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.
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)
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?
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.
Kerrigan: Okay. Let’s see if I can remember how to do this. The first thing I need is a spawning pool.
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.
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.
(New wave of Marines attack the Hive base)
Naktul: A queen would be very useful for fighting the terrans. You can birth a queen at the hatchery.
Naktul: There are more zerglings in this cave, my queen.
Kerrigan: Dominion approaching from the north!
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!
Naktul: There are more zerglings in this cave, my queen.
Dominion Marine: Send backup — being attacked — need back up … now!
Naktul: You have recovered part of the brood! Rise, my children!
Naktul: The worms are tunneling to you right now. My brood will be there soon.
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)
Naktul: My brood has come! They are yours to command, my queen!
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!
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.
06:58 – Shipboard Time
Deck Officer: IFF says it’s Raynor’s dropship.
Kerrigan: Jim? Jim? Where’s Jim?
Valerian: We couldn’t get him out.
Kerrigan: You left him behind?
(Kerrigan telekinetically lifts Valerian above the ground and chokes his throat Darth Vader style)
Horner: Stand down! Let him go, Kerrigan! Valerian is helping us!
Kerrigan: There is no “us.”
Deck Officer: IFF negative. Multiple hostiles, inside the perimeter!
Horner: Scramble tac response squads 3 through 9.
Deck Officer: Hull breach: frame seven, deck three.
Horner: Defensive maneuver Delta-Four! Prep all stations for jump!
Kerrigan: No one is going anywhere until I see Jim.
Deck Officer: Shields at thirty! Failure imminent.
Horner: Dominion Fleet, this is Hyperion. Cease fire. Crown Prince Valerian is aboard!
Valerian: My father will sacrifice any piece of the chess board to take the queen.
Horner: We have to jump now. We’ll lead them away and circle back for Jim. Sarah! We need to work together!
Kerrigan: Do what you want. I’m going to find Jim.
Get It Together
RESEARCH STATION EB-103
05:41 – Local Time
Jim Raynor: You made a mess down there, Sarah.
Kerrigan: Starting to regret bringing me back?
Jim Raynor: (Chuckles) Never.
Kerrigan: I heard about what happened with your friend, Tychus. I’m sorry.
Jim Raynor: He made his choice. I made mine.
Kerrigan: Maybe you should have let him kill me. I slaughtered millions as the Queen of Blades …
Jim Raynor: That wasn’t you, Sarah. Leave the past behind, and let’s focus on gettin’ out of here. I’ll suit up and meet you here in an hour.
Kerrigan: Okay. That sounds … good.
BACK IN THE SADDLE
Depart with Raynor
Jim Raynor: My ship is prepped and we’re ready to go. Headin’ your way now.
RESEARCH STATION EB-103
06:36 Local Time
Adjutant: Warning. Dominion forces in sectors three, four, and six.
Jim Raynor: Sarah …
Nova: This is Nova. Begin your sweep – find Kerrigan!
Dominion Ghost: Bravo team, acknowledged.
Jim Raynor: Sarah!
Jim Raynor: Sarah?
Kerrigan: The killing will never stop until Mengsk is dead. I’m going to make him pay.
Jim Raynor: That’s enough of that. Get it together, darling.
Nova: Bravo team, come in … are you there Bravo? All units to sector six, go go go!
Jim Raynor: We got to go.
Kerrigan: Been a long time …
Jim Raynor: Like riding a bike.
Kerrigan: Yep, like riding a bike.
Valerian: Jim, do you read me?
Kerrigan: We read you.
Valerian: Kerrigan, I’m glad you’re alive. But we’re cut off from your location. You’ll have to fight your way across the lab to the tram station. That will take you to Jim’s ship.
Raynor: Roger that, Junior. We can handle it. Back in the saddle. Let’s move out.
Kerrigan: Marauder ahead! I’ll take him out with a kinetic blast.
Raynor: Hostiles on the right!
Umojan Marine: Dominion insertion team! Help us take them out!
Umojan Scientist: Raynor, Kerrigan! This recovery terminal will heal you and restore some of your energy! Good luck, I’m getting out of here!
Raynor: Looks like this thing is all out of juice. Dead end. Let’s head back. Not gettin’ out this way either.
Kerrigan: Those marines are clustered pretty tight. I should be able to handle them all with crushing grip.
Umojan Marine: The way is clear! Move out!
Valerian: Another wave of Dominion insertion teams incoming!
Kerrigan: Look up! Where are the Umojans going?
Raynor: Let’ em go their way, we’ll go ours. Almost to the tram station. It’ll take us right to the shuttle bay.
Umojan Marine: The corridor is blocked! You’ll have to cut through the sublevel to reach the tram.
Raynor: Come in, Valerian. The main corridor is blocked. Can you open side door A-twelve?
Valerian: I can. Be ready though, the zerg specimens got loose in the attack.
Kerrigan: Yes, I can sense them down there. But I don’t think I should control them again.
Raynor: I won’t ask you to do that. We’ll handle them.
Valerian: The door will open in … Three. Two. One!
Umojan Marine: Too many zerglings!
(Kerrigan and Raynor take the elevator)
Nova: Kerrigan, my forces have taken control of the security hub. We are putting this facility on lockdown. Make this easy on everyone and surrender now.
Kerrigan: They’re trying to trap us.
Raynor: C’mon, darlin’. We gotta make it through those doors!
Kerrigan: This reminds me of the old days.
Raynor: My hair’s got more grey in it.
Kerrigan: And my hair’s got more zerg.
Kerrigan: We made it!
Valerian: Keep moving! They’re about to seal the area!
Kerrigan: An ultralisk. Let’s see how it likes a kinetic blast!
Raynor: It’s a mess down here.
Kerrigan: We’ve been through worse together.
Dominion Ghost: Target Acquired! Located Kerrigan and Raynor!
Raynor: Lord, woman, how many zerglings did you make?
Kerrigan: Yeah, I may have gone a little overboard.
Raynor: Destroy the debris! We got to reach that door. We made it!
Kerrigan: Are you surprised?
Valerian: Keep going! There’s only one more door between you and the tram station!
Kerrigan: I sense a lot of Dominion in the next room.
Raynor: Looks like a rough fight.
Kerrigan: They have caged zerg in there. We can use this console to set them loose.
Raynor: Or we can use it to activate the gas defenses.
(SELECT ONE: Release Zerg in Cages – or – Gas the Room)
Dominion Marine: What the hell? Who opened the cages?
Kerrigan: Now we’ve got the zerg to deal with.
Raynor: Still, it evened the odds. Let’s go!
Kerrigan: We made it! The tram is about to leave.
Valerian: Jim, we’re in full retreat. I’m en route to the Hyperion.
Raynor: Roger that, Valerian. Hail us when you’re on the bridge.
Kerrigan: Just you and me now, Jim. Let’s move out.
Umojan Marine: The Dominion have breached the tunnel.
Raynor: The tram’s picking up pace! Stay frosty kids! We’re outta the labs. We’re exposed out here until we reach the shuttle bay.
Kerrigan: I can see the bay! We’re almost there! A siege tank! I can take it out with a kinetic blast.
Umojan Marine: The Dominion is deploying some kind of heavy mech in the shuttle bay. Move out! We have to hold them off until the evacuation is complete!
Raynor: Almost there. Let’s follow these guys to the shuttle bay.
Archangel: Archangel in position. I’ve got the shuttle bay secured. All Dominion forces, push forward!
Kerrigan: Jim, the Archangel is between us and your shuttle!
(The bridge is destroyed)
Raynor: Dammit! Sarah, I’ll find another way to you.
Kerrigan: Well you better hurry, or I’ll kill this thing without you.
Archangel: Engagin the enemy! Target’s locked, drop the pods.
Kerrigan: This is a good time for a kinetic blast.
Archangel: Drop-pods incoming!
Kerrigan: Hurry up, Jim. I think another wave is incoming.
Jim Raynor: Sarah, I’m cut off. I can’t get to your location. Take my ship and go.
Kerrigan: We just found each other again. I am not leaving you behind.
Valerian: Raynor, Kerrigan! I’m on the Hyperion, we’re setting course for the rendezvous. What is your status?
Raynor: Kerrigan is taking my drop ship. I need extraction.
Valerian: I understand and I’m sending a team for you.
Kerrigan: Do not screw this up, Valerian.
Valerian: Kerrigan, I’ll see you at the rendezvous. And … I’m sorry I didn’t listen to you sooner.
Kerrigan: It’s too late for apologies, Valerian. Jim, I’ll take your ship, but if you get yourself killed … you’re in huge trouble.
Raynor: Yes’m. Noted.
Valerian: Jim, Dominion reinforcements are arriving. The Hyperion is taking heavy fire and my team can’t reach you.
Raynor: Roger that. Get the Hyperion to the rendezvous! I’ll find another way off world.
Valerian: See you there.
(Door is destroyed)
Nova: Well well. Jim Raynor.
Nova: If you’d helped me with my Tosh problem, I might have looked the other way while you got out. But you chose poorly!
Raynor: Alright, Blondie, take your shot!

With the disappearance of the Queen of Blades, the zerg Swarm has been shattered.
Jim Raynor’s rebel forces have smuggled Sarah Kerrigan off Char, leaving the planet to General Warfield and the Dominion. Meanwhile, the powerful Xel’naga artifact has disappeared.
In a hidden base in the Umojan Protectorate, Raynor and Prince Valerian have begun conducting tests to ensure that Kerrigan’s return to humanity is complete.
But they are running out of time. Throughout the sector, Emperor Mengsk’s forces carry out a relentless hunt for the Dominion’s most hated enemy: Sarah Kerrigan.

RESEARCH STATION EB-103
19:46 – Local Time
Jim Raynor: Open the door, son.
Umojan Marine: Valerian’s orders, sir. No visit-
Jim Raynor: Open the door.
Valerian Mengsk: Good Morning, Commander.
Jim Raynor: Junior.
Adjutant: Gentlemen, the test protocol will begin in two minutes.
Jim Raynor: Make the most of this test. It’s your last one … Now give us a minute.
Valerian Mengsk: Very well.
Jim Raynor: We’re getting out of here tonight, darlin’.
Kerrigan: Good. Then we can go after Mengsk.
Jim Raynor: Forget Mengsk. Forget all of it! This is about you and me.
Kerrigan: Until Mengsk is dead, there can’t be a “you and me.”
Jim Raynor: I moved heaven and earth to bring you back, Sarah! I can’t watch you throw that away just for revenge!
Adjutant: Initiating test phase two.
Jim Raynor: I never gave up on you, Sarah! Don’t you give up on us!
Adjutant: Test phase two, commencing.
Mission: Lab Rat
Kerrigan: What are you hoping to get out of these tests, Valerian? I told you I don’t remember anything about being the Queen of Blades.
Valerian Mengsk: We have to find out how much of the zerg mutagen is left in your system. I appreciate your cooperation, Kerrigan.
Kerrigan: Do you usually keep cooperative people in a containment cell?
Valerian Mengsk: When we know it’s safe, I’ll unlock your door myself. Now, can you reach out with your mind? Do you sense it?
Kerrigan: A drone? Are you really asking me to take control of a zerg mind? Do you know what could happen?
Valerian Mengsk: All the test subjects are in a secure environment. Are you able to control it?
[Left-Click to Select]
Kerrigan: Yea, I have it.
Valerian Mengsk: Okay. The next step: See if you can order the drone to mutate into a hatchery.
[Mutate Hatchery Here]
Adjutant: A hatchery is the central structure of a zerg base. It spreads creep, so that other structures can be built. The hatchery also produces larvae, which you use to morph into more drones or other zerg creatures. When you use larvae, the hatchery will replenish them over time.
Valerian Mengsk: Okay, Kerrigan, I’m releasing more drones into the test chamber. See if you can order them to gather those resources.
Adjutant: Select drones by left-clicking. Then right-click on a mineral field. This will order them to start harvesting minerals.
Valerian Mengsk: You’re doing well, Kerrigan. Can you morph more drones?
Kerrigan: I need an overlord to morph anything else.
Valerian Mengsk: Do it then. One overlord shouldn’t hurt.
Adjutant: The zerg use overlords to generate more supply. Your current supply maximum is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen along with how much supply you are currently using. If you do not have enough available supply, you will not be able to morph a unit.
Valerian Mengsk: Excellent. I planned to stop here, but let’s take this a little further. Try mutating a drone into a spawning pool.
Adjutant: The spawning pool allows the hatchery to turn larvae into zerglings.
Kerrigan: You know this is going to end badly, right?
Valerian Mengsk: We have a controlled environment.
Kerrigan: The spawning pool is finished. You should go down to the test chamber and inspect it.
Valerian Mengsk: Ah, I can see just fine from up here, thanks. I think that’s all we need today, Kerrigan. Great work.
Kerrigan: If you think that was great work, wait ’til you see this. I’ll make some zerglings …
[Main Objectives: Morph Zerglings (0/6)]
Valerian Mengsk: Kerrigan, what are you doing?
Kerrigan: Putting your controlled environment to the test.
Valerian Mengsk: Stop! I didn’t ask you to create zerglings!
Kerrigan: Funny thing about zerg, Valerian. They never do what you expect.
[Alert sirens start]
Valerian Mengsk: Shut down the experiment. Get sentry bots in there to sanitize those holding cells! Lockdown on the sublevel and power up the Eradicator! Nothing gets out!
[Main Objective: Destroy the Eradicator]
Kerrigan: Maybe if I destroy your pretty Eradicator, you’ll learn you can’t control the zerg. Those sentry bots are destroying the zerglings in their pens. I can change that … I sense more zerglings in holding pens! Valerian, you were very careless! Perhaps I’ll free them too…
[Bonus Objectives: Release Zerglings from Pens (0/3)]
Adjutant: Containment breach. Zerg specimens free.
Valerian Mengsk: Evacuate the scientists! Get all personnel out of there!
Kerrigan: More zerglings. Good, I can use them.
Valerian Mengsk: Kerrigan! This is not a game!
Kerrigan: It never is with the zerg.
Umojan Scientist: Zerg! Run!
Valerian Mengsk: Dammit, get all personnel off that level!
Adjutant: No more personnel remain on sublevel.
Valerian Mengsk: It’s all … out of control.
Adjutant: Containment door closed. Automated gas defense activated.
Kerrigan: That containment door won’t open until I destroy those turrets! The door’s open. Now to destroy the Eradicator. You have more zerglings here? Well, they’re mine now.
Valerian Mengsk: You’ve made your point, Kerrigan!
Kerrigan: Not yet I haven’t. I’m still in your containment cell.
Adjutant: Eradicator activated.
Adjutant: Eradicator destroyed. Situation critical.
Valerian Mengsk: The zerg have overrun the sublevel. You’re lucky no one was killed, Kerrigan.
Kerrigan: Luck had nothing to do with it. And maybe now you understand how dangerous the zerg are. I’ll send them back to their pens.
Valerian Mengsk: I appreciate that. I’m opening your cell right now, if you’d like to join me. And perhaps next time you can make your point without destroying half the facility?
