Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Starship Troopers .
|Who do we see in this movie that we saw a whole lot of on TV in his younger years... he was a boy genius... and a Dr. even! What was the name of his character we used to watch?||Starship Troopers
Doogie Howser . Dr. Doogie was what?... like 15 or something like that? It was pretty cool show.
|When Johnny and pals went to sign up for the federation, what was the 'sign-in' man missing?||Starship Troopers
all of them! (his arm, from the elbow down!, his left leg, from the knee down!, his right leg, from the knee down!). Johnny's signing up for Mobile Infantry and the guy says, 'Mobile Infantry made me the man I am today!'
|When you shoot at a bug, it's still 86 percent combat effective. How do you immobilize them?||Starship Troopers
shoot at their nerve stem. Here's some advice...
Carmen. Carmen was actually his girlfriend. Dizz was a fling. Just once. Then she was killed. SO sad!
bugs. GIANT BUGS. So gross.
Buenos Aires. 'My family... my whole family, was in Buenos Aires.' Feel kinda bad for these people!
someone who makes it his personal responsibility to protect the human race. It's said a couple of times in the movie. Maybe not the EXACT words, but if you've seen this movie, you know exactly which choice is the correct one.
Zim. Remember? He had to bust himself down to private from sergeant to fight in the mobile infantry. Rico and Ace saved Carmen from the bugs while Zim captured the brain bug. Zander had his brains sucked out of his head by the brain bug.
|What does the Federation designate the planet they think has a brain bug on it?||Starship Troopers
Planet P. The first fight scene on this planet is awesome! This is where the effects really look great. You see how outnumbered the humans truly are.
Klendathu. The first battle scene takes place on this planet. The Federation gets whooped, to say the least.
Robert A. Heinlein. He also wrote "Puppet Masters" and "Red Planet". The movie was changed quite a lot from the book.
Breckinridge. Breckinridge could not get his helmet on right, so he had Rico help him. When he took it off he was shot in the head by accident. Rico was given administrative punishment for negligence. He was whipped 10 times in public.
Rico. But Rico messes up and Ace then becomes the squad leader.
Cyrano. He uses ESP and sends it up his mother's leg, "Carl"!
1 . Best Effects, Visual Effects.
Games and Theory. Carl (aka Doogie Howser) has a cool character personality transformation throughout the film.
Michael Ironside . Great B movie actor. He is one actor that can portray a likeable villain.
a trip to Zegema Beach. A good thing he didn't go. Zegema Beach was destroyed by the bugs!
|What is Johnny's math finals score that his friend Carl displays to everybody on the monitor?||Starship Troopers
35%. Not cool, Carl. Johnny isn't that smart but follows his girfriend to the Federation to become a citizen and joins the mobile infantry.
|What is the saying the Federation Network Announcer says throughout the movie?||Starship Troopers
Would you like to know more. This seems kinda campy, but it shows the federation mentality in the movie.
3 meters. The first time Carmen flew the Roger Young was when she was undocking it from the spaceport ring around the moon. She was turning and almost hit one of the docking arms on her way out. She was told to take it easy after that, or else they'd revoke her flight privileges.
Dizzy. After Zim gave his speech he asked if there was anyone who had what it took to "knock him down". Breckenridge stepped forward; Zim threw him to the ground and twisted his arm until it broke. Later, Dizzy came up to Zim and showed him her papers. She had requested to be transferred to his unit. When she was asked what made her think she was good enough for it, she decided to "knock him down". She got a few blunt and brutal hits on Zim, but was ultimately defeated. She still stayed in the new unit, however.
Career Sergeant Zim. The first day Johnny met him, Zim was trying to terrify them as a crazed old combat fanatic. Zim did have a soft side, though, which was seen when he wasn't training the young recruits.
Carl, Johnny and Carmen. The last time all three of them were together, before they were shipped off to the academy, Carmen proposed they stay friends forever. Carl reasoned that they'd be light-years apart and probably never see each other again, but decided to make the vow anyway.
Games and Theory. Games and Theory is Military Intelligence. Johnny asked Carl if he got Starside R and D and when Carl said no, Johnny got angry. After Carl explained that he got Games and Theory, Johnny cooled down and became joyful again.
|At the last dance, Dizzy stole Johnny away while he was waiting for Carmen. Johnny said he wanted to go speak with Mr. Rasczak, and left Dizzy. Who came to take Johnny's place as Dizzy's dance partner?||"Starship Troopers" Before the Storm
Carl. Johnny had a small chat with Mr. Rasczak about his future, and then moved off to find Carmen chatting with Zander. Johnny only got Carmen for the last dance of the night. When they tried kissing, Carl came in and broke them apart and Dizzy gave them one of the coldest glares she could muster.
Zegema Beach. Johnny always wanted to go to Zegema Beach, but ultimately decided to go into Federal Service for Carmen. Later, when he joined the Roughnecks, he commented that he had always wanted to go to Zegema Beach, but was told that it no longer existed.
Seven. You only get a few chances to see it, but you can. The numbers didn't actually play a significant part in the story. The Jump Ball game was where Johnny met Zander for the first time and told the audience just how athletic Johnny was. He used some of the plays from the Jump Ball game during his training for the Mobil Infantry.
Zander, Johnny's rival in almost every way, was twelve. Zander was on the opposite team, started hitting on Carmen, and was in the Fleet, as opposed to Johnny who was in the Mobil Infantry. Carmen actually broke up with Johnny for Zander, as Zander was in the fleet with her, making a relationship easier.
Ferret. Cyrano ran out of his tunnel system and ran across Carl's keyboard. To get rid of Cyrano, Carl used his psychic abilities to plant the image of a grub up his own mom's leg, in Cyrano's mind. Cyrano ran up the stairs. After a quick explanation of what he did, they heard the screams of Carl's mother.
|During Johnny's psychic study with Carl, which card did he choose when the six of diamonds was up? (He spent a long time thinking about this one.)||"Starship Troopers" Before the Storm
Ace of Spades. After he guessed wrong, Carl told him not to think about it and to just go by instinct. Johnny never got a single match. "Statistically speaking, you should have accidentally guessed right by now." Carl explained.
