This masterful blend of humor, adventure and drama has been a smash hit in

countries all over the world...and now it makes a triumphant return to DVD in a

sleek new boxset packed to the brim with amazing extras!

Justy Ueki Tylor had his life all planned out: join the military, get a cushy desk

job, and then retire with a big fat pension check. The perfect plan...until he

wandered into a hostage situation and somehow managed to save an Admiral! Now

Tylor, a man who wouldn't know what discipline was if it bit him in the backside,

has been made Captain of the space cruiser Soyokaze! The crew of this run-down

ship is the craziest, rag-tag team of misfits you're ever likely to see, and

they're not too fond of their complacent new leader. But they had better learn to

work together, because they're about to go head to head with the mighty Raalgon

Empire! For better or for worse, the Earth's fate has been placed in the hands of

a man who's either a total idiot, or an absolute genius...
