This is exactly what happened to '0079 movie trilogy',
albeit slightly better. Those who've watched the TV
series prior to the movies will surely feel that
something is missing, particularly the camaraderie
between the White Base crew. You won't feel that in
the movies.

The same mistake repeated in Gundam 0083's movie "The
Last Blitz of Zeon". What happened to Kelly Lazyner?
The OVA itself has many plot faults already, and by
condensing it into a 2-hr movie with nothing new added
but 2 lame new songs just doesn't cut it.
