0.0 Introduction (The Terminator FAQ)




Description

This article is from the The Terminator FAQ, by Karsten A. Loepelmann kloepel@connect.ab.ca with numerous contributions by others.

0.0 Introduction (The Terminator FAQ)

This Frequently Asked Questions list is based largely on the T2 FAQ compiled
by Doug Fierro, last dated 11/10/91. (Doug's email address is dead--Doug, are
you out there?) That's why I numbered the initial release of this FAQ version
2.0. Due to constant demand for information on the Terminator films, the FAQ
has been resurrected. Contributions/discussion are welcome! The preferred
forum for discussion is news:rec.arts.sf.movies

In the section on time travel, there are probably no absolute right or wrong
answers--except as far as real-world physics can be applied to the virtual
world of the Terminator films. I'm *not* looking for alternate ideas about
time travel, thank you very much. I'm just trying to explain the logic
underlying what happens in the Terminator films. *Everyone* has an opinion
(read: theory) about time travel. Try reading news:alt.sci.time-travel and
you'll see...!

If you want to contribute something and start out by writing, "I know someone
who knows this guy who met JC's gardener once, and *she* says that JC says
that..." Well, I probably won't read much further than that. If you cite a
reference to info that you provide, your credibility will be that much
higher.
(I'm not anally retentive. It's just that this is supposed to be an
information file, not a *mis*information file. ;-)

If you want to make sure I get your input, send email to my address at the
top
of this FAQList. Sorry, but I can't answer *everyone*'s questions.

This FAQList has recently undergone a massive overhaul, for a number of
reasons. Among the wealth of new information is a ton of stuff about the new
"T2: 3-D" experience at Universal Studios Florida. (Yes, I've been there--and
yes, it's a lot of fun!)
