Post the best space anime

what is the best space anime, and what makes it the best, is it the battles, the plot... or is it the freedom/thought of going anywhere, where there are no boundries and no rules

Planetes. Character development, plausible real world setting, and overall production quality.

In theory, Planetes, but I guess TC wants something with action and big battles and Planetes doesn't have it. I would recommend Legend of Galactic Heroes.

Macross Frontier - good char development, good soundtrack, cool fights, interesting ideas (some not quite the first time in SiFi history though). Downside for me is

Stellvia of the Universe is one of the best space anime's ive seen. Its got a great plot, great character developement, and good animation. The characters are really likeable, and you really can relate to them. This anime is slice of life/romance/mecha/space anime, i think you will enjoy it!

Gundam Seed and its sequel Gundam Seed Destiny this anime is also one of my favorites. Theres romance, and mecha and part of it takes place in space but not all of it. I absolutey adore this anime, because of the characters and plot and the beautiful artwork!

perhaps Heroic Age =3
it all depends on what you're looking for
Tenchi Muyo GXP is more comedy based
Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny are more mecha, but I must say that the ending was crap of Gundam Seed Destiny (though still good to watch)
Heroic Age is also more mecha and takes place entirely in space (Gundam not only takes place in space but also on Earth partly)
Infinite Ryuuvis is very character driven and more realistic, basically it is what you get when people get locked up in a space station for a long period of time and the mecha action isn't as fast pacing as in Gundam Seed (since their robot actually abides the rules of 0 gravity)

Gundam Seed: C.E. 73 Stargazer: it features the rare Stargazer
Macross Frontier: best Macross series IMO
Moonlight Mile: realistic space travelling
Planetes: same director as Code Geass and Infinite Ryvius
Soul Link: surviving space terrorism

Planetes: funny and serious too, manga is better though
LotGH: epic, very loooooong but not boring, Tytania is quite disappointing compared to it
Macross F: beh, don't bother unless you are satisfied by good animation and music alone

As other people have said I think the easy choice is Plantes, it really made me think about the real problems associated with humans in space.

Crest/Banner of the Stars franchise. It's very talky, but most of the dialogue/banter is well written. And despite the limited amount of action, I find the show is still able to create lots of tension/excitement.

Infinite Ryvius came to mind immediately for me... but the Crest of the Stars series is phenomenal as well and another great recommendation.

I would recommend Planetes, but everybody's way ahead of me there, so I'll just second (third? fourth? fifth?) it. It's truly an incredible anime.

On the other hand, no one ever mentions Toward the Terra. It's not exactly action-packed either, but it's definitely one of the best sci-fi series out there. The plot is intriguing and just keeps getting better as it goes, and you'll fall in love with the characters. It's also got a surprisingly pleasant soundtrack. The unusual artwork probably drives people away from it, which is unfortunate because they're missing out. I loved it just as much -- if not more than -- Planetes.

Stellvia of the Universe because the storyline is awsome when they have to deal with a new threat after the other.

Gundam 00 because the gundams are amazing.

What? No mention of Starship Operators? For shame.

If we're including mecha in the criteria, I really enjoyed the aforementioned Gundam 00 (haven't enjoyed a Gundam anime since Gundam Wing killed my faith in the franchise) and Soukou no Strain. The latter I'm really quite fond of.

Yeah, Infinite Ryvius for me, too - a real space opera that drives you crazy sometimes but really does a great job developing the characters and making you feel what it's like to be trapped in space when the shit hits the fan. On the opposite end of the style spectrum, Outlaw Star for a laid-back and often hilarious series that somehow effectively combines the caper flick, buddy flick, coming-of-age story and harem.
