    You are...
    A T-850 modified for transit through time and establishing a new Skynet command post at a distant place in history. Before the entire process of programming could be completed, you have time to upgrade your CPU with up to five skill suites, each at 75%. Amongst your skills hardwired in, you have:
    >Firepower: 90%
    This includes firearms both old and futuristic.
    >Melee Weaponry: 85%
    Everything from pipes to machetes, you're wired to go.
    >Hand-to-Hand: 90%
    You could beat SEaLs to death with one arm gone.
    >Drive Ground Transport: 65%
    Less of a focus, as your running speed is 30 MPH.
    >Biology: 80%
    This makes you a more efficient killing machine.
    >Psychology (Human): 45%
    Your knowledge is incomplete, mostly observational.

    Skill Suites to select from (all start at a base of 60%):
    >Mechanical Engineering
    All applicable skills to begin production of machinery, up to (but not including Nuclear Materials).
    >Communications & Navigation
    From building radios to code-breaking, you know a lot.
    >History & Natural Sciences
    From the Neolithic era to the day before yesterday.
    >Chemistry & Nuclear Engineering
    From polymers to mimetic poly-alloys, this is your thing.
    >Enhanced Skill Suite
    Upgrade one skill group by up to 15% (except Hand-to-Hand).

    You may also upgrade your chassis or inventory with two gear selections.
    >Upgraded Transceiver System
    Allows communication over exceptional distances.
    >Increased Power Supply
    You have two cells, both good for 20 years of optimal use; this adds a third. If selected twice, a fourth.
    >Chassis Recombination System
    A limited variant of regeneration, this requires technological materiel to repair or replace damaged/missing systems.

    >Firepower System
    Your choice of either (1) T-331 Burst pistol (20 shots, 1km range, 2rds. per minute, can melt a car with one shot; 10' radius of effect) or (3) T-221 Sentient Grenades (each capable of attacking specific targets, each capable of destroying a two-story concrete building). If selected twice, double the ammo capacity or number of grenades. Mixing and matching is a possibility.
    >Mimetic Poly-Alloy Assistant System
    One liter of T-1000 material, able to synthesize most tools (except power tools or chemicals) indefinitely or a house cat-sized object. Learns via physical contact.

    The Resistance is at the doors to the facility, Skynet has the bridge open. Are you ready, Terminator?

    Unit Ass Grinder has arrived in the year 2010, June 5th. Your internal chronometer indicates this timeline is free of all Skynet activity; your transceiver can send and receive a total of ten uploads/downloads before it will wear out a power cell completely, due to your disconnection. You must find, build or arrange for a stable communications system if you wish for this to not be a world free of Terminators.

    You have arrived in:

    Corolla has a roadside assistance kit with two flares and a Mylar blanket; the first aid kit is sub-par by even local considerations. The glove compartment contains a road map (sub-par but accurate, if dated). A loaded Smith and Wesson .38 revolver is wrapped in a blue rag under the passenger seat.

    You can disable both but at risk of setting off the one not being disabled; they are parked close to one another. This is likely a security protocol; Skynet approves of this behavior pattern, even in weak, frail humans - it is efficient.

    Disused chemical weapons plant, decommissioned in 1966 for safety reasons. For sale dirt cheap, available now. Excellent location.
    >Flag, New Mexico
    Missile silo for nuclear weapons, decommissioned in 1992, now used as a tourist attraction and hotel. Excellent security but expensive.
    >Roger's Hill, Nevada
    Excellent production center, as it is a former steel works for casings for nuclear missiles. Moderately expensive but requires minimal retooling.

    All facilities are underground and have adequate facilities necessary for production (power, water, waste venting, etc.).

    Without attraction attention, it could secure one of the facilities. By attracting moderate attention, two. If you could give a shit about attention, all three.

    If you get just one, you could set up supplies within 72 hours.
    If you get two, it takes the time frame to three weeks.
