    Do you think the terminator would kill the zombie version of John Connor or do you think he would ignore him because if John Connor is a zombie then he is already terminated since a zombie isn't a living being. Granted I wonder if this would also be one of those paradox things that robots always can't handle which would then make the Terminator's go on and on about "This doesn not compute" untill it's head explodes while trying to figure out what to do.

    The result hinges on the answer to one very important question. Is the terminator played by Bruce Campbell?

    I don't think Zombie Connor would be a very effective commander of the human resistance, so SkyNet would probably ignore him if it knew what a Zombie was.

    If not, then presumably a terminator's facial recognition algorithms would come back with a positive and the Terminator would try to kill it. It might be rather confused when the bullets and/or strangling don't seem to have any effect...

    What I want to know is would Zombie Connor try to kill the Terminator to eat its brain. What would he do if all he found were chips in there? What would he do for salsa?

    I've always fancied the thought that zombies might find the cloned flesh of the Terminator infiltrators even more attractive than the regular variety. Imagine keeping a chained zombie around to sniff them out.

    He lets Zombie John Connor live.

    Zombies present no threat to Skynet - they are far more interested in the pursuit of brains than toppling the oppressive boot heel of their mechanical overlords and returning the earth to its rightful human owners - but an incredible threat to the remaining human population. Letting him infect and accelerate the destruction of mankind would be in the machine's best interest.

    That's funny that you said "He lets Zombie John Connor live."

    Actually, a zombified John Connor would be a Skynet plot. Kill him, reanimate him, send him back to base, let him infect others. The human race would end up wiping themselves out.

    We'll call that movie Terminator: Day of the Dead.
