A three way battle between ZAFT, Phantom Pain, and the GINN High Maneuver II types, piloted by supporters of the late Patrick Zala, takes place at the debris of Junius Seven while it moves towards Earth. Athrun also helps in a ZAKU but is confronted with memories of his father when it turns out that the terrorists still believe in the path that Patrick Zala had chosen. Despite the efforts of the Joule Team and the Minerva crew, Junius Seven continues to move towards Earth.
Yzak’s team, which rushed to the scene to destroy the descending Junius Seven, was attacked by a mysterious group of GINNs. This accident occurred on purpose. Shinn, Rey, Lunamaria, and Athrun launch from the Minerva to protect the working team, and then joining with Yzak, engage the terrorists.
But then Girty Lue, that was thought to have fled, intervene. Chaos Gundam, Abyss Gundam, and Gaia Gundam join the fight and the battle falls to chaos. Athrun and Yzak overwhelm the enemy in battle. Shinn watches dumbstruck at their abilities. The warriors of Jachin Due are alive and well.
Thanks to their effort, the working units install the meteor breakers and Junius Seven begin to break into pieces. The pieces, however, are still large, and the Minerva decides to enter the atmosphere in order to further break them.
In the meantime, Athrun and Shinn also decide and try to activate the remaining Meteor Breakers. But the terrorists attempt a suicide attack to stop them. The terrorists were those who lost their family in First Alliance-PLANT War and lived in the spirit of Patrick Zala’s vision. Shinn is attacked by suicidal men in the same situation as his. Athrun is met with people who agree with his late father with their lives. The two descend into the atmosphere, shocked and confused.
Notes & Trivia
- In the Remastered version of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, Dearka pilots his Gunner ZAKU Warrior Dearka's Custom instead of the standard green production in original version.
- The scene where Athrun first engages the Chaos pays homage to Char's second fight against Amuro, where the Zaku (Athrun and Char) pushes the Gundam back (Amuro and Sting) before rushing to their face and blaring the Zaku's camera. When the Gundam attempts to respond by firing its head-mounted machine guns, the Zaku responds with a melee attack rather than using its weapons.
