Tekkadan and Turbines go on ahead to Earth, leaving Mikazuki and Yukinojo on the Saisei to complete final adjustments to the Barbatos. But the events aboard the Saisei have greatly affected their respective states of mind.
Thanks to Mikazuki and the Gundam Barbatos, Orga's group has temporarily repulsed Gjallarhorn, though not without many sacrifices. As they are discussing their next move, one of Gjallarhorn's Graze mobile suits again appears at the CGS base.
Kudelia is distressed so many boys have lost their lives because of her. Mikazuki takes her to the farm run by Biscuit's grandmother, where an unexpected encounter awaits.
Kudelia and Tekkadan finally leave Mars behind them and head for Earth. With a ship waiting for them, they attempt to travel by shuttle to a low-orbital station but are attacked by Coral's Gjallarhorn forces.
The members of Tekkadan need a guide in order to reach Earth despite Gjallarhorn's surveillance. To gain a powerful backer, they attempt to negotiate with Teiwaz, which is based in the Jupiter Sphere.
Tekkadan has made contact with Turbines, which runs Teiwaz's transport division. But they find themselves clashing with Turbines over their group's origins and property.
Having demonstrated Tekkadan's strength and legitimacy to Naze, the leader of Turbines, Orga and the others renew their negotiations with Teiwaz. Meanwhile, Atra visits Turbines's warship bringing the frustrated Kudelia with her.
While on patrol, Akihiro and Takaki encounter unknown enemies and engage them in battle. The attackers turn out to be Brewers, a pirate group that operates between Mars and Earth.
Mikazuki and Orga learn that Akihiro's long-lost younger brother is one of the Brewers mobile suit pilots. Tekkadan challenges Brewers in order to get back Akihiro's brother.
The battle with Brewers has cost many lives on both sides. The survivors hold a funeral service to pray for the rebirth of their fallen comrades.
After overcoming many difficulties, Tekkadan is finally about to reach Earth. Its members head for the Dort colony cluster to deliver an item Teiwaz asked them to transport when they were aboard the Saisei.
Just as on Mars, the colonies suffer great disparities with Earth and a protest movement has begun among the increasingly dissatisfied workers. As it gradually intensifies, Tekkadan is caught up in various schemes.
