Those behind Titans will pull a stunt like Operation Stardust, only this
time directed at resurrecting the Feds. If Zeon completely wipes out the
Feds, maybe a LM-like organization seen in V Gundam would pop up.

The men of Delaz would still carry on.

No more Gundam, Garma lives, Char pissed.

Er... Bernie was never in the Kampfer, and Christina did destroy the Kampfer
without sustaining much injury.

The show would probably end with the first episode, hehehe.

More. Just look at the level of interest in G-Saviour, whose mecha design
is a hybrid between the F91 and the GP series from 0083 and doesn't appear
to offer anything new or radically different. Case closed.

The only thing that made MS warfare not only feasibly but necessary was
due to Minovsky particle's ability to render radar useless. Take that
property away, MS probably wouldn't be as needed as much as they were in
the established UC universe.

Years later a movie/OVA/series comes about and moves the stage to a
colonized plant, and you get to do the same stuff all over again.
