I’m looking for a 90's -00's anime I saw on TV on a channel called Spacetoon about 17 years ago. Here is what I remember from it:
It’s set in space and centers around the crew of a spaceship that is always on the run from the bad guys. The majority of crew are women, and the main character is a woman. In one episode they buy a turret from a junk dealer. The turret looks like its from a ww2 battleship and attach it to the button of the spaceship, which is strange since the ship has all kinds of laser weapons.
One of the bad guys is a old bald man with a very long white beard. After failing his superiors one time too many he is punished by being imprisoned and having hundreds of red tubes stuck into his body. In a later episode we learn that he is being used as a power source for the bad guys new superweapon that can teleport bombs into enemy ships and instantly destroy them from within. There is a lot of build up to this, but the superweapon is destroyed the first episode it's used.
