Cosmic Era 73. A new type of Mobile Suit called Stargazer is created by the Deep Space Survey and Development Organization that capable of space travel. 19-year-old Phantom Pain pilot Sven Cal Payang investigates the new mobile suit.
The opening scene involves a welcoming home party with the surviving members of the DSSD for Selene who was found alive alongside Sven, after the battle between the DSSD and Phantom Pain.
The scene then changes to a graveyard presumably on Earth where Sol has come to pay his respects to his Uncle Edmund. Also there is Louis the pilot of the Linear Tank who assisted Edmund in the battle against the ZGMF-1017 GINN Insurgent Type, before his death. They talk briefly regarding why Sol is a Coordinator even though his mother was a Natural and Louis remembers fondly the time in where he was under Edmund's command. They are then joined by Selene who was late due to having to purchase alcohol and are then joined by Sven.
Selene once again ask Sven what he intends to do and if he has considered the offer to join the DSSD as a MS Pilot, while opening her beer. Sven considers the offer to be somewhat of a cruel joke as it was because of Phantom Pain and himself that so many were killed. However Selene counters, with the point that Phantom Pain members by the DSSD as well, and that both sides share the burden of responsibility and asks the question of what does he really want to do with his life now?
Sven then responds that he wishes to gaze upon the stars, a similar phrase was uttered by Edmund on how he wished to live his life only by looking up, and not by looking back on past mistakes. Selene responds that they will all move forward together.
