** The series prided itself on being more like a real ship, with accurate (or at least believable) use of jargon, than other sci-fi series. Three vital pieces of information into three short sentences; even if it wasn't accurate, it would probably still be a very efficient system. An ''aversion'' of DefconFive -- in naval parlance, 'Condition One' is sealing all compartments in full battle-readiness (as cited in the second paragraph of the trope's main body), so it's a ''correct'' use of jargon.)

* In the book ''Literature/TheAndromedaStrain'', the noise of the sirens going off when areas become contaminated is so loud that it they have to ask someone to turn it down so they can communicate. This tends to highlight the fact that the base systems were not tested properly. This is a major RealLife problem, if a system is not designed correctly.

* ''Film/MasterAndCommander'' has a scene where a [[PluckyMiddie middie]] on night watch, suspects an enemy ship is nearby in the fog. Uncertain, he still calls "We shall beat to quarters!". We then see the Napoleonic War version of a ship going into Red Alert and the midshipman's decision proves most prudent as the ship is fired upon and the crew is ready for battle.

* ''VideoGame{{Starlancer}}'' has a short cutscene of fighter crews running along the corridor while a red light flashes. One can only assume the Squadron Leader's briefings have a tendency to overrun.
