After the events of Invasion, Johnny Rico has been demoted to the rank of colonel and relocated to a Martian space station to train a new batch of troopers. Unfortunately, his squad is incompetent. Mars overall has low support for the war, seeing their planet unaffected by the bug conflict and even suggesting pulling out from the war. Because of their laid-back attitude, the denizens of Mars aren't ready when the bugs attacked. Unknown to everyone, Sky Marshal Amy Snapp executes her plans for power.

Snapp plans to destroy Mars while gaining popular support for doing it. She was well aware of the bug nest growing under Mars for some time but decides to take advantage of the bug attack to gain social and political support to scuttle the whole planet. She stages a fleet attack run on the Arachnid Quarantine Zone (AQZ) as a massive distraction. While no one notices, she plans to capture General Carl Jenkins, then fabricate a story in which the Federation was too distracted in the AQZ to save Mars and had to detonate a Q-Bomb (a planet destroyer whose power was demonstrated in the third film, Marauder) to cleanse the bug threat, thus blaming Jenkins for the loss of Mars. However things don't go according to her plan.

During the bug attack, Rico and his team survive the initial assault and manage to land on the Mars surface. While the bulk of the Federation start their attack run on the AQZ, Snapp captures Jenkins and disrupts all communications between Earth and Mars. However, before he was captured, Jenkins telepathically reached out to Carmen Ibanez to come back to Mars. Because Ibanez and Jenkins are trusted friends, Carmen redirects her ship back to Mars. Meanwhile, during a bug attack, Rico's troopers are found by a rescue drop ship and everyone makes it on board except for Rico, whom the team presumes dead. When regaining consciousness, Rico sees his dead lover, Dizzy Flores, who was killed in the first film, who asks him to help stop the Q-Bomb. Unknown to Rico, Dizzy is a telepathic projection from Jenkins. While being beaten and drugged by Snapp, Jenkins manages to telepathically motivate Rico to help stop the Q-Bomb. Snapp then publicly announces the fall of Mars.

Rico's surviving troopers realize he is alive and return to save him. Upon reuniting, the team heads towards the weather control tower to disarm the Q-Bomb. They overload the tower's systems to improvise a massive explosive device to thin out the enemy forces. With the Fed-Net back online, public reception of Snapp turns negative. Carmen arrives with a drop ship and rescues Rico's surviving team. Once evacuated, the tower's destruction destroys the bugs within its blast radius.

In the aftermath, Jenkins breaks free from his captors and later returns to power. Rico is promoted back to the rank of general and leads the operation to reclaim Mars, while Snapp's treachery is revealed to the public.

  • Casper Van Dien as Col. Johnny Rico, a demoted general stationed on the frontier planet of Mars forced to train rather hopeless soldiers.
  • Dina Meyer as Dizzy Flores, Rico's deceased lover who appears as a telepathic hallucination induced by Carl Jenkins to inspire him.
  • Justin Doran as Gen. Carl Jenkins, Minister of Paranormal Warfare.
  • Luci Christian as Capt. Carmen Ibanez, of the John A. Warden.
  • Emily Neves as Sky Marshal Amy Snapp, a genius who wishes to destroy Mars for political and social support.
  • Scott Gibbs as Lt. Toshi Baba
  • DeRay Davis as Corp. "One-Oh-One", a trigger-happy explosives expert.
  • Juliet Simmons as Tami Camacho, only female in the squad.
  • Chris Gibson as Dutch Cantor, a red-haired jokester who was known for always being dismembered in simulations. KIA in the same way.
  • Greg Ayres as Private 2nd Class Geo Malik. A quiet soldier with a penchant for science over combat, also known for his distinctive goggles.
  • Leraldo Anzaldua as Sgt. Major Guy "Ratzass" Cunningham, now Rico's right-hand man after the events of Invasion. His rowdiness has settled down as his reputation grows throughout the Federation. As the first recurring character in the Starship Troopers series aside from Rico, Jenkins and Ibanez, he's KIA when jumping from a gunship, as his helmet air seal fails, freezing his body in freefall.
  • John Swasey as George Baba, Lt. Baba's cousin and a pilot of Martian National Guard. KIA after his ship was damaged by a plasma bug, crashing directly into it, sacrificing himself.
  • Ashley Forshaw as Bug scream
  • Andrew Love as Fed Net Official
  • Kyle C. Jones as Daniel
  • Rob Mungle as Special Branch Chief Torek
  • Maggie Flecknoe as Sana the Ticket Agent
