-> ''When a Stellar Bomb is triggered, very little will happen at first -and then a spark, will pop into existence, and it will hang for an instant, hovering in space and then, it will split into two, and those will split again, and again, and again. Detonation beyond all imagining - the big bang on a small scale. A new star born out of a dying one. I think it will be beautiful...''

* The very first ''SpaceQuest'' starts off with Roger Wilco working on a science ship that is carrying one of these devices. The problem is, the device can also be used to cause a star to go nova, which is what the [[SpacePirates Sariens]] try to do after boarding the ship and killing everyone on it (except Roger who was sleeping in a broom closet). The sequel reveals that the person behind the Sariens, Sludge Vohaul, the evil clone of Dr. Slash Vohaul, the designer of the device, wanted to destroy Xenon ForTheEvulz and claim the credit for the invention.

** After Hal destroys the Green Lantern corps, the Sun-Eater is killing Earth's sun in ''ComicBook/TheFinalNight'', and he does a HeroicSacrifice that saves it and restores the damage. In the process, it shines green for a day.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' had an episode based on the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Planet Jackers]]," who ''steal planets'' to drop into the sun their home planet orbits, in hopes that their burning will continue to fuel the sun. We didn't get to see if it actually works, but presumably it does since there's evidence that they'd been doing it for a while.

Either through natural causes or galactic vandals who go around StarKilling [[ForTheEvulz for fun]] and profit, the local star is set to die; this usually involves YouFailPhysicsForever even ''with'' liberal uses of {{Phlebotinum}}. [[labelnote:(Science!)]]Most people have no conception of how vast a sun is, nor what happens during a star's life as a main-sequence star. Our sun is 30% brighter now than when the Earth formed, and some time in the next 0.5-1.1 billion years it will grow bright enough that the Earth will become uninhabitable in its current orbit. Said orbit, however, is projected to change, making Earth gradually veer ''further'' from the sun, allowing it to stay in the habitable zone for more time than originally predicted. In either case, our sun has billions of years left before it leaves the main sequence (and it's not quite massive enough to ever go nova).[[/labelnote]] You can imagine the desperation a planetary civilization will feel when it's ''their'' turn to see their sun die. Cue an attempt at SolarCPR. A [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien sufficiently advanced]] civilization may develop a MagicAntidote or solar-scale WorldHealingWave that can stop this from happening (or at least discover a group of aliens who do).

* In ''TheWorldAtTheEndOfTime'', by Frederik Pohl, when star formation is halting across the Universe Wan-To, the entity described there [[StarfishAliens who lives inside stars]], forms new ones using the available gas. Later, he's described to have created ''two galaxies'' when all the others are beginning to fade out.

* One of the four TV movies that made up "season 1" of ''{{Lexx}}'', entitled ''Supernova'', featured the ancient, and at that point uninhabited, home planet of the Brunnen-G, in a system of binary suns. A huge automated "stabilizing" device on the planet kept the mutual orbit of the two suns stable, and when it is shut down, the orbit decays and the two stars collide with a cataclysmic explosion.
