Story One[]

"Deadliest of the Species" - Part Three

Hamlin, Princess Sally, and Dylan are engaged in a firefight with a mob of SWATbots inside the final substation powering Robotroplis' defense systems. Dylan wonders if it was a good idea to charge in with Arlo, Penelope, and Geoffrey St. John missing. Hamlin insists that Geoffrey's nothing but a coward when the catwalk he's standing down is shot down by the SWATbots. Sally helps him back up and the three burst into the next room, finding themselves face to face with Dr. Robotnik and Geoffrey.

Hamlin rushes at Geoffrey, ready to pound him into submission for betraying the team, when Sally tells him to knock it off since Geoffrey is "on the same side". Robotnik reveals that Sally is actually a perfect robot copy, the substations were never weak points in Robotropolis' defense systems, he spread the rumors about the substations to test his Sally android, he's in the process of replacing the other Freedom Fighters with robot copies, and Geoffrey had previously delivered the real Sally to him. Robotnik decides that the real Sally is no longer useful to him and attempts to roboticize her. However, the process ends up overloading the system and causes it to explode.

The "robot" Sally reveals that she was the real Sally all along and had simply been deceiving Robotnik. She demands Robotnik surrenders, but instead he activates his Stealth 'Bots. The 'Bots grab Sally, Hamlin, and Dylan, but Geoffrey calls for backup. The members of the Rebel Underground, along with Penelope and Arlo, arrive in a massive drilling machine and blast the 'Bots. In retaliation, Robotnik sets the base to self-destruct and escapes via a secret elevator. The Stealth 'Bots crash the drilling machine, so the group runs to the base's hangar, hijack a set of hovercrafts, and escape just as the place explodes. Sally offhandedly mentions that, since the facility was Robotnik's robo-duplicate plant, they won't have to worry about robotic doppelgangers for a long time.

Back in the forest, Sally awards Hamlin, Dylan, Penelope, and Arlo with official Freedom Fighter status and explains how the plan worked: they activated the Sally android prematurely to learn what its objectives were, the members of the Rebel Underground retrieved Penelope and Arlo when they were left behind, and switched the android Sally for the real Sally before attacking the final substation. The next morning, Sally insists Geoffrey come back to Knothole to help the Freedom Fighters, but he insists that he has to lead the Rebel Underground. He gives her a kiss and they head their separate ways.
