M.A.S.K. Technologies:

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.

The M.A.S.K.Transport Jet is an enormous transport plane used by M.A.S.K. to fly their vehicles to other locations.

In the episode Caesar's Sword, Gloria Baker is seen piloting the Transport Jet with Hondo MacLean as her co-pilot.

In the episode Green Nightmare, Alex Sector and Dusty Hayes are at the controls, with Brad Turner serving as navigator. Alex and Dusty are again seen piloting the vehicle in the episode The Everglades Oddity, while Ace Riker, who is an ex-test pilot, looks over their shoulders.

Alex is once more seen piloting the jet in The Creeping Terror, with Jacques LaFleur as co-pilot and Matt & Scott Trakker in passenger seats while T-Bob is blow drying Scott's hair.

In the episode Plunder of Glowworm Grotto, the pilot is Bruce Sato, with Dusty once again serving as co-pilot and Gloria in the navigators position. However, Bruce boards Julio Lopez's vehicle Firefly and exits the Transport Jet while still in flight. Then Dusty saves Bruce's life using his Backlash mask from inside the Jet's hangar bay door. Thus leaving Gloria allone to pilot the vehicle.

In several episodes, such as Curse of Solomon's Gorge; The Lost Fleet and Follow the Rainbow the Transport Jet lifts off immediately after dispatching the M.A.S.K. vehicles and agents with no indication who could be flying it.

In the episode Panda Power, an unidentified pilot drives a forklift carrying a crate out of the transport, deposits the crate on the ground and leaves.

In the episode Dragonfire, Scott Trakker mistakingly calls the Transport Jet a "hovercraft".

In the episode Stone Trees, the Transport Jet is unable to land in the Canadian forest, so Condor flies out and Volcano dives off the ramp with a parachute. It is unclear if Volcano is being operated by remote control or has an unseen driver since Jacques LaFleur was already on location. It is also unclear who piloted the jet during this mission.

Similarly, in The Scarlet Empress, Raven exits the Jet while it still in the air and the transport pilot is never referenced.

In the episode 'Treasure of the Nazca Plain, Bruce Sato is manning a communication station aboard the jet with Brad Turner and Julio Lopez looking over his shoulder. Who is piloting at this time remains unknown.

In Gate of Darkness, Brad Turner seves as pilot and Buddy Hawks is the navigator. Matt requests that Brad makes a video scan of the Gate of Darkness using a multi-headed camera that deploys from the bottom of the jet. Matt then orders Brad and Dusty to do a Trans-Drop, ejecting their vehicles Condor and Firecracker from the plane while it hovers in mid-air.

Two of the same projectors used as a camera in Gate of Darkness are used to create a magnetic barrier over a ship in The Manakara Giant. Once again, the M.A.S.K. vehicles, in this case Thunderhawk and Raven exit the hovering Transport jet.

In Raiders of the Orient Express, Slingshot, Condor and Thunderhawk are seen boarding the Transport Jet. It remains unknown who opens the landing doors for them. All of them exit the Transport in flight.


T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

T-Bob has already taken more than one dent on previous missions.

In the episode A Matter Of Gravity Scott had to dent him several times.

In this episode, T-Bob can even repair small dents himself.

After T-Bob is kidnapped by a monkey, a branch breaks on the escape and T-Bob falls into the depths.

After T-Bob reassures himself that nothing has happened to him, he finds a small dent.

He removes this with his dent lifter. For this, his flap on the head flips open, the device comes out on one arm and puts the suction cup over the dent.

Afterwards, T-Bob is like new.

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.

Summary of Dragonfire

Location of the episode*: Mount Kinabalu, Borneo
 
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. is after a jade dragonhead that is kept in the Temple of the Dragon on Mount Kinabalu. They terrorize a village, demanding to know the location of the Temple. M.A.S.K. rushes to stop them, but before they can, V.E.N.O.M. inadvertently releases the guardians of the temple, the monitor lizards.  

Safety tip*
Caught outdoors during a thunderstorm, Scott warns T-Bob not to hide under a tree.
 

Facts worth knowing about Dragonfire

Particularly in this episode*:

•During the agent selection, the M.A.S.K. Computer shows digital images of Brad Turner and Julio Lopez wearing civilian clothing instead of their M.A.S.K. uniforms.
Miles Mayhem is Stinger's co-pilot during this mission.
•Both Brad Turner and Sly Rax are seen without their sunglasses during this story.
Miles Mayhem identifies Shark by name and even refers to her as a 'she'. While it is not unusual to refer to a vehicle as a female, it could also apply to it's driver, Gloria Baker.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•Even though Gloria Baker is described as a black belt in Kung Fu by the M.A.S.K.-Computer, when she is seen practicing it she wears a white belt.
•When Simbala runs off carrying T-Bob, she disappears just before Scott's legs obscure her.
Matt trakker calls the poisonous mushrooms 'flowers'. Granted, he was losing consciousness when he did so.
Scott Trakker refers to the M.A.S.K. Transport Jet as a 'hovercraft'.
Julio Lopez is outside the M.A.S.K. Transport Jet with Matt trakker as it lands, but then his vehicle Firefly is seen driving down it's ramp.
•During the final battle, Julio Lopez uses the command "Streamer Oilslick" but fires the cannon on his vehicle Firefly instead of his mask, Streamer.  

Other publications from Dragonfire:

•A paperback based on the episode, written by Kenneth Harper and Bruce Hogarth, was published by Knight Books in 1986. It was number 08 in this series. The book was available in English, German, and Spanish (as far as currently known)
