By using a CoD flight from Kosovo, a petty officer smuggles a pregnant Albanian woman aboard Harm's carrier. The CAG talks with Harm about his career prospects. Skates feels her mortality, but she concludes that she can survive anything if she can survive Harm's stunts. Harm does some good flying, and he helps a newbie JAG officer in the defense of the smuggler; he interrupts closing arguments; the CAG expresses approval of his performance and his fervor for justice and the law, then he nudges him back toward the JAG Corps. The gunny starts his new duties at the JAG office, and that causes new competitiveness to arise among other staff members. Written by DocRushing

The time teletyped at the beginning of many scenes is given in Zulu, which is military (24-hour) time in Greenwich Mean Time (London time). The show's writers usually do a good job of translating from Zulu into the correct local time zone, but sometimes they slip up. For example, in the episode "True Callings" there is a night flying scene over Bosnia. The listed time is 1107 Zulu. Bosnian local time is one hour later than Zulu, so 1107 Zulu equals 1207 local time. That is seven minutes after noon. Seven minutes after midnight in Bosnia would be 2307 Zulu time. In another episode, "Legacy" (2 parts), one scene begins in Chechnya at 1829 Zulu. Chechnya is three time zones east of London , so it was 2129 local, or 9:29 in the evening. The exact date is not given, but even in mid-summer the sun would have set by that time, yet the scene takes place in broad daylight. See more »
