Technical and Historical Notes

 

Created in the late 23rd century, the GN-000 0 Gundam was a first generation Gundam and served as the template for all of Celestial Being's later Gundam designs. The most revolutionary feature of the 0 Gundam was the Gundam Nucleus (GN) Drive that powered both the suit and its weapons. Created on Jupiter, the GN Drive provided nearly limitless energy and the GN particles it emitted could jam radar and communications equipment. The 0 Gundam's GN Drive powered its prototype beam gun and saber, which lacked the GN Condensers developed for later units. The GN Drive could also emit GN Feathers: wings of light that helped stabilize the suit in mid-air and jam/disrupt enemy attacks. However, the enormous output of the GN Feather was deemed inefficient and went unused in later units.

In 2301, Innovade Ribbons Almark conducted an armed intervention test with the 0 Gundam during the war between Azadistan and the Krugis Republic. Ribbons' mission was to eliminate all witnesses, but he spared a young terrorist named Soran Ibrahim (aka Setsuna F. Seiei) because of the psychological effect he saw the Gundam had on the boy. Six years later, when Celestial Being revealed itself to the world, the 0 Gundam's GN Drive was used by the support organization Fereshte to power its second generation Gundams. By 2312, the 0 Gundam and its GN Drive were back in the possession of Celestial Being. With its GN Drive already in use, the 0 Gundam was equipped with a GN Condenser and repainted for use as a reserve unit by backup Gundam Meister Lasse Aeon. However, the GN Condenser had a limited operation time compared to the full power of the GN Drive. During the final battle against the Innovators, the 0 Gundam and a GN Drive were reclaimed by Ribbons, who fought (and lost) a battle against Setsuna's GN-001REII Gundam Exia Repair II.
