Bride of the Pastmaster
Tomorrow at sunrise you will become my bride! - The Pastmaster
The SWAT Kats, low on resources, are unexpectedly taken back in time to the Dark Ages where they must aid Queen Callista in her fight against the Pastmaster.
Caught in one of the Pastmaster’s time vortexes, the SWAT Kats are drawn back to the Dark Ages. They find the wretched warlock invading “Megalith City” with an army of magical monsters, threatening to destroy the town unless its leader , Queen Callista, Callie Briggs’ lookalike ancestor , agrees to marry him.
And that’s not the only romantic complication; when Callista sees Razor pull a certain sword from a certain stone, she falls for him, causing T-Bone to become jealous.
This fun episode puts the SWAT Kats in unfamiliar territory, both physically and emotionally , this is the first time either of them has a requited love interest.
Queen Callista is as courageous, intelligent and likable as her present-day descendant. (Tress MacNeille’s excellent vocal performance, subtly different from her Callie Briggs voice, adds a lot to the Queen’s appeal.) “Bride” also uses a clever framing device: the episode begins and ends with the SWAT Kats in mid-battle against two worm-like sea monsters who are attacking oil tankers.

Callie blinked. "No?"
"I don't want any investigation!" Manx was practically standing on Callie's desk now. "That will definitely drive Mr. Young away!"
"How could it? We've been in worse situations than this! And, if we don't do something soon, the city will shut down!"
"I don't care! We can't involve the Enforcers in any type of investigation, no matter how trivial." Manx looked even more nervous. "Is there anything else we can do?"
"Well..." Callie paused as if to contemplate something. "Feral did tell me that there was one account Hard Drive couldn't get into because he was discovered. We might be able to float the city on that account."
Manx sighed, and then shrugged his shoulders. "Fine. Do it. I'll leave it you."
Callie crossed her arms. "And if we run out of money?"
"I'm sure you'll be able to figure something out, my dear." Manx walked toward Callie's office door. "Now if you'll excuse me, I have a golf game to attend to."
