After an engagement with the Japanese that leaves his sister ship the Hornet destroyed, Captain Hardison of the USS Enterprise is informed a Japanese prisoner is asking to see him by name. The man is Luke Suzuki, a Japanese-American childhood friend who Hardison convinced to join the Japanese undercover and who has been feeding the United States information. However, since learning his family are in an internment camp, Suzuki has switched allegiances. He asks Hardison to have them released but Hardison refuses, knowing the only way to free all the families is to win the war. He lets Suzuki go free, despite uncertainty about his loyalties.
