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 »


At one point during a briefing, Loren describes a foreign submarine as "slightly wider in diameter". The correct maritime term for the width of a ship, even a submarine, is the beam. To sound more authentic and less landlubberly, Loren should have described the vessel as having a "slightly wider beam". See more »

Why not

JAG writers have sucked every bit of blood from Top Gun and Flight of the Intruder so why not Hunt for Red October? A shameless rip off.
