The ark shuttle is a type of protoss aerospace craft capable of travel through warp conduits. They are capable of operating within atmospheres[1] and entering warp space.[2]


During the initial Daelaam expedition to Kaldir, the colonists attempted to send shuttled through the planet's warp conduits to warn Shakuras of the reappearance of Sarah Kerrigan. However, Kerrigan was able to destroy the shuttles before they could escape the planet.[1]

This article or section contains information derived from Co-op Missions, and should not be considered part of the official StarCraft storyline.

During the End War, Amon used Kaldir's warp conduits to ferry shuttles and troops across the Koprulu sector and destroy the warp network from within. Cartwright and allied commanders were dispatched to Kaldir, and were able to destroy the shuttles before they escaped.[3]

Game UnitEdit

Ark shuttles (simply called "shuttles" in-game) appear in the Heart of the Swarm mission "Shoot the Messenger." Kerrigan must prevent these shuttles from entering the warp conduits, lest Shakuras be alerted to her presence on Kaldir. These shuttles are usually escorted by friendly units.[1]

Ark shuttles return in the Co-op Missions scenario "Void Launch," and are the main objective of the map. They come in waves and must be destroyed to accomplish the mission.[3]

Known Ark ShuttlesEdit


Map editor files refer to the ark shuttle as "frigate."
