** Many planetary space probes have a lander and orbiter component. The orbiter puts the lander into an insertion vector and they detach. Quite necessary usually as only Mars (and obviously Earth) has a good enough communication network of satellites to be able to land surface probes without needing an additional built in relay.

* The arcade game ''Xain'D Sleena'' features as a space boss midway through the game a ship of this type, so big that cannot fit in the screen and scrolls through it.

** As well as Sovereign, each race in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has dreadnoughts that are extremely few in number compared to other ships in the various fleets. They're similar in size to a human carrier, but otherwise are much bigger than the ships around them. They also carry kinetic weapons capable of impacting in the multiple-dozen-kiloton range, which is what makes them so special.

The stand out example is the asari super-dreadnought ''Destiny Ascension'', a unique ship that is also the single largest and most powerful warship in the galaxy (Reapers excluded).

* [[BigBad Bodolza]]'s flagship in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''. TheMovie ''Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' not only has an even bigger version, but TWO of them; although Bodolza quickly {{Wave Motion Gun}}s the other one on the grounds that it has [[AmazonBrigade Meltran]] crew, blowing away a chunk of his own fleet too who couldn't get away from the line of fire quickly enough.

* In Literature/''{{Animorphs}}'', while the (human) Animorphs refer to the main Yeerk ship as the Mothership, the Yeerks and Andalites refer to it as the Pool Ship. It acts as a command, heavy transport, and supply ship in contrast to the Blade Ship (a ship of war).
