The Heavenly Host, or the Host, were service robots working for Max Capricorn Starcruisers. They were fashioned to look like angels. Their purpose was to provide information and other assistance to crew and passengers. However, the Heavenly Host lacked autonomy and would do anything their master authority ordered, including criminal acts such as murder.

Under the command of Max Capricorn himself, the machines turned deadly. They killed many of the passengers and crew of the Starship Titanic in 2008 as part of Capricorn's scheme to destroy his own ship and then retire a wealthy man.

Some of the Host were destroyed by an electromagnetic pulse set off by Bannakaffalatta, who used the last of his cyborg body's energy at the cost of his own life.

After Max Capricorn was killed by Astrid Peth, the Host reverted to the next highest authority figure, the Tenth Doctor, helping the Doctor reach the bridge of the ship to save it.
