A Japanese man accuses a US Naval officer (from a visiting aircraft carrier) of raping his teenage daughter. Harm, Mac, and Bud investigate; a rear admiral applies political pressure. The Japanese authorities indict the defendant, an ensign, take him into custody, and conduct a trial, which goes poorly; it goes even worse after the prosecutor catches the ensign in a lie. The Japanese court refuses to allow a US lawyer to defend him, and it provides a Japanese one who's not well qualified for a criminal defense. A major event sends the JAG himself to Japan. Eventually Harm takes part in a conversation which persuades a witness to step forward and explain what happened. Written by DocRushing

In order to do this, they are sent to the printer very near the end of the cruise so that they are ready when the ship returns home. See more »
