The alien arrived on Earth, just when Mr. Snippy had uncovered a plot to kill the Captain, that involved the mug. Snippy refused to return the potential dangerous mug to the Captain and was thus targeted by the Arbitrator, who seems to have only a very rough description of the Captain's appearance.
Since it wasn't able to locate any other sentient bipedal being in the vicinity and Snippy was holding the Captain's mug the Arbitrator is convinced that the Captain is nothing more than a split personality of Mr. Snippy.
It is planning to kidnap the sniper and take him into custody and destroy the Earth. Source
In Episode 117 , the mug deployed an ion micro-ray, which sliced the Arbitrator's body and it's carbon shell, releasing Snippy in the process.
Aliens' reason to destroy the Earth
While the aliens first thought the dead Earth would be perfect for colonizing, the Arbitrator now has orders to destroy it. It seems the high amount of radioactive dust in the atmosphere shielded the still operating ANNET-system from discovery until the Biomass found out about it while scanning Mr. Snippy's memories. The aliens fear the ANNET as they see it as an inorganic parasite that feeds on the thoughts of sentient beings. They are ready to destroy the Earth rather than have the ANNET take over more worlds.
The Biomass explained to Snippy, that the Earth is contaminated with the ANNET's grid from far underground to high up in the troposphere (the part of the atmosphere weather phenomenons take place in, ends at altitude of ~10km). this could be a hint that the hostile snowflakes encountered by the squad are indeed probes sent by the ANNET.
However, the Arbitrator does not seem to realize that the mug may also be part of ANNET - or, if the mug itself is not, the probes inside almost certainly are. Whether or not the Arbitrator succeeds in destroying Earth, the ANNET seems to have assured its' own survival in having Sniper carry the mug off of the planet.
