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.

He trusts he can lead us that far down the path.
But, I can't see it.
I can see only the deal. A chance to fly again. A chance to make Feral pay.
It's now or never.
Again, I look to my friend. "Jake?"
Dark Kat too levels his gaze on Jake. "You do want to get back at the Commander, don't you?"
He finally admits what's been brewing inside even him. "Yes," he says flatly. "I'm in."
I blink at my partner's abrupt change of heart... and his tone of voice.
But, I turn to Dark Kat anyway. I blind myself again. I want this. "Alright. You got yourself a deal."
"Then, a deal it is," Dark Kat returns, offering me a hand to shake.
