Storyline

A major player in the private-sector aerospace industry, Drewett, whose firm operates under contract to the US Department of Defense (DoD), dies inside a test chamber at his facility in Palmdale, California, near Los Angeles; Callen and company investigate, in part to determine the security of US military (DoD) technology. Eric goes undercover as an FAA inspector; G, Sam, Kensi, and Deeks, taking a more direct approach, meet Drewett's business partner, Holt, and Drewett's daughter, Ariel, who suspects murder and gives a name; Holt stalls, argues, and resists; Eric does nicely in his assignment but runs into a big problem. Later everyone in the field watches a big bang; the team find Holt's body, then they go to a flea market in Saugus, between Palmdale and Los Angeles, where they not only watch a transaction but also grab and detain all the participants in it. All the pieces fit together. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

When the rocket explodes, the sound is heard at the launch site at the same time as the explosion is seen. As the vehicle is several miles up already, the sound should arrive with a noticeable delay, revealing it is a sound effect. See more »

Quotes

Nell Jones: Space technology is a pretty specialized field. I mean, you really need someone who speaks their language to get them to open up.
Eric Beal: Someone with the power to shut them down wouldn't hurt either. An FAA inspection wouldn't be out of place considering the circumstances.
Nell Jones: Yeah, but the question is who? I mean, there's a lot to learn, and not enough time.
Eric Beal: [Long pause. Nell looks at Eric] Why are you looking at me like that?
Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: Mr. Beal, I think it's time for you to take a little field trip.
Eric Beal: A field trip?
