With the advent of commercialized space flight, Telian civilians demonstrated a desire for longer space travel experiences, and more exotic destinations. This last factor was a primary consideration in the creation of the first Diekk-ti Class cruise ships. Although civilian space flights to Tenian had been extremely popular, the other planetary destinations could only be reached in fairly utilitarian transport ships. These trips, as exciting as  they might have been, were normally quite short, and the emphasis was placed on reaching the destination. On the Diekk-ti Class ships, the ship and the trip itself is the primary reason for attempting the voyage. The destination is entirely secondary, as most of these cruises tend to be round trips, rather than one way. The crew complement of this ship class is 950, with room for a little over 1500 passengers.
