GBS "Direction of the dispute"
The result of General Resource's birth
as a multinational corporation were the
crumbling of the framework of nations,
beginning to head for a new phase.
Then, the enormous mobile floating city,
the symbol of Neucom,
as if they were showing off
their newfound power to us.
And now Neucom, which is mounting
the disputes that began everywhere,
what are they af—expecting, exactly?
To us... how this dispute
may change the course of history
is still unknowable.
But no matter what the result is,
let us just say that even if the UPEO,
stuck between both corporations,
manages to keep the present order,
they will most likely not be able
to leave any new marks on history.

There for you in everyday life,
Ushering in a new era with you,
Building a better future with you,
We're out there every day,

GBS "Wings of a girl reborn"
Take a look at this figure flying off into the
wild blue yonder in a magnificent fighter.
She is an ace pilot of UPEO, everyone's
local hero and guardians of world order.
this same pilot also bears
the burden of a tragic fate.
The pilot’s name is Rena Hirose.
She was diagnosed with
Silverstone Syndrome at birth,
and cannot survive exposure to sunlight.
But now, thanks to the latest technology
developed by General Resource
she has wings to fly with....
NVS "A new era of science"
New science for a new era.
It is common knowledge that a
General Resource research team
that produced some remarkable results,
especially in the area of the Electrosphere,
went on to form the core of Neucom.
Ever since they announced their entry into
the space development arena in 2032,
Neucom has been at a continuing state
of detente with General Resource.
Already, there is talk among insiders
that Neucom's expertise
in virtually all branches
of engineering sciences, like electronics,
biotech and nanotech,
tops that of General Resource,
leading to speculations
that the age of General Resource, which
has dominated the market for many years,
GBS "Rena Hirose"
My days off?
A walk in the park... isn't really an option,
Reading, watching movies.
Just normal stuff, really....
Well—all this, being a pilot, is already
enough of a dream come true.
But, lately... I've been thinking—
that if the body is nothing more than
a container for the mind, then
it doesn't actually mean anything to me.
Because I always fly with my mind.
My body didn't come with wings, but
my mind does... and it gave me the sky.
Sometimes I want to become a pair of wings, mind and all.
ERICH "A little piece of advice!"
—Oh... you're out, huh?
That's all right, just one thing.
I don't know what your intentions are.
But if you want to keep flying for the UPEO,
then don't disobey Commander Park.
Well, if we could protect the world
through peaceful solutions like
Clarkson's faction is always talking about,
then General would have no need
for the UPEO in the first place.
it's got nothing to do with us fighter pilots.
Well, see ya next mission....
Oh... next time, please try and work around
my support a little better.
Don't just copy Rena's or Fi's
I've got nobody covering my back but you.
FIONA "Duty Correspondence"
This is a verbal communication of orders.
Transmission of formal report will follow.
All UPEO crew personnel is placed
on indefinite standby as of today.
Well, in other words, things are
getting pretty damn dicey out there....
EAPN "GN dispute escalates"
Receiving emergency broadcast ....
This is the
The ongoing tension between General
Resource and Neucom has escalated into
armed conflict, with fighting
reported in the Faith Park area.
Official announcement from Neucom
states that, "This attack
is only a retaliation
taken against General Resource
for its violational act".
Responding to the crisis,
UPEO's Del. Clarkson held
an emergency press conference just now
where he announced the immediate
deployment of peacekeepers to the area....
At 0750 hours today,
Neucom initiated a large-scale military
operation against General Resource.
We at the UPEO,
in order to prevent further escalation,
must curb these activities.
Furthermore, should Neucom disregard our warning,
the use of force will be inevitable.
We put our hopes in you, gentlemen.
Must be nice to fly in a Flanker like Rena.
Cut the chatter.
Craft touches the ground
Eeeesh! What’re you doin’?
First wave of targets annihilated within 2 min. 59 s
Incoming reinforcements confirmed.
Prepare to intercept them immediately!
* Second wave of targets appears
Second wave of targets annihilated
First wave of targets annihilated in 3 min. or more
The operation was a success.
We will be counting on you from here on out.
If MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
FIONA "You did good today!"
So, it's finally begun, huh?
Depending on Neucom's response,
Del. Clarkson's clout might
already be of no use.
It's inevitable that our... that the UPEO's
true worth will be questioned.
Weren't you flying differently than before?
It was pretty good!
RENA "Nice to meet you"VM
This is the first time
I've sent you a mail.
If this fighting continues,
I'm sure that we might
flying together more often.
If you fly like you did today,
and we find enemies... I think
you'll be able to down them as you like.
Well then... later.
If MISSION OVER
FIONA "Thanks for the support!"VM
It’s no longer a problem
at a level that Del. Clarkson’s
powers can resolve, is it?
Cmdr. Park will definitely
be getting more turns, I suppose.
Which means... we, too,
should prepare ourselves for the worst.
Well, that’s all I wanted to say.
Also, thank you for your future support!
ERICH "What a commotion"VM
Man oh man....
You'd think it's World War V
the way the media tell it.
Looks like our skirmish was on live too.
...And did you change your flight pattern?
That was your sweetest flying yet.
Oh yeah, business unusual, Fi was
actually saying good things about that.
You keep it up and I can get some rest.
