* In ''FanFic/LeftBeyond'', this is actually a major plot point, since the Omega hope that people living in space will be spared the White Throne Judgement. [[spoiler:(They aren't, but the fact that their souls get to the Judgement last due to travel time means that they are able to restart the human race).]]

* Horribly, horribly subverted by ''TwelveThirteen'': [[spoiler: a space station used to create clones for a [[WalkingTransplant different purpose altogether]] is saved when the human extinction event happens on Earth. The clones are retooled for exploration, but start dying of some sort of plague; the human scientists all either go insane, commit suicide, or are murdered when they discover that the world below is uninhabitable.]]

* ''Series/FearTheWalkingDead'' has Strand establish brief contact with a Russian cosmonaut who went into space shortly before the ZombieApocalypse began. The cosmonaut confirms that yes, the entire world was afflicted by the walker plague and that everything was indeed destroyed. The cosmonaut says he doesn't have much longer to live and will die in space, though he gets to exchange some wry Last banter with Strand. It's unknown if the cosmonaut was actually infected with the walker plague before he went into space and if he will turn or not upon death.



* The final entry into the ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'' story for ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' culminates in the [[spoiler:destruction of the Earth by nukes filled with Element 115]], thanks to the combined efforts of [[BigGood Maxis]] and [[BadassCrew Takeo, Dempsey, Nikolai, and Samantha]] to stop [[BigBad Richtofen]]. However, in ''VideoGame/CallofDutyBlackOps2'', the story moves to the adventures of another group of survivors on the destroyed Earth, coping with the [[ZombieApocalypse aftermath]]; leaving us to wonder what happened to the four who got stranded on the Moon after the missiles hit.

The ''Zombies'' timeline at least confirmed that [[spoiler: the soul-swapped Samantha was still around ten years later after the events of ''Buried'', but no word on the other three before the universe is reset.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'', The Earth is destroyed by a nanite-fuled [[RobotWar robot apocalypse]] and most of humanity with it. All that remains are the people who are living on in orbital space stations and various colonies among the solar system, and the game is about these people and how they get on in the aftermath.
