Mythology & Trivia[]

  • Ophiuchus is a large constellation, whose name in Greek means "Serpent-bearer".
  • In Roman Era mythology, Ophiuchus Serpent-bearer represents the healer Asclepius, who learned the secrets of how to achieve immortality, after witnessing one snake bringing another healing herbs to avoid death. With this knowledge gained, Jupiter didn't want all of humanity to become immortal and as such decided to kill Asclepius with lightning. Later on however, Jupiter placed Asclepius image in the sky to honour his good works.[1]
    • Due to the story of Ophiuchus making humans immortal, it's likely the reasoning for the ships name as they're immortal androids who pose as humans.
    • Also the serpent-bearer act of giving one knowledge of this human immortality to another may also be possibly exampled by Victor bearing humanity to the Android.
