Yamato, Take Off: The Challenge of 296,000 Light Years

Star BlazersD minus 363 days: With the Menace Missile successfully evaded, Captain Avatar and the crew make ready for a hitherto unattempted (and incredibly dangerous) space warp. If the calculations for the jump across space are off by even the tiniest margin, the Argo and its crew – and the hopes of Earth – will be lost forever. As if there aren’t already hazards aplenty during this vital stage of the mission, a Gamilon gunship plunges deep into Earth’s solar system on a mission to destroy the Argo before her journey can even begin. Wildstar leads the Black Tiger Squadron into battle for the first time, and almost learns what it means to lose someone under *his* command.
