M.A.S.K. has its headquarters at a gas station in Boulder Hill. Boulder Hill Gas works as a functional gas station, complete with gas pumps and a repair garage. Buddie "Clutch" Hawks, M.A.S.K. agent in charge of upkeep on the fleet of transforming vehicles, also maintains the gas station's cover as a working facility. If under attack, the gas station has offensive and defensive transformation abilities, including freeze cannons and armor plating.

Inside, M.A.S.K.'s headquarters is far from ordinary; M.A.S.K.'s vehicles are stored inside, as well as theenergizing device that powers the team's masks. Matt Trakker has a subterranean transportation system that shuttles him between his mansion and M.A.S.K. headquarters. All this is supplemented by an incredibly powerful computer.

The MASK energy room is one of the central elements of the first MASK episodes.

Hidden deep in Boulder Hill, the energy room consists of two parts. The room where the M.A.S.K. agents come together to discuss the mission, and the actual energy room, also called the mask room.

The table and chairs in the energy room are on a huge platform, which rises up following the meeting.

Once the platform has moved up, it reaches the mask room where the masks will be charged for the mission.

The masks are moved out of the ceiling with the energizing device. The energizing device can hold a maximum of 8 masks.

After the energizing device was mopved out of the ceiling, the arms fold out and an energy beam flows through them, into the masks. With this, the masks are then charged for the mission, and can be used.

In the course of the episodes, the energy room always looks different. He has several designs.

The garage in Boulder Hill houses the MASK vehicles.

To the mission upcoming in the episode, always just the right vehicles in the garage are ready. How this happens, is not to be seen.

The garage for the MASK vehicles is well disguised, as a workshop.

In order to be able to drive the vehicles from out of the garage, the lifting platform is turned 180°, that a flat floor is created, and the back wall of the workshop goes down.

This opens the way for the use of the vehicles for the mission.

The M.A.S.K. Computer is housed at both Matt Trakker's mansion and at Boulder Hill. Trakker often uses voice commands to ask the computer to analyse objects and photographs and has programmed the computer to select the most suitable M.A.S.K. agents for each mission.

Occasionally, Trakker uses a portable version housed in a suitcase that has the same capabilities.

The computer is also connected to all MASK vehicles. So Matt uses it regularly in Thunderhawk to let the computer choose the best agents for the mission.

Every MASK agent had it, every fan wanted it, the iconic MASK watch.

With the watch, today we would say smartwatch, the agents were informed that they were selected by the M.A.S.K. computer for a mission.

A flashing mask, similar to Matt's Ultra Flash mask, appeared in the watch's display, signaling to the agents that they were needed.

These left thereupon everything and drop, and hurried to the mission.

The watch was silver / red with a metal bracelet.

V.E.N.O.M. Technologies:

Written by: David Goellnitz

Both sides would employ holograms at various points (notably Brad's MASK), with illusions being used to a tactical advantage.

In the episode Assault on Liberty, VENOM stole the Statue of Liberty, hiding it in an old abandoned tunnel below Liberty Island.

In order to throw MASK off the trail, VENOM broadcast a signal from the state of Iowa, showing the Statue of Liberty in a corn field.

The TV station broadcasting this believed it was genuine.

MASK soon traveled to Iowa and as remarkable as it seemed the Statue appeared to be standing in a corn field in Iowa.

Even in person, this illusion fooled the MASK Team. The illusion was furthered by a VENOM attack with Jackhammer and Pirhana ambushing our heroes.

After fighting off VENOM, MASK approached the Statue. However, a sharp eyed Bruce noticed something seemed off.

He noticed the projector hidden inside a scarecrow. He warned the other Agents that something seemed fishy. Matt scanned the Statue and realized that the Statue wasn't there. But a bomb was there.

Dagger sprung the trap and set off the bomb. Luckily Gloria used her Aura MASK to protect her and her fellow Agents from the explosion.

The scarecrow with the projector was not so lucky. The scarecrow was knocked over by the blast, with projector exposed.

Bruce and the others examined the projector. They realized VENOM had used it to trick them into coming out to Iowa and away from where the Statue was.

The projector appeared to be fairly effective at it's task of generating the hologram of the Statue of Liberty. It was able to fool MASK and make a genuine looking TV broadcast.

The scarecrow appeared to be a normal scarecrow. This particular projector was not seen again.

No toy of the scarecrow or projector were ever produced.

Facts worth knowing about Assault On Liberty

Particularly in this episode*:

Gloria Baker is Gator's co-driver during this mission.
•Both Jackhammer and Switchblade are destroyed during the final battle.
Vanessa Warfield is present at the World Trade Center with Miles Mayhem and escapes off screen. It is unknown if she used Mantak or other means.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•During the battle in the corn field, Rhino's front window is damaged in three places by Piranha's lasers. But after the battle, when Duane Kennedy contacts Matt, Rhino can be seen in the background with the window intact, and it remain so for the rest of the story.
•When Buddy says "We were this close to being popcorn" in the field of Iowa, he speaks with Dusty's voice.
Mayhem says "I thought you took care of them" to Vanessa, but it was Rax and Dagger who detonated the bomb in Iowa to get rid of the M.A.S.K. agents.  

Other publications from Assault On Liberty:

•In Germany, a tape of the episode was released. It was episode 14 of the series. The cover shows the Statue of Liberty, but with SKYBOLT of the Splitt Seconds series, which also shows how late the cassette was released.
