Whoo boy this is a doozy of a story. A lot to unpack here but some things that stood out you might consider looking at...
Aaaand they killed Rex Shard??

Movie Plot 1: SWAT Kats: Infected
After arriving home, a young Chance Furlong discovers that his mother Emily Watson's house has been burglarized. Enforcers weapons developer and scientist Emily Watson streamed a live video message through social media to expose the dark truth about the Enforcers and their secret projects as well as to explain the reason behind her disappearance. The transmission abruptly ends after a few seconds and the evidence of the existence of the transmission mysteriously disappears from Emily's social profile and is never found again. Chance's mother gathers hidden documents from a secret safe hidden behind the wall of her bedroom, takes Chance to the home of Emmett Clawson and his son Jake Clawson, and then mysteriously departs and never returns. Later, Emily is aboard a private cruise with the intentions of leaving MegaKat City forever. Four assassins sent by the Enforcers to kill Emily invade the cruise and kill both Emily and the captain before leaving in an Enforcer helicopter with the research. Commander Ulysses Feral notifies Emmett about Emily's disappearance, and Emmett decides to take care of Chance.
Why did you replace Dark Kat in the scene where Jake and Chance get clipped by Feral’s jet and their jet crashes into the building?Years later, Chance and Jake are young adults who assist to the Enforcer Academy, where Jake has caught the eye of Felina Feral, Commander Feral's niece. Later, Chance, Jake and Felina graduate from the Enforcer Academy and become part of the Enforcer Air Force Squadron. One day, the city gets attacked by a group of terrorists who are heading towards Enforcer Headquarters to drop a dangerous bomb and destroy the building. Chance and Jake join the rest of the squadron to put a stop the terrorists, Chance being the pilot and Jake being the Radar Intercept Officer. During an ensuing air battle, Jake deactivates the weapons system of the enemy jet with a missile, the bomb is also damaged by the same missile. Then, Jake locked another missile to take down the enemy, but their former superior, Commander Feral, interferes and orders them to back off even though their missiles were already locked, meaning that it was their tag. This provokes an argument between them that distracts Ulysses and causes him to accidentally hit Chance and Jake’s jet. While Ulysses’ jet was completely operational, Chance and Jake’s jet refused to respond, so they had no other choice but to eject before the jet crashed on Enforcer Headquarters. Ulysses was distracted by the crash and lost track of the terrorists.
Not much of a date there. XDLater, in front of the destroyed Enforcer Headquarters, an enraged Commander Feral discharged Chance and Jake from the force and assigned them to do long-term community service at the MegaKat City Military Salvage Yard to pay for the damages caused by the accident, which considering their salary, was very unlikely. When Chance and Jake arrived at the Salvage Yard, they waited for their supervisors Burke and Murray to arrive, as Commander Feral instructed them to do. Burke and Murray arrived at the Salvage Yard in their truck and gave them the keys to run the place. Additionally from running the Salvage Yard, Chance and Jake also ran a garage called "Jake and Chance's Garage". Felina visits Chance and Jake at the Salvage Yard because she wanted to know what happened between them and her uncle. After that, she talks with Jake and private and confesses to him. Jake invited her to a date at a park, which she kindly accepts, but with the condition of bringing Chance as well.
I thought the Enforcers erased everything off the Internet Emily posted but they let stuff others posted stay up? Why didn’t they find and assassinate them?After arriving home from the date, Chance finds an old photo of him and his parents in the attic that had an address written on it. Upon going to the address, he discovers that the address was from his mother's old house. He got in and finds his mother's old papers hidden in a small space locked with a door underneath a carpet. After analyzing the papers, Chance learns that his mother Emily was a weapons developer and scientist at the secret projects department from the Enforcers. She used to work with fellow scientist Dr Elrod Purvis in the field of biochemistry. After searching around the internet, Chance discovers millions of blogs and forums surrounding conspiracy theories about the secret projects of the Enforcers and the several times the had to kill employees to prevent their cruel experiments from being known to the public. He goes to the deep web, where he finds an archived version of Emily's transmission, which was uploaded by an anonymous user. In the video, Emily explains that she was assigned to do a research, but after finding out that the Enforcers were using the research for the purpose of creating soldiers with super abilities and experimenting with homeless people they would recruit by offering them money, she took her research and never returned to the secret military underground laboratory where the Enforcers performed their cruel experiments, usually resulting in the death of civilians. In order to eliminate her, the Enforcers sent assassins to hunt her down and take her research, which explains why the house was burglarized and why Emily took those papers with her. Those papers were her research. Chance deduced that the reason she never returned was because the assassins sent by the Enforcers managed to find her and kill her.
Why are the Enforcers working on a cure for cancer? LOL They are a law enforcement agency...Later, Chance shows Emily's documents and the archived video of Emily's transmission to Jake and then takes him to his mother's old house. The next day, Chance and Jake visit Dr Elrod Purvis and reveal that Chance was the son of Emily. He lets them in and explains that one of the secret projects he and Emily were working on was the cure of cancer, which he planned to use to cure his daughter. Chance and Jake, who had already analyzed all of Emily's papers, already know that Emily had multiple projects in that folder, including a project related to cancer. Jake memorized an unresolved equation that was necessary for the research to be complete, so he used Elrod's tools to finish Emily's research and after successful results, he gave the equation to Elrod, who was astonished by Jake's accomplishment and invited him and Chance to his lab underneath Enforcer Headquarters, at the "Secret Projects" department. Chance and Jake got inside while trying to avoid Commander Feral as much as possible until they arrived at Purvis’s lab, where they helped him develop the cure for cancer using the knowledge they've acquired with Emily's papers. The cure wasn't done, but the progress was very advanced.
Um... so Chance and Jake have superpowers??Chance and Jake left Elrod's lab, but instead of leaving Enforcer Headquarters, they borrowed some extra uniforms that belonged to an employee and sneaked inside another laboratory. After exploring the place, they learn that the laboratory was where they were continuing the experiments based on Emily's research, meaning that the Enforcers didn't only kill her, but they also managed to retrieve her research. As they keep exploring the place, they get inside a small room and get locked inside. In their desperation, they push a button that activates a machine that unloads a red and blue gas that intoxicated Chance and Jake and caused them to faint. When they wake up, Jake kicks a glass window to escape, activating an alarm. He kicks the window again and they exit the room and retrieve all of the documents related to the project and a few samples to study later. Chance and Jake don two prototype Enforcer armours to protect their identities and escape from Enforcer Headquarters. As they escape, they discover that they have developed super abilities. Chance has developed super strength, the ability to stomp on the ground and create small earthquakes and the ability to expand his legs or arms to make his punches or kicks more powerful. Jake has developed super speed, telekinesis, and regeneration. At home, Chance and Jake secure the retrieved documents and samples in their closets if they ever needed them.
I don’t think DNA can be salvaged from the ashes of something...At the MegaKat Savings Bank, where Emmett works, a masked man broke inside and started shooting with an advanced weapon that disintegrated everyone inside, including Emmett. He used stolen advanced technology to open the money vaults with easy and take all of the money and escaped in a high-tech van that could become invisible. Chance and Jake learn about the incident in the bank after watching the report on Kat's Eye News and arrive at the place and learn that their father was turned into ashes. The Enforcers give the ashes matching Emmett's DNA in a container to Chance and Jake and reveal the identity and appearance of Emmett's killer, Rex Shard. Felina visits Chance and Jake at their house to support them after Emmett's death and tells Jake that she'll be there for him, but he was filled with anger and frustration and tells her to go away.
Why do Chance and Jake need armored Enforcer suits when they already have a lot of superpowers? A bit much...At their garage at the Salvage Yard, Chance and Jake discover a hidden underground hangar from the Mega War II era, where using stolen Puma-Dyne materials and equipment, they modified the prototype Enforcer armours and turned them into their official suits.
The SWAT Kats sure are stealing a lot of stuff in this.After their suits were ready, they adopted codenames, Chance was T-Bone and Jake was Razor, and together they were the SWAT Kats. The SWAT Kats stole a jet from Enforcer Headquarters and modified it with stolen technology also from Puma-Dyne and turned it into the TurboKat.
They also developed all sorts of missiles and gadgets to work with their TurboKat, their SWAT Kat armours and their superpowers. Afterwards, the SWAT Kats go on patrol during the night on the TurboKat to track down Emmett's killer. After a few nights of investigation, the SWAT Kats find Rex's hideout and sneak inside while he was sleeping and drop a mini bomb that exploded in a huge cloud of green gas that intoxicated and killed Rex.
Aaaand they killed Rex Shard??
Aaaand Felina is cool with theft and murder??Commander Feral is notified about the vigilantes after a video about them goes viral on social media and he starts a manhunt against them and makes a public live announcement through Kat's Eye News's streaming platforms where he exposes the SWAT Kats as criminals and ensures that they'll be arrested at first sight. Feeling more happy and satisfied after getting revenge against Rex, Jake decided to text Felina and tell her that he wants to be with her after all. Felina replies by giving him the address to her house so that they could have dinner with her family, but this time, it would only be her and Jake.
Later, at dinner with Felina's family at a fancy restaurant, Jake has a tense conversation with her uncle and his former superior, Commander Feral, over the accident at Enforcer Headquarters and new masked vigilante's motives. After dinner, Jake takes Felina to the secret hangar where he and Chance reveal their identities to her. Afterwards, Razor and Felina go outside of the Salvage Yard and sit on a high mountain of scrap metal, where Felina unmasks Razor and kisses him on the rain at night.
Um... I think there are better ways to check someone’s vitals. LOLMeanwhile, Elrod visits the hospital and is notified about the fatal state of his daughter Elizabeth. In an act of desperation, he rushes the cure and tries it on himself to see if it cures his own cancer, which his daughter inherited. After the injection, he has a heart attack and dies. His lab partner, Dr N Zyme, finds him dead on the floor the next morning. Zyme contacts Chance and Jake and notifies them about Elrod's death. Later, Elizabeth also dies in the hospital and her body is taken to the morgue, along with her father’s body. Chance and Jake (who are wearing their SWAT Kat suits underneath their civil clothes) visit Elrod Purvis at the morgue and after seeing his body, they notice that his fur has fallen and his skin has turned green, scaly and slimy. Chance expands the claw on his index finger and sinks it deep inside Elrod's skin to make sure that he was dead.
Why did you change Dr. Viper and Dr. Zyme’s history? Also why does Zyme call Chance and Jake? Did Elrod tell him about them? Also they couldn’t stop Viper with their superpowers?When he takes it out, his claw was filled with a green and slimy kind of blood. Elrod Purvis (now calling himself Dr Viper) awakes as a mutated monster that after seeing that his daughter was dead at the morgue, he goes insane and starts attacking everyone at the morgue before leaving the building and escaping through the sewers. Chance and Jake suit up and follow Dr Viper in the sewers, where they have a brief fight before he escapes. When the SWAT Kats return to the surface, they are chased by the Enforcers and the SWAT Kats run to an alleyway and climb the buildings and run through the rooftops, where they remotely summon the TurboKat and fly away.
Seriously? Feral wouldn’t investigate after a witness giving their account firsthand?After hearing the reports from the witness at the morgue about Dr Viper, Commander Feral is in disbelief about the existence of such creature and decides not to start an investigation on Dr Viper, but rather on the SWAT Kats.
... yeah boy, those treehouse swamp labs were popular with scientists back in the day. Viper sure was lucky to snag one. XDDDOn another public live announcement through Kat's Eye News's streaming platforms, Commander Feral falsely accuses the SWAT Kats as being the ones behind the attacks of the city morgue, including the appropriation of Dr Elrod Purvis' body. Chance and Jake are watching the live announcement on their laptops and Chance threw an empty can of milk at the laptop's screen because he was furious at Feral's accusations. Meanwhile, Dr Viper exits the city and goes to the swamp, where he finds an abandoned laboratory in a giant treehouse in the middle of the swamp.
Okay... I can’t read this anymore. This is... well is this meant to be an AU fic? All of the characters are written so OOC and events changed so much that this doesn’t resemble the series at all. There is a lot going on that there wouldn’t be enough time to fit all of this in one movie. Also why didn’t Chance and Jake investigate Emily’s murder? You kinda dropped that whole bit... There’s a lot of plot holes in this and it’s confusing to follow in how it is written. As an AU thing? Sure, go for it. There are interesting ideas here. This wouldn’t work though as any sort of movie or reboot for the SWAT Kats series IMO....
Honestly, you’d be better off creating your own characters for this premise. The only thing that is SWAT Kats about any of this are the names of characters and places. That’s it. Fans would be very disappointed and some probably angry. LOL you know how fandoms can be about small changes.

To be fair, I doubt they knew he wouldn't die from being blasted to bits. I think they fully intended to kill him there and it was just a happy accident he somehow survived. However, killing an enemy in the middle of a fight when you have no other options is not the same as following them home and assassinating them. In Chaos in Crystal, their attempts to kill Shard first with the Banshee Missiles and then with the sonic boom were both justified as he was a clear and present danger who'd left them no other options beyond literally breaking him. This is murdering him in his sleep in revenge when they can just as easily capture him alive.
This issue comes up in the movie Magnum Force, where Harry Callahan finds himself at odds with a group of rogue cops who kill criminals execution style, often after they've been found not guilty in court. They approach Harry to join their team several times and he refuses. Despite his reputation for gunning suspects down, he makes the clear distinction that he kills them while they're committing their crimes, he doesn't murder them in revenge because he didn't like how their trial turned out.
I think this is a distinction the SWAT Kats have as well; they've killed, but always when it's actually morally appropriate to do so, in order to eliminate an immediate threat, as opposed to after the bad guy isn't a threat anymore. That's flat-out murder.
TLDR: If they tracked Shard down and found him asleep, they'd capture him, not kill him, not unless he awoke and attacked them. I'm not comfortable with them using poison has on a guy while he's sleeping, no matter what he's done.

That’s what I had issue with... Smile’s version, not the canon version.
