* ''ComicStrip/BuckRogers'' and its imitator ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'' are the {{Trope Codifier}}s, though the former began as an AfterTheEnd story and only moved into space and the latter originally stayed on the planet Mongo, where Flash, Dale Arden and Dr. Zarkoff were stranded. (The story takes place in the present day.) However, the popular image and later iterations of the strip have Flash Gordon adventuring in space. ''Star Wars'' began after Lucas failed to obtain the rights to ''Flash''. King Features, realizing their mistake, made the ''Film/FlashGordon'' film after the wild success of ''Star Wars''.

* ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}'' is an epic about a colony ship, ''Intrepid'', trying to leave the insanity of slower-than-light life in Sol, only to run into even bigger problems and ultimately SleepThroughTheApocalypse and land in a more typical FasterThanLightTravel setting.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', which has the unusual distinction of being both a SpaceOpera [[SpaceWestern and a]] [[TheWestern Horse Opera]]. However, ''Firefly'' is only a borderline Space Opera, as it has no aliens and according to WordOfGod is set in a universe with no faster-than-light travel (although this is difficult to reconcile with some of the on-screen events).
