I totally agree. In a lot of ways, these "Earth shattering" events weren't
really necessary for the story. I'm surprised they didn't try harder to have
0083 fit in more with ZETA, which I believe was their intent.

I just watched episode #15 of ZETA GUNDAM, subtitled, and the battle takes
place around San Francisco, particularly the Golden Gate Bridge. This Bay
Area appears deserted and uninhabited. One of the characters says "The city
is no longer there", but there is no explanation in the episode.

What was the reason for this? Was it established in the first series or
anywhere else?
