Thats interesting - the normally comprehensive Dorama guide to Japanese TV series by Jonathan Clements doesn't appear to have an entry for it, presumably because its actually a movie:
"The power of bakers, the power of artists; even the power of witches! It must be a power given by God... sometimes we suffer for it."- Ursula, Kikis Delivery Service.

This is a movie derived from the TV series San Ku Kai - and yes, it does appear to share a lot of traits with Star Fleet. In fact, when you look at anime in general, sailing ships converted for space travel feature quite a lot. I actually remember Message from Space from somewhere when I was very, very young - possibly from an old video. Images from the show are here:'s been discussed around here on occasion, but have a search on the Net (there are also some links under the miscellaneous links section of the site but I haven't checked them for a while).
