**Possibly the most extreme examples: Klongheim and Parsfon, the fully FTL-capable homes of rival robot civilizations traveling the universe in search of their rightful masters, with dimensions measured in [[UpToEleven light-months]]. It's strongly suggested that these got their start as remnants of some cosmic disaster or other that weren't so much built as colonized.

** Although the troper writing this is not that far into the series himself, he has heard that there are books with ships whose length is measured in [[UpToEleven LIGHTMONTHS]]!

* ''Literature/TerreEnFuite'' (''Fleeing Earth'') is a novel by François Bordes where Earth (with the Moon in natural gravitational tow) and Venus are turned into giant spaceships in order to allow humanity to escape the Sun going nova. Initially, the plan is to wait out the explosion behing Jupiter and come back. However, scientist then determine that the Sun will not return to its former state, so they have to move the planets to another system... and then again when the first one turns out to have a LostColony of humans.

** First, the Daleks ''attempted'' it in "The Dalek Invasion of Earth," but failed. The second, and somewhat more successful of these, was Zanak from "The Pirate Planet," a hollowed-out planet with massive transmat engines...it could materialize around another planet and capture ''everything'' from it, leaving behind a tiny husk, which its captain could collect as a trophy.

* In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', the original inhabitants of Mars drove themselves to extinction converting their planet into a giant spaceship.... "[[RuleOfCool Because it's cool]]". [[spoiler: A similar thing happened to Mercury, which leads to an awesome dogfight.]]

There's big spaceships, there's ''[[MileLongShip gigantic]]'' spaceships, and then there's these: a space ship (or station) that's as big as a small planet or large moon. In space, you have no external gravity to contend with, so it's possible to build some truly humongous structures like this. Alternatively, you may just want to strap some engines onto an ''actual'' planet or moon and set off, although this may require SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology.

SufficientlyAdvancedTechnology. If the ship's big enough, it may even have its natural gravity be big enough to keep things rooted to its surface, though usually not enough to make an earth-like atmosphere (like, say, our moon).
