The following section contains information from StarCraft: Retribution.

The Outback is a desolate region on Aridas. It featured a Dominion outpost which was attacked by the zerg. Holding the line for five days, its defenders were eventually overcome, having run out of resources.

In response, Commander Jenson Archimedes dictated that the region be returned to terran control in order to prevent the zerg from gaining vital locations. In this the Dominion was successful.
