** ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. Season 3 saw the introduction of the Astrometrics lab, which also helped avert the TwoDSpace trope via a wraparound holographic wall screen. As per usual for this trope, it would be used to provide exposition visually.

** Similar plotting boards are seen in ''Film/ANewHope'' during the Battle of Yavin, and in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'' inside the rebel Hoth base. Although, since the boards are simply pieces of glass with unmoving lines in them, it's debatable how useful they are. ''A New Hope'' also has a (ridiculously specialized) circular table that shows the Death Star's position.

** Their later game ''VideoGame/{{DEFCON}}'' goes the whole hog and makes a complete game out of the exact same thing. It also plays heavily on the "NightmareFuel" aspect of the ''WarGames'' board mentioned above, completed with mentions of the megadeath body count each bomb causes and, for those who didn't turn the sound off and can hear it, increasingly depressing music and sick and sobbing people huddled in the bunker in the background, it being a tribute to the movie.
