Super Capital Ship

This ship is classified as a Super Capital. It is one of the most powerful Capital Ships and can be built on the build menu

The Theia is a PVP-oriented Super Capital Ship.

Description

The Theia is a PVP ship capable of dishing out enormous amounts of damage in a short time with its Spinals (although it can be used for Sieges, it cannot take damage as long as the Hyperion can).

Interior

The interior of the Theia is a rather small but detailed room. When you first enter, it has two Computers that lead to the pilots seat. It has the same color scheme as other ships by Event Horizon Shipyards such as the Osiris, but the interior is not as detailed.

Advantages

  • Fast for a Super Capital Ship, even faster than most Dreadnoughts.
  • Doesn't have many blind spots.
  • Spinal damage output is insane, making up almost half of the Theia's DPS.
  • Has extremely high alpha damage.
  • Spinals are packed close together, making them easier to land.
  • Decent maneuverability for a Super Capital Ship.
  • It has 2 super Point defense lasers giving it slight defense against smaller and more agile ships.

Disadvantages

  • Lowest total health out of all Super Capital Ships.
  • Difficult to get back after losing due to being very expensive.
  • A good portion of its DPS relies on Spinal aiming.
  • Low turnspeed for a spinal-based ship.

Strategy

  • Use the ship while solo only if you are confident that you won't die. Always have a fleet with you.
  • When fighting, stay pointed exactly in line with other Super Capital Ships in fights.
