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.

The stranger started laughing dismissively. With fear in his eyes, Matthew slowly came out from under his desk.
“Who... who are you? What do you want?” Matthew asked very frightened.
“So, you don't even remember me. Just as I thought. No matter. It might be even funnier that way. Does the name Hard Drive mean anything to you?”
Matthew gulped. “You mean... that you are...?”
“Yes,” Hard Drive answered proudly. “I am Hard Drive and for your information: I've just stole Sally from you and swiped your servers clean. Now it's all in here.” He pointed with his finger at his coat. “And there is nothing you can do about it.”
“B.. b.. but why? This is code for a... for a game. How could this be of any interest to someone like you?”
“It has, no doubt. You see, this game code of yours is capable of much more than you can obviously imagine. But you will see soon enough. You know I could have stolen the code from outside, but I wanted you to see how it gets stolen and by whom. So now it's time to say 'Goodbye' to Sally."
