During the One Year War, Aiguille Delaz chose to withdraw from the final battle at A Baoa Qu, forfeiting that hopeless fight in order to strike back at the Earth Federation later on and inspire the next generation of Zeon. The main goal of Operation Stardust was to expose the corruption of the Earth Federation and to weaken its authority over the Earth Sphere. Operation Stardust was carried out successfully by the Delaz fleet, however the Delaz fleet was utterly eradicated and failed to revitalize the Zeon spirit. Although the Admiral’s dream of a new Zeon did not come true; it should be noted that Delaz’s claim of Federation’s corruption was proven to be true. The admiral’s final moments clearly displayed his pride and loyalty in Zeon.
Admiral Aiguille Delaz was killed in action November 12, Universal Century 0083
