isn't this the storyline of MechWarrior?

I guess one reason why Gundam doesn't deviate too much in its story line is
because they don't want to be stepping into the storylines of other popular
mecha stories. they want to have an identity of their own and don't want to
be branded as a copy cat.

if the Zeon avoid planetary colonization, where do they get their resources
to build colonies?

in my opinion, the Zeon would colonize other planets, the only reason why
they live in colonies is that there isn't any other planet inhabitable by
humans. sure, we could terraform Mars, but it takes about a thousand years
to terraform, right?

knowing Bandai, they wouldn't need a new series to do that ^_^
