This was not the first time David McCallum and Don Franklin worked together.

Don Franklin played the Commander of the SeaQuest and was taken hostage by David McCallum's character. See more »


When Sacks is questioning DiNozzo about his activities on the night in question, he asks, "where were you Tuesday night between 0900 and 0300 the next morning?". However he is not referring to 9pm at night - shown when DiNozzo replies, "Worked til seven..", which therefore accounts for 0900 - 1900. See more »
