It is the year 2914. The Gamilons, an enemy of undetermined form, begin an invasion of Earth. The nations of Earth pool their forces and fight back, but their armies are defeated and most of humanity wiped out.
Five years later, in 2199, Earth has been polluted by space-to-planet bombs, and those who remain alive have fled underground. Even the former top pilot, Susume Kodai, has left the military. One day as he is exploring above-ground, a mysterious object falls out of the sky. This is a communication capsule from the planet of Iscandar, which is more than 148,000 light years away.Apparently, on Iscandar is equipment that will eliminate the radiation. The Defense Force of Earth equips the Space Battleship Yamato with a previously unknown propulsion system, a wave-motion engine based on plans found in the capsule.
Kodai rejoins the Force, and resolves to set out aboard the Yamato. With the fate of Earth in their hands, the crew blasts off for distant Iscandar. With only one year left until the radiation drives humanity to extinction, Kodai's greatest battle ever has begun.
