Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles: The Hydora Campaign

This DVD with the compiled episodes dealing with the Hydora Campaign picks up right where Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles – The Pluto Campaign left off. The Federation now knows that the bug are not native to Pluto and they are trying to find out where they do actually come from. To do this they send ships out on paths that would match the transport bugs trajectory so that they can follow it to the bugs destination. At first they do not have any luck at all finding the bug until Gossard goes to Razak and then the commander of the Rodger Young to tell them why that they have not been able to find it. It is his theory that something that was the size of a small moon would leave a gravitational marker on any system that it would pass through. Fleet Intelligence did not take any of that into consideration and the commander of the Rodger Young was very put off that someone would even question Fleet, especially a MI soldier. Not wanting to seem as if he was not willing to listen he has the navigation officer put in the new information and then they find the transport bug right away. The commander just grimaces and has the ship change course and send the new coordinators to the rest of Fleet Operation Command so that all the other ships would be able to meet up at the same location.

Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles: The Pluto Campaign

This collection of episodes from the TV Show of the same name, without the campaign added, starts one of the best adaptation of Robert Heinlein’s work Starship Troopers for viewing. In this adaptation the MI Marines are actually wearing power suits that protect them from the elements, shields them from radiation and keeps them alive in environments where they would not be able to otherwise. For the DVD the producers have removed all of the beginning and end credits so that you are able to watch the whole as a movie. The show was done in such a way that the episodes would run into one another and build off each other. While it is true that they each would stand on their own they are easier to understand and grasp when they are show all together as one film. They take the best parts of the Starship Troopers movie and then add in more realism and accuracy from the book. You might think that insane but to paraphrase a quote from Doc, “We are fighting giant bugs on freaking Pluto, We are all insane.”
