Silverhawks, essentially, is a 1940's Chicago cop show set in outter space.
The evil criminal Mon*star and his gang of thugs has escaped from prison, and must be stopped. Unfortunately, he's on the other side of the galaxy, and no human could survive the journey to get there.
So, a team of heroes volunteer to be transformed into cyborgs, partly metal, partly real, that can withstand the rigors of the journey. Once there, they set up headquarters and police the sector. Voiced by many of the same voice actors of Thundercats, it featured some of the most interesting character designs of the decade.
