* Post-BrainUploading, Samus' former CO Adam in ''MetroidFusion'' is another spaceship guy, although it takes a little while for her to [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay realise]] that it's actually him. Made a little awkward by the later revelation in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' that he was something of a father figure to her when he was alive; now she has a ship for a dad.

* SARA from {{Toonami}} controls the Absolution.

* SARA from {{Toonami}} Creator/{{Toonami}} controls the Absolution.Absolution. A straight example of this trope is played when she gets a full body.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'': The ship's computer is apparently a gynoid. A particularly curious example since she doesn't even walk around, just sits in one room.

* ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' and the titular starship, with her holographic and robotic avatars: Rommie, the ship's AI given an android body. The ship's AI also looks like Rommie, though the two became separate characters to a degree. Most of the High Guard ships of her class seen in the series had female avatars (with the explanation being that humans and a number of other species prefer female avatars), though we have had several on-screen examples of male [=AIs=], usually portrayed by someone who appeared on ''Series/StargateSG1'' or ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' (interestingly, they also tend to be the ones who end up being avatars of more than one ship, either because the AI switches ships or because a new AI is given a deceased AI's appearance).

* EveOnline gives us AURA, the universal AI that acts as the (feminine) voice for your ship. Or rather, every ship, regardless of who is flying it. It's a bit disconcerting to have any ship from a harmless shuttle to a fleet-destroying Titan talk to you in the same calm, female voice.

* SARA from {{Toonami}} controls the Absolution, or at least she did until they both [[BrotherChuck inexplicably disappeared]].
** As of April 27, 2013, [[TheBusCameBack She made her triumphant return!]]
* Only tangentially related, but too funny not to mention: Captain Star of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainStar'' insists that his ship the ''Boiling Hell'' is a he.

* ''VideoGame/TheJourneymanProject 2'' has Arthur, a space''station guy'', created by Dr. Kenneth Farnstien while on board his space station, Amarax. His integration is such that he can feel the craft "like a body", although the station itself has its own feminine ComputerVoice, which Arthur at one point calls "Mom". When you arrive, Farnstien is dead and the station's been hit by a meteor shower [[spoiler: and another time traveler who got there before you pissed him off but good]]. Then, after reading your Biochip files, discovering that he will die in the future, Arthur copies himself to a blank chip you're carrying and becomes your RobotBuddy for the rest of the game.

* Cortana in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', though the ship in question doesn't last as long as she does (although [[PlayerCharacter Master Chief's]] armor is apparently very similar to a spaceship, and the time she inhabits a Halo ring would probably count).
** Serena of ''VideoGame/HaloWars'' as well. And in this case the ship lasts as long as the SpaceshipGirl.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':

Cortana is this for the ''Pillar of Autumn'' in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', though the ship in question doesn't last nearly as long as she does (although does, with her spending most of the game inside [[PlayerCharacter Master Chief's]] armor (although said armor is apparently very similar to a spaceship, and the time she inhabits a Halo ring would probably count).
** Serena of ''VideoGame/HaloWars'' as well.well, this time for the ''Spirit of Fire''. And in this case the ship lasts as long as the SpaceshipGirl.

* VideoGame/SystemShock's Shodan is a space''station'' girl. The sequel gives us Xerxes, a spaceship ''guy'' [[spoiler: who eventually gets hacked and sublimated by a resurrected Shodan, allowing her to ''finally'' be a spaceship girl at last]].
* Averted in ''{{Albion}}'', where the computer of the spaceship Toronto is represented by a masculine android "AI body" known as Ned. Later it turns out there's a whole bunch of armed Neds hidden on the ship in case anyone gets rebellious. At the very end, you see the core AI itself, a very decidedly neuter mechanical thing inside an indestructible black tin.
