But where WERE the spiders??
Okay, so I ripped off another Bowie song/album. The name "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" was just too good to pass up. So HERE are the spiders.
The Planet Mars was recently made habitable to Human life by a planet-wide terra-forming effort. This yielded two results: 1. Earthmen can inhabit Mars and 2. the Spider-people who had long lain dormant in their buried egg-sacs hatched and immediately began attacking the Nova-Martian settlers. In fact, most of the Earthian-Martian populace still mourns the now infamous "Last stand at Fort Wells" and the "Battle of Big Face". Things have improved in recent months since the construction of the new, walled city outside Fort John Carter.
