Trooper Bart Lukens

Bart Lukens is a member of the human 9-man Resistance cell led by Colonel Mary Randall. Bart was a muscular African American who habitually wore a do-rag.


The cell assaulted a fully functional Skynet network complex 6 months after John Connor destroyed the Master Control central node. Within this facility was an operational Time Displacement Chamber, greater in scope than the prototype discovered by John Connor. Their mission was to utilize the TDE to return to 1984 and eliminate Skynet by killing key individuals in the Cyberdyne Systems hierarchy.[Issue needed]

I825.M, observed the infiltration of the cell but did not interfere directly. After reporting the infiltration to the Processing Command Center of the facility he headed for the Incubation Chamber to activate defenders for the facility. Only 3 units were available for immediate activation; C890.L, C850.D and HC875.S.[Issue needed]

3 members of the team were killed during the assault, leaving the technician, Lieutenant Koufaks to initiate the TDE and send the remaining 5 members of the team to the past. His orders were to destroy the unit in order to prevent any Skynet assets from following. Unfortunately for Koufaks, just as he began shooting the controls for the TDE, three Terminators activated by I825.M captured him. After interrogation, the Terminators elected to use Koufaks as a gun cabinet, slicing open his belly and inserting a Plasma Pistol, then cauterizing the wound shut.[Issue needed]

The Terminators took Koufaks with them to the past with the partially repaired TDE. The damage he was able to inflict locked the target time coordinates for the unit. Upon arrival in the past, C890.L ripped the Plasma Pistol out of the poor lieutenant's body, terminating him.[Issue needed]

After arriving in 1990, Mary directed Naiomi and Raul to acquire clothing, food, and other supplies; while Bart was to secure weapons, and Mary and Alan would seek housing for the cell. They then initiated surveillance on a Cyberdyne Systems facility to acquire targets needed to preempt the Skynet genesis. After kidnapping Dr. Ed Astin and leading a failed assassination attempt against Dr. Bertram Hollister, Mary brought Dr Astin back to the safe house where Bart and the other cell members tried to convince him of the truth and the future war. Enraged at Astin's disbelief, Bart was ready to kill him on the spot, but Naiomi understood the difficulty Mary faced when presented with the opportunity to have to kill another human being, and was instrumental in Mary convincing Bart and the rest of the cell to allow a disbelieving Astin to leave alive.[Issue needed]

Bart was terminated by C890.L during a high speed chase across a bridge. He was shot from behind while trying to drive and fend off HC875.S crawling across the hood.[Issue needed]
