There are still no purely impossible elements involved. It is a seminal depiction of an alien invasion of Earth. It's also rather more optimistic than most Cyberpunk works.

These prospects must and should effect our thoughts and expressions and, yes, our actions; and if writers close their eyes to this, they may be entertainers, but they are not fit to call themselves science fiction writers.” “Cyberpunk is roadkill on the information superhighway of the 1990s. Terminator (Dark Horse): In 2010 Zack Whedon and Andy MacDonald continued their solid run on updating the Terminator mythology. You can’t know what people are going to do until they get their hands on it and start using it on a daily basis, using it to make a buck and u­sing it for criminal purposes and all the different things that people do.

Their agenda is similar to that of the Sixties counterculture, yet their means are very different, and to some, terrifying. The invention of cyberspace has allowed humans to link into a shared electronic network, increasing hundreds-fold the speed of such complex interactions as courtroom trials.
