In 2502, Golarath was dispatched to the Protoss Advance/Experimental Facility alongside fellow zealots Akam and Ruom. This task involved the delivery of a sample of creep for the Furinax scientists present. However, his superiors deemed that it was prudent that the trio remain on guard in the facility, Ruom and Golarath to have access to the sample at all times. Mistakes had occurred before and the protoss' superiors did not wish for them to be repeated. However, an accident still occurred, specifically the creep sample "erupting" while he and Ruom were about to take a tissue sample. As the creep grew, Golarath cut off his psionic appendages, eventually falling to his own psi-blades.
