[[AfterTheEnd The end came]] and the UsefulNotes/{{Earth}} died. A catastrophe of [[ApocalypseHow irrevocable]] proportions makes the planet unsuitable for large scale civilization-- or even ''life''. It can be self inflicted from our [[GreenAesop abuse]], [[NeglectfulPrecursors negligence]] and wars, or external by aliens, astronomical phenomena, or other causes. Usually, a [[HomeworldEvacuation mass exodus]] occurs where survivors settle on a new planet in an extrasolar system (though a {{Terraform}}ed Mars is a popular in-system option), sometimes all over the galaxy, and live on. Perhaps a little wiser, or perhaps [[HumansAreBastards doomed to repeat our mistakes]]. During the course of generations the Earth will leave fact and become legend; a [[TheTimeOfMyths mythical]] place of endless blue and green and CrystalSpiresAndTogas. How much of this will be Revisionist History, propaganda, or simple nostalgia varies by setting.

* ''Film/AlienResurrection''. Every character thinks the place is a polluted, unlivable piece of shit.
* ''Film/BladeRunner''. An interesting subversion. Everyone on Earth is fleeing the overcrowded place for the Offworld Colonies, so it's sort of an UnbuiltTrope.

** The narrator of the final episode describes the events leading up to ''"Man—our ancestor"'' leaving a destroyed Earth, [[spoiler: but in a subversion the last scene reveals the narrator to be a present day scientist dramatizing a "what-if" scenario as part of a public lecture.]]
