Ten years ago an explosion took place inside a gun turret aboard a battleship of the US Navy. Now some of the students at a nearby naval high-school academy conduct a mock trial to prosecute a sailor for the resulting deaths. The admiral sends Harm and Mac to advise the students -- Harm on the prosecution, Mac on the defense. The students continue to investigate, and, with some help from Harm, Mac, Bud, and the gunny, they discover a material witness who was never interviewed during the official investigation; the witness belatedly provides enlightening testimony. Meanwhile an outside group tries to shoot a recruiting commercial. Written by DocRushing

Admiral Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Hmm... Oh, uh, almost forgot. Commander can you be at the Washington Momument at 1700?
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb Jr.: The Washington Momument at 1700, sir? Why?
Admiral Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: I think she called it the magic hour. Ms Peterson, she says the light is just perfect.
