"Countdown To Disaster – Part One"
Writer: Nigel Kitching
Artist: Richard Elson

The repairs on the Death Egg are finished! All that is needed for the takeoff is a source of infinite energy to power it. A source named: The Master Emerald!

Below the island's surface, Sonic and Knuckles have followed the tunnels to a live volcano right in the middle of the Launch Base Zone, with the Death Egg sitting atop! They arrive to see the Emerald Chamber open, and the Master Emerald gone. Without its energy, the Floating Island is doomed to crash on Mobius in a few hours.

They search the chamber, and discover a new and improved Metallix charging itself up on the Master Emerald's power.
