2199 AD. Yamato tried to leave behind the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy, after receiving a "Cosmo Reverse System" at its destination, Iscandar. However, suddenly, it encounters a mysterious group at the edge of the Large Magellanic Cloud. The crew finds out that the group is called the "Gatlantis," and that its leader is the Gutaba expeditionary force commander who calls himself "Goran Dagaamu of Thunder." The commander demands that Yamato be handed over to him. Yamato, wanting to hurry to Earth, escapes the fray. However, Yamato is attacked by a devastating beam weapon called the "Flame Direct Attack Cannon" that can transcend space.

Yamato was able to retreat, but ends up getting lost, and finds itself in a strangely colored irregular dimension. The crew decides to turn off the engine on the ship, and explore a mysterious planet. In order to collect information, Kodai, Kiryū, Sawamura, Niimi, and Aihara land on the planet. What they saw when they arrived was a ship that was not supposed to be there.

Dagaamu chases after the traces of Yamato's warp, and also reaches the strangely colored space. The planet on which Yamato landed was in fact what Dagaamu had been looking for all along.

Not much to say, beyond the obvious, this is a MASTERPIECE!

OST, Plot Development, characters, action, EVERYTHING was meticulously done and awesomemely performed!

Art and Animation...just Top Class!

And one thing mesmerized me, as a viewer of the original series: Comet Empire is BACK! It is clear to anyone that knows this series the gatlantean resemblances to the Old Foes (Ships and characters), and when the Prime Minister appeared, I thought "That is Zordar's daughter!" and the doubt vanished completely when the old Comet Empire Theme sounded, as the Gatlantean ships were on attack at the end! Of course they kept in suspense but it ...

Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199: Hoshimeguru Hakobune (2014)

Do I wish I saw this before finishing off the season? Yes absolutely.
One reason, however, I am glad I didn't was because although it was pretty good it was not quite as good as the main show. This is because being a film being shoved in between a series it is rushed. You get some pretty quick-moving storytelling and things are skipped over. One minute it's wow! look at that giant structure and next minute like it is just a background object.

The story is just, oh look more bad guys but now they are like Vikings with ...
