Thunderbirds Are Go Logo 'Long Haul'

Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

Aboard Space Hub 1 in lunar orbit, Traffic Controller Conrad helps a transport ship with failing engines to dock safely. But a cruiser gets in the way, and as it veers off it crashes into the station and damages the power core, sending it into meltdown. Monitoring the situation, John sends Alan in Thunderbird 3 to help. Conrad evacuates the Hub staff from the station, but before he can leave the control tower buckles, trapping him in an escape shaft buried under rubble. Alan arrives at Space Hub 1, but the heat from the damaged power core prevents him from entering; using the escape chute from Thunderbird 3, Alan pumps air to Conrad, then keeps him talking while Brains works on a way to stabilise the station. Tracy Island uses the same coolant unit as Space Hub 1, but the only craft capable of transporting Brains’ back-up unit is Thunderbird 2 - which is not a spaceship. So International Rescues resident genius comes up with a daring plan: by adding his experimental engine modification to Thunderbird 2, he can send it into space!
