Story Notes:

I've been threatening people with this one for months, and here it is - my Battle of the Planets AU / Thunderbirds TV-verse crossover. My hope is that it will be readable by people from both fandoms who know very little about the other one - otherwise I think I have a target audience of three. You know who you are :) If I've failed, put in too little (or too much) background information, do please let me know.

This is set in what I've seen called a "fusion" universe: where both canons are considered to belong in the same universe. They're surprisingly close here - my Battle AU has Earth considerably less technologically advanced in terms of spaceflight than Battle canon does, and it's not so very far from the Thunderbirds universe. Of course, in Thunderbirds we're not at war with Spectra - then again, much of the action in Battle takes place on other planets. I'm postulating that International Rescue stay out of the war situations, and concentrate their efforts on the sort of civilian rescues which governments worrying about the war maybe don't have so much time for.

Set shortly after the episode in which the Phoenix is completely destroyed. Thunderbirds-wise, it's some time after the episode where the Fireflash crashes in the sea.

And this is the point where I give a huge thank you to Mapu from the Tracy Island Writers Forum, for help and advice on all things diving-related. If I've still managed to mess it up, that is of course my own fault :)
