Thunderbirds Are Go Cast

Lady Penelope and Parker attend the opening of the Grand Space Hotel, constructed in orbit around the Earth in just one week by Brains’ new nano-technology. But as Penelope meets the assembled reporters, part of the stations’ hull ruptures, venting a jet of air that sends the hotel out of control, on a collision course with the planet below. Knowing that the crash will be catastrophic, International Rescue immediately mobilise: Virgil leaves in Thunderbird 2 to collect Gordon from a deep sea mission, Scott and Alan prepare for launch in Thunderbird 3, while Brains works with Grandma on the cause of the disaster. When Brains suspects sabotage, covert ops specialist Kayo joins Scott and Alan, and together they blast off into space. Alan uses Thunderbird 3’s grapple arms to regain control of the station, but as soon as orbit has been re-established another hull breach rocks the hotel, and all but one of the hotel’s escape pods launch by themselves. Brains suspects that the saboteur is still on board, so Kayo goes inside to locate the perpetrator; meanwhile, Alan uses Thunderbird 3 to ferry the hotel staff and guests down to the safety of Thunderbird 2’s cargo hold. With evacuation complete, only Kayo remains inside the hotel as it plummets towards Central Florida; she has now found the saboteur: her uncle, the Hood…
