* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': ''TabletopGame/AKlingonChallenge'' has much the same gameplay mechanics and presentation as ''TabletopGame/{{Atmosfear}}'', the first VCR board game to be a real hit. That said, ''A Klingon Challenge'' actually includes several gameplay mechanics that would later find their way into the first major ''Atmosfear'' overhaul, ''The Harbingers''.

*** ''Scion'' itself has a couple of alternate settings: the campaign in ''Scion: Ragnarok'' takes place in a setting where only NorseMythology is true, as opposed to the basic ''Scion'' setting where AllMythsAreTrue, and ''Scion Companion'' offers a historical setting in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

*** With ''Shards of the Exalted Dream'', ''Exalted'' has two different variants of ''Exalted'' [-IN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE!-] No, seriously. The cover even has the Scarlet Empress doing her best impression of [[Franchise/MassEffect a certain Spectre]], plus another version who's a space barbarian queen with [[ChainsawGood autoklaves]] behind her throne. The two variants are Heaven's Reach, which plays space for grandeur and size, and [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Gunstar Autochthonia]], which is a lot more claustrophobic. ''Shards'' also includes The Modern Age, ''Exalted'' in a modern setting, and Burn Legend, which is basically ''Exalted'' as a video fighting game.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' despite the name, this game, as a whole,, averts the trope. The game is one of the earliest examples of steampunk. Making a role-playing game based on late 19th century science fiction and historical late 19th century was a new idea, not an existing idea put in space. However the adventure Twenty thousand Leagues Through Martian Skies in Challenge 74 is Jules Vernes’ Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea recycled in the Martian atmosphere.
