I'd wondered about that one, actually. Is that some point of contention
for the series? Amuro seemed to rarely treat the Gundam as anything but
a machine. OTOH, in some other movies like F-91 the Gundam was certainly
given some potential sentience. Then there's the entire Sentinel

So, WAS the Gundam sent out on some sort of program during that last
episode? It didn't last too long in any case.
