* The Krynn ship at the end of ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject 2: Buried In Time'', also fits into the "Lobster" category. It's filled with water or some other aqueous fluid due to the creatures there requiring that habitat and they travel throughout it via tunnels that squish and warp in peristaltic motion to push them along. It's also devoid of visible light, as the Krynn only see in Klegmar Radiation.

* The Narada of the 2009 film ''Film/StarTrek'' is a '''marginal''' example. It was originally a mining ship, but [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120202111739/memoryalpha/en/images/5/5f/Narada.jpg looks like it came out of a Lovecraftian story]], with the firepower to match. ExpandedUniverse has explained it was once [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090617230811/memoryalpha/en/images/b/bd/Countdown_Narada.jpg a more humble looking ship]], but took on its new horrifying appearance and capabilities after its crew stole reverse-engineered Borg technology. It's also a GeniusLoci, though this, like the reverse-engineered Borg tech and its kinship with V'Ger, is referenced only in supplementary materials.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the {{Precursor}}'s Star Roads described in ''Literature/TheForerunnerSaga'' are just plain ''bizarre''. They are gigantic, multi-kilometer thick "cables" of neural physics that are practically invincible and form superstructures around planets or even entire star systems. When weaponized, they are capable of superluminal movement in a way even the Forerunners did not understand, can mess up Slipspace and make it unnavigable, and are capable of ripping apart fleets or even entire planets through gravity manipulation. They are also theorized to be capable of physically moving stars if used in the right manner. [[spoiler:All the Star Roads in the Milky Way were annihilated by the Halo Array 100,000 years ago, however, they are known to exist in other galaxies as well...]]

* In ''{{Guyver}}'', it turns out that the relics beneath the various Chronos headqarters are bizarre starships operable by Guyver-unit-wearing pilots. Oh, and their escape pods give the attached Guyver a SuperMode.

** The Void Ship from [[DoctorWhoS28E12ArmyOfGhosts "Army of Ghosts"]] is a multidimensional vessel that resembles a solid gold sphere, but weighs nothing, radiates no heat, casts no shadow, etc., until it folds open to reveal its occupants. It is said to be a ship designed to explore the void between the universes; it is also thought by the Doctor to be impossible. It is never stated who built the Void Ship, but it even gives the TARDIS a run for its money in the "conceptually weird" category.

* In ''VideoGame/Stellaris'':
** The Molluscoid, Fungoid, and Arthropoid ships fall under the "Lobster" category. Artropoid ships are harsh, rough-looking brownish floating hives, Fungoid ships are sinister-looking, smooth black things with teal highlights, and Molluscoid ships get smooth, squid shapes and tentacle-like decorations, but all three are still pretty recognizable as spaceships.

* [[StarfishAlien Outsider]] starships in Larry Niven's [[KnownSpace Known Space]] setting are spindly webs of material the size of small cities (in fact, they are the only place where Outsiders are known to live, spending most of their time in interstellar space following ''[[SpaceWhale Starseeds]]'' for reasons they refuse to tell anyone). The ships use an advanced reactionless drive which can accelerate/decelerate to a large fraction of the speed of light in moments without injuring the physically fragile crew (the Outsiders have hyperdrive, and sold the technology to humans, but [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace they refrain from using it themselves]]). The ships have no interior besides a few small rooms that can be pressurized for alien guests; the Outsiders [[BizarreAlienBiology live in the vacuum of space and ''eat'' by placing one end of their body in sunlight and another in shadow to generate thermoelectricity]]. To survive the long trips between stars, Outsider ships have an artificial sun, with the many spires of the ship casting shadows so that the crew can feed.
