Taking place in a distant galaxy called Limbo, an intergalactic
threat known as Mon-Star [Earl Hammond] and his henchmen break free
from a prison planet. Commander Stargazer sends a signal to Earth
Command announcing the prison break, and a group of heroes known
as the Silverhawks are assembled by the Interplanetary Control Force.
The Silverhawks - cyborgs whose bodies were altered with robotics,
were led by Jonathan "Quicksilver" Quick [Peter Newman], his mechanical
hawk Tally Hawk, Emily "Steelhart" Hart [Maggie Wheeler] and Will
"Steelwill" Hart [Bob McFadden] - both of which had mechanical heart
replacements, Bluegrass [Larry Kenney] - a cowboy with a sonic-blasting
guitar, and Copper Kid - a mathematician from the planet of Mimes.
alters his body with the help of a "Moonstar", and leads
a group that includes the circular-saw laden Buzzsaw, Mo-le-cu-lar
[Doug Preis] - a shapeshifting undercover operative, Mumbo Jumbo
[Peter Newman] - a metallic centaur, Melodia [Maggie Wheeler] -
who attacks with powerful sonic notes, Yes-man - Mon-Star's unintelligent
brute, Pokerface [Larry Kenney] - a greedy robotic being with slot
machines for eyes, Zero - a crafty criminal who steals memories
with a special prod, and Wind Hammer [Doug Preis] - who uses a tuning
fork weapon to manipulate weather.
Silverhawks travel in the Mirage - a space vehicle with 5 cockpits
that detach (excluding the main cockpit, which holds pilot Bluegrass).
With their retracting metallic masks and wings, the Silverhawks
can soar through space on their own, as well as experience super
speed and strength.
concluded with a simple science quiz presented by Copper Kid, who
would choose the correct answer on his computer screen.
