In 2199, five years after the Gamilas launch attacks on Earth, the planet has been ravaged by the aliens' radiation bombs and the remnants of humanity have moved underground. One day, former pilot Susumu Kodai discovers a message capsule sent from the planet Iskandar that tells of a device that can remove the radiation from the Earth's surface. The United Nations of Space Administration rebuilds the battleship Yamato, with a new type of propulsion system - the Wave Motion Engine. This enables her to make the long voyage to Iskandar and back in hopes of saving the Earth. Within 73 days, the radiation will drive the rest of humanity to extinction and the Gamilas will inhabit the Earth.Written by
In the Uchû senkan Yamato (1974) series, Yuki Mori was the only female crew member on the Yamato. Because of this, two of the male characters in Uchû senkan Yamato (1974) (Aihara and Doctor Sado) were revised to appear as female officers in this film. See more »
Attention, all remaining ships and battle groups. We will retreat. We no longer have a single ship that can prevail.
Captain Okita, this is Yukikaze, Captain Mamoru Kodai! I cannot obey your command to withdraw! I could never show my face to the friends I've lost!
Whether you agree with it or not, the withdrawal is my order, Kodai. We're all that's left to defend the Earth. A true man bears the humiliation of today for the sake of tomorrow.
I don't think so! Even if it's hopeless, we can still ...

Unlike the American and Japanese viewers I never grew up with this in its anime form so for me it was a first taste of the franchise, and I have to say that I loved every minute of it.
I don't see any Star Trek riffs, what I see is a story about honour, loyalty to loved ones and home and a damned good tale of adventure. I saw this in Matsudo over New Year with my lady friend and we both loved it. From the stirring opening battle to the dramatic climax I was gripped.
This is light years from the cold war posturing of Star Trek, it's all about the Japanese and their ties to an iconic WW2 warship, and what it means to them. It was built to protect them from the Americans in WW2, and in space it is sent to protect mankind. (Star Trek was a rip off of Forbidden Planet anyway, so we won't dwell too much on that shall we?)
The effects are stunning. I have since seen a few episodes of the anime on You Tube and everything is spot on... the Yamato herself has to be one of the most striking spacecraft ever to set sail for the stars.
I love it... 10/10
