* The Nexus in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''. Kirk is trapped inside it and presumed dead, but when Jean-Luc Picard enters it decades later he meets up with Kirk who from his own point of view had just arrived there. Told that they can go anywhere in time and space should they choose to leave the Nexus, they stop the villain Soran before he can even execute his plan to blow up a star.

* Timeheart in Creator/DianeDuane's ''YoungWizards'' series, although you can't get there until you die. (At least, not permanently. Wizards are allowed to visit every once in a while.)

*** [[spoiler:The effect of its redemption was to fix the influence of its evil self to a finite amount. As the other powers are infinite, or - well, at least a much larger finity, the net effect seems to be that it's slowly decreasing, and the universe gets gradually better.

* A strange version of this occurs in ''{{Achron}}''. There's a section of the timeline that's hard to reach if you don't already know of its existence: [[FanNickname "The Beach"]]. It's a completely empty version of the map you're playing; a region in the future where causality from the present never reached. This is probably the only ''mechanical'' version of the place beyond time (other video games simply create an extra, perfectly normal level and give it some backstory).
