M.A.S.K. Technologies:

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.

T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

Like all MASK agents' vehicles, Scott's vehicle can transform T-Bob. In this, and many other episodes, T-Bob's default mode can be seen.

T-Bob has a wheel on which he can ride after his transformation, like a one-wheeled scooter.

Scott uses T-Bob very often as a means of transportation, transforming T-Bob into scooter mode.

This mode was also part of the toy, but rather poorly implemented, as T-Bob had 3 wheels here.

V.E.N.O.M. Henchmen

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

The imitated airfield is one of the largest bases in all episodes that V.E.N.O.M uses to achieve its own goals.

V.E.N.O.M has created the imitation airfield in the desert, under the pretext of reaching a gypsum factory. As a side benefit, V.E.N.O.M used it to support the economy of nearby McKenna.

The imitation airfield near McKenna was created using holograms and a runway that could rotate out of the ground. Turned back again, runways looked like desert sand. Below the imitated airfield was the large VENOM base.

The airfield was transformed to hijack an explorer and a cargo plane.

A large number of pop-up laser cannons and VENOM henchmen were used for defense, and access to the base was via a ramp.

Until M.A.S.K. came on the scene, everything was going according to plan for V.E.N.O.M. They managed to hijack the research plane and a cargo plane. Further plans were foiled by M.A.S.K.

Miles Mayhem tried to destroy the base with a self-destruct device, but the explosion was foiled by Bruce and Gloria.

Summary of Vanishing Point

Location of the episode*: Nevada

Short summery*: When a cargo plane mysteriously vanishes after landing at it's designated airport, Matt moves to ensure the safety of his new jet that is due to be shown to the military. He discovers that V.E.N.O.M. are somehow hijacking planes. They have a fake airport disguised as an underground hangar out in the desert, and send out false radar signals to fool the real airports as to where the planes will be landing.  

Safety tip*
T-Bob tries to save time by carrying more wooden logs than he can handle, and trips. Scott knows he should never carry more than he can handle.
