Chris Gordon was a Petty Officer who worked at a supply depot. He was murdered by Petty Officer Wong during a prank that seemingly went wrong. He dressed up as an alien and, backed up by a spotlight and dry ice, made to scare Petty Officer Wong and a call girl he was with. Apparently panicking at the sight of the alien Wong floored it, hitting Gordon at high speed. His body later falling from a nightclub ceiling, as well as the mysterious circumstances surrounding his demise, prompted the NCIS Major Case Response Team to be called to investigate the death.
