Continuity 

The crewmembers of the US frigate wear baseball caps showing the name USS Monroe Smith and the hull number FFG-63. However, a plaque mounted at the ship's bell shows the same name but the hull number FFG-62.

Factual errors 

At the end of the final conversation, as the recently relieved skipper turns and walks away toward his home and his retirement, the boatswain's mate of the watch announces "captain departing". The correct and traditional call should be "commander, United States Navy, departing". Besides, the boatswain's mate should have made his call as the former skipper stepped over the side of the ship, not as he, already ashore, stepped away from the outboard end of the brow. While Cdr. Merrick was still the CO, he was properly addressed and described as "captain" despite his rank, and the calls of the boatswain's mate, using the name of the command, would be "Monroe Smith arriving" or "Monroe Smith departing" as the skipper stepped aboard or ashore. Again, though, in the circumstances here the correct call should be "commander, United States Navy, departing".
