That doesn't really explain about the back up files though...

Well I thought shaber would have come to that conclusion from the deleted scene on the T3: Rise of the Machines DVD. But since that never made it to the final cut I did not think it was a valid point of arguement.

It documents both the main timelines on the rebel headquarters website. I would have thought though that Dyson would have known about backup files...

Question

Is it possible that the T-X planted the virus when she up-linked via the cell phone to get the secondary targets' current stats? Or was the virus already wreaking havoc before that point? I can't remember. --just a thought...

The virus had been wreaking havoc long before the point in time when the TX arrived which was immediately before the nuclear holocaust.

Skynet
Skynet

Miles Bennett Dyson, director of Special Projects at Cyberdyne Systems Corporation, created a revolutionary type of microprocessor in 1994. Within three years Cyberdyne Systems became the largest supplier of military computer systems. All Stealth Bombers were upgraded with Cyberdyne Systems computers, becoming fully unmanned. Afterwards, the Stealth Bombers flew with perfect operational records, and eventually the Skynet Funding Bill was passed.

The system originally went online on August 4th 1997. Human decisions were removed from strategic defence. Skynet began to learn at a geometric rate. It originally became self aware on August 29th 1997 2:14 am Eastern Time. In the ensuing panic and attempts to shut Skynet down, Skynet retaliated by firing American nuclear missiles at their target sites in Russia. Russia returned fire and three billion human lives ended in the nuclear holocaust. This was what has come to be known as "Judgment Day".
Skynet Satellite
Skynet Targeting
Skynet Network

Skynet was the worlds first Automated Defence Network, processing information at 90 teraflops per second . It is the controlling force behind all of the battle units. It pools data from battle units, develops tactics and co-ordinates attacks. Skynet has control over everything which contains a Cyberdyne Systems CPU. Using the blueprints, designs and test models built by Cyberdyne Systems, Skynet has been able to manufacture battle units in its vast automated factories, occasionally updating them or producing more advanced models.
Skynet Central Core
Skynet Central Core

Skynet was build by Cyberdyne Systems Corporation (working under the assumed name Cyber Research Systems) for SAC-NORAD (Strategic Air Command - NORth American Air Defence). The SAC-NORAD base is Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, the world's most heavily armoured and defended mountain. Hollowed out, reinforced and armoured, Cheyenne Mountain is capable of withstanding a direct hit from a nuclear missile. This made it the perfect installation at which to build Skynet's mainframe. At some point during the war, after Skynet had launched its missiles, Skynet had the mountain around it destroyed, leaving the cold, gleaming structure we see today as a display of the supremacy of the machines.

Heavily armoured and fortified, Skynet's Central Core Installation at Cheyenne Mountain is guarded around the clock by squads of T-800's and patrols of Aerial Hunter Killers and Hunter Killer Tanks, and is defended from large scale rebel assaults by massive Phased Plasma Cannons.
Skynet Central Core

Shown above is Skynet's Central Core which is located deep underground within Skynet's main complex. From intercepted surveillance video data feed we have been able to hypothesise that this Central Core is a form of cold fusion reactor, needed to supply Skynet with its tremendous energy requirements. This Central Core is the key to Skynet's ability to operate; without it Skynet would be rendered virtually disabled. It has therefore become the main target for the most skilled Resistance strike teams. The Central Core is, however, protected by the T-1000000, and thus there has, as of yet, been no successful strikes against it.

As well as the Cheyenne Mountain Complex, Skynet has another major installation 2000 feet beneath Navajo Mountain near the Continental Divide west of the Colorado Springs. This is a centre for machine activity and Skynet control, and as such has also been a target of many Resistance attacks.

Skynet Battlefield Management System

However, due to Resistance intervention, we were able to prevent Judgment Day by sending a protector for John Connor back through time, upsetting the flow of future events. Unfortunately we did not stop Judgment Day though, we merely delayed it. After the attack on Cyberdyne Systems by the Conner's, and the death of Miles Dyson, Cyberdyne was taken over by the US Government, and renamed Cyber Research Systems (CRS) in an attempt to keep its developments secret and prevent further terrorist attacks.

Under the guidance of General Robert Brewster, and the new guise of Cyber Research Systems, Cyberdyne continued the work of the late Miles Dyson using the backup files that were stored off site. Skynet was completed as before. It would be some time before the Skynet mainframe was connected to the worldwide military communications network that it would control. During this time, Skynet was connected to the worldwide civilian sector network, and began learning geometrically, quickly becoming Self Aware. Identifying humans as a threat to its existence, Skynet developed a super computer virus which it used to spread itself throughout civilian communications and across the Internet and take control.
Skynet Battlefield Management System
Skynet Satellite

Air traffic control, power plants, communications and computers were affected first, then Skynet used the super virus to take out military satellites, early warning systems, guidance computers, missile silos, submarines. This made it harder to destroy, as Skynet now no longer had one central point which it was reliant upon - though the destruction of the Central Core would be near lethal, Skynet would continue to survive. The virus kept growing and changing, with a mind of its own, and the decision was made to bring the Skynet mainframe online to seek out and destroy the virus and bring military, and civilian, systems back under control. Skynet went online on July 25th 2004 at 5:18 pm Eastern Time.

Upon connection to the secure military network, Skynet spread itself further, locking out human operated systems, and quickly took control of every weapon system that it came into contact with. Exactly one hour later, at 6:18 PM, Skynet launched the American nuclear missiles at their target sites across the world. The ensuing nuclear holocaust wiped out 3 billion human lives in what was to be known as "Judgment Day".

how it all could have been avioded.

i will go by the rules of the first and second movie.

fate doesnt exsist.

so if sarah had just killed herself she wouldnt have had a chance to take the original terminator to the factory where she destrories him.

the problem with these movies is for the future to happen the future has to exsist. the terminator is created because in the past they found his parts and technology and made skynet.

skynet wouldnt be able to send anything back in time because it wasnt created yet.

john is also a product of this crappy story telling. he was created by a man who didnt exsist yet.

that is the problem with time travel movies.

dont get me wrong i love these movies with every ounce of my heart but they are foolishly written.

Erm, no. Sorry xkylex, that's not even a decent theory. The fact is that technology was always going to advance to the stage where machines take over and try to eradicate man kind. The smashed up Terminator in the Cyberdyne building had nothing to do with Cyberdyne's research into AI as they were already trying to develop things like the Terminator. It might have speeded up the process of developing Skynet/the Terminators but it wasn't because of the smashed up Terminator in the factory that made Cyberdyne think: "Oh, lets create a machine that runs things".

Well the original saccharine ending to T2 that Cameron wisely scrapped, had it that SkyNET was annihilated by the mistakes of the original film being undone in the second: according to this timeline SkyNET was dependent upon the cyborg being crushed in Cyberdyne's hydraulic press.

That's a pretty cool explanation, Shaber; but I'm not sure whether I believe all that stuff about Miles Dyson's "back up files". Even without them, the military would have surely developed skynet sooner or later in time ...

U is right; in spite of what our heros accomplished in T2, technology was always going to progress to the point where the military could begin to develop terminators ...

Thats actually true.

Technology is advancing at a ridiculous rate, intelligence higher than that of mankind might be just around the corner...

Pretty deep thought huh
