[[folder: Crew of the ''Yamato'']]

!!'''Kaoru Niimi'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyaHisakawa

Science & Technology Officer, Intelligence Division. Originally from Kyoto. She's a talented woman in the technical division whom Sanada relies upon, and is one of his juniors from back in the academy. Specialties include enemy tactical and data analysis. She also has a doctorate in psychology and acts as the ship's counselor.

She and Mamoru Kodai were in a relationship, but broke up before the Battle of Pluto.

[[spoiler:She is one of Serizawa's plants in the ship's crew, and a proponent of the scrapped Izumo Plan. She goes along with the mutiny later on, even going so far as to try to seduce Shima, but when she learns of the extreme measures that Ito plans to implement, relents at the last moment.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: Defies Ito during the mutiny when he threatens to shoot a non-collaborating Shima.]]
* HotScientist: The Science & Technology officer (Intelligence Division) of the ''Yamato''. Tag-teams with Sanada for {{Technobabble}} and exposition. [[spoiler:Indeed, she tries to use that womanly charm to get Shima to side with the mutineers, but that didn't quite work out as planned.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: The most visible female example among the cast.
* TheMole: [[spoiler:A major supporter of the Izumo Plan.]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Happens several times in the early episodes as a foreshadowing element.
* SempaiKouhai: She's Sanada's junior from the Academy, and still treats Sanada with more than a little respect, despite his current position as ship XO.

!! '''Akira "Rei" Yamamoto (Jefferson Davis Hardy[[note]]sort of[[/note]])'''
-->'''Voiced in 2199 by:''' Creator/RieTanaka (Japanese), Creator/JeannieTirado (English)

Ensign in the Yamato's accounting division (Purser). Rank: second lieutenant. Originally from Arcadia City on Mars. She wants to join the Yamato's fighter wing, but was initially assigned to the accounting division. She eventually does get reassigned to the fighter wing, and becomes one of the pilots of the two Cosmo Falcon fighters on the ship.

As with many of the crew, her reason to want to be a fighter pilot is a personal one: her older brother, a recon plane pilot, was one of those killed when the Gamilons attacked their home colony on Mars. This has given her an almost irrational need to make sure the aliens pay for what they had done.
* ActionGirl: Trained in hand-to-hand, and a proficient fighter pilot on top of that? Yep.
* {{Ahoge}}: Has a large one, but doesn't display the character traits normally associated with it.
* AlternateCharacterReading: Kodai initially mistakes her name for "Rei", another reading for her given name's kanji.
* AscendedExtra: Sort of. The original Akira didn't become prominent until the ''second'' season, while this series expands on her character right off the bat.
* GenderFlip: Counterpart to a male Black Tiger pilot (most famous for [[GoOutWithASmile Going Out With A Smile]] in the Comet Empire storyline).
* HopelessSuitor: [[spoiler: for Kodai's affections. ]]
* NoPronunciationGuide: In-universe -- Kodai's visibly surprised when he hears Akira's first name, since he assumed ([[ReiAyanamiExpy understandably]]) that the kanji was pronounced "Rei". Akira swiftly explains the situation.
* OddFriendship: [[spoiler:With Melda. The irony is not lost on Akira.]]
* ReiAyanamiExpy: not quite (she's not emptionless - [[HotBlooded quite the opposite in fact]] - but she has red eyes, white hair in the same hairstyle, and the same name as the original.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Her personal vendetta against the Gamillons can get irrational at times.
* SpockSpeak: She speaks in a rather subdued monotone during much of her earlier appearances [[spoiler: before joining the fighter squadron and getting to know Kodai ]]
* StayInTheKitchen: Although Kato doesn't mind her being on the ''Yamato'', he actively objects to her desire to be part of the fighter wing instead of Accounting.
** It had little to do with her being female though, and much more to do with the fact that she's the sister of a close squad-mate who lost his life.

!! '''Makoto Harada'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RinaSato (Japanese), Creator/FeleciaAngelle (English)

Field medic (civilian) assigned to Yamato's medical division. Originally from Akita Prefecture. She worked with Dr. Sado in the central hospital. Does her job briskly. Occasionally assigned as a medic for rescue missions. Has a bright and cheerful personality, but rumor has it that she's much more sensitive to others' feelings than most.
* {{Ahoge}}: Has the largest among the Yamato's female crew.
* AscendedExtra: A genderflipped composite of a ''male'' nurse that assisted Dr. Sado in episodes 12 and 19 of the original series. The other one is also genderflipped but still is an extra.
* CuteClumsyGirl: For a licensed nurse, Makoto is sure clumsy at times. Which makes one worried whenever a major operation has to be done...
** She even aims the stock of a submachinegun at two mutinied soldiers when guarding them.
* HelloNurse: Fills in Yuki's role as Dr. Sado's nurse.
* MsFanservice: Went to the trouble of bringing a {{Meido}} outfit; also has a LatexSpacesuit with a miniskirt and generous breasts.
* OddFriendship: Becomes close with Kato, after both of them accidentally cosplay during the Yamato's farewell party before it leaves the Solar System. [[spoiler:They get married at the end of the series, and she's already pregnant with his child.]]

!! '''Yuria Misaki'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyaUchida (Japanese), Creator/SarahWiedenheft (English)

Assistant Warrant Officer. Cadet, Operations Division. Originally from Yamaguchi prefecture. She serves as essential personnel for Yuki on the ship's third watch. Has an ability to see the invisible and sense the supernatural, but isn't that concerned about it.

Whenever she isn't on duty at the main bridge's radar station, she hosts ''Radio Yamato'', the ship's own radio station, playing contemporary and classic songs by request.

[[spoiler:Her sensitivity to spirits makes her the ideal medium for Yurisha's consciousness to hitchhike on. Whenever Yurisha is in control, Yuria's hair, usually done up in twintails, is left down.]]
* {{Ahoge}}: Obligatory.
* BridgeBunny: Serves as Yuki's understudy on the bridge during third watch.
* CreepyMonotone: [[spoiler:Yet another cue that Yurisha's in control.]]
* GeniusDitz: Capable of having rambling discourses over the mechanics of warp travel and the Wave Motion engine with ''Sanada'', of all people, [[spoiler:but only when Yurishia's in control of course]]. Laughs like a little girl when the away party she's part of was chased by a ''gigantic monster mantid''.
* GirlishPigtails: Whenever Yuria has them is a cue [[spoiler:she's in control of her body. However, if the twintails aren't there, well]]...
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:By Yurisha]].
* ISeeDeadPeople: Not that it bothers her much.
* {{Tsundere}}: Acts this way towards Hoshina, rebutting his [[{{DoggedNiceGuy}}dogged pursuit of her affections]] with an irritated demeanor. [[spoiler: Later, her shock from seeing him wounded by Gamillas soldiers prompts her to confess her feelings for him in episode 20.]]

!! '''Hiroki Shinohara'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/DaisukeHirakawa
Officer in Yamato's tactical division, member of the flight group. Rank: Ensign (or Third-grade Space Lieutenant). A native of Tochigi Prefecture. He is Kato's right-hand man and second in command of the flight group. This long-haired guy is seen as frivolous based on his looks, words and deeds. But in truth, he is a reasonable young man.

He volunteers later on for a near-suicidal flight through the Beemla gate while on a captured Gamilas fighter, in order to scout what lies on the other side. What he finds is a massive 10,000-ship armada waiting (due to a fleet review called by Zoelick at Balun). He manages to escape back to Yamato and report his findings, but was hurt in the process.
* AcePilot: Is the probably the second-best fighter pilot among Kato's subordinates, barring Akira.
* BoisterousBruiser: Loud, flamboyant, yet has the aptitude to back it up when it counts? Yep.
* NumberTwo: To Kato this time around.
* ShipTease: With Akira.

!! '''Shinya Itou'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/ToshihikoSeki

Officer and head of Yamato's security division (Master-at-arms). His rank is Lieutenant Junior Grade (or Second-grade Space Lieutenant). Native of Shiga Prefecture. Came from the Information Bureau, manages Yamato's internal security and police affairs. Always smiles politely when dealing with others, but has a condescending atmosphere.

[[spoiler:Ito is another of Serizawa's plants in the ship's crew, and his trump card to make sure that the Izumo Plan is successful. Late in the series he engineers a hostile takeover of the ships, but his proposed extreme methods, up to and including outright murdering many of those who would go against the mutiny, indirectly scuttles this attempt.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Used to underscore how much of an ass he is.
* FantasticRacism: Ito is a blatant xenophobe, and spent a good bit of his time in the brig ranting that aliens (in this case Yurisha) couldn't be trusted.
** JerkassHasAPoint: Seriously, Yurisha could have forewarned them [[spoiler:that Iskandar was Gamilas' twin planet...]]
* KilledOffForReal: But not before saving Yurisha. He admits to her that, maybe ''some'' aliens aren't as bad as he thought, and asks her to help get Yamato to Iscandar before he dies.
* TheMole: For Serizawa and the Izumo Plan.
* SmugSnake: Is he ever.

!! '''Toru Hoshina'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Motoki Takagi

Member of Yamato's security division. Rank: Warrant Officer. A Tokyo native. A member of the security division who puts all his trust in Ito. A handsome, sociable young man who always wears a smile.

[[spoiler:While he seems to loyally go along with Ito's dubious plans, Toru's ''really'' one of Sanada's subordinates, placed in the security division to watch for possible infiltrators loyal to the Izumo Plan. When the mutiny finally does occur, Toru helps in taking back the ship from the mutineers.]]

Relatively young for a member of the crew, Toru seems to be quietly infatuated with Yuria, which is why he's one of those who was shocked to learn [[spoiler:that Yurisha's been possessing Yuria's body for a while now]].
* CuteShotaroBoy: He's drawn noticeably younger-looking than most of the Yamato's male crew.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Yuria.
* MadeOfIron: Survives a point blank laser pistol shot.
* [[spoiler:ReverseMole: For Sanada, in the security division.]]
* ShipTease: With Yuria.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: [[{{SubvertedTrope}} Subverted.]]]] [[spoiler: He only earns Ito's trust so he can expose his plans to forcefully enact Project Izumo.]]

!! '''Isami Enomoto'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeijiFujiwara (''2199''), Creator/KenjiroTsuda (''2202'') (Japanese), Creator/BryanMassey (English)

Boatswain's mate and senior petty officer. Rank: Space Master Chief Petty Officer. Originally from Aomori prefecture. A veteran NCO in charge of deck operations throughout the ship. Strict with a no-nonsense approach to making decisive, on the spot decisions. His honest personality inspires a fierce loyalty from his subordinates. Prior to his posting aboard Yamato, he was Kodai and Shima's practical skills instructor.
* GreaseMonkey: If there's physical work to be done, you could count on Enomoto to be there doing the grunt work.
* TheMentor: To Kodai and Shima, prior to their posting on the Yamato.

!! '''Kiyoshi Toyama'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Koji Yusa

A member of Yamato's tactical division. Rank: Corporal. From Saitama Prefecture. Responsible for deck work and fightercraft operations. An easygoing personality, has a habit of ending sentences with a "na-" sound. [The equivalent of "eh?"] Often paired with Iwata.
* GreaseMonkey: See Enomoto's entry.
* KilledOffForReal: During Dessler's surprise raid on the Yamato in episode 25.
* ThoseTwoGuys: And often gets the bad luck to be pulled for Seagull duty by Kodai at that.
* VerbalTic: "~na."

!! '''Shinpei Iwata'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Kouki Harasawa (Japanese), John Wesley Go (English)

A member of Yamato's tactical division. Rank: Space Sergeant 3rd Class. From Tokushima. Responsible for deck work and fightercraft operations. A subordinate of Enomoto who complains a lot but handles his work properly. Often paired with Toyama.
* GreaseMonkey: See Enomoto's entry.
* KilledOffForReal: Like Toyama, Iwata gets killed in the penultimate episode during Dessler's raid on the Yamato.
* {{Megane}}: One of several among the male crew.
* ServileSnarker: Never lets the opportunity to complain about the amount of maintenance work he has to pull.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Always seen around Enomoto.

!! '''Miki Saijo'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Satomi Moriya (Japanese), Dani Chambers (English)

CIC Officer in Yamato's CIC division. Rank: Space Sergeant, First Class. From Shimane Prefecture. Takes charge of the ship's sensors as a backup for Yuki Mori when she is absent. Works closely with Kitano.
* BridgeBunny: Is Yuki's stand-in for the third shift. If neither Yuki or Yuria is on duty, then you'll definitely see her on the Radar station's chair.
** SatelliteCharacter[=/=] LivingProp: Her only purpose so far is to make that there's ''someone'' manning Radar when Yuki or Yuria are unavailable.

!! '''Mikage Kiryu'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/ErikoNakamura

Technical division. Her rank is warrant officer. From Niigata. 18 years old. A young linguistics expert. Other than her mania for antique marine vessels, she is attracted to Norse mythology and the paintings of Henri Rousseau. Her father was a member of the space cavalry and her mother became a cultural anthropologist a young age, her field work taking her all over the world.
* AscendedExtra: Her most notable canon appearances before the ''Ark of the Stars'' movie are in episodes 20[[labelnote:note]]filling in for [[NumberTwo Sanada]] as he supervises the repairs on the third bridge[[/labelnote]], 22[[labelnote:note]]alongside [[HotScientist Niimi]] in the lab during Captain Okita's pre-warp RousingSpeech[[/labelnote]], and 24[[labelnote:note]]wearing a [[{{Fanservice}} swimsuit]] alongside [[HelloNurse Makoto]] and later talking with the third bridge crew[[/labelnote]].
* CrashIntoHello: Her first encounter with Sawamura was this.
* CunningLinguist: Is shown working on a translation program that would help Terrans, Gamilons, and Jirellians to communicate. In fact she's so fluent in the latter, despite it being a ''nearly-extinct language'', that she can understand it by ear, and read its rune-like alphabet via touch.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: Barring her skin color, she's apparently a dead ringer for Berger's long-dead fiance Melia.
* ShipTease: With Sawamura.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Could be considered this for first-time viewers of the ''Ark of the Stars'' movie despite already having appeared in the TV series as mentioned in AscendedExtra above. Though in all fairness, scenes involving her presence in the TV series pass by quite quickly and she only becomes more noticeable to those who've already seen the movie and are bothering to [[RewatchBonus rewatch]] the TV series.

!!Sho Sawamura
--> '''Voiced by:''' Yuuya Chikaki

Flight corps/pilot. From Ehime. His rank is Ensign, or 3rd-grade Space Lieutenant. The youngest member of the air corps along with Kobashi, who was killed in the Battle of the Rainbow Star Cluster. Bright and cheerful.
* AscendedExtra: Like Kiryu above, he gains main character status for the movie, although he [[RecurringExtra appears in some form]] in exactly half of the TV series' episodes, [[RewatchBonus starting as early as episode 3]].
* CatSmile
* LetsGetDangerous: Though essentially a part of the Yamato's RedShirtArmy, he's surprisingly competent in the few action scenes he plays a role in, including sinking an enemy carrier to avenge Kobashi.
* ShipTease: With Kiryu.

!!Yoshikazu Aihara
--> '''Voiced by:''' Masato Kokubun (Japanese), Aaron Roberts (English)

Operations section officer/communication chief. His rank is Ensign, or 3rd-grade Space Lieutenant. From Iwate. 22 years old. In charge of communication control on Yamato.

!!Jun Ichikawa
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/SakiFujita

Operation section officer/radio operator. Her rank is Specialist, 2nd class. From Hyogo. 20 years old. Acts as Aihara’s backup on the first bridge. Her freckles are characteristic of one with red hair, and she wears a looser ship’s uniform.

!!Hajime Saito
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/HirokiTochi

Member of the Space Cavalry Division, 7th Regiment. From Kagoshima Prefecture. 27 years old. His rank is Sergeant Major. A subordinate of Colonel Ichisa Kiryu, a courageous man rumored to be adept at hand-to-hand combat. A friend to Mikage Kiryu before enlisting, and acquainted with her family. He survived the annihilation of his garrison on the lunar surface, and when he returned to Earth he was assigned to the security forces in the Far East District underground city.


[[folder: UN Officials]]

!! '''Kotetsu Serizawa'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/TesshoGenda (Japanese), Doug Jackson (English)

United Nations Space Corps and Far East District Director of military. Rank: Space General. From Ibaraki prefecture. The central figure of the Izumo Plan, forerunner of the Yamato Plan. A military bureaucrat who assists Todo on the military adminstration side. He has strong political ambitions, and is unhappy with the popularity and respect garnered by Okita after the second battle of Mars.

[[spoiler:Despite the formal scuttling of the Izumo plan, Serizawa continues to support it in secret, to the point where he plants several supporters onboard the Yamato as its crew, all waiting for the right opportunity to take it over.]]
* AwesomeMcCoolname: The Ko in Kotetsu means tiger and Tetsu means iron. Also Kotetsu is the homonym of a Japanese word for ironclads.
* [[spoiler:ColonelKilgore: Orders Earth ships to fire on the Gamilan messengers first time Humans saw them.]]
* EvilGenius: Hinted to be the one who converted the Wave Motion Engine into a cannon. Not even Dessler made it possible.
* FromNobodyToNightmare[=/=]AscendedExtra: In a meta way: the original series had an unnamed officer with Serizawa's looks and position who was an ObstructiveBureaucrat and an ineffective enemy, but this one... Well, this one [[spoiler:caused the HopelessWar against the Gamilans]], nearly succeeded in repurposing the ''Yamato'''s mission in a colonization plan fated to fail, and is hinted having invented the WaveMotionGun.
* KarmaHoudini: Apparently gets away with everything he did.

!!The Great Gamillas Empire

[[folder: Gamillians]]

!! '''Herm Zoellik'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NorioWakamoto

Inspector General of the Great Gamilas Empire Central Command. The equivalent of 47 Earth years of age. General of the army, and second only to Dessler in his influence over the military administration. Descended from a noble family of pure lineage, an arrogant man who schemes to reestablish the old aristocracy.

[[spoiler:He engineers an attempt on Dessler's life, after which he uses the emperor's "death" as a pretense to put the Gamilas fleet under his control. Needless to say this fails, when Dessler reveals himself to be ''very'' much alive. He meets his end via a shot to the back at the hands of Goer.]]
* {{Expy}}: An ambitious, large, loud and boorish scion of the old aristocracy, who's at the same time both racist and classist, he's the one of "Fat Hermann" — Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering, though unlike him Goering firmly remained a loyal Hitler's follower and favorite.
* FantasticRacism: He makes no attempt to hide his contempt for any who do not share his cerulean complexion.
* GeneralRipper: The one time he faces the ''Yamato'' he puts his ships into such position to shoot and ram each other. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Goer, who had previously established himself as one, was appalled]].
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal[=/=]KilledMidSentence: And by ''Goer'', of all people. Goer himself seems to be surprised that he was able to do it.]]
* LargeHam: ''Colossal'' ham would be more like it - of course, one could expect nothing less from a villain voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto.
* SmugSnake: In spades.
* [[spoiler:TheStarscream: Plots a takeover scheme starting with offing Dessler. Too bad Dessler is far too smart to fall for something like it.]]

!! '''Gul Deitz'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Katsunosuke Hori

Supreme commander of the Great Gamilas Empire Astro fleet. The equivalent of 55 Earth years of age. Came from a family of officers and bodyguards from generation to generation, an experienced Admiral who oversees all elements of the Gamilas space fleet except the orbital planetary defense fleet.

Late into the series he finds himself framed by Gimleh for secretly formenting dissent among the general staff. Melda frees him from his confinement, after which he finds himself forced by circumstance to form a resistance movement against the very government he had once served.
* BadassMoustache: The owner of an impressive one, at that. In a bit of a subversion however, Deitz is actually a ''moderate'' rather than a warmonger.
* CaptainErsatz: of Carl Donitz.
* LaResistance: Forced to become the figurehead of Anti-Dessler sentiments, after he is freed from prison.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's noticebly the most moderate of Dessler's subordinates. This remains unchanged even in the wake of the chaos surrounding the Yamato's arrival in the Gamilon's home system, where he allows the ship access to Iscandar as thanks.

!! '''Heydom Gimleh'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Junpei Morita

Leader of the Great Gamilas Empire Imperial guard. The equivalent of 39 Earth years of age. Top commander of the Imperial guard, the enforcement hand of the empire responsible for maintaining public order. Also leads the secret police, which thoroughly monitors rebel elements and ruthlessly cracks down on them. The guard has its own independent space fleet that watches for every opportunity to supplant the regular military.
* AmbitionIsEvil: he wants more power, and won't stop before anything to get it.
* BloodKnight: The more carnage the better, so the unruly proles would know their place.
* {{Expy}}: Of SS Commander Heinrich Himmler and Governor Reinhard Heydrich , being the similarly inexplicably and unnecessarily cruel StateSec head, and a fan of [[DisproportionateRetribution extremely brutal repression]].
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: When his ship was destroyed during Yamato's attack on Gamilas in ep. 23, he just calmly wondered, [[ASpotOfTea teacup in hand]]: "So, that's what death is?"]]
* KnightTemplar
* SmugSnake

!! '''[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Gamilon General Gremto Goer]]'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MasashiHirose, Minoru Inaba (''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'')

A Major-General in the Milky Way Galaxy campaign for the Great Gamilas Empire.

He is the equivalent of 47 years old on Earth. He oversees the Gamilas Army’s operations toward the Milky Way, and does not accept failure from his subordinates. It is said that he is [[{{Understatement}} inept as a military officer]].
* AceCustom: All of his ships have a distinct camouflage.
* DirtyCoward, [[RunningGag and useless boob]].
* TheDragon: Was supposed to be this to Zoellik (and was described as one of his lackey). Then Zoellik revealed himself as a worse GeneralRipper than him and as [[spoiler: TheStarscream]], and Goer [[spoiler: shot him in the back for treason]].
** He later takes the role for Dessler, and surprisingly does a good job.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: There are things even he would never do, like forcing his ships in a situation where they'd risk shooting and ramming each other (and was appalled when Zoellik did it) or [[spoiler: betraying Deslar]]. Being caught doing the latter in his presence is a good way to [[KilledMidSentence being interrupted during a speech by a gunshot]] InTheBack.
* EvilIsPetty: Truly.
* FantasticRacism: If you are not of blue skin, Goer ain't gonna like you.
* GeneralRipper: His answer to have a ship between he and the ''Yamato'' not moving and telling him there's the daughter of the ''commander in chief'' on the Human ship is to destroy said ship, write her off as destroyed by the ''Yamato'' and then attack the ''Yamato'' too.
** That said, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he'd never fire on ship obeying his orders nor risk them shooting and ramming each other]].
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
** [[spoiler: [[SparedByAdaptation Death Postponed by Adaptation]]: In the original series he dies at the Battle of the Rainbow Cluster, as he's on Domel's flagship command module when he launches his SuicideAttack on the ''Yamato''. Here he doesn't take part to that battle, and is only killed in episode 25, when Wolf Frakken comes to arrest him and he resists]].
* LargeHam: Neck and neck with Zoellik for the largest ham in Garmillas's fleet.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He seems just an idiot and a glory hound. Then in episode 25 he [[spoiler: gets the jump on the ''Yamato'', and would have destroyed her then and there had it been his goal instead of sending her into Dessler's ambush]], and not even [[spoiler: getting counterambushed and killed by Wolf Frakken]] prevented him from completing his objective.
* OnlySaneMan: Carried from his characterization in the original series: be they Domel or Zoellik, he is quick to note when their plans are crazy or stupid. Where Domel gets a pass by bordering on CrazyAwesome (and here losing his GeneralRipper tracts), Zoellik does not.
* PetTheDog: Despite being a generally unlikable JerkAss brown-noser, his loyalty to Dessler is genuine.
* PyrrhicVictory: His last battle was one: his goal was to [[spoiler:push the ''Yamato'' into Dessler's ambush]], and he did it with time to spare on [[spoiler: Wolf Frakken showing up and killing him]].
* UndyingLoyalty: To Dessler. Basically his only redeeming quality.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Definitely has an inflated sense of self-worth, especially when you realize just how little he's actually accomplished in-series.

!! '''Melda Deitz'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShizukaIto (Japanese), Katelyn Barr (English)

Woman pilot of the Great Gamilas Empire Milky Way area 707th military air wing. Her rank is second lieutenant. She is equivalent of 19 years of age on Earth. Her father is Admiral Gal Deitz, supreme commander of the imperial spacefleet. Born to a military man's proud family line, she values honor above all. As a pilot with the skill of an ace, she flies the red Tsvuelke, which is her cherished machine.

She brokers a ceasefire between the Yamato and her ship, which had been trapped in the galactic Sargasso. When her ship was ostensibly destroyed by Goer, she remains on the Yamato, until she is finally released.

When her father and many of his subordinates are imprisoned for assumed sedition, she joins with some of his subordinates to free him. After this, she stays on the Yamato as a liason, while her father leaves to liberate other prison planets.
* AcePilot: One of the best Gamilon fighters shown on-screen.
* AceCustom: Her customized red-trimmed fighter of course.
* ActionGirl: More than capable of defending herself, as shown when Akira unceremoniously attacks her when the Yamato was stranded in the galactic sargasso.
* AscendedExtra: A [[GenderFlip genderflipped]] version of the unnamed ''male'' Gamilon pilot captured during the original series.
* BlueSkinnedSpaceBabe: Of course.
* FieryRedhead: Averted. Melda is calm and very reasonable, even when she was ostensibly held hostage.
* TheRival: Akira has certainly pegged her as such. [[spoiler:When she returns to be the liason to Yamato, it starts to overlap with OddFriendship, to the extent of LesYay.]]

!!Fomto Berger
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunichiSuwabe

Garmillas Imperial Army officer. Former staff officer, 6th Armored Space Division. Equivalent of 27 Earth years old. His rank is Lieutenant Commander. He survived the Battle of the Rainbow Star Cluster with his carrier Lambea, refused a cease-fire order from his nation, and vowed revenge on Yamato. In his past, his former lover died before his eyes when he left for a new post.
* AscendedExtra: One of the field officers that accompanied Domel, he gets a whole lot of focus in the ''Ark of the Stars'' movie, and his memories become the key to unlocking the mystery that the group is trapped in.
* DeathSeeker: He's tired of the constant war and death he's seen in his life, and has been waiting for a long time to be reunited with Melia.
* AmicableExes: Despite their relationship ending long ago, he still seems to get along fine with Neredia.
* ScarsAreForever: He has a huge scar that runs from his left cheek to chin, which he got at the same time his fiancee died.

She received exceptional promotion for a woman in recognition of her distinguished service in the “Battle of Chitabere.” She had a relationship with Berger at the time.

!!Melia Rikke
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ErikoNakamura

Sister of Neredia, former lover of Berger. After she enlisted in the army, her first assigned workplace was raided by Gatlantis, and she was swallowed in flames in front of Berger. Other than the color of her skin, she closely resembles Mikage Kiryu.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: She's basically just a blue-skinned Mikage.
* TheLostLenore: For Berger.

!!Krim Melhe
-->'''Voiced by:''' Shinnosuke Tachibana

A subordinate of Berger and a survivor of the Battle of the Rainbow Star Cluster. Equivalent of 23 Earth years old. His rank is Second Lieutenant. Participated in the second attack on Yamato with Berger as part of Lambea‘s Snuka corps. He has a nervous disposition.
* {{Foil}}: For Sawamura. Both are young fighter pilots representing their sides, but while Sawamura is able to make light of their situation, Krim just starts losing patience and eventually snaps. He gets better by the end though.

An old soldier of Garmillas, and a comrade of Haidern, who was killed in the Battle of the Rainbow Star Cluster. Equivalent of 64 Earth years old. His rank is captain. He is well aware of the past relationship between Berger and Neredia.

An influential person in terms of domestic politics, responsible for the suppression of insurgents seized in cooperation with Gomura. She is respected and feared by high officials of the army who are afraid to be branded by her as traitors. She is infatuated with Dessler.
* BigNo: When Dessler took off in his spacecraft without her.

* PointyEars: Due to being a Jirellian.

!! '''Mirenel Linke'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Akemi Okamura (Japanese), Creator/LindsaySeidel (English)

Gamilas Central Intelligence Special Officer. The equivalent of 18 Earth years of age. Rank: Lieutenant. Born on the Planet Jirel. An intelligence officer who works directly for Celestella, and a psychic. The two of them are also the last survivors of Jirel. By using the Akerius ruins hyperspace network at Balun base, she materializes her mind onboard Yamato, where she performs information gathering and sabotage [in Episode 14].
* BlueSkinnedSpaceBabe: Though, she disguises herself as pink skinned when exploring the Yamato.
* CaptainErsatz: Also partly based on Dessler's daughter Jura from "The Eternal Story of Jura".
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Her mind is trapped inside the Yamato's Wave Motion Engine and painfully annihilated. Her physical body spasms in pain and dies too.
* KilledOffForReal: Care of the Yamato's Wave Motion core at that.
* MindRape: One that made Kodai [[NiceJobFixingItVillain rekindle his hate for Gamilas]].
* PointyEars: As a Jirellian.
* PsychicPowers: Specifically astral projection.
* SpaceElves: Part of the Jirellian package.

!!Lerelai Leru

When her home planet Jirel was destroyed, she made a pilgrimage to Shambleau, an ancient Akerian ruin and a sacred place for Jirellians trying to avoid extinction.

[[folder: Zaltians]]
!! '''Vuelke Shulz'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Yu Shimaka (Japanese), Mark Stoddard (English)
The commander of the Pluto advance base, ranked as Colonel in the Empire's space forces. He was the commander of a space brigade that consists mostly of second-class citizens, most of whom come from the planet Zalts, which had been conquered by Gamilas. Despite being from a conquered world, Shultz is loyal to Dessler's regime, though some of this is due in part to the fact that, by performing well, he and his men guarantee the possibility of a better life for their families.

As he was only able to start a family very late in his life, he dotes on his only daughter, Hilde.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: When the ''Yamato'' is breaking through the ambush planned by Dessler himself in episode 8, he replies by ''charging at her in the corona of a star, trying to destroy her either with gunfire, by ramming her or pushing her into a flare''. And when the ''Yamato'' [[CrazyAwesome breaks through the flare with a shot of the wave motion gun]] and his ship is about to be hit, he [[FaceDeathWithDignity calmly accepted the inevitable]].
* PetTheDog: After his death, Dessler promotes him and his men two ranks (incidentally putting Shultz ''above'' his direct superior who had tried to blame him for the ''Yamato'''s survival) and give them not what they joined the fleet for, 1st-class citizenship for their families, but something ''better'', honorary citizenship for their families (putting them ''above'' pureblooded Gamilans).
* PunchClockVillain: As a soldier his goal is to force Earth into surrender (and demands them so when engaging Okita's fleet in the first episode), and is starting to believe that HumansAreCrazy because for their refusal. The only reason he even counts as a villain is that his means to force Earth's surrender is [[ColonyDrop asteroid bombing]]...
* TookALevelInBadass: His counterpart in the original series was a joke, who was a threat to the ''Yamato'' only because he had a powerful prototype weapon to use. This one nearly killed the ''Yamato'' by improvising with a device made to deviate asteroids to [[ColonyDrop bomb Earth]], and later has the DyingMomentOfAwesome detailed above.
* VillainousValor: See DyingMomentOfAwesome.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Initially the ''Yamato'' crew had no problems dealing with the Gamilas, only on how to use the wave motion engine and gun. Then they move on his base, and his first attack almost cripples the ''Yamato'' without them having any idea on what hit them.

!! '''Nolan'''
A 2nd-class Gamilas citizen who joined a commando team to board the ''Yamato'' and capture Yurisha. Sings the Gamilas anthem before going to the battlefield.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Ejects Yuki to safety while rigging Dessler's Fortress to detonate.]]
* PunchClockVillain
* SoleSurvivor: Of the commando squad.
* TraumaCongaLine
* VillainousValor: Sings the Gamilas anthem nervously which then cheer the entire army up.

!! '''Hilde Shulz'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Ayano Miura (Japanese), Creator/AlisonViktorin (English)
As a girl of Planet Zalts, she is regarded as a 2nd-class Gamilas citizen. She is the daughter of Pluto base commander Vuelke Shulz and is the equivalent of 13 years old on Earth. She loves her father and awaits his return with her mother Raiza in the Imperial capital Baleras. Since she is the daughter of an older man, her father Vuelke dotes on her. She has a cat-like pet from Zalts called a "Krall" which is her best friend.

She works as a maid for Celestela starting from Episode 21.
* DaddysGirl: Definitely loves her dad.
* MoralityChain: For Shulz and possibly for Celestela.

[[folder: Iscandarians]]
!! '''Yurisha Iscandar'''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HoukoKuwashima (Japanese), Mallorie Rodak (English)

The youngest sister of Starsha and Sasha, she was sent ahead to Earth with the technological plans that would give Humanity the chance to fight back against the Gamilas Empire. Her wherabouts after providing these plans are unknown though, as she as of the start of the series has been missing for a year.

[[spoiler:In truth, she's actually held in suspended animation inside the Navigation core of the Yamato, where her memories are being scanned for the path to Iscandar. This is because, due to a terror attack, she's been in a coma for at least a year. However, she hasn't been idle since then, as she can project her consciousness, appearing as the rumored "ghost" of the ship. When she finds out about Yuria's sensitivity to spirits, she proceeds to possess the girl, and uses her body to explore the ship. Whenever she is in control of Yuria's body, she takes off Yuria's trademarked hair ties.]]
* [[spoiler:BewareOfTheNiceOnes: Messes with Alter, bodyjacks Yuria and annihilates Mirenel. The most psychologically deadly person in the entire cast.]]
* [[spoiler:BodySurf]]
* CharacterTic: A good clue that it's Yurisha and not Yuki or Yuria, is that she likes to twirl hair hair around her index finger.
* CloudCuckooLander: There's something ''off'' at times with Yurisha, which is more apparent when she's conscious again and interacting with the rest of Yamato's crew.
* CreepyMonotone: Not really creepy, but even when finally awake and walking around in the flesh, Yurisha speaks in a weird, almost dreamy tone of voice.
* MythologyGag: To Sasha in the semi-official ''Star Blazers'' webcomic ''Rebirth''.
* NightmareFetishist: Enjoys being chased by BigCreepyCrawlies, also hinted to be attracted to [[spoiler:Dessler]].
* TheGhost: It's established that she brought the plans for the Wave Motion Engine to Earth a year before the series began, but she's not seen in the first few episodes. Her presence is first truly seen in Episode 14, and her body is seen in Episode 17. [[spoiler: In Episode 20, she gets out of her sealed capsule and starts walking around.]]
* PurpleEyes: Another thing to differentiate her from Yuki, who has brown eyes instead.
* TheTease[=/=]ShipperOnDeck: To Yuria and Hoshina and, later on, Kodai and Yuki.
-->'''Yurisha''' (to Kodai): I love Yuki. Don't you love Yuki too?
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Some translators, including the writers for the ''Star Blazers 2199'' subbed release, suggest spelling her name "Ulyssia", because of the similarity to the Japanese pronunciation of "[[Literature/TheOdyssey Ulysses]]". However, the official website settled on a ''third'' romanization of her name: Eureshya.
* [[spoiler:SpaceshipGirl: Lives in the navigation computer of ''Yamato'' for a while, as Sasha did in ''Rebirth''.]]
