It's not the Shadows that make it sound like a Yamato ripoff, it's the plot.

In the original series of Space Cruiser Yamato, the Earth has been made
highly radioactive by the [Gamelons, IIRC]. Queen Starsha from the planet
Iscandar sends plans for a wave-motion drive so that humanity can send a
ship the 148,000 light years to retrieve a device to cleans the Earth. They
have exactly one year in which to do it.

Apart from the fact that [Crusader] gives them five years and it isn't
radiation, there's not much difference...
