It's weird (Destiny)

If the worms indeed have the power to manipulate entire planetoids into world-ending syzygies, why are they so dependent on the Hive in the first place? If they can wreak havoc in a ship as technologically advanced as the needle ship, why play dead?

A few thoughts:
- Maybe the worms have some power to affect the world around them but even though they might be able to arrange moons and planetary collisions they are still trapped in the depths of a gas giant? Crashing a few hundred planets or altering the orbits of moons wouldn't get them free...
- The needle ship was advanced but that doesn't mean the people inside it were any less squishy than we are...
- Maybe nobody was playing dead? Perhaps the worm the needle ship crew hatched attacked and killed them but was at the same time "killed" itself?
- Could there be other worms elsewhere in the galaxy, oh question asker mine? Maybe they aimed inhabited planets at Fundament and altered the orbits of the 52 moons?

Did they use to have powerful hosts before, in a way to explain these supposed incongruities? If so, what happened to them? Also, if the Hive aren't the first, what makes them so special? (Hell, what makes us so special? But that's for another discussion ;D )

- It would stand to reason that there were past worm hosts if they really lost a war millions of years ago.
- My guess is that the only special thing about the Hive was they were nearby and willing to ingest and bond with the worms.
