Spawn Broodling, Ensnare, Gamete Meiosis

The queen's nest is a zerg structure composed of a festering mound of living organisms that live off creep and provide queens with the abilities of Spawn Broodling and Ensnare as well as Gamete Meiosis. Nurtured by the queen herself, these "children" in turn willingly sacrifice themselves to serve the Swarm as required. Once the queen's nest is present, the lair can continue on its evolutionary path to become a full hive.[1]

The former nydus warren/queen's nest

At some point, the queen's nest was in the StarCraft II game engine.[2] Its model was used by nydus warrens (now nydus network)[3] and was at one point represented by the roach warren.[4]
