This is a list of fictional spacecraft, starships and exo-atmospheric vessels that have been identified by name in published works of fiction.
The term spacecraft is mainly used to refer to spacecraft that are real or conceived using present technology. The terms spaceship and starship are generally applied only to fictional space vehicles, usually those capable of transporting people.
The spaceship is one of the prime elements in science fiction. Numerous short stories and novels are built up around various ideas for spacecraft, and spacecraft have featured in many films and television series. Some hard science fiction books focus on the technical details of the craft.
For other ships from Star Wars, Star Trek and other major franchises, see the separate lists linked below.
