The story of The Gears of Destiny starts around 3 months (March 0066) after the "Dark Fragments Incident" in The Battle of Aces.

01"The Gears Traveled Through Time-Space and the Dark Materials" (時空を超えた少女(ギアース)たちと闇の構築体(マテリアル) Jikū wo Koeta Giāzu tachi to Yami no Materiaru)
Amitie Florian has traveled from Eltria to Earth after her sister Kyrie Florian, aiming to take her home. After being paralysed by Kyrie, Amitie encounters Yuuno Scrya/Alph. On another hand, Kyrie initiates a fight against Hayate Yagami/Reinforce and mistakes Hayate as Lord Dearche due to their similarity. It is revealed that Kyrie is actually here to look for Dearche and System U-D. Around the same time, Dearche "revives" from her destruction three months ago, and Amitie arrives in time to interrupt and confront her. Dearche is later weakened due to the "revival" of Stern the Destructor and Levi the Slasher, and all three off them manage to escape along with Kyrie after a short discussion on System U-D. Amitie goes after them, and the Bureau team has to quickly follow up the incident without the Wolkenritter.
02"The "Darkness of the Book of Darkness" whose Shadow is Cast Again" (再び影を落とす「闇の書の闇」 Futatabi Kage wo Otosu "Yami no Sho no Yami")
Nanoha Takamachi and Yuuno Scrya chase after Amitie Florian and quickly catch up with her. After thinking they are local law enforcers who are trying to arrest her for being on the non-management world, Amitie escapes with Accelerator and disappears. Nanoha and Yuuno give chase but accidentally run into the Liese twins, Vivio Takamachi, Einhard Stratos and finally Stern the Destructor. The Liese twins fight them because they confuse them for their Dark Fragment knockoffs. Vivio and Einhard, who have been transported trough time due to the time travel by the Gears, figure out quickly that they have time traveled, but either in their initial confusion or in effort to break contact with Nanoha and Yuuno drop hints that they aren't from this time. Finally Nanoha or Yuuno faces Stern, who wants to test her new powers of incineration and finally become herself and not merely Nanoha's copy. The Material notes that finding Unbreakable Dark is really important to them, but also promises they will not bother civilians.
