No. It was Kira in the 2nd, Stella in the 3rd, and Rey (with Freedom replaced with Legend) in the 4th.

I remember because people were griping that it basically spoiled that Stella was gonna be heading back to EA, right when it looked like she was gonna join Shinn after he brought her to Minerva.

Yeah, I just watched them again, and wow, I don't even remember Rey being there for the fourth.

That's because the 4th op was boring and didn't show anything really interesting beyond recuts of previous OP footage and new units we already knew were coming long ago.

It's very forgettable.

I wouldn't personally call op 4 boring myself. I really liked it. I think the problem is the part of the show that is basically supposed to be the climax instead had a opening that basically told the viewer to chill and relax, which is really bad for a final opening and especially bad when the first three were intense rock that was getting progressively more intense each song.

It's called a Neutron Jammer.
They really can't see him.

Ok dumb question time.

But what do Neutron Jammers have to do with Orb's military detecting the Freedom? As it was mentioned in the bloody episode that one of the "unknowns" was the Freedom. How would they be able to make that determination without being able to see the darn thing?

I think that was a joke.

They did say in the episode that the Freedom was too fast for them.

Ah that makes more sense, I suppose my sarcasim sensor wasn't working properly when I read Kaito's post.

Though the Freedom being faster is understandable. Murasame's are grunt units after all. Then again ZAFT grunts where able to take down the Strike so....

Zaku's were as strong as the Strike. Freedom was 4 times stronger than the Strike.

That was only partly sarcasm.
N-Jammers would considerably limit the Murasame's Radar. We don't know how far those limitations have pushed back radar tech in CE, but going by what we saw (in multiple occasion) they probably couldn't see him till he was close to visual range, But at that point it's probably too late, considering Freedoms speed and it's aerial capabilities.

thats kinda sounds wrong to me, but i don't know really. I mean the Freedom owned an entire Orb fleet and the Minerva in that one battle, that seems much more than just 4x the output of the strike, strike with Kira could barely handle that battle with a couple of Goufs and Zakus when he went to get the Strike Freedom. the Freedom would have to be like 10x better than the Strike.

Aquaman's statement is based off of when Kira first acquired the Freedom; when he looked over the technical readouts as he booted up the machine, he remarked on the Freedom having "four times the power of the Strike."

Actually, Kira was doing well with the Strike Rouge until he had to take that shot that the Strike Rouge's shield wasn't able to defend against.

Yeah. Plus he was still fighting fairly effectively in the Strike until he tried to shield Eternal from a Gunner Zaku's cannon and got his shield and arms blown off.

He was used to Freedom's stronger shield I guess.

It's not even a matter of being used to the Freedom's shield. Kira wanted to take that shot for the Eternal just as Mu wanted to take the shot for the Archangel.

Plot dictated he needed a reason to retrive strike freedom.

I will also add in that the Freedom is MADE to handle multiple hostiles, unlike the Strike which only has one rifle


Hey does anyone know if there are photoshopped images of the second ending without the characters and people? I love the stills for the MS's in the background

That too. Strike isn't really a one man army MS in the same way Freedom was.
