Harm returns to the JAG Corps and to the JAG headquarters. On the bridge of a Naval vessel at sea, a young officer fails and refuses to obey a direct order from his CO; the former is Ltjg. Nelson, the son of the SecNav. Mic prosecutes, and Harm and Bud defend. The CO suggests a solution, and others endorse it, but the jaygee categorically refuses it. The SecNav tries to mend his relationship with his son, but the latter refuses that too. Even after the trial but before the sentencing, the CO again offers the jaygee an opportunity to change the outcome, but he refuses. Jordi gets orders for a transfer overseas. The gunny runs the office in a shipshape manner. Written by DocRushing

The fictional ship in question here is USS Ellyson (FFG-19). In the real world of the US Navy, USS Ellyson (DD-454), a destroyer of the Gleaves class, served 1941-54. The ship also served 1954-70 in the Japanese Maritime Self-defense Force. After the return of the ship, the US then sold her to the Republic of China, which cannibalized her for spare parts. USS Ellyson was named for Theodore Gordon Ellyson, a submarine officer who became also the first US Naval aviator. The real FFG-19 is USS John Moore, a guided-missile frigate of the Oliver Hazard Perry class. See more »
