  • The Colony Public Corporation, Colony SOE, attempts to assassinate Azadistan Princess Marina Ismail and the Middle East representatives, who were sent by the Federation to inspect the conditions of the Middle Eastern workers working in space. Celestial Being intervenes with the assassination and saved Marina and her companions.
  • The 130 year old abandoned exploration ship Europa strangely leaves the Jovian orbit and heads for the Earth Sphere. The ESF intervenes by launching missiles attacks against the ship, but it strangely survives the contact. A group of GNX-803T GN-XIVs, led by Lieutenant Andrei Smirnov, are also sent to intercept. The ship is only destroyed with the intervention of Innovator Captain Descartes Sherman in GNMA-Y0002V Gadelaza. The fragments are left to disintegrate on the atmosphere, but they still ultimately survived and landed on Earth.
  • All over the world, strange occurrences of randomly activating cars, trains, and boats begin to occur involving people with Quantum Brainwaves. There are also some accidents during the retrieval of the debris from the destroyed ship Europa. The ESF scientists, together with Billy Katagiri, investigate the source and the cause of the strange occurrences.
  • The Federation identifies the source of the accidents as that from the metal debris from the destroyed Europa and names it as Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifter or ELS. Since the ELS target those people with Quantum Brainwaves, the ESF immediately prepared an isolation facility to shelter them from the ELS attack.
  • Meanwhile, a massive hole opens up within Jupiter, destroying Io and Ganymede and revealing the increased forces of the ELS. Celestial Being's Feldt Grace calculates that the ELS would arrive at Earth in approximately 95 days, 9 hours, 28 minutes, and 42 seconds. With this the ELS War begins.
  • To stop the ELS threat, the ESF devises a plan. They use Captain Shaman's QBW latency to try and lure the ELS away from Earth and intercept the ELS at Mars. Their plan backfires as Vice Admiral Kim and Descartes Shaman are KIA by the ELS. Also, many GN-XIV's are assimilated.
  • Celestial Being arrives to assist the ESF. Setsuna F. Seiei attempts to communicate with the ELS instead of fighting them, but his brain is damaged by a massive amount of information from the ELS and he is rendered nearly comatose. Setsuna is saved from assimilation by Tieria, but at the cost of the latter's physical body. Celestial Being retreats as the Solbraves, led by Graham Aker cover Celestial Being. The GN-008RE Seravee Gundam II, GNX-903VS Brave (Standard Test Type), and GNX-903VW Brave (Commander Test Type) debut. 00 Raiser Condenser Type, Raphael Gundam, and Seravee Gundam II are lost to the ELS.
  • The GNT-0000 00 Qan[T] is completed and delivered to the Ptolemy 2 Kai. Meanwhile, the ESF establishes a Absolute Defense Line around Celestial Being in order to protect the Earth. The Battle of Earth begins.
  • The ESF's initial wave of missiles slow down the ELS, but they still stand. The ESF enters combat with the ELS using mobile suits, and the ELS themselves start to combine into GN-XIV's, decimating 30% of the ESF forces.
  • Gundams Zabanya and Harute join the battle, but the ELS break through the Absolute Defense Line and head for Earth. Lieutenant Andrei Smirnov and a group of GN-XIV's overload their GN Drive Taus while in Trans-Am and stop a carrier-type ELS from heading towards Earth.
  • Setsuna F. Seiei awakens and launches in the completed 00 Qan[T] in order to commence the dialogues with the ELS. Graham Aker is seemingly KIA, when he overloads the Trans-Am to create an opening for Setsuna, and the Gundam Harute is destroyed.
  • Using the Quantum System, Setsuna F. Seiei commences the dialogues with the ELS The ELS war ends through these dialogues, with the ELS planet transforming into a large desert flower to signify peace. Setsuna and the 00 Qan[T] leave the solar system and travel to the ELS home planet for further understanding.
