Backwater Station in 2504

Backwater Station was a town on Mar Sara.

It is situated in a small valley in the Hinterland,[1] south of Mount Jacobs and northeast of the Dust Bowl.[2]

Backwater Station and its surrounding area during the zerg attack

During the Great War, Backwater Station was a military base. A Confederate command center was located on an adjacent ridge to the east, although whether this can be considered part of the station proper is speculative, given its isolation and that it didn't appear on any maps of the area.[1]

On December 13, 2499, Backwater Station came under attack by the zerg. Its personnel took cover in bunkers. The station was saved by Marshal Jim Raynor and local militia forces sent in by the Colonial Magistrate. They were arrested by General Edmund Duke on the pretext of destroying Terran Confederacy property.[3]

The road to Backwater Station

Backwater Station became the center of Terran Dominion logistics on Mar Sara when Dominion forces set up a logistics headquarters in the town.[4] The Dominion forcibly shipped citizens from there to excavate a xel'naga artifact at White Rock Base.[5] The people of Backwater Station were anti-Dominion, but lacked weapons and organization. In 2504, shortly after the Dominion pulled troops out of the city, Raynor's Raiders moved to destroy their authority there. The locals assisted Raynor in destroying the logistics headquarters.[4] Raynor seized weapons and distributed them to the local populace.[6]

Zero HourEdit

The zerg landed on Mar Sara as Raynor and Tychus Findlay waited for transport off-world at Backwater Station. Raynor had his marines man bunkers and hold two bridges long enough for them to be extracted by the Hyperion.[7]
