SUMMARY

It is the later half of U.C.0096. The Earth Federation government, threatened by the existence of the “psycho frame,” organizes the “Mastema” special forces unit under Lieutenant JG Mehmet Merca who is under the direct control of the Intelligence Bureau. He is handed down vital instructions to infiltrate and investigate a severed portion of Axis floating in the Earth Sphere.

Among the members of the investigation team accompanying him are two civilians: Arlette Almage and Danton Hyleg, a former engineer and test pilot for the Principality of Zeon and Neo Zeon.

The investigation team that infiltrated Axis comes under attack by a new model “Gundam” of the private group “Birnam” at a base where no one should be. Although Danton and Arlette fight back with a red Zaku III Custom whose development they were once involved in, they encounter various critical stages.

Among them are certain “feelings” Arlette hid in her heart as she heads for the remains of the Sazabi, left abandoned on the surface of Axis…
