A legend's destiny shattered!
With the Archangel removed from the battlefield, Chairman Durandal gathers the ZAFT forces for a fullscale attack on the Earth Alliance stronghold of Heaven's Base. As a reward for their exploits in battle, Shinn and Athrun are presented with a pair of powerful new Gundams. While Shinn reacts with delight, Athrun cannot hide his doubts about Durandal's actions, and the famous ace pilot suddenly finds himself becoming a hunted fugitive.
Shinn and his comrade Lunamaria are shaken by the outcome of Athrun's escape attempt, but they have no time for regrets as the ZAFT forces begin their assault on Heaven's Base. The Minerva and its pilots face their greatest challenge yet as they attempt to bring the members of the Logos secret society to justice.
