: Yes. We'll hook a space cruise booster we found in Luna 2 onto a shuttle.
: A space cruise booster... We used one of those in the last war, too, didn't we.
: Sure, but how will you avoid the space debris floating between the Earth and moon?
: Yeah. There's tons of wreckage still left over from our final battle with Bodolza.
: My flying'll keep us clear of all that, no problem.
: Yikes, you really like to push your luck, don't you?
: I don't need to hear that from you.
: Duo... I know your skill will get us through safely.
: Y'know, I think that's the nicest thing you've ever said to me.
: If all goes well, we can reach the moon before Dekim's Adrastea does.
: Alright. Just stay on the safe side, okay?
: (Telling them that won't accomplish much...)
: ...Captain Gomez, I'll go with Heero and the others.
: No, we need you on board this ship along with Judau and Usso, to keep it safe.
: (.........) ...Understood.
: It's about time for us to head out. We can't be late for the party.
: Oh, and no hard feelings if I don't leave anything for you guys.
: Oh, hey Four.
: Heero and the others have left.
: Yeah... They should be able to save Relena and protect the moon facility, no problem...
: Say... Who is it that's on the moon?
: ...I guess there's no hiding anything from you, is there. Fa's on the moon.
: ...What's she doing right now?
: She's helping out with Project Aegis at Mao Industries.
: I see... And you're worried about her?
: Yeah... But I'm sure she's in capable hands with Heero and the others.
: About 10 minutes!
: If only Ryune were here...
: But didn't Ryune and the Valcione go missing?
: Yes, they did... She vanished suddenly, right before our very eyes...
: I find the 'sudden' part hard to believe, but...
We have gotten other similar reports...
: For now, let's focus on how to fend off an
enemy with such little firepower...
: Ring, prepare my R-Gun for launch.
: Eh...? That's been here!?
: Yes. The Titans appropriated the other R-series machines, but... I let them think that my R-Gun was scrapped in the last battle, and brought it here, to the Moon Cradle, in secret.
: Also... Nina, what about the Gundams that Heero and the others left here?
: They're ready to launch at any time.
: Don't. If you go out there, this Moon Cradle will become a battlefield. Project Aegis's microwave transmitter isn't the only thing here. There are thousands of people asleep in the artificial hibernation facility underground!
: ...So we should keep the enemy from forcing their way in here, right?
: But you going out there alone won't...!
: This is my type of mission. That's why I'm here, and not with Ryusei and co.
: Don't worry. I'll buy some time until the Lean Horse team shows up.
: Then I'll calculate Heero's arrival time, and prepare the Wing Zero and others for launch.
: Please do so.
: Viletta, I'm going with you!
: (.........) ...Leave the dangerous part to me.
: No, as someone who was also a participant in the Balmar War... I can't let the people of the Earth Sphere get exposed to any further danger!
: ...Alright, let's go!
: Y-yes, ma'am!
