Space Battleship Yamato Wiki

Epidora, immediately before its destruction

Epidora is a ringed gas giant occupying the fourth planetary orbit of the Salezar system, near the orbit of the planets Garmillas and Iscandar.

Despite its proximity to Garmillas, a significant Garmillan presence is not maintained at Epidora. In 2199, the Earth battleship Yamato takes advantage of this and warps to Epidora, in order to hide its entry into the Salezar system and plan a safe approach to Iscandar. Nevertheless, the ship is quickly detected and fired upon with a wave motion gun ("The Planet That We Head For"). The beam misses Yamato but hits Epidora, blasting a portion of the planet's mass into space and causing the remainder to collapse ("One Man's War").
