* ''Homeworld'' has a whole wagon caravan to the stars. Namely the Kushan fleet wich gets contineually expanded through the game, as the player fights their way through the galaxy to reclaim Hiigara, the epinomus homeworld of their people. There is also the Mothership, serving as the base of operations, and the only vessel which must stay alive through the game.

* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' aka ''{{Robotech}}'' features this in a way when Macross City is rescued after a "[[OurWormholesAreDifferent space fold]]" accident and housed in the titular ship; the successor TV shows, ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' and ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' take place on actual, literal stellar wagon trains (complete with collapsible roofs) intended to colonize planets.

The ship is often enough, as in WagonTrain, a [[SettlingTheFrontier colonization/settlement]] effort that [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption never quite gets to its destination]], at least until the finale. In this case, the ship is likely to be a [[GenerationShip massive, self-sustained, multigenerational community]] - essentially a mobile city in space, which allows making use of tropes typical to both TheQuest and TheSiege basic plots as the heroes both have a goal in mind and are concerned with protecting their way of life until it can be reached.

* Book one in the ''Star Trek: New Earth'' series is called "Wagon Train to the Stars". The book is nothing less than LITERALLY that. A group of civilian settlers embark on a nine month journey at warp two to the Occult system to colonize the planet Belle Terre as a new colony. At the last second, Starfleet decides to get involved, giving the settlers a four ship UFP escort led by (of course) the starship Enterprise under the command of the original space cowboy, Jim Kirk. In fact, the only way that the Council, and Spock (who was in command of the Enterprise as this takes place between TMP and TWOK) would even leave Federation space was if Kirk was in command of the Enterprise. The colonists are on Conestoga-class ships (partially designed by Scotty), most of which have Western-style names (i.e. the pathfinder ship is called the Rattlesnake, the hotel/casin vessel is Uncle Jake's Pocket), and when they fell under attack just after reaching the Occult system, they 'sphered the ships' with Kirk saying (and this is a DIRECT quote from the book)"It's an old defensive tactic. Circling the wagons, only in three dimensions instead of two."
