Ramage is assigned to lead a convoy of merchants from Barbados to England. He encounters a British ship which fires on the Calypso. The captain is obviously mad but none of the crew will admit that they fired. Once in England the mad captain accuses Ramage of illegally seizing control of his ship. The court martial is run by an old enemy and the case seems hopeless.
