Bud's explanation of the deck numbering system was in error. The uppermost full deck on a ship is the main deck. Going down, the decks are numbered 2, 3, 4, etc, with 2nd deck being the next deck below the main deck. Going up, the decks are number 01, 02, 03, etc., and are pronounced oh-one, oh-two, oh-three. They are called levels. On a carrier, although the flight deck is the uppermost full deck, it is the hangar deck that is the main deck. The flight deck is at the 04 level. The levels continue up through the island to approximately the oh-eleven level. The navigation bridge, where the Captain's chair is, is at the oh-seven level. See more »


Commander Alison Krennick: [about Rabb] NCIS is demanding to have him removed from the investigation.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Demanding?
Commander Alison Krennick: Yes, sir. Specifically, the investigator on board the Seahawk. An agent "Turkey".
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: "Turkey"? You're kidding me.
Commander Alison Krennick: No, sir.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: [laughing] And I thought "Chegwidden" was bad.
Commander Alison Krennick: He's demanding that Lieutenant Commander Rabb be removed from the investigation, sir.
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Nobody pulls a JAG officer off an investigation except me or God, and He hasn't asked.

Skeleton Crew
30 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As an ex-military flyer, I am a big admirer of JAG - not just for the flying scenes, but the high drama and cast characterisations. Real drama! I never watched the original show; my viewing has been via the History Channel reruns, and the first 3-season DVDs.

Like a previous reviewer, I'm really p**ssed that the closing part of the Skeleton Crew episode was missing, and curious as to its history. What happened to Meg (loved her character!)and Commander Krennick? As things stand now, there's no closure on these important characters.

The big question is: Was the second part EVER filmed? I've checked news headlines, and the DVD commentary, but no clues are given. If it wasn't, which would seem to be the case, what was the public reaction to the "missing ending"?
