The Chaos Crew interrupts the pleasant and quiet life of Ned Tedford, to steal the orchard growth serum inside the highly- secure Global Seed Vault. Kayo and Captain Rigby respond, with the help of John Tracy, but things take a turn when a computer virus infects EOS and the serum touches Ned's pet geranium, Gladys - turning her into Giant Gladys!

John: "Ready for your first mission in the field, EOS?"
EOS: "Is my program backed up in case something goes wrong?"
John: "That's just a growth serum in a seed vault. What could possibly go wrong?"
John: "Yes, you're backed up. We need to work on your sense of humor."

- This episode borrows plot points from both the Thunderbirds 2086 episode Kudzilla and the classic episode Attack of the Alligators!
- It's also a continuation of Attack of the Reptiles.
- This episode features several series "firsts":
- First to feature the Chaos Crew, without The Hood.
- The first time someone other than Kayo drives Thunderbird Shadow.
- And the first in which Thunderbird 5 is the only Thunderbird craft from the original series to appear in the story (except for the opening and closing credits).
- This is the first time we see a EOS-drive.
- Therefore this episode marks the first - and, to date, only - assignment for EOS as a member of International Rescue
- Speaking of TB5 - its Space Elevator is shown landing somewhere other than at Tracy Island.
- This is the third episode to only feature one member of the Tracy family; this time, it's John.
- Sadly, this episode features the first - and, to date, only - on-screen ‘death’ of a character in the reboot series...since poor Gladys is unfortunately destroyed as a result of the growth serum.
- As such, it is, rather appropriately, the final appearance of Ned in the series.
- The Global Seed Vault was probably inspired by The Svalbard Global Seed Vault located in Svalbard.
