6 November 2008 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

The trivia section for this episode of NCIS erroneously states that the radio operators on the Titanic were the first to use the Morse code "SOS" signal after the ship struck an iceberg in 1912. (A character in the episode discusses the switch from "CQD" to "SOS.") The fact of the matter is that "SOS" was used as early as 1909. Titanic's crew were not the first, contrary to popular belief. On June 11,1909, the SS Slavonia wrecked at Flores, in the Azores, without loss of life. The passengers were taken off by the steamships PRINZESS IRENE (Norddeutscher Lloyd) and BATAVIA (Hamburg-America Line). This incident is the first documented use of an "SOS" signal.
