5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool May 23 2004
I enjoyed this campaign a lot because it started out onboard the USS Valley Forge, the starship carrier that houses the Razak's Roughnecks.
It is clear from watching these disks that the writers and animators borrowed a lot of ideas from other movies and television shows. Here one of the obvious influences is Aliens. There are several episodes where the troopers are running around darkened starship corridors searching for the bugs that borrow the atmosphere and look of that movie.
If I have any complaint, it is that occasionally the show delved into comic-book-like stories and I think this is the worst example, when one of the human characters turns into a bug but still taunts the troopers with quips and snide wordplay. It is too much like a Spiderman comic book.
There is also a choice that Rico makes late in the episode that is not really touched on later in the series that I found troubling: at one point he has the opportunity to kill the alien queen but does not do so in order to save the life of one of his friends. The problem is that the queen then makes it to earth, leading to massive warfare and presumably the deaths of millions of people. But they never again revisit Rico's bad decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Release June 22 2002
I was already quite pleased by the released of the Hydoran and Tophet campaign. This one is just as good. I look forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Getting Better! June 15 2002
Second to last in the series, this group of five episodes is extremely fast-paced and nicely plotted.
Best of all, in spite of this being "juvenile" action (as Heinlein originally planned to market his novel), the Klendathu Campaign has more depth of character, gung-ho humor and just plain good old-fashioned story-telling charm than anyone would ever expect from a CGI "cartoon".
As I have said previously, the creators of Roughnecks deserve at
least one Hugo award for their efforts. Granted, the graphics and movement are not up to the Spirits Within level. But for all the reasons that really matter - the heart and soul of a story well told with characters that have some resonance - Roughnecks Chronicles has all the spirit that counts.
Let's hope the creators of this thing get to finish it someday. And go on to give us more quality science fiction CGI.
Live Forever, you apes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing Sequential Episodes! June 8 2002
Great dvd, however we are missing a story arc. I have loosely named it the Frozen (or Lost) Asteroid Campaign and it directly precedes the Klendathu Campaign.
The missing episodes are 121 - Ice-Olation", 122 "Mixed Signals", 123 "Hot Ice", 124 "The Inside Story", and 125 "The Ice Men Goeth".
Without revealing content, this arc introduces a new bug (Fireflies) and answers the question, what happened to Zander. We still have one more dvd to wait for...and that's a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Happened to Ep. 131 -- "Trackers"? June 7 2002
By Michael
I loved the original book (I have a first edition hardcover!); I thought the movie strayed too far from the original material, but the bugs were cool; and the TV series combined the best of both for a truely remarkable achievement. I have purchased all six available DVD's through Amazon, and fans of the series will not be disappointed in the episodes provided, but what happened to the Ice Asteroid episodes, and what happened to episode 131, "Trackers", where they pursue the Queen Bug escaping Klendathu? It's missing from both the Klendathu campaign and the Homefront campaign DVD's. What's up?

This disc contains episodes 26 thru 30 of Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (40 episodes altogether). This campaign has it all - a full scale D-Day invasion of the Bug's homeworld (Klendathu), a very changed Zander Barcalow trying to create a very crude Human-Arachnid hybrid, troopers sending video-taped "letters home" to loved ones during the lulls of trench warfare, tactical nuclear strikes, acid spitting Bugs, and the return of an old friend to help hunt down a new foe. This is Roughnecks near its peak performance, some of the best episodes of the whole series!
Be sure to check out the Filmmakers' and Technical commentaries, they definitely make the disk worthy of repeat viewing. There is no picture gallery on this DVD, but the galleries on the Hydora and Tophet DVDs are so extensive that additional galleries at this point would probably be redundant. Oh yeah, and there is FINALLY a decent trailer for the rest of the Roughnecks series included on this disc. If you're a die-hard Roughnecks fan (like myself), this is a great disc to show your friends and family in order to hook them on the series!
