Ensign Yoshikazu Aihara (相原義一 Aihara Yoshikazu/Giichi?)

chief communications officer, Aihara becomes homesick during the journey to Iscandar after discovering his father on Earth was dying; in his madness he steals a spacesuit and attempts to float home before being rescued by his comrades. A Gamilan relay satellite had been the cause of the stressful transmissions reaching the Yamato, and Aihara destroyed the satellite.


  • In Japanese, the kanji for his given name can be read in two ways; the reading "Yoshikazu" is used in episode 10 of the first season, but (owing to an error) he gives his name as "Giichi" in the third season.
  • Aihara's favorite song is Kitakami Yakyoku (北上夜曲).
