This is pretty common in fiction — check the wikipedia page — but I came looking for it after seeing Thor: Ragnarok; To all outside observers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if a faster-than-light craft has any problems during transit, it disappears forever — but when Thor is thrown out of a Bifrost transport, he ends up on the planet-sized junkyard of Sakaar for the bulk of the movie. It's not just a Derelict Graveyard — sure there's loads of broken ships there — but there's also lots and lots of lost people. One of them is the Hulk.
