It turns out Thetis roughly equals Titanic as an unlucky name:

Old school LOL! I believe this is more who they were thinking about.

I don't know who named it, or why, or why the dev's have a fascination with naming everything after Greek mythological figures.

fascinating and sad story ... but I believe few would have pulled it up ... Thetis is probably still 'safe' for that reason.

thanks for the video though.

Nice find Clyde! Hopefully "our" Thetis will be one of the highlights of this century!
