By the time Skynet became self-aware, it had spread into millions of computer servers across the planet. Ordinary computers in office buildings, dorm rooms, everywhere. It was software in cyberspace. There was no system core. It could not be shut down. The attack began at 6:18 PM, just as he said it would. Judgment Day. The day the human race was nearly destroyed by the weapons they'd built to protect themselves. I should have realized our destiny was never to stop Judgment Day. It was merely to survive it...together. The Terminator knew. He tried to tell us...but I didn't want to hear it. Maybe the future has been written. I don't know. All I know is what the Terminator taught me: Never stop fighting. And I never will. The battle has just begun.

A ship approached the planet Earth. It contained members of an alien species known as Predators. For the past three thousand years, Predators had been landing on Earth to sacrifice Xenomorphs, also known simply as Aliens. These sacrifices took place in an Antarctican pyramid. When they got there, three of the Predators left the ship to infiltrate the pyramid.
They ran with their weapons ready. As they got further inside, they saw life forms that appeared red through their masks. These life forms were humans. There were two of them. One was male and the other was female. They did not seem like a threat at the moment.
"They are all dead!" the female said. "Run! They're coming!"
"Shit!" the male said. "Are those from Skynet?"
The male was referring to the Predators that could now be seen. The three confused Predators looked at each other. They walked towards the humans with their weapons lowered. The humans did not move. The Predators decided to walk past them to see what they were running from. The two humans ran away.
The Predators soon discovered the corpses of a few other humans. Bullet holes were present in their skin. There was a room full of Alien eggs that had been blown up. But by what?
One of the Predators was shot to death. The other two turned around to see a group of machines. These machines were large, and most of them looked like small tanks. The Predators shot plasma at the machines. The machines fired back. The Predators pulled back and threw detonators. They ran out of the room before the explosion destroyed the machines.
They stumbled upon the Alien queen fighting another batch of machines. She used a blade-tipped tail to throw them against the walls. Then she saw the Predators. She was too quick for one of them. She extended her tail and drove it through a Predator's chest. The dying Predator used its technology to call for help and used his remaining strength to cut off the tip of the tail with his own blade. The Predator's body fell as acid spilled out of the tail and onto a few machines.
The only living Predator picked up the blade from the tail and continued hunting for the Alien.
