What Sci-Fi Channel Show an I thinking of?
« on: June 12, 2003, 01:54 AM »
I really need help figuring out what show I'm thinking of -

A few years back, before my cable got fixed, I turned on the static-filled Sci-Fi channel and I caught the ending of a show where there seemed to be a war going on between man and an alien species.

There was a squad of troopers and they seemed to be pinned down in this facility, from what I remember this enemy of theirs would periodically drop these Migrane bombs or something and give the troopers a realllyy hard time.

I don't know what this could be - a TV version of Starship Troopers, an airing of the movie Starship Troopers (I've never seen the movie), Battlestar Galactica, or something else.

Any help is really appreciated!

Starship troopers fight giant bugs, if I am not mistaken...  At least they do in the film.  Could've been that Stargate series, Babylon 5, a Star Trek series like DS9 reruns (Though I don't recall migraine bombs on that series which I watched religiously), Battlestar Galactica...

I don't know anything about the starship troopers series though, and if it was a thing like the movie.

Sounds like the movie Starship Troopers to me. There was a scene where the troopers are pinned down in a complex towards the end. The bugs were just crawling all over the place to get inside. The Plasma Bug shot Plasma from its head. I think it was the Tanker Bugs that shot some kind of Rock/Dirt from its rear. Hopper Bugs, well they were just plain nasty.  :o
Take note that this is not a movie for children.

I'm going to buy that movie just for the hell of it. I do remember seeing parts of the ROUGHNECK's, a Starship Troopers animated series... That show was really cool, and unfortunately the DVD's are almost unobtainable.  :'(

I'm still hoping some Sci-Fi genius can come on in and let me know what show that was.
