“Bugs, Scabs, Chits, Cancrids, Kryk, Krixor, Chigs, Vrizn, Bllrrll, Flaa, Crabs…there are hundreds of names for this invasive species. Humanity mostly refers to them as Harvesters for how they plunder and cull every resource and living thing they encounter. The Harvesters have been part of the Death Fields Circuit for as long as any beings can remember and exist even further back in the racial memories of species thousands of light years apart.
Bug infestations are a constant problem for the species of the galaxy. Advanced civilizations find them a nuisance and can quickly eliminate them before they become a threat. For primitive worlds they can represent Apocalypse.”
