Roughnecks: Starship Trooper Chronicles prepares for a second outing

Roughnecks: Starship Troopers has been one of the new breed of highly polished computer animated cartoons since its launch in 1999. After the successful release of the first volume of episodes from the series, Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is preparing to release the second volume of the series, The Tesca Campaign this September.

Johnny Rico and his crew are furious when they find out they’ve been partnered up with the suspicious T’Phai to combat an infestation of alien bugs on Zegema Beach. But after Rico suffers a near-fatal attack by a Giant Spider Bug and T’Phai takes on a team of vicious Control Bugs and Tanker Worms, the two men and the Troopers realize if they want to survive, they’re going to have to work together. Gathering their strength, weapons and combat-tested skills, the team prepares to attack the most loathsome creatures in the universe – for what they hope will be the last time.

Like the previous volume, the new DVD will present the show in its original fullscreen ratio, accompanied by a Dolby 2-Channel surround track. The disc will also contain an audio commentary, and a photo gallery.

“Roughnecks: Starship Troopers – The Tesca Campaign” will come to DVD on September 18th and will carry a suggested retail price of $24.95
