Casper Van Dien,
In a utopian society created at the end of the third world war, a female warrior who has been plucked from the badlands begins to see cracks in this new facade. And what does this community have planned for the rest of humankind?
Luke Kovak is part of a covert group within the CIA that works on illegal black ops involving blackmail and assassinations.

He now lives as a priest until the group start to get close to tracking him down.
Casper Van Dien (Johnny Rico) and Dina Meyer (Dizzy Flores) both appeared in the original live action film back in 1997, playing the same characters. Casper was reprising his role for a third time while for Dina this was the second time. See more »
Starship Troopers Traitor of Mars: Best ST movie since 1997
Starship Troopers has a long history dating back all the way to the tail end of the 1950's, it's movie's started in the 80's and ever since it's been a very rocky road. They hit pay dirt with 1997's Paul Verhoevens epic but after that it all fell rather flat.
In 2012 they released Invasion which was the first animated Starship Troopers movie and it wasn't bad, in fact it was the best since 1997 as parts 2 & 3 of the live action were pretty terrible.
Here in 2017 with Casper Van Dien returning as Rico and oddly Dina Meyer returning as Dizzy they succeeded again as this is the best Starship Troopers movie they've made (With the exception of 1997).
Also returning for the ride is Carmen and Carl, but don't expect them to be voiced by Denise Richards or Neil Patrick Harris.
The plot is a conspiracy regarding a bug outbreak on mars and it's actually not all that bad. The animation though not entirely fluid still looks the part and even if it is a tad cheesy the voice acting is on point.
Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars is a rather enjoyable addition to the franchise. More of this would be greatly appreciated.
Some oddly good humour
Dizzy looked weird
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Kicking someone to the ground who is in possession of a nuke makes perfect sense
Battlesuits come standard with butt cheeks
Approval ratings are monitered active and live at all times
