So, just by reading this, I know the Federation looses. Oh, don't get me wrong, this was a great fanfiction, and I loved the writing style. It certainly captured the movie in my mind, and your take on it. But what about Carmen?
It is a sad thing to say that with Dizzy's death, Rico's loss has him re-attach to Carmen litterally moments after she dies, and he finds the Helmsman flying them out and away... and with him caring for Carmen, when he is back on Planet P, he deliberately ignores his primary objective to lead a rescue team to a separate network of tunnels to save the Helmsman and her Mentor/lover after they crash land... and inadvertantly find the Brain Bug they are looking for, anyway.
No one else, just them and this accident. The brain bug gets away, but not before Rico calls it in, letting the Private Zimm, former Drill Sergeant Zimm, personally lead the actual capture mission to complete the objective...
And thus, I prove that in order for Mankind to survive in Starship Troopers, the Movie, Dizzy sadly needs to die. (NOOOOOO!) Otherwise, they never get the brain bug in time before they are completely rekt.
But, at least take note that Carmen is never ever mentioned in future movies from this point onwards. It is even assumed that she vanishes into the background with no new news or anything, and probably gets shuffled to desk duty in an administration complex somewhere, or becomes a peronal pilot for someone. Or dies. Like Dizzy.
Meanwhile, Zimm is also ignored, and in the third movie, RICO is the Hero of Planet P, with no mention of Carmen, anywhere... Zimm never existed, according to Federation Propaganda...
Also, I see what you did there...
Woul you like to know more?

Hi, I liked reading your story.
You have a good style to narrate, plus I definitely approve of your vision, about how the movie had to handle the matter Dizzy versus Carmen.
In fact I'm pretty sure that there is not a single person who disagrees with you. Carmen has had to suffer a slow and painful death. Or live alone, with only his career as a company. While Rico and Dizzy are happy together.
Great job. illyara

Looks good, much like the movie.

One question. Have you ever read the original book? Because your writing used a lot of terms and incorrectly used the jargon that the author originaly used.

Just discovering this fic, and loving it! I loath Carmen and hated the way the movie ended. Love this.
| SimplyMae chapter 1 . 9/7/2013
You must make this into a full on story... I see so much potential here 3

I can't tell how much of a fan I am for starship troopers. I loved this movie, but there was always one thing that bothered me, and with this chapter you just fixed that problem. You wrote this chapter similar to scene to the movie and made it a lot better with your changes. For this I praise your chapter.

sweet story, always wanted Dizzy to live.
| Lady Shaye chapter 1 . 12/15/2012
Oh my God, I HATED it when they killed off Dizzy.
And though this was pretty good, I have to say my favorite part was in your A/N: "I only need one person to read it and enjoy it to know I'm doing a good job."
That is the perfect outlook.
But, hey, I'm not here to talk about your author's note. I'm here to say that you did a great job, gave me the ending that I wanted, and made me smile. So, thank you. :)

Pretty good, but it lacks a bit in creativity. Most of it is basically ripped off of movie. Was hoping for an original alternate ending, but I will keep my eye on this.
| TheRoninofDarkness chapter 1 . 9/27/2012
Good fic I agree what they did with dizzy to and hopefully have more chapters soon

Nicely done! Good that you saved Dizzy.
I'm usually a fan of canon pairings, but for me Carmen Ibanez acted nasty to Rico, she don't deserve him.
Good Luck for your novel.

well done. I enjoyed it I didn't like the them killing Dizzy off or the implied making up of Rico and Carmen (I prefer Rico and Diz over Rico and Carmen). I would be interested to know where you think the relationship goes from there I just watched the movie and am wondering where it would have gone if she had not died. How would she have reacted to Carmen's return? How would this affect their relationship? Do they stay in the army? etc... Maybe you could do another one shot?
