* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/TheVorGame'', the heroes are hopelessly outnumbered when the commander says, "Whatinhell's that? It's too big to be that fast. It's too fast to be that big." It's the gunship rescue, is what it is, lead by the Barrayaran Empire's newest, biggest, shiniest battleship, still on it's shakedown cruise. Jointly commanded by the Empire's senior military officer and ''TheEmperor'' himself.

*** This, unfortunately, fails in a later episode, where the ''Discovery'' comes to the aid of the USS ''Gagarin'', which is being pounded by Klingon ships that have been equipped with cloaking devices. A Klingon ship launches two torpedoes at the crippled ''Gagarin''. Lorca orders the ''Discovery'' placed between the ''Gagarin'' and the torpedoes, but they manage to intercept only one. The other one obliterates the ''Gagarin'' This is when Starfleet decides that something needs to be done to counter the cloaking device.

** In the ''[[Series/StarTrekDiscovery Discovery]]'' episode "[[Recap/StarTrekDiscoveryS1E04TheButchersKnifeCaresNotForTheLambsCry The Butcher's Knife Cares not for the Lamb's Cry]]", the USS ''Discovery'' uses the experimental spore drive to appear right above the mining colony, as the Klingon birds-of-prey are preparing to finish it off, and blasting several ships before they figure out what's going on. Rather than fight them conventionally, Captain Lorca decides to teach the Klingons a lesson, while showing off his new toy. He lets the Klingons get very close, while strafing the hull of the ''Discovery'', then has the ship "spore" out, leaving behind a cluster of primed photon torpedoes that obliterate the rest of the Klingon force. All this takes a few seconds. By the time the colonists look up to see what happened, the ''Discovery'' is gone, and they're left wondering who saved them.

** During the battle for Babylon 5's independence, Babylon 5 and two cruisers manage to hold back an [=EarthForce=] fleet loyal to the {{President|Evil}} (losing one of their cruisers in the process). Cue jumpgate opening and a large [=EarthForce=] fleet arriving, larger than the one they just barely repelled. Then cue ''more'' jumpgates, with three Minbari ''Sharlin''-class warcruisers, a ''White Star'', and a ''very'' unhappy Delenn.
