Submarine Shower Video Oversight

The most intriguing answer relating to questions about the USS Wyoming (Gold) video irregularities is the one insiders have been keeping to themselves. Molten Eagle asked that question here in mid-December:

Who actually distributed a shower video copy to an officer on another sub?
a) an enlisted man
b) the Chief of the Boat
c) one of the women officers (RED FLAG)
d) the Wyoming (G) XO or CO?
e) Nobody (it is part of the Navy cover up) 

And, we thought we had covered every likely possibility. Alas, we we had been mistaken.  How many readers realized that there had been one more possibility?

f) an anonymous crewmember may have asked a girl friend (not his) to forward the video to an officer on the other sub, or not, in order to maintain anonymnity.

The title's pun was intended.  

Rumor has it that at least one NCIS (the popular CBS-TV series) writer has been toying with an episode based on actual USS Wyoming events.  Names, ranks, gender, etc. would be changed. Will there be a 13th season for NCIS?  Don't hold your breath, submariners.

Submarines are always silent and strange.

Hi Vigilis

Your coverage of rapidly declining male-female relations on US submarines is a high point on what must be a quiet existence beneath the waves.

It is unsettling however that there are no similar scandals in Australia's submarine service.

Scandals should be occurring given the relatively small crews and more intimate dimentions of our Collins submarines. They perhaps have included about 4 women per crew for the last 2 years.

Is the Silent Service traditions of Collins crews stifling the free speech of rightious male-female indignation or are there just no appropriate scandals on Collins? The silence is unsettling!
