Plot

At his lair, Dr. Eggman has packed up for a villain retreat for a week, leaving Orbot and Cubot in charge. Deciding not to leave it easy on Sonic, he explains that he networked his Bee Bots to automatically attack members of Team Sonic on sight while he's away. Soon, the team finds themselves under attack from Bee Bots. They head over to Eggman's lair to find out what Eggman wants, only to learn Eggman is away and neither Orbot nor Cubot have the security level needed to deactivate the bots. The gang then decides to take care of it themselves. Working together, they manage to heard the majority of the Bee Bots into a cave and block in with a force field, though Sticks wonders if one or two may still be loose.

Later, at Tails' workshop, Tails does a test run of his new matter transporter, only for a spare Bee Bot to fly into his teleport chamber at the last second. At Meh Burger, the rest of team sees the result: Tails fused into a cyborg with Bee Bot parts. At the workshop, they contemplate simply using the transporter to reverse the process, but the control test ends in a messy and discouraging failure. As Tails suddenly begins to hear voices, Soar the Eagle reports on disaster on Tommy Thunder's newest movie set. The team heads out and Tails uses his cyborg parts to rescue the avalanche victims.

Returning to Hedgehog Village, Tails begins expressing delight at his new form. That night, he has a nightmare where the others ostracize him for his new form and the voices return. The next day, he refuses to save Chumley and decides to finds others to hang out with. Namely, the captured Bee Bots the network had linked him to. He frees them and declares himself their king. The team begins to fight back, but Sonic calls them off when he discovers the network link means Tails feels the pain of their destruction. Instead, Sonic finds Eggman at the villain's retreat and convinces him to help to get his Bee Bots back.

Back at the workshop, Eggman succeeds at making the transporter process reverse and concocts a plan to lure Tails in. Namely, having Sonic dress up as a sunflower and walk around town. It works and Tails and the Bee Bots give chase back to the workshop. Though reluctant to fight, Eggman convinces them that by destroying enough Bee Bots, the network link will weaken enough to capture him. It works and enough are smashed to render Tails unconscious. Sonic places him in the transporter and Eggman reverses the process, returning Tails to normal. Eggman leaves, laughing that the sunflower costume was just to humiliate Sonic, while the team discusses what they learned: not turn into a bee.
