While time travel had been done before (Cameron’s script itself resembled two “Outer Limits” episodes by Harlan Ellison, who suc-cessfully sued Orion for copyright infringement), “The Terminator” granted quasi-religious meaning to the proceedings.

Main article: T-900 Cameron is the first Terminator with various additional features, such as full color HUD, feeling, crying, and eating. Combat: Cameron's physical abilities may be somewhat diminished compared to larger endoskeletons, due to her greater sacrifice of overall mass and reach. However, she seems to be far more flexible than the other Terminators but is endowed with comparable pure strength. She is programmed with the greatest repertoire and mastery of Eastern Martial Arts compared to all the Terminators in existence thus far, and relies on sophisticated techniques and finesse rather than brute force in comparison. She also employs tactics that utilize the surrounding environment more than her rivals, such as in the Pilot episode when she used an electric fuse to force Cromartie offline. She was shown to be powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with Cromartie and disable him in single combat in the pilot episode as well as other T-888s such as Vick (whom she manhandles, def...

If that is the case, then what better infiltrator than a beautiful, petite teenage girl?" 2. - Josh Friedman. Josh Friedman referenced franchise creator James Cameron's original concept for Terminators as he formulated ideas for the character. James Cameron envisioned Terminators as robotic, humanoid infiltration units "that could blend in with humanity." In keeping with this idea, Friedman introduced Cameron as the most advanced model of Terminator whose ascendancy over other models was defined by her ability to mimic human behavior. The decision to make the character a teenager, female and of a small physical stature was also influenced by the original Terminator character concept; Friedman believed that such attributes were ideal for an infiltrator. Another factor that prompted Friedman to characterize Cameron as an adolescent female stemmed from the desire...Cameron has been shown speaking five languages: English, Spanish102, Russian107, Armenian109, and Japanese210.Cameron seems to enjoy listening (and dancing) to Chopin's Nocturne in C-sharp minor, although, as a computer, she is putting in to practice what Allison told her under interrogation about her moth...Cameron is the first female character to say the famous line, "Come with me if you want to live".Cameron's been seen using six weapons: a Glock 17 pistol102 (apparently her favorite firearm, which she on occasion dual-wields210), a HK-5105, an M-79 grenade launcher106, an M4A1202, a Remington...Cameron at Summer Glau WikiCameron at Wikipedia↑ "Born to Run"↑ This is canon level 3 and any assumptions made based on the character articles involving TSCC are to be taken as such.

Cameron's agent disliked the early concept of the horror film and requested that he work on something else. After this, Cameron dismissed his agent.
