Description: Plasma Bugs are the anti-aircraft and artillery of the Arachnids, aliens that counter-attacked the Earth (in Argentina) with asteroids in 1997. These bugs can fire a plasma burst from their abdomen capable of destroying capital starships; these bursts are thought to be guided by the hive mind. If the Arachnids were able to place them on a planet in our solar system, the prognosis would be negative.
