This is a list of all Brains' appearances and missions.

Trapped In The SkyEdit

Jeff congratulates Brains on inventing International Rescue's craft, and tells him, "your phenomenal mind has made this all possible, now you're going to see it in operation".

Pit Of PerilEdit

Brains flies out to the danger zone in Thunderbird 2 along with Virgil. On Arrival he views the footage of the remote camera on a screen in the laboratory and he realizes that it's an open-cast mine which had been used as a military equipment dump after the Second World War.

He shows Scott and Virgil a plan he has drawn, which involves Virgil being lowered into the pit to lay explosive charges. This will remove the walls of the pit, so that Sidewinder can be dragged out of the open cast mine by Recovery Vehicles.

Sun ProbeEdit

Thunderbird 3, with Alan, Scott and Tin-Tin on board, is launched into space in a attempt to reach the Sun Probe. Alan's first attempt to reach the probe with the safety beam fails and he and Scott realize that Thunderbird 3 must go much closer to the sun than originally planned. This beam succeeds in activating the Probe's retros and enables it to move away from the Sun, but Thunderbird 3's retros now fail. Brains realizes that he can jam Thunderbird 3's safety beam signal with the mobile Transmitter Truck, but this requires a complex calculation by the prototype robot Braman.

Operation Crash DiveEdit

Brains accompanies Virgil and Gordon on board Thunderbird 2, in the hunt for Fireflash 4, after consulting his charts he realized that the plane must be on the seabed. Gordon quickly finds the plane and Brains instructs him to cut off the airliners engines, this will allow the plane to float to the surface so that crew can be rescued.

Move And You're DeadEdit

Brains is taken to the San Miguel Bridge, on board Thunderbird 2. On the way there he works out the best way to rescue Alan and Grandma, who are trapped high on the girders of the recently-completed bridge. Brains controls the Neutralizer Tractor so that Virgil can make the rescue using the Jet-Air Transporter.

Brink Of DisasterEdit

Brains is seen showing Jeff and Scott a design of a new aircraft.

A Trip on A MonotrainEdit

Jeff is accompanied by two of his associates Brains and Tin-Tin on the automatic monotrain that Grafton tries to assure them that there is no danger on, even showing the main automatic control unit, but Jeff and the others aren't convinced, rightly thinking that he cares more about making money than people's lives. Later a thunderstorm strikes down one of the safety helijets that was observing the monotrain and the impact of the fallen jet destroys most of the bridge and cuts off the automatic signals causing the monotrain to go out of control. Grafton panics and can think of no way to prevent this disaster. Jeff calls International Rescue and Brains, after several attempts manages to slow the monotrain down.

Terror In New York CityEdit

When Thunderbird 2 crash lands back on Tracy Island, Brains sets about rebuilding it.

The Plan To Rescue Ned CookEdit

When the Empire State Building comes crashing down, both Ned Cook and his cameraman, Joe, they fall into a deep cavern. The men are trapped with water seeping into their hollow from an uncharted underground river.

This is clearly a job for Thunderbird 4, which could navigate up the river from its outlet in the bay, but first Brains has to find the way into the river, and plan the operation.

Day Of DisasterEdit

Brains is visiting Lady Penelope in England and both witness the disaster at Allington Suspension Bridge taking place on television. They set off for the bridge to help in the rescue of the men trapped on the riverbed.

Danger At Ocean DeepEdit

All radio transmissions are blacked out, leaving International Rescue blind and deaf. Alan takes Brains in Thunderbird 3 to join John on Thunderbird 5 to find the fault.

Back on Tracy Island, Brains traces the cause of the interference, the reaction between high-density fuel Liquid Alsterene and low-density OD-60 in close proximity. When these two chemicals are brought even closer together, an almighty explosion is the result.

Attack Of The Alligators!Edit

International Rescue receives a distress call from the Ambro River, were people are trapped in side a Lonely River House. Brains checks the map to find location of the house, and tells Jeff that "he really don't have enough to go on as yet, but it sounds like the Alligators are some kind of freak mutation"
