Sonic's world…

Chris Thorndyke was heading to earth in the space in Eggman's Pod…

Outer Space…

5pm…

Chris instead landed into Emperor Velo the 27th's citadel thanks to a meteor shower…

Chris's POV :

"What the…

Is this Earth ?

Mom and dad are gonna be so jealous when i…"

Chris opened the pod's doors…and falls,

Tiny caught Chris's ankle…

He was about to eat Chris when…

"Tiny, put him down…"

Tiny sadly obeys a young girl in a wheelchair's voice as Chris ran to the pod which was on Cortex Castle's roof…

Helen

"Chris ?

Is that you ?"

Chris

"Helen ?"

Helen was one of Chris's best friends when in was at Earth…

Before Chris and Helen could have a talk, Emperor Velo XXVII's hologram appeared :

Velo

"I am Emperor Velo XXVII, ruler of this galaxy!

My subjects hunger for entertainment, and word of your racing prowess has reached my glorious empire.

And I hope you put on a good show, especially since winning the circuit will win your freedom.

And if, for some reason, you refuse to race, your Earth will be... destroyed.

But... I don't think it will come to that.

Do you accept my challenge?"
