Zonama Sekot in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' is a case of attaching absolutely enormous hyperdrive engines to a [[GeniusLoci (sapient)]] Earthlike planet.


Added DiffLines:

** ''The Crystal Star'' has Worldships, artificial planetoids with hyperdrive engines. They're large enough that people on the surface can mistake them for planets and even have their own synthetic "suns", but are small enough to rely on artificial gravity.

Added DiffLines:

* Alpha from ''Film/ValerianAndTheCityOfAThousandPlanets''. It started as our world's ISS, then other nations of the world expanded it with their own vessels, then alien vessels from all over the universe expanded it further. It size and mass started causing a serious problem to Earth and thus Alpha was freed from its orbit.

Added DiffLines:

** On a smaller scale, ork roks are asteroids and other large celestial bodies that have been hollowed out, filled with orks, sealed against vacuum, and fitted with ginormous engines to be sent through the Warp. Once close to a planet, they then serve as one-time DropPods.

Added DiffLines:

* The climax of ''Webcomic/AMiracleOfScience'' features [[spoiler: Mars' moon Deimos]] being used in this fashion, in this case [[spoiler: to provide a credible threat to back up the main characters and get the BigBad to stand down]]. It's also a clever use of ExactWords, as [[spoiler: Mars is under treaty to never extend military force beyond the orbit of Deimos. If Deimos can move...]]

** 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. The dimensions of the ship are later given as about 100 x 150 miles.

* 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...]]
