Someone kills a Naval officer on Okinawa shortly before his ship leaves. Harm is there on leave while changing flights; the admiral directs Harm to the ship; Kate, already on Okinawa for duty, joins Harm; the two investigate; Meg joins them. The victim was well versed in a new computer-based combat-control system aboard his ship, which takes part in war games during the investigation. The new system badly malfunctions, taking control and heading the ship toward North Korea; a welcoming party from shore meets the ship and tries to seize it. Harm and company solve the mystery, and Meg regains control of the ship, which then turns back toward international waters. Written by DocRushing
