Plot – Pearl Harbour, 1943. Ensign Willie Keith has just finished the Academy and has decided to embark on the minesweeper "Caine", but onboard there's a mess. Commander De Vriess and Second Steve Maryk are two capable officers but the other crew's members don't work properly. When De Vriess is replaced by Commander Queeg, Willie is happy, but soon he notices in the new commander something strange.

The dramatic episode leads to a general mutiny because Queeg can't hope in his subordinates' understanding anymore.
