Fans of this show might like to know that Fabulous Films is planning to release the first ever official English language DVD of this cult classic TV series "Star Fleet" (X-Bomber). The series was created by the legendary Manga author Gô Nagai. Drawing heavily on diverse influences such as Star Wars, Japanese Anime and Gerry Anderson's various "Supermarionation" series, this stellar series ran for twenty-four half hour episodes on UK TV, beaming to our screens every Saturday morning starting back in October 1982. The English version's theme song was famously covered by Queen member Brian May and Eddie Van Halen. This will be the first time this brilliant series has been available on DVD!
