Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr. and Lieutenant Colonel Sarah MacKenzie are JAG lawyers, who together investigate and litigate crimes committed by Navy and Marine personnel. Occasionally, they engage in adventurous activities in order to solve their cases. With Rabb's fighter pilot background, and MacKenzie's good looks, they are a hot team both in and out of the courtroom.

A lot of their submarine (underwater) footage is from either (or both) the movies The Hunt for Red October
(1990) and Crimson Tide
(1995). Also interesting, that since the show involves almost exclusively the F-14 Tomcat aircraft, in the last video portion of the opening credits, the aircraft performing maneuvers is clearly an F/A Hornet, or Super Hornet, like the Navy Blue Angels fly. See more
In later seasons of JAG, the introduction shows a brief segment of AH-64 Apache attack helicopters flying in formation. However, as the opening credits are intended to display Navy and Marine Corps activities, this would be a bit out of place, as neither the Navy nor the Marine Corps operates the AH-64 - in the US Military, only the Army does, while the Marine Corps employs the AH-1W 'Whiskey' Cobra.

Following in his father's footsteps as a Naval aviator, Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb Jr. suffered a crash while landing his Tomcat on a storm-tossed carrier at sea. Diagnosed with night blindness, Harm transferred to the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corps, which investigates, defends and prosecutes the law of the sea. There, with fellow JAG lawyer Major Sarah MacKenzie, he now fights in and out of the courtroom with the same daring and tenacity that made him a top gun in the air.
