The Albion arrives at Von Braun City on the Moon to have the GP01 upgraded to Full Vernian (Full Burnern) while the crew goes on shore leave. A snide comment from Monsha at a bar prompts Kou to wander around the city where he is beaten up by some thugs. A one-armed man named Kelley Layzner rescues him and brings him to a junkyard where he lives with his lover. Kou learns of Kelley's origins as a Zeon pilot and helps him fix a Val Walo mobile armor that has been hidden for years. He returns to the Albion and begins testing the Full Vernian-equipped GP01. Elsewhere in the city, Cima blackmails Anaheim boss Gilbert O'Sullivan with a colony drop if he talks to the Federation about her. She also tells Kelley to get the Val Walo ready for action.
