Intelligence One, also referred to as The Agency, is an elite covert agency of the United States government. The agency is the employer of Race Bannon, who is assigned to protect Jonny Quest to ensure that Dr. Benton Quest is not compromised.
The agency occasionally calls in Dr. Quest to provide his expertise.
After the death of Dr. Quest's wife, Intelligence One assigned agent Race Bannon to guard Dr. Quest's son Jonny "twenty-four hours a day as tutor, companion, and all around watchdog." The reason for this is that "the government is taking no chances with the boy's security" since "if Jonny fell into the hands of enemy agents, Dr. Quest's value to science would be seriously impaired."
