The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope? You should be over at You Know, That Thing Where.

Example #1: In the She-Ra two-parter "Anchors Aloft", Sea Hawk finds his father, the Falcon's old seabound ship, The Clipper, and has his men use wreckage of Hawk's destroyed flying ship (plus supplies from the Great Rebellion) to upgrade/convert the Clipper to solar flight. Example #2: In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the Consular-Class Cruiser (Charger C70 Retrofit), a diplomatic ship upgraded/converted into a warship.
