Continuity notes[]

  • The first half of the story is chronicled in Cybernetic Dawn.
  • The second half of the story Nuclear Twilight is set in the year 2029 and features the events that will ultimately lead to John Connor sending Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor from an assassin Terminator (the events in The Terminator). John also finds and reprograms a T-800 to send back to help his younger self and Sarah Connor, setting into motion the events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.


  • During the story, the Resistance experienced four power dips, which are linked to Skynet’s attempt to send Terminators back in time. We know they send back a T-800 in attempt to kill Sarah Connor in 1984[1]. Later, Skynet sends back a T-1000 to kill the young John Connor as seen inTerminator 2: Judgment Day. Skynet also sent back Three Terminators: one T-1000 and two T-800s to preserve Skynet's creation as seen in Cybernetic Dawn. The fourth attempt is unknown, but we also know that Skynet previously experimented by sending several Terminators to the past as seen in "Genesis and Revelations". One of the four could be a part of this.
