Ext. Space. Music starts and scenes and sounds of the final battle from AC 195 start to move across the screen, Virgos firing at space Leos against the background of the moon; Deathscythe Hell eviscerating Virgo IIs, Heavyarms, Sandrock, and Altron destroying more Virgos as they come into range of their respective weapon systems. The final minutes of Libra's fall to Earth, Heero's destruction of the final pieces, views of the space junk floating in the atmosphere over a blue Earth, and then a Leo's head burning up on reentry, and finally, a group of farmers cutting wheat in a field, provide the background images for the narration.
Narrator: The year, After Colony year 195. This year, a group of colony citizens hostile towards the Alliance, sent young men to Earth on five Gundams. The project name was Operation Meteor. At the end of an intricate battle, the sole revolutionist leader, Treize Khushrenada, took on the task of being the one to close the curtain on an era and died in battle. That gave way to the birth of the Earth Sphere Unified Nation. After Colony 196. Battle weapons no longer exist in the Earth Sphere. However, as long as mankind exists, there will always be battles. After Colony year 195. The final war between the Earth and the Space Colonies had ended eliminating boundaries between nations. The Colonies and Earth choose to coexist thus giving rise to the Earth Sphere Unified Nation and the hope for everlasting peace. And now, the year After Colony 196. No military weapons remain in the Earth Sphere. However, as long as mankind exists, there will always be battles. After Colony year 195. The last war between the Colonist faction, White-Fang and the World Nation Forces of Earth ended and the structure of the opposition disappeared. The Colonies and Earth chose the path to coexistence and in hope of permanent peace, the United Earth Nation was created. After Colony year 196. At present, no arms or weapons exist in the Earth districts. But, as long as humans exist, there will always be war.
Ext. Space. View of a Preventer spacecraft on patrol, nearing a piece of metal floating in space.
Sally: This is Water. I’ve confirmed our target. I’ve locked on. This is "Water." I’ve confirmed our target. I’ve locked on. This is "Water." Target confirmed. Proceeding with recovery.
Switch to interior view of Sally Po, dressed in a space suit, apparently the only person on the craft. She is operating the diagnostic software.
Sally: Neo-Titanium? How in the world did this get here, I wonder? Neo-Titanium? How did this get here? Neo-Titanium? When did they get this?
Ext. Space. Resource satellite. Now being set up for use as a garbage disposal block to be sent into the sun and destroyed. Switch to an interior view of the of the satellite, and four large coffin-like boxes, each containing one of the Gundams, and Duo and Quatre in spacesuits, hovering in the microgravity above their respective mobile suits.
Duo: So, as long as this peace continues, there’s no need for Gundams. As long as peace continues, there’s no need for Gundams. As long there's peace, we don't need the Gundams...
Quatre: It’s tough parting with them. It’s tough parting with them. It's sad we have to part.
Duo: No, it’s okay. Well, let’s hurry up and send it into the sun with this disposal block. No, it’s okay. Let's hurry and send them into the sun with this disposal block. No. That's it. Let's blast them and this scrap satellite to the sun.
Quatre: Right. Right. Right.
Return to exterior view of the satellite, with Duo and Quatre in a control room, presumably from another satellite or ship in the area. Quatre presses the button that starts the engines on the satellite, and it begins moving towards the sun.
Quatre: I'm going to miss you, Sandrock. Good-bye, my Sandrock. Farewell, my Sandrock.
Duo: See ya later, ol' buddy. So, Wufei didn’t bring his after all. See ya later, old pal. Wufei didn’t bring his after all. See ya, pal! I knew Wufei wouldn't bring his.
Quatre: No, he didn’t. Heero and Trowa sent their Gundams to me right away. No, he didn’t. Heero and Trowa sent their Gundams to me right away. Yeah. But Heero and Trowa sent theirs right away.
Duo: Well, I wonder how everyone’s doing. I wonder how everyone’s doing. I wonder what they're doing.

Int. Natural resources satellite MO-II. In a large room decorated for Christmas with three decorated trees and hanging lights, filled with people in suits and formalwear.
Narrator: At the natural resources satellite MO-II, a ceremony was being held to mark the first anniversary to the end of the war. At the natural resources satellite MO-2, a ceremony was being held to make the first anniversary of the war’s end. On the last battleground, resource satellite MO-2, the first anniversary ceremony of the end of war was taking place.
Pan down one of the decorated trees in the room to Lady Une and Lucrezia Noin, both dressed in civilian clothing, standing at its base.
Lady Une: One year ago, people did not have the peace of mind to enjoy Christmas. Things have sure changed. One year ago, people didn't have the peace of mind to enjoy Christmas. Things have sure changed. A year ago, humans didn't have the ability to enjoy Christmas. How they've changed.
Noin: Hmmm…    
Scene switches to a podium in the same room, and the ESUN President, currently delivering the anniversary speech.
President: We are here to remember the many lives that were lost and sacrificed as a result of a foolish war. However, those soldiers' lives were not lost in vain. And, that is because those brave souls have taught us valuable lessons and left us a legacy to reflect on for the future. And then finally, we have been able to attain peace. We are here to remember the many lives lost as a result of a foolish war. However, those lives were not lost in vain. That’s because the many departed souls left us with valuable lessons and tools for reflection. So finally we’ve been able to attain peace. Many lives were lost because of the foolish act called war. But surely their deaths were not in vain. The reason is that their lives have given us much to reflect on and learn from. And at last we have gained peace. The many lives of...
Une and Noin turn and leave the main ceremony room, and the sounds of the President's speech follow them into the hallway.
Noin: The President doesn’t get it. It is a little more difficult to maintain the peace than it is to attain it. The President doesn't get it. It's harder to maintain peace than it is to attain it. The President doesn't understand. It's more difficult to sustain peace than to gain it.
President: [in background] Those many precious lives have become the foundation of what we have today.    
Lady Une: Oh, he understands it. Otherwise, the government wouldn’t be financially supporting us Preventers. He’s pretty smart for a person elected democratically. He understands that. Otherwise, the government wouldn’t financially back us Preventers. He’s pretty smart for a person elected democratically. He knows. Or he wouldn't have given the "Preventers" a budget. He's quite competent, considering he was democratically elected.
President: [in background] So , we've all learned from the lessons of the past, and we can look forward to a future that will benefit us now, where future generations to pursue the path to peace. Thank you all for coming here today…    
Noin: Hm.   [coughs softly]
Ext. Preventer spacecraft. Followed by an interior view showing Noin on a communications monitor, and Sally Po, dressed in a Preventers uniform, addressing the monitor.
Sally: Sure you don't need to be at the ceremony? Sure you can miss the rest of the ceremony? Are you sure you don't have to be at the ceremony?
Noin: The Preventers only put out fires. These ceremonies don’t suit us. What's wrong? Preventers only put out fires. These ceremonies don’t suit us. So? The Preventers are only firefighters. We're out of place there. And?
Sally: There’s a possibility that the Neo-Titanium is from the thirteenth constellation. There's a possibility that the Neo-Titanium is from the thirteenth constellation. There's a high possibility that the Neo-Titanium is the 13th star sign.
Noin: By that, you mean a new mobile suit model, right? You mean it’s a new mobile suit model? A new type of Mobile Suit...
Sally: I’m using a number of sources to quickly determine where it’s from. We’ve gotta put out this fire while it’s still small. I’m using various sources to determine where it’s from. We’ve gotta put out this fire while it’s still small. We're investigating all areas to pinpoint its origin. We must stop it while it's just a flame.
Noin: However, this is not going to be as easy as our last few missions were. This isn’t going to be quite as simple as our last few missions. But this time I think it's going to be the biggest fire yet.
Sally: Yeah, you're right. I agree. Agreed.
Ext. Colony X18999. Followed by views of the interior of the colony, showing many buildings in various stages of construction.
Man 1: As you’re aware, it’s been only seven years since our colony, L3-X18999 was completed. As you’re aware, it’s been only seven years since Colony, L3-X18999 was completed. As you know, our Colony, L-3 X18999, was only completed 7 years ago.
Int. Conference room with four colony delegates and Relena Darlian seated at a large table with a vidscreen showing the ESUN's President delivering his speech in the background.
Man 1: We’ve invited people from Earth to come live here, but our unstable economy is preventing the population from growing. We’ve invited people from Earth to come live here, but our unstable economy is preventing the population from growing. We're trying to get immigrants from Earth but our unstable economy is preventing us from increasing our population.
Relena: Hmm. The problem's whether the citizens understand that they are all members of the Earth Sphere Unified Nation. With the view that it's okay as long as their own colony is doing fine, one can not expect a stable lifestyle. The problem is whether the citizens understand that they’re members of the Earth Sphere Unified Nation. One can’t expect a stable lifestyle if one’s own colony alone is prospering. The problem may be that your citizens need to be aware that they are part of the United Earth Nation. Security will not come from a viewpoint that thinks only of this Colony.
Man 1: But we have been told that many citizens here have been hoping for a strong leader to rise up and guide them. Someone like yourself, Vice Foreign Minister Darlian. But we’ve been told that many citizens here hope for a strong leader to rise up and guide them. Someone like yourself, Vice Foreign Minister Darlian. But the citizens want a strong leader who will lead them into the future. Someone like you, Vice Minister Darlian.
Relena: Hmm.    
Relena drinks from her teacup.
Relena: [slowly, with hesitation] That’s really a shame. After finally attaining… true peace and uh… That’s a shame. Finally, true peace and freedom has been attained... and yet… What a shame. Just as we finally gained... the freedom and peace...
The other delegates make contented sounds as Relena's voice slows and her vision blurs. Her cup drops to the floor, and she slumps in her chair, unconscious. A squad of Mariemaia's soldiers enter the conference room.
Man 1: Be very gentle with her. Be gentle with her. Take her out gently.
Soldier: Sir, yes sir. Understood, sir. Yes, sir.
President: [in background monitor] So, we've all learned from the lessons of the past, and we can look forward to a future that will benefit us now, where future generations to pursue the path to peace.    
Man 1: Our hand is complete now. Our scheme is complete now. Now we have all our cards.
Man 2: That’s right. That’s right. Yes.
Soldier: Those that lack leadership ability should leave the room, and make way for those that have. Those lacking leadership should make way for those possessing it. It's time for the useless men to retire and have our leader take the seat.
Int. In a darkened room with two people, Dekim Barton and Mariemaia Khushrenada, who are watching the conclusion of the President's broadcast.
President: [broadcast continues in background monitor] It is our sincere wish that this peace will last forever.    
The monitor is shut off, and Mariemaia giggles loudly.
Dekim: There's nothing wrong with wishing for peace, but the question is: Is humanity ready for it? Nothing wrong with wishing for peace. The real question is whether mankind is ready for it. They're free to wish for peace, but has the human race gained that capacity?
Mariemaia: Then I guess we’ll just have to teach them how to deal with it. Won't we, Dekim? We’ll just have to teach them how to deal with it. Right, Dekim? It seems we'll have to teach them, Dekim.
Dekim: That would be correct, Miss Mariemaia. Agreed, Miss Mariemaia. Precisely, Miss Mariemaia.
View of many Serpent mobile suits.
Mariemaia: My father entrusted me with these Christmas presents. I've gotta deliver them to the people. *laughs* My father entrusted me with these Christmas presents. I must deliver them to the people. [laughter] We must give Father's Christmas present to everyone.
Ext. Circus tent set up on a hill overlooking a colony city at night; followed by an interior shot of the tent, showing scattered families sitting on tall bleachers, watching the show. Catherine and Trowa look out at the crowd from behind a parted curtain.
Catherine: I just can’t believe how small the crowd is today. I can't believe how small the crowd is today. I can't believe how small the crowd is.
Trowa looks up at a group of five men, at least one of them armed, standing at the top of one of the bleachers.
Trowa: It looks like this colony has other means of entertainment. It looks like this colony has other forms of entertainment. Looks like there's something else on this colony to be excited about.
Catherine: Other means of entertainment? Well, what do you mean by that? Other forms of entertainment? What do you mean? Something else exciting? What do you mean?
Trowa: I’m gonna look into it. I’m gonna check it out. It may be worth looking into.
Catherine turns from looking at the men to question Trowa, but he has already left.
Catherine: Huh? Trowa? Trowa? Trowa...
She looks down and sees that Trowa has left his mask behind.
Catherine: Huh? Trowa! Trowa… Trowa...
Ext. Circus tent: Trowa is attacking, and flattening, the men who he noted earlier. He walks over and removes and reads the identification of one of the fallen men. ID reads: "Barton Security Services, Sechang-S-Kon, 0128812160" and has the emblem of Mariemaia's Army embossed on it.
Trowa: [thinking] The Barton Foundation? Hm, I guess he hasn’t given up yet. Or maybe it’s Leia’s daughter. I think her name was Mariemaia. The Barton Foundation? I guess he hasn't given up yet. Or maybe it's Leia's daughter. I think her name was Mariemaia. Barton Foundation. Hasn't that man given up yet? No, perhaps it's Leia's daughter... I think she was called Mariemaia.
Flashback: exterior view of the Heavyarms reentry capsule on L3, with a large crew of technicians preparing the mobile suit for Operation Meteor. Trowa, currently known as No-Name, is dressed as a technician and is working on Heavyarms when he is addressed by Dekim Barton's son.
Trowa Barton: Hey, No-Name… I’ll show you something I’ve never shown anyone. Hey, no-name… I'll show you something I’ve never shown anyone. Hey, "No-name." I'll show you something special.
View of Trowa Barton with his arm wrapped around No-Name from behind. No-Name is holding a photograph of a woman holding a young girl with red hair, with the date of AC-189-MAY, and Trowa Barton is pointing out details in the image.
Trowa Barton: Her name is Mariemaia, and she’s my sister’s daughter. She's gonna be the leader of Earth’s after we conquer it. Her name is Mariemaia; she’s my sister's daughter. She’ll be Earth’s leader after we conquer it. That's Mariemaia. My sister's daughter. After we conquer the Earth, she's gonna be the ruler.
End flashback moment; Trowa is reading the identification card again and thinking.
Trowa: Hmm…    
Ext. Space. Colony exterior, followed by scenes of a shuttle bay, and then a computer control room with Heero Yuy, dressed in civilian clothing, typing at a computer station.

Pull back to reveal Duo Maxwell leaning against the wall behind Heero.
Duo: It’s Christmas. But someone always gets stuck working. *Duo walks over to Heero's workstation and reads the copy displayed on the monitor.* You know? I had no idea that Trowa had a niece. It’s Christmas. But someone always gets stuck working. Didn't know Trowa had a niece. The world's celebrating Christmas and here's some guy working his ass off. I didn't know Trowa had a niece.
Heero: So the records say. But the Trowa we know isn’t the real Trowa Barton. So the records say. But the Trowa we know isn’t the real Trowa Barton. That's just for the records. Our Trowa is not Trowa Barton.
Duo: Right, I almost forgot. Right, I almost forgot. Oh, that's right.
Heero gets up and walks away from the workstation, tossing his jacket over his shoulder and walking out of the room. Duo calls out to him as Heero prepares to walk through the doorway.
Duo: You going? You going? You leaving?
Heero: Yeah. Relena’s been kidnapped. Yeah. Relena's been kidnapped. Yeah. Relena's been kidnapped.
Duo watches as Heero runs off, then holds his hand to his head and smiles.
Duo: Huh. Anything at all for the one you love. Anything for the one you love. Well, well... So he's got a crush.
Int. X18999. Dekim Barton is addressing the troops of Mariemaia's Army in a large room amid a number of Serpent and space Leo mobile suits. As Dekim speaks, the camera view moves over the mobile suits and the ranks of soldiers before resting on Trowa Barton, now dressed as a soldier of Mariemaia's Army.
Dekim: Comrades. The time has come to stand up for Miss Mariemaia. We deeply thank you all for your efforts to tolerate the intolerable and bear the unbearable over this past year. As of today, you are starting on the road to glory! The awakening of a new humanity will be triggered by the soldiers of Mariemaia, and we shall be the symbol of hope for the people. But, before we start… Comrades. The time has come for us to stand up for Miss Mariemaia. We thank you all for your efforts to tolerate the intolerable and bear the unbearable over this past year. Today you are starting on the road to glory! The awakening of a new humanity will be triggered by the soldiers of Mariemaia, and we shall be the symbol of hope for the people. My friends, the time has come at last for us to take action for Miss Mariemaia. I would like to thank you all for enduring the last year. From now on you will follow the path of glory. The awakening of the human race will be done by the soldiers of Mariemaia, and we will be their symbol of hope.
Trowa realizes that something unanticipated is going on, and frowns.
Trowa: Hmmm.    
Dekim: We must destroy the enemy. But first we must eliminate all threatening elements. But before that, we must decide the punishment of a disturbing element.
Dekim's microphone lowers, and he draws a pistol from a side holster and points it directly at Trowa.
Dekim: Trowa Barton, proceed to the front! Trowa Barton, to the front! Trowa Barton, come forward!
Dekim fires at Trowa, but Trowa leaps into the air with an acrobatic twist, and lands on the same platform at Dekim, and raises his own gun to point at Dekim's heart, only to come face to face with Wufei Chang, dressed as a soldier of Mariemaia's Army, and drawing his sword at Trowa.
Wufei: Hold it. Hold it. Stop.
Trowa: Huh? Wufei. Wufei. Wufei...
Ext. Preventer shuttle. The shuttle is disguised as a standard transport shuttle, and Noin, dressed in her Preventer uniform, is sitting at the controls of the craft and responding to a static-filled communication window suspended in the window in front of her.
Sally: This is Water. Use secret lines D to R to respond. This is Water. Reply on secret lines D to R. This is Water, calling on secret line to R.
Noin: This is Fire. The line is secured; please go ahead. This is Fire. Line is secured; go ahead. This is Fire on line. Go ahead.
The communication window clears, revealing Sally, also in a Preventers uniform.
Sally: I found out where the fire started. I found out where the fire started. I've found its origin.
Noin: Is it L-3? Is it L-3? Was it L-3?
Sally: You know? Your instincts still amaze me. Your instincts still amaze me. You've got good intuition.
Noin: It wasn’t hard to figure out, considering the areas searched. Were you able to determine which colony it is? It wasn’t hard to figure out, considering the areas searched. Did you determine which colony it is? I just guessed, considering where you were investigating. So, have you determined which colony it is?
Sally: It’s the new colony, X18999. It's the new colony, X18999. It's the main colony, X18999.
Noin: Who’s the leader? Who’s the leader? The leader's name?
Sally consults an information printout.
Sally: Mariemaia Barton. Mariemaia Barton. Mariemaia Barton.
Noin: Barton? Barton? Barton?
Sally: As we feared, we’re too late. I expect them to declare independence or war against the Earth within a few hours. And the bad news doesn’t end there. As I feared, we're too late. I expect they’ll declare independence or war against the Earth within a few hours. And the bad news doesn’t end there. As I thought, we're already too late. In a few hours, they'll probably declare independence or war. And there's one more piece of bad news.
Noin: What is it? What else? What is it?
Sally: Vice Foreign Minister Darlian has been missing since her last official visit to X18999. Vice Minister Darlian has been missing since her last official visit to X18999. Vice Minister Darlian, who was visiting X18999, is missing.
Noin: Miss Relena?! Relena?! Miss Relena?!
Sally: I think we’d better hurry. I think we'd better hurry. We'd better hurry.
Noin: Very well. We’ll change our rendezvous point. Roger. We'll change our rendezvous point. Roger. We'll change our rendezvous point.
Switch back to exterior of Noin's spacecraft, and its increase in thruster power as Noin increases speed.
Ext. X18999: Day; interior of a bedroom with Relena slowly waking on a bed and sitting up with a slight groan; the camera view pulls back to reveal Mariemaia sitting in a high-backed chair at a nearby desk.
Mariemaia: Did you have a good sleep? So you’re awake. Are you awake now?
Mariemaia turns her chair to face Relena, as Relena rises from the bed and approaches the desk.
Relena: Who are you? Ah… Have you been caught as well? Who are you? Have you been kidnapped too? Who are you? Were you captured too?
Mariemaia: No. I’m the one that ordered them to bring you here. No. I’m the one that ordered you brought here. No. I gave the orders to bring you here.
Relena: What are you talking about? What are you talking about? W...what are saying?
Mariemaia: My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada; the daughter of Treize Khushrenada. My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada. Daughter of Treize Khushrenada. My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada. The daughter of Treize Khushrenada.
Relena: You must be joking. You’re joking. You can't be...
Mariemaia: This is no joke. It’s already been proven through DNA testing. It's no joke. It’s been proven through DNA testing. It's true. My DNA confirms it.
Relena: But that’s... But that’s... But...
Mariemaia: I'm told that there's an adult world that children do not understand. So I can’t begin to explain why I have come to live in this world. But accepting the facts as they are, I fully intend to carry out my father’s wishes. I hear there’s a so-called adult world that kids don’t understand. So I can’t begin to explain how I’ve come to live in this world. But the facts are the facts. And I intend to carry out my father’s wishes. I've been told there are circumstances that only adults understand. I don't know the reason for my birth. But truth is truth, and I intend to pursue my father's wishes.
Relena: I have no idea who’s been telling you these kinds of stories. But you are mistaken. I don't know who’s been telling you these stories. But you’re mistaken. I don't know who's taught you all this, but you're mistaken.
Mariemaia: Watch yourself! Enough! Silence! Silence.
Mariemaia grows angry and leaps from her chair.
Relena: Huh?    
Mariemaia: Watch your language! I’ve been chosen to lead the Earth Sphere Unified Nation. I won’t allow rude comments. That’s enough. I won’t allow such rude talk. I am the rightful heir to the United Earth Nation. I will not tolerate such rude remarks!
A troop of Mariemaia's soldiers burst into the room, surprising both Mariemaia and Relena.
Mariemaia: It's nothing. You may leave now. *Mariemaia directs the troops to leave* It is nothing. Leave the room. It is nothing. Leave us.
Mariemaia directs the men to leave, and they respectfully salute her and go.
Guard: Ma’am. Ma'am. Yes, ma'am.
Mariemaia: This room is being constantly monitored, Relena. So please don’t try anything suspicious. I am meeting you like this out of respect for the fact that you were once the person known as Queen Relena. Please be more careful in future. This room is under surveillance. So don’t try anything funny. I am meeting you like this out of respect for the fact that you were once Queen Relena. Be more careful in future. This room is being monitored. I suggest you do not try anything. Because I respect the fact that you were once Queen Relena, I am granting you an audience with me. I advise you to be more careful in future.
Relena: Then let me ask you this. What do you plan to do with me now? Let me ask you this. What do you plan to do with me now? Then, if I may ask. What do you intend to do with me?
Mariemaia: Don't worry, you'll find out soon enough. [giggles] You will find out soon enough. [laughs] You will know in time.
Ext. Space. A red spacecraft carrying Heero and Duo maneuvers slowly through the access area of a resource satellite.
Exterior view of the Taurus transport with the red spacecraft, still on its way to X18999; then shift to an interior view of Duo still looking out of the window.
Duo: We went through all that trouble just to obtain peace. Now somebody’s gotta help maintain it, right? We went to all that trouble just to obtain peace. Now someone's gotta help maintain it, right? We've worked so hard for this peace. Someone's gonna have to help keep it, right?
Duo looks over at Heero, who is sleeping, arms crossed, on the chair next to him.
Duo: Huh? Heero? Huh. If you wanted to sleep, why didn’t you say so? Heero? If you wanted to sleep, why didn’t you say so? Heero? Damn. Tell me when you're gonna sleep, will ya?
Duo leans back, folds his arms behind his head and closes his eyes as well, while Heero quietly sleeps.
Flashback to: Interior of a colony and an aerial view of an Alliance base with multiple buildings, and close in on a view of Heero leaping over a tall wire security fence that encloses the compound. He runs across a grassy park next to the facility, tumbles to the ground and lays on the grass in the field, watching the clouds pass in front of the view of the colony above him, arms and legs extended, laughing happily and pleased with his mission success… until the face of a young girl tilts her face in front of his field of view and giggles at Heero's surprised expression.
Heero: Huh?    
Girl: Hi there! Are you lost? Are you lost? Are you lost?
Heero sits up, and the girl reveals that she's holding a yellow flower in one hand, and a leash attached to a young puppy in the other.
Girl: I said, are you lost? I said, are you lost? Hey, are you lost?
Heero: I’ve been lost ever since the day I was born. I've been lost ever since I was born. I've been lost since I was born.
The little girl sits down on the grass next to Heero and the puppy tries to jump into her lap.
Girl: Oh, that’s so sad. Well, I’m not lost at all. I’m taking Mary out for a walk. Oh, that’s so sad. Well, I'm not lost. I'm taking Mary out for a walk. Oh, poor thing. I'm not lost. I'm walking Mary.
The little girl laughs happily as the puppy licks her face, and Heero looks at her and the puppy and smiles slightly.
Girl: Here. I’ll give you this flower. Here. I’ll give you this flower. Here. This is for you.
Heero looks surprised, but accepts the offering of the flower. As he accepts it, the puppy pulls the little girl off in another direction, and she follows, shouting and laughing at the dog as she runs.
Girl: Hey! Wait for me, Mary! Mary! Wait for me, Mary! Mary! Wait, Mary! Mary!
Heero examines the flower.
Switch to same colony, same park, now after dark, and Heero is standing next to the perimeter fence and holding a detonation switch in front of his chest, and then presses the switch with his thumb. Explosions cascade through the Alliance facility.
Heero: Mission complete. Mission complete. Mission accomplished.
Heero turns and walks away from the destruction of the facility, as buildings burn and mobile suits explode and collapse. A loud explosion makes Heero turn, and his eyes widen as he sees a mobile suit collapse over the fence and crash into a nearly residential building. Heero throws the detonator to the ground and sprints towards the building, as he reaches the feet of the collapsed mobile suit, a large explosion occurs, rocking him backwards. He grips the flower in his hand, and his eyes widen in shock.
Switch to same colony, now daylight, and Heero walking through the cooled rubble and bent steel of the buildings while still carrying his flower in his hand. Snow or ash beings to fall, and Heero looks over the wreckage of the buildings until his eyes settle first on a charred brown teddy bear, and then on the dead body of Mary, the little girl's puppy. He picks up the body of the puppy and cradles it to his chest.
Switch to view of Heero, walking slowly in a spotlight, head lowered, still cradling the body of the puppy and holding his flower. While he walks, Dekim Barton and Dr. J discuss the outcome of Heero's mission.
Dr J: That’s ludicrous! You're suggesting the use of the Gundam as a tool for massacre?! That’s ludicrous! You mean to use the Gundam as a tool of carnage?! Ridiculous Do you intend to make the Gundams into weapons for mass murder?!
Dekim: This is war! It is no big deal… sacrificing the general public. Got it? Now retrain him at once! The humane feeling of kindness is unnecessary for our weapon! This is a war! Sacrificing the general public is of no relevance. Got it? Now retrain him at once! Our weapon has no use for human kindness! This is war! Civilian sacrifices are inevitable. Listen, retrain him right away. It is unnecessary for our weapons to have human emotions, like kindness.
Dr J: You’re right there. But do you really believe Heero Yuy would be pleased if we buried his humanity? You’re right. But do you really believe Heero Yuy would be pleased if we obliterated mankind? Of course not. But do you think Heero Yuy would be happy if we wiped out the human race?
End flashback and return to an interior view of Duo reaching over and shaking Heero; trying to wake him from his sleep.
Duo: Heero! Hey, Heero! Wake up, Heero! Heero! Hey, Heero! Wake up! Heero... Hey, Heero, wake up, will ya!
Heero wakes and turns to look at Duo.
Heero: What is it? What is it? What?
Duo: That little girl is just about to issue a statement. That little girl is about to issue a statement. Seems like that girl's gonna make a statement.
They both turn their attention to the monitor in front of them.
Ext. Colony L-3 X18999, now defended by a large number of armed Taurus Mobile Dolls, followed by a video image of a young, red-headed girl giving a speech.
Mariemaia: We, at Colony L-3 X18999 hereby wish to declare our independence from the Earth Sphere Unified Nation, and at the same time, declare war against the Nation! My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada. I'm the daughter of Treize Khushrenada. We, at Colony L-3X18999 hereby wish to announce our independence from the Earth Sphere Unified Nation and declare war! I am a legitimate heir of the World Nation Sovereign. My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada… daughter of Treize Khushrenada.

My name is Mariemaia Khushrenada, the daughter of Treize Khushrenada.
Int. Preventer spacecraft, with both Sally Po and Lucrezia Noin, dressed in Preventer uniforms, watching the broadcast.
Sally: What'd she say?! What?!  What?!
Noin: His daughter?! Treize's daughter?! Treize's daughter!
Holiday scene of a city plaza decorated for Christmas and populated with families all staring at a large video screen broadcasting Mariemaia's image.
Mariemaia: I’m carrying out my father’s will. It is in the human consciousness to fight! I’m carrying out my father's will. It’s in human nature to fight! I will follow my father's wishes. Humans have a meaningful existence because of their will to fight.
Exterior of the ESUN Headquarters in Luxembourg. It is snowing. Scene shifts to an interior view of the President, dressed in a robe and a nightcap, talking on a video phone.
President: But how could you let this happen?! Why couldn’t you have prevented this ahead of time?! How could this happen?! Why couldn’t you have prevented this?! What's the meaning of this?! Why didn't you do something before this happened?!
Interior of Lady Une's office, set on an upper floor with large windows showing the lit buildings of the city at night. she is at her desk and talking on a video phone with the President.
Lady Une: I already reported on this matter the other day, Sir. I reported this matter the other day. I reported this matter the other day.
President: I know that! But your department is getting sufficient funds to prevent this exact kind of situation! I know that! But your department receives sufficient funds to prevent these situations! I've read the report! But I gave you a budget so this sort of situation wouldn't happen!
Lady Une: I understand, and we’re doing everything we can to stop this from progressing. however, it appears that they had prepared for this extensively, even before our department was ever formed. I understand that. But it seems they’d prepared for this even before our department was ever formed. I understand. We're doing our best to prevent their actions but it seems like they were prepared in advance. Probably before our organization was formed...
The president disconnects the call, startling Une. She sets the receiver back on the cradle of the phone and stands with both hands braced on the surface of her desk.
Lady Une: I can stand here and make excuses all day. But the question still remains… whether or not we can we stop their aggression without some help. I can stand here and make excuses all day. But the question remains… whether or not we can we stop their aggression without help. They're just excuses. The problem is...can we stop them with our forces alone?
She hears a door open, and looks up at her unexpected visitor.
Lady Une: Who is it? Who’re you? Who is it?!
Zechs enters her office and approaches her desk, his face hidden in deep shadow.
Zechs: Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.
Lady Une: Why… You’re... You’re... You...
Zechs: I’ve come to ask for a code name. If I may suggest, I’d like the name "Wind"… appropriate for one who puts out fires. I’ve come to ask for a code name. I’d like the name "Wind"… appropriate for one who puts out fires. I would also like to have a code name. Perhaps "Wind." The wind that blows out the flame.
Zechs smiles, and the scene switches again.
Ext. Heero and Duo's red transport spacecraft, switch to interior view of Heero and Duo in the cockpit of the craft.
Duo: We’re almost in the L-3 Area. And… how do you suggest we get in? We're almost in L-3 Area. So, how do you suggest we get in? We're almost in L-3's sector. So, how are we gonna get in?
Heero: We could take over a couple of mobile suits, but there's a strong possibility we’d be targeted while we're boarding it. We could take over a couple mobile suits. But we'd probably be targeted while boarding. We could use a Mobile Suit, but we'd probably be shot down before we landed.
Duo: Then we’ll have to fly straight through. Then we'll have to fly straight through. Then we'll just have to force our way through.
Heero: It’s the only way. It’s the only way. We have no other choice.
Duo: [Duo groans] Man! This time, try to use your head a bit, will ya? Man! How about using your head? Man, how about using your brain once in a while?
Heero: Same to you. You too. You too.
Duo: What…?! What…?! What?!
Int. Preventer shuttle. Sally and Noin hail the shuttle.
Sally: There's an unidentified shuttle ahead of us! It’s flying straight into the troop of mobile suits! Unidentified shuttle ahead! It's flying into the troop of mobile suits! A civilian shuttle is ahead of us. It's heading for the Mobile Suits!
Noin: Calling to the shuttle ahead of us; come in! This is a danger zone! Retreat now! Attention, approaching shuttle! This is a danger zone! Retreat! Message to shuttle, respond! This is a danger zone, turn back immediately!
Duo appears in a video communication window and waves at Sally and Noin.
Duo: Yo! Long time no see! Yo! Long time no see! Hey, long time no see!
Noin: Duo! And Heero? Duo… And Heero?! Duo! Heero, too?
Duo: Looks like they’re gonna have quite a Christmas party there. So, you know, we thought we’d just give 'em a little present. Seems they’re gonna have quite a Christmas party. Thought we’d give them a little present. Seems like there's gonna be a big Christmas party, so we're giving them a present.
Sally: No way! Not without your Gundams! How are you going to retaliate? Not without your Gundams! You have no way to retaliate! You don't even have your Gundams! You haven't got a chance!
Duo: Oh… we’ll think of something. That is if we can get to the colony. I’m sure we’ll think of something. That’s if we can get to the colony. I think we can manage it. That is, if we can reach the colony.
Noin: Duo, Heero. Why don’t you join forces with us one more time? Duo, Heero. Why don't you join forces with us once more? Duo, Heero, why don't we join forces again?
Duo: I’ll think about it when the time comes. See ya! We don’t want to be the last ones at the party now do we? P.S. Don’t blame us if they run out of treats. I'll think about it when the time comes. See ya! We don’t want to be late for the party! Oh yeah. Don't blame us if they run out of food. I'll think about it when the time comes. We'll be late for the party, see ya. P.S. Don't be upset if there's no cake left.
Duo ends the transmission and the screen fades to static and then disappears.
Sally: They haven’t changed. They haven’t changed. Dear me.
Noin: Sally, we’ll have to contain the Tauruses ourselves. We'll just direct their attention toward us. Sally, we'll have to contain the Tauruses ourselves. Let’s divert their attention to us. Sally, we'll create a diversion for the Taurus. We have to get the enemy's attention.
Sally: Okay! We’re backing them up after all. Okay. So we’re backing them up after all. Roger. So we end up backing them up anyway.
Noin: Yes, but right now, we’re depending on them. But right now, we’ve gotta depend on them. At the moment we only have them to rely on.
Sally: Yes. But that’s what’s so reassuring! Yes. That's what’s so reassuring! Yes, that's why it's so encouraging.
Duo and Heero's shuttle approaches X18999 and comes under fire from the Aries Mobile Doll troops surrounding the colony.
Duo: How’s this for some shuttle maneuvering?! How’s this for some shuttle maneuvering?! See that! Am I impressive or what?!
Heero: I was counting on those skills right from the beginning. I was counting on those skills right from the beginning. Yeah, I was depending on your skills from the beginning.
Duo: That’s satisfying to hear! That’s good to hear! You've just made my day!
Duo maneuvers the shuttle to evade the majority of the fire. Meanwhile, Sally and Noin have followed Heero and Duo, and begin to fire on the Aries from the Preventer shuttle, eventually revealing that the cargo hold contains a number of missiles, which they aim at the Aries forces.
Duo: Hold on tight, man! We’re going in! Outta my way! Hold on tight! We’re going in! Outta my way! Hold on tight! I'm gonna punch through! Outta my way!
The shuttle takes direct fire as it nears the docking bay of the colony. The red spacecraft separates from the Taurus carrier, and the Taurus carrier smashes an Aries against the side of the colony, while the red craft takes more file before careening into a landing in the docking bay.
Noin is seen piloting the disguised Preventer shuttle, now devoid of its cargo of missiles, out of the area.
Ext. view of the interplanetary transport ship manned by Quatre and the Maganacs, followed by an interior view of the main command cabin.
Quatre: I’m grateful to have you people accompany me, Rashid. I'm grateful to have you guys accompany me, Rashid. I'm really sorry to have dragged all of you into this.
Rashid: Don’t mention it, Master Quatre. Don’t mention it, Master Quatre. Now none of that, Master Quatre.
Quatre: It’s all my fault to begin with. If I hadn’t mentioned sending the Gundams into the sun, this wouldn’t have happened. It’s all my fault to begin with. If I hadn't mentioned sending the Gundams into the sun, this wouldn’t have happened. It was my fault. If I hadn't suggested sending the Gundams to the sun, none of this...
Rashid: You couldn't possibly have predicted this kind of thing would happen. Right now, let’s just concentrate on the immediate problem. No one could have predicted this would happen. Let's just concentrate on the immediate problem. No one imagined something like this would happen. Let's concentrate on the problem at hand.
Quatre: Yes, you’re quite right. Yes, you’re right. Yes, I suppose so.
Auda: Master Quatre, do you think we can still catch up to the Gundam disposal block? Do you think we can still catch up to the Gundam disposal block? But can we make it to the scrap satellite in time?
Quatre consults a mission schematic on his monitor.
Quatre: The block is more than fifty days away from the orbit of Venus. With this Interplanetary Transport Ship, we should barely be able to catch up to it. The block is over fifty days away from Venus’ orbit. With this Interplanetary Transport Ship, we should barely catch up to it. The satellite is at a distance of more than 50 days from Mercury's orbit. This planetary transport ship should just make it.
Ahmed: Don’t worry, everything will work out just fine. Don't worry, everything will work out fine. Don't worry, it'll work out.
Abdul: Yeah, we wouldn’t want to return just to find that there's no more Earth. We wouldn’t want to return to find the Earth gone. I don't want to return home and find out there's no Earth.
Quatre: [Thinks] It all depends on us. We must retrieve the Gundams at all costs. It all depends on us. We must retrieve the Gundams at all costs. We hold the key. No matter what, I have to get everyone's Gundam back.
Ext. Space. View of the Interplanetary Transport Ship accelerating towards the sun.
Colony interior: Heero (in a purple Space Leo) and Duo (now in a blue Space Leo), are under fire from a squad of Mariemaia's soldiers, also in Leos. Duo and Heero maintain contact with each other via the video monitors in the interior of their mobile suits, but the battle forces them in opposite directions.
Duo: I’m surprised they were able to keep this many mobile suits intact! I’m surprised they kept this many mobile suits intact! How the hell did they hide all these Mobile Suits?
Duo: Staying here will only work to our disadvantage! Staying here will only work to our disadvantage! It's getting hard into hold this position.
Heero: Destroy all that you can, then escape. Proceed at your own discretion. Destroy all you can, then escape. Proceed at your own discretion. Disengage after on this last one. We'll have to act independently from here on in.
Duo: Roger! Roger! Roger!
Duo and Heero head off in different directions. Duo flies his mobile suit to the end of a corridor, a door opens, and a Serpent mobile suit stands waiting.
Duo: It’s a new model! It’s a new model! A new type of Mobile Suit?
The new suit opens fire on Duo. Duo takes evasive action, taking shelter behind an outcropping in the wall as he studies the new suit… and begins to recognize the soldier he faces.
Duo: It’s a new model! Man, this guy's pretty good. Hey… I know this… I know this style of combat! No question now! Trowa’s in that suit! He's pretty good. Hey… I know this… I know this style of combat! No question! Trowa’s in that suit! You! He's pretty good! His...his way of fighting is... I'm sure of it, you're Trowa!
Duo's mobile suit moves away from the wall and attacks the Serpent MS.
Duo: Well take this! Damn! Damn it! Damn you! Shit!
Heero, in the midst of fighting a number of Leos, looks over his shoulder in the nick of time to evade a strike from Altron… piloted by Wufei, who is now wearing the uniform of Mariemaia's Army. Wufei attacks Heero, and Heero responds.
Wufei: I’ve always wanted to have a chance to fight you like this. I've always wanted to fight you like this! I've always wanted to fight you.
Heero: What’s going on, Wufei?! What’s going on, Wufei?! What are you up to, Wufei?!
Wufei: Are you guys doing the right thing? Are you guys doing the right thing? Are you in the right?
Heero: What?! What?! What?
Wufei: I’m asking if you guys are doing the right thing?! I'm asking if you guys are doing the right thing?! I'm asking, are you in the right?!
Song (Lyrics): I feel love, reflection
The reflection of your eyes looking at me
Is etched in my mind as an everlasting
Never-ending story
Beating these wings with all my might
To shake off all sadness, shake off all pain
These wings will always be spread across my heart
These wings that I received from you
As painful as it may be and as upset as I may get
I hope to keep feeling this precious love beating
I feel love, reflection
We'll have many passionate dreams together
Unafraid to make mistakes We'll look to each other
I feel love, reflection
The refection of your eyes looking at me
Is etched in my mind as an everlasting
Never-ending story
