The year is U.C. 0081, and the world is not as you remember it…….
The One Year War occurred in the same manner as in the normal MSG continuity up until the Battle of A Baoa Qu, where two events went differently. The first changed event was that Zeon’s Solar Ray cannon did not burn out after its first shot against General Revil and Degwin Sodo Zabi. The second changed event was that Kycilia Zabi failed to execute her brother Gihren after he revealed that he murdered their father and died in her attempt at justice. Therefore Gihren remained the overall commander of the Zeon forces at A Baoa Qu throughout the battle. When the tide started turning against Zeon, Gihren ordered the Solar Ray to fire at Earth, hoping to crush the Federation’s resolve. Instead it just caused the Feddies to attack even fiercer. Gihren ordered the Solar Ray to fire on the Federation ships, even though friendly forces were engaged with them, causing massive losses to both sides. It was then that Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, who had already fought their mobile suit battle and were engaged in their epic swordfight, had their fight interrupted by Char’s sister Sayla and were told of the events occurring on the battlefield. Amuro and Char decide to put off their duel and go after Gihren together, getting into a pair of Rick-Doms and fighting their way to where Gihren was, at his flagship the Dolos. Meanwhile, the White Base and her crew decided to go after the Solar Ray cannon. Gihren, seeing that the battle would be lost, ordered the Solar Ray cannon to fire on Earth repeatedly, hoping to use that as a distraction while he retreated from the battlefield. The Solar Ray managed to get off 6 more shots to the Earth before it was destroyed by the Federation forces lead by the White Base. Amuro and Char managed to stop Gihren’s escape, with Char finishing him off much like he did Kycilia Zabi in the normal MSG continuity, but with the Rick-Dom’s Beam Bazooka instead of a regular-sized one. With all the Zabis dead, Amuro and Char prepare to finish their battle to the death but before they can start, Char receives several messages from nearby friendly Zeon forces, asking him what they should do now that all the leaders are dead, not knowing that he was the one that killed off Gihren. Char decided to put the lives of his allies ahead of his feud with Amuro and calls for a retreat to Side 3, with most of the Zeon forces acknowledging his orders. Amuro decides not to follow Char, and instead goes back to make sure Sayla and the rest of the White Base crew made it out alive. The rest of the Federation forces are too disorganized and battle-weary to follow and finish off the Zeon forces and so ends the Battle of A Baoa Qu.
One Month Later….
The Federation fleet has been repaired, resupplied, and reorganized at Luna II and was waiting on orders from Earth. They received their first communication from Earth since the Battle of A Baoa Qu and have just found out how hectic things are groundside. Two of the Solar Ray attacks hit Brazil, wiping out Jaburo and most of the Federation’s leadership. Two of the other attacks hit the Atlantic Ocean, causing massive tsunamis which caused even more destruction. The other 3 attacks hit the U.S. Midwest, Poland, and Western Russia. With most of the E.F. leadership dead and all the devastation that has occurred on Earth, the remaining Federation leaders order the space fleet to just stand-by for further orders while they get the situation under control on Earth. Many of the soldiers within the fleet are not happy with these orders, wishing to go finish off Zeon at Side 3 for revenge. Seeing a golden opportunity to gain power, Jamitov Hyman and his lackey Bask Om rally the Federation Fleet, demanding vengeance on Zeon, and gain control over 70% of the fleet. The remaining 30% of the fleet, under the command of Blex Forer and Bright Noa, have seen enough bloodshed and don’t wish to continue the war. Jamitov-led forces go off to finish off the Zeon threat (and secretly Jamitov and Bask intend to wipe out Side 3 altogether) while the Blex-led forces remain at Luna II.
Meanwhile the surviving Zeon forces from A Baoa Qu arrived at Side 3 in complete disarray and with morale at an all time low. It would seem evitable that the Feddie forces would chase them down eventually and finish them off, and with the Zabis and most of the top leadership dead at Solomon and A Baoa Qu no one was around to rally the people in defense of the Zeon homeland. It was in this darkest hour that Char Aznable decided to reveal his true identity as Casval Rem Deikun, son of Zeon Zum Deikun, Zeon’s founding father via a live TV broadcast to all of Side 3. Char would then reveal his hand in the deaths of Garma and Gihren Zabi, done in retribution for the murder of his father by the Zabis. Char denounced the Zabi family and their actions throughout the war, claiming that they had led the Zeon people astray from the path which his father wished for them to take, their destiny to lead mankind into the space to become Newtypes. He then pleads with the Zeon people to follow him and fight for their destiny, their way of life, and their future. Most of the Zeon people and soldiers decide to follow Char and prepare for the coming Federation attack, while two groups decide to leave Side 3. One of these groups is the Delaz Fleet (the same one from Gundam 0083) which was unwilling to stay and defend the Zeon homeland if it meant being under the command of the man who killed their beloved commander Gihren Zabi. The other group was a group of Pro-Zabi supporters who decided to head for Axis
Battle of Side 3
The Jamitov-led Federation fleet arrived at Side 3, ready to finish off the Zeon threat once and for all. However, instead of the weak and decimated Zeon forces they expected to find, there stood a proud and mighty Zeon fleet ready to fight for their homeland, led by the new leader of the rechristened Republic of Zeon, Casval Rem Deikun (Char Aznable). The battle had barely begun when the Blex-led forces arrived on the scene. Surprised by the new arrivals, both sides had retreated back to their lines to regroup, but when the Earth forces realized that the arrivals were friendly forces, they decided to continue their attack. However, something unexpected happened. The Blex-led forces demanded that the other Earth forces leave Side 3 at once, and declared that the One Year War ended at A Baoa Qu, and that any more fighting would just be pointless violence and bloodshed. Jamitov cursed Blex and ordered the fleet to advance anyways, but then Blex announced that if they took one more step towards Side 3, that his forces would join those of Zeon’s. Blex then condemned Jamitov and Bask, knowing that their intentions were to wipe out Side 3 and all of Zeon in order to be seen as the big heroes that ended the “evil scourge of Zeon.” Blex would then warn the Zeon forces not to continue the fight or they would instead join up with the rest of the Earth forces to fight Zeon after all. Having grown weary of war himself, Casval ordered his forces to return to Side 3 and announced that he too recognized the end of the One Year War at A Baoa Qu. Seeing no other choice, Jamitov ordered his forces to retreat, but not before declaring that he would have his revenge on Blex and Casval.
