Pirates have seized a Burmese civilian freighter in Indonesian territorial waters; USS Condon (ARS-54), a salvage vessel, has responded to a prior Mayday call from that ship; the general sends Mac and Greg, the new lawyer, to negotiate. Greg arranges for the pirates to send the ship's crew to the Naval ship; when those "crewmembers" arrive, they suddenly reveal that they are the pirates, and that they have killed the crew of the freighter; the pirates draw their own weapons, take hostages, and begin to try to seize the US ship; the US crew quickly regains control. However, two ships of the Indonesian Navy arrive and try to detain the US ship and obtain the leader of the pirates; then high-level bargaining takes place. The problem reignites aboard the freighter, but Mac and Greg take care of it. Meanwhile Bud and Harriet host a party to celebrate the birth of their twins; there Mike meets the general's daughter, who is a plebe at Annapolis and is a handful. Written by DocRushing
