Default Starfleet (1982 puppet series)

Remember the old Starfleet puppet show on ITV on Saturday mornings back in the 80s? It was originally called X-Bomber in Japan. Anyhow seems the Japanese fans still remember it and there's a rather expensive fully transforming model of the Dai-X robot coming out next May -

I remember watching it in college and recently got the DVD set
Its not as good as Gerry's stuff but if you equate it to Terrahawks it as enjoyable
Plus they killed off a character

Yes I remember main characters getting killed off too. Plus all the bad guys and gals got their comeuppance at the end. Quite different from the usual kids shows so it always sticks in my mind.
