In the year 2029, humanity dangles on the brink of extinction at the hands of Skynet, an artificial intelligence determined to destroy the human race. Scattered throughout the ravaged streets of Los Angeles, ragged bands of men and women struggle for their lives against Skynet's mechanized forces. This embittered war for survival has finally reached the breaking point. Deadly robots masked by human skin called Terminators have begun to infiltrate the scattered human encampments with devastating results.
Humanity's last best chance for survival rests in the hands of Tech Com, a highly organized group of resistance fighters led by John Connor. Recognizing Tech Com's strength, Skynet initiates an evil plan to erase John Connor from history and break the spirit of the human resistance once and for all. Fortunately, Connor discovers Skynet's deadly plot to travel through time and murder his mother, Sarah. Working together through a series of complex and dangerous missions, Connor and his army battle to overthrow Skynet, accesses the time travel facility and send one lone protector back into the past to stop the Terminator and save Sarah Connor's life.
