Concept Sketch: The armies limp home

Ok.. Im not a space / sci-fi fan...
I have no idea if this idea looks like something else (i.e. "Classic" sci-fi films etc)
But here is my sketch...
Its the future (i got to work out when!)
The earth has been abused and has died. All thats left is lava flows and thermal storms.
Population has expanded so much that earth has now expanded into surrounding space, Split into massive cities. Earth is now used as a source of fuel/heat -> steam -> turbines.
It is a struggle and life needs to move to other planets.
New planets have been found to contain rich natural environments.
Armies of spacecraft are sent to conquer new worlds. None have been successful. The ships limp home once again to be refuled and fixed.

I dont have a scanner so a camera pic of my first sketch is all I can offer... Im crap at drawing at the best of times but the idea is there...
I will try and elaborate later...
If anyone can tell me if this is like - "the worlds most unoriginal idea and is a total copy of some sci-fi film/novel" then please tell me!!
