The film takes place after the events of the third film - though producers are calling it a direct sequel to the first film - on a distant outpost, where a 'Fast Attack Ship' has been dispatched to deal with a bug attack. Their mission is to escort survivors away from the infiltrated base. Before they can, however, Carl Jenkins (Neil Patrick Harris' character from the first film) takes the ship off course on another mission

The troopers of two starships have joined forces to terminate a massive bug attack at a federation outpost. Before the mission can be completed and the survivors evacuated, one ship abruptly departs and goes inexplicably dark. The remaining battle-hardened troopers race to the rescue, only to discover that the threat from the bugs is about to hit home. With the latest in CGI technology, this film from executive Producer Casper Van Dien and Director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) features the return of fan favorite characters Johnny Rico, Captain Ibanez and Carl Jenkins.
