The Universal Century is my favorite Gundam timeline. It is the original, and there would be no Gundam without it. It has the most content, allowing it to cover the widest period of time; this allowed the characters (those that survived, at least) and organizations to grow and change with time. I also appreciated its generally realistic setting and tone (Newtypes aside), in comparison to the other timelines.

Note: Other is listed for the various SD series and for any oddball Gundam manga out there (like the noncanon Gundam vs Ideon).

Note about poll: it is working now!

Mine would be the U.C. because yeah Gundam Wing was ok but U.C. got me truly hooked. The story line in my opinion is one of the best and the mobile suits hands down are the best.

The Universal Century is definitely my favorite of the timelines. As much as I enjoyed watching G Gundam, once I started watching 0083, 08th MS Team, and what little of MSG I watched before it got pulled, I happily tossed both Wing and G to the side in favor of those series. To me, the Universal Century's realism, the adaption of real project proposals from NASA (see O'Neill cylinder) and science, and drawing upon history to inspire the direction of the story was what really caught my attention. When it came to Wing and G, they were merely entertaining giant-robot shows as far as I was concerned.

I figured as much. It takes a pretty big AC fan to use Relena as an avatar. ;)

Yeah I've always liked Relena even during the first episodes of Gundam Wing where she was totally obsessed with Heero. She became more mature as the series continued and by Endless Waltz she was a very developed Character.

I agree with the second sentence.

As much as I love Future Century and Anno Domini, Universal Century has a ton of amazing suits in it. All of the amazing Zeonic suits make up a huge portion of this love, along with Guntank naturally.
