In a port in the Persian Gulf a service boat approaches a destroyer of the US Navy alongside a pier. A USN security team in a patrol boat intercept the intruding boat, subdue two terrorists, board the boat, and discover explosives and a woman sergeant in the US Marine Corps. Harm and Mac investigate, and the sergeant comes under suspicion and before a hearing. Mac prosecutes, and Harm defends. Webb arrives from the CIA with news, which interrupts the proceeding. During a recess the suspect volunteers to do a chore for the CIA. Mac and Mic have set the date for their wedding. While Harm and Mac are abroad, Bud and Mic share guy talk over beer, and Harriet and Renee share girl talk over wine. Written by
