While Scott, Virgil and Alan are fighting a fire in an English mine, Chip stows away in Thunderbird 2's Pod. When they arrive back on Tracy Island the intruder alert goes off and Jeff Tracy finds himself with a security hazard on his hands.
Safely Tucked up in BedEdit
Mr. Morrison puts his son to bed and tells him to settle down for the night. Chip is so excited about the rescue he looks out the window and can see Thunderbird 2 close by his house. After his dad sets off to help with the fire, Chip sneaks aboard the craft.
Saboteur on BoardEdit
The intruder alarm signals that there is a saboteur on-board Thunderbird 2, so Jeff, Scott and Gordon stand-by armed with hand guns while Virgil releases the pod. Over the tan Jeff warns the saboteur to come out or he will blast him out. To their surprise the young Chip sticks his head around the corner of the pod entrance and pleads with them not to shoot!
Thunderbird 1 is More ImportantEdit
Chip tells Virgil he wants to fly Thunderbird 1 as it's faster, and more important, than the other Thunderbirds. Virgil explains how the craft was instrumental in the rescue of Eddie Houseman in End Of The Road, trapped in his explosives truck and balanced precariously on a mountain ledge. Alan appears in the hangar and takes over looking after Chip.
Not so InvolvedEdit
It's Alan's turn to look after Chip and he tells him all about the Sun Probe rescue, after Chip thinks Thunderbird 3 is not needed much on rescue missions.
Gosh, Thunderbird 1!Edit
Scott also hides nothing from young Chip and brags about the time he helped with the rescue of the passengers aboard the stricken Fireflash aircraft.
That Can't Happen Very OftenEdit
Finally, Chip gets to see Thunderbird 4, and thinks it to is not used much. Gordon, keen to impress the boy, tells him all about the rescue at the Allington Suspension Bridge, when he rescued the crew of the Martian Space Probe rocket, from the bottom of the river.
Jeff's Gonna go BerserkEdit
Jeff takes the boy into the lounge and shows him were he controls the rescues from, to the astonishment of the rest of the family.
Any Bright Ideas?Edit
Jeff tells the boys that they have to get the boy back to his home, and they need to prevent a security leak. As Chip stowed away in England, and its almost directly the other side of the world from the base, instead of Chip being asleep at his home, he's been awake, and very much awake at the base.
Because, when it's night in England, it's day time on Tracy Island, they put Chip to bed, and he sleeps like a log. His bed is then transferred to Thunderbird 2, and at top speed, they get him back to his home before dawn breaks. The boy wakes up in the morning and thinks that the whole thing has been just a dream.
- By some strange coincidence, Chip is wearing a housecoat and pyjamas that are identical to the ones Brains had on in Atlantic Inferno, and the blanket used in Thunderbird 2 is exactly the same colour and design as in Chip's bedroom.
- The puppet used to play Chip previously appeared as Bob Williams in Cry Wolf. It also puts in a cameo in Danger At Ocean Deep and The Duchess Assignment.
- The toy airplane Chip has in his room also appeared at London Airport in The Duchess Assignment. The model is a modified version of the Arrowhead Jet seen previously in the "Stingray" episode Rescue from the Skies.
