The Terminator Timeline

There are many dates and events that take place withing the Terminator franchise. Even the movies and TV series alone have caused a lot of confusion among fans trying to piece together decent explanations for why things happen differently in various stories. I am not really familiar with all of the stories that happen beyond the movies and TV series, so I mainly relied on the Terminator Wiki when I was trying to think of explanations for all of the contradictions. The purpose of this timeline is to help others who gain major headaches whenever they come across various Terminator video games, comics, and novels. Time travel can be used as an explanation for the long list of contradictions. Keep in mind that not every single thing is explained in as much detail as possible. If I ever find out something new that could benefit this timeline (future games, books, comics, and films) then I will update this. Now, begin reading The Terminator Timeline very carefully...
