The photon ship Starlight sets sail from the orbital space colony City of Einstein, en route for Jupiter. Along the way, crew member Akira picks up Sarah, the last survivor of the spacewreck Alford. Sarah is receiving telepathic messages from what she believes to be an alien spacecraft near one of the moons of Uranus. Disobeying orders, the younger members of the crew change course for the alien craft's distant destination, planet Odin.

A beautifully designed film, its already shaky story line was dealt irreparable damage through the removal of 45 minutes of footage and a dire English-language script and dub. The story of a youthful crew and experienced skipper setting out in a spacegoing sailing ship on a dangerous mission inspired by a mysterious and beautiful girl had already been done with enormous success in Star Blazers, and less so with Thundersub. Either producer Yoshinobu Nishizaki wanted to prove that he could repeat that success without help from his former collaborators Leiji Matsumoto and Noboru Ishiguro, or else he is a one-trick pony when it comes to story-lining SF shows. Yet despite the gorgeous design and a skilled crew including Tezuka veteran Yamamoto and "advice" from Nora-creator Satomi Mikuriya, Nishizaki's new version never takes off.
