The gold of Rhein has been stolen by Alberich, a member of an ancient race that ruled the universe. He has tricked Tadashi Daiba into making the Ring of the Niebelung, a device that will allow him to restore their power, which will eventually lead to chaos and destruction. But the ancient Gods have awoken and demand their legacy restored to them. It's up to Harlock, Esmeralda, Tochiro, Tadeshi and the rest of the crew of Arcadia to prevent the war that will devour the universe.
In the future, mankind will venture to the far reaches of the cosmos using technologically advanced trains, perhaps the least likely method of intergalactic travel. The fleet of Galaxy Railways transports countless galactic citizens from one exotic planet to the next, protected by the SDF, the elite force protecting the Railways Fleet against terrorists, meteor storms and malicious alien life. These are the stories of those that travel the Galaxy Railways system and the people that are sworn to protect it. No one knows these stories better than Layla Destiny Shura, the leader of the system with the uncanny ability to see the fates of all those who travel on the Galaxy Railways.
Years have passed since Captain Harlock disbanded the crew of the starship Arcadia, and he has not been seen since. Most of the space pirates are now either in hiding or are being imprisoned by the new Earth government, which is being run by the invading race called Illumidas. One day, however, Harlock resurfaces in the nick of time to save the life of young Tadashi Daiba, just moments after his father Professor Daiba was killed by the mysterious beings called Nu. Now, the two will join forces and once again the Arcadia will take to the skies with the reunited crew, in an attempt to save the galaxy from the Nu.
