Later Events Edit
Jake Ramsey and his team are hired by Valerian Mengsk to excavate a strange artifact on the world of Nemaka. He discovers a protoss preserver, Zamara, who embeds herself in his mind. From her, he learns much about protoss history. However, this knowledge makes him a target for Valerian Mengsk. He and his companion Rosemary Dahl took shelter with crime lord Ethan Stewart at the independent world of Dead Man's Rock, only to be betrayed by Stewart. Unleashing a  psionic distraction to escape from Stewart and the Dominion, Ramsey draws the attention of Infested Kerrigan and the powerful dark archon, Ulrezaj. The former's forces devastate Dead Man's Rock and she infests Stewart. Ramsey travels to Aiur to collect technology, becoming embroiled in a civil war between Ulrezaj's minions and Khalai loyalists stranded on the planet, all the while dodging the zerg. He manages to escape through a warp gate, intending to travel to Shakuras. 
Ramsey ends up far from Shakuras. He and Zamara locate Zeratul and convince him to help separate them. They also discuss a number of secrets, including the life cycle of the xel'naga and the creation of the hybrids. Zeratul brings them to a shrine on Ehlna, a Nerazim sanctuary where Ramsey's life could be saved, while he traveled to Pegasus, observing an energy creature hatching from a fresh temple and following it to a wormhole with a mysterious planet at the end. Meanwhile, Rosemary Dahl and a protoss force led by Selendis arrive at the shrine, while forces under the command of Ethan Stewart, Valerian Mengsk, Selendis and the dark archon converge on the site and fight over Ramsey. Zamara is successfully removed, only to immediately seal Ulrezaj into her crystal. Stewart is killed in combat, and the Dominion achieves victory. Valerian Mengsk is able to protect Ramsey from his father and also kept some knowledge from the shrine he had acquired before the protoss returns in force and drive the Dominion away. 
A Möebius Foundation research team on KL-2 accidentally release a malevolent entity from a xel'naga-crafted prison, who bends the scientists to its will. Protoss forces arrive soon after and do battle with the entity's minions. Despite their assumptions to the contrary, the entity escapes their wrath. 
Misc. Events Edit
The Terran Dominion colony of Agria is attacked by pirates who hoped to steal its hi-tech equipment. The Dominion defense forces defeated them, but many colonists were killed in the crossfire.
The timeline provided in
places the events of StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils and The Dark Templar Saga in 2503. This stands in contrast to comments made by Ghost/ StarCraft: Ghost: Spectres Chris Metzen, who placed the saga in the same year as (many months, if not a year before it) StarCraft II and the saga itself.  
The next article in this series is 2504.
