* GenreSavvy: Lucas does not accept everything at face value when [=Seaquest=] is abducted by alien rebels who need their help to fight against their tyrannical overlords; he believes that the story they give the crew is just a little ''too'' perfect, as if engineered to make them as sympathetic as possible. [[spoiler: It turns out [=SeaQuest=] really ''can'' turn the tide of the fight because neither side has underwater technology even close to their space travel technology, but the alien rebels are lying about being ''the rebels'' and are actually the bad guys hoping to gain the underwater advantage by manipulating the crew.]]

*BerserkButton: Do not call Dagwood a freak. He will remind in you in no uncertain terms that he is a prototype.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: An especially egregious example about the ''second'' version of the seaQuest. Among its many weapons are 'intercepts'- weapons that can destroy incoming torpedoes. In the second season opener, the crew used them to defend against an aattacking sub - yet in that season's finale, they seemed to forget they had those weapons and let the ship get sunk by an alien super-weapon fired at them.

* ConspicuousCGI: Probably one of the worst offenders in TV history. Granted, it was 1993, but this came from the same studio that gave us ''Film/JurassicPark'' that same year.

* BadassGrandpa: Both Bridger and MCPO Crocker invoke this a few times. Notable examples include "Brothers and Sisters," when they both haul out their BlingOfWar to go talk down a grief-crazed teenager. (The kid is a hardcore MilitaryBrat and won't respond to the rest of the rather MildlyMilitary crew.)

* BadassGrandpa: Both Bridger and MCPO Crocker prove their badass credentials on a few occasions. Notably, they actively invoke this a few times. Notable examples include the trope in "Brothers and Sisters," when they both haul out their BlingOfWar Sisters" to go talk down a grief-crazed teenager. (The kid is teenager who's resisted all of the crew's attempts to reach out to him - reasoning that a hardcore MilitaryBrat and won't might respond better to a more authoritarian approach, Bridger and Crocker break out their BlingOfWar and ''order'' the rest of the rather MildlyMilitary crew.)kid to stand down.

* CompleteTheQuoteTitle:
** "The Sincerest Form of Flattery'': The episode deals with an AI-controlled attack sub that [[AIIsACrapshoot goes rogue]], but which was programmed using Bridger's personality, and using tactics he developed. Imitation, after all...
** "By Any Other Name" deals with an underwater horticultural colony being overrun by an unknown force, [[spoiler:a plant that mutated and became intelligent and aggressive. And immune to lasers. A rose (or crazy B-movie inspired monster plant) by any other name]].
** "And Everything Nice" has Lucas falling for a girl on shore [[spoiler: but this turns out to be a subversion as sugar and spice she is not. She's actually part of a terrorist cell using Lucas to gain access to UEO facilities]].
