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.
Full Frontal's Pursuit
After repulsing the Kshatriya, Banagher loses consciousness, and along with the Unicorn Gundam, he is retrieved by the Earth Federation Forces warship Nahel Argama. The ship has also rescued Audrey, as well as Takuya and Micott.
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.
Under the Mask
Removing his mask and revealing his face, Frontal requests the cooperation of Banagher, who can activate the Unicorn Gundam. When Banagher refuses, Angelo berates him for killing one of his subordinates.
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.
Battle at Torrington
As they cross the desert, Banagher learns of Zinnerman's tragic past, and how his family were killed by the Federation Forces. He decides to head for the Torrington base, where new information will be disclosed.
A Private War
The Zeon remnants have begun a battle at the Torrington base in Australia, where a colony once fell, in order to obtain the coordinates to the Box that will be revealed there.
