Episode Notes
Although dramatic in nature, this episode served as the pilot for McHale's Navy. Once the series was picked up the format was changed to a comedy.

Ernest Borgnine, Gary Vinson, and John Wright were the only actors from this pilot to reprise their roles once it was picked up as a series.
