Sarah Connor's audio tapes are audio tapes made by Sarah Connor after her attack from a T-800 from the year 2029 in May 1984. They were for her son, John Connor, to help him prepare for the War against the Machines. She started recording them prior to November 10th, 1984.
- It is possible that Sarah Connor's monologues during Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles are from theses audio tapes.
- Linda Hamilton was specifically brought back as Sarah Connor to record audio for the tapes in Terminator Salvation, although the re-enacted speech from the ending of The Terminator was slightly altered to better fit the film.
Sarah Connor: Tape 7, November 10. Where was I? What's most difficult for me is trying to decide what to tell you and what not to. But I guess I have a while yet before you're old enough to understand these tapes. They are more for me at this point, just so I can get it straight. Should I tell you about your father? Boy, that's a tough one. Will it affect your decision to send him here, knowing that he is your father? If you don't send Kyle, you can never be. God, a person could go crazy thinking about this. I suppose I will tell you...I owe him that. Maybe it will help if you know that in the few hours we had together... we loved a lifetime's worth.
Sarah Connor: I've told you everything I know, John. Skynet is ruthless and unpredictable. They will use the best part of you against yourself, and they will use methods I can't imagine or predict, that I can't help you with. And when you're unsure, well just always follow your heart, John. I love you. Goodbye.
