Vector snores soundly before being awoken by a faint noise from outside. He lifts up his head from his desk, stretching his arms while letting out a big yawn. As he gets up from his chair, he walks over to the window to look down at the crowd of people gathered around the pod. Upon furhter inspection, he notices a small bird in front of it panicking as others around her were moving in fear.
"Oh no, what's happened since i passed out??" Vector asks himself as he quickly truns around, grabbing hte rest of his coffee from his desk and rushing out the door. He runs toward the stairwell and leaps down the middle, rocketing down to the ground floor for a quick exit out of the building and begins making his way through the crowd to get to the center.
While all the commotion was going on, the Chief of the Police force had already made his way to the pod and rushed over to Tekno
"What's going on here? Who gave you the clearance to approach this?" Chief Hoppington asks, before looking into the pod with horror.
As the Battleship was falling apart around him, Storm was searching frantically to see where wave had flown off too. In a breif moment, he heard her call out to him as he turned to look at her racing towards him, however a large explosion erupted before his eyes, tearing off the metal bracket he was holding onto and flinging him out into open air amidst a dark cloud of gas and debris. Storm frantically attempted to get onto his extreme gear, however a large pole had struck him against his head, forcing into a stunned daze as he then began to fall down into the clouds below.
Knuckles & Gamma, Angel Island
As Gamma arrived at the top of the Master Emerald Shrine, it noticed a bright light flash in the distance. Gamma used it's eyes to zoom in as it could see the battle between Robotniks forces vs the battle birds. Gamma also detected that the upper atmosphere wind currents was starting to drag some of the debris over towards Angel Island as well.
"Current location is imminent to becoming an unsafe zone. Beginning extraction of the Emerald now." Gamma adds to it's log, however as it began to move forward, it felt a slight tug on it's leg. Looking down, Gamma had noticed Knuckles made his way up the stairs as well, and latched himself onto Gammas foot.
"I told you, you're not taking the Master Emerald!" Knuckles yells as he pulls Gammas leg from under it, causing the robot to fall face first. Knuckles then pulls it again to toss it back down the stairs as he then picks himself up and tries to catch his breath. His body still hurt from the cheap shot he recied earlier, as he slowly walked over to the Master Emerald and then turned back, ready to defend it from being taken. Just as he suspected, it took no time at all for Gamma to return back up the staircase.
"You are a persistent lifeform indeed." Gamma comments on Knuckles. The two pause for a moment as they turn around to see a fire set abalze amongst the forest.
"The eggpods have begun their extraction of this islands living, however I have made justs analysis that you are too dangerous to be taken alive." Gamma explains, as it turns back to Knuckles, raising it's arm as it began charging up it's blaster. Knuckles raised his arms up to try and guard the attack, as he feels a faint voice coming from the Master Emerald. He hesitates for a moment, however his focus was not taken off of Gamma as the robot fired a large ball of energy towards him. Knuckles clenches tightly as the blast collides with his arms, burning him greatly, however he continued to hold his ground. He had briefly closed his eyes upon impact, but as he opened them, he looked in front to see that his arms had a glowing line of green covering them as he was keeping the blast intact. He tried to dig his feet into the ground below and push back, however the force of it all left him in a standstill as Gamma watched on. Again he heard a voice whisper behind him, this time louder, sounding as if it was in pain. Knuckles turned his head to look, however that caused him to lose his balance as the blast then managed to pushed his arms out the way. With no other option left, Knuckles falls backwards as the blast zooms over him, hitting the Master Emerald square on as the entire gem then begins to shine brightly. In the matter of seconds that felt like an eternity to both Gamma and Knuckles, the Master Emerald erupts violently as it shatters from the impact, knocking Gamma completely off of the shrine top and back into the forest, and pinning Knuckles to the ground with sheer pressure alone. As Gamma was being thrown throw the trees, it attempted to send out one final distress signal back to the Wing fortress, before an aftershock wave of green energy hit it, short-circuiting the robot and briefing shutting it down. The pulsating blast was spreading out amongst the sky, cutting nearby clouds into oblivion and stretching out over half the world with sparkling lights as pieces of the Master Emerald flew off in every direction. Moments later, Angel Island began to drop out of the sky slowly, as it headed towards the ocean below.
