The future war is now. Hiding out in Alaska, Sarah and John
Connor, along with ex-counterterrorist agent, Dieter von
Rossbach, are playing a waiting game -- trying to live
their lives but ever watchful of Cyberdyne Corporation and
the possibility of Skynet, the artificial intelligence
network destined to destroy the world as we know it.
They've fought for years to prevent this, and now,
believing that John's love, Wendy, sacrificed herself to
successfully prevent Skynet from becoming sentient, they
think humanity may finally have a chance to survive.
Then the United States government announces that all
military and communications systems will be placed under
the command of a brand-new, extremely powerful Artificial
Intelligence named Skynet, effective immediately.
Racing desperately to alert their allies, the Connors
discover that Wendy's sacrifice was in vain -- far from
being harmless, Skynet is active, sentient, and ready to
terminate the human nuisance once and for all. Engineered
by the relentless AI, the apocalypse of Judgment Day turns
cities into deathtraps and releases mass destruction across
In the nuclear winter that follows, our world changes
forever: Cities become deathtraps of disease and famine
patrolled by implacable machines, the first Hunter-Killer
and T-90 Terminator units begin to exterminate their human
prey, and all human life faces a desperate battle for
survival against a seemingly unstoppable enemy.
But there is still one rallying cry of hope, one man who
will step to the forefront of the long fight to keep
humanity from extinction: John Connor.
