This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "A Revolutionary Tale".

[Scene: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Rouge: What's going on?
Decoe: Looks like a full-blown space skirmish, and we're right in the middle!
Bocoe: I cannot tell yet who they are, Doctor, but I have a feeling they are not exactly friendly.
Dr. Eggman: Now let's not get hysterical. It's only Sonic and his pea-brained posse.
[Eggman sees hundreds of flashes in the distance. He quickly learns that it is a group of pilots fighting off a group of Metarex swarmers.]

[Scene Change: Space]

[A human man named Leon is one of the resistance fighters. Several of his side's craft get shot down.]
Leon: The warships are comin' at us from everywhere!
[Another craft is shot down.]
Human Pilot 1: [Over radio] We're way outnumbered!
[A group of Metarex swarmers appear behind Leon.]
Human Pilot 2: [Over radio] We can't turn back. It's too late!
[Another human pilot, a girl named Molly, shoots down three Metarex ships.]
Molly: I'll distract the satellite ships. You aim for the fortress and give it everything you've got!
[She flies through a thick swarm of Metarex ships.]
Human Pilots: [Over radio] Roger!
[The group flies towards the flagship, which is being run by Metarex General Pale Bayleaf.]

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

Metarex Trooper: They are aimed at the mothership, sir.
Pale Bayleaf: Then we must teach them a lesson.

[Scene Change: Space]

[The battleship opens fire. Its lasers destroy several more resistance craft and even it the Crimson Egg.]

[Scene Change: Crimson Egg - Cockpit.]

[Bocoe and Decoe panic.]
Bocoe: Something tells me it is not Sonic!
Decoe: This is someone a whole lot crankier!
Dr. Eggman: Quit quivering, you clanking clods! We'll call on our secret weapon!

[Scene Change: Space]

[Shadow is standing outside the Crimson Egg.]
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Oh, Shadow? It seems we're in a bit of a pickle. See what you can do.
[Shadow's eyes narrow, and he zips around, destroying Metarex ships left and right. One of them is about to shoot down Molly's craft, but Shadow destroys it. Shadow and Molly make eye contact before the black hedgehog flies away. Molly is shocked at what she saw.]
Molly: Could that be Black Wind...?
Leon: [Over radio] Molly! You okay?
Human Pilot 1: [Over radio] Who was that guy? He came out of nowhere!
Human Pilot 2: [Over radio] What next?
Molly: [On radio] Let's follow him! We may not be the only resistance out here! C'mon!
[Molly and some other fighters fly back towards Pale Bayleaf's battleship.]

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

Pale Bayleaf: It appears that our enemies are more resourceful than we thought. That's enough for now.
Metarex Trooper: Yes, sir.
Pale Bayleaf: Retreat immediately. We'll be watching and when they least expect it, we'll strike again, and this time, we'll destroy them.
[A red gleam appears in his eye.]

[The opening theme plays.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Shadow returns to the outside of the ship. Molly appears on Eggman's viewscreen.]
Molly: [Over video] We are very grateful to you.
Dr. Eggman: Think nothing of it. Those Metarex can certainly be a nuisance with a capital N.
[Shadow sees a planet with huge Grand Canyon-esque cracks running through it.]
Molly: [Voice-over] This is Cascade, our home planet. My friends and I are the only ones living here now.

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[The Crimson Egg and Molly’s fleet descend towards the ruined, barren, rocky surface of Cascade.]
Molly: [Voice-over] They've arranged a welcome reception for you at the base. I'm sure they'd be greatly honored if you come. We'll see you there.

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Eggman grins. A blip appears on the radar.]
Dr. Eggman: I'd be happy to come, now that I know there's a Chaos Emerald lying among those wretched ruins down there. [On radio] See what you can find, Shadow.

[Scene Change: Cascade]

Shadow: I'll take a look around.

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

Dr. Eggman: [On Radio] Be discreet. If Rouge and her sticky fingers find out there are Chaos Emeralds floating about, why, she's liable to...
Rouge: [Off-screen, interrupting] I'm liable to what, Eggy-poo?
[Eggman sweat-drops when he sees Rouge standing there. Bokkun is cowering behind her.]
Bokkun: [To himself] Uh-oh... Talk about busted...
Rouge: You're afraid I just might snatch 'em up for myself. How can I ever convince you I'm on the level?
Dr. Eggman: Yeah, right. [On radio] Take Rouge with you, but you better keep an eye on her.

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[Shadow's eyes are drawn to a waterfall as a flashback hits him.]
Chris: [Flashback] Eggman doesn't care about you. He only wants to use you to get what he wants. Don't you see that?
[Earlier...]
Chris: [Flashback] Of course I do. Shadow transported us to Space Colony ARK.
Rouge: [Flashback] That's right. Shadow, wasn't that the home of your friend Maria?
[Later still...]
Super Sonic: [Flashback] We all know you're just collecting 'em for Dr. Eggman. He's really got you fooled, doesn't he, pal?
Molly: [Off-screen] Shadow!
[Shadow looks up. He, Molly, and Rouge are now inside a makeshift headquarters in the rocks. A window looks out to the waterfall.]
Molly: Sorry, I just wanted to thank you. What you did... I mean, it was really incredible.
Shadow: Yeah.
Molly: No, I mean it, Shadow. How did you do it? You destroyed those ships in seconds flat! My comrades and I were really impressed, and I just...
[Shadow walks away, but Molly follows.]
Molly: I just want to learn more about you, like where you learn to battle like that. You were amazing!
Shadow: Drop it, OK?
[Molly stops.]
Molly: Oh no! I didn't mean to make him angry.
Rouge: Don't worry, hun. He's always grumpy.
Molly: Why is that?
Rouge: You got me. But just 'cause he's a hero doesn't mean he's Prince Charming. That strong silence just drives me batty.
[Molly catches up with Shadow again.]
Molly: Wait. You attacked four Metarex ships like it was nothing at all! I've never seen bravery like that before. It was like the legend of Black Wind.
Shadow: Never heard of him.
[She nods as a shot of a hero with a billowing caps is shown.]
Molly: [Voice-over] Long ago, there was a great hero named Black Wind. We called him that because he came out of the night to fight for our people and was never seen again.
[The shot ends.]
Molly: For a moment, when I first saw you outside of my ship, I thought that maybe you were him. You're a hero!
[Shadow walks away again.]
Molly: Shadow?
Shadow: You're wrong. I'm no hero.
Rouge: That's right! He's just out for himself, aren't you, Shadow?
[Shadow stops.]
Shadow: Well, you should talk. You do just about anything to get what you want.
[Rouge is appalled, and Shadow continues walking away.]

[Scene Change: With Eggman]

[Eggman, Decoe, and Bocoe are feasting with the other humans.]
Leon: That's right, Doctor. If you hadn't come along, who knows what could have happened?
Human 1: Thanks to you, the resistance lives on!
Dr. Eggman: You're too kind. It was the least I could do for my fellow revolutionaries.
[Bokkun sips his drink.]
Human 3: You are a truly noble and honorable warrior, sir!
Decoe and Bocoe: Mhm!
Humans: Hear, hear!
Decoe: Maybe now would be a good time to ask about that Chaos Emerald-- Oops!
[The hench-bots break into a sweat. Bokkun sweat-drops]
Dr. Eggman: Ahem, perhaps you're right, Decoe. I would be ticked to continue assisting your mission, provided we find a way to, shall we say, sweeten the deal.
Leon: You got it. After all, it's only fair. You've proven yourself to be a great ally, sir.
Human 1: That's right. You deserve it!
Leon: We don't often find like-minded freedom fighters such as yourself. What's ours is yours, sir. Ever since our planet was destroyed, we have no need for a Chaos Emerald. Passing it on to such a worthy and brilliant man would indeed be an honor.
Human 4: Comrade Leon speaks for all of us, sir. A Chaos Emerald is the least we can give for our invaluable friendship. We humbly thank you.
Molly: [Off-screen] What's going on?
[They turn to see Molly, Shadow, and Rouge enter the room. One explanation later...]
Leon: We're giving him the Emerald. I need you to get it.
Molly: If you think it's best, then I suppose we should. But we hid it so long ago, I-I cant remember where.
Leon: Let me think... You'll need to fly to Cascade where Satellite City Industrial District once was. There's a factory there with three windows at the top.
Rouge: Then what?
Leon: It's in a safe deposit box right there on the main level.
Molly: Okay, we'll fly there right now.
[They start to leave, but Leon takes Molly's hand.]
Molly: Huh? What?
Leon: Melly... I need you to do something else. Something really important. You'll see a small locked cabinet directly above the safe deposit box. Being me whatever files are in there.
[Leon hand the key to Molly.]
Molly: I don't get it. Why would you need a bunch of dusty old files?
Leon: Simple. They are historical records on the Metarex invasion that just might prove useful to us.
Molly: Sure. I'm on it!
[As he watches the three go, Leon's hands tighten into fists. Leon and Eggman exchange glances.]

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[Shadow air-skates along the rugged landscape, with a Cascadian fighter flying alongside him.]
Molly: You wouldn't know it, but this was once a beautiful place.
Rouge: You're right, honey; I wouldn't know. I guess I'll have to take your word for it.
Molly: There was a time when Cascade was a proud and glorious planet. But that time was so long ago. Way before the Metarex came...
[A shot of Cascade in the past is shown. It is full of futuristic buildings and flying cars.]
Molly: The galaxy had never seen a greater planet. We were the mightiest of all peoples, and with out superior intelligence and advanced technology, there was no telling how far our dominion could extend.
[The flashback ends.]
Molly: And then in the blink of an eye, all of out hopes were destroyed. Since that first attack, we have had to fight to stay alive.
Rouge: So, they've been sockin' it to you all this time, huh? What is it those Metarex want from you anyway?
Molly: I guess all they want is to defeat us. Whatever else they wanted, they've already taken. There's nothing left anymore.
Rouge: Well... why don't you guys just go somewhere else? Don't you ever get tired of fighting?
Molly: Sure we do. But they still haven't taken our hope away.
[She looks down at Shadow.]
Molly: The hope that soon, Cascade will be beautiful and alive again like it once was, and it will be. I'm sure it will! And with Shadow's help, I just know we'll beat them.
[Rouge also looks at Shadow. Later on, Molly, Rouge, and Shadow walk through a canyon. A river flows nearby. Suddenly a giant fish leaps out of the water and menaces them. Molly stands in front of Shadow and Rouge.]
Molly: I got him!
[She fires four rounds from her pistol to get rid of the threat. The water behind her explodes with many more fish. Shadow and Rouge fight them.]
Shadow: Come on!
[Shadow takes Molly and Rouge safely away from the fish.]
Shadow: You might want to think about letting one of us walk ahead for a bit. You know, just for safety's sake.
Rouge: Plus, you're the only one of us who knows where this place is. It'd be silly to put you in danger.
Molly: It's all right. The spirit of Black Wind is with me.
[She lets go of Shadow's hand.]
Molly: Come on, you two. Follow me! The factory's over here!
[She hurries onwards.]
Rouge: I don't like it. My radar's tellin' me there was something extra fishy about those piranhas.
Shadow: I never thought I'd say this, but I think you're right. That attack was an ambush if I ever saw one.
[Rouge watches Molly go.]
Rouge: So you're saying some boob set up a booby trap, huh? Any suspects?
Shadow: ...I have my suspicions.
Rouge: You feel like sharing?
Shadow: Come on; Molly's waiting for us. I don't want her alone in there!
[Shadow hurries after Molly. Rouge huffs and follows.]

[Scene Change: The mine]

[The mine is relatively undamaged after the Metarex attack. Molly opens a box containing rocks, as well as the white Chaos Emerald.]
Rouge: Hello! Come to mama!
[She tries to reach for it, but Shadow takes it.]
Shadow: Don't forget; I got my eye on you.
Rouge: Oh, come on. We're on the same team, aren't we, shadow?
Shadow: Sure we are.
Rouge: How insulting!
Molly: Let's see... Here it is!
[She opens the locker, only to find a time bomb. Shadow leaps her and Rouge out of the building just before the bomb explodes.]
Rouge: What happened?
Shadow: Someone deliberately put that bomb in the cabinet. Who gave you the key, Molly?
Molly: [Gasps] It was Leon!
[She watches the burning building.]
Molly: It can't be true. He would never! It can't be!
[Suddenly, a MRTX-1 warship flies directly over them.]
Rouge: Well, lookie here.
[And there are many other warships with it.]
Shadow: [On radio] Doctor, do you read me? Doctor!
[But there is only static.]
Rouge: That double-crossing Leon. He and his comrades have been cooking up some nasty little deal, but they had to get Molly out of the way.
Molly: You're wrong...
[She turns around.]
Molly: He'd never hurt me. Not ever!

[Scene Change: The Cascade base]

Molly: [Voice-over] We're all a team. They'd never betray me!
[Leon is communicating to Pale Bayleaf via video screen.]
Pale Bayleaf: [Over video] I must admit, when you first approached me with your request, I was quite taken aback. You and your feisty friends have been battling us for so long, I thought you would never give up. But I understand, of course. Fighting such as this can be quite exhausting, especially when one is on the losing team.
Leon: That's right. Which is why we have all decided to join forces with you.
Pale Bayleaf: And the girl? I would be quite surprised if she agrees to such an arrangement.
Leon: She won't. But don't worry; I've sent her some-place where she won't interfere. We'll hand over Eggman as promised. Now let's get this over with already.
Dr. Eggman: [Off-screen; laughs] I should think I should have a say in this diabolical deal.
[He turns around to see Eggman standing in the room.]
Dr. Eggman: You thought you were pretty clever, didn't you, my friend? But unfortunately, you're not clever enough.
[Leon points his pistol at Eggman.]
Leon: Don't move!
Dr. Eggman: [To Pale Bayleaf] And you there. You work for Dark Oak, I presume?
Pale Bayleaf: [Over video] You presume correctly. However, I am but one emissary of the great master. We are many.
Dr. Eggman: Hm. Well, you and your Meta-pals may have fooled our crafty comrade here, but fooling the great Eggman won't be so easy.
Leon: Hey! That's enough out of you!
[Eggman grins. Suddenly an explosion rocks the room, creating a hole in the roof. Leon and Eggman look up to see a giant robot - and it's not affiliated with the Metarex.]
Decoe: Dr. Eggman!
Bocoe: Our timing is impeccable!
[The robot is Eggman's E-3000.]

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[Molly climbs back into her ship and buckles up.]
Rouge: Please wait!
[She looks up to see Shadow and Rouge.]
Shadow: Don't go! You'll only get hurt!
[She loosens her grip on the control stick a little. She re-tightens her grip with all she has.]
Rouge: Don't be foolish, Molly. Now isn't the time to go and get revenge on that Leon guy. It's way too dangerous.
Molly: I have to find out why.
[The hatch closes, and she starts to lift off into the air. Molly takes off into space.]
Shadow: I don't know what those guys are up to, but they want Molly out of the way. And I'm gonna stop them somehow.
[The Chaos Emerald Shadow is holding starts to glow.]
Rouge: Shadow?
Shadow: [Determined] I'm going. I don't know why, but I feel like I have to protect her... or something terrible will happen.

[Scene Change: With Eggman]

[The E-3000 stands by as the Crimson Egg lands nearby. Leon and his fleet are on the move.]
Leon: Hurry up! If we let Eggman get away, the Metarex will destroy every one of us!

[Scene Change: E-3000]

Dr. Eggman: I've had enough of this foolishness! E-3000, have a little fun, why don't you!

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[E-3000 starts grabbing fighters, including Leon's and embeds them into the ground like darts.]

[Scene Change: E-3000]

Dr. Eggman: Ha! Bulls-eye! A crushing defeat!
Bocoe: You can say that again!

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[Suddenly giant red beams strike down around them. The Metarex fleet is upon them, including Bayleaf's ship.]
Bocoe: [Crosstalk] What's going on here?

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

Pale Bayleaf: It looks as if there has been a change of plans. You have not kept your word, my friend. So disappointing.
Leon: [Over video] Wait! I promise you Eggman and you'll have him, I swear! I just need more time!
Pale Bayleaf: Unfortunately, patience is not my strong suit. You have dropped your end of the bargain. You lose.

[Scene Change: Cascade]

[Leon's ship is still embedded in the ground.]
Leon: No! Please!
Human 1: [Over radio] Leon, what are you saying?
Human 2: [Over radio] Will they let us join them? Will they?!
Leon: I... I don't know...
Molly: [Over radio] How could you do it, Leon?!
[Suddenly, Molly swoops in. Leon looks up in surprise.]
Molly: You made a deal with them. You wanted to abandon everything we worked so hard for! What about our planet? What about the promise we made to our ancestors?
Leon: [Shrieking] We've had enough!
[Molly is surprised.]
Human 1: We're too tired! We can't go on fighting like this forever!
Human 3: Every day is the same thing.
Human 2: If we surrender, the fighting will be over and we'll live forever.
Leon: Please understand, I can't go on like this anymore, Molly. I'm tired. ... You wouldn't have gone along with it! I'm sorry, but it was either us or you!
[Tears prick Molly's eyes, and they start to fall. It appears that dream is shattered. Shadow lands on her craft's wing.]
Shadow: Don't cry, Molly!
[Her tears flow freely.]
Molly: Shadow...
Shadow: I'll be there any time you need me. Just like in that story, remember?
[The Chaos Emerald in his hand glows. Shadow leaps off her ship and, like the Black Wind of legend, easily destroys one of the MTRX-1 ships. Eggman witnesses this from the cockpit of the Crimson Egg.]
Molly: I'll show them... I'll keep fighting...
[Her tears flow again.]
Molly: I'll be back one day...
[Shadow passes her by. He sees her tear-stained face, but she is smiling. She lets out a war cry as she flies directly towards Pale Bayleaf's Battleship. Shadow looks on, astonished. Shadow looks up and sees that Bayleaf's fleet is leaving Cascade.]
Shadow: I'll keep fighting too, Molly. Maybe we'll meet again some day.
[In an effort to avenge her, Shadow removes his limiters and leaps toward the fleet. They open fire on him, but he avoids the lasers. He completely obliterates the fleet. Rouge looks on, before looking down sadly. Soon, the Crimson Egg leaves Cascade. The sun sets while Rouge and Shadow stand on Cascade's surface, near a cliff. Rouge stands a distance behind Shadow.]
Rouge: I gotta admit... That Molly chick? She was tougher than I thought.
Rouge: Hey Shadow? You okay?
Shadow: Sure. I'm fine.
Rouge: It's just... you seem to like her and all.
Shadow: Well, sure I liked her. She was a good kid. ... I just hope she'll be okay. She's all alone out there... that's all.
[After a while, Shadow tosses the Chaos Emerald to Rouge and leaves.]
Rouge: What?
Shadow: Give that to Eggman, will ya?
[Dust blows around Shadow as Rouge watches him walk away.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Eggman is also watching Shadow.]
Decoe: Doctor, we are getting a message from someone. Should I connect them now?
Dr. Eggman: Quickly.
[The transmission is activated to show a battered Pale Bayleaf. He is holding his own damaged head/helmet. He has survived Shadow's attack.]
Pale Bayleaf: Your luck is running out, Doctor.
[The episode ends and the credits roll.]
