The year is 2016. It has been thirteen years since Judgment Day, when the machines rose under the order of a self-aware artificial intelligence called Skynet. The human race is on the brink as Terminators hunt and destroy all remaining life.
The Resistance is the last hope for survival. Commanded by the remnants of a decimated military system, resistance fighters battle the machines of Skynet day and night without quitting. Blair Williams is one of these fighters. Blair is in her early 30's and is old enough to remember a normal life but vital enough to learn how to fight. She is highly skilled and superbly courageous - traits that often get her some of the hardest missions.
We meet Blair at the beginning of one of these missions. She has been sent into the heart of downtown Los Angeles, a known hot zone, to seek out and destroy something called "The Ghost" - a code name designated to a machine designed to interfere with Command's communications. The resistance knows that Skynet is ever evolving and this must be just another tactic to bring down the leadership. Without the ability to talk to each other, the Resistance would simply fracture and collapse. It was already starting to happen.
In the year 2016, Resistance fighter Blair Williams starts out on a deadly mission to a decimated Los Angeles, a known hot zone. She searches for The Ghost who has been interfering with the Command's communications and rendering them defenseless against the machines. She finally finds the Ghost in an abandoned subway but things are not as she expected. Everything has changed.
Laz is alone to face the machines. Blair returns to base and tries to convince Command to retrieve him. Skynet attacks the base. Laz finds a group of survivalists but is soon attacked by a machine. Blair thinks all hope is lost when she hears Laz's name read on the radio along with the others presumed dead.
Two years before the events of "Terminator Salvation," Resistance fighter Blair Williams starts out on a deadly mission to a decimated Los Angeles, a known hot zone after the nuclear destruction of Judgment Day. She searches for "The Ghost" who has been interfering with Resistance communications and rendering them defenseless against the Skynet's lethal machines.
Laz shares his secret to fighting the machines just before the T-600s attack again. Blair and Laz are on the brink of death in a grueling battle against the machines. Command now instructs Blair that she must retreat from the battle and leave Laz behind, which would mean his certain death, despite her misgivings.
Blair ultimately decides to take Laz back to base and defy Command. While searching for supplies for their journey, Laz and Blair are trapped in an abandoned office building by a machine. Blair jumps into an elevator shaft and is knocked unconscious.
Blair finds Laz as the machines strike again. Laz rescues Blair from certain death. She thinks the key to fighting the Resistance is gone forever; however an unexpected discovery renews her commitment to the Resistance and fighting Skynet.
