T.Y. Minovsky was tech advisor for the Autonomous Republic of Zeon's MS Plan. Gihren Zabi wanted a tour of the site that he was working at and wanted to cancel the project because it provided unsatisfactory results. T.Y. Minovsky honorably introduced himself to Dozle Zabi and agreed with the validity of Gihren's points about the critical power issue Zeon's mobile suits then had. Wanting to avoid the cancellation of the project, T.Y. Minovsky explained to Gihren that a compact fusion reactor was well within their reach. He presented, to the two Zabi brothers, blueprints of the MI-11 he drew up.
Dr. Minovsky had secretly sent a video of an MS-04 Bugu test flights to the Federation Forces because he now wished to defect to the Federation from the Autonomous Republic of Zeon. This video was also a warning to the Federation government. In the Earth Federation General HQ in Brasilia, Admiral Gopp showed the video to Dr. Minovsky's former student, Tem Ray. The instant Tem saw the video, he knew that Dr. Minovsky had finally completed the mobile suit that he had dreamed of for so many years. Outside of the room where they viewed the video, Admiral Gopp informed Tem Ray of his mentor's defection and asked him to go to the moon to assist with Dr. Minovsky's journey from Zeonic in Granada to Anaheim Electronics in Von Braun.
