The Egg Satellite is a spaceborne construct created by the genius madman Doctor Robotnik. It is armed with a powerful death ray weapon that can devastate entire regions.
Race Against Time
In STC #11s Sonic story "Time Racer", Sonic the Hedgehog was lured to the far side of Mobius by Robotnik, who had kidnapped his best friend Tails and imprisoned him within a castle in a zone made of fiery pits. With half the world between Sonic and the Emerald Hill Zone, Robotnik activated his Egg Satellite's death ray in order to annihilate Emerald Hill. The ray took 5 seconds to charge up, which should have been far too little time for Sonic to make it back. By some miracle, however, Sonic was able to reach unheard-of speeds and return home in time. He headed for the beach and used his speed to fuse the sand into glass, creating a giant mirror. Sonic used the mirror to reflect the Egg Satellite's beam back into space and destroy the satellite completely. Emerald Hill suffered minimal damage but there were no casualties.
Season Of GoodwillIn the STC #93 story "Season of Goodwill", Doctor Robotnik has built another satellite much like the first one. To reaffirm his "authority" to the people of Mobius (and to generally just ruin Christmas), Robotnik plans to use the satellite's heat ray to melt the snow in the Happy Valley Zone and flood the region, destroying everyone's homes. His scheme is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Father Christmas, who urges Robotnik not to use the satellite and gain peace of mind. Robotnik refuses Santa's offer but cannot use the satellite, for Shortfuse the Cybernik has flew into orbit and destroys it.
- The name "Egg Satellite" is unofficial as it was never named in the comic, but it is egg-shaped, much like the Death Egg which is not to be confused with.
- It is sometimes referred to as "Robotnik's Space Satellite".
