A merchant Starship optimised for carrying passengers. Liners come in a variety of configuations and sizes and can carry up to 5,000 passengers on short haul trips. Long haul Liners (between quadrants) rarely carry more than about 700 passengers and can be quite luxurious - allowing for reasonable comfort for the 200+ day journey.
