** Creator/ParadoxInteractive games tend to feature this, most prominently in ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'' and ''VideoGame/VictoriaAnEmpireUnderTheSun'', which take place from 1400-1920, when most of the world's colonial empires were formed in RealLife; ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' adds [[TropesInSpace SPACE]] colonization.

* ''Film/TheBigTrail'' is about a group of pioneers headed across the Oregon Trail to settle the territory. They have to brave the usual hazards, like InjunCountry, the ThirstyDesert, and the snowy Sierra Mountains.

* ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' invokes this with suggestions that the people of the Last City will one day spread out and retake the ruined remains of their homeworld, though it isn't followed up on because [[DeathWorld the entire system outside of the Last City is incredibly hostile to human life]]. In ''Videogame/Destiny2'', after much of humanity was forced out of the City by the Red Legion invasion, the leaders of humanity have started pushing for more expansion, after both realizing that by concentrating in the City they were leaving humanity vulnerable to another attack, and because the Guardians have realized that just because ordinary humans don't have the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Traveler's blessings]], [[BadassNormal they can still fight and hold their own against the monsters beyond the walls.]]

* Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/31/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year Adventures]]'' is a tale of two adventurers crossing Howondaland, the discworld's Africa. They arrive in the white colony of, err, ''[[Usefulnotes/{{Zimbabwe}} Smith-Rhodesia]]'' and note that the settlers, descendants of white Central Continnent emigrants from Ankh-Morpork and [[UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands Sto Kerrig]], are greatly proud of the land they wrested from the natives and settled.

-->This quote is attributed to your ancestor Sir Cecil Smith-Rhodes. People believe it and quote it as if it were holy religious writ. As I understand it, the original pioneers were the Boortrekkers of several centuries ago: several hundred years later, Sir Cecil successfully revived the Boortrekkie spirit and led a new trek out of the Transvaal into a new country. And Smith-Rhodesia is all around us as we travel. Mariella is seeking to leave S-R behind us and cross the state line into the Transvaal. Where of course your family home is. This land is merely named after your family. [[note]]The quote in RealLife is from Ian Smith, the last white ruler of Rhodesia before it became Zimbabwe; he was seeking to evoke the spirt of national founder, victorian imperial adventurer Sir Ceciul Rhodes. A very marginal canonical character in the Discworld is called Smith-Rhodes; Pessimal's take on things gives her and her family a backstory in "Africa"[[/note]]

* An interesting case in ''[[ChoiceOfGames Planetary Quarantine]]''. All planets are settled by STL {{Sleeper Starship}}s. A few days before waking up the crew and the passengers, a team of carefully-chosen and anonymous experts is woken up to go through the minds and belongings of everyone else for contraband. The idea is that the powers-that-be don't want any of Earth's "baggage" from ending up in its off-world colonies. This includes such ideas as religion, class differences, racism, etc. Any inappropriate property is incinerated, and any unwanted ideas (which somehow got through screening back on Earth) are "corrected" with appropriate tech. Communications with Earth are carefully screened in order to prevent the public back on Earth from knowing the truth. However, the point of the game is that, as you find out, it may be already too late, as contraband items and ideas have already made their way to the new worlds. It's up to you how you want to react to that.
