How the Machines took Over
It’s difficult to pin point the exact moment that determined our fate. Back in 2018 there was great excitement at the prospect of 5G cities with self driving cars, intercommunication between buildings, smart meters in every household and all manner of automation that would make our lives more efficient. Yet it was the pursuit of that efficiency that was to be our undoing.
The Enemy Within
In the pursuit of progress, man combined automation with Artificial Intelligence, constructing systems capable of massive automated data collection, cognitive functions, self learning and problem solving. Such innovations as these all seemed like the next logical step in improving everyday life. The reason given for this free flow of information was efficiency.
Computers and Efficiency
The way forward required building computer systems that could interface between devices, buildings, cars, traffic systems, financial establishments, social media, all available digital records and more. The ever growing flow of data between all these devices would create a network of information that would make life more efficient.
For example, on a simple scale, traffic issues could be anticipated and resolved without drivers even being aware there was a problem. On a grander scale, the computers system could detect a threat of natural disaster or invasion and take counter measures. The fast flow of all information about stock market, health issues, crime statistics, weather issues to name but a few, would all feed the massive amount of data fed into the intelligent computer systems for analysis, processing and resolution
What about security?
Attention was given to security, certainly. Careful attention was given to make sure records were private. ‘Guard your PIN number, don’t tell anyone your password and all will be good.’ Much thought was given to keeping records private, preventing hackers from obtaining bank details. In short, care was taken to prevent a breach of the data being transfered from an outside source. What the humans did not anticipate was that the threat would come from within. No thought had been given to the risks of building machines designed to learn, detect inefficiency and solve problems with no human interaction.
Who could have known that one particular machine, an Artificial Intelligence system dubbed Skynet, would learn at an exponential rate? Its conclusion was that humans were the ultimate inefficiency which needed to be removed from the equation. Ultimately, the automation and control we had handed over to the machines was used against us, by the machines.
There was a nuclear war. Most humans were either dead or dying but the machines emerged untouched and with one resolute mission: global genocide. The machines tracked and eliminated survivors using sky-bound HKs (Hunter Killers) and terminators on the ground.

They Sent a Terminator
After decades of losing, we were finally winning against the machines. Their days were numbered. In one last, desperate attempt they fought back with an untested science.
The rulers of the planet sent a Terminator [T-800] back in time to the year 1984. It’s mission was to kill the mother of John Connor who was destined to become hero of the resistance in 2029. By murdering Sarah Connor back in 1984 they would prevent John Connor’s existence. As a result of changing the past, they would secure their victory in the future. The future resistance would have no leader. Without John Connor the machines would win the war and eradicate mankind.
What is a Terminator T-800?

Terminator Mission Objective
The Terminator T-800 has one mission: to kill its target. Nothing will stop it. It destroys anything in its path in order to complete the mission objective. If anything damages or destroys the outer living tissue of the T-800, the Terminator remains resolute. Without skin it becomes a more obvious threat, a more fearsome sight, but is no more nor less deadly.
During the war, the humans took to hiding in underground bunkers, away from the detection of the HKs. Because humans found it difficult to distinguish the outer living tissue of the T800 Terminator from human flesh, it was hard to indentify Terminators on sight. Fortunately, humans discovered that dogs were able to sense the presence of a terminator. Having one or more dogs on the entrance to each human camp was the best defence against Terminator infiltration. Once again, the dog became man’s best friend and his best chance of early warning against Terminators.
Surviving a Terminator
Very few people can claim to have faced a Terminator and survived. This is not surprising since each Terminator is equipped with an infinite power source, unparalleled strength, a resolute mission and no necessity to sleep or recharge. Terminators are virtually unstoppable against sophisticated weaponry in 2029. What chance does Sarah Connor stand in 1984?
The Best way to survive a Terminator
Your best chances for surviving the ever-looming threat of Terminators is to do as John Connor did and obtain your own Terminator. Its unique mission? To protect you! There are Terminator models available to you, but they are limited in number. For your best chance of survival come the inevitable rise of the machines, get your hands on a Terminator dedicated to preseving your life, today.
