Season 2 Episode 9 – “Impact”

John and Ridley O’Bannon have a game of Zero-G squash in space. When they finish they receive some distressing news. Langstrom Fischler is attempting to redirect a comet and harvest it for water and material resources.

Sure enough, his plan goes wrong and International Rescue launch to save him. Virgil and Alan fly to the comet in Thunderbird 3 where Virgil takes a digging pod to destroy the comet.

Meanwhile, John helps Ridley aboard the Global One base, and Kayo infiltrates Fischler industries to disconnect his control. In the end they redirect the comet, and it harmlessly burns up in the atmosphere.
