During the Peloponnesian War, the Theia crossed paths with the Adrestia, a ship commandeered by the Spartan misthios Kassandra and captained by Barnabas. In the following conflict The Octopus was slain.
- The name of the ship references a Titaness in Greek mythology, Theia. She was the sister/consort of Hyperion.
- In Greek language, the word θείᾱ (theíā) means 'aunt', though as the name of the Titan, it's taken rather as a derivative of θεᾱ́ (theā́), which means 'goddess'.
- The design of the Theia features the emblem of Messenia: the Greek god Zeus ready to throw one of his lightning bolts.
