Storyline

A helo ferries the Gibbs team to a Naval research vessel at sea to investigate the death of a lieutenant commander, who was a PhD and a marine biologist; initially the gang encounters no human being; later they find the body of the victim inside the freezer in the galley; the crew and the lifeboats have disappeared. Ducky says that the death resulted from a viral hemorrhagic fever, and that they all have become exposed and may die before the next day. Abby helps Tony with some lab work. Eventually the cook appears, the communication officer does likewise, and visitors arrive. The gang figure it out, so they borrow a boat, and then the ship disappears. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

'Stephen Culp (I)' plays Commander William Skinner. The same actor played the recurring character of CIA Agent / Deputy Director Clayton Webb on JAG (1995), the show on which NCIS originated in Season 8. See more »

Goofs

Not only do the "Russians" have strong accents, but the orders "secure the bridge" and "find Ferris" are given in the wrong grammatical form (infinitive rather than imperative). See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Timothy McGee: [last lines; as the team speeds away from the Chimera in the pirates' motor launch, a cruise missile streaks overhead and destroys the ship] Guess the Navy didn't want anyone to know the ship existed.
Officer Ziva David: How did they know we got off the ship?
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs: I don't think they did.
