The ZERO System
The ZERO System

Type in the word ZERO to activate the ZERO System. The word ZERO stand for Zoning & Emotional Range Omitted System. This system is a range and reflex boosting system. The ZERO system is a program installed in a cockpit only a few Gundams (Wing Zero & Epyon) are selected and program for the system. In addition to these Gundams, it's also used in the controlling of the Mobile Dolls. The system will improve the pilot's abilities to handle the Gundam by boosting his reflexes; just will improve the pilot's decisions making crucial on the battlefield. The system works by hooking up the pilot's brain directly with the system - it will bypasses normal human interfaces such as visual and audio input by feeding the data directly into the brain. The pilot doesn't have to wait for the pilot's brain synapses to tell the pilot what he or she saw or heard. The ZERO system will already have the information, and a suggestion for action ready. The system thus acts as a sixth sense, communicating directly with the brain.

Because of its danger to the pilot, the ZERO system was discarded by the Gundam's scientists, and not implemented in any other Gundams other than Wing Zero. The first time a pilot uses the ZERO system, they will go insane. The pilot often sees some of the hallucinations caused by the ZERO system as his undeniable future. This is only half true - the system analyses all options, suggest an action to be taken, and the possible result of those actions. So while it seem to have the ability to predict the future, it is only a possible future among endless others. There's no telling how the system chooses one particular "future", or whether ZERO manipulates this future to suit its needs or not. When there is no apparent target or mission, the pilot comes into danger of being manipulated by the system, which only seeks out possible targets and analyses the situation. The other hallucinations are caused by this direct brain interface - the ZERO system seeks out and retrieves needed information for the current situation, and communicates with the conscious part of the brain. The hallucinations and violent behaviour is to be expected, as it is ZERO's way of operating.
