** The TARDIS itself definitely qualifies, [[BiggerOnTheInside just not on the outside.]] Its exact inner size is variable, but we know that it's large enough to contain an Eye of Harmony, a [[Precursor Time Lord]] power source built from a nearly-dead star in a perpetual state of gravitational collapse. The Doctor once claimed that if the TARDIS ever tried to land without its shell, the ship's true weight would crack the surface of the Earth. And even before that, he'd previously said that the TARDIS is, for all intents and purposes, infinite.

** The TARDIS itself probably is this, [[BiggerOnTheInside just not on the outside.]] Its exact inner size is left deliberately unclear, but the Doctor one claimed that its true weight would crack the surface of the Earth.

*** A fifth shows up in "Chronicle of a Return", surprising Paperinik because he thought they only had one. Much to his horror, the Evronians there explain him that [[spoiler:they do it ''regularly'': whenever the population of one grows too much they build one or turn a planet into one, divide their population in two, and then the two spaceship go their separate ways, ready to repeat the process when the population grows too much again]].

Also effectively confirming that Xadhoom ''had'' destroyed two Evronian planet spaceships... But maybe not the original]].

* In ''Literature/{{Remnants}}'', the humans who awaken when the ship reaches a destination initially think they've landed on a bizarre alien world. They soon discover it's a massive spaceship with artificial environments; its sentient ([[GoMadFromTheIsolation and unfortunately crazy]]) AI brought them aboard as a curiosity. The dimensions of the ship are later given as about 100 x 150 miles.

* In ''Literature/{{Remnants}}'', the eighty humans who awaken blast off in a slapped-together rocket with experimental [[HumanPopsicle stasis technology]] in hopes of surviving when the ship reaches a destination an asteroid hits Earth. Those who wake up initially think that they've landed on a bizarre alien world. They soon discover that it's actually a massive spaceship with artificial environments; its sentient ([[GoMadFromTheIsolation and unfortunately crazy]]) AI AI, [[OneBadMother Mother]], brought them aboard as a curiosity.

* Creator/EdmondHamilton gives us [[http://thenostalgialeague.com/olmag/hamilton-thundering-worlds.html Thundering Worlds]], in which every planet in the solar system is outfitted with nuclear rockets and flown to another solar system to escape our dying sun. Of course, then they pass by some [[OhCrap hostile aliens and give them the same idea...]]

* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' series, the Pierson's Puppeteers are a race of cowards, and the only Puppeteers humans have met are insane-- because no sane Puppeteer would trust his life to something so fragile as a spaceship. So when they discover a massive wave of radiation approaching their home system, they leave it behind... but take their planets with them. They put them in orbit around each other (see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klemperer_rosette Klemperer Rosette]] on TheOtherWiki) and accelerated them to just under lightspeed, heading out of the galaxy. Because humans have faster than light starships (which Puppeteers are too sane to use), they expect humans to greet them at their destination, the Clouds of Magellan.
