The centipede is the second smallest known 31c/240 spaceship after the caterloopillar's 31c/240 variant, and is the smallest 31c/240 spaceship making use of the 31c/240 reaction. It was discovered by Chris Cain later on the same day as the shield bug and actually reuses most of its circuitry despite of having quite different shape. Its smaller size is due to a more compact front-end that was built by Cain a day earlier.
