Everyone has returned from the tribunal at sea in the previous episode. Capt. Sebring, a military judge, stands accused of vehicular homicide, allegedly as a result of an instance of road rage. The other driver is a single mother whose baby dies. Mac and Sturgis prosecute, Harm defends, and the admiral appears as a witness. The defendant hurts his case by his behavior in the courtroom due to problems at home with his wife and their son. Harm eventually discovers the real cause of the wreck. Meanwhile Webb continues to pursue a leader among the terrorists of Al Qaeda, and Loren continues to promote trouble between Bud and Harriet, who try hard to sort things out.
