UNFALLEN SHOOTING STAR
They're entering the atmosphere The carriers are coming.
Their target is definitely this base.
It must be the new model.
Are all of them mobile dolls?
It's not enough to destroy this base.
But we cannot be killed, as Pro-Treize.
Operation NOVA The Longfeller Foundation has Built a mobile doll
production plant in Space.
The operation that calls for mobile dolls to head down to Earth is
called Operation NOVA.
To gain control over the entire Earth, they attacked areas that could
possibly be a threat.
And through force, bring them under the Foundation's control.
Try to get in close before they can use their beam cannons.
That's the only chance we've got.
Here they come.
I guess Space just loves to drop things onto Earth.
The Longfeller Foundation has succeeded in developing the pilotless
Mobile Suits called...
Mobile Dolls for the invasion of the universe.
But, there is a man inside the Foundation who is against using the
It is the leader of OZ, Treize Khushrenada.
Dermyle I don't think I agree with the direction the Longfeller
Foundation is heading in.
Your 'Great Traditions' are nothing but a false history that come from
people's nostalgia for the past.
I believe that doing battle is beautiful and that human life should be
I love and respect all those who have died in battle.
Treize has a different vision from that of the Foundation, in that he
doesn't want to use the Mobile Dolls.
Because of their lack of anything resembling humanity, they shouldn't
belong in OZ.
In a display of open opposition to the Longfeller Foundation...
Treize breaks away from them to go on his own.
However, the head of the Longfeller Foundation, who wishes to retain
control of the army, had Treize confined to quarters.
There are however, soldiers who agree with Treize's philosophy.
They call themselves 'Pro-Treize.'
All of this brings us to the present situation with the Pro-Treize
troops fighting against the Longfeller Foundation.
It's very difficult dealing with these individuals who support Treize.
He is making this harder than it should be.
Tsubarov, I believe we will be needing more Mobile Dolls.
Don't worry about it Nothing has changed in space.
We've captured the new Gundam and its pilot.
We will have it destroyed at the Moon Base.
The Gundams could be used as a symbol by the resistance.
Hurry up, Tsubarov.
You understand that merely having Colonel Treize confined isn't helping
We have to kill all who oppose us.
It is by far the easiest and best way of dealing with things.
I did this to you.
I'm sorry, Trowa.
You son of a bitch.
We've just received orders from Commander Tsubarov that all Gundam
pilots be eliminated.
Now we get to kill you.
Is here a good place for you to die?
I've already got a target lock.
That was fast.
The response time is faster than I expected.
Keep at it.
I've raised the level of the simulation.
Special envoy Tranto, open a channel to Commander Tsubarov Commander.
The system that controls the brain wave activity in the cockpit seems
to be able to increase the pilot's fighting ability.
The test pilot shows a response time as fast as the Mobile Dolls.
Tranto, didn't you listen to my orders?
I said, ''Destroy the Gundams.''
Because of Lady Une's rebellion, we now have Gundam pilots in this
base, which we don't have time to deal with.
I really believe that this system would be useful for OZ's own Mobile
We can make use of the Gundam's system.
We're trying to eliminate the word ''Gundam'' from everyone's
We don't need to rely on its technology.
Erase the word ''Gundam'' and anything else to do with it from
That's an order.
Commander Tsubarov has the final word on anything to do with Mobile
What can I do?
What do we do, Special Envoy Tranto?
Before we do anything, I want to do one last data check.
I want to review the data of the pilot's last fight with the Mobile
Nothing wrong with his brain wave activity.
What kind of medical exam is this?
I'm checking to see what kind of influence the cockpit system of Wing
Zero had on your brain waves.
This system is perfect.
Treize Khushrenada has been confined to quarters by Longfeller
Foundation's High Command.
And now OZ's army has been split into two groups.
Lady Une has been shot.
We don't know whether she's dead or alive.
The Longfeller Foundation, however has branded her as a traitor.
Duo Maxwell and Wufei Chang have succeeded in escaping by using the
internal conflict to their advantage.
However, both their Gundams are only at 80% capability.
The remaining 20% will only take a few adjustments.
It'll be easy enough for them to take care of it themselves with time.
And Trowa Barton?
Since Bi-eight was destroyed he's been reported missing.
I suspect he's dead.
We shouldn't expect him to still be alive.
It's too bad that our fighting force has been diminished, but that's
That's what we know of the present situation.
Did you understand all of it, Heero?
Let me brief you on the condition of the Pro-Treize on this base.
Wait a minute.
Please, why don't you search for Trowa...
He is still alive.
There are a lot of colonies around that area.
He... he has survived.
I'm sure of it.
As a soldier, yes, this is a problem.
That's why the Gundam was taken by them, although it still has that
The cockpit contains a device which augments the brain patterns during
battle to produce greater ability in the pilot.
It would be better if it was a warrior's spirit that went against OZ.
This time, the pilot's target was all wrong.
As soldiers, both of you were immature, and therefore fought each
It really is too bad.
There was enough firepower in Bi-eight, Mericruise, and that Gundam to
destroy the moon base.
Your reflexes and imagination in putting together fighting strategies
have been developing wonderfully.
However, I believe that your ability to focus as a soldier hasn't
really developed well.
That's what this whole system and the incident that followed was all
You have to become the perfect warrior.
Or else you won't be able to survive in this age where Mobile Dolls
play a major part.
It's okay to go crazy.
That's what war is all about.
Did you know about the system in Wing Zero?
I didn't know.
I didn't know that the unit was altered.
I was concentrating on the heavy beam cannon.
So I overlooked the cockpit system.
The beam cannon hasn't even been hooked up yet.
The main weapons are Beam Saber and the Vulcan cannons on the
Are you fighting, Heero?
I can't just let them have it.
Heero, who are the friends and who are the enemies in this war?
That's what I don't understand.
The enemy is the one who tries to kill you and beat you down.
Well then, what if we're making a mistake?
Quatre, we're not the ones making the mistake.
This entire war is crazy in and of itself.
The gates for Block A and B have been discovered.
That huge armored division is coming towards us.
Soldiers of the Pro-Treize faction, we have you surrounded.
We were all on the same side before.
None of us want to lose our lives needlessly.
They have us completely sealed off.
Now they'll negotiate...
I can't promise that all your lives will be spared.
But I can guarantee that some of you will live.
Of course, it all depends on how much co-operation you give us.
This is for you scientists too.
What are your demands?
I want you to hand over the Gundam pilots.
I want to check the battle data of the Gundam.
I believe they've discovered it.
OZ has taken interest in the cockpit system.
I guess I've got to comply with their demands.
I will release the pilots.
I don't think there's anything I can do about how your lives will turn
It's a miracle that we've survived as long as we have until now.
But I guess this is it.
I'm ready for whatever happens.
They first want us to release the hostages.
I guess so.
But none of this will make any difference to Heero.
Heero, is there a problem?
Not at all.
Tell them to begin now.
Let him fight with the mobile doll simulation program.
He's highly skilled.
This must be why he's a Gundam pilot.
Are his levels running greater than that of the Mobile Doll?
He still has more room for growth.
Retrieve the data.
This system is capable of defeating the Mobile Dolls.
War won't even require humans anymore.
Heero, it's people who fight in war.
These people rely on machines to increase their ability to fight.
Heero, this is a mistake.
This Gundam is a mistake.
His combat ability is amazing.
My enemy... my enemy is...
My enemy is the one who tries to kill me...
Do you realize who we're holding hostage?
Use the mobile dolls.
They can take care of him.
This isn't like Heero.
My enemy is the one who tries to kill me.
And those who seek to play with my life.
Everyone here has become my enemy.
Having hostages no longer matters to them anymore.
I gave Heero a target to fight.
In space, the ones who have become unnecessary are OZ and ourselves.
Using that system can drive a man insane.
We, who tried to defeat the Mobile Dolls using this system, are truly
the insane ones.
Let's get out of here.
Do you want to get yourself killed?
I wouldn't mind if they lose.
Especially in this age of war.
Special Envoy Tranto.
Please contact Commander Tsubarov for back-up.
How can I possibly report this in?!
Hey you, where do you think you're going?!
Stop or I'll shoot.
You don't want to die here, do you?
I'll try to stop him from attacking.
With the power at his disposal he can destroy everything in this base.
Trowa warned me of this.
It's not good if the pilot goes out fighting recklessly.
Fighting alone won't bring an end to this war.
That cockpit system increases your battle skills.
However, you lose something in return.
When I went crazy, I lost the most important thing about myself because
of that damned system.
I don't want you to lose the same thing.
I can see clearly who my enemies are.
If you're my enemy, then I shall kill you.
That Gundam is alone.
You shouldn't go out and fight alone.
You won't be able to see every target if you go it alone.
I can see everything clearly I can see who my enemy is.
There's still the self-destruct device left in these two Mobile Suits.
If you don't stop fighting, I'll destroy the Suits right here.
This Mobile Suit isn't the most important thing in space, but there are
things less important.
Space needs the Gundams.
To protect Space.
I will fight!
We're no longer necessary for Space!
We shouldn't fight any longer.
We shouldn't fight any longer.
Who is it?
You must be the one on Earth.
Let's go to Earth.
Earth was kind to us before.
We just couldn't go and die again.
However, this thing has survived again as well.
I don't know whether this is necessary for the future or not.
Well, it all depends on the pilot.
They won't lose using such a Mobile Suit.
