As reported by, the effects house behind Voyager and Babylon 5, Foundation Imaging, is pushing forward with a television series based on the FASA game, Mechwarrior (originally named Battletech). Foundation’s credits include: Roughnecks: Starship Trooper Chronicles, Deep Space Nine, and Dawson’s Creek (Effects from “The Storm”)

What’s more, Star Trek veteran writer (script and novel), D.C. Fontana, is onboard to help write it.

I never got to see Roughnecks, but I’ve heard nothing but excellent reviews about the show’s animation and scripting quality.
