This game will probably never get uninstalled. I've played through those beginning few sectors SOOOOOOOO many times, of course. And there are always different things popping up that I haven't seen before, no matter how many times it seems I've played them, and it happened just again. Yeah, there's been many times when there's a spider-problem and I send my crew down and either live or die. But this time through, maybe 3 beacons prior, I came across a pirate/smuggler who I could purchase an unknown item from for 45scrap. I decided to go ahead and do it and see what I got (usually it's meh, I've found), and I got an "anti-bio-beam" weapon, which does 60 damage to enemy crew. Then, when I came to the spider-infestation beacon, I had a blue option to take out the spiders from afar with the anti-bio beam!!! They dropped their shields, and I used the weapon (just in the text, of course, I didn't have to do anything other than have it equipped, just like anything for those blue-missions), it killed all of the spiders and everything was fine, success!!!
