Having already passed the bar exam, Bud takes an oath (from the admiral) as a member of the JAG Corps. Aboard the fictional USS Coral Sea (CV-43) in the Persian Gulf, a series of major engineering casualties result in several serious injuries and other problems which for several hours prevent her from conducting flight operations (while seeking to enforce the no-fly zone). Harm and Mac investigate; they learn that some engineering troubles have persisted some time. They consider the possibility of sabotage, and attention turns toward two tech reps aboard. Then the disbursing office gets ripped off. Amid even more excitement Harm and Mac figure it out, and Harm takes a ride.
