A real brainteaser!

Im looking for the name of this series in the 80s.
it was made with animatronic puppets. it was a futuristic story in space!
it wasnt thunderbirds. the storys where gloomy and people died in them.
something about a crew in space in the future. the show came on super channel or sky tv in the 80s. if anybody knows the name of this series, please reply! i was a kid then and its been buggering me for over ten years! Thanks to anyone who knows! :P
Im a jerk!

But it was puppets though? Was it Terrahawks?
In the year 2020 Earth is under threat from Martian androids who want revenge on the human race. They consist of Zelda, her son Youngstar and her sister called Sister. An organisation is set up on Earth called Terrahawks, which is top secret to the rest of the world. This is led by Dr Tiger Ninestein with other characters such as Sergeant Major Zero.

lol, no that sucks ass and last i heard all the saturday morning cartoons were getting a release towards the end of the year (super mario bros, Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc.). They suck ass though, won't be buying/downloading any of them... not that big on kids tv /cartoons really.

I just check to see if they've got anything cool in, i had a keyring once that got stolen that i'd like again, and there's some quirky japanese things sometimes. Same goes for resident evil and alien. I always check in to see what there is.
