Hope Of The Future
Bits & Bytes


"You stay down by day, but at night you can move around. The H-K's use infra-red, so you still have to watch out."


"Hunter-Killers. Patrol machines. Built in automated factories. Most of us were rounded up, put in camps... for orderly disposal. Some of us were kept alive... to work. Loading bodies. The disposal units ran night and day. We were that close to going out forever..."

The battle for the future has begun!

Terminator 4 Poster Kyle Reese, Sarahís protector in the first movie, showed us a glimpse of a post-apocalyptic future. He told about a war, and about a man that would become the leader of the Human Resistance in a fight against SKYNET, a super computersystem that launched a global nuclear attack on mankind.

A dark story, written in the style of the original Terminator movie, tells about life during the future war. The Human Resistance, under the leadership of John Connor, fights back against the deadly machines of SKYNET.

As the Resistance finds a possible way to stop SKYNET, some unexpected things happen. The Resistance must fight for what itís worth to retrieve back the earth that was once theirs.

As a big Terminator fan, I have created my own fourth story of the Terminator saga and wrote it down in my fanscript. I started almost immediately after seeing T3 in the theatres.

A few notes before reading;
- Thereís a lot of debate going on about the date of T2. Did it happen in 1994 or in 1995? In my script I have used the year 1994.
- Another thing is the date of Judgment Day in T3. I have used the date July 25th 2004.

I want to thank Arnoud Engelfried for the help with the copyright.
