It happens all the time. Apparently Roddenberry even described the basis of "Star Trek" as a "wagon train" to the stars.


Also, anyone who has read Heinlein's "Citizen of the galaxy" (1957) is likely to recognise much of Rudyard Kipling's "Kim" (1901). And more recently may spot the same source material in Anne McCaffrey's "Sassinak" (1990)
