It was the year After Colony 201 and peace continued to reign over the Earth Sphere. In Brussels the Gundam Pilots, excluding Heero Yuy, and other comrades and friends gathered for a reunion from past wars and discussed what was happening lately in their lives. Milliardo Peacecraft went outside, away from the festivities and looked at the sky. He stared at the red star, the star that the Mars Terra Formation Project was located. His wife, Lucrezia Peacecraft, walked up to her husband.
"So what are you looking at Zechs?" She asked him using his alter ego from the Eve Wars.
"Just at the Planet Mars." Then something caught his eye and he saw a familiar streak of yellow light. 'That light...' he thought as the light grew brighter.
"Zechs, what is it?" Then the light crashed some blocks away from the house. The reunion abruptly stopped as they rushed outside to find out what happened. Several moments later, Preventer units and residents of the neighborhood gathered at the crash site to some ship.
"Okay people, move away please. The clean up crew will be here shortly." But then they heard the sound of rushing air from a jet engine and the looked up to see several "Swan necked" ships followed by what looked liked jet fighters, but they transformed into small versions of Mobile Suits and several people in unfamiliar uniforms rushed from the ships and then several motorcycles came out and transformed into armor and sprayed fire extinguisher foam upon the ship.
"This is Lieutenant Carl Xavier to Logan. We have a Garfish crash and we are requesting more support." The residents looked onward as the unknown people pulled personnel from the wreckage and placed them on medical bed trays without wheels and rushed them onto the shuttles. The large motorcycle/armor and several jet/robots carefully removed several objects from the fallen Garfish craft. Then after about two and a half hours, the mysterious men disappeared from the scene, leaving an empty ship with no valuables within the ship.
The news media was over the crash of last night, mostly over the mysterious military group that salvaged the fallen space craft into almost nothing. Was it a new rebel faction? Where did they come from? What was that strange technology that they used? These questions were asked upon the front pages of the media. At Preventer Headquarters, many agents are trying to find out those answers without any luck. They can't use the remains of the fallen space craft for it was already salvaged of any value and clue to it's origin exempt for a small icon of a triangle and the letters "REF". A young man entered the Headquarters of the Preventers, no one paid little or no attention to the brown haired, Prussian Blue eyed man and he walked up to the front desk.
"Excuse me." The secretary at the front desk looked up to see the young man.
"Oh hello Mister Yuy. It's been some time since you were here." The secretary replied.
"May I ask you where Chief Une is currently located." Heero asked.
"She's in her office and is currently in a private meeting with the Vice Foreign Minister." Heero slightly cringed to the fact that he could face an angry Darlian. "Should I call her and say that you need to speak with her?"
"I can wait." Heero walked to the elevator and took it to Chief Une's office level. He just reached the door to her office when both she and Relena Darlian walked out of the office. Heero stopped, not sure what her outburst would be when she finally sees him after four years of absence. Relena, on the other hand, was glad to see Heero once again and hopefully stay.
"Hello Heero, it's been a while." Heero wasn't sure what to make of her tone of voice. Should he expected a cold scorn or a happy conversation.
"Mister Yuy, I'm surprised to see you here. May I ask how you were doing these past few years."
"I would like to aid in the investigation over the crash from last night."
"And may I ask why you want to be in the investigation?"
"Personal reasons." He said flatly.
'Still the same man I know so well.' Relena thought as she left the two alone. Chief Une handed Heero some papers and photographs and he looked at them with watchful eyes.
"These photos were taken last night at the crash. We don't know who they are or where these machines came from, but they seem very advanced." Heero paid more attention to the photographs than to Chief Une.
'This is interesting. These are REF VF-117Firefly, VR-112 Samson, and VR-122 Protector Cyclones. And the ship is a REF Garfish-Class Destroyer.' He then switches to another photograph. 'And those are VAF-8 Alpha Fighters in Battloid mode, no doubt that they have the SF-10 Cloaking Devises installed within them.' Heero then looks at another photograph. 'Horizont DTTS-12 Dive Transatmospheric Troop Shuttles? REF Military Police and Combat Paramedics? Those Military Police are armed with TWR Gallant 1000 with Shoulder Stock, Computer Targeting Sight and Flash Suppressor Attached and wearing REF CVR-3 and 4 Armor. Why are they using REF technology here in the Earth Sphere? It will take them decades to understand Robotechnology and Protoculture but they are using them and mass productively. Did someone survive the crash?' Heero was interrupted by Chief Une.
"Is something the matter Mister Yuy?"
"I'm sorry, I wasn't paying any attention."
"By the look on your face when you were studying those photographs, I'd say that you know something about these things." Heero was surprise to know that Chief Une saw his worried face. "May I ask that you tell me everything you know about these things." Heero gave a deep sigh, placed the photographs on the desk and pointed at the pictures.
"These two are called Cyclones; the VF-117 Firefly, VF-112 Samson, and VF-122 Protector. The Firefly was designed as to be a search and rescue cyclone and not intended for combat. The Samson is a construction cyclone used mainly for construction, repairs and salvage, also not intended for combat. The Protector, however, is intended for combat, but used to enforce law and order." He then pointed at another photograph. "And this thing is a Veritech VAF-8 Alpha Fighter in Battloid mode. They are standard fighters and are armed with a MM-70B Multi-Missile System, Head Mounded TWR-25 Pulse Lasers, Wing Hardpoints for missiles and GU-25 25mm Quad-Barrel Hand Cannon. They can transform from Battloid mode to a Guardian mode and then finally a Jet mode." Heero then moved to another photograph. "Those are Horizont DTTS-12 Dive Transatmospheric Troop Shuttles. They mainly transport cyclone soldiers from orbital starships and can detach the pods under their wings and are armed with only a VAF-8 Alpha Fighter connected to a VBF-2 Beta Fighters in what is called a Legios. Those people are REF Millitary Police and Combat Paramedics. The MP are armed with TWR Gallant 1000 with Shoulder Stock, Computer Targeting Sight and Flash Suppressor Attached and wearing REF CVR-3 and 4 Armor." Chief Une wasn't sure what to make of this information, then something popped into her mind.
"What dose REF mean might I add Mister Yuy?"
"Robotech Expeditionary Force."
