*** In lieu of that second failure, earlier Shuttle flights were looked at again and reassessed for risk. It was estimated that early flights should have failed about 1 in 10 times, and the likelihood of staving off failure until Challenger was just 6%!

** It should be noted that while Imperial ships are newer, and their capital ships have more powerful weapons than those available to the Rebels, the Imperial design is extremely utilitarian. While most Rebel fighters are equipped with some form of bomb or torpedo, shield-generators, and hyperdrives to make them durable, versatile, and self-sufficient, the most common of the Empire's TIE models have none of these, as pilots are expendable for the Empire and it was cheaper to make ships without them.

Empire's TIE models have none of these, as pilots are expendable for as far as the Empire is concerned and it was cheaper to make ships without them.just quickly restock the losses than design something with more survivability.

** A notable exception to the Rebels' rule of cast-off fighters is the X-wing; the fighter's company Incom originally designed it for the Empire as a state-of-the-art fighter, but the ''entire design team'' defected to the Rebel Alliance, and brought the X-wing along with them. As a result, the X-wing is used almost exclusively by the Rebels. While it isn't the most modern fighter on the block, it's still more than enough to go up against the Empire's [=TIEs=].

* ''VideoGame/RebelGalaxy'' is rather rusted. And you start out with an obsolete ship you inherited from your smuggler aunt Juno.

Removed probable sinkhole to Thomas the Tank Engine. Reworded caption as best I could.

* The Teladi ships in ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X3: Terran Conflict]]'' are basically flying rust buckets, assembled in sweatshop shipyards. [[MightyGlacier They sure can take a beating, though.]] The [[SpacePirates Pirate]] and [[{{Yakuza}} Yaki]] factions have old, repainted and modified versions of the [[TheAlliance Commonwealth]] ships, and capital ships assembled from the rusting ([[YouFailPhysicsForever in space]]) remains of old cargo ships, welded together. The Argon ships also have some shades of this, at least on their fighters - the ships shown visible signs of wear, rust, and bad welds.

* Downplayed compared to the [[Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture book]], but still present in ''Animation/TheMysteryOfTheThirdPlanet'', despite being set in a bright Communist future. In the first scene with the starship the cargo lift is misbehaving, throwing containers back at loading robots. TheEeyore captain keeps saying "''Pegasus'' will never fly." (The film doesn't mention the starship is an obsolete courier saved from the scrapyard by leasing it to the zoo.) When Alice and her farther are first attacked by pirate robots, the captain can't help them, because he is [[PlotDrivenBreakdown busy fixing the hovercraft]]. And every time the heroes capture enemy robots, the captain dreams of disassembling them for spare parts. ** One of its live-action sequels, ''Literature/LilacSphere'', has a GenerationShip (with all its crew long dead from HatePlague) that's been in space around 40 000 years. Its hull looks like a sponge and lights don't work, but the air is still breathable. Though ''Pegasus'' is more of a CoolStarship in this sequel.
