* In the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse, the Gorn Hegemony makes use of these, and fields specialized mine-launcher ships. One such vessel causes trouble for the Literature/StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers in the story “Where Time Stands Still”.
** The Cheka, a race appearing in the Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch, employ space mines during a battle in the novel ''This Gray Spirit''.
* A number of space mines appear in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, where they are particularly useful when placed along the exit points of hyperspace routes. Besides the usual exploding types, [[ComicBook/XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]] encountered a variant that used a gravity well generator to snatch fighters from hyperspace before triggering an ion pulse to disable them.

* [=AKVs=] in TranshumanSpace are not exactly mines, but similar enough: they are AI-controlled missiles that can float in ambush until a [[InsistentTerminology craft]] flies near and then attack.

* ''VideoGame/WingCommander'' has Porcupine Space Mines (proximity, limited homing); there were also turret mines (miniature laser platforms), high explosive contact mines and viral mines (broadcast virus-infested transmissions to infect and shut down ship computer systems).

In the first game, they even had ''[[AsteroidThicket Mine Thickets]]'' alongside the regular Asteroidal ones, [[ThatOneLevel and have been the bane of many a player during certain missions]].

* ''VideoGame/HeartOfTheSwarm'' has a level set in an AsteroidThicket that also contains a large amount of mag-mines. When they detect an enemy, they activate and fly straight towards the ship, but are nice enough to have a great big laser designator to show where they're going. And fortunately, the Hyperion can perform short-range warp jumps to dodge or sidestep them.

* ''StarFleetBattles''. Ships can "roll a mine out a hatch" and leave it to blow up a ship pursuing them. Mines can be set to accept only certain sizes of ships as targets. Major space installations often had minefield belts protecting them. Some of the mine types available:
