Own the space-bug saga that began with Paul Verhoeven's original theatrical hit STARSHIP TROOPERS, a ghoulish mix of big-budget, half-spoofy sci-fi action, gore, and military-media satire starring Casper Van Dien (SLEEPY HOLLOW), Dina Meyer (SAW), Denise Richards (WILD THINGS), and Neil Patrick Harris (DOOGIE HOWSER, MD). Edward Neumeier--co-scribe of ROBOCOP and the original STARSHIP TROOPERS--comes back for round 2 with HERO OF THE FEDERATION, in which a group of soldiers do battle with the ugly bugs in an abandoned outpost. Finally, Van Dien returns after over a decade for the second sequel to the original alien-bug-battling, action-packed splatter-fest satire. More gee-whiz WWII media-and-soap opera parody is on hand when the celebrated Colonel Johnny Rico (Van Dien) finds himself put on death row for acting inappropriately during battle. But when a Federation starship piloted by tough soldier babe Lola Beck (Jolene Blalock, ENTERPRISE) crashes on a far-away alien planet, only the bug-squashing Rico can save the day, and so the authorities have no choice but to release him for the mission. Armed with an impossibly advanced weapon known as the Marauder, Rico and his crew are prepared to exterminate by any means necessary. MARAUDER marks the directorial debut of regular series writer Neumeier.
