Here's a question for you: why are xenomorphs in science fiction, and even in fantasy, so often athropodic?
Phylum Arthropodia includes subphyla Chelicerata (containing class Arachnida), Hexapoda (containing class Insecta), and Myriapoda (containing centipedes and millipedes).

Consider:

Starship Troopers (both the book and the film)
The Talents series (The Rowan, Damia, Damia's Children, The Tower and the Hive)
Ender's Game
Starcraft
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
