    I think the plotline would only work if the Kyle Reese-led resistance is in some way ineffective. What would be the point of traveling back in time if he has nothing unique to offer the resistance (as leader)?

    A script order is always a good sign. Or are they just breaking the next season so they have something to show Fox if they are considering a renewal.

    Maybe...but BAG mentioned John "grow[ing] up...[to] become the future leader."

    Judgment Day is unavoidable, stopping it would ruin the franchise.

    The Idea that John goes to the future and learns to fight the terminators in a future where they are doomed to fail then goes back to Judgment Day and leads the resistance when nobody else has any experience fighting terminators makes good sense to me.

    Yes well, if you view some of the T4 trailers you'll see that's precisely the reason why he's a general but not in charge. People are suspicious of him because of what he knows, and they don't know how he knows it. This is what I get for posting over @ terminatorwiki.com

    Actually, guys, they've got a pretty in depth Save TSCC campaign going on over there. Check it out if you're interested. Mailing addresses, petitions, the works.

    ^ terminator.wikia.com is the better one. Terminatorwiki lets fanfic.

    Also, John Connor is not a General in the new film. Yes he leads his own group, but he's not a General.

    I have to go back and watch it but I'm fairly sure that in the original movie Kyle says that John taught them ways to fight the machines. He doesn't necessarily have to come out and say he knows everything.

    ^ Terminatorwiki on Fox lets people post fanfic as true. Terminator.wikia.com is moderated and only canon information is allowed.

    Fine, he's a Colonel. And considering this is the Fan site for the Originator of All Things Fan Fiction (please don't make me cite the Fan-zines), I don't think we have much room to complain about fanfiction.

    Most of that stuff is BAD though. Every once in a while you find a good story, but between the bad grammer, poor syntax, characters behaving abnormal, crazy plot connections...

    ...you know what? I'm stopping before I get a headache.

    We do when people take it as fact (yes I have had questions from people asking me when did Vin Diesel appear in terminator).
