Windhammer creates a space storm at Mon-Star's bidding to distract the SilverHawks from activities on Brimstar. Which works well as most of the Hawks are out on routine patrol in the Mirage. Quicksilver and Tally-Hawk however are off on their own in The Spirithawk. Other than the one brief shot in the last episode this is the first time we really get to see the SpiritHawk in action. Anyhow, Hardware at Mon-Star's bidding is targeting a Mega Missile at the Earth, and although Commander Stargazer knows what the mob is up to, none of the Hawks can be alerted due to the storm. And to the distinct misfortune of Stargazer Zero the Memory Thief has snuck aboard Hawk Haven. Quietly stealing into Stargazer's command center, Zero (who sounds like a Frenchman) zaps all the memories out of the Commander.

As the space storm abates Quicksilver returns to Hawk Haven to find Stargazer with no memory at all. After reviewing the security tape Quicksilver tracks down Seymour the space cabbie who, pretty stupidly, had transported Zero aboard. Seymour informs Quicksilver of how he dropped Zero off on the planet Fence, where he plans to sell Stargazer's memories. And Quicksilver with Tally-hawk in stride is once again on the move.

On Fence, Quicksilver makes short work of some ruffians and captures Zero the Memory Thief. He then takes Zero back to Hawk Haven and forces him to return Stargazer's memory. Who of in turn promptly sends Quicksilver (and eventually the other Hawks) off to the Brimstar to challenge Mon-Star and stop the Mega Missile. Finally, the SilverHawks assault Mon-Star's base and dramatically manage to stop the mob in the nick of time. But whatever has become of Zero…
