A disabled F-14 Tomcat crashes and burns during an emergency landing on the deck of a carrier in the Atlantic Sea; the pilot and the RIO escape with minor injuries, but one deck crewman sustains a major injury. Mac and Mic investigate aboard the ship at sea. Skates (a sometime RIO with Harm) served as the LSO during the incident; she faces a court-martial for dereliction of duty; Mac and Mic prosecute, and Harm defends. Skates, as a fellow aviator, reveals to Harm a special insight. Bud joins Harm for research, and the two of them meet resistance. Skates gives remarkable testimony from the stand during the trial. Harm and a hard-nosed skipper reconcile. Written by DocRushing
