In a 2016 interview, Casper Van Dien revealed in an interview about a funny incident when he was picking up his two daughters from school, "I went by the line at school to pick up my kids. You know, you drive up to the school and when I get there and there are these six 10 and 8 year old boys hanging out with my daughters. I pull up in the line and the boys go 'Johnny Rico! Why didn't you tell us your dad was Johnny Rico?' And I said 'What are you boys doing watching STARSHIP TROOPERS?' And they said, 'Our dads made us watch it with them!' Then my daughters get in the car and my 10 year old says 'Dad, were you really naked in STARSHIP TROOPERS?' And I said 'Yeah,' and she said 'How could you do that to me?!' Then my 8 year old says 'Wait, like naked naked?' And I said "Yup," and she said 'Oh my God, my life is ruined!' That was the longest three minute ride home I have had in my life."

Why wouldn't the bugs simply use our own asteroid belt against us?
