Al Qaeda has bought an old diesel-electric submarine from Iran, has recruited a Russian submarine captain and several Russian submarine sailors, and has loaded a submarine-launched cruise missile with a dirty nuclear warhead. The admiral, Sturgis, and Loren brief a three-star admiral in one of the war rooms of the National Military-command Center at the Pentagon. Harm and Mac, still in Afghanistan, follow the trail of the uranium, and they arrive aboard USS Seahawk (CVN-65) for testing for possible exposure to radiation. Sturgis goes as an adviser aboard USS Watertown (SSN-696) in pursuit of the rogue submarine in the Arabian Sea. A battle takes place, and Harm successfully uses an unusual tactic in the air. Webb stays busy, and Harriet frets about the colors for the new house. Bud gives legal advice on the bridge aboard Seahawk; however, he also goes ashore to attend the groundbreaking for a new school building in Afghanistan and, sadly, takes a tragic misstep.

Did You Know?


The interior scenes aboard the fictional rogue submarine were shot aboard a WW2-era USN submarine of the Portsmouth design with modifications, especially in the control room. Many of the hardware items are clearly recognizable to older US submariners. When the Russian captain goes to the after torpedo room, he walks between the two Fairbanks-Morse diesel engines in the after engine room. See more »


During one scene aboard the fictional USS Watertown, a crewmember describes the rogue submarine as "diving". However, the other boat was already submerged; that is, it made a dive when it submerged. It's absurd to describe the boat as "diving" while it was already submerged. One common correct description for the action in question is that the other boat "goes deep" or "goes deeper".

an unrealistic episode
3 April 2019 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

J.a.g. officers are not line officers and would not be engaged in fighting with weapons like regular military line personnel. this episode also has them doing intelligence gathering and advising senior command of enemy capabilities... if it wasn't so pathetic, i'd be laughing ... then ltcmdr rabb is chosen to fly an f-14 mission off a carrier to shoot down a cruise missile launched by a diesel submarine .... its hilarious ... the writers are really desperate
