The story follows the plot of the Gundam Wing TV series very closely, incorporating plot elements introduced in the prequel manga, Episode Zero, and the concurrently-running photonovel, Frozen Teardrop. Therefore, the manga acts as a retelling of the original animated TV series with all backstory and sidestory plot elements incorporated, as the 'complete' story.
- Episode.01: OPERATION METEOR (PART.01)
- The year is After Colony 195, and the space colonies began rising up against the oppressive United Earth Sphere Alliance. On the 6th of April, a group of Alliance Space Leos surround a rebel hideout in the L2 Colony Cluster. However, an unknown mobile suit emerges from the hideout and easily destroys the Leos. On Earth, Lady Une, an officer of the Organization of the Zodiac, reports the appearance of the unknown mobile suit to Treize Khushrenada, OZ's leader. Treize realizes that the mobile suit is a Gundam, created to carry out Operation Meteor. He then relays the information to Zechs Merquise, an OZ ace pilot. Back in space, Duo Maxwell, the Gundam's pilot, and Professor G, the Gundam's creator, are being pursued by an OZ fleet from the Space Fortress Bulge. Unable to shake their pursuers, Professor G decides that they have no choice but to enlist the help of the Barton Foundation, and plots a course to L2-V08744, Duo's home colony. However, Duo is angered by this, saying that he'd rather die than take part in a massacre.
- Episode.02: OPERATION METEOR (PART.02)
- Duo attempts to destroy his Gundam to avoid taking part in a massacre but is prevented by Professor G, who then suggests Duo take the mobile suit to Earth and carry out Operation Meteor his own way. At the same time, on April 7, A.C. 195, four other Gundams are sent to Earth as well, with each of their pilots also intending to carry out their own versions of Operation Meteor. Most of the Gundams make it to Earth successfully, but the winged unit sent from the L1 Colony Cluster is intercepted during its descent by Zechs' assault carrier. The Gundam destroys Zechs' support Aries MS with its buster rifle, but Zechs manages to grapple the Gundam with his Mk. IV Leo "Greif" and sink it into the Pacific Ocean.

At the same time, OZ begins a worldwide takeover of all Alliance bases. Zechs uses his new Tallgeese MS to reclaim his homeland, the Sanc Kingdom. When Heero learns from Sally that New Edwards is targeted for destruction by an orbiting missile satellite, he uses his Gundam to intercept and destroy the missile.

During the assault, Zechs battles Heero's Gundam with the Tallgeese. However, Lady Une sets her trap in motion when she threatens to use the recently-captured Space Fortress Bulge to destroy the colonies unless the Gundam pilots surrender (to Zechs and Noin's disgust). Heero's mentor Doctor J responds and agrees to surrender, but refuses to hand over the Gundam he created. Understanding Doctor J's implied order, Heero self-destructs his Gundam along with himself.

Heero ultimately defeats Zechs, but spares his life for Relena's sake. He then prepares to self-destruct the Wing Zero, along with himself, to destroy the main power reactor of the descending Libra block. However, Zechs intervenes and uses the Epyon's beam sword to destroy the reactor himself, seemingly sacrificing himself instead. This only destroys half of the Libra block, but Heero then uses the Wing Zero's twin buster rifle (equipped with the "Drei Zwerg") to destroy the block's remains during atmospheric re-entry. This brings an end to the Eve Wars. In the aftermath, the Earth Sphere Unified Nation is created to form a new and improved government between Earth and the colonies, and Relena takes over her late foster father's position as Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs in order to help maintain the peace.
