* The novel-based ''StarTrekExpandedUniverse'', published by Simon & Schuster, primarily carries forward the future history of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. It's been given full rein over [[Franchise/StarTrek Trek]] stories post-''Nemesis'', as it's likely that version of the [[Franchise/StarTrek Trek]] universe won't appear on-screen again. The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' Expanded Universe most recently includes a fan series called ''[[http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/13.12/startrek.html Star Trek: New Voyages]]'', which is attempting complete the "five year mission" of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the original series]]. It's being supported by a number of people with professional links to the official series runs, most notably Walter Koenig and Creator/GeorgeTakei, who reprise their roles of Chekov and Sulu, respectively.

* ''{{Transformers}}''. A bunchload of comic books. A number of text stories. A handful of {{video game}}s. And that's not even counting that not all the cartoons are in the same {{continuity}}. Many fans are split over what the primary source really is: the original cartoon is named as such by most, but many others choose the original comic series instead, or the British version thereof, with mixing-and-matching becoming increasingly popular. The term ''{{canon}}'' is hard to apply here: It all happened, but didn't all happen in the same timeline. And with all the other [[{{Continuity}} continuities]] created since, it's become an expanded ''multiverse.''

* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has been expanded in fanfic, most thoroughly in the works of author [[Creator/AAPessimal A.A. Pessimal]]. From bare bones and hints in the canon, there is now a fairly fully realised "South Africa", with all the knobs turned UpToEleven in approved Pratchett mode. Rimwards Howondaland is stuck in TheApartheidEra, but complicated by the existence of other sentient species as well as human. This is explored in tales such as ''[[Fanfic/TheBlackSheep The Black Sheep]]'' and ''[[Fanfic/WhyAndWere Why And Were]]''. Elsewhere, the Foggy Islands, referenced in the canon, have become a more realised set of glimpses of a Discworld UsefulNotes/NewZealand, and a place called '''Aceria''' is emerging as another troublesome and quaint former colony, stretching, as its national anthem tells us, ''from Hub to shining sea''. Aceria is mainly an {{Expy}} of UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}, but (just as Agatea is a portmanteau of Japan, China and Thailand) is expanding to have a marked streak of {{Eagleland}} to it. Aceria has a troublesome and stroppy [[UsefulNotes/{{France}} Quirmian-speaking]] enclave to it, and has given the Disc "Country and Widdershins" music and line-dancing. Sports include hockey played on ice, and a very odd form of [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball Foot-The-Ball]] with strange rules which is played in full body armour.
