Lt. Cmdr. Robert Badger earns most of his promotions by asking embarrassing questions with the unfortunate side effect of being constantly moved from one posting to another. He finally ends up as a training officer at Dartmouth naval base where he takes three new trainee officers under his wing. When he embarrasses his superior officers once more he is seconded to the fifth fleet where he takes his three trainees with him.
