I only remember one scene from the book, possibly two. What I remember of it is that the main bad guys were these insectoid aliens that had biological ships and other such things.

The scene that I remember most vividly is where the main characters are stuck on a bug planet running through trying to destroy something, and have to escape in a ship.

I think that there was something to do with centaur-like aliens as well that took the main characters from Earth, but I cannot remember exactly.

    I don't remember a book taking place on a bug planet but... Insectoid aliens? Centaur-like aliens? Spaceships? Does Animorphs ring a bell? – Jenayah Nov 14 '18 at 2:05

    Especially, the book The Andalite Chronicles had a part on the Taxxon homeworld. Taxxons are like centipedes. Only, you know, bigger (way bigger) and badder. – Jenayah Nov 14 '18 at 2:12

    Starship Troopers? There are no centaurs, but they do wear battle armor. – Jack B Nimble Nov 14 '18 at 19:38
  • There are centaur like creatures in a Heinlein novel - I think it’s Starman Jones. The one where they get lost on the other side of a space warp point and try to settle the planet but centaurs kidnap some of them so they leave and decide they have to find their way home to earth. No insect like aliens though. – Todd Wilcox Nov 15 '18 at 7:08
  • Sounds like Tyrannids in Warhammer 40k. – Wiggo the Wookie Dec 9 '18 at 7:59

To me this sounds like the Khleevi (big cockroach aliens that communicate by clicking) from the Acorna books by Anne McCaffrey...one of the later stories features the heroes visiting a bug homeworld, and the Ancestors of Acorna’s people are sort of like Centaurs.
