* LaserGuidedKarma: Admiral Graham tries to nullify the exercise by complaining about Dodge ignoring orders. Admiral Graham shuts him down with a terse "Stow it. He had higher orders. And you can forget about that third star." Graham figured this war game would clinch his appointment for promotion; however, his promotion wasn't yanked for the war game. The Navy would probably overlook his changing the size of the game board; however, [[spoiler: A visiting US Navy admiral on board a ship has no authority to just take over which Graham does on board the Orlando because it's personal between him and Dodge]]. Command in the US Navy is sacrosanct.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Dodge's speech introducing Diving Officer Lake to the rest of the crew has some of these, much to his embarrassment.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: When Graham dares his fellow admirals to "call [him] prude" during his anti-Dodge rant in the prologue, one of them can be seen grinning and giving a subtle "that's exactly what you are" nod in the background.

** At least one of the incidents in question, however, the low-tech forces were cheating even by the standards of the exercise (real assets cannot teleport, and a 2,000 pound fishing trawler cannot launch a missile whose launcher alone weighs double the boat's displacement). And "refloating" sunk assets is actually SOP for a naval wargame: The exercises exist as much to train the crewmen as they do the Admirals, and getting "sunk" on day 1 of a wargame and having nothing to do for the rest of the exercise would be counterproductive.

* ArtisticLicenseShips: During the final chase, ''Orlando'' surfaces (using stock footage from ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'') to chase the surfaced ''Stingray''. In RealLife, while diesel submarines are much faster when surfaced, nuclear-power subs are actually slower. A real nuclear-powered sub would never surface when chasing someone.
** Not necessarily. The mouth of the Chesapeake Bay bottoms out around 50ft, and LA class subs have a draft of around 30ft. Plus there's the Bay Bridge Tunnel to avoid (which you have to pass to get to Norfolk). Realistically, they'd both be on the surface. Charleston is of similar depth, but with jetties around the channel instead of a bridge. Still ArtisticLicense.
