For those who don’t know, the future is bleak. At least in the Terminator movie universe. In 2029 Los Angeles, the night skies are patrolled by robotic ‘orcas'(C&C reference) while humanoid robots trample the bones of the fallen in a ruined cityscape. They have one mission only, to hunt the last surviving humans in a war for survival, ruthlessly corralling and mowing down the feeble resistance.

The brave people who have risen up to face the machines live underground in squaller, like rodents in the shadows, desperately clinging to any hope of survival. But they have not given up. They are fierce and have a plan to defeat the robotic overlords. But as we all now know, the final battle for humanity will not be fought in this wasteland, it will be found in another time.
