Fun fact: Ripley's uncle was Doodles Weaver of Spike Jones fame.

I was trying to find some way to link the THUNDERBIRDS to FLASH GORDON when it hit me: Brains! He may be a descendent of Doctor Zarkov who designed his own spacecraft. Maybe he found or examined Kal-L's rocket. And we were never told Brains' real name.

The Tracys were, of course, part of DICK TRACY's family tree through his natural son Joseph. And Tracy was no stranger to space travel, special vehicles and advanced gadgets!
