Storyline

In the early 1960's, as a U.S. Navy ship cruises near Guadalcanal in the South Pacific, its sonar detects muted hammering on metal undersea. The eerie sounds emanate from a submarine on the ocean floor, maybe there since World War II. A very nervous crew member (Mike Kellin) on the ship served aboard that sub - and he was its sole survivor. Written by David Stevens

Trivia

The hull number for the sunken submarine, 714, was not actually used by the Navy until the construction began on the USS NORFOLK SSN714 in August of 1979. In the episode, it was mentioned that the submarine was built in 1941. Those built in 1941 had "21x" hull numbers. See more »

Goofs

There is a belief that the rank of captain determines the rank of the medical officer aboard a destroyer. In fact, all destroyers up to an including the latest (2016) Arleigh Burke class destroyers are manned by enlisted hospital corpsman. In the case of the larger Burke class, there are two corpsmen. But the smaller classes that went before, Knox class, Fletcher class, Sherman Class, etc.. All had a single enlisted hospital corpsman aboard. These corps are well trained for six months prior to being deployed. This contrasts with much shorter Army medic training. See more »

Guilty Conscience
3 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Second episode in the newly imposed hour-long format is a prime example of its limitations: Story involves a U.S. Navy destroyer in the South Pacific that makes sonar contact with a long-sunken submarine that seems to have an inexplicable hammering come from inside it. This news greatly troubles Chief Bell(played by Mike Kellin) who it turns out was the sole survivor from that sub back in World War II, but he has a secret that he may literally take to that thirty-fathom grave... Costars Simon Oakland as the Captain, and an early appearance by future star Bill Bixby("The Incredible Hulk") Plot has a great deal of potential, but is hurt by obvious padding like too much exposition about what could be down there. Still, this succeeds as an eerie ghost story, with fine acting, but at 25 minutes, would have been a classic...
