I have it on PDF. But only glanced through.

From what I saw it's not bad.

I was able to order a bunch of books very cheaply at the paizo store, so I decided to get them. Not sure if I will actually run the game or just raid it for ideas and stuff for my current homebrew sci fi campaign.

The setting gives options, but at the same time is pretty rigid with the Bugwar...but that's not always a bad thing.

Some of the classes, the bugs themselves, the other alian race, and some of the material presented can indeed be harvested for other game or setting, homebrewed or otherwise.

Great!

Do you know if the RPG was based exclusively on the movie or if any material was pulled from the original Heinlein novel or any of the three movie sequels?
