A whole month with nothing going on seems a little impractical between holidays and birthdays and things. That doesn't mean a few slow weeks wouldn't bore the inhabitants of Tracy Island. A group activity like a murder mystery or somethings could be fun to explore.

Well, January would be nearly a month seeing as both New Year's and Jeff's birthday come at the very beginning. The problem I could see would be the weather - it can get nasty and would more than likely spawn a rescue.

Still, it would be an interesting idea

I threw this out during a brainstorming session once but I'll post it here - A Tracy Island Mini-Olympics. Could have both serious and fun events. I remember some idea for events already being mentioned but I don't remember them

I've been thinking about interesting confrontations?

Suppose agents of the World Government spoke to Scott and Elise at Mobile Control during a rescue? Sparks could fly if tempers get heated!

How about IR meeting the Hood on a rescue and everyone confronts him together? He could get arrested and sent to jail, but of course with his hypnosis techniques, he'll soon be out again. Could be interesting!

Suppose Tom is trying to interview IR during a rescue and he picks on Dom, not knowing he's his brother? Thought-provoking!

Good question, Scuppy. We never addressed that. I suppose Jeff was so concerned about Dianne and the future of IR and its personnel, it slipped his mind. But you never know; something might just remind him, and he'll have to address it. Who knows? Maybe Jeff'll have Elise take over Mobile Control for a few rescues, and make Scott subordinate to her.

I'm worried about the fact that on a couple of occasions some of the members got drunk. Suppose they said some things while they were drunk that constituted a security hazard?

Just what is the nature of the Hood's anti-aircraft thing? What can it do?

This is actually a suggestion from Susan, but I thought I'd put it up here. The year we're working with is 2068, and in 2069 would be the 100th anniversary of the first moon landing and moon walk. Wouldn't it be cool if the WSA asked Jeff to participate in the commemoration by going back to the moon, seeing as he was the first to return there in the 21st century? And perhaps John as well; the first father/son team to walk on the moon.

At the rate we're going, it'll take a long while real time to get there, but still, it's a fascinating idea!

I mentioned this in the brainstorming session, but it should go here, too:

In view of what happened to the IR medical team during the tornado rescue in Kansas, it might be a good idea to have another one in the next few months. It would make for good writing, such as Dianne, Dominic and Nikki mentally preparing for the rescue, Jeff's feelings about sending them out there so soon after what happened (even six months later is a short time), and the others remembering what happened in Kansas.

What would they do differently? What items might they take that they didn't have before? How would the others feel? Would they try to stay close to the medical team, just in case?

What if the team got a case of food poisoning? Suppose the MRE's somehow got contaminated and the crew (at least some of them anyway) got sick. It could happen during an extra long rescue and/or start getting sick on the way home. Might be intersting to see how they and the press handle IR not being totally up to par.

Also, it could lead in to Jenny's arrival, making Grandma realize she just can't do everything. Perhaps she was preparing the MRE's and got distracted by something, leaving it for a while, then coming back to finish the job.

My question about the MREs would be, would grandma actually be making them? I always envisioned them as those packaged meals you reconstitute when you go travelling, so they won't go off. I would think that Jeff would order them in from a manufacturer rather than anything else. But I guess that's something we need to decide.

I was rereading some of chapter 7 (as I've been copying it over to the Yuku site) and saw that John made a comment about "landing off-planet". At the time, I thought of the moon, but according to "Thunderbirds Are GO!", mankind has made it to Mars, and so has IR, however briefly. Now, the Mysterons are supposedly from Mars - though we haven't used any Captain Scarlet canon at all, and don't plan to.

Leaving out the Mysterons, what do you think about humankind having established an outpost on Mars? Might open up some interesting plot bunnies.

And more from Liz at the MSN Site:

Along the lines of the previous post here, I'd like to add something more.

Since this RP takes place more than sixty years from now, a lot will have changed. Most of us, myself included, seem to be writing as if things are happening in this time period, and having our characters using procedures and going to places (with a few exceptions) that exist today

Here's where we can use our imaginations. What sorts of medicines might be found in the next sixty years? What new types of vehicles would be available to the general public? Has solar energy or wind energy become more widespread? What types of transport for land and sea, as well as air, might be around? Has the way people entertain themselves outside of their homes changed? And so forth, and so on.

I'm not saying we can't use currently existing things. We have, and in well done storylines. But we can go a little farther, I believe.

mentioned this in the January brainstorming session, but I think it should be here. It can be a storyline for any of the characters on Tracy Island, and I feel it's worth exploring.

We all know that the rescues have a strong element of risk to them, but what if the risk meant someone loses something? I'm not talking about a piece of equipment or part of their clothing. I'm talking about part of the person.

Say someone goes blind or deaf. Perhaps it's temporary, maybe not. Is the technology or medical treatment advanced enough in 2068 to correct it? And what would it be?

Or someone could lose a body part: an arm, a leg, an eye, a hand or a foot, for instance. What would the replacement be, if there was one? By that time, would the replacement - assuming it exists - be good enough to let the character continue working for IR? And what would that character's traumatic experience be like, both during the event that caused it, and afterwards?

This could make for one heck of a storyline. But not one to be written just for the angst factor, please.

I have a vision of Drew sending the family a scrapbook of all the press coverage during Dianne's hospital stay. Including a section of all the Tabloid coverage. The entire team could crack up over some of the stories.Especially if some of them came close.

"IR Dr still in hospital!!" "Secret conditon: Coma!!" "IR Dr.is Love child of IR leader!" "CIA tries to infiltrate IR!""Nurse: IR Agent made a pass at me while hospitalized!" (Drew would really hate that one.) "Exclusive Pictures of IR room!" "IR bribes hospital to keep quiet!"
And some of the aftermath. When the Beatles stayed at a hotel in Seattle, someone took up the carpet afterwards and sold pieces of it as souvenirs. What if someone tried to sell one of the blankets from Dom's room?

What if we did one month where nothing was happening? There were no rescues, no reason for a party, training was getting monotonous, and everyone was getting bored. What would they do?

What about a live action murder mystery? No one (except for two or three people, who make up the clues) would know who the victim is, or whodunit. Each day, they'd get a new clue in their email.

Or a treasure hunt. Everyone would get a riddle clue in their email one day. They'd have to figure out the riddle, which would send them to a certain location on the island. There they'd find the next clue, sending them to the next location, and so on.

The prize for solving the murder, or the treasure, could be some time off to go home, or go on a vacation and play tourist.

Here's an idea I've just been hashing over with Dianne:

What if the Hightowers decide that, since none of their other tries worked, they should have one of their minions answer an ad for employment at Tracy Industries? And the ad they had him/her answer was really one for IR.

A lot of plotting would need to be done in order to prevent that person from learning the truth. It would probably entail help from Penny and Lena, among others.

If anyone has suggestions, or would like to help develop this plot - assuming you would like to see it played out - let us know.

Instead of a BBwBBB, how about a "shipwrecked" or malfunctioning boat with a perfectly normal couple aboard... perfectly normal couple of reporters, that is! How would the Tracys deal with a damaged/off-course boat... beyond Operation: Cover Up, that is?

With Thunderbirds being set in the future did any of you ever consider exploring doing something involving an underwater colony or something. Could be fun to explore and give you all something to create. Who would have developed the technology to do so? What would life be like under the sea - would it be a non-see through structure with peep holes to the ocean or a bubble type dome enclosing them? Imagine walking to the store and seeing a shark floating overhead Shocked

just thought I'd throw that out there.

Great idea, and one we've batted around a couple of times. We may have to just jump in and do it! Welcome and thanks for the great suggestions.

Thanks for the welcome.

To add to that suggestion, you could obviously introduce a underwater colony through a rescue. Or another option would be to just introduce it through a plot line. Maybe the first 'underwater colony' is just started or about to start and some type of technology from Tracy Industries is part of it? Or maybe something of Brains, that isn't necessarily connected with Tracy Industries(don't know if you have Brains as being connected to Tracy Industries in your role play or not)? I've seen articles about experimental undersea habitats but this could be the first 'full community one'. Just thought I'd through that out there in case you guys do decide to pursue the topic.
