Farewell, Distant Memories (Japanese: さらば、遠き日) is the 26th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.

SynopsisEdit

Ansbach misses; Paul von Oberstein shields Reinhard von Lohengramm with his body while Siegfried Kircheis grabs the weapon, but is killed in the process. Reinhard is devastated by his friend's death and is unable to make any decisions for a couple of weeks. His admirals returns to Odin to arrest Klaus von Lichtenlade for his alleged murder attempt on Reinhard and to secure the Imperial Seal to establish Reinhard's authority. Reinhard finally recovers and speaks to Annerose von Grünewald, who decides to retire to a small cottage; Reinhard feels left alone. Meanwhile, in Fezzan, Adrian Rubinsky plans to keep a closer eye on Yang Wen-li and Reinhard; he dispatches Boris Konev, an old acquaintance of Yang, to work in Fezzan's High Commission in the Alliance, and sends Nicholas Boltik as Fezzan's ambassador to Odin, replacing him with Rupert Kesserling. Upon his return to Odin, Reinhard is appointed as Prime Minister while serving concurrently as the Supreme Commander of the Imperial Forces, effectively becoming the de facto ruler of the Empire. Kircheis is posthumously promoted to the rank of Fleet Admiral and appointed as a member of the Imperial High Command.

Memorable quotesEdit

"Lord Reinhard... please... win the universe.... Tell Lady Annerose... that Sieg has kept his promise from the past...."

Siegfried Kircheis, to Reinhard von Lohengramm, in his dying moments

"Your Excellency, I am not forsaking you. You must not torture yourself like this. Nor leave your responsibilities to me. More importantly, rather than dwelling on the past, you must confront the future. Otherwise, this is as far as you can get."

Paul von Oberstein, to Reinhard von Lohengramm

"Shadows must accompany their light. But if the light dims, don't the shadows too?"

Paul von Oberstein

"And then, I had a nasty thought. What good is democracy if it gives power to a man like that? It kept coming back to me. Rudolf, who founded the Galactic Empire, and that bunch in the National Salvation Military Council, were both convinced that only they could save the day. And they continued to think so. It is strangely paradoxical, but what made Rudolf create an atrocious, despotic government was his sense of duty to the entire human race."

Yang Wen-li, to Julian Mintz, comparing Job Trunicht with Rudolf von Goldenbaum and the National Salvation Military Council
