In a recent rerun of Hawaii Five-O (episode "Murder–Eyes Only, 1975 season premiere), Commander Steve McGarrett is doing a two-week stint in the Naval Reserves. Of course, where McGarrett goes, trouble follows–[sup]1[/sup]often in the person of the nefarious [sup]2[/sup]Wo Fat.
To investigate a murder (whose trail indeed leads to Wo Fat), McGarrett is transferred from one warship to another in a ski-lift-looking contraption that is bridging the two ships.
The question then: How do they get the ships linked together in the first place? (Not that I think it’s hard, I’m just wondering about the procedure, since I don’t think you want to get these [sup]3[/sup]behemoths too close together.
[sup]1[/sup]Actually, only 11 times in its 12-year run.
[sup]2[/sup]Portrayed by Yellow-Peril-at-large (and non-Asian!) actor Kenneth Dickerson from NJ!
