Finally arriving on Iscandar, the crew of Yamato learns that Earth may no longer be worthy of salvation. Susumu Kodai discovers the fate of his elder brother.



  • Like the original series, the Iscandarian race is nearly extinct, with only two of their people remaining on the planet. Unlike the original, though, Queen Starsha does not divulge the reason for their demise in the current series, saying only that "Iscandar's people sleep below," in a graveyard outside the royal palace.
  • Along with Mamoru Kodai, another member of the Yukikaze crew, first officer Eiji Ishizu, had been captured by Garmillas forces as a "a bio-sample of humanity." Ishizu did not survive the crash on Iscandar, and his burial site is located near that of his commanding officer.


  • What is the sphere of energy that Queen Starsha speaks with about her dilemma? (answer)
