May 4, 2005 – BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA – Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation was honored by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films with the award for Best DVD Release for 2004. The 31st annual Saturn Awards, honoring the fine cinematic achievements in film and television programs, was held May 3, 2005, in Los Angeles, California. Accepting the award was producer Jon Davison.

“I am very pleased the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror has voted Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation Best DVD Release of 2004. It means so much to producer Jon Davison and myself that this society has honored us with a Saturn Award because it is for all the fans of Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror that we love making these pictures,” said Phil Tippett, award-winning visual effects supervisor and animation pioneer, who made his directorial debut with the direct-to-video release of Starship Troopers 2.

In Starship Troopers 2, a group of soldiers find themselves stranded on a remote outpost of an alien planet and are terrorized by enemies both seen and unseen in the sequel to the successful sci-fi adventure Starship Troopers. Visual effects supervisor Eric Leven led his team of artists in creating massive armies of warrior bugs as well as other surprising digital horrors designed to squash the soldiers’ chances for survival.
