Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999): S01E40 – Final Inferno


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.

150 Marauders designed to fight in lava start the final assault on the Bug Queen as she lures them into the deepest levels of the huge cauldra that was once S.I.C.O.N. HQ.

The first 100 will clear the first level so 50 can pass to the second; they in turn will enable 10 Marauders to pass to the next level (Guess which ten!).

These will in turn enable one Marauder to reach the Queen for the final showdown!
