Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory (Japanese: 機動戦士ガンダム0083 STARDUST MEMORY) is a 13-episode anime OVA series set in the Gundam universe. The first volume containing two 30-minute episodes was released in Japan on May 23, 1991. Subsequent volumes, containing one 30-minute episode each, followed every one or two months; the final volume went on sale on September 24, 1992.
Set during October and November U.C. 0083, the series focuses on the crew of the Earth Federation Space Force assault carrier Albion as they try to recover a nuclear-armed Gundam mobile suit stolen by a Zeon group at a base in Australia. Little do they know that the theft is part of a greater plan to destabilize the Earth Federation by dropping a colony on North America to damage the Earth's food supply. At the same time, the Zeon forces stationed on the Axis asteroid base send a small force to prepare for the main body's arrival.
In the larger Universal Century storyline, 0083 depicts the transition of the Earth Federation between the events of Mobile Suit Gundam and Zeta Gundam, providing a backstory for the rise of the Titans organization.
