Just remember to send the battleships at the enemy in a really close formation, so one enemy hit will cripple several ships. Also, don't worry about ammo, it's unlimited. Shoot each bug hundreds of times at least, even after it's been blown to bits.

Now all we need is beer, a football, and an electric violin.

I've been saying that maybe these are meteors knocked to Earth by the big one. Things the size of baseballs and Volvos.

The asteroid our government blames on Klendathu was an inside job. Wake up, sheeple!

That movie was painfully bad.  Which is a shame because the book is virtually tailor made for a big sci fi flick.

If an asteroid comes around again, just send up Will Smith, Michael Ironside, Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Dean Cain, Brandon Routh and Tom Welling. We'll be fine.

Ftfa: It's a coincidence

No, it's because space debris tends to follow in fairly tight orbits after collisions. It's likely that Earth is plowing into bits of  012 DA14 that broke off due to previous impacts and are now all clustered in roughly the same orbit.

Space is really really farking big. There is an infinitesimally small probability that this is just "coincidence"

Meteorologists are strangely silent on all these meteors. Conspiracy?

They have just tested their second meteorite bomb. We can ill afford a meteorite gap with the Russians.

In science, there's an event called a stochastic process. It happens when you have a system that follows a set of rules, but there's a random nature to it as well, making it hard to predict exactly how things will turn out.

That's not a stochastic process, which is a self correcting process.

Am I the only one who figured that the asteroid impact in Starship Troopers wasn't caused by the insects?  Seriously, traveling across the galaxy at sub-light speeds would take very, very long, meaning the asteroid would have been launched long before humans and bugs had ever met.

You're it until you're dead or I find someone better

- michael ironside

Happy to see so many people enjoyed the movie everyone loves to trash. Personally I greatly enjoyed armageddon AND starship troopers. If they could get the original cast I'd love to see a sequel to armageddon - minus bruce willis of course. But this time, please, no aerosmith.

And the moon has a giant space station with huge turrets on it. And there are ships patrolling earth orbit, and one ship encounters the asteroid but apparently does nothing to calculate the path of this uncharted object/is unable to put in at the nearest port in time to get their hands on a working transmitter after being damaged.

My above joke aside, it's heavily implied.

Verhoeven was probably referencing popular conspiracy theories, such as the idea that FDR "let Pearl Harbor happen," since the whole film is a satire of militarism and propaganda flicks.
