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

Did You Know?

Trivia

The Chimera ship is in fact SS Lane Victory. When Gibbs and Dr. Mallard first go inside the ship you can see near the door a sign with "KECW". That's an alias for the ship SS Lane Victory. They even show a picture with the ship having additional lights for this episode, on their site lanevictory.org. The same ship was used to film scenes from Flags of Our Fathers (2006). 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 »
