An uneasy peace rests between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT after the terrible battle of Yakin Due. But even as Cagalli and Athrun visit Chairman Durandal to cement the tentative cease-fire, ZAFT terrorists plot with Neo Roanoke to drag both sides into open war. Their plan: storm ZAFT territory and steal several Gundam Mobile Suits - and that's only the beginning.
They're also scheming to engineer a catastrophic event, one designed to drive the Earth back down a bloody path. It falls to the crew of the Minerva - and Athrun Zala - to fight to prevent this disaster... putting everything, including the love between Athrun and Cagalli, in mortal danger.
