Synopsis: For decades, the Galactic Empire has been locked in an interstellar war with the Free Planets Alliance, a conflict that involves thousands of spaceships and millions of soldiers on both sides. Two new commanders enter the conflict with great hopes: Imperial Admiral Reinhard von Lohengramm and the Free Planets Alliance's Yang Wen-Li. As they deal with superiors and subordinates, maneuver through complicated political arrangements, plot strategies, and win battles, each will be tested, and ultimately, changed, by the reality of war.
Notes: This is the laserdisc rip and not the recent DVD version. Also, the subs cannot be turned off at will.
UPDATE 3/24/12: I have been informed that Episode 13 is CORRUPT, and it's confirmed that it is so. I received this file in that condition, and thus you may want to retrieve a good copy from Central Anime's DVDrip version (search around).
