A group of masked men break into the home of an international arms dealer and kidnap his wife. McGarrett soon realizes the case is far more than a simple kidnapping - he's now involved with agents of a foreign civil war.

This story involves people from the foreign country of "Malanesia" (as identified by the sign outside the Counsel's building). There is no actual country with that name. There is a loose collection of islands NE of Australia that includes New Guinea and the Solomons called "Melanesia". This name is for geographical purposes only as the islands themselves are politically independent of each other. See more
McGarrett picks up Cunningham's rifle and misidentifies it as a Dutch made AR-10. Merrill, the gun expert, corrects him by misidentifying it as a prototype to the M15. The gun is neither - it is easily recognizable as being from the AR-15 series of rifles firing the 5.56mm round, either a fully auto M16 or semi-auto AR-15. In the wild guess department, McGarrett was a little closer to the mark where the AR-10 is actually designer Eugene Stoner's precursor to the AR-15, but is larger and heavier as it fires the NATO 7.62mm round. The M15 was a member of the M14 family of traditional wooden stock battle rifles and cannot be confused with the lightweight plastic and aluminum AR-15/M16 even in the dark. See more
