"Stardive" is the twentieth episode of Thunderbirds 2086, and twenty first produced overall. The episode first aired at an unspecified point after 1982.
Dylan is transformed from rescuer to rescuee when a disaster strands him on board the Centaur spaceship alongside Kristen Elliot, a rival pilot from the Blue Angels squad. With the ship locked on a decaying orbit towards Jupiter and air running out, the pair must put aside their differences to stay alive. Could their rivalry evolve into something more?
