The Albion arrives at Anaheim Electronics' La Vie En Rose research ship to get the GP03 Dendrobium Stamen, where they are met by designer Lucette Auduvie and Federation officer Nakaha Nakato.

The Albion lands in the lunar city of Von Braun to retrofit the Unit 1 for space. The crew takes some time off to wander the city. Kou gets upset after Monsha teases him and runs out into the city streets where he gets beaten up for being Federation. He wakes up to meet a one-armed Zeon pilot, Kelly Layzner, and his girlfriend Latuera. Kelley think that Kou is a deserter. In his garage, he is working on a mobile suit of his own and warns Kou to stay away from it, but Kou helps him out anyways. Latuera asks Kou why he is helping out his enemy, for the war is not over in Kelly's mind. Kou later overhears Kelly talking to Cima about selling the mobile suit he's been working on and the two men get into a fight. Nina arrives, looking for Kou (who had been gone for a few days now) but Kou says he has unfinished business and goes back to help Kelly complete his mobile suit anyways.

Kou kills Cima in the fracas. The Solar System II fires, but Gato destroys the command ship, resulting in a weaker blast that barely damages the colony. As it breaks through the solar array, Gato enters the colony and inputs the final course corrections. Kou tries to stop him, but Nina interferes and protects Gato as they leave, revealing that they were once lovers. The two pilots continue to fight after Gato has Karius bring Nina to safety. The Solar System II remnants fire again, with many forces on both sides destroyed as the colony crashes into the Midwest.

Several weeks later, Hymem and Bask Om announce the creation of the Titans. All records of Operation Stardust and the GDP are erased, including Kou's one-year hard labour sentence.
