The Neo Zeon remnant group, "The Sleeves", travels to Side 4's Industrial 7 colony, so that its captain, Zinnerman, can meet with the Vist Foundation leader, Cardeas Vist, to receive a "key" to something known as "LaPlace's Box", which is said to be capable of either restoring the future, or destroying the world. Audrey Burns seeks to meet Vist first and convince him not to turn over LaPlace's Box, believing the Sleeves will use it to start another war. Along the way, she is rescued by sixteen year old student Banagher Links, who agrees to take her to meet Vist. Meanwhile, a battle breaks out between the Federation's Londo Bell task force and the Sleeves. As the collateral damage rises, the colony is evacuated. Amidst the chaos, Banagher discovers the fatally wounded Cardeas Vist in the cockpit of the Unicorn Gundam. Before his death, Vist entrusts the Gundam to Banagher, who realizes that Vist was his father. Banagher then launches in the Unicorn Gundam and confronts the Sleeves' elite pilot Marida Cruz, who is piloting the Kshatriya.
With Banagher Links as its master, the Unicorn Gundam goes into action. The mobile suit that is said to be the key to Laplace’s Box offers a glimpse of its incredible power in single combat against Marida Cruz and her Kshatriya. After the battle, the Unicorn Gundam is captured by the Londo Bell warship Nahel Argama. Also aboard the ship are Micott, Takuya, and Audrey, who have been rescued by a Londo Bell pilot named Riddhe Marcenas. Full Frontal, leader of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves, launches an attack on the Nahel Argama with his mobile suit Sinanju in order to obtain the Box. Frontal, the so-called “second coming of Char Aznable,” claims to be a vessel embodying the hopes of the Spacenoids. What will happen when he encounters Banagher on the battlefield?
In order to recapture Banagher and the Unicorn Gundam, the Federation Forces launch an assault on Palau, the stronghold of the Sleeves. Thanks to an ECOAS sabotage operation and the firepower of the Nahel Argama's hyper mega particle cannon, they succeed in sealing off Palau's military port, and Banagher takes advantage of the confusion to escape with the Unicorn Gundam. During his escape he encounters Mineva, who is riding with Riddhe in the mobile suit Delta Plus. Accepting her desire to go to Earth and seek a resolution to the conflict, Banagher entrusts her fate to Riddhe's hands. Banagher hurries back to the Nahel Argama, but Marida and her Kshatriya are standing in his way. During his fierce battle with the Cyber-Newtype Marida, the Unicorn Gundam's NT-D system activates, finally releasing its hidden power.
The conflict surrounding Laplace's Box has spread to Earth, and even the Earth Federation capital at Dakar is now suffering from the terrors of war. Ronan Marcenas, a leader of the Federation government, contacts Londo Bell commander Bright Noa in order to prevent the opening of the Box. At the same time, the captured Marida is at the Augusta Newtype Labs. Meanwhile, Banagher has landed on Earth, and is headed for the Torrington base in Australia where new information about the Box will be disclosed. However, the fury of Zeon remnants will head for Dakar led by the AMA-X7 Shamblo to turn the city into a wasteland.
Banagher is attacked by the black mobile suit Banshee and taken into custody. Backed into a corner, he still continues to conceal the new coordinates leading to Lapace's Box which were revealed by the Unicorn Gundam. Bright Noa, the commander of the Londo Bell, sees in Banagher the dignity and possibility shown by generations of Gundam pilots, and he finds help from old friends he once fought beside. Meanwhile, Mineva has been handed over from Ronan to Martha, and she is transferred to the giant transport plane Garuda as a pawn to make Banagher talk. The conflict surrounding the Box soars to a high altitude and, finally, back into space...
Having escaped the pursuit of the Earth Federation fleet thanks to Full Frontal’s intervention, the Nahel Argama is now forced to form a joint front with the Sleeves. Frontal, hoping to learn the next coordinates for Laplace’s Box, reveals his secret plan against the Federation. Banagher and Mineva are horrified by the cruelty and callousness of the future he describes. Meanwhile, a lone Federation patrol ship approaches the Nahel Argama. Will they destroy the patrol ship, or dissolve their joint front with the Sleeves? Caught between friend and foe, what choice will Banagher and his comrades make?
The location of Laplace's Box, which has the potential to overthrow the Earth Federation government, has finally been revealed. The place is Magallanica at Industrial 7, where the whole incident began. Martha Vist Carbine, the acting head of the Vist Foundation, is determined to protect the Foundation's interests. Together with her nephew Albert Vist, and Council on Colony Relations Chairman Ronan Marcenas, a central figure in the Earth Federation government, she heads directly for the Cheyenne base in order to resolve the situation. Meanwhile, Banagher is hurrying to Industrial 7 in pursuit of Full Frontal, who has gone ahead to seize the Box. But standing in his way are Riddhe's Banshee Norn, and Angelo's Rozen Zulu. Who will reach Magallanica where Syam, the guardian of the Box, is waiting?

Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered. The conflict later dubbed the "Laplace Incident" is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people`s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten. However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix... named Phenex. Source: Official page

Now on the run from the Federation Forces, the Nahel Argama has taken the desperate step of forming a joint front with the Sleeves.
Banagher is despondent now that Full Frontal has learned the final coordinates to Laplace's Box. Marida encourages him, saying that his chance will come if he holds onto his dreams.
