Rescue Of The CrewEdit
- Main article: Seascape - Crew Rescue
The World Navy were testing gyropedoes in the Atlantic Ocean near the drilling rig, when one of the gyropedoes (fired from the atom sub W.N.S. Reaper) ignites a gas field beneath the sea bed. The gas eventually breaks through, shooting columns of flames above sea level and high into the air. Feeling themselves in danger, Hooper and O'Shea go down in a diving bell to check the damage, after one of the drilling rig's legs is fractured. A further explosion causes the rig to slip further and the diving bell crashes to the sea bed. They are rescued by Gordon in Thunderbird 4 and just manage to get clear as the rig explodes in flames.
