DADOES Continuity

World War Terminus, abbreviated W.W.T., was a conflict that occurred some years prior to 1992/2021 and resulted in the devastation of much of the planet Earth. In the aftermath, a radioactive dust was left in the atmosphere, necessitating extraterrestrial colonization.[1]

The cause for the war and its victor – if any – was unknown.[1] Both human and android combatants were involved.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Neither Blade Runner, the film adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, nor its sequel, Blade Runner 2049 make any mention of a war preceding the events of the films. However, the 1997 video game does allude to the Third Terran War.
