The Starliners were the first Cruise Ships in space being used for the Space Tours program setup by BNL as a public coverup for the real reason why humanity was being wisked away into space, Operation Recolonize. Thousands of these ships where deployed laden with humans eagerly awaiting the tours to commence, soon followed by the Executive Starliners, one of them being the Axiom. Originally only to last for 5 years, the Space Tours program was lengthened indefinately due to Directive A-113. The area where the Space Tours would start is presumed to be in the Kuiper Belt. It is unknown if the Kuiper Belt was just the Axiom's destination or if the other BNL Starliners and Executive Starliners went to other places in the galaxy.
