Uchuu senkan Yamato

{GAMILUS}Mankind is facing extinction in one year
due to Gamilus' radioactive meteor bombs.

{SORE}The radioactive poison purifier is on
Iscandar, which is 148,000 light years away.

{ISCANDAR}In order to reach Iscandar, we
have to exceed the speed of light.

{KOUSITE}So a warp test was carried
out and it was successful.

{YAMATO}The Yamato became the first spaceship
from Earth to exceed the speed of light.

{SHIKASHI}But the Yamato's
armor plating cracked.

{YAMATO}Still, the Yamato
overcame this hardship...

{YAMATO}...and is about to begin a space
journey of 148,000 light years.

The Yamato has left Mars.

It's alright.
Turn it off.

Earth finally developed a ship that can
travel faster than the speed of light.

It's almost impossible for
current Earth technology.

I wonder if they've received
aid from another planet.

We have to destroy the Yamato to
save face for the Pluto frontline base.

The ship is shaking.
Shima, slow the ship down.

Captain, our repairs
might have failed.

No, it's the engine.

Engineer Yabu, there is an unusual
vibration. Hurry and check.

I can't control it.


Captain, a gravity
field is acting on us.


It's Jupiter.

{MOKUSEI}Jupiter orbits
the Sun every 12 years.

{CHOKKEI}Jupiter's diameter is
11 times of Earth.

{CHOKKEI}Its mass is 300 times, and its volume
is more than 1000 times that of Earth's.

{SHIKASHI}We don't know if
there is solid land.

If there is, the core could be pasty
liquid hydrogen and hydrogen metal.

{SAIJOUSOU}There's a cloud of ammonia
in the outer layer...

{SAIJOUSOU}...and its thickness is
several thousand kilometers.

Captain, once the Yamato is pulled
into the high-density sea of methane...

...it won't be
able to get out.

This isn't the time
to worry about that.

Captain, there's a failure in
the energy transfer pipe.

Captain, the Yamato is being
pulled in even farther.

Raise the bow. Try to prevent entering
the sea of methane as much as possible.

Aye, sir.

Gravity is very strong, and
the pressure is increasing.

The radar is detecting
an unidentified object.

Is it a ship ?

No, it's a lot bigger.

Switch to the
infrared monitor.

It's no good ! The image isn't clear,
because of the sea of methane.

Prepare the shock cannons.

Wait, Kodai.

A floating island.

The floating island is
about the size of Australia.

It revolves in a fixed orbit in the
clouds, or the sea of methane.

Shima, emergency landing.

Land on the floating island.

Thank goodness.

We can repair the
energy transfer pipe.

Chief navigator,
I'm counting on you.


Shima, don't go
under the island.

The Yamato can't withstand such
pressure, and it'll be crushed.


The Yamato appears to have landed
on the floating island of Jupiter.

Landed on the
floating island ?

Do they even know that
there's another frontline base ?

It could have been pulled
in by Jupiter's gravity.

The Desler Medal is mine.

Tell the floating island
base to find the Yamato.

Aye, sir.

Hey Robot,
how's the outside ?

Have you found any
problems around the Yamato ?

Thick steam. Vision 2 meters,
methane 67%, carbonic acid gas 21%.

No problem.

No problem.

Chief Engineer, how's the repair work ?

The energy transfer pipe has melted
and broken. Please, give me a while.

To the frontline base on the floating island,
I'm relaying Commander Shultz's orders.

Launch a space combat boat
and investigate the Yamato.

Unidentified flying object.

On the infrared video monitor.

I can't identify it.
There's only one.

I'll go.


The target is
closing rapidly.

How brave to come by yourself,
but I can't let you see the Yamato.


He's good.

How impudent. Order an intensive
missile attack to destroy the Yamato.

Aye, sir.

Captain, if we accelerate using the
velocity of the floating island...

...the Yamato should be able to
leave the gravity field of Jupiter.

Alright, proceed.

Prepare to launch
missiles continuously.

Open all silos.


Repairs on the energy
transfer pipe are finished.

Alright, start
the sub-engines.

Starting the sub-engines.

Contacting the starter motor.

Two seconds to
engage the flywheel.


Motor revolution 80... 90...
The gyrocompass has activated.

Wave Motion engine
activation key inserted.

Unlock the pressure plate.

Contacting the energy
point in ten seconds...







Incoming missiles !






All ahead full.
Pitch angle 32 degrees. Take off.

Acceleration is normal. Escape velocity
reached. Take off is successful.

Where was the launch
site of those missiles ?

3000 km east southeast from here.

Oh, this floating island
is also a Gamilus base.

All hands, the Yamato will fly at maximum
throttle to escape the gravity field.

Fasten safety belts.

Captain, let me destroy
the Gamilus base.

Kodai, escape is our
first priority now.

Shima, go at full power to catch up to
the floating island and match its orbit.

Same orbit ?

Yes, hurry.

Aye, sir.

Captain, we've matched
the floating island's orbit.

Alright, main staff, come to
the central planning room.

{KORE}That is the Yamato. One more orbit,
and we'll catch up to the floating island.

{KYUU}It's an emergency,
so I'll explain briefly.

{YAMATO}The Yamato is going at full power
in the orbit of the floating island...

{YAMATO}...and it'll catch
up at this point.

{SEIKAKU}More precisely, 100,000 km
up and behind the island.



Destroy the Gamilus base.

But we can't afford to waste time,
so you have to do it in one shot.

Captain, it's the
Wave Motion gun, isn't it ?

Wait, won't it be too
risky without testing it first ?

The Yamato might be
damaged by the shock.


Do it. All the tests have to be
finished as early as possible.


Mr. Sanada, let's do it.

Failing now or later won't
make much of a difference.

In any case,
let's do our best.

Kodai, let me explain how
the Wave Motion gun works.

The Wave Motion gun uses the energy
directly from the Wave Motion engine.

{KONO}Its energy is as big
as a small galaxy.

{KORE}This energy is charged
and fired in one direction.

{SONOTAME}So, after it fires, the engine
loses all power and thrust.

{FUTATABI}In order to restart
the Wave Motion engine...

{FUTATABI}...all the ship's electricity
must be turned off and saved.

All hands, take your
positions at once.

Commander, the Yamato is in the
same orbit as the floating island.

What are they going to do ?

Turn off all power.

Aye, sir.

Pressurize the Wave Motion engine.
Close all the emergency valves.

Pressurizing the engine.
Closing the emergency valves.

Open the channel to
the Wave Motion gun.

Opening the channel.

Chamber pressure of the
Wave Motion gun is increasing.

All energy is directed to the Wave Motion
gun. Compulsive injector, activated.

Release the safety device
of the Wave Motion gun.

Releasing safety device
of the Wave Motion gun.

Safety lock is zero. Pressure
is reaching firing level in 02.

Unlocking the final safety.
Pressure is reaching maximum.

Floating island, confirmed.
100,000 km ahead.

Prepare to fire
the Wave Motion gun.

Shima, transfer
control to Kodai.

Kodai, it's yours.
Do it.

Leave it to me.

Aiming the bow
towards the island.

Target scope, open.
Virtual cross hair, visibility is 20.

Target speed is
40 space knots.

Tachyon particle
flow is increasing.

Ten seconds to firing.
Prepare for shock and flash.







Fire !

Commander Shultz,
the island is...

Floating island base,
what happened ?

Respond, floating island base.

No, the Yamato...

Direct the Wave Motion
engine energy to thrusters.

Wave Motion engine started.

Shima, use the overboost. Don't worry
about overheating. Just step on it.

You did it.

We escaped from
Jupiter's gravity.

That was the
Wave Motion gun.

The floating island
itself was destroyed.

Did we commit
something unforgivable ?

We only had to destroy
the Gamilus base, didn't we ?

The Wave Motion gun
is a valuable power...

...but we also realized that it's an excessively
destructive weapon, if we misuse it.

We need to think carefully
before we use it.

The Yamato has
left Jupiter.

On top of that, the Yamato
destroyed the floating island.

What was that weapon ?

What was that...?

What was that...?

Space battleship Yamato,
148,000 light years is far.

Only one year
is given to you.

Earth is waiting for the
radioactive poison purifier...

...while desperately
fighting the contamination.

Mankind is said to face
extinction in 361 days.

361 days left to the
extinction of mankind.

361 days left

The Yamato left Mars, and headed for Jupiter. However, in 2199, Jupiter should be 180 degrees from Mars, back toward Earth.

They must have referred to the Voyager plan, and thought that Jupiter and Mars are close.

Dareno tame da to omotte iruka

In the scene where the Yamato fires the Wave Motion gun, they forgot to remove the Yamato cell, showing it under the trail of the energy.

The chief animator of this episode was Kenzo Koizumi, but Mr. Ashida was credited.
There was no chief animator for the episodes done by Studio Mates here after.
