Battles of Sector X - Sunspiders 2
The sunspiders continue to breed and encroach on Ming territory, and the Ming Empire begins a search-and-destroy campaign.
A Ming probe discovers a brood of juveniles at a brown dwarf.
A Ming squadron augmented with Centauri mercenaries attack the brood.
The juveniles fight ferociously, destorying the Centauri squadron with little loss.
Adult sunspiders arrive at the sun and destroy the Ming ships and their mercenaries, but lose a few adults in the battle.
