Ben's longtime unofficial ward Davy (Lou Antonio), a Ute Indian, tries to rejoin the tribe that had exiled him years earlier. Davey's re-entry into the culture of his ancestors is complicated when he falls in love with Bright Moon (Cherie Latimer), the daughter of Chief Lone Spear (Arnold Moss), and the intended bride of White Wolf (Ned Romero). The resultant inter-tribal bitterness and dissension enables a group of bigoted white men to sabotage a crucial treaty negotiation. Written by William Douglas Lansford and Richard Wendley, "In Defense of Honor" was originally slated to air on March 31, 1968, but was moved to April 28 due to coverage of President Johnson's refusal to run for another term.
