Yamato is a cross between Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica (the reboot). It has more in common with the latter but it's not as dark, which I like. The Yamato is humanity's first FTL-capable warp ship and they're on a mission to save humanity from the Gamilus, who are siege-bombing Earth. The series started April 2012, it's got 26 episodes, and they've released maybe 14. There was a live action movie, but this is much better because they don't have to squeeze everything in 2 hours.
