Scott was named by his parents after Mercury 7 astronaut Malcolm Scott Carpenter.

He was educated at Yale and Oxford Universities and joined the United States Air Force. After his father created the International Rescue organisation, Scott became the pilot of one of the five special IR crafts, Thunderbird 1.

As the pilot of TB1, Scott is always the first to arrive at the Danger Zone where he assesses the situation and quickly determines which special rescue equipment would be required for the task, such as rescuing men trapped in a flooded mine. (Martian Invasion).

Personality & Traits[]

Scott is fast-talking, quick-witted, and quick-thinking. He has brains, brawn, and boldness. With all these qualities he has the confidence to make instant decisions, backed by a fierce determination and unfaltering bravery. When off duty, Scott is relaxed and good-humoured and loves home cooking - notably, Grandma Tracy's apple pie (The Uninvited).


As well as piloting Thunderbird 1, Scott also co-pilots Thunderbird 3 with his younger brother Alan Tracy and sometimes changes shifts with him and his other younger brother John Tracy aboard Thunderbird 5.

In the absence of his father, Scott takes command of the main headquarters on Tracy Island.

The only rescue in which Scott doesn't directly participate!
