"Sir! Dominion ships warping in! Mengsk's flagship is leading them!"
"Sweet mother of mercy."

- Matt Horner and Tychus Findlay upon seeing the Bucephalus and its battlecruiser escort.(src)

The Bucephalus was a Gorgon-class battlecruiser[2] serving as the Terran Dominion flagship during the Second Great War.

The ship's bridge is lavishly furnished, featuring paintings, a phonograph and a starmap. It serves as an observatory of sorts for Valerian Mengsk.[3]

The Bucephalus is larger than the Hyperion, a Behemoth-class battlecruiser.[2] It was developed to be an impressive flagship to replace the stolen Hyperion.[1]

The Bucephalus was constructed at the Ursa Shipyards, and commissioned in 2503. It was 560 meters long and 82.4 meters wide. A year later, it had a crew complement of 8,239 and was Emperor Arcturus Mengsk's flagship.[4]

Crown Prince Valerian Mengsk took the Bucephalus to the Moebius Foundation rendezvous point after Raynor's Raiders had retrieved part of a xel'naga artifact from Typhon XI. With its shields down, Commander Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay came aboard and battled Dominion marines. Raynor found Valerian, who offered him a chance to rescue Sarah Kerrigan.[4]

After the last piece of the artifact was recovered, the Bucephalus led half the Dominion Fleet to Char. Once the Bucephalus was in high orbit, Raynor and Valerian met with General Horace Warfield on the bridge. Valerian contacted his father from there to informed him of the undertaking. The Bucephalus was then caught in a zerg spoiler attack. Warfield told everyone to clear the bridge.[5]

NotesEdit

The ship's bridge
HawkiAdded by Hawki

Bucephalus was the horse of Alexander the Great. The Delphic oracle claimed the rider of Bucephalus would rule the world.

The bridge of the Bucephalus appears in Wings of Liberty cinematics. Its starmap model was repurposed from its counterpart on the Hyperion. The paintings featured in the cutscenes however, were done by Blizzard's art department rather than its cinematic one.[3]
