Animated Appearances

Star-Vipers were animated only for commercials.

Headcanon

Star-Vipers were introduced to Cobra's forces in 1985, with their appearance represented by Version 1. They ranked in the second tier of Vipers, alongside their Astro-Viper counterparts and above the Strato-Viper and AVAC units from which they were selected. They served as Cobra's primary space vehicle specialists until Cobra's last space mission in 1989.

A STAR-VIPER is a qualified Cobra STRATO-VIPER with an electro-magnetic shunt surgically implanted in the right side of the brain. During high-speed, upper-atmospheric dog-fights, electronic impulses are introduced through the shunt, stimulating the reflexes while heightening awareness for split-second decisions.
"Star-Viper are exceedingly dangerous in action! They routinely execute fast maneuvers with insect-like efficiency. However, they are referred to as 'Jolt-Heads' by their fellow Cobras and are known to be distracted and generally disoriented between missions."
Toy Notes: Item #6252. The shunt should probably be in the left side of the brain to achieve its intended purpose, but maybe I just don't understand the technology. The box art, like the commercial animation, shows a black visor instead of the red one released.
