Storyline

It is the year 0079 of the Universal Century. A war has broken out between the Principality of Zeon, a space colony that wants independence, and the Earth Federation. A teenage boy has to pilot the Federation's new secret weapon when the space colony in which he lives is attacked by Zeon mobile suits, gigantic robots piloted by humans. That new secret weapon is called the Gundam, a far more powerful mobile suit. The story follows Amuro Ray and many other civilians around his age who have to take over a Federation spaceship and become soldiers in order to survive the war against Zeon's forces throughout the One Year War.

BRIGHT NOA-The highest ranking survivor of the remaining crew of the White Base after it is attacked. A strict person, he simply cares about the people serving under him. He shows a natural aptitude for command.

FRAU BOW-Amuro's neighbor and wannabe girlfriend. She takes over as communications officer for the White Base in the later series.

KAI SHIDEN-A cynical pilot for the White Base. Often viewed as a coward.
