In Starship Troopers: Invasion, a distant Federation outpost protected by the Starship John A. Warden comes under attack by bugs and the team on Fast Attack Ship Alesia is assigned to help evacuate the survivors and bring military intelligence safely back to Earth. Before the attack ship can rendezvous with the starship, Carl Jenkins, now at the ministry of Paranormal Warfare, takes the starship on a clandestine mission and goes missing in the nebula. The battle-hardened troopers are then charged with a rescue mission that may have much more sinister consequences than they ever could have imagined.

Starship Troopers: Invasion is being produced by Joseph Chou (Appleseed Ex Machina; Halo Legends), and Executive Produced by Edward Neumeier (Starship Troopers franchise, Robocop franchise) and Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, The Omega Code, Sleepy Hollow). The screenplay was written by Flint Dille (The Transformers: The Movie, Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay video game, G.I. Joe TV series).
