Enemy Within (Epilogue) – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

enemy-within-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4


Enemy Within (Epilogue)

Kerrigan: There’s no turning back now.

Izsha: I do not understand.

Kerrigan: The protoss will never forgive what I’ve done here. If my becoming human again eased their fears … well, I’ve given them new reasons to be afraid. But I’m not going to wait for them to come after me. I’ll strike first.

Leviathan Bridge

Izsha: Our leviathan is able to travel to another world at your command.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-enemy-within-epilogue-bridge-banner

 


Izsha Conversation

Kerrigan: It is done. The Golden Armada will never know we were here.

Izsha: I am glad that protoss is no longer aboard our leviathan. Her psionic presence was disturbing.

enemy-within-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Kerrigan: She died bravely, trying to save her friends.

Izsha: Why do you care how the protoss died?

Kerrigan: I will kill anyone in my way. That doesn’t mean I enjoy it.

Izsha: Even Arcturus Mengsk, my queen? Will his death bring you no joy?

Kerrigan: Stop talking, Izsha.

Abathur Conversation

Abathur: Placed parasite into protoss host.

enemy-within-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Kerrigan: Yes. What about it?

Abathur: Clever. Lateral thinking. Protoss not able to be infested. But can still be host to foreign organism. Origins of parasite unknown.

Kerrigan: I made it, Abathur. You’re not the only one who can spin sequences.

Abathur: Revelation. Will continue work.

Cutscene

Kerrigan: One of your ships escaped.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-2

Lasarra: Then you need only await the Golden Armada. Your death will be swift.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-3

Kerrigan: I’m sorry.

Lasarra: For what? Slaughtering my people?

Kerrigan: For what I must do to you. Your friends on that ship can sense you. They know they left one behind.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-4

Note: Kerrigan’s hand opens to reveal a zerg larva. She throws it into Lasarra’s torso and infests her.

Lasarra: No…

Kerrigan: But they can’t warp you to their ship, because I’m blocking them.

Lasarra: No, no!

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-5

Kerrigan: But if I drop the veil…

Lasarra: Do not warp me in, Templar! Do not-

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-6

Izsha: You let the other protoss take her?

Kerrigan: She will be their death.

 


Gameplay

Lasarra: The Templar must be warned…

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-7

Kerrigan: Now.

Note: Lasarra groans in agony, and explodes. The larva spawns from Lasarra’s remains.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-8

Kerrigan: Listen carefully. This ship contains many dangers. Follow my commands and hide in the shadows. You will consume and grow. Infest this ship and kill every last protoss onboard. Now go, and spawn your brood.

Kerrigan: A zealot! Use your parasitic invasion to hide within that creature.

Note: The larva gains a new ability – Parasitic Invasion [Q]: Causes the Larva to leap toward the targeted creature, infest it, and take control.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-9

Zealot: What was that noise?

Kerrigan: Alright, he’s gone. Consume your host and move on.

Note: The larva gains a new ability – Consume Host [W]: Devours the creature from within, giving biomass to the zerg.

Kerrigan: A sentry! Hide in the steam vents until it passes.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-10

Sentry: Creep detected. Priority One: Established. All other priorities rescinded. Patrolling.

Kerrigan: There’s no way around those zealots. Invade the ursadon and crush them.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-11

Zealot: The zerg have infested the ursadon!

Kerrigan: So the protoss think they have a few infested animals… They have no idea what they’re up against.

Kerrigan: The time has come for you to grow into a broodmother. Stop here. This area is safe from prying eyes. Evolve. Grow.

Note: Niadra gains a new ability – Birth Zergling [W]: Fast melee unit. Leaps over obstacles and onto targets from range. Deals increased damage. Can morph into a Baneling. (Raptor Strain)

Kerrigan: You are Niadra. This is your purpose: spawn a brood and destroy the protoss.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-12

 

Niadra: I live to serve. Kill these creatures. I can consume their biomass and use it to grow our brood.

Expedition Leader: The zerg have infiltrated our vessel! Warriors, destroy them!

Niadra: Tear down their defenses! Nothing stops the Swarm!

Niadra: This vent is our only way forward! Go!

Niadra: There! That structure powers this shield!

Niadra: The shield no longer blocks my path. Let us move forward. A strong energy emanates from this part of the ship. What is its purpose?

Niadra: The energy… it is overwhelming.

Kerrigan: You’ve found their warp drive! Destroy it and this vessel will never reach Shakuras!

Niadra: The shield is down! I’ll destroy the warp drive myself!

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-13

Protoss Vessel: Warning. A warp drive breach has occurred. Evacuate immediately.

Expedition Leader: contain them! The zerg must not reach the stasis chambers!

Niadra: You will not hold back the Swarm!

Note: A cutscene plays: The Warp Drive explodes.

Niadra: The explosions have stopped.

Kerrigan: Wait, there is a disturbance in the chamber ahead.

Protoss vessel: Emergency. Power failure detected. Awakening protoss warriors from stasis.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-14

Kerrigan: It’s time to evolve, and expand your control over your brood, Niadra.

Expedition Leader: Exterminate the specimens! Do not allow the zerg to consume them!

Niadra: Kill their warriors! I must have that biomass!

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-16

Kerrigan: You must evolve, grow stronger. The final battle approaches.

Niadra: Do not let them kill the ursadon! The Ursadon is mine. Come beast, we have protoss to destroy.

Kerrigan: The protoss are fortifying the bridge. Prepare your forces.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-17

Expedition Leader: The ship has taken us as far as it can! Prepare the escape pods!

Kerrigan: Destroy the pods before they launch! The protoss must not reach Shakuras!

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-enemy-within-18

Niadra: They prepare more escape pods! Destroy them!

Expedition Leader: We will never be defeated. We give our lives for the Khala!

Niadra: Yes… you will.

 


Cutscene

Niadra: The protoss are no more, my queen. My queen, can you hear me? We are alone. The Queen of Blades has given us one purpose: to destroy the protoss. We will be prepared… We will serve again.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-zergling-evolution-1


Cinematic

Kerrigan: I’m going to look into your memories, and find out why I feel so angry when I see you.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-zergling-evolution-2

Abathur: Memories not important. Distractions.

Kerrigan: I see it in your mind… You designed the Queen of Blades! Your limbs wrapped me in the chrysalis!

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-zergling-evolution-3

Abathur: Weak and soft. Broke bones. Tore flesh. Improved you.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-zergling-evolution-4

Note: Kerrigan’s eyes flare attacking Abathur psionically.

Kerrigan: If you weren’t important to my plans, you’d be dead right now.

starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-zergling-evolution-5

Abathur: Unclear.

Enemy Within (Bridge) – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6


Cinematic

Izsha: I feel my queen’s hatred, burning like a star. But there is something underneath it … I do not understand.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Kerrigan: It’s pain, Izsha. Sometimes even my hatred can’t shield me from … memories.

Izsha: Of an enemy who damaged you?

Kerrigan: No. Memories of better times. Of a friend … now lost.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

 


Bridge

Izsha: You have grown stronger, my queen. New abilities are available within your chamber.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

 


Lasarra – Conversation

Lasarra: You do not have to do this. You could leave. Be away from this moon before the Golden Armada arrives.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

Kerrigan: I can’t run. I know that now. My enemies will never stop coming for me. All I can do is fight.

Lasarra: Then there will never be peace.

Kerrigan: Peace?

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

 


Izsha – Conversation

Izsha: Our scouts report a large protoss ship on the other side of the moon.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Kerrigan: The interstellar ship they used to travel here.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-9

Izsha: It is not yet ready for launch, but it will be before we can get to it.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-10

Kerrigan: They’re tenacious, I’ll give them that. But I am ready for this.

 


Kerrigan Chamber – Conversation

Abathur – Conversation

Abathur: New discovery. Large scale improvement to zergling sequences.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

Kerrigan: What kind of improvement?

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

Abathur: Answer complex. Can branch evolution of fully evolved zergling, form two new strains.

Kerrigan: Then add them to the Swarm, Abathur.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-13

Abathur: Strains mutually exclusive. Will compete in sequence. One must be chosen. Other must be discarded.

Kerrigan: Fine, make some of each; I want to see them in action.

enemy-within-bridge-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-14

Abathur: Will set up tests for both. Initiate from evolution pit.

Shooting the Messenger – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Single Player Transcript

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1


Shoot the Messenger

Izsha: The protoss still seek to warn Shakuras of our presence. They are preparing to send shuttles through their warp network to Shakuras!

Main Objectives:

  • Destroy All Protoss Shuttles (8 Waves Remaining)
  • No Shuttles Can Escape

Bonus Objectives:

  • Destroy the Stasis Chambers (0/3) – (+1 Kerrigan Level each)

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

Cutscene

Izsha: The protoss are preparing shuttles for launch.

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Kerrigan: A warp conduit. I sense millions of protoss minds on the other side… Shakuras! If a single shuttle passes through they can alert Shakuras to our presence.

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Izsha: Should we destroy it then?

Kerrigan: No, they would detect that. Our only choice is to stop their shuttles from reaching the conduit.

Gameplay

Kerrigan: Nafash’s hydralisks! Abathur, assimilate their essence into the Swarm.

Abathur: Hydralisk reconstituted. Can morph from larva.

Kerrigan: I need more hydralisks to destroy these shuttles.

Izsha: We should morph more hydralisks to destroy the enemy’s flying units.

Izsha: My queen, the protoss have launched a shuttle. It is enroute to a warp conduit.

Kerrigan: Not if I have anything to say about it. We will bring down that shuttle!

Expedition Leader: Engage the hive directly! Our shuttles must break through!

Kerrigan: You will never leave this ball of ice!

Izsha: My queen, the protoss were gathering biological samples and storing them in these stasis chambers.

Kerrigan: We’ll destroy the chambers, and take the biomass if we can.

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Izsha: The protoss launched another shuttle. This one is accompanied by a fighter escort.

Expedition Leader: You cannot stop us all, Kerrigan!

Izsha: The protoss launched another shuttle. It’s bearing towards an unknown location.

Kerrigan: They’re bringing more warp conduits online. I sense two more activating.

Izsha: A protoss shuttle has reached the warp conduit! It must be destroyed before it jumps out of the system.

Izsha: The protoss are launching shuttles from a new base.

Kerrigan: Well, that makes things a little more complicated.

Abathur: Large quantities of biomass. Good to have. Can use to improve Swarm.

    Note: Nafash’s hive cluster is found east of your hive base, by the corner of the map.

Kerrigan: This hive cluster now belongs to the Swarm.

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Kerrigan: Another chamber destroyed. What were the protoss doing with all this biomass?

The protoss are launching two sets of shuttles. Tenacious bastards.

Izsha: I am sensing a protoss psionic matrix. Your forces are nearing the enemy’s base.

Izsha: The protoss have launched more shuttles.

Expedition Leader: One shuttle through the conduit, and you will feel the might of the Golden Armada!

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

Izsha: The protoss have launched more shuttles.

Kerrigan: The protoss launched three shuttles at once! They’re bearing towards the same conduit!

Izsha: The protoss have launched a mothership.

Kerrigan: They must be using it to cloak shuttles.

Kerrigan: All forces, defend the central conduit! Tear their ships from the sky!

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Cutscene

Kerrigan: That’s the last. The warp conduits are useless to them now.

shoot-the-messenger-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Izsha: You’ve done it, my queen. The protoss threat is removed.

Kerrigan: Nothing is done until they are all dead.

Shooting the Messenger (Bridge) – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Single Player Transcript

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

These scenes take place within the Zerg Leviathan’s Bridge, Evolution Pit, and Kerrigan Chamber. This intermission takes place between the missions: Harvest of Screams and Shooting the Messenger.


Cutscene

Izsha: We captured a prisoner in the wastes and subdued her, my queen. She says she is a researcher.
shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

Kerrigan: I didn’t order you to take prisoners.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Izsha: Abathur requested it. He wants to dissect her.

Kerrigan: What’s the point? He won’t be able to use protoss genetic material.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Izsha: He likes to try.

Kerrigan: Actually, keep her alive for now. I might find a use for her.

 

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4


Bridge

Izsha: My queen, your chamber is now available. Within, you can alter your abilities.

 


Evolution Pit – Conversation

Kerrigan: What is that sound?

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8 shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-9

Abathur: Failed experiments. Reverting to biomass. Slow process.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Kerrigan: At least put them out of their misery first.

Abathur: Wasted effort. Creatures will die soon. Pain irrelevant.

Kerrigan: When you say things like that, Abathur … I almost remember you and I feel … anger.

Abathur: Anger product of adrenaline, stress-response, imminent threat. No threat to you. No anger.

Kerrigan: I’ll be the judge of that.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-10

 


Kerrigan Chamber – Conversation

Izsha: This is your personal chamber. From here you can focus your neural pathways, and alter your active abilities. As you grow in power, newer and stronger abilities will awaken. You can alter your active abilities here, whenever you wish.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

 


Lasarra

Kerrigan: What are your people doing here?

Lasarra: We study this moon to see if its rotation can be altered, its climate improved. Do you understand? We are only colonists, and you are killing us.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-13

Kerrigan: Yes. And if I let you live, you’ll call your Golden Armada, and they will kill me.

Lasarra: Kill thousands to save yourself? Is that how you justify this?

Kerrigan: I justify nothing. There is no moral high ground here. Your people have killed billions of zerg. We are all covered in blood. There may be more on my hands than yours, but in the end we are both killers.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-14

 


Izsha – Conversation

Izsha: The hunt goes well, my queen?

Kerrigan: It’s bloody.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-16

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-15

Izsha: Those protoss would kill you if they could. They are not zerg, that means they are the enemy.

Kerrigan: Is it that simple?

Izsha: For zerg, it is. Whatever my queen has lost, think what she has gained: Purity of essence. You are the will of the Swarm.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-17

 


Hatchery – Conversation

Kerrigan: Nafash’s brood lives again within the Swarm.

shoot-the-messenger-prelude-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-18

Izsha: When the protoss struck, she fell back to prepared positions in the ice valleys. The protoss had to hunt her down.

Kerrigan: She was intelligent, careful and tenacious. But she made one mistake. She ran away.

Harvest of Screams – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Single Player Transcript


Harvest of Screams

After the “Transmission” cinematic, players are shown a two-option screen. Choose either planet Kaldir or planet Char.

In both options, Kerrigan’s aim is to reclaim rogue zerg, each led by its own broodmother.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

In this case, I chose planet Kaldir. This map enables the Roach and Hydralisk units.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

MISSION: KALDIR

  • Reclaim Nafash’s Brood

NEW UNITS

  • Roach
  • Hydralisk

Adjutant: A broodmother named Nafash took her brood to the frozen moon of Kaldir. Recent reports indicate a protoss presence there. There is a high likelihood that Nafash is fighting the protoss for control of Kaldir. Her brood is believed to contain highly evolved, dangerous zerg organisms.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

 


Cinematic

Adjutant: Warning. Zerg organisms detected.

Kerrigan: That’s why I’m here. They’ll either accept me as their queen, or I’ll start killing them one-by-one until they do.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

(Izsha appears before Kerrigan)

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Kerrigan: What are you?

Izsha: I am Izsha. Your Majesty used to store all her ideas, thoughts and plans within me. Do you not remember?

Kerrigan: Yes … I do remember you. More importantly, you remember me.

(Kerrigan’s mind reaches out into Izsha’s mind – yellow glow in their eyes as special effect)

Izsha: You are the Queen of Blades. I obey.


Kerrigan: Perfect. Summon the Swarm, and prepare to move on Korhal.

Izsha: The Swarm is in disarray, and will not answer your call. Most zerg on Kaldir are under the command of broodmother Nafash. She seeks to create her own Swarm. While she lives, the Swarm will be divided.

Kerrigan: Not for long, it won’t. Take us down to the surface.

 


New Conversation: Izsha

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-15

Kerrigan: Tell me about this leviathan.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

Izsha: It is the organism from which you command the Swarm. And this is its nerve center.

Kerrigan: And it can take me to any world I wish?

Izsha: Of course, my queen. But our numbers are few. Before conquering other worlds, you may wish to reclaim your forces here on Kaldir.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

Kerrigan: Leave the strategy to me. Now, what else can I do on this leviathan?

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-13

Izsha: You can evolve and upgrade your Swarm in the evolution pit. The creature Abathur can help you.

 


New Conversation: Hatchery

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-14

Izsha: The scouts report that Nafash set up a hive on this plain, but abandoned it shortly after.


Kerrigan: She moved off into those ice valleys. That must be where the protoss are.

harvest-of-screams-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-19

 


Evolution Pit

Kerrigan: What are you?

Abathur: Abathur. Evolve Swarm, spin strands and sequences. Served Overmind, then served Queen of Blades. Now serve you.

Kerrigan: I am the Queen of Blades!

Abathur: Different. Examining genetic strands. Queen of Blades was efficient, ancient zerg qualities. Minor terran influence. You, infected with more terran matter. Grasper limb poorly designed. Can improve. Will give it back, better.

Kerrigan: Don’t touch me.

Abathur: Only focus is evolving the Swarm. Seek perfection in all things. Work in evolution pit. Can review my work here.

 


Zergling Evolution

Abathur: Many benefits to evolving Swarm. Start with zergling.

Mutation Available: Zergling

Abathur: Organism can be upgraded, three distinct mutations available. Once chosen, will activate sequences within creature. Improve combat potential. Mutation choice, not permanent. Can alter at any time.

 


New Conversation: Abathur

Abathur: Moon small. Very little local essence.

 


Harvest of Screams: Mission Briefing

Reclaim Nafash’s Brood

Izsha: Nafash moved her brood into these ice valleys to fight the protoss. It’s unknown if she will join you willingly.

MAIN OBJECTIVES REWARD: +5 Kerrigan Levels

BONUS OBJECTIVES REWARD: +2 Kerrigan Levels

NEW UNIT: Roach

Cutscene

Izsha: This moon has pockets of intense cold called flash freeze storms. One such storm is approaching. It will push temperatures down so fast that almost all thermal energy will be lost.

Izsha: The storm will pass quickly but while it is here, your troops will be frozen in place.

Kerrigan: I can sense indigenous creatures nearby. Their matriarchs have powerful essence. Strong enough to help us adapt to this cold.

Gameplay

Kerrigan: I have to find an ursadon matriarch and get her essence.

Izsha: This zerg is feral. It is not under the control of any higher entity.

Kerrigan: Another feral roach. Something is very wrong.

Izsha: The flash freeze is near.

Kerrigan: I just have to find an ursadon matriarch.

Izsha: The flash freeze has arrived. Your troops are frozen.

Abathur: These ursadon, led by matriarch. Strong essence. Once local essence assimilated. Swarm will resist flash freeze.

Izsha: Flash freeze is passing.

Abathur: Essence assimilated. Swarm resistant to flash freeze.

Kerrigan: Excellent. And now I can sense Nafash’s hive cluster nearby …

Abathur: Injured roaches able to burrow. Regain health.

Kerrigan: Nafash’s brood. The protoss must have wiped them out. I’ll awaken this hive cluster for the Swarm.

Izsha: The protoss sensed the awakening! They are aware of our presence!

Expedition Leader (Protoss): The Queen of Blades! But what has happened to you? Frail and human!

Kerrigan: Protoss! I wondered when you’d show yourselves.

Expedition Leader: We must inform Shakuras. They will send the Golden Armada – they will destroy you!

Kerrigan: Izsha, tell me the protoss are out of range of Shakuras.

Izsha: They are, my queen. However, the protoss have psi-link spires that can amplify their psionic communication.

Kerrigan: Then we destroy those spires before the protoss can activate them.

Abathur: Additional matriarch essence nearby. If collected, Swarm can become more efficient in flash freeze.

Kerrigan: I do like an efficient Swarm. If I have a chance, I will hunt down some matriarchs.

Izsha: By accomplishing these goals you will grow more powerful. Your damage, energy, or life will immediately improve as your power level increases.

Expedition Leader: Brave protoss, slow her down! Take the fight to her!

Izsha: Protoss approaching the hive cluster! Flash freeze approaching! The protoss will be vulnerable until it passes!

[Flash Freeze Duration: 1:30]

Kerrigan: The protoss are defenseless! Attack now!

Izsha: Flash freeze storm is fading.

Note: Another wave of zealots will arrive a few minutes afterwards.

Izsha: Flash freeze will be here soon.

Izsha: Flash freeze storm has arrived!

Kerrigan: Press our advantage! Destroy the protoss!

[Flash Freeze Duration: 1:30]

Izsha: Flash freeze ending. We should retreat until the next storm hits.

[Next Flash Freeze: 0:45]

Expedition Leader: Time grows short, Kerrigan! The Golden Armada will come for you!

Izsha: In a few moments, there will be a flash freeze.

Izsha: A flash freeze storm has hit.

Kerrigan: The protoss are defenseless! Attack now!

[Flash Freeze Duration: 1:30]

Izsha: Flash freeze storm is fading.

Abathur: Matriarch essence useful. Visibility during flash freeze increased.

Izsha: Flash freeze will be here soon. The flash freeze storms are getting shorter. It will be harder to take advantage of the storms.

Izsha: Flash freeze is here!

[Flash Freeze Duration: 1:00]

Izsha: The flash freeze is ending.

[Next Flash Freeze: 2:00]

Izsha: Flash freeze will be here soon.

Izsha: The protoss forces are now frozen.

Kerrigan: One down.

Expedition Leader: Even if you destroy our spires, we will get word to Shakuras!

Abathur: Matriarch essence assimilated. Swarm perfectly adapted to fight in flash freeze storms.

Kerrigan: I feel stronger.

Kerrigan: One more left.

Expedition Leader: It’s no use, Kerrigan! Shakuras will destroy you!

Expedition Leader: The spires have fallen! Retreat!

Izsha: The protoss expedition will be unable to contact Shakuras.

Kerrigan: Now they have to deal with us.

Transmission

Kerrigan: Jim? Are you on this frequency? Jim, are you out there? I’m at the rendezvous, it’s all clear here. I’ve been thinking about what you said. There’s something dark in me, Jim … I need you. I need you to hear me right now.

Lockwell: We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this news. Notorious rebel Jim Raynor was captured in a daring raid yesterday. He was briefly interrogated, and summarily executed. Emperor Mengsk had this to say:

Arcturus: “Proud Dominion citizens, at long last our nightmare is over. The lawless terrorist James Raynor is dead. With his death comes a new era of peace. The protoss have retreated from our Dominion, and the zerg threat has been removed. Their Swarm is shattered and leaderless. Soon we will eradicate every last zerg on Char. In short, we have won. Our peace and security is assured. Good night, my faithful subjects.

Kerrigan Mengsk.

Adjutant: Navigation online. Destination zerg space. Confirm?

Kerrigan: Confirmed.

Rendezvous – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Single Player Transcript


Rendezvous

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

Adjutant: Scanning. Detecting Dominion forces and a zerg hive cluster.

Kerrigan: Yeah, there must be an old hive here. I’m more worried about the Dominion.

Fleet Command: Ground team, this is Fleet. What is your status?

Dominion Commander: Fleet, our base is set up and the Drakken Pulse Cannon is almost online.

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Fleet Command: Roger that. Eliminate all stragglers as they warp to these coordinates. Will return for you. Fleet out.

Kerrigan: That cannon will take out Jim’s ship as soon as he enters orbit. He’ll never see it coming. Set course for the zerg hive cluster. I need an army.

(Security Cam 3 – Stardate 282-5837-73)

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Kerrigan: I can sense a mind controlling this brood. Who are you?

Naktul: My queen, I am Naktul, a broodmother. You created us to extend your control of the Swarm. Have you returned to us?

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Kerrigan: I’m not your queen and I haven’t returned. But I need your brood to destroy the terran cannon, right now.

Naktul: Most of my brood is with me. I can send them to you, but it will take time …

Kerrigan: Then send them. When they arrive, we’ll tear down that cannon before Jim gets here.

Kerrigan: Meanwhile, I’m going to prepare this hive for combat. The Dominion would have tracked my ship and they’ll be looking for me.

 

Reinforcements: 14:59

Kerrigan: Okay. Let’s see if I can remember how to do this. The first thing I need is a spawning pool.

[14:00]

Dominion Marine: Command, we’ve found Kerrigan! She’s holed up in a zerg base! We’re going in! Send reinforcements!

Kerrigan: The Dominion found us. They’re going to hit us hard.

[13:32]

Kerrigan: I remember spine crawlers. I can mutate them from drones.

Naktul: When the Dominion arrived, they drove some of my brood into caves. They will rejoin us if we can kill the terran soldiers guarding the cave entrances.

[12:30]

(New wave of Marines attack the Hive base)

[12:10]

Naktul: A queen would be very useful for fighting the terrans. You can birth a queen at the hatchery.

[10:00]

Naktul: There are more zerglings in this cave, my queen.

[09:40]

Kerrigan: Dominion approaching from the north!

(5 Hellions)

[06:35]

Naktul: There is a large Dominion force on its way to the hive cluster!

(7 marines and 2 Marauders)

Naktul: Come out of hiding, zerglings! Fight for your queen!

[05:30]

Naktul: There are more zerglings in this cave, my queen.

[05:20]

Dominion Marine: Send backup — being attacked — need back up … now!

Naktul: You have recovered part of the brood! Rise, my children!

[03:10]

Naktul: The worms are tunneling to you right now. My brood will be there soon.

[01:30]

Naktul: Only a short time before my nydus worms bring reinforcements!

Naktul: More of my zerglings! The brood grows stronger!

(Achievement: Zerg Save the Queen — complete bonus objective)

[00:00]

Naktul: My brood has come! They are yours to command, my queen!

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Kerrigan: Perfect. Now let’s get up to their base and destroy that cannon before Jim arrives.

Dominion Marine: Zerg! Defend the cannon!

Naktul: I have arrived! All of my brood is here to serve you!

(Cannon is destroyed)

Naktul: The gun is destroyed! The terrans are fleeing to their ships!

rendezvous-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

Kerrigan: Kill them all. No one gets out alive.

Naktul: Yes! The queen has returned! Kill the terrans!

Kerrigan: The queen? You’re right. I was slipping back into something that – I have to get out of here.

Naktul: We will await your return.
