Added DiffLines:

* For some reason, ''Literature/StarTrekNewFrontier'' had an entire story arc about an amnesiac Captain Calhoun spending several months marooned on a pre-spaceflight alien planet, in a remote region that was blatantly TheWildWest dressed up with a bit of CallARabbitASmeerp. Eventually it turned out that one of the villains was in league with the main antagonists of the series, which enabled him to be rescued, but the story still ended up being a bit of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment.

* The mysterious ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' definitely seems to be going for this. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uG8V9dRqSsw announcement trailer]] channelled the Western landscape by starting on a desert planet that could easily be mistaken for a locale in Arizona or Nevada if not for the faint AlienSky in the background, all set to "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" by Creator/JohnnyCash. Thematically, the game also seems to be focusing on the motifs of exploration and colonization over the tragedy and romance of SpaceOpera, which was evoked in the [[Franchise/MassEffect original trilogy]].

* ''NewHorizon'' is generally a western [[RecycledInSpace ON A WHOLE NEW PLANET!]], but nowhere is this more evident than Trapper Town.

* ''{{Rifts}}'' features a number of SpaceWestern themes in the "New West" setting, although they're more limited in scope (pretty much the same places as the ''old'' WildWest).

* ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' dabbles in this in places, with settlers on the outskirts of Earthling territories frequently dispensing their own justice, tousling with the natives and constantly having to battle off corporate interests looking to take out the little guy with hired guns. There are even Rocket Rangers who either act as TheCavalry. This is most common on Venus, Ganymede and in the Asteroid Belt, but can be found in other locales too.
