The Black Sarena is also from Nadesico Movie, although I haven't seen it, so I
know about as much as you do.

Actually, I think it'll got more like this. Yurika fires the gravity blast
cannon, and toasts the White Base, while the Aestis and the MS mix it up. The
MS are overall slightly better in the offensive department, but the Aestis have
their own gravity distortion fields (as does the Nadesico). As long as the
Aestis can keep their speed up, they'll "Gekigan-Flare" any MS that make the
mistake of getting too close to them. But they can only keep moving like that
for so long before they'll move out of range of the Nadesico.
The real question, of course, is how good are beam sabers at cracking gravity
distortion fields? If they can pierce the field, and corner the Aestis when
they slow down (and that's what you have new types for =P) then its game over
