Dude, this vague description could apply to over half of the Gundam series
out there. Does that make them all rehashes of 0079? Besides, the Zeons
didn't build their own version of Gundams in 0079, and the "heavy
consequences for the earth" was mentioned in passing before the show even
started, whereas in Wing it was placed in the grand finale.

So who did I miss other than Zechs...? Relena wasn't exactly a Sayla Mass
clone if you ask me. As for looking the same as characters from the original
series, I kinda doubt that. One thing that really turned me off Wing
initially was the characters' appearance. It just didn't have that smooth
and savvy touch of Yaz.
