OK, THIS CHAPTER IS VERY SHORT, BUT IT'S JUST A PRELUDE TO THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF MY SWAT KATS IN TIME SERIES! THANKS ALL FOR THE REVIEWS!

As Chance was helping Jake install the time components to the Turbokat, he said, "You realize buddy that if we're successful, and restore our own timeline, Dark Kat will still be alive.."

"Yes I do,but don't tell that to the kats of this timeline, alright?" Jake whispered, as Commander Feral came into the hangar with Mayor Briggs and Professor Hackle.

"Good news, you two.." smiled Feral, "Once the katizens being held prisoner in Dark Kat city heard about the omega's death, they rose up against all of the ninja kats. My good friend Dr. Greenbox is now back in charge at Pumadyne industries, so you'll have no trouble getting the plutonium you'll need to operate your time ship."

"Cool, then let's head out buddy," Chance replied, looking at Jake, "Is everything all set?"

"Yep, we got everything installed, but unlike Doc's Delorean, we'll have to go a lot faster than 88 miles per hour to break the time barrier.." Jake said, "We'll have to use the speed of heat engines to blast the Turbokat into space."

As the SWAT Kats hopped into the Turbokat, Callie shouted, "Good luck to both of you brave kats, it was an honor to meet you!"

"You're quite welcome Ms. Briggs..." Chance replied, "Thanks again Commander Feral, I wish we could stay, but we have a future to save in the past!"

"Do us proud, SWAT Kats!" nodded Feral, who then back away with the others as the sleek jet took off, and bolted into the sky. Putting her arm around her husband, Callie sighed, "I hope they restore Megakat City to what it once was, Ulyssis.."

"I hope so too, my dear.." sighed Feral, kissing her cheek. Ten minutes later, Jake and Chance arrived at Dark Kat City, and saw just how sinister it looked. Feral had described it in detail to them earlier, but up close, it looked even worse. Dark Kat's fortress city looked like something out of a horror movie, with a high solid steel wall going around the entire length of it. Pumadyne Industries was located in the same area as before, and as soon as the Jake and Chance landed on the roof, they were immediately greeted by Dr. Greenbox, and several of his colleagues.

"Ahh, you two must be these SWAT Kats who killed that monster Dark Kat!" exclaimed the scientist, as he gladly shook their paws, "Commander Feral told me that you needed plutonium to travel into time, and although I thought he was pulling my tail at first, by the tone of his voice, I knew Ulyssis was serious.."

"It's the truth doc, Dark Kat stole a time machine, and went back into the past to blow up Megakat City before the two of us became SWAT Kats.." said Jake. "So we need to go way back into the past ourselves so DK doesn't get his paws on that time machine.."

"Take as much plutonium that you need, then.." nodded Dr. Greenbox, "It's in the storage room right below us.."

"Thanks, we appeciate it.." said Chance. Less than an hour later, He and Jake had the plutonium on board, and were ready to travel into time...
