In early February C.E. 71, the civilian shuttle Silverwind is sent out to the Debris Belt to investigate the ruins of Junius Seven in preparation for a memorial marking the first anniversary of the Bloody Valentine tragedy. The leader of the delegation is Lacus Clyne, idol singer and daughter of PLANT Supreme Council Chairman Siegel Clyne. While in the debris belt, the Silverwind comes under attack from an Earth Alliance battleship. The attack is orchestrated by an informant named Kenaf Luchini as a trap to lure in MBF-P02 Gundam Astray Red Frame pilot Lowe Guele. The Alliance ship, acting on misinformation from Kenav, believes that the Silverwind is a ZAFT military vessel disguised as a civilian ship. During the battle, Lowe spots the damaged ship and protects it long enough to allow Lacus to launch in an escape pod. Later, Lacus' escape pod is found by GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam pilot Kira Yamato while he is out on a supply mission for the Alliance battleship Archangel.
