In the early 21st Century of an alternate reality, Sentinel robots have effectively taken control of the United States in order to carry out their mission of eliminating the alleged menace posed to ordinary humanity by superhuman mutants. The Sentinels succeeded in either killing all known super humans, whether mutants or not, or imprisoning them within concentration camps.
In this alternate reality, the last known survivors of the team of superhuman mutants known as the X-Men were the adult Katherine Pryde, known as Ariel (her counterpart in this reality is known as Shadowcat), and the adolescent Rachel Summers. Pryde and Summers illegally entered a top secret "cyber-robotics" complex in order to deal with Project Nimrod, the effort to construct the ultimate, most highly advanced Sentinel robot possible using the technology of that time; they were discovered and pursued by guards, but they locked themselves within the laboratory, seemingly trapped. However, Pryde had given Summers a posthypnotic command to use her psionic powers and connection to the Phoenix Force to project herself into the past when Pryde said the words "Dark Phoenix." Pryde did so, and Summers was hurled into the past of our reality.
The end result of Project Nimrod, the highly advanced Sentinel named Nimrod, killed Pryde after Summers' departure through time. Nimrod followed Summers back through time to Manhattan.
