2201: Yamato Returns!

Star Blazers2201 A.D.: In the year it has taken Earth to recover from the Gamilon holocaust, more distant reaches of space – twice as far from Earth as Iscandar – have been falling to the might of the Comet Empire, under the command of Prince Zordar. Worse still, Zordar has his sights set on Earth – and Leader Desslok, having barely escaped his last encounter with the Star Force, has joined the Comet Empire as a military advisor. Desslok’s goal is not the greater glory of the Comet Empire, but his own vengeance against the crew of the Argo. The Argo is now commanded by Deputy Captain Derek Wildstar, and many of her crew members have been reassigned to other duties. Nova, Sandor, Dr. Sane and IQ-9 have been stationed on Earth, while Wildstar and Homer are among the few original crew members on the Argo for the ship’s security patrol of the outer solar system.

The Comet Empire’s first attack in Earth space is unsuccessful, and the Argo barely escapes – but Wildstar suspects that his unknown attackers are only beginning to make their presence known.
