2086 AD: Although the 21st century is the space age, mankind is ever expanding the frontiers of technical superiority into unknown and uncharted areas. Each such quest promises marvelous discoveries, but also brings potential danger. In direct response to such dangers birthed from advanced technology, the Thunderbird rescue squad stands ready to mobilize in response to any distress calls arriving at any time from any disaster scene on or off Earth. Five of the squad's finest cadets - Dylan Beyda, Kallen James, Jesse Rigel, Jonathan Jordan Jr and Grant Hanson - undergo exciting adventures as they brave impossible and incredible dangers to rescue lives.

Did You Know?
Some of the Thunderbird mech pay tribute to the original Thunderbirds
- Thunderbird 2 (TB-2) is a cargo hauler, identical to the original TB-2 but coloured blue instead of green and storing its vehicles inside its cargo bay rather than in hangar pods
- Thunderbird 4 is a yellow submarine like the original TB-4, but larger in scale
- Thunderbirds 5 and 15 are based on the Mole, the pod vehicle seen in the original series
- and Thunderbird 6, like the original TB-5, is a massive space station.
