Messiah is a mobile space fortress in the series Gundam SEED Destiny.

Combat Abilities

As its name suggests, the Messiah base is heavily armed and defended. Its most powerful weapon is Neo-GENESIS, a smaller variant of the massive GENESIS superweapon used in the Bloody Valentine War. Although smaller, the weapon is still capable of destroying a fleet in a single shot. For point defense the fortress is armed with quad laser-cannon turrets. Besides these turrets, the station is also equipped with a powerful beam shield, capable of engulfing and thus protecting the whole station from weapons fire. The shield can however be penetrated by Mobile Weapons. Lastly, the fortress is protected by a large army of ZAFT warships and mobile suits.


Messiah began its "life" as a mining asteroid, which, after having been stripped of all valuable resources, was hollowed out and turned into a fortress, some times after the first war. Thanks to its large engines, the fortress is capable of independent movement.

In CE 74 PLANT Supreme Council Chairman Gilbert Durandal headed to this base after he left Earth and from there commanded the attacks on the Earth Alliance' Daedalus lunar base and the Requiem superweapon. Afterwards the fortress headed to the moon where it engaged the forces of the Three Ships Alliance. Using its Neo-GENESIS weapon, Messiah is able to destroy several ships which had defected from the EA. While the superweapon began to charge, a large space battle broke out between ZAFT forces and Alliance forces around it. Neo-GENESIS is then fired again which not only destroyed several Alliance but also ZAFT ships. Kira Yamato, who was in his Strike Freedom docked with his assigned METEOR unit, and proceed along with Eternal, to inflict heavy damage on the fortress. He then entered the base and confronted Durandal, who is eventually shot by Rey Za Burrel. Both Rey and Minerva captain Talia Gladys decided to stay on the fortress, while the station descended onto the surface of the moon, before finally crashing itself onto the lunar surface. This event thus marked the end of the Second Bloody Valentine War.
