  • Several members of the International Rescue crew attend the maiden flight of Brains' revolutionary craft Skyship One, unaware that they are being lured into a deadly trap.

  • The International Rescue team is faced with one of its toughest challenges yet, as the revolutionary lighter-than-air craft Skyship One is hijacked while on it's maiden voyage around the world. Against backdrops including the Statue of Liberty and the Sphinx, Lady Penelope, Parker, Alan and Tin-Tin fight the hijackers from on-board, while the rest of the team tries to stop the airship crashing into a missile silo. —Fridolin Hobbes <[email protected]>

  • It's the early twenty-first century. The work of International Rescue is highly secretive. Most of its work is based on Tracy Island in the Pacific. The Thunderbirds carry out most of the work led by ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy and his five sons - Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon and John - who fly Thunderbirds 1 through 5, aircraft each designed to carry out a different specialized function. The aircraft designer is code named Brains. Their one team member not based on the island is British Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, who does most of her work in the mobile center coined Fab1, operated by her manservant, Parker. Brains, under the pseudonym Mister X, has just designed a new pleasure aircraft called Skyship One for New World Aircraft Corporation's holidaying division. Lady Penelope - with Parker and Fab1 by her side - and Alan have been invited to go on its maiden voyage, although Tin-Tin, the daughter of one of the Tracy's domestics and Alan's love interest, sneaks along as well. What they are unaware of is that Skyship One's crew members are not who they seem and plan to use Lady Penelope to ruin the Thunderbirds. Meanwhile, Jeff believes they require a Thunderbird 6, although he provides no specifications to Brains. A usually complacent Brains is uncharacteristically rattled when design after design is rejected. —Huggo

Scene #1

  • Gordon Tracy
    I thought it would be a good idea, in this day and age of speed and... thing like that, to build an... airship.
  • James Glenn
    An airship? An *airship*?

Scene #2

  • Jeff Tracy
    Now, let's have a rundown on the International Rescue craft. So far, there are five. Thunderbird 1: sleek, first and fast. Thunderbird 2: giant transporter. Carries all the rescue gear to the danger zone. Thunderbird 3: designed for space rescue. Thunderbird 4: capable of withstanding the pressure of the depths. Thunderbird 5: space monitor. Capable of receiving or intercepting distress calls from any part of the world. And I'm telling you, Brains, in no uncertain terms, that we now need a Thunderbird 6.
  • Gordon Tracy
    Sure, Mr Tracy, but can you give me some sort of a steer? I like to work to a specification.
  • Jeff Tracy
    Specification? You didn't need to work to a specification when you designed that airship for the New World Aircraft Corporation.
  • Gordon Tracy
    That's right. I didn't. And what happened? They laughed.
  • Jeff Tracy
    Yeah, that's right. They laughed... and then they built it.

Scene #3

  • John Tracy
    A beautiful island in the Pacific, secret base of International Rescue, so far undetected. Outwardly, the luxury home of millionaire ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy.
