Amuro Ray launches from the SCV-70 White Base in his RX-78-2 Gundam into space where he's joined by a RX-178 Gundam Mk-II, both fire their beam rifles back to back. The MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam transforms out of Waverider mode and then wields its beam saber, its pilot, Kamille Bidan gives a thumbs up. The MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam, piloted by Judau Ashta, combines and fires its High Mega Cannon at the MRX-009 Psyco Gundam and MRX-010 Psyco Gundam Mk-II in their mobile fortress modes. The Psyco Gundam Mk-II transforms into its humanoid mobile suit mode as does its predecessor. They are then joined by the RX-93 ν Gundam, which pulls out a beam saber and sends its funnels to Earth. Out of the light comes the RX-78NT-1 Gundam "Alex" piloted by Christina Mackenzie. At the end, the Alex has Chris, Alfred Izuruha and Bernard Wiseman in its hand.
