* PocketDimension: In ''Ark'', due to the complicated physics of how the warp bubble around the ship works, the Ark is essentially in a pocket dimensions when it's traveling FTL. From the inside, everything looks normal, but from the outside nobody would be able to see the ship because the Warp Bubble is actually microscopic.

* CosyCatastrophe: The earliest stages of the flood were treated as this; for example, as New York City slowly starts flooding, native New Yorkers pretty much just slog through the water to continue their jobs.

** More secure locations like the relocated US capital of Denver are this for a time. With those participating in the Ark Project in particular brought to the still-functional city and given as much comfort as could still be spare. By the time the Ark launches however, things go downhill fast.

* DistantFinale: The three follow up short stories, ''Earth Two'',''Earth Three'' and ''Earth One'' form this with ''Earth one'' revealing that [[spoiler:The ''Halivah'' eventually established another colony in a brown dwarf star system, ten thousand years later humanity had created an interstellar civilisation, including the three worlds and dozens of colonies. An expidition goes in search of the origins of Humanity and eventually locates the drowned Earth. Human descendants are discovered who have evolved into non-intelligent aquatic forms, as well as evidence in the form of an Apollo Mission plaque that confirms that Earth is the lost homeworld.]]

** ''Earth One'' [[spoiler:reveals that this was the ultimate fate of Ark 2. Over countless generations, the descendants of those who went in Ark 2 evolved into aquatic lifeforms that have inherited Earth but are unaware of what's they've lost. As they're ''incapable'' of being aware due to their lack of sentience.]]

* VirtualTrainingSimulation: The "[=HeadSpace=]" simulations in ''Ark'' are a kind of virtual reality. They can even simulate sensations if the user climbs into a special body-suit. Used during the Ark's voyage for the crew's entertainment, and later for planetary training (since the shipborn children have never been on a planet or even experience ''gravity'').

A series by StephenBaxter about an [[TheGreatFlood apocalyptic global]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin flood]], based on the theory that there are deep subterranean reservoirs of water locked up in the Earth's mantle. What would happen if all this water started [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt coming up out of the planet's core]]?

**''Earth Two'' [[spoiler:A female military dictator has seized power on the titular planet and annihilates the last records of Earth out of a belief they should not be "chained to the past." While Earth Two's lack of metals prevents star travel, it is revealed in ''Earth one'' that when the first visitors from the third human colony ''Earthen'' visited the world the new culture now known as the ''Xians'' captured the ships. They then set out to destroy all human knowledge of the past, and devastated the settled galaxy before they were finally stopped.]]

* AlcubierreDrive: In ''Ark''. ''Ark 1'' is actually composed of two hulls connected with a tether, [[CentrifugalGravity rotating around each other to generate gravity]]. Interestingly, due to how the ship's drive works, every jump is a BlindJump: the destination is calculated beforehand, but once the ship enters warp, there's no way to drop out of it or even see what's happening at the destination prior to arriving.
