i realized i hadn't tackled a Where so far, so here's this place. satellite headquarters for hybrid metal-humanish officers with space birds (not usually Angry). yeah, 'SilverHawks' and their ilk were toy-peddling schoolyard entrepreneurs & the stories are now seen, outside nostalgia, as almost insultingly thin. but dammit if i didn't race home from school to watch & re-watch My Stories. and though the source material was, um, what it was, it was a fantastic launching pad for us dorks to shoot off on our own adventures. "...shoulders of giants" indeed. i still want a treehouse.
