I was wondering how S.P.E.A.R. got the technology to turn Mobians into Cyberniks. I started by thinking who knew how to turn Mobians into Cyberniks, Robotnik knew how, Grimer knew how, and Tekno knew how. I then thought that Tekno has a grudge against Robotnik, so I think Tekno joined S.P.E.A.R. to stop Robotnik and gave Mr. Gold the technology to turn Mobians into Cyberniks.
Through the Omni-Viewer. So really, the question is "why did Omni-Viewer go along with it?" - but one of the Robotniks gets the idea for #8 from this story, so maybe Omni-Viewer knew in advance that one day this story would happen...
(Alternatively he was planning a trap for Sonic afterwards but he got distracted by Femni-Viewer. And who wouldn't be? Phwoar!)
Mobius had three wise hedgehogs from the Eastern Zone, who brought gifts of sneakers, chilli dogs and rings to lay beside the manger in the Emerald Hill Zone cattle shed.
My take was that Vector et al didn't turn on Sonic until they were employed by GUN. When based on the Floating Island they weren't kept informed of Sonic's fugitive status (Knuckles isn't one for sharing), and the rest of the time I guess they just don't pay much attention to what's going on around them…
As for the Omni-Viewer, he can see everything so he already knows Sonic's innocent. He just hasn't thought to tell anyone.

The take I've adopted is that Omni had to help Chaotix fight Sonic and couldn't tell them the truth because his eventual redemption is a fixed point in time and cannot be brought about sooner or rewritten. I saw that on a documentary called Doctor Who once.
I was never under the impression that Omni could actually see the future.
He once claimed he was omnipotent but he was trying to sound tough at the time; everything else shows he only knows what he can personally see or be told about.
That's what I've always thought as well, that when he went off on an "omnipotent" rant he was just trying to intimidate people. Remember that he had to go back into Knuckles' timeline to check if he was telling the truth, and it still annoys me that it apparently hasn't occurred to him to check that Sonic's telling the truth.
Yeah, I'm sorry, but that's still a major sticking point with this storyline for me. It just doesn't make sense that someone with Omni's capabilities wouldn't think to do such a thing. Unless Omni's extraordinarily thick or has an atrocious memory...
Okay, I'll try to be fair and take into account that he's probably not heard Sonic's side of the story until now, so there's ample opportunity for him now to go back and remove any reasonable doubt. I have serious doubts that even Grimer's machinations were THAT effective.
Amy has been way too busy with the war to keep tabs on Nack. Still, Coal Creek do have a rather large army and were last seen fighting against Robotnik in #250. Hopefully Nack and The General have been too busy fending off Robotnik's forces to do anything too nefarious. I'm sure we'll find out what they've been up to sooner or later though.
The General doesn't actually have a name. I never referred to him as anything but 'The General' in my scripts so if someone wants to come up with a suitable name for him I'll use it the next time he appears.
Nack will probably use it as part of an insult so try not to make it sound too tough.
