The variety of Egg Carriers that appear in various fiction.
Fast The Hedgehog
In the Fast The Hedgehog timeline, the Egg Carrier crash site is known for being a hangout spot.
In the scene "Eggman Comes To Danville", a second version of the Egg Carrier is seen. It's appearance is simillar to Sky Fortress from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II. This version is able to cross dimensions.
The Egg Carrier is planned to be a recurring airship in the Sonic fan games as the role of Dr. Robotnik's "home away from home". The destruction of the air ship is most certain at least once in each planned game (running gag) with the certainty of it's return the game after, if neccisary to the plot. The concept of this is a familiar base of operations (such as Dr. Robotnik's Lair from AoSTH or Robotnik's headquarters from SatAM or comics.) also being a mobile base allows it to be at conveniant locations such as scenes where Dr. Robotnik escapes or being parked at wherever he set up base for the game.
It will be one of the last Adventure Fields that Mystic Monkey can get too on his game (And the second Adventure Field from Sonic Adventure that has been remade). Sonic the Hedgehog is the ally located here who is on trying to stop Dr. Eggman's latest scheme. It's apperance is based on the first Egg Carrier (first seen in Sonic Adventure) he has restored and updated his latest Egg Carrier with it's own zone for defence, the Sky Deck Zone which is based after the Sky Deck on the original Egg Carrier but Eggman considered the latest Egg Carrier's defence with the Sky Base Zone, Wing Fortress Zone and the Flying Battery Zone in mind. Now the Sky Deck is so big and dangerous it is now classified as a zone.
It is still his mobile base which will be appearing in other EN?GMA Sonic fan games as Dr. Robotnik's mobile home.
Perhaps, if there will be events that Dr. Eggman needs to leave Metropolis for whatever reasons.
The Egg Carrier reappears in the game as one of Dr. Eggman's main bases. It has the exact same design from Sonic Heroes but more powerful and much more heavily armed with cannons and troops. In the game, Eggman gathers the Egg Carrier and his massive armada of battleships to battle against the Gravitus and Immarius. In the game, the Egg Carrier has a large laser cannons detected inside its mouth. Eggman uses ut to fire at the Gravitus mothership twice and once more to destroy the chains attached to the Angel Island. It is also a playable stage. It is the 11th level of the game.
Thunder DeckLike Final Fortress, Thunder Deck is pretty much the same. The level takes place aboard the deck of the Egg Carrier. It is very dark filled with platforms and Egg Troops. The sky is dark as well and is raining with thunders striking the fields. There are also many rails which lead to to the main control tower of the Egg Carrier. Egg Troops will attack the player here as common stage enemies.
This level takes place in the interior part of the Egg Carrier. It is a dark and cold base with many hallways and storage rooms guarded by Egg Troops. There is also an armory and a battle arena. Egg Troops will try to attack the player as common enemies in the level.
