I'm not a fan of military sci-fi as it generally feels like an ode to military dictatorships. I know they don't always go that way it's just the vibe I get.

1. Ender's Game
2. Starship Troopers. [I liked the satirical style of the movie way more than the book]
3. no idea.
4. Babylon 5.
5. Soldier? I remember seeing this one but I don't remember the title. His replacement was Jason Scott Lee. Shoot.
Bonus: No idea.
Geek Cred: Play a video game - Last Starfighter.
