A distant supernova triggered a huge electromagnetic pulse that brought mankind to the verge of extinction 189 years ago. With 99% of Earth's population destroyed, humanity has built huge space stations called "foundations" to try and prevent another such catastrophe. In 2356, 15-year-old Shima Katase passes the entrance exams for the Space Academy and sets out for the foundation Stellvia, hoping that she'll be ready to help out with the Great Mission, a plan to stop the aftershock from the first disaster causing more damage. First, though, she has to make friends, enemies, and rivals, and overcome her own fears and grow up. Yes, it's a high school story set in space. We've been on similar territory before, with the sublime Gunbuster exploring the insecurities of growing up enhanced by the time dilation effect, and a whole host of lesser stories starring an overly large cast of cute, slightly klutzy girls who are not the star student but try so hard that they eventually save the day. Parallels grow even stronger when the crew of the Stellvia find themselves having to deal with an alien attack. Writer-director Sato doesn't bring anything new to the table for Stellvia, despite its pretty design and animation-compare to Battle Athletes.
