Description:  The series is based on a toy line from Matchbox/Those Characters From Cleveland that began in 1988. The plotline is also very standard: a band of airborne pirates have discovered time travel and are using this knowledge to cause havoc in both the past and the future. The governments of the future react by recruiting the best fighter pilots in history to hunt down the pirates. The pirates are known as the Skull Squadron (fans of "Robotech" know where this came from, of course) and the government's team is the Ring Raiders--called this for the cybernetic rings they wear.
