After the war, Arachnid took to traveling the galaxy in her ship, visiting planets in search of new and unusual alien species to wipe out. She kept a specimen of each in her ship. Eventually she reached Earth and crash-landed in a forest area. Her ship was stumbled on by Arcee, who saw the specimens and decided it would be a good idea to get out of there. Unfortunately she and Jack Darby were found by Airachnid herself. While being chased by the Decepticon, Jack located the ship and, finding that it was leaking energon, threw a lit piece of wood into it. The ship exploded with Airachnid perched on top, though managed to survive.
