The war against the Bugs continues! A Federation Starship crash-lands on the distant Alien planet OM-1, stranding beloved leader Sky Marshal Anoke and several others, including comely but tough pilot Lola Beck. It's up to Colonel/General Johnny Rico, reluctant hero of the original Bug Invasion on Planet P, to lead a team of Troopers on a daring rescue mission.Written by

better than 2 but inferior to 1
The war with the bugs continues with new deadlier bugs and better weapons to fight them. United Citizen Federation faces internal opposition to the war and religious revival. Colonel John Rico (Casper Van Dien) is fighting on planet Roku San. They are joined by popular entertainer Sky Marshal Omar Anoke and Captain Lola Beck (Jolene Blalock). Rico gets into a fight with General Dix Hauser (Boris Kodjoe) which is interrupted by a bug attack. The base gets overrun. The survivors escape and Rico is blamed for the lost. Beck is shot down with Anoke but Admiral Enolo Phid (Amanda Donohoe) is hiding the lost of the popular Anoke. Hauser goes off to rescue the stranded crew after saving Rico from his execution.
Casper Van Dien returns to play Rico. The franchise has also return to the full out war movie. The CGI is inferior to the first movie but it does try to return to the war action. The story gets a bit too convoluted with the inclusion of religion. It would also be better to keep the cast together on their adventure. This is better than the second movie but it is simply a shadow of the original.
