Star Fleet is a cult classic Japanese animated television show that was translated in English in the 1980s. This science fiction series was produced by Toei Animation and was aired in Japan under the title "X-Bomber". The show was acquired by Discotek Media, who brought it to US shores in a four-disc Blu-ray set with a 3-disc special edition soundtrack in June 2021.

The storyline of Star Fleet is quite straightforward. In the year 2999, humans have colonized many planets across the galaxy. However, they have also made enemies in the form of the Imperial Alliance, a group of aliens led by the evil Commander Makara. To defeat the Imperial Alliance, a group of humans and robots need to come together and form the Star Fleet. They have to protect Earth and other planets from the Imperial Alliance's terror attacks.

The leader of the Star Fleet is Captain Halley, who is accompanied by his subordinates Hercules and Barry. They are aided in their missions by a team of heroic robots, including the mighty robot X-Bomber, known as Dai-X. Dai-X is formed by three smaller robots, each operated by a member of the Star Fleet team.

The main villain of the show is Commander Makara, who is a conniving and evil alien being. She has an army of alien ships that she uses to launch attacks on planets, including Earth. She is aided by her second-in-command, Commander Gampar, who is equally ruthless and cunning.

Denise Bryer is one of the main voice actors of the show, providing the English voiceover for most of the female characters. She is the voice of the beautiful and intelligent Princess Lamia, who is a major character in the show. Princess Lamia is the daughter of the Supreme Commander of the Galactic Patrol and is a member of the Star Fleet. She pilots one of the ships and works hard to defeat the Imperial Alliance.

The show has a fun and engaging storyline, bringing with it an amusing collection of characters who appeal to children and adults alike. The voice acting is great, and the dialogue is playful and entertaining. The animation quality, though not on par with current standards, was quite good for its time and is still quite enjoyable to watch.

One of the highlights of this series is the incredible and memorable soundtrack that accompanies it. Composed by the Japanese band Manta, the music is a great mix of disco, rock, and synthesizer sounds. The opening theme song, known as "Star Fleet", is a catchy, upbeat tune that sets the tone for the show perfectly. The soundtrack even won a prestigious Japanese music award, which is a testament to its quality and popularity.

In conclusion, Star Fleet is an entertaining and exciting show that will delight fans of science-fiction, anime, and adventure. Its charming cast, easy-to-follow storyline, and enjoyable soundtrack make it a great watch for all ages. The series has a nostalgic charm that will bring back fond memories for those who grew up watching it, and for new audiences, it remains an enjoyable and captivating experience. The Discotek Media release is a wonderful chance to revisit a cult classic that shouldn't be missed.
