Ash is left alone in the Gundam Labs of Task Squad 496, while everyone goes shopping to buy supplies for Ash's birthday party. Ash took his time to repair the Black Zaku II he destroyed when he saved his sister. He did some slight modifications to it, such as changing its appearance and abilities.
Ash prepares an TSK-14A Gelgoog for everyone in Task Squad 496 to use, as well as one for Shane so he can stop arguing with Saji over who should pilot the Guncannon Mark II. He came to the idea of using the Federation of Zeon's mass production models, turning them into Type 1 mobile suits. He then tests out the Gelgoog in the training labs for 5 minutes, the results were well, and he detects no flaws in them.
He finished repairing the Zaku II he previously destroyed, turning it into a Command Type Zaku II for his own personal use. He tests it out for 3 minutes and 30 seconds to see how well it fairs in combat against the Gelgoog, and results were well, with the same strength and stability as Shane's Gelgoog.
He has finished testing them out, and everyone returns to headquarters. Ash goes to headquarters to see if everyone's home. The lights go on, and everyone screams "Surprise!". Ash learns that its a surprise birthday party that his little sister came up with. The cake is served and is coated with chocolate. Everyone tells Ash to have a great birthday and he hugs Elizabeth for holding such a great birthday for him.
