This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "Trick Sand".

[As the Blue Typhoon cruises onwards, the red Chaos Emerald can be seen floating in space. Reflections of Shadow the Hedgehog can be seen on the Emerald.]
Chris: [Voice-over] Shadow...
[A lengthy flashback from Showdown in Space begins. Chris tries to plead with Shadow.]
Shadow: It's useless. I made a promise to Maria, and I'm keeping it.
Chris: Shadow, getting revenge won't bring Maria back.
Shadow: So what?
Chris: There's still time to stop this, Shadow! Please, you have to listen to me!
[The scene cuts to Super Sonic and Super Shadow holding back Space Station ARK.]
Tails: You can do it, Sonic!
Dr. Eggman: Give it all you got, Shadow!
Rouge: If you fail, the entire planet will be destroyed!
Knuckles: Tough it out, you guys!
Maria: [In Shadow's head] Shadow... Those people need you, Shadow.
Super Shadow: [Determined] I am Shadow! Shadow the Hedgehog!
[He casts off his limiters, intensifying his power.]
Super Shadow: [To Super Sonic] You ready?
Super Sonic: You bet! Here we go!
[They prepare a massive amount of energy.]
Super Shadow: Chaos...
Super Sonic: Control!
[After the two hedgehogs use Chaos Control to to teleport the space station back into the atmosphere, Sonic hands Chris one of Shadow's limiters. Chris allows a single tear to fall on it.]

[The opening theme plays]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Chris' room]

[An alarm light next to Chris' bed flashes, awakening him from his sleep. He presses a button which answers the radio call he has just received.]
Chris: [On radio] What's going on, Tails?
Tails: [Over radio] Chris, come to the bridge right away! I think we've found another one!
Chris: [On radio] Okay. I'll be right there.
[He feels his forehead.]
Chris: Man, that sure was a weird dream...
[Chris sees something next to the photo of his parents. He reaches over and picks up one of Shadow's limiters, and studies it.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[Sonic and Tails see Chris entering the bridge.]
Tails: Hey Chris, it's coming from-- Huh?
[But he just walks past them and takes his seat. Sonic approaches him.]
Sonic: What's up, buddy? You don't look so good.
Chris: Uh... I don't?
Sonic: You're all sweaty.
Chris: Yeah, I'm okay. Weird nightmare.
[He wipes his forehead.]
Sonic: Well, good thing it's over.

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Project Shadow room]

[Rouge returns to the Project Shadow room.]
Rouge: Let's see...
[She runs over, and sees the red Chaos Emerald installed in the Project Shadow machine.]
Rouge: How pretty. I couldn't possibly resist.
[But the moment she touches the Chaos Emerald, an alarm sounds throughout the ship.]
Rouge: Aahh! I take that back!

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Cockpit]

[Decoe and Bocoe sit up straight in their seats.]
Decoe: The alarm! The alarm!
Bokkun: Intruder in the secret laboratory!
[Decoe and Bocoe get up and run in circles in a panic.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg - Project Shadow room]

[The alarm is still going off. Rouge sees Shadow in the stasis chamber.]
Rouge: Shadow? What in the world's he doing here? I haven't seen him since he--
Dr. Eggman: [Off-screen] Well, if it isn't my old friend Rouge.
[Rouge turns to see Eggman behind her. He bends down to Shadow.]
Dr. Eggman: I see you've stumbled upon my shadowy little secret.
Rouge: And here I thought I was the sneaky one. What are you up to, anyway?
Dr. Eggman: You will find out all in good time, my sly little spy, but not until I'm good and ready.
[The door to the Project Shadow room opens.]
Dr. Eggman: Out!
Rouge: I'll save this for ya, Eggy -- you sure know how to keep a gal in suspense.
[Rouge exits the room. Eggman follows her own and reseals the door. Decoe and Bocoe approach Eggman.]
Decoe: Dr. Eggman!
Bocoe: There is an intruder on board!
[Bokkun joins them, but hides behind Bocoe at the sight of Rouge.]
Decoe: It is her, Doctor! She is the intruder!
Dr. Eggman: Ridiculous! ... Rouge is a member of our team. She is our guest.
[Decoe and Bocoe glance at each other, while Bokkun looks nervous, obviously thinking about the locket.]
Rouge: From now on, it's all about teamwork. Right, fellas?
[She gently nudges Bokkun.]
Rouge: Bokkie knows about teamwork, doesn't he?
[Bokkun shivers in fear.]

[Scene Change: The space above Hobidon]

[The Blue Typhoon emerges from hyperspace above the planet Hobidon.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[Chris, Knuckles, Tails and Cream are on the bridge.]
Chris: The ship's scanner isn't showing any signs of life below. Maybe the Metarex took this Planet Egg away too.
Tails: Wow, if this keeps happening, there'll be no planets left anywhere in the galaxy! We've gotta stop 'em somehow, and fast!
Chris: You're right.
[A holo-image of the planet's surface is shown. It is a gloomy place. Two points are plotted at a run-down building.]
Tails: The Chaos Emerald is somewhere up ahead in those ruins.
[A spot containing a wrecked tower is shown.]
Chris: Yeah, but where exactly?
Tails: There's only one way to find out.
Amy: This'll be a cinch. All we have to do is split into two groups. I'll go with Sonic.
Tails: Why do you always get to go with Sonic?
Amy: I'll tell you why. Throughout history, behind every great hero, there's a great woman guiding him!
Tails: Really?
[Sonic shrugs.]

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

[Chris, Sonic, Amy, Cosmo, and Knuckles are deciding who will go where.]
Chris: We'll use our comlinks to stay in contact.

[Scene Change: Hobidon - With Sonic's Team]

[Sonic, Amy, and Knuckles are starting to cross an old bridge. Amy is annoyed at Knuckles' presence.]
Amy: Why do you have to tag along, anyway? Sonic and I can do just fine on our own, thank you very much. You're just excess baggage!
Knuckles: This wasn't my idea. You're no picnic either, you know.
Amy: Oh, let's just get on with it!
[She yanks Sonic along with her.]

[Scene Change: Hobidon - With Chris' Team]

[Chris and Cosmo are standing in front of a ruined space colony.]
Chris: Looks like this was some kind of space colony.
Cosmo: Until the Metarex came.
Chris: I guess so. I wonder how long it's been deserted?

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: [On communicator] Amy, have you checked inside that old castle yet?

[Scene Change: Hobidon - With Sonic's Team]

Tails: [Over communicator] According to my scanner, the Chaos energy is much stronger in there. I think you should make that the first place you look.
[Amy leads Sonic and Knuckles through the front gates of an old abandoned house.]
Amy: [On communicator] Good idea, Tails. We're heading in now.
[A thick mist covers them as they proceed. Knuckles and Sonic find themselves walking slower with caution.]
Knuckles: Amy, you getting a reading?
[Amy is still looking at her communicator, reading the data.]
Amy: [Sarcastically] No, Knuckles. I'm looking at my wrist for the fun of it.
Knuckles: [Annoyed; To Sonic] Just a simple question.
Sonic: Just drop it.

[Scene Change: The abandoned house]

[Amy, Sonic, and Knuckles are now inside the house. There are two staircases, old portraits, and a chandelier swinging freely above them. Amy thinks she sees a giant glowing eye in the middle of where the chandelier attaches to the ceiling.]
Amy: Let's see here... My unerrantly accurate search instincts are telling me this is the right place to start!
[She runs up one of the staircases. The others follow her down a corridor. They walk cautiously down the corridor, stopping in front of a wooden door.]
Amy: Let's see if this opens...
[She cautiously pushes the door open, and they advance through the room. A blip on the Communicator shows that the Chaos Emerald is on the other side of a door. Amy pushes open the door and enters the room. She looks around the small room to see that there is no Emerald there.]
Amy: But... Why would it lead us to an empty room?
[Sonic and Knuckles enter the room.]
Sonic: Well?
[The blip moves to the other side of the wall.]
Knuckles: That Chaos Emerald is moving!
[Suddenly the door slams and the room is bathed in an intensely bright light. Amy clings to Sonic in fright. Knuckles punches the door down and gapes at what he sees.]
Knuckles: What is this?!
[The three exit the room to see that they are now in a larger, entirely different room.]
Amy: I'm not so sure I really want to know.
Knuckles: Don't just stand there! Check the scanner!
[A Sonic symbol and the flashing word ERROR appears on the screen.]
Sonic: [Shocked] It disappeared!
Amy: But that's impossible!
Sonic: Unless...
Knuckles: It's some kind of trap.
Sonic: Well, we'll never know until we find out.
[He continues on, followed by Knuckles and Amy. Sonic opens a door and sees a figure at the end of a corridor.]
Amy: I don't like this.
[Sonic approaches them.]
Amy: Don't you think we should send Knuckles in first?
[She runs after Sonic. Knuckles shrugs and walks after them.]

[Scene Change: The abandoned space colony]

[Chris and Cosmo beam flashlights around the dark room.]
Chris: This must have been the center of the colony's operations.
Cosmo: I'll see if I can find anything over here.
[But as Cosmo starts walking, she accidentally trips and drops her flashlight over a railing into the room below.]
Cosmo: That was clumsy! I'll go get it.
[She gets up and leaps over the railing, floating down into the room below. She quickly retrieves her flashlight.]
Cosmo: There we go.
Chris: You alright down there, Cosmo?
Cosmo: Yes. Everything's OK!
[She accidentally presses a button, which beams a light across the room, illuminating the floating dust.]

[Scene Change: The abandoned house]

[Sonic, Amy, and Knuckles approach the figures. They turn out to be their own reflections in a mirror.]
Amy: Just as I thought. They're trying to confuse us, but it won't work!
[She leans against the mirror, but it spins, sending her through to a room on the other side.]
Sonic: Amy!
[Sonic and Knuckles crash through the mirror - and tumble into empty space. They hit their heads on the ground below, and slowly sit up. Amy runs over and hugs Sonic. They slowly stand up.]
Knuckles: Somebody's playin' with us!
Amy: Well, I don't like this game anymore.
[They look up to see that the glowing eye is back. Just as quickly as it appears, it is gone.]
Knuckles: Sonic, I think it's time we got out of here.
Sonic: OK. Hang on to me, Amy.
[Amy grabs on to Sonic, and they leap through a window into another room. A strange feeling falls on them as the camera pans around them. Sonic opens one of the doors to reveal a wall right in front of it. Knuckles opens another door to reveal another wall.]
Knuckles: We're walled in.
[There is also a wall in front of a door Amy has opened.]
Amy: Now what?
[Sonic closes his door.]

[Scene Change: The abandoned space colony]

[Chris and Cosmo are watching a video projection recorded by an alien called a Hobidon, a former resident of the space colony.]
Hobidon: [In recording] If you are watching this, then you have somehow found a way onto our home planet which was destroyed along with most of its citizens many years ago by evil Metarex monsters. Those of us who survived built this space colony in the hopes that one day we could make contact with others, and eventually restore the glory of our planet, but the monsters destroyed it as well.
[Static starts to appear.]
Hobidon: [In recording] All is lost. Destroy them, or they will destroy you.
[The transmission ends.]
Cosmo: Why did they do it, Chris?
[After a moment of silence, the two exit the colony.]
Cosmo: How could we be foolish enough to think we could ever defeat them?
[Chris doesn't reply.]
Cosmo: Chris?
Chris: Yeah?
Cosmo: You look like you're lost in another world?
Chris: Just thinking about one.
Cosmo: You are?
Chris: You know, it's kind of funny... I had a strange dream last night about this guy we used to know named Shadow.
[A shot of Shadow is shown.]
Chris: Just when everyone in my world had lost hope, he and Sonic made us believe again.
Cosmo: You mean there's someone else like Sonic?
[Chris smiles, eyes glistening a little. Just then Cosmo's communicator sounds. She answers it.]
Tails: [Over Communicator] We've got an emergency!

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: [On Communicator] I lost 'em! My link with Amy cut off and I can't get through anymore!

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

Chris: What's going on?
Cosmo: Chris, the castle!
[Chris turns to see that Cosmo is pointing at a large castle in the distance.]

[Scene Change: The abandoned house]

[The walls appear to be rippling. Sonic leaps towards the wall, only to fly through it and out of the castle.]
Chris: [Off-screen] Gotcha!
[Sonic lands on the wing of Chris' spaceship which he is flying.]
Sonic: Thanks!
[He leaps off the plane and phases through the roof back into the room Knuckles and Amy are in, to show that the wall isn't real.]
Sonic: Time to fly, Knuckles!
[Then, with Knuckles carrying Amy, they all leap out of the abandoned castle and onto solid ground outside. Suddenly, one of the castle's towers disintegrates, and the nanites that once comprised it fly towards Sonic, grabbing him. Chris fires lasers at the nanites, but they fly through it. The nanites drag Sonic down into a purple swamp.]
Chris: Oh no!
[The nanites are Metarex Deserd, who is still under the swamp.]
Metarex Deserd: It appears your friend Sonic has sunk to an entirely new low!
Knuckles: It's talking!
Metarex Deserd: You meddling fools thought you could destroy us, but in the end, it is us who will destroy you!
[Amy and Knuckles approach the swamp.]
Amy: Sonic!
Chris: Hang on!
[Chris does a loop in midair and flies towards Metarex Deserd. He launches his nanites at Chris, who dodges. Chris fires a ring into the swamp. Powered by the ring, Sonic hurdles out of the swamp. However, Metarex Deserd cuts him off and transforms into a metal wall, causing him to bounce back. Knuckles runs towards him.]
Knuckles: I'm coming!
Sonic: OK!
[They link hands and begin spinning. Together they spin right through the wall which Metarex Deserd creates a hole in, and land on the other side. However, Metarex Deserd quickly fills the hole back up.]
Knuckles: Who knows what that thing is gonna turn into next!

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg]

[Eggman, Decoe, Bocoe, and Rouge watch the battle.]
Decoe: Sonic and Knuckles are sure having a time of it.
Bocoe: That's one tricky Metarex.
Dr. Eggman: Speaking of tricky, I have an assignment for you, Rouge.
Rouge: Oh yeah? I was wondering when you would say that.
Dr. Eggman: This assignment will require a great deal of skill on your part. If it is done to my satisfaction, you will get a Chaos Emerald!
[Decoe, Bocoe, and Bokkun panic.]
Bokkun: Give her a Chaos Emerald?! She's a double-crosser!
Rouge: Why the sudden generosity, Eggy?
Dr. Eggman: Just feeling magnanimous is all.
Rouge: [Wags finger] I'd be touched if it wasn't pure baloney.
Dr. Eggman: Now, don't be that way. Don't you at least want to hear what my brilliant plan is?
[A shot of Shadow in the stasis chamber is shown.]
Rouge: Okay, but only for the Emerald.
Dr. Eggman: I promise you won't regret it. [Laughs]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[Cream is looking at the monitor.]
Cream: Okay, Tails, the laser's at full power. We've got the target locked!
Tails: Fire the laser in scatter mode!
Cream: Ready!
[The cone of the Typhoon fires a laser that spreads and impacts Metarex Deserd, which is still a metal wall.]
Cream: It's a bulls-eye!
Cheese: Chao chao!

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

Knuckles: They got it!
[However, Metarex Deserd is not beaten. He reforms as a spiralling mass of nanites in the air, before changing into a giant toothy mouth.]
Metarex Deserd: Enough of your child's play! Your weapons have no effect on our omnipresent evil! Haha! Your destruction is at hand. It is too late to turn back!
[Deserd fires arrows of blue light that fall in groups of three around Knuckles, Sonic, and Amy, who run as fast as they can.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Tails: OK! Activate laser shield right away!
Cream: OK, Tails!

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

[Chris has a hard time dodging the arrows. Sonic runs under the Typhoon.]
Sonic: We can take shelter under here!
[Knuckles and Amy join Sonic, and the arrows are deflected by the Typhoon's shield.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Cream: It's too powerful for us, Tails! I don't think the shield can hold on for much longer!
Tails: Stay calm. We're not gonna let this thing beat us.
[As the ship shakes, the radar detects three blips.]
Tails: Hold steady...
[The light outside caused by Metarex Deserd intensifies.]

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

[Tails appears on Chris' video screen.]
Tails: [Over video] I'm pretty sure that weird Metarex up ahead swallowed the Chaos Emeralds. We may beat it if Sonic uses the Ring Tunnel.
Chris: Roger! Sonic!
[He launches a new pair of sneakers onto Sonic.]
Chris: Ring Tunnel!
[Chris fires a steady stream of Power Rings towards Sonic.]
Sonic: OK!
[He uses his sneakers to fly through the middles of the rings. The rings are projected towards Metarex Deserd.]
Chris: Let him have it, Sonic!
Sonic: You betcha!
[Sonic dodges the light arrows and hurtles towards a core, which is the power source of Metarex Deserd. However, upon making contact with the core, he is intensely electrocuted.]
Chris, Cosmo, Tails, Cream, Knuckles and Amy: Oh no!
Metarex Deserd: This will be the end of you, Sonic! [Laughs]
[The electricity stops, and sonic plummets unconscious towards the ground.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Cosmo: What do we do? He's been hurt!

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

[Chris flies towards Sonic.]
Chris: I'm coming!
[Sonic slowly opens his eyes and sees Chris approaching. Metarex Deserd unleashes his light arrows again.]
Sonic: Turn around! It's too dangerous!
[But Chris is determined.]
Chris: I don't care!
[Chris' craft is struck by the arrows and goes down.]
Sonic: Chris!
[As the red Chaos Emerald in the Project Shadow machine glows, another one of Shadow's limited emeralds appears in front of Chris, also glowing red. Chris cries out.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg]

[Eggman's command chair descends into the rooms below.]
Dr. Eggman: Shadow? What's happening in there?
Rouge: Hey, wait for me!
[Rouge quickly joins him. The hench-bots peer down. Suddenly the Project Shadow machine explodes. As black smoke billows from the machine, Shadow the Hedgehog emerges from it bearing the red Chaos Emerald. As Rouge and Eggman approach, Shadow looks around before sensing the presence of the purple Chaos Emerald. He looks down at the Emerald as it begins to glow. Eggman enters the code to open the door.]
Dr. Eggman: Now, what's that blasted code again?
Shadow: Time for Chaos Control.

[Scene Change: Hobidon]

[Chris continue flying towards Sonic.]
Sonic: Chris, noooo!
[Suddenly a beam of light whizzes by Sonic, deflects off Chris' spaceship, and strikes the core, blowing it up and effectively destroying Metarex Deserd. Knuckles and Amy hold on so they aren't blown away by the explosion's shock wave. As Sonic lands on one of the castle's towers, everyone looks as the clouds clear away, revealing a crescent moon. Sonic looks over to see Shadow standing on another tower. The red and purple Chaos Emeralds orbit him.]
Sonic: What in the world? Whoa!
[Everyone is equally as surprised to see Shadow standing there… except Chris, who is unconscious on the ground. He wakes up and sees Shadow.]
Chris: Am I seeing things...?
[Shadow stands there.]
Chris: Shadow!
[His eyes meet Chris' for a brief moment.]
Shadow: Chaos Control.
[He uses Chaos Control to leave.]
Chris: But he was...
[Everyone is speechless.]

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg]

[Shadow appears in front of an astonished Eggman and Rouge.]
Dr. Eggman: Shadow!
[He then collapses. The two Chaos Emeralds glow brightly. The episode ends and the credits roll.]
