The Death Fleet is a protoss fleet based on Slayn. Comprised of a number of Tal'darim vessels, it was constructed to serve Amon's will to eradicate all life in the sector at his command.[1] It later came to serve as the Tal'darim air force.


The Death Fleet was formed under the command of the Tal'darim Highlord, Ma'lash. The fleet maintained orbit over the Tal'darim homeworld of Slayn, ready to move at a moment's notice for a full scale invasion. The fleet comprised a number of destroyers, carriers, and motherships.

End WarEdit

During the End War, First Ascendant Alarak came to Slayn with Hierarch Artanis, and with his aid, overthrew Ma'lash to rule the Tal'darim. Under Alarak's command, the Death Fleet subsequently joined with the Daelaam to fight against Amon.[2] In the final stages of the End War, the Death Fleet finally arrived to Aiur with the Purifier, Nerazim and Khalai fleets. Together they bombarded Amon's host form, destroying it. Later, the Tal'darim fleet provided defense against Amon's zerg brood and the corrupted protoss of the Golden Armada, until the xel'naga Keystone activated, freeing the Templar.[3] Death Fleet ships were seen entering the Void alongside Artanis during the final assault against Amon, and Death Fleet Destroyers aided the Daelaam in their attack against Narud.[4]

In the war's aftermath, Alarak remained in command of the Death Fleet. At his direction, the Death Fleet struck at unsuspecting worlds, claiming their technology and resources.[5]

The Defenders of ManEdit

Years after the End War, the Death Fleet arrived at Tyrador IX to exterminate the Defenders of Man for destroying a remote Tal'darim outpost and then escaping before the Tal'darim could retaliate, though they were stopped by Dominion forces.[6] Alarak vowed retribution against the Defenders of Man, and struck a bargain with Nova Terra in order to locate them.[7]
