Same here, I also think that Feral would never betray the Enforcer, no=
 matter how bad on what they do to him,and I think that in "Metal Urgency"=
 he already said that he doesn't do deals with scum. Besides, what would=
 Felina say if she found out that her favorite uncle has gone bad?

Now if it's Steel, that could turn out very different indeed, but then=
 again, why do Turmoil want him?

Plot idea:

Feral and Steel is flying the helicopter (With Feral on the controls of=
 course) fighting Turmoil's air carrier, Turmoil is curious on who is flying=
 that chopper, so she ordered her crew to take out that chopper and drag it=
 to the carrier. Feral and Steel were knocked out by the vertigo beam, and=
 the rest is just like the final version, except Steel is in the place of T-=

Now, what will happen next?

Yeah, just because the series is named SWAT Kats, it doesn't mean that we=
 have to watch the guys all the time
