* Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse:
** ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoNewAdventuresFirstFrontier First Frontier]]'', set in New Mexico and Nevada in 1957, covers a lot of UFO mythology bases, including the Roswell incident.
** The Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel ''Devil Goblins from Neptune''.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek "Dalek"]], the mileometer from the Roswell ship is seen in a museum of alien artifacts. In the same episode, Van Statten claims that [[ETGaveUsWiFi alien tech from the incident ended up creating Broadband]].
** The Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse has multiple and contradictory takes on Roswell, most recently in the animated ''Dreamland''. (Older instances include the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''First Frontier'' and the Literature/PastDoctorAdventures novel ''Devil Goblins from Neptune''.) It '''is''' ''[[NegativeContinuity Doctor Who]]'', after all; the Time-War and universal cracks have pretty much left us with a great big TimeyWimeyBall (and even before then, the show favoured BroadStrokes).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Dust}}'': Super-tech reverse-engineered from the wreck of a crashed UFO found on the Antarctic provide [[StupidJetpackHitler the Axis]] (who deposed Hitler from power) with the capacity to turn the Russian campaign into something more manageable, allowed them to succeed when they performed Operation Sealion, and at the time of the "present day" on the game's setting they have now started a campaign of limited ground warfare on the coasts of the United States. The best hope the United States has is their own super-tech, engineered from that which they have captured from the Axis and a recent UFO crash on Roswell, New Mexico...

Regardless of what actually happened (TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roswell_UFO_Incident has a good overview]] of what's known), the idea of a crashed alien spacecraft--and a subsequent government coverup - has become permanently associated with the city of Roswell in the popular imagination. The fame and ambiguity of the original incident have inspired every SpeculativeFiction series ever to [[ExternalRetcon explain]] (or just [[HistoricalInJoke make an oblique reference to]]) "what ''really'' happened", with varying amounts of seriousness. The town itself, meanwhile, has capitalized on this, building a lucrative tourist industry around the event and aliens in general.

** Turns out not only was it the same event, but Max himself was involved in the Roswell incident. As revealed in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', Max was the one who encountered the aliens, who were actually Blukic and Driba, and aided in their escape when they got captured.

* ''Series/AgentCarter'' subverts the circumstances of the event, making the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU's]] version of it an explosion of [[{{Unobtainium}} Zero Matter]] instead of a crashed ship of any kind.

On July 7, 1947, personnel from the Roswell Army Air Field recovered materials from a ranch outside Roswell, New Mexico. Their initial press release stated that the materials resembled a "[[FlyingSaucer flying disc]]"; later the same day, they issued a correction that it was in fact a weather balloon, which is quite the switch.

* TabletopGame/SecretsOfTheThirdReich: The members of [[OperationBlank Program]] [[CaptainPatriotic "Sentinel Of Freedom"]] (essentially CaptainAmerica [[{{Expy}} Expies]]) are given their powers with the "Roswell Cocktail", reverse-engineered from the crash's tech. The British HeroUnit Black Jack is a {{Cyborg}} made with salvaged mechanics from the ship (ironically because [[WeCanRebuildHim his body fatally rejected the Cocktail]]).
