While awaiting the conversion of an aircraft carrier of the US Navy into a museum ship, inspectors discover the skeleton of an aviator lieutenant inside a previously sealed void compartment. Harm and Mac investigate in Alameda; Bud and Harriet research in Washington and continue to check out each other. Harm has some unusual experiences aboard the ship, and Mac strikes up a friendship with a local detective. The inspectors appear to have sought something other than rust. Harm finds an important book, which contains a clue about the whereabouts of his father. The local detective turns out to be someone else instead, and the book disappears. Webb lends a hand and says something nice. Written by DocRushing

On 17 October 1998 USS Hornet (CVS-12) opened as a museum ship in Alameda, California. She appears on the National Register of Historic Places; she's also both a National Historic Landmark and a California Historical Landmark. See more »


Adm. Chegwidden states that a body was found in a void and Mac replies, "Void? " Harm tells her that a void is an empty space between the double hulls. A void is actually any compartment or space that has no designated function. The "address" of any such space ends with the letter "V." See more »


Lt. Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Admiral, the void is sealed during construction. How would a body get in there?
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.: Well, the same way as it did on the Great Eastern, sir.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Enlighten us, Mr. Roberts.
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.: She was a double-hulled ship, too, sir. While she was under construction, a shipyard worker fell asleep in the void and was accidentally sealed inside. They said you could hear him pounding for years!
Maj. Sarah 'Mac' MacKenzie: [skeptically] Years, Bud?
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.: Well, obviously it was his ghost, ma'am.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Obviously!
