JAG is an adventure drama about an elite wing of officers trained as lawyers who investigate, prosecute and defend those accused of crimes in the military. Navy Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb, an ace pilot turned lawyer, and Marine Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie, a beautiful by-the-book officer, are colleagues who hold the same high standards but find themselves clashing when they choose different routes to get to the same place. The unmistakable chemistry between them must be held at bay for professional reasons as they traverse the globe together with a single mission: to search for and discover the truth. Helping them with their mission is Navy Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts, a lawyer who proved his grit and determination when, after losing a leg in a land mine field while on a mission, fought back and became even better at his job.
The defense never rests.

Every scene begins with a graphic which depicts the time in military format and the word "Zulu". Zulu is the military phonetic designation for the time zone known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). In most cases, the time listed corresponds to the apparent local time rather than ZULU time. For instance, the start of the workday in Norfolk Virginia would more likely be 0700 Eastern Standard (Romeo) Time or 0700 Eastern Daylight (Quebec) Time and certainly not 0700 Zulu, which would correspond to a local time of 0200 or 0300 which would be early even by military standards.

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.
