The Gorgon is a class of advanced terran battlecruiser.[1]

OverviewEdit

The Gorgon was in production by 2503, and at least one, the Bucephalus, was designed to be a large and impressive flagship.[2] It came equipped with J23 missile launchers, crew-served batteries, point defense systems across the hull and a crew complement of nearly 6,000.[3]

During the Second Great War, General Horace Warfield defended the Dauntless Plateau by deploying Gorgons in the Bone Trench. He could only deploy one at a time, but it was enough to defeat the local zerg forces led by Broodmother Zagara.

When Sarah Kerrigan returned to Char, she took control of scourge nests and used the scourges within to destroy each of Warfield's seven Gorgons in turn. Her other forces found the Gorgons to be virtually invincible.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Gorgons appear in "Fire in the Sky." They cannot be targeted directly by the player. Instead, the player must use scourge nests to destroy them as a trigger. Gorgons steadily make their way across the map one at a time, firing on any player-controlled units they encounter.

DevelopmentEdit

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm which is no longer valid.

During development, the Gorgon was known as the "Gehenna cruiser."[4][5]

NotesEdit

The Bucephalus was originally described and shown as an older model of battlecruiser.[6] It was later clarified as being a Gorgon.[7][2]
