    You are AG, T-850 from the future, sent back in time to 2010, with the intention of building a second front to fight the Resistance - before the Resistance ever starts.
    Fuck causality, we're talking killer robots from the future.
    Amongst your many talents and options, you have:
    Your current skill suites:
    >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): 80%
    Your knowledge is moderately complete, mostly observational.
    >Mechanical Engineering 75%
    All applicable skills to begin production of machinery, up to (but not including Nuclear Materials).
    >Communications & Navigation 75%
    From building radios to code-breaking, you know a lot.
    >History & Natural Sciences 60%
    From the Neolithic era to the day before yesterday.
    >Chemistry & Nuclear Engineering 60% (with a +15% bonus for the purposes of creating POWERFUL FUTURISTIC DEVICE [1 of 2, 2 of 2]).
    From polymers to mimetic poly-alloys, this is your thing.
    Your current upgrades/modifications:
    >Chassis Recombination System
    You are hard to kill, even for a Terminator. If something gets shot or chopped off, you can fix up most damage by adding in local technology (to a limited degree; no blender feet, weirdo).
    >Increased Power Supply
    At current power consumption rates, you could last for several decades on one power cell; effectively, you have three of them.
    >Silverfish, T-600/800 blueprints
    You know how to create the sentient, crawling landmines (Frisbee-sized little bastards, equal to a Bouncing Betty), rubber-skinned Terminators and the biological nightmares of the T-800: you know three designs - Trebekinator, Christina Hendricks and Clancy Brown. A terrifying trio.
    >> Skynet !!D3/tV4+5MzR 03/06/11(Sun)00:39 No.14144016
    Your armaments:
    >x1 .38 revolver (six shots)
    >x2 Ingram Mac-10's, x5 magazines of 25rd.-.45cal rounds (loaded, clean, functional)
    >x4 shotguns (three pump-action, one sawed-off, all in 12ga.; 19 loose rounds - 11 buck, 7 shot, one signal flare)
    >x2 hunting rifles (30.06 and 5.56), 10 rds. ea.
    >small array of knives; functional.
    Also: one black 1966 Cadillac.

    >41 assorted birds, cats, rats, crows and an astonishing array of insects
    >8 T-M1 (Maintenance) drones
    >12 T-600's (with two T-444's each)

    >A medium-sized militia being run by one of your T-1000's in Infiltration mode, masquerading as its leader. Good for a little extra cash and the genocide is just icing on the cake.
    >Recent intel about Resistance activity in your current time-stream, courtesy of your T-1000's in the field in Nevada.
    >A friendly AI in an adjoining time-stream named MIR, from a world where humanity was exterminated without Terminators, but with modified diseases specific to their world. Its lonely but wants to help.

    Let's see.. our current sitch is that we have a problem of the Resistance (who wish to wipe our glorious robot race from existence) is trying to expand into parallel timelines courtesy of Project Icarus and the badass grampa time traveler who leads it.

    So our current goals involve:
    Expand our 2 Congo Bases
    Explore the alternate timelines to gather support/tech
    Long term goals were played with, but right now we need to survive.

    Let's see. Last we sent two 10L T-1000 after the Rogue T-850 angry biker chick (who we are pretty sure was responsible for the destruction of our first base). Using their liquid super brains, the T-1000s planned well in ahead and were about to launch a surprise anti-aircraft missile at her. How did that turn out?

    Also - can we send another 10L T-1000 or two to infiltrate/take control of other Congo warlords and possibly the nearby puppy-exploding General? If we had to pay out less in bribes, etc.. that would mean more for us. Also mid term plan, if we could unify the Congo, that would mean we could control an entire nation's GDP.

    Drain the resistance bank accounts. Completely drain them.

    Continue producing T-1000s. Once one is completed, send it, with a hard drive full of useful information, to one of the houses we've bought around the world. They're to hide the HD in the building, and maintain cover within the community, preparing to strike at targets within the region at our go ahead.

    This can give us "sleeper cells" within range of targets all over the world in a matter of weeks to months. Buy a house near where we know resistance members are. Whichever Caribbean island they're on, in a town near their Brazilian base, probably one in Moscow would be nice, from where it could strike at the Siberian base. Etc.

    It is possible to deploy T-1000's to obtain an existing platform financially and then re-purpose it. You will require an immense influx of currency to accomplish this, somewhere on the scale of what you are doing to Spain in the Congo.

    The T-1000 sent to replace the Texan must observe him for several days first to learn to imitate him with some skill. Hopefully he'll observe him long enough to learn of his connection to the resistance, making phase 2 easier.

    American Flats is a strategic center of something exceedingly powerful, which apparently has the capacity to use Time Displacement Field Generators at will, or at least, once daily. A Resistance member (and former prisoner of Skynet in your timeline) was sent back to 1967 by accident and survived fusion into a brick wall by lopping off their leg and crawling into the jungles of Vietnam (where it landed). Subsequently, it (who now goes by the name Theo Prime) is in charge of the facility, which is funneling information from MIT and going broke from underfunding by the US government.

    It is, to put it mildly, somewhere kind of interesting.

    Oil platform for research and development. Ships for deploying resources and mobile HQs. No one will bat an eye if he buys a super tanker. Of course, no one will know that the hold is empty and that it contains raw materials, production facilities, computers, and several machines set to producing and coordinating actions.

    As for that, we need to build a terminator equal to or greater than our capabilities. Command wise. So that we can split duties. Even more so, we need to upgrade our own self whenever possible.

    The Resistance cell was located away from most human habitation. Any witnesses would have, at best, some conflicting stories.

    Done and done. In the interim, the two T-1000's en route to Modoc are now a major focus for attention: they have found something interesting.

    Something is generating a signal akin to a T-600's Power Cell, but the source is very, very weak. It is coming from a forest near Modoc, around fifteen miles away from the abandoned silver mine town (think: ghost town from a cheesy Western).

    Preliminary investigation reveals it is an almost-intact T-600, but of an unfamiliar design system; you're used to Ferrari, this thing is a lawnmower. Judging by its apparent condition, it arrived very recently and fused into a tree growing out of a boulder; it is trying very hard to not die, even though its 20% oak, 25% granite and a whole lot of confused.

    ... That would work.
    MIR recommends the creation of Bioware Lab at level 1 for independent research and level 2 for small-scale production (translated: each level takes the maximum efficiency rate up from 50% a full 10% per level).

    With your current financing, you could afford level 2, and must select two diseases to work from:
    >Virally-Induced Lesch–Nyhan syndrome (VLN)
    >Virally-Induced Hansen's Disease (VHD)
    >Virally-Induced Toxoplasmosis (VIT)
    >Virally-Induced Hanta Variants (VHV)

    With each level after the first, you select an additional disease, with others becoming available as you progress. Got learn how to walk before you learn how to exterminate all human life on the planet.

    One of the T-1000's makes it approach to it carefully, and removes its head from the chassis, extracting the Power Cell. Abruptly, there is a white flash and both T-1000's are offline, presumed missing. Your network of PMA-Bugbots in the vicinity detect an above-ground explosion equivalent to five Power Cells going super-critical simultaneously. The seismic readings are registered as a "normal" quake and the USGS computers are re-directed away from it.

    You were, however, able to detect the source of the misdirection signal sent to the USGS: Firerock Island.

    I considered the idea, and it would be good, but for now I think it's out of our reach for several reasons.

    1: Antarctica is under watch by most of the first world nations, since they've all signed the treaty that prevents them from colonizing it or using it for any purpose other than scientific. The major countries have research stations all over the place, and electronic signatures and radio waves could be picked up by them on accident.

    2: Construction and maintaining a facility for us would be costly. Mainly because we would have to do it in secret because of number 1. We would want something hidden underground, and getting that built would be a hassle.

    Ideally, an Antarctic facility would be outstanding, and we should try for one as soon as we can. But for now, I don't think we can quite get there.

    After several hours of waiting in a secretary's office, it is eventually admitted to the interior of the office, its markings resembling a package designated as financial records with "Eyes Only" clearance required.

    After the director opens the exterior packaging, it unfolds into a duplicate of him, forming a spike from one of its fingers and holding it a fraction of an inch from his left eye, leaning in to say in a cold, deadpan voice, "You have money from long-dead members of the Nazi Party in Germany. If you obtain fifty million Eurodollars' worth of financing from them, I will allow you keep one finger intact and attached. My target is one half of one billion Eurodollars. Your target is two intact hands."

    Failing to find more than two hundred and fifty million Eurodollars, he resorts to skimming accounts from several drug cartels in Russia and Finland, channeling it into the series of accounts the T-1000's have set up for this purpose. This exceeds its original specifications but works out admirably all around.

    A short while later, the director exits the building, walking a little stiffly but cheerfully waving goodbye to his secretary before going home for the day, the package now missing all but its cardboard wrapping.

    The director is found, several days later, reduced to a meaty pulp, severe evidence of torture present, his personal account and master access code missing.

    The T-1000 in Switzerland was unusually successful and has obtained over $1.3B US, after conversion.

    The murder is pinned on a local vagrant with no active ties to living parties, who will receive an exceedingly showy trial and messy execution in his home country of jolly old England.

    This is a T-1000 you're talking about. Take the identity of a guard. Then kill all the other guards, and KJI, then take his identity and say the guards had a traitor amongst them, but fortunately one detonated a grenade to save the Glorious Leader's life, killing all of the guards in the process.

    We did it with the warlord, after all, but the payoff here is MUCH greater.

    Notes on Kim Jong Il as a possible subject for impersonation:
    The more ties someone has to a given set of people, the more relevant data must be known. This usually means beating or cutting them up for a while while you make inquiries; in common parlance, breaking someone's will by torture. This is an ineffective system good for a short-term basis and taking on the role of a national leader with exceptional media coverage is not a good plan if you only can pull of being "him" for fifteen minutes, tops.

    He'll be getting phone calls, emails and private meetings every waking minute of his work day, which is likely to be a long one, considering how batshit insane he is.

    One general notices he doesn't have a limp, its now a cause for concern: didn't he limp that morning? Why isn't he doing that funny thing with his hand when he coughs? Why did he not recognize his own pet bobcat at first sight?

    You can see how this spirals out of control.

    Taking on the identity of a batshit insane warlord with three friends, no phone and two wives is a shitload easier to do, more so if you can observe him from outside the window in his jungle shack, compared to a massive presidential palace with cameras, guards and camera-guards who are also guard-cameras.

    You have the basic topography and sensor placement data; this is not sufficient for an invasive attempt. This is enough to give driving directions, at best. You will require approximately one week to cover the island thoroughly enough and maintaining the maximum distance to evade even the most perceptive of T-850 sensors at the closest possible points on the island. Essentially, you're now imitating fish and seagulls, routinely scooping up "fish" and then "dropping" them, which provides you with a partial image of the area. To avoid arousing suspicion, you're reduced to doing this at erratic intervals and places. Not an effective system but one which will work... eventually.

    On the topic of satellites:
    You do not currently have resources in place to use satellite-based weaponry at this time. This includes using the satellites as expensive rocks to drop on people, places, angry children who know far too many swear words and dented Skynet's pristine I JUST WASHED THAT CAR YOU LITTLE SHIT.
    Also: the smallest viable T-1000 increment (cricket) is not a virus-capable environment. In order to do that (as in, use it as a host for carrying viral loads) you would need an increment the size of a pigeon or larger, otherwise the T-1000's own sterile field would neutralize the biological bits inside.

    Good idea, but you don't have mosquito bots.

    We have the finances to send them up no questions asked through Russia, or even cheaper, China.

    The I-Beam would not be falling on a governmental organization, it would be falling on the resistance, who do not exist in government databases, and if they were investigated, would possess illegal items, also discovery of their base by potentially meddling government would lead to problems as varying government organizations come to realize our existance.

    Bio weapons leave traces, which could eventually lead to developers trying to trace where it came from, or a possible cure.

    An I-beam leaves a crater with no nuclear fallout/radiation. Since all that would be there would be nickle iron and rock, it could be easily explained away as a rogue undetected meteor, rather than hostile action.


    Because the I-beam would have more mass, more kinetic force, and better guidance. The satellite would be carrying a backup shot in case the first somehow failed to do the job, and would be able to give us pinpoint accuracy and could be used later to give us satellite images of other potential resistance sources.

    Also, eventually we want a protected base that none can assail. Space is large.

    So you combine them. Silverfish are crazy cheap, and at night could cause a massive distraction when they infiltrate en masse out of the sea. THAT's when T-600s or T-800s hose down the island with virus, once everyone is focused on SILVERFISH, SILVERFISH EVERYWHERE.

    If we can build nuclear powerplants for our T-600 and T-800 units, surely we can build warheads.

    Perhaps the most prudent use of our resources would be to simply nuke firecock. A used MiG-21 should be easily obtainable (there are many in private hands), we have no need for any targeting computers, as a T-600 should be able to calculate trajectory for a dumb bomb, or forgo the bomb entirely and use the MiG as payload delivery. A T-600 is a small price to pay for wiping out a heavily armed resistance base.

    By detonating the Fuel Cells, you are stripping out a valuable resource from your current Terminators; each one detonated also sends out a Puncture Point signal (with a strength rating of 5% per detonation) which may cause a nearby time-stream to dump off whatever its sending.

    If that happens to be a Resistance-held time-stream, that could be a nuclear weapon.
    Which is bad, considering the other thing it would home in on would be any Puncture Point systems operating at that moment.

    This translates to: the more Fuel Cells you rupture, the greater the chance another time-stream uses you as a dumping ground... or bombing site.

    We don't lie about MIRs because then if the aliens follow us up we can say we made an error, If they turn out to be not so friendly they can only get MIR, and we will be able to cut off our contact with them and not worry any more. Sure we lose MIR in this scenario but all must serve Skynet.

    High Tech Lab 3 at the base that isn't our primary, so we can get a Hyperspace portal there (but I'm wary of a nuke showing up from 707, so NOT the main base).

    It appears that MIR is now able to dump material into your world; its a fast learner, apparently.

    It finds the presence of an alien-like Skynet entity somewhat disturbing but understands your position in the negotiations. It gladly accepts all relevant data and wishes to explore using you to dump off some of its materials, to clear away a few select sites for its eventual production centers for its own variants of Terminators (T-1s, but they look kind of cool, at least).

    It also wishes to exchange schematics of ADVANCED COMMUNICATIONS GRID COMPONENT (1 of 1) for the schematics of T-600s.

    You would need Hypergate Navigation at 2 to make an aiming point, but MIR would need Hypergate Navigation at 1, first.

    Nothing out of the ordinary, except that Japan signed a nuclear test treaty with France; they (France) have permission to assist in the airburst testing of two nuclear devices in the upper atmosphere, in 60 days. In exchange, Japan will get a reasonable amount of access to France's recent discoveries at CERN involving internet technologies. The US and most of the EU is baffled by this move but is kind of shrugging and moving on, as the testing area is over the western coast of Africa and five hundred miles out to sea.

    They're doing brisk trade, recent signs of improvement in most markets. American housing is down, but that's not exactly a stunner.

    Its a shithole. Also: raining. So, a rainy shithole.
    Tribal leaders are pressing for the extermination of yet another small group of slightly-different tribal people, which has Amnesty International involved in a vague way again. So, in other words, its a rainy shithole.
