* PlanetSpaceship: The Galean Sphere, an asteroid hollowed out and built entirely over by Dark Age of Technology era humanity, with any crew it once had long since abandoning it, though its arcane automated systems still maintain it. At some point, and by unknown means, it drifted into the [[PortalNetwork Eldar Webway]], where it was found by outcasts from [[Characters/Warhammer40000DarkEldar Commorragh]] who were driven out by viscous Kabal politics. They set up a ViceCity there called the Nexus of Shadows, establishing it as a port for the slave trade between many different species, allowing them to profit off the sale of beings sentient and otherwise and indulge in their sadistic sport at the same time. While its presence in the Webway means it does not have a defined location in real-space, most of its shortest real-space termni are in the Kronus Expanse.

** Partially averted if a player is the Navigator. Since no one else can drive the ship, the mutiny has to pretty much put up with whatever your demands are (such as "don't kill the captain, just lock him in his room") until you reach a major port at minimum, at which point replacing the crew by more violent means becomes a viable option.

** [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace The Processional of the Damned, in the Accursed Demesne]]. A dark star sits at the center of the system and has an unknown pull into the warp as well as on the material plane, drawing ancient ships, space hulks, and even planets to it from the warp, each joining a long ring of matter slowly orbiting around it. The flow of time is somehow distorted here, with ships closer in to the dark star more ancient those those further out, even if they are of newer manufacture. Those who have visited it report the echos of voices on vox transmission given out long ago, that seem to reach out and cut off unexpectedly, and those who see it for themselves report a sense of [[EldritchLocation a dreadful intelligence watching them]]. Deeper in the Processional are what are called the Hollow Men, voidsuit wearers who emerge to break down ships that get near. No one knows where they come from or why they do what they do, and all the voidsuits they wear seem to be [[AnimatedArmor empty]]...

** Dross, a planet among the Heathen Stars. Remarkable in that the world has strange lightening storms that defy conventional logic and meteorology, occasionally sending bolts into low orbit to strike ships that get too close. Any landing is almost certainly doomed to failure and an ignoble crash. The surface is inhabited by survivors of those wrecks who regard the many derelicts on the surface as holy sites, and give praise to the "Sky Father" for delivering them new ones. They will defend such sites violently, and often war with each other over ownership of any of these various wrecks.

The name ''Rogue Trader'' refers to two different games associated with the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe. The original ''Rogue Trader'' was the first edition of the ''Warhammer 40,000'' tabletop game, while the current ''Rogue Trader'' (2009) is the second of a series of ''Warhammer 40,000'' tabletop roleplaying games. While its sister game ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'' casts the players in the role of Inquisitorial Acolytes and focuses on themes of corruption and conspiracy, ''Rogue Trader'' is a game of exploration, adventure, and the horrors of the unknown, following one of the eponymous Rogue Traders and his crew as they explore the uncharted depths of space for gold, glory and the God-Emperor. Something like a DarkerAndEdgier ''Franchise/StarTrek'' -- or, as some put it, MirrorUniverse ''Franchise/StarTrek''.

Wouldn't flying the massive spaceships count?
** Oddly enough, the core rule book has no rules for anything those piloting skills are useful for.

** The power board from ''Into the Storm'' is a [[Film/BackToTheFuture hoverboard]]. Its description inverts the "hoverboards are real tech" hoax by stating "Many still refuse to believe these featureless flat planks exist."
