Well there was a request for a little more ideological and technical talk,
so how about a few What If scenarios... Feel free to speculate as far into
the future as you want on each one.

... What if Zeon won the OYW? What events could have turned the tide? What
would have happened if the Feddie military was wiped out by Zeon forces?
... What if Kou had succeeded in stopping Gato in time and the Solar System
was able to blow up the colony?
... What If Amuro Rei died when Zeon raided Side 7 trying to destroy the
Gundam prototypes?
... What If Christine in the NT-1 Alex managed to stop Bernie in the Kampfer
without sustaining any serious damage, thus allowing the Alex to be sent to
Amuro after all?
... What If the After Colony timeline was constrained by UC physics? How
much of the story would need to have been changed? Would it still be
recognizable as Wing?
... What if the Turn A Gundam, rather than being the unique Syd Mead design
it is, was instead another tired, boring, derivative Ookawara MS that had
that "we've seen this before" atmosphere to it? Would the show have been
more or less popular?
... What if Minovsky particles did not have the property of obstructing
radar? Would MS development have started, and if it did, would it have
evolved to the same end?
... What if Amuro failed to stop the asteroid fragment from hitting the
Earth in CCA, and Char's Ice Age did come about?

Whew. That should be enough to stir up some real conversation :P
