    Last time on MAQuest, you fought your first Mobile Armor boss, a Bigro, and defeated it, capturing it and its pilot, one Kelly Layzner, and finally brought Diez over to your side! Good job! Now you approach the Federation's last bastion, Luna II...

    You step off the ship, placing your feet one the first Federation Territory you've visited in 4 years. You don't know why, but it feels different to you from Zeon "soil."

    You go to Burning, and ask. "Well, we're getting fitted with some engine upgrades, so we should be able to reach Earth by tomorrow, if not tonight. And sure, they should be able to spot us on some scrap for all our stuff. There's apparently a damaged ship in, so there should be some extra that we can borrow. As for Mobile Armor? No, I don't know anyone here who's good at piloting. Maybe the mercenary could, but I don't know."

    You go to the distribution plant, and manage to get some scrap.

    Sure. But keep in mind that the team doesn't really get together until after the Hildolfr in April. Before that they were part of the decoy operation in mexico to make the feds think the main push would be against Jaburo in the opening moves.

    Also, they're on earth pretty much entirely until September. I might be wrong, but I don't think they were up in space until the Gundam showed up.

That's why we separated in the first place: I couldn't keep you weighed down. You need to move on. I'll always be watching over you." Lara sinks to the ground, crying openly now, her tears mixing with the alcohol.

She straightens and stands, looking at you with red-rimmed eyes. "I... Thank you. Now, if you'd mind, I need to clean up."
