An Ode To Fallen Nemo

Sabban Vint and his fellow graduates of the 117th cadet core are exhilarated at the chance to serve alongside the legendary ace pilots of the AEUG, however they will soon learn that not all soldiers are hero's nor all pilots aces - Someone needs to wear the redshirt, to pilot the mighty MSA-003-Nemo.

For my review of 'Zeta Gundam' I wrote the following short story detailing what the lives of the poor everyday background pilot must be like in a war predicated on the fact that one man said another's name "sounds like a girl's name" leading to the deaths of 1000s. Since then I've begun writing an original novel, using some of the concepts that are present with-in Ode to Fallen Nemo but as I'm not particularly sure anyone will be interested in my style or a mecha genre novel(this blurb alone will probably turn most away), as such I thought it migth be fun to upload the original short story in order to get a sense for if anyone is interested in this sort of narrative. I've made an attempt to streamline the tale to be a little less referential to Gundam but obviously knowledge of that series will give this tale it's context. Thanks for reading!
