Chaotix Goes Into Space is the 7th episode in the second season, and the 59th overall episode of Sonic X. In the English dub, it is known as Galactic Gumshoes.


Back in Chris' world, Chuck Thorndyke explains to Nelson and Lindsey that because Chris locked the teleporter after him, no one else can follow him to Sonic's world. However, they can send objects.

At that moment, Vanilla is standing by the empty Master Emerald shrine, the same place Chris arrived at when he teleported. As she wonders how Cream is doing, a pile of Chris' belongings appears. Vanilla contacts the Chaotix Detective Agency to check on Cream and deliver the packages to Chris. Smitten as usual with Vanilla, Vector agrees, despite their lack of a spaceship. Luckily, the next object to appear is...a bright red spaceship.

Sonic and Knuckles spend most of the episode MIA because Sonic falls overboard early on, and Knuckles heads out to rescue him with a jetpack. When the Chaotix catch up to the Blue Typhoon, the latter's crew don't recognize them, and prepare to attack when they board. All three are mistaken for enemies and receive severe thrashings. They decide to withdraw, but Tails chases them down in the X-Tornado. When he gets close, he recognizes their detective office (which is simply stuck onto the top of the ship) and has Chris capture them. After the Blue Typhoon crew make their apologies, Chris unloads his packages, reflecting that his parents have always expressed their caring by sending him presents.

As the Chaotix have tea with Cosmo and Cream, Vector begins to think that Vanilla meant for him to bring Cream back home entirely. He kidnaps her, along with Cheese and Cosmo, who slips in the bag at the last moment. The Blue Typhoon chases down the Chaotix as Sonic returns, and he boards their ship to take Cream back. Vector still refuses to let her go until Chris intervenes, explaining that a real family is always connected even if they are far apart.

It seems that things will end happily as Espio faxes Vanilla a photo of a smiling, happy Cream. However, aboard the Crimson Egg, Rouge makes a surprising discovery: hidden in a dark room is one very familiar looking stasis pod...
