the year After Colony 175 the leader of the colonies was assassinated.
Five Gundams were sent to Earth to take revenge.
However, since OZ's activities in space took the form of cooperation
rather than control the colonies decided to accept OZ.
The year After Colony 195.
As OZ moves to take over both Earth and outer space Gundams are labeled
rebels and are isolated from society.
With no place to return the Gundams and their pilots must fight for a
reason to exist in the changing world.
It's an astro suit!
The astro suit has also been set as a target!
Cancel it! Hurry!!
I'll eliminate all obstacles.
The Lunar Base Infiltration
Did you say the lunar base?!
A large amount of Gundanium alloy is being brought into the Lunar Base
It's probably for making a new type of mobile suit.
So what are your plans?
Just stay here.
You'll get in the way.
What do you meaan?!
I'm gonna need time to recover, considering all that's happened.
But how about being a little kinder to me once in a while?
Why not go to school instead of me?
I've already got the admission taken care of, under your name.
You've gotta be kidding!
Sure, your name would stick out here, but still...!
Instead of complaining, just rest and get better.
Don't overdo it.
Like he's gonna listen.
Of course he'll overdo it.
I'll decide once I get to the moon whether to steal the new mobile suit
or destroy it.
With only one sixth the gravity of Earth the moon wasn't suitable for
Upon completion of the Space Colonies construction was started on lunar
research facilities and major factories of various sorts.
The moon further developed into a popular tourist destination for
It prospered until its suppression by the Alliance.
After OZ dismantled the Alliance Military the moon was again allowed to
be a tourist destination.
People saw it as a sign that peace was returning to space.
People are now free to travel between the colonies.
It seems that OZ has already seized much of outer space.
They've been handing out a lot of gifts these days to try and win
Once people trust OZ, the rest is easy.
Resources and labor will soon all be controlled by OZ.
Let's build OZ a real rascal to keep them occupied.
The Mercurius defense system is looking pretty impressive.
And the Vayeate should start taking shape once the mainframe is built.
Just a matter of time before it's completed.
I don't intend to work under OZ forever!
Officially speaking, this is Lady Une's project.
But they'll be selecting mobile suit pilots from among the colony
This could all become quite interesting.
I doubt if things will work out that well.
Heero won't bother with the selection process.
It's more his style to go straight for their throats.
In any case we'll complete the powerful mobile suits that OZ wants so
Then prove that OZ can be destroyed by its own weapons!
Is OZ really thinking to establish a nation in space?
Now that we're free from the Alliance's control civilians can
communicate between the colonies and with the Earth.
We have OZ to thank for that.
But I don't see why they must try to control our future.
Perhaps, but given the present size of the Space Colonies it'd be
strange for us not to consider becoming a nation.
That's right, but this is our problem here.
It says our main industries will be military technology and mobile suit
The colony delegates are having problems with that document.
That seems natural.
They've seen the Alliance's reckless use of arms.
To them, a mobile suit manufacturer is like a merchant of death.
The nations supporting OZ like space technology only because they can
use it to improve military power.
I can't see the peace-minded colonies going along with it.
They can think of our plan for the arms as a deterrent.
Arrangements will be made to bring what space is lacking.
What space is lacking...?
Proper public order.
Sorry to keep you all waiting.
Have you had a chance to read through our document?
I believe one of the reasons the Space Colonies were considered a
threat to Earth was that the colonies lacked an organizational structure.
I think forming a nation is a step in the right direction.
But you're having problems with the major industries...?
How can there be world peace based on this idea that arms are needed as
History's taught us otherwise.
We can establish a new public order different from Earth.
We're proud this technology will be the source of our capital but we
shouldn't be considering military power!
In my heart, I feel this war has already come to an end.
OZ is a military organization.
We've made an effort to settle repeated disputes on Earth.
The goal of the United Earth Sphere Alliance was to achieve peace
without relying on military power.
Just as you're suggesting.
But think what those strategies gave rise to.
There's no need for reckless battle.
But you can't discuss mankind's beauty without acknowledging the desire
Am I the only one who admires man's will to fight?
I hadn't expected OZ to restore it to this extent.
But I can't hand this Gundam over to OZ!
I was gonna ask you.
You've gotta be some kind of expert to sneak in here at night and set
Hand me that detonation switch.
I don't care what happens.
You're not getting that Gundam!
All those explosives and they didn't even make a dent!
That's disappointing, but the Gundam's sure impressive!
Damn! She's pretty aggressive!
OZ has found us!
Let's get outta here!
We've gotta be at least as brave as that lady!
We must recover Master Quatre's Gundam at all costs!
Leo troops, get a move on!
The enemy's in the hangar with the Gundam O4!
There it is!
We barely managed to sneak in and now look what's happening.
Abdul's plans never work out!
What was that?! Did you say something?!
I'm in a hurry, so get Master Quatre's Gundam here pronto!!
What's taking you, Auda?!
Don't fight so close to me!!
It wasn't easy swiping this carrier!
Don't blame me!
We were supposed to wait until OZ rebuilt the Gundam!
I didn't expect things would get moving this quickly!
Hurry up, Ahmad!!
I hear you!
We did it! Perfect!
Why'd you stop?
Don't even think about fighting!
It's that bloody woman again!
Hey, that's Auda!
I don't think we're enemies!
I sensed that.
But the guy I know would try to destroy the Gundam.
The guy I know would be sad if it were destroyed.
We're hoping to restore it to make him happy.
Does she know a Gundam pilot as well?
We belong to the Maguanac Corps of the Middle East.
Please leave this Gundam in our hands!
Sounds like a great kid, this pilot of yours.
So does your pilot.
Now, I'd better go and pick up what the other great kid left behind.
The following footage is of an event held today that is very
significant for the colonies ' defense.
These young volunteers are vying for a position to fight for the safety
of the colonies.
Why is everyone going along with OZ's every word?
The youngsters fared well in a firing test designed to reflect a real
In the next test, obstacles representing enemies will be placed along
each mobile suit's path.
The bombs are imitations.
But they carry an impact.
Here they come!
What a disaster.
But they're just amateurs.
I don't believe that guy!
What's with him?!
This is test pilot I.
I'm finished with the test.
Test pilot I, confirm your name!
I'm Trowa Barton.
Colonel, Trowa Barton is extraordinary!
Even though he's been through some simulations he couldn't make such
maneuvers in his first battle!
What are you implying?
He must've had some previous training.
At an extremely high level, too!
But his background has been checked hasn't it?
Yes, and there were no problems.
Then it sounds like he's got some natural talents.
Talents that he never had the chance to use before.
But isn't it possible that he's been sent to destroy OZ?!
He might even be a Gundam pilot!
We'll find out soon enough.
One more test.
Completely destroy the next target!
What's the matter, Trowa Barton?
Fire at the target!!
He is a Gundam pilot, just as I figured!
I'll get rid of him!
Lend me that beam cannon.
It's made of Gundanium alloy.
A Leo rifle won't do the job.
A Gundam, responsible for the misunderstandings between Earth and the
colonies and causing destruction will be destroyed by a colony citizen
wishing for peace.
Ladies and gentlemen, stand by to witness this!
Don't give up too easily.
You'll be okay, right?
You'll come out fine, right...?
About to commence second test.
Trowa Barton's brain waves and pulse remain unchanged.
Then he's the perfect pilot.
But I still have some doubts about him.
That boy's clearly willing to cooperate with OZ.
People with talent are capable of understanding us.
They're my tears.
The new type of mobile suits.
Many of the parts are still being designed.
I'll go destroy them.
Test pilot No. 1, Colonel Une wishes to speak with you.
It's still possible that he's a Gundam pilot!
I think it'd be wiser to meet him by myself.
He's come to try and understand OZ.
It'd be rude not to meet with him.
I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about.
As two individuals who love outer space.
Lieutenant Nichol, what are you so afraid of?
Let's put an end to the fighting, shall we?
My name is Lady Une.
It's a pleasure to meet you.
So this is Lady Une.
Chief Commander of OZ's Space operations.
So you've had experience with labor mobile suits in your job repairing
the colony's outer walls.
Your outstanding test results today have the OZ soldiers completely
I've always felt I had what it'd take to be a soldier.
So then I'm hired?
Let's work together to bring peace to outer space.
I'm just hoping that my abilities will come in handy to defeat the
Alliance's Space Forces.
I'd never thought about peace in outer space.
Then I thought of myself as the right type of person for OZ.
The right type of person?
I'm impressed how OZ is gradually taking over space while appearing to
act out of friendship.
People may think of it as foul play, but it suits me.
What do you mean, ''foul play''?
OZ is a place where the crafty are acknowledged.
That's what it's about.
It's not true!
She needs to get some rest!
Come this way.
What happened to her?
You might have tricked the Colonel, but not me.
The Colonel has ordered you to come back in two hours to test OZ's new
But just now the Colonel...
Lady Une is a much stronger person in her uniform.
She might feel like killing someone as questionable as you.
So I'm Lady Une of OZ...?
Or do I work under Treize...?
Didn't take you long to find your pilots, did it?
These five have been selected from the colony citizens as prospective
And this is Trowa Barton.
He should be able to control any suit.
These mobile suits of ours won't be simple to control.
I hear they're better than the Gundams.
I can't wait.
How far have you gotten?
The Mercurius is 80% complete and the Vayeate is about 50% complete.
What's the reason for developing two models?
We designed these two suit models as opposing principles in battle that
is, offense and defense in their extremes.
With the Vayeate, we added the largest possible beam cannon without
And with the Mercurius we added a defense shield to withstand such a
beam cannon attack.
Which would win if they were to fight each other?
Naturally, the one with the better pilot would win.
Who are you kidding?!
So the race to determine the superiority of mobile suits is
meaningless, since their value is directly dependent on the abilities of
You're sharp; I see why you were selected by OZ.
Leave him alone!
He'll be piloting one of those suits.
I'll allow his questions.
Uh, yes ma'am.
What tests will you be demonstrating for us today?
I'll show you the defense system of the Mercurius.
It's the latest system, which creates an electric field to allow it to
reflect any beam fired by the enemy.
And the Vayeate?
The Vayeate still needs some work.
It isn't even charged with energy yet.
The Vayeate's moving!
Activate the Mercurius shield!
Are you gonna make it?
What'd I tell you?
My weapon, he's something, don't you think?
That's for sure.
He even came after us!
That's some weapon!
To be continued
A white mobile suit approaches a colony.
Once it's determined to be Zechs' Tallgeese Lady Une orders Trowa and
Heero to attack it.
The injured Quatre returns to the Winner residence.
But, to his great sadness, there he finds his father being solely
blamed and criticized by the people.
