Megadroid presents the Control Zone, introducing this issue's strips and features before looking forward to Christmas. An early present is that Sega have presented STC with a prize related to merchandise. The winner of a 32X competition from Issue 58 is announced, with the character displayed correctly identified as Mighty the Armadillo. FIFA Soccer 95 moves to the top of the Mega Drive chart in the Sega Charts, whilst its Mega-CD counterpart remains top. Asterix & The Secret Mission is the new Master system leader and Strider 2 hasn't moved from the Game Gear throne.

This issue's Graphic Zone is themed "Greasers", with several STC characters pictured riding motorcycles (or even being one). Artistic Boomers won a pack of Crayola Overwriters. Part 2 of a Road Rash 3 special is presented by David Gibbon in the Q Zone, giving help when choosing bikes, weapons and upgrades.

Megadroid mans Speedlines, answering letters from a young African Boomer, an idea for a new fighting game and an artistic reader created models from eggshells and pipe cleaners. All pictures and letters in Speedlines won a Highgrove Sonic Stationary set.
