Default Inter-Cultural Influence

One thing I'd love to see more of in Traveller, or other sci-fi for that matter, is inter-cultural influence. In most sci-fi settings, aliens have, for example, their religion, their food and their clothes, while humans have theirs; cross-influence is rare: how many humans in sci-fi settings worship alien gods and adopt some alien cultural traits, and how many aliens convert to human religions and adopt human cultural traits?

This is something I'm devoting some thought to in my next sci-fi settings (these stars are ours/ashes of empire). I'd like to hear your thoughts on that matter.
We are but a tiny candle flickering against the darkness of our times.
