    • Lindsay: We're rich, Wilson. The richest men alive! Wilson: Yeah. Yeah. We could buy the world. Say, we've forgotten something. We're trapped in here. We couldn't open that entrance door. Lindsay: We can't be. We're too rich to be trapped.

    Notes (4)

    • This episode is also known as "The Uninvited: Alien Attack."

    • Although credited on the end titles, Sylvia Anderson does not take part in this episode.

    • Lady Penelope, Parker and Kyrano don't appear in this episode.

    • Originally scripted as a 25-minute episode, some of the elements used to bring it up to 50 minutes included Thunderbird 1 being shot down in the Sahara desert. This was the first 50-minute episode to be recorded.

    Trivia (9)

    • This marks the first use of International Rescue's personal defense weapon.

    • Tin-Tin can be seen smoking for the first and only time in the series

    • When Scott asks Wilson and Lindsey to radio International Rescue to inform them that he is ok, he mentions that any radio frequency will do for the call. This is the first mention of Thunderbird 5's ability to pick up radio calls on any frequency.

    • The long shots of Scott hanging out of the window/hatch of Thunderbird 1 as Wilson and Lindsey find him, shows white lettering around the window (presumably "TB1") but the close ups show no white around the window at all.

    • As Thunderbird 1 crashes in the desert, Scott is thrown forwards and bangs his chin on TB1's flight controls. However he would later be shown with his forehead on the controls.
