Gene Starwind and Jim Hawkins make a living on various jobs and bounties. While waiting for their ticket to hit it big time, a mysterious woman named Hilda leaves them with a key to the puzzle of finding a starship of great power, known only as the Outlaw Star. What are these long lost spaceships and what is the Galactic Leyline?
Outlaw Star and Arcadia of My Youth are all about space operas spiced with rebel ships and plenty of action to boot. Both are seasoned with plenty of cheese and take place in a distant future in which several factions are in conflict. Outlaw Star has plenty of humour and does not take itself too seriously for the most part while Arcadia of My Youth is greatly dramatic but there are enough space related battles going on to assure that these titles could share the same fanbase.
The planet Lar Metal exists in a state of near-perpetual winter, but every thousand years, it approaches Earth’s orbit and enjoys a fleeting spring. During this short time near Earth, a Millennia Queen is sent over, to rule over mankind in secrecy until her Lar Metalian successor arrives, one millennium later. This exchange has gone on smoothly since the beginning of time, but in the year 1999, the last year of Prometheum’s reign as Queen Millennia, something goes amiss. Lar Metal’s orbit has shifted, setting it on a collision course with Earth. As the distance between the two planets closes and natural disasters ravage Earth’s surface, is there any way for Prometheum to save the planet and people she loves?
Another movie in the Leijiverse.
Both are about the conflict between Earth and a race of aliens, are infatuated with WWII-era weaponry, and provide vague origin information/backstories for recurring characters like Captain Harlock and Emereldas (though it's important to remember that there's no universal continuity in the Leijiverse).
In the year 2199, unrelenting attacks from the planet Gamilus have forced all life on Earth into underground dwellings and raised radiation levels to near-toxic levels. The only way to clean up all this harmful radiation is by using the Cosmo Cleaner, which the Queen of the planet Iscandar has generously offered to humanity. Unfortunately, Iscandar is 148,000 light years away, but Earth only has one year before rising radiation levels make it uninhabitable! The only vessel capable of making the journey is the battleship Yamato - a rusty relic of World War II. Can the crew of the Yamato make it to Iscandar and back before the extinction of all life on Earth?
