This page is about the computer created by Andy Goode, for the episode, see Episode 103: The Turk.

SCC the turk

The first Turk.

SCC 105 new turk

The second Turk.

The Turk was a chess-playing computer created by Andy Goode.

There were two versions of the Turk. The first one was burned down by Sarah Connor. The second one was programmed by Andy Goode in a coffee shop and entered into a chess competition. The Turk 2 was stolen and Andy Goode was killed. It was obtained by a man who sold it to the Zeira Corporation. The company started to do tests on the Turk, and eventually used it as the basis for John Henry.

Notes

  • Ironically, in trying to destroy the Turk, Sarah provoked the creation of the Turk 2, a more adaptable computer that was quicker on its feet.
  • Andy describes the Turk 2 in a way that could also apply to Skynet and the Terminator AI: having a hunger for learning but not always learning the right lessons.
  • The Sarah Connor Chronicles writer Zack Stentz frequented the TerminatorFiles using an alias in honor of this device.

Quotes

Sarah: (referring to Turk 2) So is this one better or worse?
Andy: Well it's different really. More adaptable, but less predictable. Not as powerful for now, but um, it's quicker on its feet. It has a hunger for learning, but sometimes the lessons it learns...
Sarah: Sounds more human.
Andy: Well if you want an analogy, I'd say that Turk 1 had grown into a brooding teenager, and Turk 2 is still more of a precocious child.
