  • Q: If Skynet's mission was to preserve Skynet's creation in 1997, and had the T-1000/Karyn Stern looking for an intact T-800, why did they not use one of the two T-800 they sent back this time?
    • A: Partly answered. The mission of the three was to preserve Skynet's creation, however, they also have a mission to kill John Connor which has a higher priority than the first one. Instead of preserving Skynet, the two T-800 went looking for John Connor.
