I like the political situation touch. 'We're not going to blow up
their rivals just cause they say it's Spectra.' I like, and I know
the idea is worth a database of fics in ANY Gatch 'verse."
I love the image of Keyop: "C'm here, girl, that's right...what are
you all scared of? It's just a spider." I can almost see those big
innocent eyes. And it figures that the animal lover would be the
first one to mention that mixing animals from different
environments is Not A Good Idea. Rabbits and Australia? The cane toad
anywhere? In the short story "The Botticelli Horror",* we about what
happens when an alien life form from Venus gets loose on Earth. Nuff'
There was a daddy?! I just thought it was like some earth
invertabrates, where the female can store essentials for some time
after mating, or reproduce parthogenetically.

Mecha sized or stomp-with-foot size! Ooooh, that gave me the willies. I would have run for it too, if I had seen spider legs that long! I loved the reactions you gave the team. What do you bet the Phoenix was subjected to a 'tenting' after this to make sure nothing else might be crawling around? ;)
I like the way you ended it. I think that if Keyop had asked to keep it, it woudn't have just been just Princess to protest!
