In the year 2050, Earth is invaded by the alien Godom race, known rather more grandly in the Western version as the Force of Death. Ninety percent of humanity is wiped out, but their last hope lies in the secret Point N1 Base on Minamidori Island. There, the great aircraft carrier Blue Noah is nearing completion. With a young crew led by the inventor's son Makoto Kusaka (Earth commander's son Colin Collins in the U.S. version), it launches fighters to save the world, but the project isn't yet complete, and the ship must get to other secret Points to complete its construction, powered by a pendant passed on to the hero by his dying father.

As if taking a WWII battleship and sending it on a star trek wasn't ludicrous enough, this Earthbound follow-up to Star Blazers somehow failed to recapture the magic of its predecessor. It wasn't until episode 21 that the ship justified its "Space Carrier" title, picking up a star drive at Point N9 that finally allowed it to get out of the water. Though 27 episodes were made, the first 4 were not shown in their original form but cut together into a feature-length "TV special" to open the series. Unlike the Yamato, however, the Blue Noah did not return for a sequel. See also Odin, another attempt by producer Yoshinobu Nishizaki to make money out of ships sailing in space.
