One day, Fred is to have his engine checked, so after Pete untied the ropes, they went to Spike the Echidna's workshop to have Fred's engine checked. When they arrived, Spiked checked Fred's engine over. Fred just watched Spike using all his tools to mend his engine. After a while, Spike said Fred's engine was fine. After Fred started it up, he didn't go forwards, he went backwards. Fred couldn't stop. He was just about to crash into a big ship when his captain woke him up.
