The name or term "Rodger Young" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Rodger Young (disambiguation).

The Rodger Young (176) was a Corvette Transport in the United Citizen Federation Fleet.


While underway, the ship was damaged when its communications array was hit by an asteroid. Shortly afterwards, the Rodger Young was repaired and a different type of command module was added to the structure before she was able to return to active service. The Rodger Young took part in the massive Battle of Klendathu, and was one of the few ships that managed to survive the disaster with only moderate damage.

The ship was later destroyed in the Invasion of Planet P when a Plasma burst tore the ship in two.

During these events, Carmen Ibanez was assigned as a pilot of the Rodger Young, under the supervision of Zander Barcalow. Starship Troopers

  • The ship is named after Rodger Wilton Young, a private who posthumously earned the Medal of Honor in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
  • A continuity error involving the Rodger Young can be seen in the film Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. During a scene showing the York, at least two Corvette Transports appear in the shot that bear the same ship number as the Rodger Young, which was 176. This error is due to the fact that the models of the Corvette Transports used in the third film were models of the Rodger Young that were left over after the production of the first film.
