Jane Connor is an anomaly born of the combined efforts to interfere with the timeline of the Terminator-verse.
History[edit | edit source]
Born to Sarah Connor in a hospital located in Odessa, Texas on October 4, 1984 during a battle between the Machine, who has rampaged its way south from an appearance in the Canadian Tundra and the last surviving Resistance fighter, Mary Randall. Mary is aided in the battle by Detective Mark Sloan, who has come to believe in the existence of Skynet and the Terminator future. Their battle is complicated by the interference of a serial killer Sloan has been tracking known as Catfish who has also come to know of the future apocalypse and is seeking to insure it. In a significant departure from the original timeline, however, Sarah Connor gives birth to a girl, Jane Connor, laying the groundwork for a significantly different alternate future.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The birth of Jane Connor causes the first documented spontaneous instant reset of events due to temporal interference. The last Terminator instantly vanishes, as do all effects and casualties of its presence, only deaths caused by human hands (Catfish) and Mary herself remain.
- Judgment Day still happens, but the Resistance under Jane's leadership gain the victory over Skynet. It is possibly that Jane Connor completes the final assault on Skynet earlier, preventing it from initiating the predestination paradox cycle by sending back the first Terminator. Hence, the whole timeline is reset.
- This may have created a Hyper-Stable Loop: Since the many interventions in space-time, a few timelines have been created. Jane Connor's works essentially "Resets" it to the very first timeline (John Connor born to a guy from 1984, Skynet developed from scratch) which will spawn the second (John born from Kyle Reese) and all the others, until Jane's timeline, resetting the Hyper-Loop again.
