil rig, and he destroys the bird; unpleasant consequences follow, but it all works out. A Marine gunnery sergeant has commandeered an Iraqi civilian SUV at gunpoint; the owner of the SUV is the son of an Iraqi official who is a friend of the general; that too works out. A new JAG officer joins the gang, Mac quickly forms a dislike toward him, and the dislike increases. Written by

Cmdr. Turner theorizes that the Cessna was on autopilot and returned to it programmed destination after Harm tipped it off course. The autopilots on small planes is not programmed for a destination but for a set course. If it had been on autopilot and resumed its course, it would have been flying a course that would have missed the oil terminal. See more
