* CoolShip: So cool, in fact, that the UEO doesn't build another one until absolutely necessary. When the crew makes it back to Earth after being missing with [=SeaQuest=] for ten years, Bridger actually [[LampshadeHanging asks Hudson why they didn't build a replacement again]]; during their absence, the world has politically fractured to the point where the technology to do so is no longer available to the UEO.
* DarkSecret: Both Bridger and Ford were involved in [[spoiler: The UEO's unethical experiments on Daggers.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Milos Teslov, a political dictator on the run from authorities for 'ethnic cleansing' and has killed what he claims is millions of people, cares deeply for his traumatized son, and would do anything to hear him talk again. [[spoiler: By the end, he gets his wish]]

* FutureFoodIsArtificial: Lt. Krieg rails against this over a mess-hall meal in "Whale Song." Among other things, eating beef has been outlawed due to the environmental impacts of ranching, and most fruits and vegetables are grown hydroponically from genetically engineered seed (all the better to foil a would-be MilitaryMoonshiner like Krieg himself, according to Lucas - "they engineered the buzz out of [barley], you can't distill it.") Krieg's subsequent machinations to get his hands on half a pound of real pre-ban ground round form most of the B-plot and are heavily PlayedForLaughs.
** The ''eating'' of beef wasn't outlawed; it was the manufacture, sale and transport that was made illegal. (Hmm... sounds a bit like the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.)

PlayedForLaughs - especially since Bridger confiscates the completed burger... and takes a big bite before throwing the rest away.

-->'''Krieg:''' What a sweetheart.
-->'''Bridger:''' (disbelieving) The ''Lieutenant Commander'' is a sweetheart?
-->'''Krieg:''' Oh, that's old history... see, Katie and I, we used to be... ({{Beat}}) Married.
-->'''Bridger:''' (quizzical look)
-->'''Krieg:''' Seemed perfect on the surface. We were both top in our Academy class, headed for command, and then we... well, you can see. (long pause) I guess she didn't really leave me, she just... left me behind.

''[=SeaQuest=] DSV'' was a groundbreaking show set initially in 2018. It first aired on Creator/{{NBC}} in 1993 with Roy Scheider as Captain Nathan Bridger. The show received significant retools at the beginning of each season, including numerous cast rotations. Scheider left after the second season and was replaced by MichaelIronside as Captain Oliver Hudson. The show was then renamed ''[=SeaQuest=] 2032'' as the second season finale set up the characters to be [[TimeSkip thrust ten years into the future]]. The third season performed abysmally, and the show was canceled.

* 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.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
