Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999): S01E38 – The Gates of Hell


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.


Earth: Day Unknown.

After a little prompting from Carl, Rico and Dizzy decide to pursue a relationship.

But as S.I.C.O.N. attempts to retake Oahu, Honolulu, City Hall and S.I.C.O.N. HQ, Rico becomes dangerously overprotective of his new “girlfriend.”

After the victory, Rico and Diz sadly agree to table their feelings until the war’s over.

Seconds later, Sky Marshal Sanchez arrives at S.I.C.O.N. HQ to congratulate his men.

Suddenly, a huge pit opens up under the building – and Sanchez is taken down into the pit by the Bugs.
