The story follows the plot of the Gundam Wing TV series very closely, incorporating plot elements introduced in Gundam Wing: Episode Zero and the concurrently running novel, Frozen Teardrop. Therefore, the manga acts as a retelling of the original animated TV series with all backstory and sidestory plot elements incorporated, as the 'complete' story.
- Episode.01: OPERATION METEOR (PART.01)
- The year is After Colony 195, and the space colonies began rising up against the oppressive United Earth Sphere Alliance. On the 6th of April, a group of Alliance Space Leos surround a rebel hideout in the L2 Colony Cluster. However, an unknown mobile suit emerges from the hideout and easily destroys the Leos. On Earth, Lady Une, an officer of the Organization of the Zodiac, reports the appearance of the unknown mobile suit to Treize Khushrenada, OZ's leader. Treize realizes that the mobile suit is a Gundam, created to carry out Operation Meteor. He then relays the information to Zechs Merquise, an OZ ace pilot. Back in space, Duo Maxwell, the Gundam's pilot and Professor G, the Gundam's creator, are being pursued by an OZ fleet from the Space Fortress Bulge. Unable to shake their pursuers, Professor G decides that they have no choice but to enlist the help of the Barton Foundation, and plots a course to L2-V08744, Duo's home colony. However, Duo is angered by this, saying that he'd rather die than take part in a massacre.
- Episode.02: OPERATION METEOR (PART.02)
- Duo attempts to destroy his Gundam to avoid taking part in a massacre, but is prevented by Professor G who then suggests Duo take the mobile suit to Earth and carry out Operation Meteor his own way. At the same time, on April 7, AC 195, four other Gundams are sent to Earth as well; each of their pilots also intending to carry out their own versions of Operation Meteor. Most of the Gundams make it to Earth successfully, but the winged unit sent from the L1 Colony Cluster is intercepted during its descent by Zechs' assault carrier. The Gundam destroys Zechs' support MS with ease, but Zechs manages to grapple the Gundam with his Mk. IV Leo "Greif" and sink it into the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the other four Gundams make their presence on Earth known as they each begin to attack OZ facilities and squadrons.

His actions also inadvertently cause the death of Vice-Minister Darlian, who reveals to Relena with his dying words her true identity. At the same time, OZ begins a worldwide takeover of all Alliance bases. Zechs uses his new Tallgeese MS to reclaim his homeland, the Sanc Kingdom. Wufei attempts to kill Treize, but is defeated in a sword duel. However, Treize allows him to escape, which leaves Wufei in disgrace.

Duo, Quatre and the Maganacs attack the base's land transportation route, which is revealed to be a decoy, while Trowa and Heero attack the air route. During the assault, Zechs uses the Tallgeese to battle Heero's Wing Gundam. However, Lady Une sets her trap in motion when she threatens to use the recently-captured Space Fortress Bulge to destroy the colonies unless the Gundam pilots surrender (a tactic that disgusts both Zechs and Noin). In response to this threat, Heero's mentor Doctor J agrees to surrender, but refuses to hand over the Gundam he created. Understanding Doctor J's implied order, Heero self-destructs his Gundam; seemingly killing himself as well. Trowa gathers Heero's motionless body and tells Duo and Quatre to retreat.
