===Cater-Killer's coming===
[[Sonic the Hedgehog (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Sonic]] arrives in [[Furville]] to warn the citizens of a giant armored [[Caterkiller]] heading towards the town. Successfully getting everyone out safely, Sonic and [[Miles "Tails" Prower (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Tails]] attempt to stop the giant Caterkiller before it arrives in [[Knothole]]. After Sonic manages to get himself and Tails through the robot by splitting his molecules through the armor, Tails overrides the robot and sends it into the ocean.

====Part 1====
  +
In the dark of night, Sonic runs to Furville and warns its citizens to evacuate he town. The citizens are skeptical but quickly scatter when they feel the earth quaking beneath their feet and see a robot headed towards them on the horizon. Sonic, having cleared the area, runs ahead to take on the Caterkiller.
  +
  +
====Part 2====
  +
Sonic reaches the Caterkiller Train and notices the giant robot is barreling ahead at over 100 miles per hour. He tries to use a Triple Sonic Spin on the robot, but finds himself unable to break through its sturdy frame. Sonic chases the locomotive menace when a hologram of Dr. Eggman is projected from one of its segments. Eggman taunts Sonic, telling him that Caterkiller will destroy Knothole next. Just as Sonic begins to worry about his friends in the village, Tails arrives on the Tornado and gives Sonic a lift.
  +
  +
====Part 3====
  +
Sonic asks Tails if he's figured anything out about the Caterkiller. Tails reveals that it runs on simple software and, if they can get inside, they can easily hack it. They jump off the Tornado and, by vibrating at super sonic speeds, Sonic phases himself and Tails through the Caterkiller's outer shell. Exhausted by the physical strain, Sonic is left to lay exhausted on the floor while Tails hacks the Caterkiller's systems.
  +
  +
====Conclusion====
  +
Tails flies Sonic out of the Caterkiller as it heads over a cliff and into the ocean below. Sonic tries to make a joke about it, but Tails doesn't understand what he means. Sonic decides to drop it as they head home.

===Dust Bunnie===
[[Bunnie D'Coolette (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Bunnie]] answering a distress call is shot down into [[Sand Blast City]]. [[Jack Rabbit]] kidnaps her and plans to use her as bait to lure Sonic back here. After releasing [[Robian]]s on Bunnie, Bunnie defeats them all and sends them on a rampage through the city, and returns home.

Bunnie is flying through the sky above Sand Blast City, heading for a distress signal in the area, when she finds herself shot by an explosive weapon. She falls through a hole in the city's force field and is knocked unconscious. When she wakes up, she finds herself in a small cell with a glass wall. Bunnie tries to break the wall down, but it only cracks slightly when she punches it.
  +
  +
On the other side of the glass, Jack Rabbit mocks her, explaining that his crew sent out a fake SOS to lure Sonic to Sand Blast City. Jack tells her that he wanted to get revenge on Sonic, but he'll enjoy taking his frustration out on her instead. Bunnie asks what he's planning, and Jack reveals that he's going to release a swarm of Robians in her cell. Bunnie argues with Jack about Sonic's intentions when he left Sand Blast City, but Jack doesn't care and leaves her to be torn apart by the Robians.
  +
  +
Outside, Jack is telling his fellow Sand-Blasters that Sonic will probably come looking for his missing friend before long when Bunnie bursts out of her cell, having fought off the Robians. The Robians start to chase after Jack and his friends while Bunnie flies home.

[[Rotor Walrus|Rotor]] attempts to crack [[Nicole (Pre-Super Genesis Wave)|Nicole]]'s programming to find out where she's truly from. Nicole reveals in her own memories that [[Rotor Walrus (future version)|Rotor of the future]] designed her and sent her back in time. Rotor inspired to create the perfect computer network gets to work, and [[Doctor Eggman (Archie)|Dr Robotnik]] still can't get into Nicole's programming.

NICOLE tries to convince Rotor that he'll never be able to access her hard drive, but Rotor argues that he's prepared, having upgraded his equipment. She argues that there's no use in trying to figure out where she came from, but Rotor is persistent. He tells her that there's nothing he loves more than solving puzzles and warns her that he's going to try and hack her systems. She asks him to go easy on her.

NICOLE refuses to answer anything she's asked, blowing a raspberry at Rotor after he tries to just beg for an answer. Rotor decides to give up for now and asks if she's happy, but NICOLE retorts that Rotor ''would'' be. She secretly thinks back to her creation, where her world's Rotor tells Queen Sally and King Sonic about her and how she'll be impervious from hackers from the past. NICOLE asks Rotor to take her back to Castle Acorn, but Rotor says it'll have to wait: her programming has inspired him to fix his own security systems.
