Noin: HmmmÖ
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.

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 doesnít 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 wouldnít be financially supporting us Preventers. Heís pretty smart for a person elected democratically. He understands that. Otherwise, the government wouldnít financially back us Preventers. Heís pretty smart for a person elected democratically. He knows. Or he wouldn't have given the "Preventers" a budget.

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 donít suit us. What's wrong? Preventers only put out fires. These ceremonies donít suit us. So? The Preventers are only firefighters. We're out of place there. And?
Sally: Thereís 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 itís a new mobile suit model? A new type of Mobile Suit...
Sally: Iím using a number of sources to quickly determine where itís from. Weíve gotta put out this fire while itís still small. Iím using various sources to determine where itís from. Weíve gotta put out this fire while itís 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 isnít 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.

Weíve 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 theyíre members of the Earth Sphere Unified Nation. One canít expect a stable lifestyle if oneís 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.

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.

The monitor is shut off.
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 weíll just have to teach them how to deal with it. Won't we, Dekim? Weíll 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.

She looks down and sees that Trowa has left his mask behind.
Catherine: Huh? Trowa! TrowaÖ Trowa...

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. Relenaís 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.

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...

I expect theyíll declare independence or war against the Earth within a few hours. And the bad news doesnít end there. As I thought, we're already too late.

Quatre shrugs in response to Duo, and Duo continues speaking quietly in an aside to Heero.

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 Venusí 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: Donít 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 wouldnít want to return just to find that there's no more Earth. We wouldnít 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.
Ext. Space. View of the Taurus transport with the red spacecraft as it travels through space on its way to X18999. Duo looks out of the window towards the stars and reflects on his past.
Duo: Looks like Iím back to being the God of Death. I'm back to being |the God of Death.  
Flashback to: Interior of a large darkened room containing the Gundam Deathscythe, resting prone on a transport platform with Duo placing multiple explosive charges on its body. Duo sets the final explosive, and runs outside of the room to stand behind a doorframe. He holds the detonator control in his hand and prepares to depress the plunger with his thumb.
Duo: So long, old buddy.  So long...buddy. This is the end.
Duo presses the button, and nothing happens except for a clicking noise, he shakes the detonator in confusion.
Duo: What happened? Why wonít it explode? What happened?! Why wonít it explode?! Whatís wrong?! Why wonít it blow up?!
Duo turns to look back in the room at Deathscythe.
Duo: Arrgh. What did I do wrong?! What did I do wrong?! Where did I mess up?
Prof G: Duo! Duo! Duo.
Duo: Huh?
Duo turns around in surprise and sees Professor G standing in front of him. Professor G drops a set of fuses to the floor.
Prof G: Deathscythe is an excellent piece of art! Think of a better way to use it than destroying it. Deathscythe is a superb piece of art! Think of a better way, rather than destroying it. Deathscythe is an excellent work of art. Come up with an idea other than destroying it.
Duo: Humph, I'm not about to have my buddy here used as a tool for a massacre. I wonít let my buddy be used for mass destruction! Iím not gonna have my pal turned into a tool for mass murder.
Duo turns back to look at Deathscythe, and while is attention is diverted, Professor G walks up to Duo and pulls a pistol from the folds of Duo's shirt.
Duo: Hmm? Huh?
Prof G: Hmm, I see you were planning to kill me, after you destroyed Deathscythe. So, you were planning to kill me, after you destroyed Deathscythe. So, after destroying Deathscythe, you were going to kill me.
Prof G brandishes the pistol in the air as Duo's expression shifts into a resigned smile.
Duo: I was gonna kill everyone here. Including myself. If it meant peace for this colony, Iíd be the God of Death any day. I was gonna kill everyone here. Including myself. If it meant peace for this Colony, Iíd be the God of Death any day. Everyone here, including me. Iíll gladly become Death, if itís for the peace of the colony.
Prof G: If youíre prepared to go that far, try and outwit me. If youíd go that far, then try and outwit me. If youíre so determined, try to outwit me!
Prof G lowers his arm, and the gun, and turns to addresses Duo.
Duo: What? What? What?
Prof G: Duo, why don't you steal Deathscythe? Duo, steal Deathscythe! Duo, steal Deathscythe.
Duo: Huh?! Huh?! Uh?
Prof G: Take it to Earth now. Forget Operation Meteor! Donít carry out Operation Meteor, just descend to Earth.
Prof G tosses the pistol at Duo, and he catches it. Then Prof G turns and walks slowly back down the dark hallway, giving instructions to Duo as he walks away.
Prof G: Just ignore Operation Meteor! Thereís a man called Howard on the Pacific Ocean. You can rely on him. Of course, go as the God of Death. Thereís a man called Howard on the Pacific Ocean. You can rely on him. Of course, go as the God of Death. Thereís a man named Howard in the Pacific. Go see him. Of course, as Death.
Duo: The God of Death. The God of Death.  Death, huh?
Duo spins the gun around his finger, gunslinger-style.
Duo:  Well, itís a lot better than being the hero of a massacre. Itís a lot better than being the hero of a massacre. Much better than a hero of mass murder.
Duo smiles and holds the gun in a tight grip.
End flashback and return to an 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 somebodyís 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 didnít you say so? Heero? If you wanted to sleep, why didnít 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 successÖ 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: Iíve 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, thatís so sad. Well, Iím not lost at all. Iím taking Mary out for a walk. Oh, thatís 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. Iíll give you this flower. Here. Iíll 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: Thatís ludicrous! You're suggesting the use of the Gundam as a tool for massacre?! Thatís 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 dealÖ 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: Youíre right there. But do you really believe Heero Yuy would be pleased if we buried his humanity? Youíre 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 KhushrenadaÖ daughter of Treize Khushrenada. We, Colony L-3 X18999, declare independence from the United Earth Nation and at the same time declare war on them. I am the rightful heir to the United Earth Nation. 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: Iím carrying out my fatherís will. It is in the human consciousness to fight! Iím carrying out my father's will. Itís 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 couldnít you have prevented this ahead of time?! How could this happen?! Why couldnít 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 weíre 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 theyíd 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 remainsÖ whether or not we can we stop their aggression without some help. I can stand here and make excuses all day. But the question remainsÖ 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? Whoíre 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: WhyÖ Youíre... Youíre... You...
Zechs: Iíve come to ask for a code name. If I may suggest, Iíd like the name "Wind"Ö appropriate for one who puts out fires. Iíve come to ask for a code name. Iíd like the name "Wind"Ö 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.
Act 2
Ext. Heero and Duo's red transport spacecraft, switch to interior view of Heero and Duo in the cockpit of the craft.
Duo: Weíre almost in the L-3 Area. AndÖ 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 weíd 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 weíll have to fly straight through. Then we'll have to fly straight through. Then we'll just have to force our way through.
Heero: Itís the only way. Itís 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: WhatÖ?! WhatÖ?! What?!
Int. Preventer shuttle. Sally and Noin hail the shuttle.
Sally: There's an unidentified shuttle ahead of us! Itís 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? DuoÖ And Heero?! Duo! Heero, too?
Duo: Looks like theyíre gonna have quite a Christmas party there. So, you know, we thought weíd just give 'em a little present. Seems theyíre gonna have quite a Christmas party. Thought weíd 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: OhÖ weíll think of something. That is if we can get to the colony. Iím sure weíll think of something. Thatís 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 donít 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: Iíll think about it when the time comes. See ya! We donít want to be the last ones at the party now do we? P.S. Donít blame us if they run out of treats. I'll think about it when the time comes. See ya! We donít 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 havenít changed. They havenít changed. Dear me.
Noin: Sally, weíll have to contain the Tauruses ourselves. We'll just direct their attention toward us. Sally, we'll have to contain the Tauruses ourselves. Letís divert their attention to us. Sally, we'll create a diversion for the Taurus. We have to get the enemy's attention.
Sally: Okay! Weíre backing them up after all. Okay. So weíre backing them up after all. Roger. So we end up backing them up anyway.
Noin: Yes, but right now, weíre depending on them. But right now, weíve gotta depend on them. At the moment we only have them to rely on.
Sally: Yes. But thatís whatís so reassuring! Yes. That's whatís 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: Howís this for some shuttle maneuvering?! Howís 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: Thatís satisfying to hear! Thatís 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! Weíre going in! Outta my way! Hold on tight! Weíre 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.
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: Iím surprised they were able to keep this many mobile suits intact! Iím 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: Itís a new model! Itís 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 suitÖ and begins to recognize the soldier he faces.
Duo: Itís a new model! Man, this guy's pretty good. HeyÖ I know thisÖ I know this style of combat! No question now! Trowaís in that suit! He's pretty good. HeyÖ I know thisÖ I know this style of combat! No question! Trowaís 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 AltronÖ piloted by Wufei, who is now wearing the uniform of Mariemaia's Army. Wufei attacks Heero, and Heero responds.
Wufei: Iíve 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: Whatís going on, Wufei? Whatís 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: Iím 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?!
Heero: Wufei! Press the detonation switch! Wufei! Hit the self-detonation switch! Wufei, push the self destruct switch!
Wufei: Die!
Heero's mobile suit drops back from the fight, and Heero, wearing a spacesuit, emerges from the cockpit to address Wufei.
Heero: I'll say it again. Press the button. I repeat. Hit the switch. Iíll say it once more. Push the self destruct switch!
Wufei: Hmph.
Duo's Leo takes many direct hits and is thrown backward to the ground by the force of the Serpent's attack.
In the interior of Duo's mobile suit, Duo tries to reason with Trowa.
Duo: T...Trowa. Why have you betrayed us?! T...Trowa. Why have you betrayed us?! T...Trowa, why did you betray us?!
Trowa: You've got the wrong guy. Iím not Trowa. Youíve got the wrong guy. Iím not Trowa. Youíve got the wrong guy. Iím not Trowa.
The Serpent's shoulder cannons take aim at Duo's mobile suit.
Duo: You-youíre not serious?! Youíre not serious?! Are you serious?!
The Serpent fires, and the missiles head directly at Duo's mobile suit.
Duo: So thisíll end everything, will it?! So thisíll end everything?! So this is the end.
Fade to black...
Flashback to: Earth, a clear night with a full moon in the sky. A Leo mobile suit walks slowly through a wooded area along with a troop of other mobile suits. Switch to an interior view of a much younger Trowa at the controls of the mobile suit. He is wearing a green army fatigue jacket, with a scarf around his neck and a cross on a chain. The insignia on the jacket matches the one on the Leo.
Trowa: I am not Trowa. Iím a nameless soldier that has been on the battlefield from as far back as I can remember. I am not Trowa. Iím a nameless soldier whoís been on the battlefield for as long as I remember. Iím not Trowa. From my earliest memories Iíve been a nameless soldier on the battlefield.
Exterior of a colony, and then an interior view of a large room with the Gundam Heavyarms and a number of workers.
Trowa: The first time I met this man called Trowa, was when I was helping with adjustments to Heavyarms. The first time I met the man called Trowa I was helping with adjustments to HeavyArms. I met a man named Trowa when I was working as an mechanic on Heavyarms.
Trowa Barton (Dekim's son) is addressing Doctor S and his assistant.
Trowa Barton: Whatís this all about? Why are we limiting all of our attacks to OZ?! Whatís this all about? Why are we limiting all of our attacks to OZ?! What do you mean?! Why only target OZ?!
Dr S: If we proceed with Operation Meteor, two billion people will die. Trowa? Donít you think this is going too far just for revenge on Heero Yuy? If we proceed with Operation Meteor, two billion people will die. Donít you think this is going too far for revenge for Heero Yuy, huh? 2 thousand millionÖ If we put Operation Meteor in motion, 2 billion people will die. Donít you think weíre going too far for Heero Yuyís revenge?
Trowa Barton: The purpose of this plan is not revenge! The purpose of the plan is for the colonies to conquer Earth, all for the awakenings of a "new mankind"! The purpose of this plan is not revenge! The plan is for the colonies to conquer Earth for the awakening of a "new mankind"! This operationís purpose is not revenge! Itís so the people of the Colonies conquer Earth to begin the awakening of the new human race.
Dr S: That certainly sounds like something Dekim of the Barton Foundation would think of. That sounds like something Dekim of the Barton Foundation would dream up. Indeed, something Dekim of the Barton Foundation would come up with.
Trowa Barton: I see. You guys have something against that, don't you? Youíre jealous that my father and us members of the Barton Foundation will rule the Earth Sphere. I see. You guys have something against that? Youíre jealous that my father and the Barton Foundation will rule the Earth Sphere. I see, thatís what you donít like. My father and us conquering Earth doesnít amuse you!
Dr S: Where are you going, Trowa?! Where are you going, Trowa?! Where are you going, Trowa?
Trowa Barton: I'm telling this to my Father. To tell this to my Father. Iím reporting you to Father.
Doktor S holds out his arm to prevent his assistant from physically confronting Trowa Barton.
Trowa Barton: Just watch me. Iíll proceed with Operation Meteor if I must do so myself. Just watch me. Iíll proceed with Operation Meteor by myself, if I must. You better watch it. Iíll start Operation Meteor myself if I have to.
Doktor S's assistant draws his pistol and shoots Trowa Barton in the back. Trowa falls to the ground, twitches, and dies.
Dr S: Now youíve done it. Now youíve done it. Now youíve done it...
Assist: Iím sorry. But I have a family on Earth, so I... Iím sorry. But I have family on Earth... Iím sorry... I have family on Earth...
Doktor S hears the sounds of a tool dropping somewhere in the room.
Dr S: What the? Whoís there?! Whoís there?! Whoís there?!
Trowa walks around a corner and towards the two men, hands raised.
Trowa: I have no name. If you must call me something, just call me "No-name." I have no name. If you like, call me "No-name." I have no name. If you have to, call me "No-name."
Doktor S's assistant points the gun at Trowa.
Assist: Were you watching us? You saw us?! You saw it!
Trowa: Iíll understand if you want to kill me. But I must tell you: I might retaliate. Iíll understand if you want to kill me. But I might retaliate You can kill me if you want, but I might resist a little.
Doktor S reaches over and forces his assistant to lower the gun.
Dr S: No, stop. Sooner or later theyíll find out about this anyway. Thereís no use trying to hide the facts, now. Stop it. Theyíll find out about this sooner or later. Thereís no use trying to hide the facts. Stop it. Theyíll find out sooner or later. Itís useless trying to cover it up.
Trowa: Hmph. Youíre giving up too easily. Youíre giving up too easily. You give up easily.
Dr S: What? What? What?
Trowa: I was feeling insecure without a name. I wouldnít mind taking his name. Iíve been feeling insecure without a name. I wouldnít mind taking on his name. Itís been inconvenient not having a name. I could take his name if you want.
Assist: What on Earth are you talking about? What are you talking about? What are you saying?
Trowa: It seems clear to me that I would be best suited for the battlefields. I seem to be best suited for the battlefields. Seems like the stage called battle suits me best.
Dr S: Are you saying youíll pilot this Gundam suit, Heavyarms? Are you saying youíll pilot this suit, Heavyarms? Are you suggesting you take Heavyarms?
Trowa: Yes, I've become fond of this suit. But I have absolutely no interest in conquering Earth. I like this suit. But I have no interest in conquering Earth. I like this machine. But I have no interest in taking over Earth.
Dr S: Why not. As of this moment, your name is Trowa Barton. You are now in charge of Operation Meteor! Alright. As of this moment, your name is Trowa Barton. You are now in charge of Operation Meteor! Fine... From now on, you are Trowa Barton. I entrust you with Operation Meteor.
Trowa: I understand. I understand. Roger.
Back on X18999, in the cockpit of the Leo, Duo braces for the impact of the Serpent's missiles. The charge from the missiles' impact sends a burst of flame and smoke exhaust down the corridors of the colony, and across the space between Wufei's Altron and Heero's Leo. When the smoke clears, Heero has disappeared.
Wufei: HmmmÖ.
Int. In the cockpit of the Leo.
Duo: Huh?
Duo looks up from his cockpit at the viewscreen and sees the two impact craters from the missiles placed just in front of his Leo.
Duo: Trowa... Trowa... Trowa...
Duo opens the hatch on his suit, and emerges wearing a spacesuit and looks around at the damage before propelling himself into one of the craters.
Duo: Man, couldnít he have taken it a little easier? Couldnít he have taken things a little easier? He always has to make it complicated.
Exterior of the interplanetary transport ship, now heading on a course towards the sun. Switch to interior view of the spacecraft bridge, where Quatre, sitting next to Rashid, is looking at a monitor, and begins to discuss course options with the Maganacs.
Quatre: At this rate, itíll take us five more days before we rendezvous with the resources disposal satellite. However, we could reduce our time by up to eighty hours by taking this course. At this rate, itíll take us five more days to rendezvous with the resources disposal satellite. We could reduce the time by up to eighty hours on this route. At this rate, itíll take 5 days until we reach the rendezvous point with the scrap satellite but if we take this route, we could cut 80 hours off our trip.
Abdul: That's great! Then, letís take that course! Great! Then letís take that route! Thatís great! Letís take that route!
Auda: But considering the fuel needed to accelerate now, and decelerate at the rendezvous point, with that course, weíd be out of propelling power by the time we got there. But considering the fuel needed to accelerate now, and decelerate at the rendezvous point, weíd have no propulsion by the time we got there. But to do that we need fuel to accelerate, and once weíre there, the fuel to decelerate meaning weíll use up most of the shipís propellant.
Ahmed: But then thereís no way to get back, is there? Then thereís no way to get back? Does that mean weíll have no way to get home?
Quatre: No, there is a way to get back. If we detonated the power furnace and used the explosion as our propelling force, the ship can return to Earth in no time. Weíd fly the ship to Venus, and use the catapult effect of its gravity to hurl us towards Earth. No, thereís a way to get back. If we detonated the power generator and used the explosion as our propulsion, we could return to Earth in no time. Weíd fly the ship to Venus, and use the catapult effect of its gravity to get to Earth. No, there is a way. If we explode the fusion furnace in the satellite and use that as propulsion, we can get back to Earth fairly quickly. We can take this ship back to Venus, and from there a gravity catapult can take her back.
Auda: Our main problem is the time we have at the rendezvous point. Calculations indicate this ship will run alongside the satellite for only five seconds. Our main problem is the time we have at the rendezvous point. According to calculations, this shipíll run alongside the satellite for only five seconds. The problem is the timing at the rendezvous point. Estimates show the point of contact is only about 5 seconds.
Rashid: The question is how many can we get on in five seconds? How many of people can we get on in five seconds? How many of us can get through in those 5 seconds...
Quatre: We can't avoid some danger. Since Duoís periodic message hasnít come, itís likely things are becoming more serious back there. Some danger canít be avoided. Since Duoís scheduled message hasnít arrived, itís likely that things are getting more difficult there. Risk is unavoidable. We didnít get the routine mail from Duo. That means the situation is quite severe.
Rashid: Okay, then itís decided. The satellite team will consist of Abdul, myself, and... Then itís decided. Our satellite team will consist of Abdul, myself, and... Then the decisionís made. The ones going over there would be me, Abdul and...
Quatre: No. I will be going alone. No, I will be going alone. No, Iíll be the only one.
Rashid: But, Master Quatre! Master Quatre! Master Quatre!
Abdul: But, please, take us with you, Master Quatre! Please, take us with you! No way! Please take us!
Quatre: Rashid, start the booster one last time. Rashid, start the booster one last time. Rasid, take charge of the jet blast.
Ahmed: Master Quatre, I want you to know that every one of us is ready to give our lives up for you at any time. Each of us is ready to give up his life for you, anytime! All of us are prepared to give up our lives for you anytime!
Quatre: There is nothing more precious than life in this universe; Sandrock made that point clear to me. In this universe, nothing is more precious than life. Sandrock made that clear to me. Thereís nothing more important than life in this world. Sandrock has taught me that.
Ext. Space. A large number of Taurus mobile suits are moving in formation through space. Switch to exterior view of the Preventer shuttle, and then an interior view of the cockpit with Noin and Sally.
Sally: The Taurus troops ahead of us are currently heading towards the relay station. The Taurus troops ahead are heading toward the relay station. Currently, the Taurus unit ahead of us is heading for the transit station.
Noin: Theyíre taking a roundabout route, but their destination still does appear to be Earth. Theyíre taking a roundabout route. But their destination is still Earth. Theyíre taking a long detour, but their final destination is Earth.
Sally: A Preventer cruiser will be here from the Moon Base shortly. Iím sure we'll be able to buy a little time when they arrive. A Preventer cruiser will arrive from the Lunar Base shortly. Iím sure we can buy some time when they arrive. The Preventer cruiser will arrive from the moon base soon. I suppose we could buy them some time...
Noin: Any word from Heero and Duo? Any word from Heero and Duo? Any word from Heero?
Sally: Uh uh.
Sally shakes her head "no."
Noin: ReallyÖ Sally, were you able to confirm any new types of mobile suits in the last battle? ReallyÖ Sally. Did you confirm any new suit models in the last battle? I see... Sally, did you notice any new Mobile Suits in that fight?
Sally: No, but I think they were all Taurus and Space Leo suits. No. Come to think of it, they were all Taurus and Space Leos. No. There were only Taurus and Space Leos...
Noin: Weíve been taking them too lightly. Just as I thoughtÖ Weíve underestimated them. Damn, Iíve underestimated them!
Sally: The heat detector shows nothing. So those troops are primarily of mobile dolls! The heat detector shows nothing. So those troops consisted primarily of mobile dolls! No thermal readings. That unit is mostly Mobile Dolls.
Noin: Right. That means the main troops with the new mobile suits are deployed somewhere else. Right. That means the main troops with the new mobile suits are deployed elsewhere. The new Mobile Suit unit is being deployed somewhere else.
Sally: Huh, quite an extensive operation. Then where could the main troops be? Quite an elaborate operation. Then where could the main troops be? Itís a well planned decoy. But then where is the main unit?
Noin: I don't know, but weíll leave this area. Contact Earth about it at once! In any case, weíll leave this area! Contact Earth at once! In any case, weíll leave here. Send an urgent message to Earth.
Sally: Roger! Roger! Roger.
Ext. City. Back on Earth, scenes of the Christmas decorations and people in the streets of the city are followed by a view of Lady Une looking out at the city from the plate glass windows of her office, high above the city streets. She has her hand raised to the glass and watches as it begins to snow.
Lady Une: Those people have no idea what Mariemaia is going to do to them. But with the worldís lack of strength to retaliate, she wonít need five minutes to take political control. What would you do in this situation, Mr. Treize? These people have no idea what Mariemaia will do to them. But with the worldís lack of strength to retaliate, she wonít need five minutes to take political control. What would you do in this situation, Treize? People still do not see Mariemaia as a threat... With no defense, a political change on Earth will take less than 5 minutes. What shall we do, Treize?
Back on the interplanetary transport shipÖ
Auda: We found the resources disposal satellite. Weíve got about 180 minutes before we reach it. We found the resources disposal satellite. Weíve got about three hours before we reach the satellite. Scrap satellite on radar. Approximately 180 minutes to target contact.
Quatre: Iím almost there, Sandrock.
Flashback to the start of Operation Meteor: Professor H and Quatre, dressed in a spacesuit, are standing in a room wilt computer and communication equipment. Professor H is giving Quatre the final set of instructions before Quatre leaves in Sandrock for Earth.
Quatre: Self-detonating?! Self-detonation device? Self destruct switch?
Prof H: Thatís right. Itís been installed in Sandrock. Thatís right. Itís been installed in Sandrock. Yes, Iíve attached one to Sandrock.
Quatre: For confidentiality protection? For confidentiality? To maintain secrecy?
Prof H: No, thatís not the reason. Itís expected that anyone having considerable power should be prepared. No, thatís not why. Itís because those with power must be prepared to lose their lives. Thatís not the reason. Itís for the resolution that the one with power must bear.
Quatre: But I donít quite understand. But I donít quite understand. I donít quite understand.
Prof H: [Soft laugh] I guess not. That's fine for now. I guess not. You donít need to understand just yet. I didnít think so. But thatís alright for now.
A communication screen lights up, revealing the words "OPERATION M," followed by many lines of text.
Prof H: Hmm?
Quatre: An order from the organization? An order from the organization? Are they orders from the organization?
Prof H: Yeah. But forget this thing! Yeah. But forget this thing! Yes, but this is...
Professor H punches through the monitor with his fist, and rips the microphone from the console.
Prof H: Quatre. Fight as your heart tells you to. And use the self-detonating device only when you feel you have to. Quatre. Fight as your heart tells you. And use the self-detonation device only when you feel you must. Quatre, fight of your own will. If you feel the need to use the switch, then do so.
Quatre: Okay. Yes. I will.
Professor H watches from an observation window as Quatre moves through the low-gravity environment in the mobile suit bay towards Sandrock's cockpit.
Prof H: I can't take away his kindness and sincerity. Although this may end up being a crueler destiny for him than Operation Meteor. I cannot take away his kindness and purity. Although this may end up being a crueler destiny for him than Operation Meteor. We cannot take away his purity and kindness. It may mean that Quatre could face an even harsher fate than Operation Meteor...
Flashback ends, and Quatre is back on the bridge of the transport ship, staring forward.
Exterior of MO III; interior showing a large room full of Serpent mobile suits awaiting deployment, with Dekim standing on a platform looking over the room.
Dekim: My calculations are accurate after all. Unlike those of Quinze. My calculations are accurate. Unlike those of Quinze. My plans are perfect. Iím not like Quinze.
Exterior of X18999, followed by an interior view of the colony and the many buildings still under construction within. A helicopter is seen moving over the buildings, Relena and Mariemaia are within the helicopter, sitting opposite from each other.
Relena: Say that you rule the Earth Sphere--are you sure youíd be carrying on Treizeís, I mean, your fatherís will by going through with this? So what if you rule the Earth Sphere? Are you sure youíd be carrying on Treizeís, I mean, your fatherís will by doing this? Conquer Earth? Do you think youíre following Treizeís, no, your fatherís wishes by doing so?
Mariemaia: Youíve got it all wrong. I just want to be victorious. Youíve got it wrong. I just want to be victorious. Not quite so. I want to become a victor.
Relena: In that case, youíll have to decide for yourself the deeper meaning of what it is to fight. Then youíll have to decide on your own, the deeper meaning of fighting. Then is it not right that you should think for yourself what it means to fight?
Mariemaia: Miss Relena, donít make me repeat myself. I will not allow rude comments from you. Relena. Donít make me repeat myself. I wonít allow such rude comments. Miss Relena, please donít make me repeat myself. I will not tolerate rude remarks.
Heero and Duo are standing on the observation deck of a tall building on X18999 and Duo is following the progress of the helicopter through a pair of binoculars.
Duo: There's no way we canít catch that. Theyíre heading toward the Space Port. They seem to be in an awful rush for somebody going to Earth. We canít catch that. Theyíre heading toward the Space Port. They seem to be in a rush for people going to Earth. Thereís no way weíre gonna catch up. Probably heading for the spaceport. Theyíre sure in an awful hurry to get to Earth.
Heero: Thatís because theyíre planning to escape. Thatís because theyíre gonna escape. Theyíre most likely going to escape.
Duo: Escape? Then why did they even bother to take over this place? Escape? Then why did they bother to take over this place? Escape? Then why did they take this colony over in the first place?
Heero: HmmmÖ
Duo: Come on, Heero! Remember, she is Treizeís daughter after all. Come on! Remember, she is Treizeís daughter after all. Hey, wait a minute! Sheís supposed to be Treizeís daughter!
Heero: Iím more concerned about the man known as Dekim. I remember the name Dekim Barton from somewhere. Iím more concerned about the man known as Dekim. The name Dekim Barton rings a bellÖ Iím concerned about the man called Dekim. The name Dekim Barton rings a bell.
Duo: They canít be serious! Theyíre really planning to go ahead with Operation Meteor? They canít be serious! Theyíre planning to go ahead with Operation Meteor? Are they serious? Are they really trying to put the true Operation Meteor into action?
Heero: Yeah, but Iíll do all I can I can to stop them. Yeah, but Iíll do everything I can to stop them. Yes, but we wonít let it happen.
Exterior of the interplanetary transport ship, now showing a cannon-type device in an opening it its side.
Rashid: Master Quatre, weíll reach the resource disposal satellite in twenty seconds. Master Quatre, weíll reach the resources disposal satellite in twenty seconds. Master Quatre, weíll make contact with the satellite in twenty seconds.
Ext. Transport ship. Quatre is in his spacesuit and waiting near the cannon.
Quatre: All right then. All right. Okay.
Rashid: If it appears too dangerous, get back into the ship. If it looks too dangerous, return to the ship at once. If you think itís dangerous, please come straight back into the ship.
Quatre: Yeah, sure. He sights the satellite Itís here! Yeah. Itís here! Right. I see it.
The interplanetary transport ship moves into alignment with the satellite.
Rashid: Commencing countdown. Eight. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Zero! Commencing countdown. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Zero! Starting countdown. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three. Two. One. Zero!
Rashid fires the cannon at the resource satellite. A projectile point with a guide wire attached, impacts the satellite and the wire snaps tights between the two objects in space. Quatre rides the wire towards the satellite, but the interplanetary transport ship loses power for a moment, and the Quatre is thrown from the line.
Rashid: Master Quatre! Master Quatre! Master Quatre!
Quatre pinwheels through space, and then corrects his path and impacts with the side of the satellite as the Maganacs gasp in horror.
Quatre: I'm...Iím okay. Iíve safely arrived on the satellite. Take care, everyone. Say hi to the Goddess of Venus. I...Iím okay. Iíve managed to arrive on the satellite. Take care, everyone. Say hi to the Goddess on Venus. I...Iím alright. I made it. You all take care. My regards to the Goddess Venus!
The interplanetary transport ship pulls away from the resource satellite, and Quatre moves through the interior corridors on the way to the Gundams.
Quatre: The air remaining on the ship has kept the increase in temperatures to a minimum, but it's still hotter than the desert in here. The air remaining on the ship has minimized the rise in temperatures. But it is still hotter than a desert in here. The rise in temperature has been kept minimal due to the air left in here. But this is hotter than the desert...
Quatre reaches the Gundams and removes the helmet from his space suit and looks down at the four mobile suits.
Quatre: Hi. So we meet again. Hi. So we meet again. Hi, we meet again.
Exterior of MO III, followed by a view of Dekim on his control bridge.
Communications Officer: Preventers cruiser has changed its course. The Preventer cruiser has changed course. The Preventer cruiser has changed course.
Dekim: So theyíve realized whatís happening, but itís too late now. By the time they arrive at this natural resource satellite, the ruler of Earth Sphere will have changed already. Send out the Serpent troops now! Theyíve realized whatís happening. But itís too late! By the time they arrive at this natural resources satellite, the ruler of Earth Sphere will have changed already. Send out the Serpent troops at once! They finally noticed. But itís too late. By the time they reach this satellite, the ruler of Earth will have changed. Launch Serpent Unit!
Communications Officer: Yes, sir. Open the Earthís side gate at once! Yes, sir. Open the gate on the Earthís side. Roger. Earth facing gates, open.
A panel opens in the side of the satellite, and transport ships carrying Serpent mobile suits move towards Earth. A bright light is seem moving from Earth towards MO III.
Communications Officer: Unidentified Mobile Suit ahead! Unidentified Mobile Suit ahead! Unidentified Mobile Suit detected!
Dekim: What's that?! What?! What?!
Communications Officer: Checking the make of the Mobile Suit, Sir! Checking the model of the Mobile Suit. Verifying Mobile Suit type.
The Communications Officer brings up an image on the monitor
Communications Officer: Itís the Tallgeese! Itís the Tallgeese! It...itís the Tallgeese!
Dekim: It's Treize? Can't be. It must be Zechs. Treize? No. It must be Zechs. Treize... No, itís Zechs.
Communications Officer: The Tallgeese is coming straight for us! The Tallgeese is coming for us! Tallgeese, heading this way!
The Tallgeese III approaches MO III, destroying three of the Serpent transports in its path.
Int. Tallgeese III cockpit.
Zechs: Great. I read their actions perfectly. I guess there still is a place for someone who just canít get used to peace. My hunch was correct. I guess thereís still a place for a man who canít get used to peace. My guess was right. It seems a man not used to peace is of some use.
Int. MO III control bridge.
Communications Officer: The Serpent suits canít fight back wearing their atmosphere-shielding devices! The Serpents suits canít fight back wearing their atmospheric shielding devices! The Serpents canít attack because of their atmospheric shielding!
Second Officer: Shall we have them take off the devices? Should they remove them? Should we detach the shielding?
Dekim: There's no need for that. No need. That isnít necessary.
Zechs' image shows up on the control bridge monitor, and Zechs addresses Dekim.
Zechs: This is Preventer Wind, calling. This is Preventer Wind. This is Preventer Wind.
Dekim: Zechs Merquise! I thought you were dead. Zechs Merquise! I thought you were dead. Zechs Merquise, I didnít think you were still alive.
Zechs: That's right, I was. But, I find that I cannot quietly sleep in my grave while Treizeís spirit is still roaming among us. I had heard about you from Quinze. Dekim Barton, surrender and disarm yourselves at once! I was. But, I find that I canít sleep in my grave while Treizeís spirit is still roaming around. I heard about you from Quinze, Dekim Barton. Surrender and disarm yourselves at once! I was dead. But I canít sleep quietly in my coffin while the ghost of Treize is roaming around. I heard about you from Quinze. Dekim Barton, disarm and surrender immediately!
Dekim: I dare you to shoot us down. Shoot us if you dare. Shoot, if you dare.
Zechs: You do? What? What?
Dekim: If you fire at us, youíll quickly realize that these Serpents are not the only card we're playing! If you fire at us, youíll quickly realize that these Serpents arenít our last resort. If you do, youíll find out the hard way that the Serpent Unit isnít our only secret card.
Zechs: Damn you! Damn you! You...!
Dekim: Did Quinze not tell you? I was the one who first created Operation Meteor. Didnít Quinze tell you? I was the one who created Operation Meteor. Didnít Quinze tell you? Iím the one who planned Operation Meteor.
Zechs: What? X-18999... X-18999... X...X18999...
Dekim: Thatís right. We can drop that colony any time we wish. If you continue to insist on getting in our way, we will drop X-18999 onto Earth. Thatís right. We can drop that colony any time we wish. If you continue to insist on interfering, we will drop X18999 onto Earth. Thatís right. We can drop the colony at any time. If you interfere any further, we will drop X18999 on Earth.
Zechs makes a noise of frustration.
Zechs: Damn!
Dekim: You will surrender! Unlike Quinze, I have no intention of inviting you in to become our leader. But Iíll be happy to consider you as a soldier under Mariemaia. Drop your weapons and surrender! Unlike Quinze, I have no intention of inviting you to be our leader. But Iíll consider you as a soldier under Mariemaia. Drop your weapons and surrender. Unlike Quinze, I have no intention of welcoming you as a leader... But Iíll consider it if you want to become a soldier for our Miss Mariemaia.
MO III continues to deploy the Serpent transport ships, and they proceed uncontested towards Earth. Relena and Mariemaia fly to Earth in a shuttle, and Wufei, piloting Alton, flies alongside the shuttle as protection.
Int. Altron's cockpit.
Wufei: Now then, Earth. Show me your true idea of justice. Now, Earth. Show me what your true idea of justice is. Earth, show me what true justice is!
Int. Shuttle with Relena and Mariemaia.
Relena: Drop the colony onto Earth? Drop the colony onto Earth?! Drop a colony on Earth!
Relena reaches over and shakes Mariemaia.
Relena: Stop this at once. Thereís no reason for doing this! Stop this at once. Thereís no reason to do that! Stop it immediately. You mustnít do such a thing!
Mariemaia removes Relena's hand.
Mariemaia: Miss Relena, please try to calm down. There should be no reason for that, so long as all of mankind will bow before me. Relena. Please calm down. I wonít need to do this. So long as all of mankind bows before me. Miss Relena, please calm down. It will not be necessary if the whole of humanity kneels down before me.
Relena: Do you really believe the people will bow before you? Do you really believe the people will bow before you? Do you really think you can do such a thing?
Mariemaia: I know they will, because in your role as the former Queen Relena, you've entrusted me now with the highest possible position of the Earth Sphere. Yes, because in your role as the former Queen Relena, you entrusted me with the highest position of the Earth Sphere. It will be possible, if the former leader of the World Nation, Queen Relena offers me the highest position in the Earth districts.
Relena: What do you mean? What do you mean? What?!
Mariemaia: As the Vice Foreign Minister, you are very well trusted by the colonies. You have a much greater level of influential power over the people than even you yourself realize. As the Vice Foreign Minister, youíre trusted by the colonies. You have a much greater level of influential power over the people than even you realize yourself. As Vice Minister, the Colonies have trust in you. Your authority has much more influence than you think.
Relena: And thatís the reason why you abducted me. And thatís why you abducted me. Thatís why you took me...
Mariemaia: Now youíve got the picture. Now youíve got the picture. That is correct.
Act 3
Int. Resources Satellite. At the control panel of the satellite.
Quatre: The temperature in here is above eighty degrees. Iíll just think of it as a big sauna.  The temperature in here is over eighty degrees. Iíll just have to think of it as a big sauna. The mass temperature is over 80C. I just have to imagine itís a sauna...
Quatre wipes his face and returns his attention to the console, starting the equipment on the satellite, and then propelling himself down the corridor and shutting himself in a compartment.
Quatre: This had better work. This better work.
He opens a compartment on the arm of his spacesuit and prepares to detonate the explosives he's set to change the direction of the satellite, and presses the button.
Quatre: Five, fourÖ Five, four, 5, 4,
And tracks the change in the trajectory of the satellite, setting off a second explosion when it reaches the angle he's looking for.
Quatre: This angle should take it straight in Earth's direction... three... 3...
He moves out of the compartment and back into the corridor.
Quatre: Ah, wellÖ It should get a little bit cooler now. It should get a bit cooler now. At least it will be a bit cooler.
Inside X18999, Mariemaia's soldiers run through a corridor, yelling and trying to get ahead of a series of explosions, Heero and Duo, both carrying machine guns, turn the corner and run down the hallway together, only to be halted by a number of Mariemaia's soldiers who return their gunfire; Heero and Duo hold off the soldiers with a combination of grenades and gunfire, and reach the control room access door.
Trowa: Operation Meteor. Thatís what they called Gundamsí descent to Earth. But it was initially something completely different. The rotation of a colony is increased. The balancing mechanism is then destroyed at Lagrange point, throwing the colony toward Earth. As this causes chaos on Earth, the Gundams are sent to gain mastery. Thatís the general outline of the original Operation Meteor. Operation Meteor. Thatís what they called Gundamsí descent to Earth. But it was initially something completely different. The rotation of a colony is increased. Then the balancing mechanism is destroyed at Lagrange, hurling the colony toward Earth. As this causes chaos, on Earth, the Gundams are sent to take over. Thatís the general outline of the original Operation Meteor. Operation Meteor. Thatís what we called the Gundam to Earth drop plan... But it was originally something completely different. It was to increase a Colonyís rotation speed and destroy the equilibrium at a Lagrange point, hence dropping it on Earth. With the Earth in chaos, the Gundams attack and take over. That was the entire plan of the original Operation Meteor.
Int. X18999. The control room door slides open, revealing a number of Mariemaia's soldiers lying on the floor, and Trowa sitting alone at the primary control panel.
Duo: Huh?
Trowa: What took you so long? What kept you? What kept you?
Duo: How about that. Our objectives ended up being the same after all. How about that. Our objectives ended up being the same after all. Well, well. Looks like our goal is the same.
Trowa: Give me a hand. Theyíve got quite an extensive lock on the system. Itís taking time to re-establish the colonyís stability control. Give me a hand. Theyíve got a complex lock on the system. Itís taking time to restore the colonyís stability control. I need help. The system is locked, and Iím having trouble restoring the Colonyís safety levels.
Duo: Whatever you say. Sure. Right, right.
Heero and Duo both sit at access terminals and work with Trowa to gain control of the system.
Heero: Weíd better hurry. Theyíve already started sending in troops to Earth. Weíd better hurry. Looks like theyíve started sending in troops to Earth. Weíd better hurry. They appear to have started the main plan.
Duo: I canít seem to delete the final lock. Weíll have to reconnect the lines directly. I canít seem to break the final lock. Weíll have to reconnect the lines directly. Canít unlock the final key. Have to connect the circuits direct.
Trowa: Many friends that I worked with are on this colony. As soon as I realized that Dekimís plans were really the original Operation Meteor, this is all I could think of to stop him. But itís just taken me way too much time to get here. Many friends that Iíve worked with are on this colony. When I realized Dekimís plans were really the original Operation Meteor, this was the only way I could think of to stop him. But itís taken me way too long to get here. Iíve got important colleagues on this colony. When I realized Dekimís goal was to implement the original Operation Meteor... This was the only method I could think of. But itís taken me too long to get here.
Duo: How about Wufei? Did he just become a Mariemaia soldier with the idea of blocking their plans? What about Wufei? Did he become Mariemaiaís soldier just to get their plans? What about Wufei? Did he become her soldier to prevent the mission?
Heero: No, he hates such indirect approaches. No, he hates roundabout approaches. He doesnít do things in such a round about way.
Trowa: Okay, weíre done. Okay, weíre done. Alright, itís done.
Duo makes a call to the Preventer Shuttle.
Duo: This is Duo. This is Duo. This is Duo.
Int. Preventer shuttle: Noin and Sally are both looking at the monitor.
Sally: Are you positive about that? Are you absolutely sure?! Is that true?
Noin: You guys stopped Operation Meteor? You guys stopped Operation Meteor?! Youíve prevented Operation Meteor.
Ext. MO III, Zechs powers up the Tallgeese III's mega cannon, and fires at MO III.
Zechs: This is Wind. I'm destroying MO-III! This is Wind. Destroying MO-3! This is Wind. Destroying MO-3!
MO III explodes into a fireball, but Dekim's personal shuttle escapes just in time and heads to Earth.
Dekim: You were a little late. See you again. You were late! See you again! You were too late. We shall meet again.
Tallgeese III hovers in space next to the fireball that used to be MO III, unable to pursue a craft moving that fast.
Int. Control room of X18999.
Trowa: We were too late. We were too late. We didnít make it.
Heero: Donít worry about it. At least we were able to save the colony. Donít worry about it. At least we were able to save the colony. Donít worry. Itís enough that we saved the colony.
MM Soldier: [from the other side of the control room door] We have you completely surrounded. Come out with your hands up. We have you completely surrounded. Come out with your hands up. Youíre completely surrounded, come out quietly!
Trowa: Itís over. Itís over. Then itís over.
Duo: Not necessarily. I got some mail from Quatre. Not necessarily. I got some mail from Quatre. No, not quite. Weíve got mail from Quatre.
Duo brings up the recorded message on the video monitor.
Quatre: Hello, this is Quatre. I have just redirected the resources disposal satellite towards the Earth. It should reach the Earthís orbit within the next twenty-four hours. Quatre here. Iíve just redirected the resources disposal satellite toward Earth. It should reach the Earthís orbit within twenty-four hours. This is Quatre. Iíve just launched the scrap satellite toward Earth. It will reach Earthís orbit within 24 hours.
Heero: Hey Duo, send Quatre a message. Tell him to send Wing Zero in the HES-88 direction. Duo, send Quatre a message. Tell him to send Wing Zero in the HES-88 direction. Duo, send Quatre a message. Tell him to launch Wing Zero in the direction of AGS88.
Duo: You kidding? You kidding?! What?!
Heero: Iíll pick up Wing Zero in space. Itíll save time that way. Iíll pick up Wing Zero in space. Itíll save time that way. Iíll receive Wing Zero in space. Itís quicker if I go and meet it.
MM Soldier: Open the door! Open it now! Open the door! Open up! Hey, open up! Open up!
Trowa: Heero, why don't you take the shuttle in the fourth hanger. You can take the shuttle in the fourth hanger. Thereís a shuttle in hanger 4 you can use.
Heero: Duo, I have another favor to ask you. Duo, I have another favor. Duo, I have one more favor.
Duo walks over to where Heero and Trowa are standing.
Duo: What's the matter, huh? You're suddenly asking me all these favors. Thatís not like you. Suddenly asking me all these favors. This is extraordinary. So many favors for you.
Heero: Hit me, now! Hit me! Hit me.
Duo: [surprised] What? Have you gone crazy?! Have you gone crazy?! What did you say?!
MM Soldier: Never mind. Tear down the door! Never mind. Tear down the door! Force this door open!
Heero: Hurry up! Hurry up! Hurry up.
Duo: Well, you asked for it. Iíll give you my best punch! Well, you asked for it. Iíll give you my best punch! O...Okay. Iím gonna go for it.
Duo cracks his knuckles and throws a punch at Heero's face, and Heero counters with an upward blow to Duo's solar plexus, leaving Duo gasping.
Duo: WhyÖ whyÖ why in theÖ Why in theÖ What...the...
Heero: For our own good. Thatís one for one. For our own good. Thatís one for one. No hard feelings. One for one.
Heero shifts Duo's unconscious body to Trowa.
Heero: Heís all yours, now. Heís all yours. Iíll leave it to you.
Trowa: Right. Right. Right.
Heero lies down on the floor in front of Trowa, feigning unconsciousness as Mariemaia's soldiers force the door to the room open.
Trowa: Donít worry. Iíve already taken care of them. But they prevented the colonyís instability. Donít worry. Iíve taken care of them. But they prevented the colonyís instability. Donít worry, Iíve got them... Although theyíve prevented the mission.
Mariemaia's Soldiers: Hold it! Freeze! Stop there! Stop! Freeze! Wait! Stop! Hold it! Stop!
Tallgeese III floats above the glow of the Earth's atmosphere amid the wreckage of MO-III, and is approached by a Preventer shuttle piloted by Noin.
Noin: Ah, ZechsÖ Zechs...
Zechs turns a page in the book he is reading, and glances up at the communication monitor as it picks up an incoming signal.
Zechs: Is that you, Noin? Is that you, Noin?
Noin: Iíve come to pick you up, Zechs. I've come to pick you up.
Zechs: Thanks. So Noin, how have you been doing? Thanks. Noin, how have you been?  
Noin: Good. Zechs, itís been one year and two days. Good. Zechs, it's been one year and two days.  
Earth, Brussels: People look to the sky as MO III burns up in a shower of falling stars against the night.

  As long as we can look each other in the eye and understand
People will go on freely and without hesitation
When weíve overcome our mistakes, we can be truly kind
You and I have discovered
A great strength that we know as love
I believe your love, shivering
With a kiss I make a silent wish
Promise me this,
Please never forget
You exist in me, and I in you
I believe your dreams, my growing feelings for you
I change this longing to prayers for you
As long as we can look each other in the eye and understand
People will go on freely and without hesitation

With a kiss I make a silent wish
Promise me this,
Please never forget
You exist in me, and I in you
I believe your dreams, my growing feelings for you

An alert tone beeps and Heero looks up at the approaching Wing Zero.
Heero: Itís here. It's here. It's here.
  If only you could hear this heartbeat of mine.
Beating so strong and hard
So far away
If only you could hear this heartbeat of mine.
Beating so strong and hard
So far away
 
Heero flies the shuttle to meet up with Wing Zero, still encased it its protective wings. Heero abandons the shuttle and falls through space, landing and rolling down the surface of his Gundam until he manages to catch and hold on to the surface.
Interior of Wing Zero: Heero, having shed his spacesuit, powers up his Gundam, disengages the propulsion unit, and Wing Zero emerges from its protective canopy and heads towards Earth.
  Nothing is gained, and no one stays
Let me offer to the babyís small hand
This genuine throbbing of my heart
We all want to be held in the priceless warmth forever
Like the warmth of the sunlight
As it shines through the forest
I believe your love, the will to never give up
(song fades)

Earth, Brussels, Presidential Residence: Relena looks to the sky.
Relena: Heero... Heero... Heero...
The building shudders and begins to descend into the ground as Relena watches the passage of metal walls as they slide past her window. The entire building is lowered into the ground on a platform supported by six massive hydraulic columns, and a number of metal panels slide over the space above the building, securing it from attack.
Int. Brussels Presidential Residence control center.
MM Soldier: Closing Gate 1, closing Gate 2. Closing Gates 3 and 4. Closing Gates 5 and 6. Brussels Presidential Residence blockade complete. Closing Gate 1, closing Gate 2. Closing Gates 3 and 4. Closing Gates 5 and 6. Brussels Presidential Residence blockade complete! Gate 1 closed. Gate 2 closed. Gates 3 and 4 closed. Gates 5 and 6 closed. Brussels Presidential Palace, closure is complete.
Int. Brussels Presidential Residence control center. In the room with Relena.
Mariemaia: My castle is now completely protected. Donít you find it strange? Why should a shelter such as this be necessary in such a peaceful world with no weapons? History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever. However, history will change upon the day of my coronation. The instant this year comes to an end, I will be on the top of the Earth Sphere, and the dawn of a new age will arrive. I will rule the world. My castle is now completely protected. Don't you find it strange? Why should a shelter such as this be necessary in a peaceful world with no weapons? History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever. However, history will change with my coronation. The instant the year After Colony 196 ends, I will be on top of the Earth Sphere. And a new age will arrive. Now my castle is ready. Don't you think it's strange that you'd need a shelter like this in a peaceful world with no weapons? You could say history is like an endless waltz. The three measures of war, peace and revolution continue in an endless cycle. But with my coronation, history will change. After Colony year 196. By the end of this year, I will be the most prominent figure in the United World Nation. A new era will begin.
Altron is floating in space above Earth, Wufei sleeps in the cockpit.
Flashback to Colony A--at the L5 point, home of the Long Clan. Wufei is arguing with the Clan elders.
Wufei: Youíre dropping this colony onto Earth?! Youíre nuts! I will be piloting Nataku to get rid of the evils of the universe!! You're dropping this colony onto Earth?! Youíre nuts! Iím piloting Nataku to wipe out the evils of the universe!! You're going to drop this colony on Earth?! You can't be serious! The reason I use Nataku is to defeat the evil in this world!
Clan Member 1: The Alliance has already decided to dispose of this colony. The Alliance has already decided to dispose of this colonyÖ it would be better to go ahead with Operation Meteor. The Federation has notified us of this colony's disposal. Rather than being silently disposed of, it would be of better use in Operation Meteor.
Clan Member 2: Rather than watch as it gets destroyed, it would be more worthwhile to go ahead with Operation Meteor.    
Wufei: All we need to do is to defeat the enemies that must be defeated! Argh! All we need to do is defeat the necessary enemies! I'll destroy all the evil, fair and square!  
Wufei runs from the room and is next seen powering up Shenlong.
Wufei: Iíll will rid the Earth of all evil, once and for all! There won't be a problem if we defeat the enemy! I'll defeat evil on an equal footing!  
Flashback ends, and Wufei awakes to the sight of the approaching Wing Zero.
Wufei: There he is. He's here.
Altron launches itself towards Wing Zero and attacks the other Gundam.
Wufei: I will not allow you to go to Earth! I wonít let you go to Earth! I can't let you reach Earth!
Heero: Is this what you interpret as justice? Is this what you interpret as justice? Is this your version of justice?
Wufei: I need to determine for myself whether or not peace at the expense of lives can really be defined as peace! And I will become evil itself to find out! Humanity did not change. Although all enemies were defeated, Earth did not change one bit! I need to determine myself whether or not peace at the expense of peopleís lives can be defined as peace! And I will become evil itself to find out! Humanity didnít change. All enemies were defeated, but Earth didn't change one bit! I just want to know if peace built on sacrifice is truly just? For that, I will become evil. Earth hasn't changed. Defeating the enemy didn't change Earth at all!
Wufei continues to fight Heero above Earth's atmosphere.
X-18999, colony interior, a tall building, Hotel Norar; Sally Po, in the uniform of Mariemaia's Army, armed and wearing a gas mask, moves though the hallways of the hotel amid the fallen bodies of Mariemaia's soldiers. She locates the area where MMA is holding the some of the residents of the colony under armed guard, and tosses some gas canisters into the area, rendering the guards unconscious.
Soldier: Huh? Huh?
Soldier 2: Whatís wrong? Hey, whatís this smoke? What's wrong? Hey, what's this smoke?!  
Soldier 3: What is it? What is it?
The guards groan as the smoke fills the hall, and then they begin to fall unconscious. Sally catches the last guard as he falls, and settles him on the ground.
Sally: Iím sorry. I need to put you to sleep just for a moment. I'm sorry. l need to put you to sleep just for a bit.  
Sally opens the door to the holding room, and removes her gas mask.
Hostage: Huh? Huh?
Sally: Are you all okay? l can see you're all okay.
The hostages, including Catherine Bloom and the manager at Trowa's circus, all nod in agreement.
A holding cell on X18999, Duo is lying on his side, hands cuffed together in front of him, he reaches into the hair behind his ear and retrieves a small black object (presumably a small explosive charge).
Duo: Let's seeÖ Quatre should be here shortly... Well, now. Quatre should be here any time. Well, I suppose it's about time for Quatre to arrive.
Ext. Holding cell. An explosion is heard from within the cell.
Soldier 1: Huh? What the...? What the...?
Soldier 2: What the...? Here I come! Here I come!
Duo kicks the cell door on top of the two guards stationed outside of it, and runs for the shuttle bay.
Alarms sound and MMA fires at Duo as he sprints across the shuttle bay and leaps up into the waiting shuttle.
Duo: Yeee ha!
Duo enters the cockpit and finds Trowa sitting at the controls.
Duo: Hey! You couldíve at least come to help me! Thereís nothing wrong with helping out a friend in need now, is there? Hey, You couldíve at least come to help me! Thereís nothing wrong with helping out a friend in need. That was so kind of you. I don't think it would've hurt to have come and helped me.
Trowa: I wasnít waiting for you; I've been waiting here for someone else. I wasn't waiting for you. But for someone else. I wasn't waiting for you. It's the other one.
Duo: Huh? Huh? Huh?
Sally walks up to the control bridge of the shuttle where Trowa and Duo are waiting.
Sally: Sorry to keep you!. All hostages have been rescued! Sorry to keep you!. All hostages on this colony have been rescued! Thanks for waiting. All the colony's hostages have been rescued.
Trowa: Okay, letís go. Okay, Letís go. Then we'll leave.
Duo: Oh, I see. So this is who you meant. I see. So this is what you meant. Okay, okay, I get the point.
Sally rests her hand on Duo's shoulder.
Sally: Well thank you, Duo. You were kind enough to leave me plenty of good treats. Thank you, Duo. You were kind enough to leave me plenty of good treats. Thanks, Duo. You left some cake for us.
Duo: If youíre joking, thatís cruel. But if youíre being sarcastic, thatís even worse! If youíre joking, thatís cruel. But if youíre being sarcastic, thatís even worse! If that was a joke, it sucked. But if you were being sarcastic, it was even worse.
The shuttle launches towards Earth as MM's soldiers draw back from the exhaust of the engines.
Wufei and Heero continue to attack each other with their Gundams.
Heero: The more you fight, the more sacrifice for peace becomes a waste. You must have realized that. The war we fought is over! The more you fight, the more sacrifices for peace become a waste. You mustíve realized that. The war we fought is over! The more you fight, the more the sacrifices for this peace are wasted. You should know that. Our war is over.
Wufei: So are you saying that soldiers who know nothing but how to fight get discarded? So we don't need warriors? Do soldiers who know nothing but battle get tossed aside? So that's why you don't need warriors? You're just going to disregard the soldiers who lived only to fight?
Heero: Soldiers have fought to attain a sense of peace! Believe in the world we live in today! Soldiers have fought to attain a sense of peace! Believe in the world we live in! Didn't the soldiers fight for peace? Try to believe in the world around us now!
Wufei: Iím acting for the people who were used as weapons! Iím fighting on behalf of all soldiers, including yourself! Iím acting for the people who were used as weapons! I'm fighting for all soldiers, including you! I speak for all the soldiers who were used as weapons! I'm fighting for every soldier, including you!
The fight continues, even as the two mobile suits begin to fall through Earth's atmosphere.
Heero: Ah, Wufei. Wufei. Wufei...
Wufei: Right now you and I are fighting like this. Isn't it true that you feel fulfilled as I do, whenever youíre engaged in a fight? You and I are fighting like this. Donít you feel fulfilled as I do, when youíre fighting? You and I are fighting! Aren't we fulfilled only when we fight?!
Heero: Huh?
Wufei: You and I are the same! We are only able to acknowledge our existence in the battlefield! You and I are the same! We can only acknowledge our existence on the battlefield! You and I are the same! We can only find the meaning of our existence on the battlefield!
Heero: Just remember, Wufei, Treize is dead! You have already defeated him! Just remember, Wufei, Treize is dead! Wufei, Treize is no longer here! You defeated him!
Wufei: Youíre wrong! I still continue to fight him, even now! You're wrong! I still fight him, even now! You're wrong! I'm still fighting him!
On Earth in the city Brussels outside of the Presidential Residence: Zechs, in the Tallgeese III, and Noin, in the white Taurus mobile suit, fight against the Serpent mobile suits of Mariemaia's Army.
Noin: Zechs. The Brussels Presidential Residence is shield protected! We canít even get to it! Zechs. The Brussels Presidential Residence is shielded! We canít get to it! Zechs, Brussels Presidential Palace has set up its shelter shield. It's impossible to break though.
Zechs: I realize that! But unless I do what I can, there's no one who is going to stand against them! I realize that! But unless I do what I can, no one will stand against them! I know it's impossible, but if we don't do it, no one will stand up to her.
Noin: Who are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for?
Zechs: For those who hope for peace. If people allow Mariemaia to do as she wishes, theyíll end up giving birth to a second Milliardo Peacecraft. Noin, you really donít have to stick around with me. For those who hope for peace. If people allow Mariemaia to do as she wishes, theyíll create a second Milliardo Peacecraft. Noin. You don't have to stick by me. The people who want peace. If Earth is going over to Mariemaia, another Milliard Peacecraft will be born! Noin, you don't have to put up with me.
Noin: Zechs, I told you a year ago that I will never leave your side. Iíve waited all of this time and I simply can't wait any longer. Zechs. I told you a year ago that I would never leave your side. I've waited all this time. I donít want to wait any more. No. I told you a year ago. I won't leave your side. I've been waiting so long, I'm not going to wait anymore.
Zechs: Understood. Understood. Alright.
Wing Zero and Altron successfully penetrate the atmosphere, and Wing Zero opens its wings to slow its rate of descent, as Altron releases and then quickly discards a parachute before re-engaging in combat with Wing Zero.
Wufei: I do not accept to Relena Peacecraftís ways. Her belief that peace is attained by throwing away weapons and confining soldiers is wrong! I do not consent to Relena Peacecraftís ways. Her belief that peace comes from discarding weapons and confining soldiers is wrong! I don't approve of Relena Peacecraft. It's wrong to think you can achieve peace by just throwing away the weapons and locking up the soldiers.
Heero: So thatís why youíre allowing Mariemaiaís autocracy?! So thatís why youíre allowing Mariemaiaís autocracy?! Is that why we should allow Mariemaia to be a dictator?
Wufei: Thatís where the souls of those who fight gather! Thatís where the souls of the soldiers are congregated! It will be something for the soldiers to go by and....
Heero: That may be okay for now, but Mariemaia will end up repeating history! The history full of miserable battles. Unless we stop this process now, more soldiers like ourselves will become necessary. If that happens, history will continue to repeat itself. Wufei, tell me. How many more people must we kill? That may be okay for now. But Mariemaia will end up repeating history. A history full of miserable wars. Unless we stop this process now, more soldiers like ourselves will become necessary. If that happens, a history of tragedy will keep repeating itself. Wufei, tell me. How many more people must we kill? That may be fine for now, but she's only repeating history. The sad and miserable history of war! If we don't stop it now, they'll need soldiers like us again! The tragedy called history will just be repeated. Wufei, tell me. How many more people do we have to kill?
Heero has brief flashback visions of the time when he accidentally caused the death of the young girl and her puppy.
Heero: How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog? How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog? How many more times do I have to kill that girl and her puppy...?
Wing Zero is now sparking with damage about the head, and Heero, sitting slack in the control chair, suddenly disengages from combat with Wufei and drops Wing Zero into the ocean below.
Wufei: Huh?
Heero: Zero will not tell me anything. Tell me, Wufei! Zero wonít tell me anything. Tell me, Wufei! Zero never gave me an answer. Tell me, Wufei.
Wufei has brief flashback visions of the time when his colony self-destructed, and then drops altitude until Altron hovers over the place where Wing Zero dropped below the water.
Wufei: Would an incident like that have to be repeated again? Would an event like that have to be repeated? Are you telling me that everything is going to be repeated?
 Act 4
Ext. Space. In the resource satellite that stored the four Gundams, now smaller and pitted with damage and positioned above Earth. Sandrock, Deathscythe, and Heavyarms are all activated and awaiting the descent to Earth.
Quatre: Are you both ready to go? Are you both ready to go? Are you both ready?
Duo: Yeah, any time you are! Yeah, any time you are! Yeah, any time!
Trowa: This is what Operation Meteor should be. This is what Operation Meteor should be. This is how Operation Meteor should have been carried out.
Quatre: Letís go now! Let's go! Let's go!
Sandrock slices open with bay door with two strikes of its shotels and the three Gundams fly through the atmosphere and towards Brussels.
Int. In the control center of the Presidential Residence: a dozen soldiers of MMA are sitting at control consoles, presided over by Dekim, Mariemaia, and Relena.
Soldier: Tallgeese and Taurus are now past our Point D Number three  defenses! Tallgeese and Taurus are past our Point D number 3 defenses! Tallgeese and Taurus have passed defense line 3, point D!
Dekim: What can they do with only two suits? Send our counterattack troops to Point D! What can they do with only two suits?! Send our remaining assault troops to point D! What can those two do? Send a combat unit in that area to point D!
Soldier: Yes, Sir! Yes, Sir! Roger.
Mariemaia: It's beginning to look like a sibling reunion will be next to impossible this time. Looks like a sibling reunion will be difficult this time. What a shame. I don't think you'll be able to meet your brother.
Ext. Estate house. A television broadcast of the mobile suit battle taking place in Brussels.
Dekim: We are facing fools that are hopelessly retaliating against the new order. Consider how much meaning the lives that are likely to be lost will have. We are facing fools that are hopelessly rebelling against the new order. Consider the significance of the lives that will be lost There are fools who still resist our newly found law and order. You must all think of the true meaning of the blood that is going to be spilled.
Int. Estate house. A little girl sits next to her grandfather and clutches a teddy bear to her chest as they watch the broadcast together.
Little Girl: Grandpa. I thought there weren't going to be any more wars? Grandpa. I thought there wouldnít be any more wars. Grandpa, I thought we weren't going to fight anymore.
Grandfather: I know. That's right. That's right.
Little Girl: Then why are those people still having a war? Then why are those people still having a war? Then why are those people fighting?
Grandfather: Unfortunately, dear, not everybody in this world is as reasonable as you are. [thinks] But in fact, the people are too reasonable. There are too few people who will retaliate against Mariemaia. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is as sensible as you. But in fact, people are too sensible. Too few people are retaliating against Mariemaia. The world isn't made of good, understanding girls like you. But the public is too understanding. There are far too few people who will stand up to Mariemaia.
In a control room with many video monitors and a number of MMA soldiers dispatched and unconscious on the floor (perhaps the television broadcasting station?).
Lady Une: Does she believe this is Treizeís ideal? She doesnít realize sheís merely a puppet controlled by Dekim. Does she believe this is Treize's ideal? She doesnít realize sheís merely Dekimís puppet. This is Treize's ideal? They don't even realize that Dekim is manipulating them.
On the streets of Brussels, Zechs and Noin continue to fight against the Serpent troops of MMA. They are pressed back by the sheer number of Serpent suits.
The Tallgeese III leaps over a Serpent mobile suit, and then drops behind it, impaling it on a beam sword.
Serpent Pilot: Huh?
The Tallgeese and the white Taurus continue to take damage from the overwhelming number of Serpent mobile suits.
Zechs: We've reached our limit. This is it. I...Is this it...?
Noin: Iím not saying any good-byes yet, Zechs! I'm not saying any good-byes yet, Zechs! I'm not saying goodbye, Zechs!
Zechs: Of course not, Noin! Of course not! Naturally!
The front line of Serpents suddenly drops to the groundÖ
Zechs: Huh?
Öand Gundam Sandrock is revealed, shotels extended.
Quatre: Iím glad we werenít too late. Iím glad we werenít too late. Looks like we've arrived in time.
Noin: Quatre! Quatre?! Quatre!
Sandrock cuts more Serpents apart, and the pilots from MMA scramble from the wreckage of their mobile suits. Quatre slides his goggles up to rest on his forehead and addresses Zechs and Noin.
Quatre: You two are truly impressive. Youíve fought this many without killing one soldier. You two are truly impressive. Youíve fought this many without killing one soldier. You two are amazing. All this fighting and not a single soldier killed.
Noin: Iíd be glad even if we could teach these people something. Iíd be glad if we could teach these people something. I'm glad that we can be an example for you.
One of the Serpent mobile suits looks up at the sky, and sees Deathscythe Hell silhouetted against the full moon. Deathscythe lands, and neatly slices off the head components of the three nearest Serpent mobile suits.
Duo: Letís only take the weapons and war itself along with us to hell! Letís take the weapons and war itself with us to hell! Let's make it so the only thing we're taking to hell are the weapons of war!
Heavyarms makes its entrance into the melee with an acrobatic leap into a group of Serpent mobile suits, and then opens fire, leveling MMAs.
Trowa: Around two hundred and fifty left. Thatís fifty suits each. If we're just getting rid of the mobile suits, I'm sure we'll be able to manage it. About two hundred and fifty left. That's fifty suits each. If thatís all, then we should be able to manage. Two hundred and fifty left. That's fifty each. If thatís all the Mobile Suits, we should make it.
A crowd of people stand in an open city plaza, all looking up at an aerial view of the mobile suit fight within the city of Brussels, close-up views of the Gundams are presented as well.
People: [many sounds of surprise] Gundams?! Gundams!
From the control room of the Presidential Residence, Relena and Mariemaia sit in two chairs positioned on a dais at the back of the room; Dekim and the monitoring stations take up the center portion of the area, and a view of the mobile suit battle is displayed on the main video monitor in the front of the room.
Dekim: How much longer do those kids intend to retaliate against me? How much longer will those punks retaliate against me?! Those brats! How long do they plan to resist?
Mariemaia: Even if they did destroy the mobile suits, thereís no way they can break through this shelter. What theyíre doing is meaningless. Even if they did destroy the Mobile Suits, thereís no way they can break into this shelter. What theyíre doing is meaningless. Even if they destroy the Mobile Suits, they can't reach this shelter. Their resistance is futile.
Relena slowly begins to stand up.
Relena: HmmÖ Iíve been running. Iíve beenÖ I...
Mariemaia: Whatís the matter, Miss Relena? Whatís wrong, Relena? What is it, Miss Relena?
Relena continues to stand as she watches the video monitor in the front of the room.
Relena: Iíve beenÖ Iíve been running from the truth. Iíve beenÖ Iíve been running away from the truth. I... I was running away.
Mariemaia: Huh?
Relena leaves her position next to Mariemaia and runs over to one of the work stations. She shoves the MMA soldier out of the way and seizes control of the microphone.
MMA Communications Officer: Huh?    
Relena: Everybody! Do not fear the image youíre watching. Peace is not something that is given to you. Each person must... People! Do not fear the broadcast youíre watching. Peace is not something that is handed to you. Each person must... People, you must not be afraid of what you see. Peace is not something that someone gives to you. It is something...
City plaza: The broadcast is interrupted first by the voice of Relena Darlian, then by a brief glimpse of her image before she is cut off, and static appears on the main screen in the city plaza.
Man 1: Hey, wasnít thatÖ! Hey, wasnít thatÖ!
Man 2: That was Queen Relena! That was Queen Relena! That was Queen Relena...
Man 3: What's going on?
In the Presidential Residence, Relena pauses in the circle of four drawn pistols aimed at her.
Dekim: Itís still much too early for your appearance to the people, Miss Former Queen. Itís still much to early for your appearance to the people... Former Queen. Your appearance is yet to come, Your Majesty.
Mariemaia: Are you guiding the public to battle? Aren't those actions against your policies of Total Pacifism? Are you guiding the public to battle? Doesnít that go against your Total Peace Policies?! Are you going to lead the people into war? Is that not against your total peace policy?!
Relena: I no longer consider myself a Peacecraft. What is needed now are the hearts that will hope for a peaceful world, and not a principle or an assertion. I am no longer a Peacecraft. What is needed now is not a principle or an assertion. But the heart to hope for peace. I am not Peacecraft. It is not policy or assertion we need now, but the desire for peace!
Back in the city plaza, a large crowd has gathered to watch the video monitor.
Crowd: [overlapping voices, both concerned and fearful] What? What was that? It doesn't make any sense! What was sheÖ?    
Dorothy: You people just going to continue sitting on your butts? Are you people just going keep sitting on your butts?  
The crowd turns to see who is insulting them, and Dorothy Catalonia is standing by herself back from the crowd.
Man 1: What?
Dorothy: Is Mariemaia the master you have all been waiting for? Come on, why don't you wag your tails and run to her. Mariemaia is the master you have all been waiting for. Come on, wag your tails and run to her.  
Man 1: Hey! You comparing us to dogs? Hey! Are you comparing us to dogs?!
Dorothy: Oh, pardon me. Let me correct myself. Youíre not the dogs that wag their tail in front of their master. Oh, l beg your pardon. Let me correct myself. You're not dogs that wag their tail in front of their master.  
Dorothy rubs her finger along her eyebrow and smiles.
Dorothy: In fact, you're the that gets wagged. You're the tail that is wagged!
Man 1: Shut your mouth, lady! Youíre lookin' at a man that shot down five mobile suits in a war a year ago, so don't you be callin' us names! Shut your mouth, lady! You're looking at a man who shot down five mobile suits in the war a year ago!  
Dorothy: Thatís funny. I see no men around here. The only men I know are either buried or always have their faces displayed up on that screen! That's funny. l see no men around here. The only men l know are either buried or are broadcast on that screen!  
Dorothy points at the video monitor on the building above the crowd.
Crowd: [overlapping voices] What does she mean? What is this?    
More scenes from the mobile suit battle in the streets are shown on the monitor, and the crowd continues to watch as Heavyarms, Deathscythe, Sandrock and Tallgeese III continue to take down the Serpent mobile suits.
Man 2: I guess peace is not something that is just handed to us, right? Peace is not something that is just handed to us...  
Man 3: I think we might have been mistaken. l think we might have been mistaken.  
Man 4: Youíre right. We should be fighting ourselves!. Of course, we won't have any weapons to fight with. You're right. We should be the ones fighting. Of course, we won't use any weapons to fight.  
Man 5: Is that the responsibility given to us survivors? Is that the responsibility given to us survivors?  
Man 4: We must prove that we deserve this peace that we have worked so hard to obtain. We must confirm that we are worthy of this freedom. We must prove that we deserve this peace that we have worked so hard to obtain. We must confirm that we are worthy of this freedom.  
Man 1: Hmm. Okay, Iím going! Iím going to where Miss Relena is if anybody wants to follow! Okay, I'm going! I'm going to the Presidential Palace-to Relena!  
Man 6: You mean now? You mean now?
Man 1: Right now! Yeah!
Man 6: But how, though? But how?
Man 1: Weíll find a way! We'll find a way!
Man 4: Iím going too! I canít just wait around and not do anything! I'm going too! l can't just wait around and not do anything!  
Man 7: Count me in, too! Anyone else, just follow us! Count me in, too! Anyone else, just follow us!  
Others: Right, Iím ready to join you! Iím going too! Me too! Itís time that we stood up for something! Right, I'm joining you! I'm going too! Me too! It's time that we stood up for something! Will we get there in time?!  
Dorothy: Well, I guess Iíve got no choice. Well, let me give you all a ride on my transportation. l guess I've got no choice. Let me give you all a ride in my vehicle.  
Dorothy waves, and multiple large trucks pull up to the plaza area and stop.
Back in the midst of the mobile suit battle, Duo, Trowa and Quatre work the same section of the city, but the supply of new Serpents seems never-ending. Duo slices two more Serpent mobile suits with Deathscythe's beam scythe...
Duo: Take this! Take this!
And then faces another seven Serpents down the next street he turns into...
Duo: Damn. They just keep coming, all at once! Damn! They just keep coming, all at once!  
And plows his Gundam directly into them.
Duo: Here I go! Here l go!!
Heavyarms and Sandrock both continue to fight, taking down the MMA Serpents one and two at a time.
Quatre: Looks like weíre fighting another losing battle. Looks like we're fighting another losing battle.  
On the floor of the ocean, Wing Zero rests. Heero is sitting slack in the pilot's control chair in the Gundam, all power and controls are dark.
The Zero System starts to power up, and then fades to black once again.
Heero: Hmm?
Zero System powers up again, but this time the humming becomes louder as the rest of the Gundam's power systems come back online, and the head of Wing Zero shifts.
Heero: Zero? Can you move? Zero. Can you move?
The Gundam places a hand on the ocean floor, and slowly stands, extending its wings and crouching for takeoff.
Heero: Sure. Thisíll be your final flight. Sure. This'll be your final fight.
Heero moves the control levers, and the Gundam prepares the lift from the ocean floor.
The street battle in Brussels worsens as the Serpent troops bring in heavier artillery, and the Gundams begin to take on some surface damage.
Duo: Ee-yah!
Zechs: Gundam pilots, you've done enough now! You must leave us and get out immediately! Gundam pilots, that's enough! Leave us and retreat. Gundam pilots, that's enough. Leave us, and retreat.
Quatre: What? Get out? If we were fighting to kill, we would be done long ago. Retreat?! If we were fighting to kill, weíd be done long ago. Re...retreat... If this was a battle to take lives, it would have ended long ago.
Sandrock loses the use of one of its shotels and steps back from the ongoing fire of the Serpent mobile suits.
Quatre: But, if we did, then there'd be no meaning at all in our coming back here! But then coming back here would be meaningless! But that would've defeated the point of us coming.
Noin: But at this rate, youíd die in vain! At this rate, youíd die in vain! But if you stay, you'll die for nothing.
Duo: If weíd planned on retreating, we'd have been gone. Though, I know itíll be tough to continue fighting. If weíd planned on retreating, we would've been gone. I know itíll be tough to keep fighting, though. If we were gonna retreat, we would've been on the run from the start. But this's a bit ridiculous going on like this.
Trowa: We used to be just like them, Duo. They've been coaxed by Dekim into believing that their only purpose in this life is to fight battles. We used to be just like them. Dekim coaxed them into believing their reason for living is to fight. They are the way we used to be. Dekim is manipulating their purpose in life.
Noin flies above the street in her Aries, and fires down from above.
Noin: But you'll die! But...! But...!
Duo: Hey, donít worry about it. Weíre gotten pretty good at these losing battles! Hey, donít worry about it. We're gotten pretty good at these losing battles! Don't let it bother you. We're used to having our asses kicked all the time.
Deathscythe flies at yet another Serpent mobile suit, and Sandrock fights on, now with only a section of one shotel left.
Quatre: And thatís the reason why we've always been able to remain as ourselves. Thatís why we could always be true to ourselves. And that's why we can be who we are.
Int. Control room of the presidential estate. Relena stands and addresses Dekim and, at his side, Mariemaia.
Relena: The reason I returned to being a Darlian was not to take revenge for my father. Nothing can be accomplished with revenge. Hatred will only result in bringing more hatred! I didnít go back to being Darlian to get revenge for my father. Nothing can be achieved through revenge. Hatred will only result in breeding more hatred! I did not return to being Darlian for my father's revenge. Nothing comes from revenge. Hatred will only create more hatred.
Mariemaia: You think that way now because you lost your battle. But my thoughts are different. I will truly be victorious. You only think that way because you lost your battle. But Iím different. I will truly be victorious. That is because you lost. But I am different. I will be the victor.
Soldier: The Gundams have all stopped fighting. The Gundams have all stopped fighting. The Gundams have ceased fire.
Mariemaia tilts her head at Relena.
Mariemaia: Told ya! Told you. See.
Duo powers off Deathscythe's beam scythe and backs his Gundam into a protective position with Sandrock and Heavyarms; the Gundams are surrounded by Serpent mobile suits. Tallgeese III and Noin's white Taurus are positioned back to back near a wall only a short distance away.
Duo: Iíve got nothing left, but our self-detonating devices could take out about half the remaining suits. What do you think? Iíve got nothing left. Self-detonating could take out about half the suits left. What do you think? We're outta ammo. We could clear half of them if we self-destruct. Should we?
Trowa: No. Detonation should be done away from them. We must limit casualties to just ourselves. No. Detonation should be done away from them. Limit the casualties to just ourselves. If you're going to self-destruct, don't take anybody else with you. We're the only ones who should die.
Duo: Yeah, guess youíre right. Guess you're right. Y...you're right.
An alert tone sounds in Quatre's cockpit, quickly followed by responses from the other pilots.
Quatre: Huh? What?! Hey...
Trowa: Where?
Duo: Above us! Above us! Another enemy?!
Zechs: Wing Zero! Wing Zero! Wing Zero!
Wing Zero, carbon-scored and damaged from the fight with Altron and its subsequent plunge through the Earth's atmosphere, holds position in the sky above Brussels, its massive buster rifle pointed at the Presidential Estate barricade below.
Heero: Locked onto the target! Locked onto target!. Target, locked on.
Int. Control room of the presidential estate. In the control center, alerts sound.
Soldier: Another Gundam confirmed, sir! It's in the sky! Another Gundam confirmed! Another Gundam has appeared above us!
Dekim: What?! What?! What?!
Soldier: Mr. Dekim! Weíre online with one of the Gundam pilots! Mr. Dekim! Weíre online with one of the Gundam pilots! Sir, there's a transmission from the Gundam pilot!
Heero's image comes up on the main monitor screen.
Relena: Heero! Heero! Heero.
Heero: Let me confirm. Your shelter shield is activated? Let me confirm. Your shelter shieldís activated? Confirm that your shelter shields are up.
Dekim: What are you planning? What are you planning? What are you...?
Heero: Your shelter secure, is it? Is your shield activated? Are your shields perfect?
Mariemaia: Of course it is. See for yourself just how powerless you are! Of course it is. Admit to yourselves just how powerless you are! Of course. Now you shall learn how small you are!
Heero: Roger that. Roger. Roger.
Mariemaia: Huh?
Heero fires upon the shield, and the power of the blast destroys all of the Serpent mobile suits on the surface and cracks the shield plate. The force of the blast causes the control room to shudder.
Dekim: Gather all the Serpents here! Shoot down Wing Zero! Gather all the Serpents here! Shoot down Wing Zero! Assemble Serpent Unit! Bring Wing Zero down!
Mariemaia: Wh.. what a miserable person. HeísÖ He's not going to be able to achieve anything. What a miserable person. Heís not going to prove anything. H...he's such a wretched man. It's a w...waste of time d...doing such a thing...
Relena: Are you afraid, Mariemaia? Are you afraid, Mariemaia? Are you scared, Mariemaia?
Mariemaia: Humph.
Heero fires upon the shield a second time, but Wing Zero begins to break apart under the strain. Flame bursts from the verneirs, armor falls from the torso of the suit, electrical shorts spark within the cockpit, and the left arm of the mobile suit breaks free.
Dekim: Thatís impossible! How could this be happening? Thatís impossible! How could this be happening? Impossible, how could this...?
Soldier: The shield has lost half its strength! Wing Zeroís aim is accurate to one-hundredth of a unit! This shelter will collapse for certain it itís hit again in the same place! The shieldís lost half its strength! Wing Zero's aim is accurate to one-hundredth of a unit! This shelter will collapse it itís hit again in the same place! Shield defense is down by half. Wing Zero's aim is accurate by point 2 decimals. If he hits the same place again, the shelter will collapse!
Dekim: [addressing Heero] Stop it! Don't you realize that Relena Peacecraft is in here! Stop it! Relena Peacecraft is in here! Stop! Relena Peacecraft is here, too!
Heero: Hmmm.
Heero lowers the beam rifle only slightly.
Relena: Heero. Hmm. Heero. Heero.
Mariemaia: Huh?
Serpent mobile suits take flight and fire upon Wing Zero.
Heero has a brief flashback to the little girl and her puppy, and the girl handing him the yellow flower. Heero leans forward, ignores the attacking Serpent mobile suits, and takes aim on the shield once more. He fires, and this time Wing Zero breaks up and flames and smoke exhausts into the cockpit.
The other Gundam pilots, Zechs, and Noin all look up at the explosion.
Quatre: Heero! Heero! Heero!
Others: [gasps]
Wing Zero's final shot breaks through the protective shield, and the control center bursts into flames as well. Lady Une runs in from the back of the control room and tackles both Relena and Mariemaia to the ground.
Lady Une: Are you okay? Are you okay? Are you alright?
Mariemaia: Yeah. Who are you? Who are you? You're...?
Lady Une: Even though you may be mistaken, I personally cannot allow His Excellency Treize's daughter to die. Even though you may be mistaken, I canít allow the daughter of His Excellency, Treize, to die. Even if you're in the wrong, I cannot let Treize's daughter die.
Mariemaia: Huh?
Soldier: Another Gundam has arrived. This time at the Number Four defense line at Point E! Mr. Dekim! Another Gundam has arrived at defense line number 4 point E! AlsoÖ Lord Dekim, there's another Gundam on defense line 4, point E and also...
Brussels: Altron stands in the center of a city square with many people standing at the feet of the mobile suit. Serpent mobile suits stand opposite Altron, and the people stand between Altron and the Serpents, shouting.
Man: There is no way we would obey you! There is no way weíd obey you! We're not listening to you anymore!
Man 2: We donít want any more battles! We don't want any more wars! We don't want war!
Man 3: We want to protect the peace here all by ourselves! We want to protect the peace here ourselves! We will protect our peace!
From their respective mobile suit cockpitsÖ
Wufei: Battles like these are not decided by the soldiers. Thanks to these people, I can now give up fighting! Battles like these are not decided by soldiers. Thanks to them, I can give up fighting! Battles are not fought by soldiers. At last I can leave the fighting behind me.
Wufei closes his eyes, smiles, and nods to himself.
Wufei: This, Treize, is my goodbye. This is goodbye, Treize. Farewell, Treize.
Noin: Oh, Zechs. Zechs. Zechs...
Zechs: This is good. We donít have to abandon all hope just yet. This is good. We donít have to abandon hope just yet. This way...this way, I won't have to give up hope again.
Trowa: The detonating device missed its chance again. The detonating device missed its chance again. The self-destruct was wasted again.
Dekim watches the video monitor in disbelief.
Dekim: Who the hell are those people? Who the hell are they...?! What are they...?!
Lady Une: While His Excellency fought losing battles, he loved people who werenít afraid keep their stance and fight, and that is why the people are so able to accept the Gundams. It is not the victor that moves the heart of the people. While His Excellency fought losing battles, he truly loved people who werenít afraid to fight. And that is why people can accept the Gundams. It's not the heart of the victor that moves the heart of the people. Treize loved people with the will and determination to fight, even in bad times. And that is why people will accept the Gundams. It's not the victor who moves the people.
Wing Zero crashes to the ground, the access hatch opens with an explosive charge, and Heero falls from the cockpit and stumbles to his feet.
In the control center, Dekim continues to watch the video monitor.
Dekim: This is insane! We can not be defeated! We, the Barton Family, are the true rulers of the Earth Sphere! Miss Mariemaia! Assume your position as head of the Earth Sphere! This is crazy! We can not be defeated! We, the Barton Family, are the true rulers of the Earth Sphere! Miss Mariemaia! Assume your position as head of the Earth Sphere! Ridiculous! We know no defeat! The Barton Family is the true conqueror of the world! Please, Mariemaia, now is the time to stand at the head of the Nation!
In a daze, Mariemaia stumbles towards Dekim.
Mariemaia: I amÖ victorious... Iím carrying out the will of my fatherÖ I amÖ victorious... Iím carrying out my fatherís desiresÖ I am the victor... I will fulfill my father's will...
Lady Une walks around to step in front of Mariemaia and raises her hand as if to slap Mariemaia across the face.
Lady Une: Hmm. Do forgive me. Forgive me! Forgive me.
Relena steps in front of Lady Une, and strikes Mariemaia across her face. Mariemaia holds her hand to her cheek and looks dazed.
Mariemaia: Huh?
Relena: Excuse me, but itís about time you opened your eyes, Mariemaia. Excuse me. But it's time you opened your eyes, Mariemaia. Excuse me, but it's time you realized, Mariemaia.
Mariemaia: Huh? Miss Relena... Relena... Miss Relena...
Relena: You have now learned what real fear is. So I am sure you are now able to acknowledge all the mistakes you have made in the past. You have learned what real fear is. So Iím sure you can see all the mistakes youíve made. Now you understand fear. You should be able to accept your own mistakes.
Dekim: Stop right there, Relena Peacecraft. Dekim points a gun at Relena I canít allow you to brainwash my Mariemaia with such garbage! Stop right there, Relena Peacecraft. I canít allow you to brainwash my Mariemaia with such trash! That's enough, Relena Peacecraft. I wish you wouldn't put ideas into my Mariemaia's head.
Relena: If you wish to shoot me, go right ahead! I am prepared to die! If you wish to shoot me, go right ahead! Iím prepared to die! Shoot if you wish. I am resolved.
Dekim: Then Iíll tell you what the truth is before you die. The public is always expected to obey the victor! Then I'll tell you the truth before you die. The public must obey the victor! I'll tell you the truth before you die. People are there to follow the victor.
Dekim fires his gun at Relena. Mariemaia pushes Relena out of the way and runs directly into Dekim's bullet, she stumbles and falls to the ground as Dekim and the surrounding soldiers gasp in horror.
Relena: Mariemaia! Mariemaia! Mariemaia!
Relena runs to the aid of Mariemaia as the pool of blood under the young girl spreads.
Dekim: We can always create a replacement for Mariemaia! I made her after all! We can always create a replacement for Mariemaia! I made her after all! I can replace Mariemaia easily. Even she's the one that I...
Dekim takes aim at Relena again.
Lady Une: Dekim! Dekim! Dekim!
Lady Une shouts out at Dekim, and draws her sidearm, taking aim. A shot is fired, and Dekim falls to the ground, bleeding and gasping. A soldier of Mariemaia's Army stands to the side, holding a pistol and shaking slightly.
Soldier: I have executed the rebel, Dekim. I express my apologies for betraying His Excellency. Iíve executed the rebel. I express my apologies for betraying His Excellency, Treize. I...I have executed the traitor. We wish to atone for our betrayal of His Excellency Treize by this.
The soldier salutes, and the remaining soldiers follow his lead. Relena and Une both kneel at the side of Mariemaia. Relena holds her and settles the girl onto Une's lap for support and talks to her.
Relena: Mariemaia, hold on! Mariemaia, hold on! Mariemaia, hold on.
Mariemaia: Relena, I was mistaken. Iím so sorry. Relena, I was mistaken. Iím sorry. I was wrong... I...I'm sorry...
Relena: Mariemaia. Mariemaia. Mariemaia.
Heero: Iíll relieve you of your pain. I'll put you out of your misery. I'll put you to rest.
Heero speaks from the dark corner of the room, and Relena turns around, surprised, and sees Heero holding a gun, which is pointed a Mariemaia.
Relena: Huh? Heero. Heero. Heero.
Mariemaia: I thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Heero fires an empty gun at Mariemaia, symbolically killing her and her past. Mariemaia closes her eyes and smiles.
Heero: Iíve killed Mariemaia. I willÖ never killÖ anyone ever again. I've killed Mariemaia. I...I will never kill again. I don't have to kill any more. I've killed Mariemaia. I...I won't kill anyone, anymore...
Heero shifts his grip on the gun, his arm collapses, he drops the gun, and stumbles forward.
Heero: I donít have to any more. I don't have to kill any more. I've killed Mariemaia. I...I won't kill anyone, anymore...
Relena: Oh! HeeroÖ Heero! Heero!
Relena leaves Mariemaia in Une's care and runs to catch an unconscious and falling Heero, she grabs him around his waist as he collapses, and they fall to the ground together, and she eases him so his head is resting on her chest.
Relena: Oh, Heero. HeeroÖ Heero.
Lady Une is holding Mariemaia, and she calls out to the soldiers in the room.
Lady Une: We can still save her! Take her to the doctor! There's still hope for her! Take her to the doctor! There's still hope! Get her to the medical room quickly!
Soldier: Yes, maíam! Yes, ma'am! Yes, ma'am!
Relena strokes Heero's hair and closes her eyes.
Relena: Oh, finally, itís over. Finally, itís over. It's finally over...
Heero mumbles something and moves his head closer.
Relena: Hmmm.
Relena continues to stroke Heero's hair, soothing him.
Exterior of the city plaza with a large number of people gathered around the feet of the mobile suits, Serpent and Altron alike. Mariemaia's soldiers descend from their Serpents and discard their rank and insignia in a pile on the ground, shedding their uniform hats and armbands along with their armaments, which they then burn in a bonfire as the people watch and Wufei looks on from his vantage point in Altron.
Dawn breaks across the skyline of the city, revealing the profiles of Deathscythe, Heavyarms and Sandrock. Duo is standing on a grassy hill, detonator in hand and looking at the Gundams.
Duo: Well, itís goodbye for real, buddy. This time itís goodbye for real, buddy. This time, it is the end, partner.
He depresses the plunger on the detonator, and the three mobile suits glow red about their seams before dissolving within a bright arc of light. The scene turns to the right, and Trowa, Duo and Quatre are seen standing on a rocky hillside, surrounded by trees and blue sky.
Trowa: Iíve once again become nameless. I've become nameless again. I'm back to being nameless.
Quatre: [turns to look at Trowa and offers] Trowa sounds fine to me. Why not keep it, Trowa? Trowa sounds fine to me. Why not keep it, Trowa? I don't think it makes a difference. Trowa is Trowa.
Duo: Names are things other people give ya. There's no point wasting time worrying. Whatís important is that we have a place we can call home, right? Names are give to you by others. No point wasting time worrying about it. Whatís important is having a place we can call home. Right? Names are for other people to call you. It's no use trying to change that. Anyway, we've got someplace to go home to, right?
Trowa: Yeah, youíre right, Duo. Yeah, you're right. You're right.
In a river valley deep in the mist-filled mountains of China, Gundam Altron explodes in a burst of white light as Wufei watches from a stone outcropping.
Wufei: Nataku, may you rest in peace. Nataku, may you rest in peace. Nataku, rest in peace.
He turns and Sally is standing behind him, dressed in a Preventers uniform.
Sally: Wufei. It seems Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. So, whatta you say? Do you wanna come work and with me? Wufei. Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. What do you say? Wanna come work with me? Wufei. Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. How about it? You want to work with me?
Wufei: Do you mean, work as a Preventer? Hmm, why not? As a Preventer? Why not? A Preventer, eh...? Sounds good.
Above Earth's atmosphere in a small silver spacecraft.
Noin: Are you sure? The Terraforming Project hasnít even officially started yet. Are you sure? The Terra Formation Project hasnít officially started yet. Are you sure? Terraforming still isn't in the operational stage.
Zechs: It's something Relena is working on, and it wonít be easy. Thatís why a dead person would be perfect for the job. Noin, are you sure you... Relena is working on it, and it wonít be easy. That's why a dead person would be perfect for the job. Noin, are you sure you... It's something Relena wants to do. It's bound to be rash. That's why someone who's already dead has to do it. Noin, you don't have to...
Noin: Zechs, please donít make me repeat myself, again. Don't make me repeat myself, Zechs. Don't make me repeat myself, Zechs.
Against a background of stars.
Narrator: After Colony year 197, peace has returned to the people. And from this point on in history, weapons called mobile suits, including the Gundams, were never seen again. After Colony year 197. Peace has returned to the people. And from this point on, weapons known as Mobile Suits, including Gundams, were never seen again. After Colony year 197. The people have regained their peace. In the history that followed, weapons called Mobile Suits, including Gundams, never appeared again.
Song: Last Impression Last Impression Last Impression
While the ending song plays, scenes continue from the end of the movieÖ
Lady Une, dressed in civilian clothing, pushes a wheelchair-bound Mariemaia through a sunny ocean-side graveyard.

Duo wanders through a busy marketplace, barters with a junk dealer for a specific part, bows at the man and then hugs him when the deal is agreed to. Duo then walks through the colony city with his purchase, sees Hilde sitting at an Asian restaurant, drinking tea and eating rice dumplings. He joins her, chokes on a dumpling, and gulps his tea.

A shuttle approaches X18999. Inside the colony, a busy construction site with a multistory building, Quatre checks a clipboard list as Rashid offers him a beverage. The other Maganac soldiers, now wearing construction overalls the same tan color as Quatre and Rashidís, run by carrying building materials.

The exterior of a circus tent, followed by an interior view of three elephants balancing balls on the end of their trunks as Catherine flies through the air on her trapeze and lets go, and Trowa leaps into the air and lands on a high wire, hands outstretched. Catherine lands in his arms, and a white dove lands on her outstretched hand.

A fireball of an explosion rises above the desert like a setting sun, the camera moves to the right, revealing a military Jeep, with Sally Po standing and watching the explosion through binoculars as Wufei Chang, now also wearing a Preventers uniform, enters data into a laptop computer in the neighboring seat. Sally sits down in the drivers' seat and the Jeep drives off in a cloud of dust.

Zechs and Noin are in a spacecraft, dressed in Preventer spacesuits, and sitting comfortably on either side of a chess board.

Relena is standing in the receiving line at a formal dignitary event outside of a white estate house.

Heero is standing on a crosswalk in the middle of a busy city square. He looks to the skyÖ

Heero: Mission complete.
Camera pulls up to an aerial view of the city, and the screen fades to black and the end credits scroll up the screen.
