In UC 0087, seven years after the end of the One Year War and following the events of Operation Stardust, the Earth Federation establishes the elite counter-insurgency division called the Titans to hunt down remaining pockets of Zeon resistance. The Titans become overzealous in their mission, resorting to brutal methods to achieive their goals, becoming nothing more than ruthless tyrants with an ambition to rule the Earth Sphere. Two anti-Titans resistance groups, the AEUG (Anti-Earth Union Group) and their Earth-bound counterparts Karaba, form to unite various existing forces in the struggle against the facist-like Titans. Their members consist of renegade soldiers of the Earth Federal forces, former soldiers of the Principality of Zeon and militia from space colonies.

Reccoa is captured just after landing in the Amazon. She is rescued by Kai Shiden, who piloted the Guncannon (RX-77) during the One Year War, but is now a war correspondent working with AEUG. Kei tells Reccoa that the Titans are moving their HQ out of Jabrow and together they plot to capture a base radio station and transmit this information to the Ahgama. Camille is spending most of his spare time fixing Haro, so much so that he's late for a command staff meeting. Won Lee is outraged by Camille's tardiness and backtalk and "disciplines" the boy by beating him up. Camille recovers in the men's locker room where Quattro, Appori and Roberto are getting ready to test the new Anaheim Electronics Type-100 (MSN-100). Quattro is planning a raid on Granada to capture supplies and the New Salamis-type battleship being built there. Camille joins him in the Mark-II 03. Aboard the Alexandria, Basque's personal aide Jamaican Daningan is also inspecting the new Marasai (RMS-108), which are also built by Anaheim Electronics. Corcoran spots the AEUG Mobile Suits on the lunar surface while monitoring Ammon and orders an attack on the Ahgama with a squad of Hizacks. Emma goes out in the Rick Dias to defend the Ahgama.

The Ahgama prepares to attack Grips 2 before the Colony Laser can be deployed. Rosamia, like her predecessor Four, displays wild mood swings and headaches, behaving childishly much of the time. She especially displays a childish fear of doctors, which makes Emma suspicious. At Grips 2, Reccoa is enchanted by Scirocco, who gives her the Messala to lead a squad of Barzams against the Ahgama. Camille recognizes the Messala, which was last piloted by Sara. He and Emma are shocked to learn that it's now piloted by Reccoa, who is unhappy about changing sides but certain of Scirocco's success. Z-Gundam pins the Messala against an asteroid and Camille tries to talk to Reccoa, but she rejects him and escapes. Basque fires the Colony Laser at Side 2, destroying Bunch 18 the same way Giren Zabi destroyed the Peace Conference during the One Year War.

Reccoa will fly an old Gelgoog salvaged from the derelict EUG ship Republic to the Jupiteris, where she will present herself as a stateless refugee survivor of a deep-space accident. Camille fears for Reccoa's safety after the Jabrow fiasco, but Fa defends her -- Reccoa knows what she's doing. Later, Reccoa admits to Fa that part of the reason she's taking the mission is to regain her confidence. Fa becomes jealous when Camille goes out in Z-Gundam to fly escort for Reccoa. Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Scirocco continues to charm Sara as her training nears completion. The Titans track Reccoa's approach and Sara goes out in the Messala. Camille watches from an asteroid as Reccoa enters the Jupiteris, where her cover story is accepted. Scirocco visits the Jupiteris on an inspection tour. Sara discovers Z-Gundam at the same time that Scirocco discovers Reccoa. As Sara closes in on Camille, she is attacked in turn by Fa, who has followed Camille in the Methuss.

Aboard the Radish, Henken talks with Emma about the progress of the G-Defenser test. He is reluctant to let her go back to the Ahgama. Aboard the Ahgama, Bright is preparing for another Titan attack. Katsu talks to Emma about becoming a Mobile Suit pilot. Yazan attacks and Emma in the Mark-II leads a squad of Nemos to defend the ship. Against orders, Katsu takes off in the G-Defenser to help Emma against Yazan, but ends up distracting her at a critical moment instead. Camille senses the battle and, after an argument with Bright (who is again reminded of his old friend Amuro), gets Z-Gundam ready to launch. The Mark-II and G-Defenser link up to form Super Gundam. Katsu is almost killed by a Hizack and ejects, taking refuge in the derelict Zion Gwajin-type battleship, abandoned during the One Year War and now adrift in the middle of the new battle zone. Emma finds Katsu in the wreckage just as the Hizack finds her. Meanwhile, Z-Gundam and the Gaplant have used up all their ammunition and now duel with energy swords. Emma and Katsu are captured by the Hizack as Camille ambushes Yazan in another part of the ship. The crossfire between the Alexandria and Ahgama gets intense and a stray shot destroys the Hizack. Katsu reactivates one of the Gwajin's "antique" Gelgoog (MS-14) to help Camille, who appears to be losing to Yazan. The Gaplant appears to retreat with Z-Gundam and Super Gundam in hot pursuit, but it's all part of Yazan's plan. He sets Jamaican up to take a direct hit on the Alexandria's bridge from a blast aimed at his Gaplant.

Yazan leads a Mobile Suit strike force against the Ahgama and Z-Gundam. Moira counsels Jared to curb his obsession with vengeance -- against Yazan as well as Camille. Bright reprimands Camille and Fa for letting the children get into the Mobile Suit launch bay. Jared and Moira wait in ambush in the remains of a derelict colony while Yazan and the rest of the Titan force herds the Ahgama their way. A Titan fleet is detected by the Ahgama's radar just as it launches its own Mobile Suit force and both the Ahgama and the Radish retreat toward the abandoned colony. Camille and Fa turn back to defend the ships while Emma and Appori lead the AEUG counterforce against Yazan. Jared and Moira spring their trap, focusing on the Ahgama. Z-Gundam squares off against Jared's Gabthley while Fa's Mark-II keeps Moira's Gabthley at bay. Camille retreats into the colony to draw Jared away from the Ahgama. Fa sees Haro floating near a breach in the Ahgama's hull and goes after it to make sure the children are okay. Camille goes to help her and almost gets her killed by Jared and Moira. As Fa is wounded by their crossfire, Camille's Newtype power explodes in a burst of rage, destroying half the Titan Mobile Suits. A mental warning from Emma saves Camille from Jared's Mega Cannon. Camille counters with the Mega Bazooka, but Moira shields Jared with her Gabthley, taking the full force of the blast herself. Jared attacks the Ahgama in a mindless rage, only to have his Gabthley shot to pieces by Emma. Yazan accepts that the plan has failed and retreats. Jared sees an apparition of Moira as his drifts into deep space in his wrecked Gabthley. Bright thanks Emma for saving the Ahgama, but she credits Camille.

Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Yazan and Jared get into an argument that disrupts the Mobile Suit launch bay. Moira takes Jared aside and cautions him on the danger of crossing Yazan -- look what happened to Jamaican. She reminds him of Scirocco's plan and their part in it. The Ahgama descends toward the atmosphere as the Audomura ascends toward space -- Quattro will fly a shuttle between them. Titan Mobile Suits, led by Yazan's Gaplant, attack as the shuttle comes in range. Emma leads a counterforce in the Mark-II, but Bright is still forced to move the Ahgama ahead of schedule. Jared and Moira lead a squad of Hizacks in their Gabthleys. Sara is in a Hizack armed with a Mega Bazooka, Moira has the booster pack for it. Sara is so intent on destroying Z-Gundam that she unconsciously broadcasts her intentions in a wave of Newtype energy. Katsu and Emma respond, forming Super Gundam and sending a warning to Camille, who's attention is being distracted by Jared until Sara is ready to fire. Camille disrupts Sara's concentration with the same Newtype mental contact he used on Four in Psyco Gundam. Sara's shot goes wild, destroying Quattro's shuttle. The crew compartment is intact, however, and the Ahgama picks it up as the Titans retreat. Sara, like Four, is both disturbed and intrigued by the intimate contact with Camille, who is now trying to make up with Fa.

As the Ahgama approaches the Moon, Emma is also confirmed as an AEUG regular soldier. Jared assumes command of Layla's Galbaldy-Beta and, under the pretext of a post-repair test flight, sets out to ambush the Ahgama. Quattro spies on Emma and Camille over the command video circuit and overhears Camille express his belief that Quattro is really Char Aznable. The conversation is interrupted by Jared's attack. Camille goes out to defend the Ahgama in the Mark-II 03 with Quattro backing him up in the Mark-II 01. Camille is taken aback by the fighting style of the Galbaldy-Beta -- Jared was trained by Layla and uses many of her techniques. The battle moves to the Moon's surface, with Camille entirely on the defensive against a maddened Jared. The Ahgama makes it safely to the far side of the Moon and, as it docks safely at Ammon spaceport, Quattro joins the battle and drives Jared off just as he is about to finish Camille. Later, Quattro visits AEUG financier Won Lee in Ammon City and together they decide on the next target: Titan HQ base at Jabrow. Meanwhile, Camille and Emma are en route to the "space junkyard" at Erica when they're attacked by a Titan patrol led by Corcoran Cocker. During the ensuing skirmish, Camille trips over the remains of Haro, the robot Amuro Rei built for Fra Bow during the One Year War. On impulse, he takes it with him when they escape.

During a lull in the fighting, Camille is summoned from the rec room to the bridge for an important assignment. He is to carry an offer of alliance to Axis. Katsu objects openly and is thrown into the brig along with Shinta and Qum, who joined in his disruption. Camille flies Z-Gundam under a flag of truce to the Gwadan, where Haman greets him royally. AEUGO is asking for her assistance in destroying the Colony Laser that threatens them both. Haman flies to the Ahgama in her new Qubeley (AMX-004) and agrees to the alliance on the condition that "Zion" (Side 3) is "restored" under Axis and that "Char Aznable" acknowledges Minerva (and, by implication, Haman) as its rightful ruler. Quattro reluctantly agrees. At Grips 2, Basque is preparing to fire the Colony Laser at Granada. Fa joins Katsu and the children in the brig to watch over them, which insults Katsu no end. The Ahgama's Mobile Suits spearhead the assault and, sensing that the tide is turning against them, Fa and Katsu join them. The Gwadan fires a broadside that disables the Colony Laser's core pulse engine, preventing it from rotatating for a clear shot at Granada. Haman has kept her end of the bargain and saved the day. The Ahgama links up with the Gwadan for Quattro's promised audience with Minerva and Haman. "Char Aznable" pledges allegiance to Zion, but "Quattro Baijina" recalls his repeated disclaimer: "I am QUATTRO now!"

She is drawn to Camille, whom she insists is her brother, and forces herself on the party, refusing to part company with him. During a rustic wagon-ride, Rosamia shows Camille a picture of her family, from whom she was separated during the One Year War. The boy she identifies as her brother could easily be mistaken for Camille. Quattro, patrolling in the Type-100, is attacked by a pair of Custom Hizacks. Camille senses Quattro's situation and takes everyone on a boat ride on the lake -- Camille and the children in one boat, Fa and Rosamia in the other. A stray shot holes the colony and the battle moves inside. At the lake, Camille and Rosamia trade places and he and Fa row into the reeds. Rosamia gets Minerva to join her and the children, much to Haman's dismay. Haman and Camille catch sight of each other as the battle enters their area. Another wild shot blows a hole in the "bottom" of the lake, with life-threatening results for everyone. Haman reclaims Minerva and gets away while Quattro repairs the hull.

Camille, Emma, Fa and Quattro meet with the doctor, who tells them that Rosamia is an artificial Newtype. The Titans have given her false memories in hopes of preventing the personality breakdown that destroyed Four, but their plan backfired when Camille turned up looking like her fictitious older brother. The similarity of surnames -- Vidan and Vadam -- may also have been a factor. In any case, Rosamia is both a powerful and inherently unstable Newtype. Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Basque orders a test of the Bound Dock (NRX-055) with Rosamia as pilot. AEUGO goes on the offensive to keep the Titans too busy to use their Colony Laser, attacking a flotilla en route to Bunch 13 (Side 2). Rosamia attacks Fa's Methuss, but is driven back by Z-Gundam. Rosamia is torn between her conditioned hatred of Z-Gundam and her implanted love of her "brother" Camille. As they drift into Bunch 13, he tries to win her over, citing how much her playmates Qum and Shinta miss her. Meanwhile, Quattro finds a pair of Hizacks attaching a G-3 gas bomb to the hull and blasts it. Camille almost wins Rosamia over, but her controllers arrive in a prototype Bound Dock and activate the psycho-wave amplifier used with Four at Kilimanjaro. Rosamia tranforms her Bound Dock into its grotesque combat mode, a mechanical monster four times the size of Z-Gundam, but as before Camille can't bring himself to kill her.

#25 - Crisis at Side Two

Season 1 - Episode 29 - Aired 9/21/1985

Radish orbits the Moon over Von Braun City as Ahgama goes on alone to Side 2, where a minor revolt is in progress and a Titan raid is expected at any time. Quattro takes the Type-100 to Von Braun City to brief AEUG's backers on his mission to Earth. Bright gets word that the Alexandria carries the same G-3 nerve gas used on Bunch 30. Camille is teased for hanging around waiting for Reccoa and goes to see Fa, who has been given charge of the refugee children Shinta and Qum now that Reccoa has returned. Jared briefs his troops on their mission at Bunch 25 (Side 2) -- they will indeed be using G-3. The mayor of Bunch 25 is having second thoughts now that the Titan force is known to be on the way. The Alexandria approaches the colony disguised as an asteroid. The Ahgama opens fire on it and launches Camille in Z-Gundam and Reccoa in the Methuss as the Titan Hizacks attach the G-3 canister to Bunch 25's hull. Jared's Gabthley goes after Z-Gundam, taking the battle into the colony. Katsu, in a Nemo, prevents Moira's Gabthley from destroying Z-Gundam. Reccoa destroys the G-3 canister and the Titan forces withdraw. The Ahgama docks with the colony and Bright lectures the mayor on the futility of trying to deal with the Titans.
