Notes from the Terminator chronology


This story takes place in 1985.


Didja Notice?


On page 1, Farrow and the Terminator are driving an SUV north on Interstate 81, north of Binghamton, NY. Interstate 81 is a real world highway that has its southern end in Binghamton. I can't quite tell if the SUV is a Ford Explorer or a GMC almost seems to have aspects of each from models circa 1985. The emblem on the front grill looks similar to the Ford emblem, but instead reads "Barts" or "Borts"; I'm unaware of the significance of it.


On page 3, Farrow asks the Terminator if he knows about activities of the CIA and he responds, "I have detailed files." The protector T-800 in Judgment Day also used this phrase to explain he had detailed files on human anatomy.


The Rothlake mercenaries in this issue appear to be carrying M16 machine guns. The Terminator and Farrow also wield them in this issue, stolen from Rothlake personnel.


After the Terminator bursts into the Rothlake compound in a Jeep on page 8, a call goes out to the personnel about the perimeter breach, telling all units to engage a target driving a Rothlake Victor. I'm not sure what is meant by "Victor"; possibly it is military slang or a nickname for a Jeep, but I've been unable to substantiate it.


The following issue, "Enemy of my Enemy" Part 5, reveals that the Rothlake compound is the one located in Ithaca, NY, mentioned in "Enemy of my Enemy" Part 2.


In this issue, we see that Rothlake is already working on prototype Terminators in 1985.
