Actually I have a question (if anyone knows)...what happened to Goer's fleet? Or was that the bit cut from episode 25? The Goer's heading to Gamilas with 3,000 ships, but is still 2 months away when we last saw him in Episode 22.

None of the trailer stuff or spoiler have even mentioned Goer's fleet even once.

Had a chance to read a bit on the Garmillas carriers.

The 3 Guyperon class ships that we saw are three different variants. The blue one is the oldest of the three, the purple one introduces the angled deck, and the green one being the newest model, has triangular frontal edges.

The battle carrier is red because it is the prototype number 1 but I don't know why it is not the name ship. Similarly, the 730m Seguud Class has the first red colored ship as the name ship.

The Yamato Earth Side settings book mentioned that a total of 8 Kongo Class battleships were constructed, 5 of which were lost during the outer space wars. and the remaining 3 received some tuning for the turrets in light of the Garmillas invasion.

Thanks to the precious help of my facebook Yamato 2199 page fans, Robert Worne and Kaichiro Nakano, who provided the translation from japanese to english, here it is, the subtitled version of Chapter 7's Trailer. I hope you like it. Be warned, it does contain a couple of spoilers so...tread lightly.

Subtitles are in both ENGLISH and PORTUGUESE

Had a table top miniatures game today recreating the Battle of Gamilas as depicted in the New Voyages TV movie. Though using ships modified to reflect changes in the Gamilas ship in Yamato 2199. The Gamilas fleet managed to do heavy damage to the Dark Nebula fleet prior to the arrival of ships from Earth. A battle report will came later once I get pictures from the other person's camera, as mine started to fail halfway through the game.

44 Gamilas ships (mostly heavy cruisers) verse 50 Nebulas ships (most larger than Gamilas battlecruisers), with a number of Earth ships that came in at the end to finishe the game after 8 hours.

My source rewatched chapter 7 today and says he misunderstood a couple of things. He'll send me an update asap and i'll make any necessary corrections.

Interesting. I wonder what the scenes that were dropped for the theatrical release will bring to the story. It would likely be a subplot that doesn't effect the main plot, or even it is was, was something they could get away without showing.

Thinking things over a little and depending on how these scenes in episode 25 play out, I've thought of something for the future:

Does anyone know why Garmillas cruisers and destroyers lack anti-air guns?

Unknown. Unless of course they do have them but they are smallish gunports one wouldn't normally see.

However most Gamilas ships seem to have somr kind of missile launcher near the bridge. It might be a version of the stack missiles on Yamato, but then again it could be a type on interception missile to be used against missiles and fighters.

Or just that the Gamilas consider such ships expendable and thus not need such defenses. Especialy since they usually operate in numbers.

As for the other thing about Kodai:

Considering Gatlantis made a cameo with their ships in Domel's introduction episode, it's a safe bet that a sequel will follow Yamato II/Farewell Yamato, unless they decide to go for an all-original series and do Yamato II/Farewell Yamato later.

They've pretty much suggested they intend to go as far as Yamato III by bringing in Hirata in the first series remake.

Farewell yamato was considered non canon later as it created so much rage that they actually did a new season and several movies that would chronologically come after it.
On the other hand we have a dead Okita which is necessary for a Season 3 remake, and bringing him back will be a bit harder this time...

I know all about the fan rage over Farewell Yamato, hence the "/" since Yamato II was a fan-friendly remake of Farewell. Same basic plot, same new introductions, different ending.
Okita didn't come back until Final Yamato, so a season three remake would be perfectly fine. I actually found Okita's sudden and convenient revival for Final, just so he could be killed again for drama, to be a bit contrived, honestly.

Okita didn't come back in Yamato III, only in Final Yamato.

However, from what I've been reading, I can see a way to bring him back for a remake of Final Yamato. The "Spirit of Yamato" so to speak in a new body.

What I was refering to was what state Yamato would be in at the start of the next series.

In Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato, the battleship Yamato is more or less about to become a museum piece, or even scrapped as "old" (even though it is only about a two year old ship at the time in 2201). The new fleet is headed by the newly finished Space Battleship Andromeda, pride of the Defense Council. The crew as gone back to their posting from before or got promotions to new posting. Kodai is the captain of a frigate that escorts freighters in the Solar System. After...stealing...Yamato they eventually pick up Admiral Hijikata from the wrecked outer system patrol fleet and he's made Captain of Yamato, when given an official mission.

In Yamato II, on the other hand, Kodai is still "acting captain" of Yamato as it serves as lead vessel of the inner system patrol fleet that basically escorts freighters around the Solar System. Yamato is due for a refit to make her up to standards for the renewed Earth Defense Forces fleet and Hijikata is the Admiral of the Fleet with his flag on the newly commissioned Space Battleship Andromeda. The crew of Yamato is still mostly scattered back into the fleet or other defense commands with only a few of them actually still stationed on Yamato.

Given Hijikata's pominate position in Yamato 2199's UN Cosmo Navy as the Admiral that takes over from Okita, I imagine he'll get Andromeda in a new series, if he isn't given Yamato from the start as flagship of the fleet. Kodai might maintain his posting, or get a new command, I can't say. But since they now have rank insignia, we can tell if people get propotions or not.

I am wondering what context it is that Kodai and Yuki get new jackets for their Yamato uniforms.
