Harm goes on trial in a court-martial for the murder of Loren. A Marine major from Quantico prosecutes, and a Navy woman lieutenant commander from San Diego defends. However, the NCIS continues its investigation anyway. The cap proves to be Harm's, but someone planted it. NCIS agents find a pattern, they pursue it, and they find another suspect, who, during questioning, begins to concede that he was the killer. That lets Harm off the hook. Meanwhile Agent Gibbs goes aboard a surface ship of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea to question a terrorist in custody. He gets an answer, which allows him and his mates to thwart the next imminent attack on a Naval vessel.

A different typeface is used for the episode credits on the two-part episode "Ice Queen" and "Meltdown" as this was the pilot for the later series "Navy NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigation Service" (2003). See more
