Pilot Episode #1 & 2 (#2K01 & #2K02) (2 hours)
In the premiere episode, the Admiral must contend with present and future problems relating to the incursion of a Navy aerial exercise by a Cuban aircraft and the subsequent mid-air collision that sends Lt. Simon Adams and the Cuban flyer into the drink. He also has an encounter with his old friend and sometimes adversary, Harlan Adams, while seeking a thousand acres from the City Council for an additional base runway. Adams controls the Council and is opposed to giving up the land. The Admiral then becomes involved in a serious off-the-base problem when Lt. Glenn Matthews is arrested on suspicion of murder. The death of the victim, a young man named Jeremy, vitally involves not only Matthews but his finacee, Hilary Adams, and the Admiral's daughter, Kay, as well.

EPISODE NO. 3
Episode #3 (#2K03)
Admiral Mallory is informed by Admiral Goddard that a formal protest had been filed over the interdiction episode occasioned by the Cuban pilot who had caused young Lt. Simon Adams to crash during an aerial exercise. Now, it seems the Russians have indicated that they want to unofficially explore new rules to govern such situations. The talks are to be classified to avoid publicity and the Russian admiral, one Yuri Bukharin, will ostensibly be visiting Emerald Point's Naval Air Station as part of a delegation for cultural and informational exchange. Meanwhile, Lt. Glenn Matthews has been released to the custody of the Navy to await court-martial as a suspect in the killing of Jeremy Novak. Celia's husband, lawyer Lt. Commander Jack Warren, is mounting his defense of the young flier and is pushing hard to determine if Matthews had any motive for killing Novak.

Episode #4 (#2K04)
Jill St. John makes her debut as series regular Deanna Kincaid, an ambitious Navy wife and sister-in-law to Rear Admiral Thomas Mallory. Deanna shows up as an unexpected guest at Adm. Mallory's reception for visiting Russian Admiral Yuri Bukharin and immediately makes her presence known. It's soon apparent that her brother-in-law is none too pleased by her appearance. The reception is a momentary respite for the two admirals who have begun their serious, though unofficial, talks on how best to avert future aerial incidents that could plunge the world into tragedy. It's obvious that there is little love lost between the two antagonists. There is also unexpected tragedy that strikes the Warren family just at a time when Lt. Commander Jack Warren is about to begin his court-martial defense of Lt. Glenn Matthews who has been accused of killing Jeremy Novak in a drunken brawl. The case has taken a decided turn for the worse when a witness is located who is prepared to testify that Matthew's fiancee, Hilary Adams, had indeed been having an affair with the deceased. Warren knows only too well that such testimony would provide a clear case of motive for the accused.
