Sometimes, there will be ShinyLookingSpaceships alongside dingier ones; usually these new, [[AsceticAesthetic ascetic and shiny ships]] will belong to the [[TheEmpire Galactic Military]] which has access to constantly churning shipyards and the newest heights of technology while the heroes must survive on surplus gear and homegrown repairs. These shiny looking spaceships, however, can denote that the crew piloting these über-ships is formed of [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy completely green recruits]] with no real combat experience, often led by a [[TheNeidermeyer pompous noble]], while the battered ships are piloted by grizzled veterans who can fly circles around them.

* One of the novelisations of ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' series mentions that the eponymous vessel has been in service for ''500 years!'' The small observation dome on top, where courting couples go to gaze at the stars, was originally used to take navigational fixes.

** Eventually, a Minbari character [[DeadpanSnarker dryly observes]] that if humans were allowed to make such decisions, ''every'' starship would only use the colors grey or green. Suffice to say, even where technology isn't a limiting factor, the humans and the Minbari have ''very'' different cultural preferences to starship design.

** The fact that the Jaeger's opponents, the Kaiju, did not have anything like scars or wounds from Kaiju on Kaiju action was intended to serve as a hint to their [[TheReveal true nature.]]

* Ships made by Lakon Spaceways in ''VideoGame/EliteDangerous'' tend to have a lot of wear on them, especially inside the cockpit, where, if you look around, you can see obvious signs of wear and tear such as chipped and worn pain on the control panel and edges of the seat to obvious signs of wear on the edges of the floor and small cracks and scuffs on maintenance panels on the walls. It goes very well with the very utilitarian aesthetic that said cockpits evoke anyway.

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun'' has overtones of this as well. A lot of maps feature run-down cities in various states of disrepair, and many in-game units are visibly dirty and banged up, particularly in GDI's case. Nod is slightly shinier, but still has elements of this trope.
