RAdm. Chegwidden receives a surprise visit at his home by a guest, who is not entirely welcome; however, he helps to work things out. While Mac and Gunny continue with their temporary assignment aboard USS Guadalcanal, an amphibious assault ship, a Marine officer dies when two rubber boats capsize in heavy surf during a landing exercise. The commanding officer of the ship orders a shipboard special court-martial for another Marine officer, a major, who directed the start of the exercise during heavy weather. Mac investigates and prosecutes. Without prior announcement Harm arrives to defend the major, but the defendant hires a civilian lawyer to take charge of his defense. Predictably, friction occurs between Harm and the outside mouthpiece; still, though, Harm discovers the cause of the overturning. Harm finds an answer to a question from Mac, but he does not get an opportunity to give it to her. Written by DocRushing

The mother of the teenager is the commanding officer aboard the fictional USS Akron (AOR-8), a replenishment oiler (tanker), used for underway replenishment ("unrep") of other ships. The real USS Akron was ZRS-4, a helium-filled rigid airship, which served from 1931 until 1933, when it crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New Jersey. No ship of the US Navy has borne the hull number AOR-8. The highest numbered such ship is USS Roanoke (AOR-7), of the Wichita class, serving 1976-95. See more »
