Warrior/pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet.
The "Star Trek" alien species the Nausicaans, who were first mentioned in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Samaritan Snare (1989) and first appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Tapestry (1993), were named after the film.
An insect did that?
Kushana: Yes, and whatever lucky man becomes my husband shall see far worse than that.
During the invasion of The Valley of the Wind one of the large carrier planes is seen moving backwards.
As the credits roll we see life returning to normal in the valley: Kushana, Kurotowa and the Tolmekian fleet leave peacefully, after Nausicaä has unheard words for Kushana. The denizens of the Valley of the Wind replant trees in the burned-down forest. Lord Yupa and Asbel ride Yupa's beasts to the Toxic Jungle and explore it. When the text "The End" appears on screen we see Nausicaa's discarded helmet in the forest, alongside a green, non-Toxic Jungle sapling.
