In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
According to the DVD extras, the Axiom is a "General Dynamics Type Three Hull configuration" which is similar in name and shape to the "General Products Number Three Hull" featured in the classic science fiction novel, "Ringworld", by Larry Niven.
Voice in commercial:
Too much garbage in your face? There's plenty of space out in space! BnL StarLiners leaving each day. We'll clean up the mess while you're away.
The first time we see the Axiom, it emerges from what appears to be a nebula. Although nebulae can appear as dense as shown from a very large distance (and after some heavy image processing), they are in fact much, much less dense than the Earth's atmosphere (otherwise they would quickly collapse under their own gravity), and utterly incapable of obscuring a ship as shown.
