* In Creator/StephenBaxter's ''Manifold'' trilogy, this is a recurring theme. ''Literature/ManfoldTime'' and ''Literature/ManifoldSpace'' opens with Reid Malenfant giving a speech advocating that humanity colonize the galaxy using self-replicating terraforming scout starships; for the cost of just one ship, they can shoot it to Alpha Centuari where it will break up asteroids to build more scout ships to investigate and terraform promising solar systems. In ''Manifold Space'', the discovery of an asteroid in Jupiter orbit glowing in the infrared spectrum leads to the discovery that robotic terraformers are ''here'', though [[spoiler: it is later subverted in that the 'Gaijin' robots are merely a very exotic iron-based form of mechanical life]]

''Series/StargateSG1'' are what you get when you don't tell one of these machines when to stop. They're a menace to multiple galaxies, and are one of the few threats that can get Earth and the Goa'uld to [[EnemyMine set aside their differences]] and work together.

* In the backstory of the ''VideoGame/{{X}}-Universe'' series Earth built several fleets of self-replicating, artificially intelligent terraforming drones (sometimes described as "Von Neumann machines" in the literature and the opening cinematic of ''X3: Terran Conflict''). [[AIIsACrapshoot Things went pear-shaped]] due to a faulty (or deliberately sabotaged; [[DependingOnTheWriter reports vary]]) software update, most of Earth's colonies were destroyed, and Earth nearly so. The surviving bugged drones evolved into the games' Xenon, which seek to "[[ColonyDrop terraform]]" all biological life out of existence.
