The year is 2307 AD. The world is in a state of conflict between three superpower blocs, each possessing one of the three orbital elevators which grant them an inexhaustible energy supply through a solar power generation system in satellite orbit. The private armed organization known as Celestial Being, whose declared goal is to eliminate war from the world, is well on its way to success thanks to its amazingly advanced mobile suit weapons called "Gundams." But now, the most resourceful military forces of the Human Reform League have launched a grand operation to trap and capture these mysterious mobile suits in the depths of space. As the four young pilots who call themselves "Gundam Meisters" fight back against this formidable enemy, their emotional fragility and personal secrets begin to come to light.
