M.A.S.K. Technologies:

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 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:

Already in the episode Counter-Clockwise Caper Scott had converted T-Bob into a watercraft. There he used him as a jet ski.

When Scott and T-Bob are shipwrecked with the rubber boat in this episode, they save themselves with T-Bob's new surfboard mode from the small island.

Unlike with his jet ski mode, Scott doesn't have to rebuild him for this.

T-Bob folds his legs back and the surfboard folds out from his belly.

However, the fun is over after the first big wave.

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

 (click for images)

M.A.S.K. has its transport jet to move its vehicles that cannot fly or swim. Also, the vehicles are sometimes piggybacked by others. But how do the vehicles of V.E.N.O.M. that can't fly or swim get across water or farther distances?

In the episode we can see it. Switchblade has attached a transport device that can attach and transport vehicles. In the episode it is Jackhammer and Piranha. Piranha has a submarine and can swim, but not the motorcycle part.

The transport device has hooks in which the vehicles are hooked. Whether these can be resized, or each vehicle has its own, is not seen.

Likewise one does not see whether the transport device disappears in Switchblade, or is dismounted.

Rax and Dagger are on board Jackhammer during the flight.

Summary of Follow The Rainbow

Location of the episode*: Ireland
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. goes to Ireland to find the treasure of Brian Boru at the end of the rainbow.  

Safety tip*
Matt stops Scott from adding lighter fluid to a barbeque fire, as it could explode.

Facts worth knowing about Follow The Rainbow

Particularly in this episode*:

•First episode featuring Calhoun Burns, Julio Lopez and their vehicles Raven and Firefly.
Cliff Dagger and Miles Mayhem use Piranha as an escape vehicle after Sly Rax conveniently abandoned it.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

Scott is in and out of sea water several times but his hair and clothes never look wet afterwards.
•When Mayhem orders Dagger to 'Move these rocks, now!', Dagger is illustrated with black hair, then returns to his normal bald look for the next shot.
Sly Rax's mask is shown lowering onto his head in a split-screen shot, even though his motorcycle doesn't have a roof like the other vehicles.
•When Thunderhawk drives off the cliff before transforming into jet mode, the shadow underneath the vehicle remains the same in the air as when it was on solid ground.
Scott sadly blinks after his father tells him and T-Bob to 'wait in here' but his eyelids are not colored in, leaving only an outline of his eyes moving over them.
