Storyline

President Henry McNeil has fallen and seriously injured his head. That imperils an upcoming peace conference; even a whiff of the president's incapacity may doom it, as he is the one man who can hold it together. Everything depends on a delicate operation to relieve the swelling in his brain. To keep that operation a secret, the Navy co-opts the Seaview. But enemies of the conference have learned of the president's ill health, and manage to smuggle an agent aboard Seaview with orders to kill McNeil! Written by CommanderBalok

Trivia

The title makes reference to the march "Hail to the Chief" which announces the entrance of the President of the United States at public appearances and is preceded by four ruffles and flourishes. The march is often played by the United States Marine Band and has been used officially by the Department of Defense since 1954. See more »

Play Spot The Known Guest Star?
29 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Seaview must transport the sick President (aka Chief).

There is no question that this hour is loaded with known male and female guest stars, but you can play guest-star-watch with many TV shows of this period, it takes more than that to make a really good Voyage hour.

Seaman Kowalski (Del Monroe) gets more to do than usual, which is a help to any Voyage hour, but there is a lack of suspense in the episode which makes me call it average-to-good but not great.

The footage of Clark repairing the damaged Seaview would all be reused in the third season hour titled: No Escape From Death.

If you get a bit bored by Hail To The Chief at least you have a funny line from Nelson, in the last seconds of the show, to look forward to.
