* ''GalaxyQuest'': According to the {{Novelization}}, the events in outer space are happening in another galaxy.

to:

* ''GalaxyQuest'': ''Film/GalaxyQuest'': According to the {{Novelization}}, the events in outer space are happening in another galaxy.



* Downplayed in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. For example, while the Andromeda-based civilizations of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' are capable of traveling to Earth if need be, it's implied to be rather inconvenient to actually do so. Also, while each of the Nine Realms from ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and its sequels are located in a different galaxy, convenient travel between them is only possible thanks to fixed portals connected by the cosmic nimbus Yggdrasil; when Asgard's portal is out of commission at the beginning of ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', Odin has to resort to a dangerous method involving dark energy to transport Thor to Earth.



* In the SectorGeneral books, a stricken ship from a newly discovered race (called, oddly, the Ians) is discovered to be from another galaxy.
* The original book of ''ThisIslandEarth'' had the friendly aliens decide to pull their forces back "out of this galaxy".

If an entire civilization is capable of this, expect them to be pretty high up on the [[AbusingTheKardashevScaleForFunAndProfit Kardashev scale]].

* The movie tagline and the {{novelization}} say that ''ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' is 3 million light years from home, so he must be from another galaxy.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/StarRuler2'' allows players to fight across multiple galaxies should they desire. Due to performance issues though, it is usually best to just keep it to one high star count galaxy or a handful of small star count galaxies.

* ''MarvelComics'': Most of the major [[TheEmpire space empires]] have their own galaxy. The Skrulls have Andromeda, the Kree have the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Shi'Ar have their own fictional galaxy.

* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ming The Merciless]] from ''Film/FlashGordon'' is implied to rule the entire universe. Every thousand years, he test every inhabited planet with natural disasters and wipes them out if they recognize that an alien is causing them. This would explain why the only planets we see besides Earth are Mongo and its [[BabyPlanet various moons]].

** A ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode, however, proves that SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale (or Kids' Show Writers [[TheyJustDidntCare Just Don't Care]] About Scale, anyway.) The Rangers are traveling at light speed to the Farthest Galaxy. Now, the distance to the farthest known is over '''thirteen billion light years.''' But wait, the place they ''named'' the Farthest Galaxy might actually not be that far, you say? Well, the ''nearest'' galaxy, good ol' Andromeda, would be a 2.5 million year trip at light speed. Worse, "light years" ''are'' mentioned. You'd think even if they didn't know the math, they'd know that light speed plus light years equals a team of octogenarians with attitudes.
