  No idea. The only place we're even told he was sentenced to die is in the
Shindosha timeline. I was talking about this with some friends the other
day, and we concluded that his capital crime was, in short, "Not appearing
in Z Gundam." :-)

  Nope. The only other Gundam comics released in English are the Blue
Destiny comic being serialized in MixxZine, and the Gundam 0079 comic now
being released by Viz.

  The stated reason was that it gives the impression that Earth Federation
= United Nations. Since the Federation is a single world nation, not a
UN-style alliance of independent nations, Sunrise decided to disown the
term (which was borrowed from Macross in the first place).
