* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''{{Genome}}'', the entire population of the Ebon colony consists of the devout followers of the Church of the Angered Christ, which mandates that all aliens must be exterminated to make way for the "true children of God." To this end, they start breeding experts in torturing and killing aliens and building devastating weapons and ships (including StarKilling bombs). By the time TheEmpire decides to shut this nuthouse down in order to appease it's alien neighbors, the military strength of Ebon rivals the combined might of TheEmpire. However, no Ebonite will willingly kill a human, and their entire fleet is destroyed with only a few shots fired in response (mostly by nervous captains who immediately commit suicide). When humanity is threatened with an all-out war with their alien neighbors, the Emperor seriously considers letting the Ebonites loose in order to save TheEmpire. Thankfully, it never gets to that.

* The BigBad of the first ''DirigentMercenaryCorps'' book is a group of religious fanatics that were exiled from Earth for trying to take it over. They wound up on an existing colony. At first they pretty much kept to themselves, then they went back to their old tricks, at which point the colonists hired the DMC to protect them.

* In ''Literature/TheExpanse'', the Church of Latter Day Saints (AKA Mormons) are financing the construction of a massive GenerationShip - the first of its kind - destined for approximately 100 years of travel to a nearby star. When it is shown in [[Series/TheExpanse the TV series]], it's larger than a city and the only ship to have CentrifugalGravity.

* ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' has the Protoss Tal'darim faction, a splinter of their society that split off so long ago that the mainstream Protoss seem to have forgotten they ever existed. Their culture is radically different, focused around KlingonPromotion, dominating leadership, and huffing Terrazine gas. Oh, and they worship a being called Amon, [[spoiler:who happens to be a fallen Xel'Naga and the BigBad of the entire franchise.]]

* Russian Old Believers (members of various ultra-conservative schismatic sects of OrthodoxChristianity) founded many Siberian towns and villages during the 17th century. There still are Old Believer villages in Siberia. Their remoteness let them survive both the Tsarist era proselytism by canonical Orthodox preachers and the Communist era anti-religious policies.

** The SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/PandoraFirstContact'' has the Divine Ascension, led by Lady Lilith Vermillion. Originally founded by Lilith to gather blackmail information on her followers via the social media, it has grown by leaps and bounds. At some point, a [[TisOnlyABulletInTheBrain failed assassination attempt]] results in Lilith believing herself to be a genuine prophet.
