** The Shi'ar empire of X-Men fame have more similarities to the romans, with the leader of the Imperial Guard being called Praetor, latin-like words like Majestor/Majestrix and the tendency of having [[TheCaligula extravagant, bloodthirsty rulers]] like D'Ken and Vulcan.

* Literal Space Romans: the Empirians in ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' are an exact cultural copy of the Romans including the gladiator matches. The similarity with Romans is never explained even when the planet is said to be located in another galaxy. Another case are the Hyperians who are Space Egyptians although much more brutal and animalistic.

*** They are shown to be quite emotional, although not to the extent that Vulcans really are on the inside. Basically, they found the middle ground between total logic and raw emotion (like any sane person).

** As far as player-based alliances go, the Red Alliance are literal Space Russians, formed by Russian-speaking players to have an alliance they could call their own. They even had their own Great Patriotic War when they got pushed back to their last star system in what's been [[http://eve-history.net/wiki/index.php/Red_Alliance explicitly compared]] to the Siege of Leningrad, only to fight back and triumph.

** The Thukkers are Space {{Romani}}. They are a Minmatar tribe that, unlike the others, remained nomadic rather than settling down on planets, and they refusal to integrate and abandon their way of life has led to discrimination against them from the other tribes. Those Thukkers who settle on planets often experience an identity crisis, feeling alienated from both their fellow planetside Minmatar and from the "Great Caravans" who they feel no longer represent their interests.

** The CONCORD Assembly is the Space UsefulNotes/UnitedNations, albeit a fair bit more powerful (they maintain the SpacePolice) and competent.

* The Empire in Isaac Asimov's ''Literature/{{Foundation}}'' series of novels is very, very Roman by design. Asimov was inspired to write the ''Foundation'' series as a parallel to Gibbons's ''The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire''. To wit, it starts out as the Kingdom Trantor, then is for some time the Republic of Trantor, and later becomes the Galactic Empire. In its decline, it even gets its own Belisarius stand-in, Bel Riose.

''Prior'' to its decline ''Pebble in the Sky'' uses the Galactic Empire's Roman-ness by having it play Space Rome to Earth's Space Israel.

* The SeriesBattlestarGalacticaReimagined is ''incredibly'' guilty of this, with a very Earth-like civilization (that bounces between the 1930s and the mid 21st century technology- and culture-wise) that uses the Latin script and is based on Greco-Roman mythology, yet for some obscure reason takes place over a hundred millenia years ago. Albeit the remainder of the human race resettles on our Earth, they voluntarily leave all technology behind in the process. AlienSpaceBats are responsible for humanity not only recreating colonial culture 150,000 years later, but also (for the Mediterranean offshoot) reinventing their script and belief system for no good reason whatsoever.
