"Legitimate" Zion is only selectable after you've won the game playing as
Zion. This is what I speculate to happen:

<SPOILER ALERT>

If you play as Zion, and achieve complete victory, during the game if you
do use the solar system to blast your dad who's negotiating a settlement
with the feds you will be asked by an aide if you want to "take care" of
any possible threats to your leadership and power. If you said "yes" then
your sister, Krishia, will be placed under arrest. However, she manages to
escape during the confusion and rallied her loyal subjects under the banner
of "Legitimate" Zion (because by now Giren's a power-monger who killed his
father and therefore not a "legitimate" heir to the throne).

To win as "Legitimate" Zion you need to control the headquarters of both Zion
and EMF. Defeat results from Krishia's death, loss of headquarters, or the
other condition (having to do with something going over 150 units).

The good thing about playing as Legitimate Zion is that you don't have a
steep tech tree to climb - you can start cranking out R1A, R2, and RD4 Zakus
right away, on top of the Zaku II C, F, and S types.
