Yamato: The New Voyage (宇宙戦艦ヤマト 新たなる旅立ち, Uchū Senkan Yamato Aratanaru Tabidachi, lit. "Space Battleship Yamato: The New Journey"), also known as Bon Voyage Yamato, is a 1979 Japanese animated television movie that was first broadcast on Fuji TV. This was the third movie in the Space Battleship Yamato saga (however, Be Forever Yamato is the third theatrical movie). The Yamato crew must defeat the new Dark Nebula Empire.[1] This film is the first in a two-part story arc that continues in Be Forever Yamato.


During a seemingly standard training mission a month after the war with the White Comet Empire, the crew of the Yamato face a new enemy: the mysterious Dark Nebula Empire. Kodai, Shima, Yuki, and the rest of the ship's crew have to ally with ex-enemy Desslar in order to foil the Dark Nebula's plans of strip mining Iscandar - the home planet of old friend Starsha, who helped the crew during their first voyage.
