The Core Worlds are a group of planets within the Koprulu sector.

HistoryEdit

The core worlds were originally thirteen planets ruled over by the Terran Confederacy.[1][2][3] Their architecture was rather uniform.[4]

Unlike the fringe worlds, the core worlds were not characterized by location, but simply by their importance. (e.g. Mar Sara was both a fringe world[5] and core world).[2] Under the Confederacy, the Core Worlds often relied on exports to remain viable.[4] By the time of the Confederacy's fall however, nine of these worlds had been laid waste to by the zerg.[6]

Under the rule of the Terran Dominion, the term "core worlds" is still in use. With the zerg invasion in October 2504, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk pulled the Dominion Fleet back to protect these worlds.[7][8] They were fortified[9] and the First and Second Fleets combined to protect them.[10] Conscription stations opened across them after the defeat of the Kel-Morian Combine.[11]

NotesEdit

According to the manual of the original game and Overmind, the Confederacy consisted of "nearly a dozen" and "thirteen worlds" as a whole respectively. With the revealing of numerous other Confederate colonies, it appears that this number refers to the worlds of Confederecy itself, i.e. Core Worlds, since there were distinctions made in the original StarCraft between fringe colonies and main planets.
