(♪♪♪) (WHOOSHING) RADIO: Robots made by the leading
security company Meteotech are no longer responding to commands
and are running amok all over the world. The international security organization
GUN has begun to investigate the event. – Meteotech has not yet issued a formal…
– Is this the meteor that fell last night? Yeah! the sound of the impact woke me from
my sleep, and I found it outside. (YAWNS) We’ll be at Megalo Station shortly. – (ALARM BLARING)
– Hm? Hey! (YELLS) – What should we do, Sonic?
– That elevator! – What’s up with them?
– Are they the ones from the news? Watch out. (HEART BEATING) Go! – Brace yourself!
– (YELLS) (EXPLOSION) (SCREAMING) Sonic! What’s going on?
Is this the stone’s power? Yahoo! Yeah! Yahoo! Sweet! They don’t give a guy a
break, huh? We can’t just stand around here! Right. – Whoa!
– AMY: Guess who! Amy? What are you doing here? Fated lovers are always
drawn together, silly. Amy… Okay, you’ve got me. I was running
away from those robots. I was so
scared! H-hey! – What’s that?
– The cause of all my troubles! – I picked it up, and those stupid robots came after me!
– So that’s it! Those things must be after this stone! I guess that settles it, then.
The key to solving this mystery
is Meteotech! Hey Sonic! We’ve got company! OK… Here we go! Looks like we’ll need to watch our step. Dang! Look out! What? That’s…! It’s been a while, Sonic the Hedgehog! Jet! Long time no see, shorty. Wave! – We’re here to settle the
score from last time!
– Anytime, Babylon Rogues! Cut it out, Storm! Alright, girly! Hand over the Ark of the Cosmos! What are you talking about? Don’t play dumb! Not after swiping the Ark of the
Cosmos right out of our hands! Hey, hold up a minute. Girls hate guys who rush them, Jet. Rush? Heh! I’m the fastest thing in the universe! And today, I’m gonna prove it! Sonic, we can’t stay here! Looks like we’ll have to do the reunion later! See ya, Jet! H-Hey, wait! You can use that power, too!? [Sonic] Pretty handy, really. Engage algorithm, maximum value. Access Mother Computer. Mother Computer access denied. Why?! Hm. What’s this racket, and now of all times? What went flying just now? Do I look like a ball to you? Eggman! What are you doing here? [Eggman] What do you mean? I own this company! Hahahahaha! What?! So you’re the ringleader behind this one too, Eggman? Ringleader? What the devil are you babbling about? [Sonic] Come on, cut the act! I’m talking about the global robot rampage! You must be joking! That’s been quite a headache for me, as well. Like will believe anything you say! [Eggman] Calm down! We go way back, don’t we? I’ll let you in on something. Not even I know why they’ve gone amok, but they appear to be following a leader. [Sonic] A leader?! Well, I guess for now we’ll buy that Eggman isn’t involved. Hm. So maybe that has nothing to do with the robots that attacked us… Wh-Where did you get that?! So you were holding out on us, Eggman! [Knuckles] Spill everything you know, now! Very well. I’ll tell you… All robot activity within my facility is normally controlled by the Mother Computer. As the core of the Mediotech network it was supposed to be the perfect computer. But as of a few days ago, I’ve been unable to control it remotely. The power unit within the mother computer is a stone identical to the one you’re holding. According to my analysis, that stone can convert huge amounts of mass energy into other forms of energy and exudes a unique magnetic field. [Knuckles] Huh? [Eggman] Shut up and listen. In any case, it appears that somehow, the robots’ leader also contains a stone with similar powers to the one in the Mother Computer. What?! If my deductions are correct, The robots’ leader is using the world’s robots in an attempt to collect these brain stones from around the globe. But why do they need the stones? [Eggman] That even I don’t know. …They’re drawn to one another. What? [Jet] These are just some rocks! They’re spoken of in Babylon Clan Legend as… Ah! That’s right! Girl, give me back the Ark of the Cosmos! Amy’s gone! Storm’s not here either! Sounds like we’ve got a fix on the robot leader’s location. Satellite monitor on! Amy!!! Amy! It took you long enough! What happened here? Don’t ask me! First it comes flying at me full tilt, and then it just blows up! It blew up?! Wait, does that mean…?! What is it, Tails? Sorry, I need people to think it through a little more, first. Hey, where’s that meathead, Storm? [Amy] He grabbed something out of this robot and hightailed it out of here. So does this mean the rampaging robots will all cool it? I don’t think it’s that simple. If Eggman started all of this by putting that stone in his Mother Computer, then I don’t think it’ll stop until we remove it. So where is that? Wait, I remember Storm saying something weird about the thing he took from that robot matching something they found someplace else. Well… Oh, where was it he said…? Gi… Giga… Something like that. Wait, Gigan! The Gigan Rocks. Right, what you said! You know it, Knuckles? It’s a pretty famous ruin among us treasure hunters. A legend about shooting stars tells of some star shard shield there that can grant your wishes. Shooting stars! Sonic, let’s head to the Gigan Rocks right away! We might find a clue about these stones. Leave the directions to me!! But they say the star shard is in a sacred chalice deep in the ruins and getting there ain’t easy. Nobody’s made it back alive yet. We’ll be risking our necks. Yeah! Don’t worry. That’s nothing new. Was there an earthquake in here? It’s gone!!! What’s wrong, Knuckles? The legends say the star shard is supposed to be in this chalice. Did it roll off somewhere in the quake? Hey, Tails, what’s up with this painting? The Divine Wings…. Divine Wings? Yes, the legendary bird that the gods rode through the heavens. Knuckles, see if you can read this inscription. The Divine Wings, straddler of stars, lose their plumes to the dark and fall to the ground. Plumes become as stars returning to this land. We, the children of Babylon, Babylon?! What connection do they have with these stones? We still don’t know that. But could those stones the robots are after be the plumes written about here? The Divine Wings, straddler of stars. Could they be power units, used to operate some starship? So this Divine Wings thing is… Right… Babylon Garden. Jet! Eggman! Knuckles, what does the rest of the inscription say? [Knuckles] Huh? Oh, right. We, the children of Babylon, seal one star here, and another within the Great Scar. formed in heaven’s fall until the time of the Divine Wings’ rising. The Great Scar? Wait, there’s more… the Great Scar lying in the east among Earth stained red by the dawn’s light Eggman and Jet were headed East! The Great Scar must’ve been formed when the meteorites struck ground. That must be where Eggman found the plume! Which means the mother computer…? …Is probably waiting there, too. All right! Time to go catch up! Heh, took you long enough. Where’s Eggman? They call it the Crimson Tower. It’s Meteotech’s signal tower. Commands sent out here relay to facilities across the world to control the robots. In other words you’re looking at Meteotech’s brain. that’s been anchored at the arms of the cosmos That fiend Eggman nabbed the Arks of the Cosmos we’d gotten and ran in there. [Sonic] What’s he after this time? [Tails] He’s probably going to use the stones’ power to issue in order to all the world’s robots from this tower! Sooner or later he was planning to set the robots rampaging. That was probably his reason for forming Meteotech in the first place. The Eggmanland project again, huh? He never gives up, does he? Well, looks like we gotta storm the place. Hold it. [Sonic] Huh? You think I was just sitting around here twiddling my thumbs, Sonic the Hedgehog? I follow you. Sorry to keep you waiting. First one to nab Eggman gets all of the Arks of the Cosmos! And the title of the fastest creature in the universe! Heh! sounds like fun to me! [Jet] Let’s get started! So this is the master unit. [Mother Computer] System error detected. All commands cancelled. My Eggmanland plans are in ruin after all these years! [Sonic] Deal with it, Eggman! You’re through! A trap?! What have you done, Eggman?! [Tails] Look! Babylon Garden… The resonance from all five power units must have called it down. [Jet] Then the legends were right! Here… H-Hey! We haven’t settled anything yet! Turning tail and running away, Sonic the Hedgehog? Running Away? Who do you think I am? I’ll be waiting… See you at the World Grand Prix. Jet, we have other things to take care of. Let’s hurry to Babylon Garden. I suppose we should head home, too. Hey, Sonic! Why do you think the ancient Babylonians sealed away that power unit in the Gigan Rocks? Beats me [Tails] Something’s not right… The lightless black that assaulted the Divine Wings… and how that robot chasing Amy just exploded… We can’t let those meteorites get near Babylon Garden! How is that thing still flying?! …Eggman! [Eggman] I don’t know… What? All I can say is that something nearby is generating a massive electromagnetic pulse That may have forcibly engaged the program in the robot’s buffer. Sonic, the Babylonians weren’t able to control the power of those meteorites! [Sonic] What do you mean? I figured out how they can change gravitational polarity! It’s a black hole!!! The meteorites amplify gravity to form black holes—that’s the lightless black that attacked the Divine Wings! The power units are resonating together, forming a giant black hole! [All] Woah!!! [Sonic] Wh-… What the…? At this rate, the whole planet will be sucked into the black hole! Thanks, Sonic! [Eggman] The world is doomed! Wave! How can we stop this storm? [Wave] The core unit in the engine room powers Babylon Garden. If we disconnect it, that should do the trick! I’ll go on ahead! So, are you okay with all this? Well, much as I miss the vast reaches of space, this world still has its charm. Besides… I wonder what those meteors really were. [Tails] They had some programming that made them try to gather up the other units. It activated when Eggman found it and put it in the Mother Computer all the robots went berserk because they were all connected to the network At least, I think that’s what happened. But who made that program? I have no idea. Maybe the ancient Babylonians, or maybe someone even more ancient… Maybe it was a warning, for people to stay away from power beyond control. But the people of Babylon- [Amy] I can’t believe they were the descendants of aliens They crash landed on this planet in the ancient past… They disconnected their engine unit… [Amy] And left it in orbit, hoping that someday it would fall back down to the surface… Every time they saw a shooting star… I bet they’d wish that they could get back to their home planet… Maybe that’s why people started wishing on shooting stars Sonic! Hm?
