On the day of the ceremony marking the transition from the A.D. to the Universal Century calendar, the space station Laplace, official residence of the Earth Federation prime minister, is destroyed by a terrorist bombing.
Evading Marida, who has come to take Audrey back to the Garencieres, Banagher finally manages to get Audrey to the mansion in Magallanica where she hopes to meet with Cardeas, the current head of the Vist Foundation.
They Called it Gundam
The negotiations between Cardeas and Zinnerman break down as a mobile suit battle begins inside the colony, claiming the lives of Banagher's classmates.
Clash With The Red Comet
Daguza has taken Mineva (or Audrey) hostage, but Frontal rejects his demand for a ceasefire and declares that he will sink the Nahel Argama. In order to save Audrey, Banagher sorties in the Unicorn Gundam.
The Battle at Palau
Together with the ECOAS special forces group, the Nahel Argama of the Earth Federation Forces' Londo Bell unit begins an operation to recapture Banagher and the Unicorn Gundam.
Laplace, Where It All Began
Marida, now a prisoner of the Federation, tells Banagher to keep on saying, "Even so..." She says that he has the power to awaken another system that sleeps within the Unicorn Gundam.
The Unicorn Gundam reaches the wreckage of Laplace, and the La+ Program's seal is broken. A speech given 96 years earlier by Ricardo Marcenas, the first prime minister of the Earth Federation government, begins playing back.
From the Scorching Earth
After saving Banagher and the Unicorn Gundam, which were falling toward Earth, the Garencieres crash-lands in the Western Sahara. Meanwhile, Zeon remnants who have been hiding on Earth launch an attack on the Earth Federation capital.
