Starship Troopers filmEdit
- "It's an ugly planet; a Bug planet. A planet hostile to life as we know it."
- —FedNet Correspondant[src]
The planet orbits a twin star system; one blue and one yellow. It has two moons and borders an asteroid belt that has an unlimited surplus of asteroids that are presumably the remains of Klendathu's twin world. The surface of the planet contains a breathable atmosphere but is arid and extremely mountainous.
After the destruction of a Terran capital city in the Earth, Buenos Aires (unprovoked by the Bugs), Sky Marshal Dienes launches a full scale invasion of Klendathu — which ended in disaster, costing 300,000 Mobile Infantry their lives, the destruction of several ships and damage of many others.
- The name Klendathu means Triangular in the Zulu language.
