    General CommentHere's my take.

    Basically, the entire Master of Puppets album is about the things that control humanity, such as anger (Battery), addiction (Master of Puppets), religion (Leper Messiah), etc. This was named Orion because in mythology, Orion became a puppet of the gods after he chose to follow Artemis. Apollo was jealous of Artemis' new follower, and eventually, Artemis ended up killing Orion because of Apollo's trickery. Thus, Orion never had control of his destiny, and his fate was entirely in the hands of the gods. Because the album is about those things which control humanity, Orion was a perfectly appropriate title for this instrumental. Perhaps the explanation of the spaced out nature of one of the parts played a factor as well. But that's my take on it.
