Added DiffLines:

** Also it's an odd bit of FanOn that the Macra were indigenous to the planet in the first place. It's not explicitly stated either way, but the fact they needed to terraform the planet, changing its atmosphere in order for them to survive there, suggests very strongly they were invaders from somewhere else. (It still could be they were there before the human colonists, though.)
