Did You Know?


Col. John 'Slim' Griffin, Starbase Command: ...I told you we should've gone by the book. "No StarCom member shall, under any circumstances, board an un-powered pod." Section C, sub-paragraph nine.
Col. James 'Dash' Derringer, Star Wing: You're right, Slim. We deserve to be crushed like a sardine can under a steam roller.
Col. Paul 'Crowbar' Corbin: Wait! Maybe I can jury-rig the repellor fields to give us some buoyancy!
Col. James 'Dash' Derringer, Star Wing: [to Slim] I don't know... Is that in the rule book, Slim?
Col. John 'Slim' Griffin, Starbase Command: It is now!
[to Crowbar]
Col. John 'Slim' Griffin, Starbase Command: Do it!

Cool show, great toys.
2 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I remember the toys a little bit more than the show, I had a whole bunch of them. It was around the time of the 'transforming machine' cartoon era after shows like Voltron, and of course Transformers. StarCom took place in a space environment with cool ships and space stations. The figures had magnets on their feet, and the ships had swing open hatches and cargo bays that would slide open just like it would in the show!

A great memorable 80's cartoon. I don't recall much of the plot except they were fighting with the guys in the dark brown suits. Still I remember it being a fun show from my childhood, and fueling my love for sci-fi.
