Skirmish in the Sky, known as Idou Yousai Egg Fort Shuurai! (移動要塞エッグフォート襲来!) in Japan, is the fifteenth episode of Sonic X.


Chris Thorndyke, Ella, Tails, Cream and Amy Rose are going shopping at the Station Square Mall. However, embarrassment occurs when they can't go shopping without making a scene. Meanwhile, Dr. Eggman decides that now is the perfect time to launch his brand-new battleship, the Egg Fortress.

The Egg Fortress drops robots to assault Station Square, leaving the team trapped. Sonic comes at the last second, but makes a fool of himself when he fails to get on board. Luckily, some of Eggman's robotic falcons appear to annihilate Sonic, and he uses one of them to get closer to the battleship.

Decoe manages to command the falcons to self-destruct, and Sonic grabs the Egg Fortress, but loses his grip and falls. He is rescued by the X-Tornado, but it is damaged by the fortress' main power cannon. Sonic quickly grabs two power rings, charges up a Spin Dash and destroys the Egg Fortress' bridge, which blows up the ship, causing it to fall into the depths of the sea.
