Storyline

In the year 2199, Earth is invaded by an extraterrestrial race known as the Gamilas, who hail from a dying planet and decide to make Earth their new home. The Gamilas proceed to rain radioactive bombs on Earth, rendering the planet's surface arid and uninhabitable (but hospitable for their race). Earth's space fleet is hopelessly outclassed by the Gamilas and all seems lost... until a mysterious space probe is retrieved on Mars. The probe contains blueprints, and a message from Queen Starsha of the planet Iscandar, who claims to have a device which can cleanse Earth of its radiation damage. The blueprints are of a supercraft that can enable any ship to head to Iscandar (situated in another galaxy) and back in a year, and with these plans the denizens of Earth secretly rebuild a Japanese battleship, the Yamato, into a great space battleship. A small but intrepid crew of 114 departs for Iscandar in the Yamato to acquire the device... but with the menace of the Gamilas, can they succeed ... Written by Q. Leo Rahman

Starblazers Theme

Lyrics for Starblazers Opening Theme (1st Season)

We're off to outer space We're leaving Mother Earth To save the human race Our Star Blazers

Searching for a distant star Heading off to Iscandar Leaving all we love behind Who knows what danger we'll find?

We must be strong and brave Our home we've got to save If we don't in just one year Mother Earth will disappear

Fighting with the Gamilons We won't stop until we've won Then we'll return and when we arrive The Earth will survive With our Star Blazers

Opeming Theme for Second Season

We're off to outer space We're leaving mother Earth To save the human race Our Star Blazers

A cry for help, a desperate plight Makes our Star Force reunite As we rush to meet our fate The Comet Empire awaits

We must be strong and brave To stop its evil ways If Zordar's plot should work He'll destroy the universe

We'll fight the Comet Empire Battle through the raining fire Filled with the hope that Earth will survive We'll keep peace alive with Our Star Blazers
