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.
They missed it!
Milliardo, there's one other person who understands me.
Her feelings toward me have given her split personalities.
The actions you took were justified.
And what I'm about to do is also justified!!
Duo, the God of Death once Again
We're adjusting the ballast.
Go slowly. Easy does it.
Get some light on those rocks!
There it is!
It's hardly damaged, considering the battle it's been through.
This was just Heero's trick, abandoning his Gundam at sea while he goes
to space alone.
It's a mobile suit submarine carrier!
No surprise that OZ would come here too.
It's a dangerous job...
Don't concern yourself about us mercenaries.
We have expertise as the former Alliance's Deep-Sea Unit!
Prepare to send out the Pisces!
Object at I o'clock.
Right, send out the Cancers!
All units, open fire!!
Propeller sound confirmed!
Enemy mobile suits!
Come in! Cancer!
Discarding his Gundam like that...
What was he thinking...?
The foundation of our future will be built by these suits.
These are for mass-production.
But don't worry about cost performance.
Resources in space are unlimited!
He treats the Space Colonies like old world colonies to be plundered!
Let him be.
We'll give him something to remember.
I'm counting on you.
Where are you taking that?
It's the Gundam you took apart to try stealing our technology.
You're still interested even after it was trashed.
How dare you!
I don't need that!
Get rid of it!
As you wish, Chief Engineer!
Shall I start making a mobile suit superior to the Gundams?
Get to work!
Quit rushing me.
I've got a lot of things to take care of.
Sorry to keep you.
There's no point in just rebuilding them.
You didn't used to have any problems with your principles against war
So why is there a need for armaments now?
A hundred years have passed since the colonies were experimental.
We feel there's no choice but to avoid battle by arming ourselves.
This is Sally Po, formerly a Major in the Alliance Military.
As a rebel organization member opposing OZ she's supported and led a
number of their maneuvers.
There are also signs that she has the Gundams O1 and O4.
The Romefeller Foundation that controls OZ is the most powerful entity
I'd say there are problems with that organization.
However, we wanted to protect the colonies.
And that's why we've accepted OZ.
We chose the option that would give us more safety.
Armed struggle will continue on Earth.
That's why we chose this method of protection.
OZ is keeping the Gundam engineers captive.
Those on Earth opposing OZ think that OZ alone is changing the world
into a dangerous place to live.
We've heard that the engineers have already been executed.
We cannot maintain our dignity as a nation unless we augment our
strength and eliminate the chance of more rebels.
Our decision won't change.
Please try to understand our reasoning.
The engineers have been executed?
It's this kind of fabricated rumor we must fear the most.
Also, natural resources and parts have been transported from the plant
colonies as we begin mobile suits production on the Lunar Plant, together
with support from OZ.
We no longer have to fear the possibility of an invasion.
With Commander-in-Chief Treize and Colonel Une's help this will mark
the beginning of a new era for outer space.
What a bunch of crap.
They're the ones who planted the fear of war in everyone.
That's not true.
The colonies have suffered a history of humiliation.
We aren't afraid of battles that will allow colony independence.
Who are you?
My name is Hilde Schbeiker.
I've volunteered my services from this colony.
So you're an OZ soldier.
Anyone can be critical.
The work of the colony's students speaks for itself.
Our volunteer work at the Lunar Plant reflects our faith in OZ.
Huh...Is that so?
Then maybe I should apply, as well.
The next military exam is in one week.
Why don't you give it a try if you like?
Count on it; I'll be there.
We're headed to the Lunar Base.
Are they using us as test pilots for the new models?
Maybe as target.
Even OZ admits that we're pretty psyched.
The objective of OZ and its mother organization, Romefeller was to
destroy the United Earth Sphere Alliance and take control of Earth.
Why don't they take over the colonies?
Taking over the defenseless colonies would be like twisting a baby's
Maybe Zechs would be able to understand.
Treize is getting hungry for mortal combat.
And the overconfident colonies will realize just how much stronger
All soldiers prepare to board ship on the double!
All soldiers prepare to board ship on the double!
Here you go, sir.
Have a nice day.
You talking to me?
I told you, new volunteers are to apply next week.
Give me a look at that application!
It's all filled out.
But it's a fake!!
-He's taken the Leo! -After him!
Everybody stay calm!
I don't want to start firing inside the colony!
You won't get away!!
My goal is to destroy the Lunar Plant but it's too far away!
If you retaliate, I'll have to kill you!!
Warning shots are meaningless against inexperienced fighters!
This one's for the peace of the colony!
I'm fighting for the peace of the colony as well.
Moving in till it's in target range!
We're both fighting for the colonies!
Then why are we enemies?!
Are you pleading for your life?!
I'm telling you!
We aren't enemies!
I volunteered and pledged my loyalty.
I'm prepared to die any time!
You're so intense it makes me sick!
Hey, get outta here!
Who would've thought you were a Gundam pilot?
Why did you save me?
What are you talking about?
I'm prepared to sacrifice my life.
I don't need sympathy from my enemies.
Hilde, you say?
What ''enemies'' do you mean?
Since when is the colony an organization fighting a war?
When the Alliance came from Earth to attack the colonies smiles
disappeared from people's faces.
I've been fighting to help give back those smiles.
Then I come back to the colony, and guess what?
People don't want their smiles back.
Tell me something.
When did the colonies get so twisted?
Outer space is affected by the war on Earth.
We can't just sit back and be taken over.
This is outer space's decision.
Your bravery's commendable.
So where are you taking me?
To the Lunar Base.
You'll be questioned on the Gundam, among other things.
Saves me a trip.
You know I'm planning to destroy the Lunar Base.
You don't stand a chance.
Why don't you see me as an enemy?
I won't let you destroy it.
Hate to say this, but you don't have the skills to be my enemy.
So it's foolish for you to risk your life against me.
But you remind me of how reckless I was when I went to Earth to fight
all on my own.
Don't patronize me!
In fact, we're both foolish.
A soldier can get killed at any time.
We'll see many friends in the colony lose their lives.
Let's live our lives believing in the paths we've chosen.
You've got to be at least that foolish to make it as a soldier.
Did he tell you anything?
When we were fighting couldn't we have fired a warning shot?
We have orders to kill rebels when necessary.
That's what wars are about.
Even if it means sacrificing your own people?
I feel bad about it.
But soldiers must always be prepared to die to fulfill their missions.
Unit Chief, we're about to arrive at the Lunar Base.
We'll take the shuttle to OZ's military establishment.
To deliver the prisoner.
The third engine's on fire!
Someone on board did it!
And now, the getaway.
Hey, that was quick.
You've got good instincts.
I'm blowing up the hatch.
Step back if you don't wanna get hurt.
You're gonna do what...?!
Stop it, Duo!
What was that explosion?!
What's wrong?! Report!
The mass balance device is busted!
I'll get seasick!
I made it to the moon!
Am I washed-up?
Not too bad a job, if I do say so myself.
Hurry up and finish me off!
I hate the thought of being killed by a machine!
Give your code to prove you're an ally!
You'll get killed!
I can't do that.
There's no telling who my allies are anymore.
Hurry up and do what you want to accomplish!
I decided to live out my life, believing in my chosen path.
This time I'm not bailing you out!
I told you, I'm already prepared to die!
Yeah, I remember.
Just don't die in vain!
Same goes for you.
What are you doing, Hilde?
Drop your gun at once.
I've got a serious problem with your conduct!!
I'll get to the plant through this duct.
There he is!
Don't lose him!
We believe the enemy has entered Area B6!
We're in pursuit!
Call from a colony Unit Chief.
The enemy is attempting to destroy the mobile suit plant!
Get security underground and stop him from entering!
What the heck?
The God of Death.
That's four of them.
Are you here to kill us, too?
Long time no see, Duo.
So it WAS you guys.
Then those are...!
They're new models.
Duo, how would you like to operate one?
When's it finished?
In one month.
Make sure you live until it's finished.
Then you'll have your chance in the spotlight.
Duo, decide quickly.
We can't let them find this place!
Okay, we'll do it your way!
Hurry up and get started!
Could you do the honors?
As much as I hate to...
It wouldn't hurt as much if you screamed out loud.
But I'm a real man.
Coming here and trying to kill us, after all we've done!
We won't let anyone interfere with our research.
Botched your mission?
You couldn't destroy the base and you didn't kill Dr. J and the others.
Don't rub it in.
I'm still glad I decided to come here.
Your Gundam and mine are being rebuilt.
I can hardly wait!
Looks like OZ will be keeping us alive for the time.
It's a good chance, so don't die yet.
Don't worry about me!
I don't plan on dying that easily.
There's the colonies to fight for.
I'll be the God of Death again!
Well good night...
I've completed my mission to escort Ambassador Peacecraft on his
I'm sure the Ambassador realizes how resolved the people in space are.
How about from the eyes of Zechs Merquise?
He has opinions about this era as well.
We'll battle again.
We'll hear his decision then.
I don't think anyone can stop the future.
Not even Treize.
But I'll try to direct things toward Treize's ideal.
I can sacrifice my life for that purpose.
I'll fight and win.
For Treize's future.
And for my own future.
To be continued
Is destruction the only path for an outer space gone mad?
A mobile suit resembling a Gundam attacks the colonies that are arming
Trowa and Heero head out to face this powerful new suit.
They find that the pilot of this mobile suit is Quatre cold with anger
and full of deep sorrow.
Next, on Gundam Wing, episode 24
