Starship Troopers

2 comments

Looks like no one remembers this awesome science fiction craze of 1990’s anymore?

Most of you would have seen the 1997 movie “Starship Troopers” which was quite a good movie of its time. There also was a sequel to it called “Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation“. I just caught up with these two movies again this month on DVD and it bought back the good old memories. Got to love guns, power suits and interstellar air-crafts just like the Halo series. ;)


Do any of you remember the “Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles” series which used to air on AXN around 2001 or so? It was a series representation of the Starship Troopers film adaptation and was fully CGI, way too good for its time! Just recently learnt that it had over 7 campaigns while only 3 were aired in India. So being how easy it is to acquire DVDs in 2007, I got them all, full 8 DVDs of all the campaigns in order:

  • The Pluto Campaign
  • The Hydora Campaign
  • The Tophet Campaign
  • The Tesca Campaign
  • The Zephyr Campaign
  • The Klendathu Campaign
  • The Trackers Episodes along with the Bonus clips, and finally,
  • The Homefront Campaign

It’s too bad the series ended in a cliff-hanger and the planned sequel was never produced since the company behind this masterpiece ran out of money and disappeared off the globe. :(

But anyways, you can wait for the third movie sequel “Starship Troopers: Marauders” coming up next year with an all new story.

You know what’s a Marauder if you’ve seen the Roughnecks series. ;)
