* Space is [[TwoDSpace two-dimensional]]. Viewscreens are almost always two-dimensional, when displays for battles at least should be three. Spaceships may also have navigation lights like sea ships: very useful for gauging another ship's orientation in 2-D, but useless in 3-D.

* This tradition has gone on so long that assuming Earth does ever manage create routine space flight (which is unfortunately [[ModernStasis looking less likely]]) it is almost certain that this trope will be [[{{Defictionalization}} Defictionalized]] .

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' had an episode about a space cruise on a space ship called the ''Titanic.'' The episode goes pretty much as one would expect, with Zapp Brannigan (the captain of the ''Titanic)'' making as many comparisons between space and the ocean as possible.

** One
episode about focuses on a space cruise on a space ship called the ''Titanic.'' The episode goes pretty much as Fry wonders at one would expect, with point if they hit a space dolphin, while Zapp Brannigan (the captain of the ''Titanic)'' making makes as many comparisons between space and the ocean as possible.



** Fry seemed quite confused with the concept of SpacePirates until Leela helpfully explained they were like pirates ... in space. On the other hand, he wondered at one point if they had hit a space dolphin.
** And then there was an episode when the Planet Express Ship started {{Space Whale}}ing, the cluster of SpaceClouds with its own lighthouse... they used Space As An Ocean a lot. Of course, when the joke called for it the writers were just as happy to use Space Is A Railway or Space Is The Interstate Highway.

* Inverted in the Galleon Galaxy level of ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee''. It's a GangplankGalleon-themed level, set on a body of water with a lot of space-themed elements. For example, you can transform into a galleon, but it's called a spaceship.
