BackgroundEdit

Gamilas(also spelled Garmillas) is a planet in the Large Magelanic Cloud and the Home world of sentient species of the same name (Gamilons in Star Blazers). The world is consisted of a thin crust an a hallow mantle that is filled with cave-like catacombs. Due to the massive underground supervolcanic system by nature of this planet, sulfuric build up is common, and equally deadly. Highly corrosive rain often occur underneath the ground along with the underground oceans of sulfuric acid. Along with the unpredictable volcano eruption, the planet is under constant threat of nature; which forces most native population off world to find a less hostile world. The only other natural satellite is the planet Iscandar, where they share a binary orbit. Upon the attempt to capture the Yamato, Dessler trapped the ship within one of the planet's sinkholes in an attempt to destroy the Earth ship by the mixture of his own firepower and the forces of nature. In defense and to cause a disarray, the Yamato fired its Wave Motion gun at a pocket of highly unstable volcanic network. As a result, eruptions forced Dessler to abort the attack and the destruction of his station allow the crew of the Yamato to presume that he is dead. The eruption of the volcanic network forced the world to be unstable.A few years later, the planet is destroyed by the Dark Nebula Empire. Iscandar, sharing is orbit, was flung to away from the system from a sudden loss of gravitational pull. As a result of the destruction of his homeworld, Dessler then goes out to find a new home for his people.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199Edit

In the remake series, Gamilas serves as the jewel capital of an interstellar empire that has emerged as a dominant superpower throughout the galaxy (compared the original series, which appears to be a dying world). Instead of a toxic, unforgivable world like the original, the remake version of Gamilas is actually a seemingly prosperous world consisting of gleaming cities within the planet's large canyons. Its capital is the imperial city of Baleras, which contains Abelt Dessler's palace.

TriviaEdit

  • While the original series depicts Gamilas as a dying world full of toxic radiation and acid seas, the remake version tends to be more reminiscient of a planet serving as the heart of an empire at the greatst extent of its power and dominance over the Lare Magelanic Cloud, the Small Magelanic Cloud, and possibly the Milky Way. the remake version also holds a seemingly totalitarian society governed under a military regime that holds fascist ideals (primarily that of the ideals of Nazi Germany). Even its cruel treatment towards the other alien races can be considered as similar to the Nazi nortion of the Aryan "master race".
  • In the 2012 remake, Gamilas may also share similar ties with the Helghast Empire from Guerilla Games's Killzone series: both share the same solar system with another habitable world, both express tendencies of commiting horrid atrocities, both enforce Fascist policies of territorial expansion and militarism, and each had their own charismatic leader (Scolar Visari, dictator of the Helghast Empire, and Abelt Dessler, ruler of the Gamilas Empire).
  • The 2199 series also clarifies an unanswered question from the original 1974 series concerning the Jupiter and Pluto based Gamilas soldiers who had Caucasian skin tone instead of blue. Most notably Shultz and Ganz. They were members of a subject race from the planet Zaltz.
