Zerg-infested Char Aleph

Char Aleph is a space platform in near orbit over Char.

HistoryEdit

The platform was built by the Terran Confederacy to house the few maintenance teams for automated mining sites on Char after the Guild Wars. During the Great War, it was infested by the zerg and used as an orbital nesting site and hatchery.[1]

During the Brood War, Sarah Kerrigan made the platform her base of operations,[2] bringing Matriarch Raszagal there to use as leverage to get Dark Prelate Zeratul to kill the Overmind for her.[3] However, Zeratul circumvented Kerrigan's defenses and rescued Raszagal just as Samir Duran finished relocating Kerrigan's primary hive clusters to the platform.[4]

A Terran Dominion fleet under Emperor Arcturus Mengsk, a protoss armada under Praetor Artanis and the remainder of the United Earth Directorate's expeditionary fleet under Admiral Gerard DuGalle converged on the platform but were all defeated by Kerrigan's forces.[5]

Char Aleph

Aleph is the reconstructed name of the first letter of the Proto-Canaanite alphabet, and ancestor of the vowel A.

The space platform appears as a contestable territory in RISK: StarCraft.[6]

    Sarah Kerrigan: "Actually, Zeratul, she's not the one I'm truly interested in. I stole her to get to you. You see, I need you and your brethren to kill the Overmind for me. The only way I had of assuring your cooperation was to take away that which you value most. However, I give you my word that once you've killed the Overmind, I'll allow her to return to you."
    Zeratul: "As if your word held any value..."
    Raszagal: "Zeratul, my faithful servant. You must aid Kerrigan in this endeavor. The Overmind is our common enemy. It must be destroyed to insure that our people will survive!"
    Zeratul: "You ask me to aid this vile creature?"
    Raszagal: "I do not ask this for myself. Nor do I ask it on Kerrigan's behalf. I ask you to do this for our people, Zeratul. Obey me as you always have... Trust in my judgement."
