Technical and Historical Notes

 

In the 25th century, humanity lives in evacuation spaceships following the devastation of Earth in a war five centuries earlier. However, on the Megazone 23 ship, a computer maintains the illusion that its inhabitants live in 20th century Tokyo. But the military discovers the truth and begins analyzing Bahamut's data to develop advanced weapons called maneuver slaves. Unlike the earlier mass production Hargan, the Garland is able to transform on its own from the motorcycle maneuver craft mode to the humanoid maneuver slave. In addition to its transformation function, the Garland is designed to function as a Bahamut access terminal. In maneuver slave mode, the Garland is capable of functioning in a standard atmosphere or in space. The Garland's armament is comprised of a standard laser orb gun with reloadable cartridges, which are stored in the Garland's forearms.

 

Soon after the Garland's completion, it is stolen by its designated test driver, Shinji Nakagawa. Nakagawa entrusts the Garland to his friend Shogo Yahagi, but he's killed when the military attempts to retrieve the Garland. Fueled by a desire for revenge, Shogo uncovers the true nature of the world and decides to fight the military. When the military initiates a coup to take control of Megazone 23, Shogo enters the ship's core to destroy Bahamut and reveal the truth to the public. However, Shogo loses a duel to Hargan pilot BD and is injured as a result. Shogo is forced to abandon the damaged Garland, which is later repaired by the military and re-designated as the GR-00X Prototype Garland.
