- This article describes the advanced EDF warship Andromeda as depicted in Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato and Space Battleship Yamato 2. For its counterpart in Space Battleship Yamato 2202, see Andromeda (2199).
Andromeda is the Flagship of the Earth Defense Fleet in the second season , it has at least twice the firepower of the Yamato, with two wave motion guns, four shock cannon turrets and it is commanded by Ryu Hijikata. It is first seen in 2201as Hijikata refuses to give way to Yamato as his fleet is wounded in a Comet Empire attack. The two ships cross paths again as the Andromeda tries to stop Yamato deserting Earth but later lets them escape. It is destroyed in the Battle of Saturn.
Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit
This battleship is the newest and the most powerful ship in the Earth Defense Fleet during Comet Empire-Earth War and acts as the flagship of EDF. Its main cannons are larger than the Yamato's and has a range equals to the Yamato's Wave Motion Gun. Many of its controls, including fire-control, navigation and damage-control are automated, therefore its crew number is only 95, lower than Yamato's 114.

- Although the service phase of this class was short, it spawned a successor several yeras later.
