Three Navy enlisted men waylay the owner of a bar in Norfolk, and one of them, without provocation, harshly beats him. Harm and Mac investigate; they find a possible lead and an interesting shipboard ethic. Harm and Mac prosecute, and Mic and Bud defend. Testimony reveals that the three men and a woman sailor had previously gone together to the bar in question, that the woman had become unconscious and eventually raped, and that the assault on the owner had supposedly taken place as an act of vengeance. However, Harm finds out what had happened, and what could not have happened. Meanwhile Bud helps his brother, Mikey, to deal with his recent enlistment.
