The senator is the daughter of the skipper of the boat. The SecNav turns to the JAG, who appoints a quiet and classified court of inquiry. Harm, Mac, and Sturgis serve as counsel to the court. Due to the extremely high classification of the mission, much wrangling takes place between the CIA and the Navy. However, a surprise piece of evidence leads Harm to the explanation of the resistance within the CIA. A satisfactory compromise comes about, the families learn, and Webb gets a new assignment to a nothing job in a nowhere place. Bud and Harriet together reach a high point in his rehab.
