Notes from the Terminator chronology


This story takes place during the future war in 2029 in the Salvation timeline.


Didja Notice?


2029: On page 4, John tells Marcus that if the plan fails, to get his wife and son to safety. The son referred to must be the child with which Kate was pregnant in 2018 in Salvation. In Timeline ROTM-3, John and Kate have three children by 2029, according to Terminator Dreams and Terminator Hunt, with the only one named being a daughter, Kyla.


2029: On page 5, Dr. Kogan says, "I'll be back."


2029: On page 8, Marcus appears to be carrying an M4A1 Carbine with attached M26 MASS. This is the same combination weapon John carried during his battle with the Model 101 near the end of Salvation.


2029: On page 10, a Resistance soldier uses an unidentified type of shoulder-mounted quad rocket launcher. It's similar, but more high-tech looking, to the M202A1 FLASH used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1985 film Commando.

2029: After busting into the Skynet compound and spiriting away Dr. Kogan, Marcus' Resistance squad leaves a battered female corpse from the battlefield dressed in Kogan's clothes for Parnell to find to trick him into thinking she's been killed. But then the real Dr. Kogan is seen wearing nearly identical clothing still when she is brought before John! Where did they get the identical clothes for the corpse? I guess they found her closet (full of identical sets of clothes)!
