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

The nature of the USNS Chimera bears a strong resemblance to the real life USNS Glomar Explorer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glomar_Explorer). Both ships were operating under the cover of a civilian ship, and both ships true missions were the covert retrieval of Soviet/Russian nuclear weapons on the ocean floor. See more »

Goofs

Ducky refers to the Russians as "Soviet state-sponsored pirates." The Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1992. See more »
