    Help design new space colonies to pointlessly drop on the world and kill another half of humanity?

    Ha, ha. No. :v

    More seriously, you can't do anything about Operation British, I know that much. The protagonist isn't going to be deployed in the Battle of Loum, but she does get to make one choice to affect it. Everything after that is fair game, but I'm hoping to scare off the hardcore Zeon apologists who *would* do that before then.

    Actually, fun fact: most of the people who died in the opening week of the war? Spacenoids. Given the population numbers are overwhelmingly tilted toward the colonies, that'd have to be the case even if it weren't explicitly mentioned.

    Well yeah. Zeon are awful people who gas space colonies. Then drop them on Earth and kill half of all mankind. Honestly, I am surprised that the Federation did not literally decide to just kill literally all of Zeon.

    I mean, they kind of DID, but a) around fifteen years later and b) arguably because they ended up holding the villain ball for the sake of covert Japanese nationalism apology. Maybe. Sort of.

    Unicorn fucks a lot of stuff up anyway. But the entire chronology is fucked up owing to forty years of revisiting the universe and, especially, the same single year (and mostly a couple of months within it!) repeatedly.

    Zeon were a good faction run by evil people, it's what Gundam does.

    Mind, I would have gotten the United Maintenance Plan up and running ASAP, had Char posted far from Amuro, and focused on making sure all the Experimental Weapons got properly produced with Good Pilots.

    It's sort of difficult because I want a narrative-heavy quest, but the premise of 'changing the war through engineering' requires not only a firm idea of what that *means* (which means at least loose mechanics), but an encyclopedic knowledge of the One Year War and all its miscellaneous pilots I simply don't possess - and doubt anyone in the West *does*. I'm mostly working off G Generation Genesis, if I'm honest.

    On the topic of Zeon: Where Tomino's early UC narrative is concerned, the theme of Newtypes is supplemented by a thread of individuals being good but large organizations inevitably falling into corruption at best and fascism at worst. Certainly, ZZ Gundam and the original Tomino Gundam novel trilogy play that out, with the perhaps-unintentional theme of 'democracy simply doesn't work'.

    Thus the idea of Newtypes being able to communicate in perfect clarity - a sort of universal democracy, and the tragedy of their use in war and to uphold fascism.

    But then you add in non-Tomino works, and it gets more complicated. Especially with Unicorn, since prior to that non-Tomino UC works didn't overlap so much thematically (see 0080, 0083, 08th MS Team) - but Unicorn directly works with the Newtype myth.

    BTW- How is the update for your current quest coming?

    It's coming along. IRL matters and minor cases of the plotbunnies are interfering and I can no longer recycle content, so the update pace will likely be a bit slower, but I have a reasonable idea of what's going to happen in it.
