* AlternateHistory: The most important seafaring vessel is the USS ''Hillary Clinton'', named after the assassinated president. Plausible in 2004, when the first book was published; not so plausible in the wake of Clinton's defeat in the 2016 election.

A trilogy of AlternateHistory novels by John Birmingham about a Multinational Task Force from 2021 sent to oust an Indonesian Islamofascist movement getting sent by NegativeSpaceWedgie to 1942, just off the coast of Midway, where the bulk of the fleet accidentally ends up in the company of Admiral Ray Spruance's task force. A massive naval battle breaks out when Spruance's task force sees one Japanese ship accompanying the fleet, believing them all to be Imperial Japanese, but the fighting is eventually halted and the future fleet is brought to anchor in Pearl Harbor where the Up-timers explain themselves to various contemporary military and government officials. Culture shock ensues and the war finds itself irrevocably changed.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: When the modern task force is sent back to 1942, several crew members have seizures, and Col. Lonesome Jones is seen clearing the airway of a man who's [[TongueTrauma swallowed his tongue.]] In real life, both neurologists and epileptics know that you ''can't'' swallow your tongue in a seizure. In fact, sticking your hands or an object in someone's mouth to protect their tongue is liable to cause [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs more damage.]]

* BlackComedyRape: One of the temps, [[TheMole a fence for the mafia]], comes across a tablet with an extremely stupid gangster rap song called "Rape the Bitch Now". His bemused, enraged, and racist reaction is darkly humorous.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The cause of a lot of tension between the racially and gender-egalitarian 2021 military and their 1940's counterparts. For starters, a fight breaks out on board a future ship and contemporary ship that ended up fused together via NegativeSpaceWedgie when, in the aftermath of a firefight, a female medic slaps one of the contemporary crewmembers when he indirectly asks for blood that doesn't come from a non-white person (a disproportionate number of the future ship's crew are either black or Chinese-American).
