Product Description

In "The Klendathu Campaign," Rico and his fellow Troopers are confronted with a disturbing turn of events when their leader Lieutenant Zander is infected with a bug virus and is transformed into a super-strong half-human/half-bug mutant. Intent on destroying the Troopers, Zander follows them in the fiery Klendathu planet. Now, while they try to beat impossible odds fighting the enormous Arachnid army, they're also trying to save their former leader--before he destroys them.

By Dwayne A. Day on May 23 2004
Format: DVD
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.
[SPOILER]
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.
[MAJOR SPOILERS]
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.

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!

I preordered Kleandathu and Homefront as soon as I saw them announced, and have been waiting patiently for their release. Having never seen the show on television, going through the DVDs in "proper" order has unfolded the Roughnecks saga for me one campaign at a time.
I must in all honesty say I was a little disappointed in Klendathu. Maybe part of this is the simple fact that it's hard for anything long anticipated to live up to expectations. I thought that the animation was actually not quite up to Foundation's usual high standards. Movement at times seemed jerky, particularly that of the ships. Green bug blood shot forth in huge softball sized gobs (what happened to particle effects?). Gunfire seemed less convincing. On the plus side there were some nice looking missile trail and rocket exhaust effects, and fine explosions. Overall, I thought there was a different "feel" to this one. Not bad, but different.
That's not to say I don't think you should buy it. It's an obvious must have for your collection. I'm looking forward to watching Homefront soon. BTW, why on earth (pun intended) did Sony release these two campaigns before Asteroid? I haven't seen it, and have no idea what plot developments I've missed! This makes no sense whatsoever. If they only wanted to release two at a time to keep interest up, it should have been Asteroid and Klendathu, no? Hold the finale to build up sales. Go figure...

The Roughnecks bring the war to the bugs in "The Klendathu Campaign", the latest DVD release from the Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles series. The story opens with the Valley Forge being hijacked by an intruder with intimate knowlege of the ship. (Unfortunately the identity and origin of this intruder is explained in the previous 'Ice Asteroid Campaign' which is not yet released)The Roughnecks pursue the intruder forcing him to escape in a rescue pod, but not before he pilots the ship to Klendathu, the bug's home world. This marks the beginning of SICON's massive attack on the bug home. The Roughnecks participate in a massive 'D-Day' style invasion of Klendathu, confront an old friend now turned enemy and face a last stand against bug hoards in an abandoned trench. In the dramatic conclusion to the campaign Razak's squad is reunited with a long lost comrade to participate in a commando raid to destroy the arachnid queen and bring the war to a swift end.
The Klendathu Campaign is a thrilling continuation of the Roughnecks saga. The CGI by Foundation Imaging just continues to grow more subtle and sophisticated. The staging area, Klendathu is a fetid fog covered world swarming with seas of bugs. Battles range from massive invasions to search and destroy missions and even commando raids deep within enemy territory. The stories remain remarkably subtle and complex for American animation. The characters continue to grow and change; another Roughneck is lost to a crippling injury, an old squadmate returns but has changed in frightening ways, gung-ho Dizzy experiences self-doubt, while Rico begins to show leadership mettle. The series even pauses from endless battles to let the Roughnecks compose heartfelt messages home from battle (in 'Letters Home') This DVD is a must for any serious fan of animation and first rate story-telling.
