Notes from the Terminator chronology


This story takes place over roughly the same time period as the events of The Terminator in 1984.


Didja Know?


Terminator: Sector War was a 4-issue mini-series published by Dark Horse Comics in 2018-2019.


Characters appearing or mentioned in this issue



Ramon "Papa" Oso

Officer Lucy Castro

John Connor (mentioned only) 


Didja Notice?


On pages 2-3, we see that the place Papa Oso's gang takes Castro to has "oso" graffiti and bear-face scrawls nearby. Oso is Spanish for "bear".


On page 4, Fordham Road is mentioned as the site where a dozen dead bodies were found. Fordham Road is a major thoroughfare of the Bronx.


On page 13, Castro ignites packages of C-4 explosive rigged on the wall where the Terminator enters the room. C-4 is a type of plastic explosive, Composition C-4.


On page 15, the Terminator tells Castro her daughter, along with John Connor, will lead a successful operation against critical Skynet defenses in the year 2029. This is somewhat similar to the scenario described in Rise of the Machines, with Kate Brewster at John's side in the year 2032. It seems though that Lucy's daughter is a different person, as Kate's father was General Robert Brewster, not the "Will" person seen in "Sector War" Part 1.
