John Connor, the leader of the human rebels against Skynet, devises a plan to assault Skynet but decides not to participate in it, preferring instead to prevent Skynet from carrying out its contingency plan, which is to dispatch a terminator to kill Sarah Connor, the woman who would give birth to John. But when he fails, he sends his right hand, Kyle Reese, who will sire him, to defend Sarah. As Reese is departing, he notices John being attacked by one of Skynet’s soldiers. When Reese arrives, he discovers a terminator that is unlike any he has seen before. Sarah, who understands who he is and why he is there, saves him. He also realizes she is carrying a terminator. She tells him that the terminator he met was sent to murder her when she was nine years old, and that the terminator, along with her, was sent to save her and has been her companion and protector ever since. They intercepted the terminator he was following and want to use its chip to trigger a time machine they developed to travel to 1997, when Skynet was launched, but Reese insists they should proceed to 2017. He claims that a voice or memory tells him to remember the date because that is when they will be able to stop Skynet. So Sarah and Reese leave, while the terminator stays behind and promises to meet them when they arrive, but they are detained and someone unexpected appears.
