* {{Expy}}: A lot of one off characters especially in early season episodes were based on actual military personnel involved in well known military controversies during the era. Lt Puller in the pilot episode is one for Kara Hultgreen, the first ever woman to qualify to fly the F-14 Tomcat, Lt Isaacs in a second season episode is one for Lt Carey Lohrenz, a female F-14 pilot who sued the Navy alleging sexual harassment and discrimination after losing her "wings", Raglan the SEAL is one for Richard Marcinko and Red Cell, a marine gunship pilot in season three is one for Kelly Flynn the Air Force pilot dishonorably discharged for having an extramarital affair, an ensign in season five is one for a Naval Academy midshipman who murdered her romantic rival, a major general in season seven is one for a marine colonel accused of "cheating" to win an exercise, etc.

** The premise of the show - a lawyer who is also a naval aviator with full flying privileges, itself takes a lot of artistic license. Normally, when a naval aviator loses his "wings" or flight qualification, it is impossible to regain that qualification. Harm should never have been allowed to get in the cockpit of a Navy fighter ever again.

** In "When the Bough Breaks", while Bud is [[spoiler: recovering from his leg injury]], he befriends the Admiral's current girlfriend, a professor of Shakespeare, by noting how several episodes of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' borrow from some of {{Shakespeare}}'s plays.

* OneOfUs: In-universe example; Bud is a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan. In one episode, unable to get a suspected terrorist to talk, Bud mutters to himself, "What would Captain Kirk do in this situation?" The suspect then answers, "He would tell you to respect the Prime Directive." Bud ends up engaging the suspect in a discussion of Trek, leading to his getting the suspect to open up to him. In another episode, he has a spirited conversation with Admiral Chegwidden's girlfriend, a literature professor, on Shakespearean themes in classic Trek.

* WorthyOpponent: "Cowboys and Cossacks" has Harm and Mack observing a joint war game with the Russian Navy. Harm is assigned to ride along aboard a Russian guided-missile destroyer whose captain has a long history of facing off with the skipper of the US destroyer opposing him in the exercise, both of them being old Cold War hands. The Russian eventually decides to shoot live missiles, provoking retaliation from the American destroyer. He knows his own ship is outclassed, and reveals to Harm that his ship is doomed by budget cuts, and deserves to go out fighting rather than rusting in a breaking yard. The Russian captain chooses to go down with his ship, but asks Harm to give his regards to the American captain, saying "We were never friends, but we were the ''best'' of enemies." The US captain shares the sentiment, and has his crew salute the Russian destroyer as she goes down.

** EveryEpisodeEnding: Every episode on ''JAG'', except the PilotMovie, ended with a freeze frame, usually of one or two of the main characters either smiling or showing a concerned look.

** EveryEpisodeEnding: Every episode on ''JAG'', except the PilotMovie, ended with a freeze frame, usually of one or two of the main characters either smiling or showing a concerned look. This carried over to ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', which played around with the effect to make it more distinct for each incarnation it took.

* UnCancelled: After the first season, the show was canceled by Creator/{{NBC}}. However, {{CBS}} picked it up immediately after NBC canceled it upon discovering that the show was [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff absolutely huge in Australia]] and was slowly gaining a cult audience in the United States. CBS proceeded to turn it into the biggest hit on the network. NBC did keep a finger in the pie by securing exclusive cable syndication rights for its USA Network.

Ironically, JAG would turn out to be the progenitor of a SharedUniverse, so by choosing to save it from cancellation, multiple CBS shows now have one universe to call their own.

* LostEpisode / CutShort: Something of a unique example - the first season was to end with an episode called "Skeleton Crew", which ended with a CliffHanger of Harm being arrested for murder. It wasn't aired by NBC, but did air in reruns on USANetwork and was included in the DVD release. While the original episode was never used, footage from it was later included in the third season's "Death Watch".
