Harm goes on trial in a court-martial for the murder of Loren Singer. A Marine major from Quantico prosecutes, and a Navy woman lieutenant commander from San Diego defends. However, the NCIS continues its investigation anyway. The cap proves to be Harm's, but someone planted it. NCIS agents find a pattern, they pursue it, and they find another suspect, who, during questioning, begins to concede that he was the killer. That lets Harm off the hook. Meanwhile Agent Gibbs goes aboard a surface ship of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea to question a terrorist in custody. He gets an answer, which allows him and his mates to thwart the next imminent attack on a Naval vessel. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Agent Gibbs of the NCIS goes to the fictional USS Chattanooga in the Mediterranean Sea. There is no such ship in the US Navy. However, there have been two vessels by that name: a steam sloop, in service 1866-71, and C-16, a protected cruiser of the Denver class, in service 1904-21. There have been two proposals (in 1944 and -45) to give that name to two other ships, one of which was renamed Uniontown before its commissioning and the construction of the other was halted before completion. Although the establishing footage used for the scene shows a guided missile destroyer (USS Arleigh Burke, designated DDG-51), the letter designation of the Chattanooga is CG, not DDG, and therefore the Chattanooga, if real, would be a guided missile cruiser, most likely a Ticonderoga class based on the time period this is meant to have occurred.

When Major McBurney is on the range in BDU's, his collar insignia is gold. This would make him a target on the battlefield. The proper insignia would be black. See more »


Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: What do you got for me?
Abby Sciuto: Well, I tested the sediment of the fibers in the cover. There were high concentrations of quartz, feldspar, and kaloinite.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: I flunked Earth science, Abby.
