The [=SilverHawks=], the "partly metal, partly real" space law-enforcement for the Limbo Galaxy (which wasn't much bigger than a solar system) oppose The Mob, run by the evil Mon*Star. The show wasn't as bad as you might have thought (with a few exceptions), despite its total lack of astronomy, physics, or really any sort of science. However the character designs are interesting, the characters themselves are engaging, and most of the stories are fun.

* AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle: A subversion. While it does occur at the end of each episode, it's neither a "[[AnAesop moral of the story]]", nor a "public service announcement". Instead, it's a short astronomy lesson, mostly about the solar system and its nine planets (the show was produced much before [[PlutoIsExpendable Pluto's demotion to dwarf planet]]) presented within the context of Bluegrass training the Copper Kidd as a pilot.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: While all of the original main heroes, except Copper Kid, have military ranks these seem to have little bearing on their actual positions. Bluegrass, a colonel (presumably Air Force), technically holds the highest comparative rank out of everyone but is clearly below Commander Stargazer and (Lieutenant) Quicksilver on the team.

Added DiffLines:

* MildlyMilitary: Despite the military ranks most of the characters possess, they behave more as a team of peers. They also observe very little military protocol.

* LeitMotif: All over the place (a big-band "sleazy" number for the casino and bar, a noir-esque piano piece for Stargazer and scenes within his office, ThemeMusicPowerUp for when the Silverhawks move into action, etc).

** Considering that their civilization has FasterThanLightTravel and {{cyborg}}s that breathe in space, [[FridgeLogic it actually makes sense]] to have that kind of longevity. With that kind of biotech, a century's lifespan would be ridiculously small.

%%* MirrorMoralityMachine* MirrorMoralityMachine: In "Switch", there's a gas that temporarily switches people's moralities. The [=SilverHawks=] become robbers and the mob captures them. Once Mon*Star and his mob are back to normal, they moan over the fact they returned the stolen money and then they try to take advantage of the fact most [=SilverHawks=] are in prison.
