While the creators of the fan comic will have to supply answers to your other inquiries (as I can't myself), I think it's fair to point out that the title of the show (which the comic is heavily inspired by) is SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron.Betaruga wrote:Also, how are they a "squadron" with a single two person jet when there are so many members, and without functional flight suits...?
There is a good reason for that one. It wasn't that we didn't like him or anything like that (as I remember one of the fandom's fic quirks was a lot of people always offed Chance or he always got his butt kicked lol). Just with how our script is set up, he was the better of the two to perish.razorREO wrote:I've loved every bit of Nova Squadron so far and I've read part one all the way through more than once. Though it just kinda puts a hollow space in my heart to know that T-Bone got killed off early on. What made you two decide on that? Just wondering if it was necessary to the plot or...? *goes through the fourth wall and hugs Chance to make sure he stays alive*
Jake is still a SWAT Kat, he just can't handle being out in the field due to injuries. He pushed himself to take on what he could but he knows it'll come to a point where mistakes will be made.LowdogCraft wrote:I love Nova Squadron as well, and I was kinda sad when Razor just... Stopped being a SWAT Kat. It would have been interesting if he still was one, but I guess after Chance died, he lost his strength to keep going. D;
We never said he wasn't, or least we didn't realize it may come across that way. Razor will still be there to not just guide the new group but to help with the equipment, the jet, etc. and show the others the basics. He'll be involved in their training as well.Betaruga wrote:Got a couple questions
Why isn't Razor remaining a SWAT Kat by remaining their tech, systems and repair guy?
Two reasons. One is to fit along with the show's titling. The second as MoDaD said, a squadron implies two or more individuals or troops. He is spot on with his answer. Also in regards to Nova, we tossed around several names before choosing Nova Squadron. Nova is from the Latin word novus meaning "new". It wasn't quite as deep as MoDaD's explanation but I really like the comparison. <3Betaruga wrote:Also, how are they a "squadron" with a single two person jet when there are so many members, and without functional flight suits...?
The premise is basically "what would become of Megakat City when the SWAT Kats are unable to protect it any longer?" It's akin to say Batman Beyond where Bruce wasn't able to protect Gotham as Batman (tho Jake isn't as ancient XD nor as bitter/grouchy though he'll have his moments).Betaruga wrote: I don't get the premise. I also don't get why so many of the members are either teen/ish ages, or why there aren't members who are, say, already professional or "underground" fighters, or people with mercenary/agent backgrounds or up and coming technical genius quality, etc? The cast, especially with the sword bit, I just have a pretty hard time grasping the logistics? Feel free to disregard my confusion I know in the end it's just a fun and ambitious fan project on your part.
