This page is about T3 timeline as shown in the novel, for the one from the film, see Rise of the Machines timeline (film).

The Rise of the Machines timeline, or "Kyla's World",[1] follows Terminator 2: Judgment Day timeline and leads to the events in the novelization of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, as well as two novels: Terminator Dreams and Terminator Hunt. It is created by the destruction of the Cyberdyne Building.

Avant notesEdit

See also: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (film)§Continuity notes

It should be noted that at least two or three continuity errors, which could be taken as retcons, appear in the novelization of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, including:

  • In the chapter 1, John Connor says that he was attacked by the T-1000 when he was 13 years old. This is an inconsistency. In Terminator 2: Judgment Day, John Connor was only 10 years old as shown on the police computer when the T-1000 accesses it.
  • John Connor stated that the T-1000 tried to kill him 12 years ago. Additionally, John mentioned that 12 years ago, he and Kate had made out in Mike Kripke's basement the day before he met the T-800. Since the T3 novel takes place in 2003, this would put the T2 event in 1991 and make John's date of birth in circa 1978.
