Harm gets elevated to the bench in this episode of JAG, and presides over a friendly fire incident where a Navy Tomcat pilot strafed a British Army platoon at night. The pilot claims he saw the telltale muzzle flashes of a flak cannon and claims that the platoon fired at him. As the case proceeds, Harm figures out what actually happened - but the impartiality required of a judge constrains him from doing anything about his theory.
- Grounded Forever: The Tomcat pilot is facing an evaluation board, and this is a highly likely fate for him.
- It Was Their Generator: Turns out the "muzzle flashes" the pilot saw, was actually the sparks from a diesel generator the British soldiers were trying to power up.
- Ripped from the Headlines: The Tarnak Farm Incident.
- The Judge: Harm gets to be one. He finds that it is too passive a role for him.
