Also, quin (K-win) can't be written in katakana because there is no short i sound. So ultimately, we don't know. Sorry.
That's incorrect. "Queen" in katakana is クィーン. It is the dash that creates the long 'e' sound. So "Quin" would technically be a correct translation, and "Queen" would not.

My bad. I'm still learning (slowly).

Hm, well that's good. I always called the Quin Mantha since Battle Assault 1. Kinda stuck with me.

It'd be hard to start calling it something else.

バ and ヴァ tend to be used interchangeably sometimes. "Value" is transliterated as "バリュー" for example.

Need help finding a Zeta Gundam track. It plays when Char is infiltrating the Titans colony in episode one. It's quite distinct. I can't find it in any of the soundtracks (may have missed it).

I can provide the time in the episode it plays, but not right now.

Was there any instance in Victory Gundam where a MS ignites a nuclear explosion?

I think there was one on earth, but i don't remember which episode. I could be wrong, though

I've been looking for that track on YouTube for the longest time but no one seems to have uploaded it.

You're not wrong, there was definitely a MS nuclear explosion on Earth. Specifically when the battleships with wheels invaded Earth.

Has there ever been confirmation on the O Gundam's ability to use Trans-Am, or is it still theoretical?

Okay thanks for having a look anyway, maybe I'll have to check out other sources on the web.

Nothing yet. Though, from what I know, Trans-Am is a feature from GN Drives; 0 Gundam might be able to pull it off.

I'm probably missing something but can anyone tell me where to actually start watching the Gundam animes?

I've seen bits and pieces of Gundam Wing on CN when I was younger and I've just watched Mobile Suit Gundam F91 and my mecha itch needs further satisfying.

Do a Google search or buy the DVDs. That may sound callous but you could get banned for asking and we could get banned for telling you.

I'm not asking for torrents, mate.

I'm asking for a chronological order in which to watch the shows.

Ah, that I can help with.

For UC:

Mobile Suit Gundam
The 08th MS Team
Gundam 0080
Gundam 0083
Zeta Gundam
Gundam ZZ
Char's Counterattack
Gundam Unicorn (though it's still airing)
Gundam F91
Victory Gundam

For AU:

G-Gundam, Gundam Wing, After War Gundam X, Turn A Gundam, Gundam SEED, and Gundam 00 can be watched in any order you want. Endless Waltz is the finale of Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED Destiny is the sequel series to Gundam SEED, and A Wakening of the Trailblazer wraps up Gundam 00.

Cheers, mate.

So F91 was one of the last of the UC saga... Whoops. Haha.
