I'm not sure if anyone will know, but when the Unicorn is punched in the torso by the Kshatriya, is it meant to be the force of the impact that causes Banagher to throw up, or the fact that his mind is connected to the Unicorn and the "brain waves" transmit back to his body that he's been punched in the stomach?

I'd go with the former, honestly. I don't know how the psychframe could translate the sensation of being punched in the stomach back to the pilot without bringing some unfortunate technical problems into play.

I don't expect there's even an answer to this, but I'll ask anyway.
Why is the Tallgeese called that? Does it have any particular meaning, or did the designer just pick two random English words and stick them together?

First, it was called ‘Tall’ coz it IS the tallest MS in GW anime (don’t know about the side-story mangas) which can only be rivaled by Epyon. Here’s the height comparison:

Tallgeese : 17.4 meters
Epyon : 17.4 meters
Wing : 16.3 meters
Wing Zero : 16.7 meters
Deathscythe : 16.3 meters
Deathscythe Hell : 16.3 meters
Heavyarms : 16.7 meters
Heavyarms Kai : 16.7 meters
Shenlong : 16.4 meters
Altron : 16.4 meters
Sandrock : 16.5 meters
Sandrock Kai : 16.5 meters
Vayette : 16.3 meters
Mercurius : 16.3 meters
Maganac : 16.4 meters
Leo : 16.2 meters
Aries :16.9 meters
Taurus : 16.8 meters
Virgo : 16.3 meters
Cancer : 16.9 meters
Pisces :16 meters

As for the ‘geese’ part, I think that’s just something the designers (or whoever) came up with to complete the at-least-two-syllables requirement of mecha names. Still, 'Tallgeese' is a very original cool-name. I like it.

Actually, based on Japanese sources, the name of "Tallgeese" is derived from the word "Theurgist". One who presides over ritual.

Wow, another new information. Thanx. Where do you get it from? All sites that I check said that the 'tall' part in Tallgeese refers to its height.

Its in the Japanese wikipedia
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%...82%AE%E3%82%B9

OZ suits all have pagan religion associations anyway (including Vayate and Mercurius which are based on an Egyptian and Roman god), so Tallgeese might just be a butchered romanization.

Oh, fantastic! Thanx for the source . It's so sad that I can't read Japanese . I also like to know the meaning of Tallgeese since looong ago. Does that mean the sites that said that the name is related to its height are wrong?

Gundam Wing: Wing ZERO blueprints

The big Wing ZERO question: Why the heck did Instructor H leave the Wing ZERO blueprints on Colony L4?

I mean ain't those like, super-top-secret and the ZERO System extremely dangerous?

I doubt he just left them lying around for anyone to find. They were probably encrypted with several layers of security, and if you recall from the second episode the Earth Alliance barely even made a scratch in the disk Heero was carrying on him, so we know the encryption the Doctors and Gundam pilots use is nothing to sneeze at. Wing Zero probably had even more intense security on it, which could only be broken by the Doctors or someone who knew their coding protocols (i.e. the pilots).

He was probably searching the Doctor's facilities and any files he could find with an electron microscope for anything that could help him. By that point in time, he had gone off the deep end and there was only one thing on his mind.

Thanks a bunch. That has been bugging me ever since i re-watched episode 24.

But my main gripe is why did Instructor H leave the Wing ZERO blueprints on Colony L4? With such sensitive information, won't be better if he a) took the disc with him or b) left the disc somewhere else other than the most obvious places?

So recently I have had this quote stuck in my head from a Gundam series, and I cannot remember the whole thing. I'd like the precise quote who said it and when if anyone could. It talks of how life is like mirror or glass shards or something like that that.

I've seen all but three Gundam shows, and I can't remember such a quote from any of them. That being said, that does sound like a quote from Code Geass, during which happiness is being compared to glass.

Yes, I recall it in Code Geass as well (I believe Lelouch was repeating something Suzaku said once?). I'm not sure whether there was one in Gundam though.

ooo maybe that was it, because I recall a character in with brown hair saying it. Thought it was Kira. That makes sense, as i just went over the movies of gundam seed and destiny finding no reference to it. Thanks, any ideas what ep it was said on?

Season 2. I believe it was episode seven.

I assume you're talking about AGE? If so, then no, it's not out yet.
