Many works of modern fantasy or speculative fiction are set in a [[SingleBiomePlanet mostly watery world]] (or a mostly watery part of the world where the rest isn't of much matter) with distant islands connected by trade routes, ships sailing back and forth, and mighty colonial nations vying for rulership of the seas. Also often called Pirate Punk, as the setting naturally lends itself (but is by no means obliged) to have many {{Pirate}}s and buccaneers, whether they're wielding cutlasses on sailing ships or the aquatic equivalent of HumongousMecha. May contain OrganicTechnology, and have a large focus on what happens under the waves as well as over. Fantastic elements based on old sailors' superstitions (mermaids, [[GhostShip abandoned derelicts]] [[FlyingDutchman that often aren't so abandoned after all]], [[KrakenAndLeviathan giant sea monsters]]) also make a frequent appearance.

** Throughout the series, we see many different types of ships, from junk-like fishing boats armed with ballistae to carrier-sized wooden Homes (several of which later undergo refits to ''become'' carriers), from East Indiaman-derived frigates and steam/sail hybrids to WorldWarOne and WorldWarTwo-era ships (including a submarine). This series has as much SchizoTech as it can fit, short of putting FrickinLaserBeams or missiles on wooden ships.

* MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/{{Sphere}}'' occurs on its majority on a U.S. Navy UnderwaterBase at the bottom of the ocean, and there is a constant mention of how the extreme depths are a challenge for both man and machine (even something as simple as cooking gets a whole lot more complicated when done in a helium/oxygen environment).
