After the Destruction of Korhal, Norad II, commanded by then-Colonel Edmund Duke, was making a routine patrol near the border with the Umojan Protectorate shortly after the destruction of Korhal when it received a communication from a mole onboard the Sons of Korhal battlecruiser, the Hyperion.
The Norad II ambushed the Hyperion from warp space, preventing it from attempting to escape. He ordered a squad of soldiers to board the Hyperion, along with a secret agent. The plan went awry when Mengsk's forces killed his troops and the Hyperion outmaneuvered and heavily damaged the Norad II using a startling tactic. Duke believed it would take months to fix the hole in his ship.
The Great WarEdit
With the outbreak of the Great War, the Norad II was one of the first Confederate ships to travel to Chau Sara and Mar Sara after the former world was purified by the protoss, carrying Universe News Network reporter Michael Liberty. It took part in a clumsy counterattack on the protoss, who were heading towards Mar Sara. The protoss evaded battle before it could reach range to deploy its Wraith squadron, which the Confederacy claimed was a victory for the terrans.
If the unit name is changed in StarEdit, the rank changes from "Edmund Duke" to "Admiral". For example, in To Chain the Beast, one can see Gerard DuGalle, even though it is just another battlecruiser using the portrait of Duke.
- The fate of the Norad II is unclear, as various sources conflict on this point. According to Liberty's Crusade, the Norad II self-destructed on Antiga Prime. According to the game itself, however, the Norad II survived its crash and participated in a battle over Tarsonis. According to Shadow of the Xel'Naga, the Norad II was refitted and renamed as Norad III, apparently retconning its destruction in Liberty's Crusade.
- North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a joint Canadian/United States military organization.
- The Norad II appears in artwork for StarCraft: Ghost. Strangely enough, it features a UED logo on its wing.
