Following the events of the previous episodes, the crew of the Blue Typhoon worked on repairing and improving the Blue Typhoon. Hoping to reach the Metarex through the Intergalactic Cloister, the crew decided to travel through this strange part of space despite worrying about how Chris would get affected by the distortions inside the cloister. Along the way, the team faced several problems, especially the distortion of space matter which was so intense that it knocked the crew unconscious. After waking up, the heroes discovered the Typhoon had continued through the cloister on its own, but was now ensnared in space roots. As everyone pitched in with various tools to cut the vines, Sonic finished the job for them thanks to Chris's new invention, the Power Shoes. No sooner however, a row of massive pillars appear, blocking the Blue Typhoon's path.
Aboard a Metarex ship, Dark Oak had gathered with the other Metarex commanders and plotted to use this opportunity to destroy Sonic and his team once and for all, but the Metarex leaders begin fighting over who will attack the helpless heroes. In the end, Yellow Zelkova was chosen for this mission by Dark Oak. Back at the Blue Typhoon, the heroes ponder on how to get through the pillars. No sooner though, Zelkova appear and attack them. Sonic subsequently sent the others inside the ship while he and Knuckles faced this new threat. Immediately, Zelkova begins bombarding Sonic and Knuckles with the pillars blocking their path while they tried to attack him. However, despite using the best of their skills, Yellow Zelkova proved too strong and tough for the duo to stop. As such, the heroes come up with a new plan. Tricking Zelkova to smash into the Blue Typhoon, Sonic and Knuckles made the Metarex knock the Blue Typhoon loose, thereby freeing it. Sonic then used the Sonic Power Cannon to defeat Zelkova, albeit it did not destroy him, while blowing away the pillars blocking the Blue Typhoon's path. Relishing in their victory, the hero continued forward.
