The Thera-class carrier Delphi was constructed by the Free Worlds League between 3063 and 3067, becoming the fourth-of-class vessel of her class, following the earlier FWLS Santorini, FWLS Sardis and FWLS Corinth. The FWLS Delphi was destroyed during the opening stages of the Jihad in 3068 by Word of Blake forces.
The destruction of the Delphi and seven other Free Worlds League WarShips unaccounted for specifically by name in sourcebooks was confirmed by the BattleTech Developer Øystein Tvedten via the Catalyst Game Labs Ask The Writers Forum:
