Thunderbirds Are Go! is a remake of the hit 1960's television show. In the 21st century, Jeff Tracy, a former astronaut, amasses a colossal fortune and decides that he must use it to benefit others. His answer to this desire is to create International Rescue, a unique private emergency response service equipped with customized designed vehicles and equipment that enable the organization to react to any crisis whether it be in sea, air, land, or space. Jeff's five sons volunteer to operate as the pilots and field agents, as well "Brain" who acts as the teams engineer. In addition, Jeff's friend, Kyrano and his daughter Tanusha aka Kayo (based on the original series Tin-Tin character) agree to be the support staff. In addition to the field team, IR also maintains an intelligence network with Lady Penelope and her ex-con chauffeur, Parker as the chief agents in this arm. The series depicts this team as they answer various calls for help around and beyond the world while they prevent enemies like the Hood from learning and exploiting their secrets.
A powerful seaquake turns a busy day for International Rescue into a perilous one. Lady Penelope helps Thunderbirds find who put seismic destabilisers on the sea bed.
As the team continue their quest to save the researched, Lady Penelope is on the trail of their adversary.
Alan is on space junk duty, when one of the pieces of debris turns out to be a heat-seeking SAT-MINE that activates and locks onto TB3's heat signature. Back on Earth, Lady Penelope and Parker implement a plan to sneak into a top-secret storage facility.
Thunderbird 5 picks up an unusual radiation spike from a remote corner of Africa, and Scott rushes in with Thunderbird 1 to check it out. Using special equipment, Scott enters the mine and discovers the source to be a leak of unstable uranium. Moments later he is attacked by a mysterious woman who claims that the mine belongs to her family. During their confrontation, the mine begins to crumble - and Scott and she must find a way out.
Kayo is riding aboard Fireflash, a supersonic airliner invented by Brains, but she is unaware that its controls have been tampered with. International Rescue notices the plane has vanished from their monitors and attempt to locate it. Kayo realises that the plane is flying in the wrong direction, and manages to avoid a powerful gas attack that has knocked out both passengers and crew.
An anti-technology group calling themselves The Luddites power up an electromagnetic pulse device underneath London, crippling everything that uses electricity. The result is a near catastrophe as the entire city shuts down. Virgil and Grandma Tracy must find and disable the device - with the help of Lady Penelope and Parker.
A strange malfunction occurs on a high-speed train in Japan, leaving it out of control and unable to stop. Brains comes up with a plan to fix the problem before a disastrous crash occurs - the only problem is that he will have to board the speeding engine himself to pull it off. Scott manages to get the genius on board, where they find the problem is more complicated than they thought.
A series of cascading equipment failures leads John to realise that rogue A.I. has gained control of Thunderbird 5. The programme is sending false monitor images to Tracy Island to deceive the other brothers. John finally gets through to Lady Penelope and informs her of the situation. Once the other brothers figure out what is going on, Alan is despatched in Thunderbird 3 to rescue John.
A malfunction at a mining operation sends an asteroid careening towards the sun, endangering crewman Ned Tedford. Alan and Kayo deploy Thunderbird 3 for the rescue mission, but a rogue solar flare knocks out their sensors. They land near the mine, and must find a way to alter the asteroid's trajectory so that it slingshots around the sun instead of crashing into it.
Lady Penelope, Parker and Gordon visit the Amazon desert, where an archaeologist shows them round an ancient temple. When they all become trapped inside, the academic refuses to let them call for help, fearing for his reputation - so the trio of heroes must put their wits to the task of finding an escape route.
International Rescue scrambles all the flight-capable Thunderbirds to rescue the crew of CIR.R.U.S, a high-atmosphere weather station, now in danger due to the arrival of a fierce storm. TB1, TB2 and TB3 are quickly crippled by the conditions, and the only hope of salvaging the mission lies with TB5 - and John's ability to mount his most daring rescue ever
A heavy metal extraction platform carrying toxic waste at the bottom of the ocean is in trouble. Gordon rushes in with Thunderbird 4 when a fire on board the rolling factory damages its steering capabilities. With the help of Lady Penelope and Parker on the surface, Gordon must rescue platform operator Ned Tedford and prevent the rig from spilling its waste.
Brains and Alan are on a visit to the Supreme Hadron Collider when a satellite begins to fall straight towards them. They are rescued in the nick of time by the arrival of Virgil in Thunderbird 2. Examining the evidence, the team decide that the malfunction was caused by a gravity well instigated by the collider itself. Things get even stickier when a commercial jet is caught in the pull of the gravity well and is in imminent danger of crashing. Can International Rescue shut down the collider in time to save the plane and its passengers?
Brains has invented a self-constructing luxury hotel which orbits around Earth. Unfortunately for its guests, the luxurious hotel in space begins to malfunction and the International Rescue team have to step in to avert a major disaster.
Scott and Alan travel to the far side of the moon to rescue their father's best friend from a meteor shower.
Virgil and Brains attempts to rescue a mining crew trapped inside a glacier, but the scientist in charge of the project refuses to leave.
International Rescue are dispatched to save one of their own when the Hood traps Lady Penelope and Parker inside an underwater hyper-train loop during a high-stakes robbery.
High in the Arctic, a machine designed to harness the energy of the aurora borealis has gone haywire. If not repaired, it could permanently disrupt the magnetic field protecting the Earth. Scott and Virgil answer the call, despite Virgil's insistence that they both need a break. Complicating matters is the fact that an atmospheric approach will be impossible, which forces Scott and Virgil to configure SKI PODS to get there in time. Scott admits the burden he feels as leader but the crisis is averted with Max's help.
A seismologist and his son alert the authorities to the presence of a rogue wildcat mining operation, only for the machinery to trigger an earthquake that swallows the equipment - along with the father and son. Gordon must attempt a daring underground rescue of the boy and his injured father, while Virgil has to find a way to shut down the out-of-control rig.
A scientist accidentally locks herself inside a vault which is being used to store unstable matter. There is only one person who has successfully broken into a vault like this - Parker. Colonel Casey of the GDF recruits Parker for the job but the safe cracker ends up locking himself and Lady Penelope inside. Virgil and Scott take the vault to an isolated area on Thunderbird 2. Now Parker and Penelope must try and free themselves before the anti-matter explodes.
It is 2060 and once again Halley's Comet is passing close to Earth. A businessman and his personal assistant decide to mark Halley's comet's latest orbit past Earth by flying their exclusive flying yacht beyond the atmosphere to chase it. Moments later, the pair send out a distress call as they find themselves trapped in the comet's tail, prompting Alan and Scott to take Thunderbird 3 out to tow the thrill-seekers to safety.
Parker gives Alan driving lessons at the Creighton-‐Ward estate in FAB0 while Lady Penelope has tea with her great aunt Sylvia. Progress is slow until a pair of bumbling intruders attempt to kidnap the ladies. FAB1 is the only vehicle that can reach them in time. Parker is injured and cannot drive so Alan has to conquer his fear and rescue them.
During a joint operation between International Rescue and the Global Defence Force, a series of mishaps nearly ends in disaster. In the wake of the botched mission, Colonel Martin Janus takes over the GDF, imposing a strict set of restrictions on International Rescue. As Lady Penelope and Parker attempt to reason with the colonel, they begin to realise that he is not quite what he seems - then it becomes apparent that he really is an imposter working for the Hood.
In the Arizona desert there is a facility known as CATCH, from where all air traffic in North America is controlled. Scott and Virgil handle a rescue mission involving a mid-air plane collision while Kayo infiltrates the bunker with the help of Thunderbird Shadow. Then Kayo realises that this is all part of a much bigger plan by the Hood.
An undercover operation involving Lady Penelope and a Parker to recover a stolen Repulser Magnetic Array for the Global Defence Force gets blown prematurely. Parker is taken prisoner by Banino using the power of the Repulser and he takes a stolen GDF flyer with Kayo, who was secretly acting as back-up, in pursuit in Thunderbird Shadow. The flyer crash lands on a factory roof and International Rescue intervene with Scott in Thunderbird 1 rescuing one of the factory workers and Lady Penelope saving Parker. Kayo confronts Banino to find he knows her secret; she lets him escape knowing she will have to reveal the truth of her past.
A number of carefully staged disasters require the full attention of everyone at International Rescue. Kayo discovers that the Hood is behind these acts of terrorism and has actually infiltrated Tracy Island. To make matters worse, the Hood has rigged up explosive devices to bring down the Thunderbird craft - and now he reveals his shocking secret to the Tracy brothers.
