Interesting. But I wonder what could precipitate that kind of cataclysmic
event on Earth Sphere in UC or any of the Gundam universe. The only Earth
that survived any thing of that great magnitiude was Gundam X... UC has
been battered several times, and it's not too unlikely that it was battered
several times after Victory Saga, with UNT becoming nothing more than a
laughing stock. Hmm... I could just see it now.
Gundam RX-78-3 is discovered, and quickly overwhelms the opposition with its
beam weapon technology, until Someone else discovers Zeta Gundam and RX-178,
and all heck breaks loose. Then without warning, the errent asteroid Axis
comes out of nowhere with Nu Gundam embedded within. The moonoids excavate
God, Devil, Wing Zero Custom, and Gundam X Divider and all other Gundams
bearing Buster Weapons.
But in the end, to the chagrin of Probe, the Turn-A kicks the snot out of
everything. The End...
