Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999): S01E17 – …And Then There Were Two


Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles is a 1999-2000 CGI animated television series, based on the 1959 novel by Robert A. Heinlein and the 1997 film adaptation.

It follows the exploits of the Mobile Infantry squad, “Razak’s Roughnecks,” during the SICON–Bugs War between a newly united humanity and an extraterrestrial race, known as the “Bugs,” also sometimes referred to as Arachnids.

The show focuses mainly on the Roughnecks’ missions, rather than addressing the larger war.


Tesca Nemerosa: Day 23.

As the squad goes on Recon in the Tesca Nemerosan jungle beyond Zegema Beach, Rico still refuses to accept T’Phai into the unit.

But as a giant Spider Bug abducts the Roughnecks one by one, Rico and T’Phai are left alone and forced to work together, even as T’Phai’s malfunctioning powersuit has turned him into a true liability.

In the end, they team up to defeat the bug, rescue the unit … and save T’Phai from hypothermia.
