Chain of Command is an episode of Thomas' Adventures of Thunderbirds Are Go ( 2015 TV Series).


During a joint operation between International Rescue and the Global Defence Force, a series of mishaps nearly end in disaster. In the wake of the botched mission, Colonel Martin Janus takes over the GDF, imposing a strict set of restrictions on International Rescue. As the Steam Team, and the Tracys become increasingly frustrated at being kept from rescuing innocents, Charlie, Lady Penelope and Parker attempt to reason with the colonel, and begin to realise that he is not quite what he seems.


  • The Dynamite Scene from Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure is referenced.


Henry: This is terrible!

Percy: I don't like these restrictions!

Thomas: This is even worse than what happened with the dynamite on the new branch line!

Virgil Tracy: The dynamite? What happened?

Thomas: There's something about that Colonel that I don't trust.
