In media, spacecraft and starships (especially the CoolStarship) [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior revel in their unnecessary use of on-board space.]] Passageways will be broad with high ceilings. The bridge will be an expansive multilevel complex paneled with floating viewscreens and control panels. Crew quarters will be as spacious as a suite at the Plaza.

In media, both smaller spacecraft and larger starships (especially the CoolStarship) [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior revel in their unnecessary use of on-board space.]] Passageways will be broad with high ceilings. The bridge will be an expansive multilevel complex paneled with floating viewscreens and control panels. Crew quarters will be as spacious as a suite at the Plaza.

* ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''. Really, it's a plot necessity if you're going to have a 49 foot, 11 1/2 inch woman rampaging through it.
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE''. The ''Axiom'' is a perfect example of this. Though it is intended for people to live on it as long as needed and taking up all of Earth's remaining resources so you would imagine it should look nice. The ''Axiom'' is specifically the flagship of the line, and all the ships are intended to transport a broad cross section of Earth's population. You can get away with much less pleasant surroundings for a careful selected crew than for just any random million people.

* ''BountyHamster''. The luxury starship Humongous, with "ballrooms the size of football fields! Football fields the size of planets! (if they were flat)". Unfortunately the ship is so expensive, only half a dozen people in the universe can afford to travel on it.
* The Cosmopolitan in ''IlEtaitUneFois''''...Space'', a large luxury liner RecycledInSpace complete with a hangar to launch much smaller ships, ballrooms, a greenhouse, lookouts for passengers, a big, spacious [[TheBridge bridge]], and very likely countless stuff that does not appear in the cartoon.

* The ''Normandy'' from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' is more spacious than is probably necessary, but the ''Normandy 2'' from [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 the sequel]] is absurdly spacious, more so than most houses. Shepard and Miranda have especially luxurious quarters. This trope is lampshaded when Shepard mentions to the ship's AI that his/her quarters ''are'' larger than those on other warships; the AI claims that, as the ''Normandy 2'' was built by civilians, comfort was taken into account.

** Andalites' Dome ships, as is somewhat implied by the name, include a domed park-like section (which doubles as a source of food due to BizarreAlienBiology, making it genuinely useful, albeit probably not useful ''enough'' to justify the trope). It can be ejected from the main body of the ship if necessary.\\\
Note that this is justified by Andalite psychology: Since the species evolved as centaur-like herd animals on open plains, they have even more of a need for open space than humans, with only three cities/spaceports on their entire planet. Prequels portray earlier Andalite ships having holographic skies and grass-carpeted floors. Andalites using other species' vehicles are sometimes mentioned fighting claustrophobia.

*** The ''Heart of Gold'' is a justified example, as it doesn't use anything near a normal drive to get places. The Infinite Improbability Drive works by manipulating probability (or, more specifically, the improbability of the ship's being in a specific location) to essentially teleport the ship to its destination. Because they don't need to spend energy to push the ship against gravity, space conservation would not be high on the list of priorities for building the ship.

** Not entirely unjustified since HumongousMecha in the 20-25 meter range require a lot of hanger space, along with storage for ammunition and spare parts. Those space needs easily dwarf crew accomodations for any reasonably sized crew, so it doesn't cost that much more to add a few small luxuries.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''. Spoofed when Scotty finds himself running for a control terminal which is at the end of a very long hanger bay.

** The same film shows the disadvantages of this trope when GravityScrew causes everything from shuttles to people to start falling down corridors and hangers that have suddenly turned into huge pits.

To clarify, the ships of Jurai are powered by Royal Trees that draws energy from multiple dimensions from their roots, which are direct descendants of Tsunami, one of the goddesses which created the multi-dimensional ''Tenchi Muyo'' universe. Along with obscene amounts of speed and firepower, a Royal Tree can generate a pocket dimension for its crew. Like the [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]], a Jurai treeship is MUCH BiggerOnTheInside than it looks on the outside. Essentially, the interior is pretty much as big as the owner wants it to be. A full size luxury resort and hotel, complete with wildlife park? No problem!\\\
Hey, if they are advance enough to build the galaxies most powerful spaceships out of nothing but WOOD without using nails and screws or even glue, and the trees used to power their ships have the ability to put up force fields ''wings'' that are so powerful that not even another goddess at the same level as Tsunami cannot even comprehend how it was done in over 20,000 years she descended, what can't they do?
** Outside of a couple of exceptions, they can't beat Ryo-ohki.
