This one is short, only about ten pages, but good. It shows the desperate things humans are forced to do in order to survive.
Skynet has built a data control tower which is turning out to be very efficient in pinpointing Resistance fighters. A small group of humans have been sent to put it out of business. The closer they get to the tower, the more of the people die from various automated guns, traps, and a Terminator.
The narrator is a young girl who is carried by one of the men. She’s really scared and has earphones that play music to her so she doesn’t have the hear how men who are childhood friends are dying. The men wear gas masks so they are even more faceless than usual.
Short and poignant.
