Terminator Salvation

In the Terminator Salvation novel as well as the film, John Connor's team is referred to as a "Tech-com unit" which is tasked with intercepting and interpreting Skynet's signals to the Hunter Killers and Terminators in hopes of finding weaknesses, and finding back doors into restricted files, as well as fighting the machines directly. This unit intercepted plans and diagrams depicting the new model Terminator, the T-800, following a (mostly) successful strike on an underground Skynet bunker in 2018.

  • The term "Tech-Com" was not used in James Cameron's original script treatment.[1]However, it appeared in the final script. Reese's ident at the start of The Terminator is the only onscreen mention of the term "Tech-Com" until Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Terminator Salvation, in which it was clarified to be a specific unit of the Resistance under Connor's supervision; however, in the Terminator ancillary material, such as video games, novels, and comic books, "Tech-Com" is often used as the name for the entire human Resistance against Skynet and the Machines.
