Nah when the dude blew up the building that all the research was being done at, he didn't kill the others who were researching it.
I can't remember, I know he was the ONLY one with access to the recorded information and such, but if I remember correctly, they were not too far
away from making a brake through and making the first prototype. Which means the destruction of the data merely set back the date to the normal date
(making sense since you can't change the future if it's really the past of a further date, and the whole thing wasn't supposed to happen until John
was older, which in T-3 he is.), so instead of it happening ahead of time because of the discovered materials, it happens when it normally did.
Which is really good actually, because most movies involving travelling to the past doesn't really explain how the future wasn't altered, T-2 has
apparently VERY WELL explained how the future wasn't altered. In this case by the destruction of all "physical" evidence of the future, i.e. the
Hmm I can't remember, was the mom's picture that the "dad" brought back taken at the end of the 1st movie or the second? If it was taken at the
end of the second then that's really awesome parallelism.
Oh but an interesting thing is that the original end to T-2 was going to show the future all perfect and happy and crap, with the mom as really old
and pushing a swing of some young child who would be thought of as a grand-daughter. But they changed that because they wanted the end to make you
think that the future really isn't set, and nor is it really known.
So now that I think about it, John Conor in the 3rd movie is probably going to say to Arnold when he first arrives, "HOW THE HELL? WE DESTROYED YOU
THIS WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!".
Then Arnold will say. "How could you have destroyed me if none of this was supposed to happen because you destroyed me?"
