M.E. Comment - I encountered real NCIS at least four times. Only twice, did the agents identify themselves: first at a naval training center barracks in San Diego from the window of which an erstwhile sailor had shot a foreign national (ROK) with slingshot steel-ball ammo; and much later at a fraud-related seminar in Charleston, SC. Another occasion involved an undercover sailor who stood submarine sonar watches at-sea in an investigation of nuclear submarine crew members subsequently discharged. The fourth time? Not at liberty to discuss, but he was an O-5, and perhaps from another agency.
Submarines are always silent and strange.
