The following article is a timeline of the major events of the StarCraft universe. Additional data is located in individual year articles.

OverviewEdit

It is important to note that relatively few absolute dates have been given throughout the StarCraft series, events often being portrayed as being relative to other events as opposed to having a definite point of occurrence. However, of the dates that have been given, it is possible to construct a timeline of the universe, using these dates as focal points. In addition, large timeframes of a thousand years or more had been rounded up/down to approximate dates.

A timeline was published in StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils.[1] Similar timelines have been published in subsequent novels.[2][3]

TimelineEdit

Pre-HistoryEdit

Age of CreationEdit

Main article: Age of Creation
  • According to ancient protoss texts, the xel'naga, an extra-galactic race obsessed with the seeding of life, arrived in the Milky Way galaxy tens of millions of years ago, establishing their domain and seeding life on various worlds.[4]

The following section contains timeline information which isn't necessarily in chronological order.

  • The xel'naga discover/create the Argus Stone, holding it in high regard for its immense power. Their scholars meanwhile indirectly predict the events of the Great War.[5]
  • The xel'naga discover an evil entity which had consumed entire civilizations. The xel'naga defeated it, and instead of destroying it, they imprison it within a barren planet orbiting the dead star KL-2 using the power of the Void.[6]

The Last CycleEdit

  • The xel'naga life cycle was coming to its natural conclusion; the xel'naga were long-lived but not immortal. In order to continue the species, they would find a species with purity of form and one with purity of essence and modify them. Eventually, these two species would evolve and naturally merge, becoming the new incarnation of the xel'naga.[7]
  • Frustrated with their failure to find or create a species with distinct purity of form, the xel'naga turn their attention to Aiur. Pleased with the progress of its dominant species, the xel'naga name them the protoss ("Firstborn") and commence observation which lasts hundreds of protoss generations.[4]
  • Eventually, frustrated at the slow rate of protoss evolution, the xel'naga subtly guide their development for a millennium, leading them to the state of total sentience and awareness. Delighted, the xel'naga make themselves known to their creations.[4]
  • Protoss civilization spreads across Aiur within a few thousand years. However, as more emphasis is placed on individual achievement than communal advancement, the protoss begin to revert to tribalism. Distrust of the xel'naga begins to brew, and the protoss begin to lose their innate psionic link.[4]
  • The xel'naga depart from Aiur, disappointed with the protoss[4] although they had transformed the protoss into what they needed.[7] As the xel'naga leave, protoss attack their worldships but fail to stop them. Many hundreds of xel'naga were killed. Disheartened at their departure, the protoss tribes turn on each other, each blaming their counterparts for their mentors’ departure. Thus begins the Aeon of Strife.[4]
  • The xel'naga head for the planet Zerus. Seeking to create an individual with a distinct purity of essence, they begin developing the race of miniature insectoids known as the zerg. Attempting to waylay the potential hazards of competing egos, they create the Overmind -- a collected zerg sentience. However, the Overmind sends its minions to attack the xel'naga, destroying the greater whole of them.[4] This throws the xel'naga's plans for the continuation of their own species into turmoil.[7]

Aeon of StrifeEdit

Main article: Aeon of Strife
  • The various protoss tribes fight a massive civil war.
    • During this time, the protoss maintained colonies on other planets, often connected by warp gates, but these too quickly became gripped with the Strife.[8]
    • The protoss tribes descended into something resembling madness as they attacked one another. One example was the Mendella Incident, where the mainly underground settlement of Mendella was flooded when another protoss faction deliberately destroyed a nearby reservoir.[9]
    • The protoss lose most of their technology. Only the Shelak Tribe maintains some sanity. Two members, Khas and Temlaa, left the tribe, discovered the khaydarin crystals and, through them, the missing psionic link. Khas later learns much about the protoss and xel'naga from an artifact found underground. Khas uses the findings to bring an end to the Aeon of Strife.[10]
    • Khas demonstrated the powers of the khaydarin crystals at Gyras, where he ended the feuding by destroying the battleground.[11]

The Second AgeEdit

  • The protoss culture unifies, with the Templar Caste initially fighting to protect the new culture from those who disagree with it.[12]

The RoguesEdit

Main article: Discord
  • In 1500,[1] the Conclave, led by Kortanul, orders Adun to capture and execute a group of heretics known as the Dark Templar. Adun secretly teaches the rogues to hide from the Conclave instead, but this backfires as storms erupt over Aiur.[12] The Khalis crystal was stolen by the retreating Rogues.[15] The Conclave banishes the rogues from Aiur, and in his final attempt to protect them, Adun loses his life.[12]

Journeys Through the VoidEdit

  • Shortly afterward, the Dark Templar discover the moon of Ehlna, which has a warp gate created by the xel'naga as well as a unique combination of energies which modify the khaydarin crystals found there into memory storage devices. Without preservers, the Dark Templar desired these, so they constructed a shrine, the Alys'aril there. Centuries later, the protoss moved on, but left a number of alysaar there so Dark Templar could return and have their memories stored.[7]

The following section contains timeline information which isn't necessarily in chronological order.

  • One young alysaar, Ulrezaj, accessed forbidden knowledge at the Alys'aril, which he hoped to use to defeat the protoss of Aiur. He was discovered by his superiors and left, raging against those who exiled his kind.[7]
  • The Dark Templar eventually discover Shakuras, a world which the xel'naga had visited. In addition to a warp gate, it features a xel'naga temple. The Dark Templar settle there.[16]

Golden Age of ExpansionEdit

  • The protoss begin the Golden Age of Expansion,[17] eventually claiming one eighth of the worlds previously claimed by the xel'naga. They put these worlds under the Dae'Uhl.[4]

Arrival of the TerransEdit

Supercarriers SC2 Art1

The supercarriers leave Earth.

  • Doran Routhe conducts an experiment involving 40,000 prisoners, whom he loads onto four supercarriers bound for the outlying world of Gantris VI. The lead supercarrier, the Nagglfar, carries the AI ATLAS.[4] The journey was botched however. One year later, the ships passed by Gantris VI without stopping.[15]

Rise of the ConfederacyEdit

  • Disputed Date:[note 2] Economic and military friction between the colonists of Moria and the Confederacy prompt the former to create a military organization, the Kel-Morian Combine, to oppose the Confederacy's attempted economic domination.[4] The two organizations clash frequently as the Confederacy repeatedly steals Kel-Morian mining claims.[21]

The Guild WarsEdit

Main article: Guild Wars
  • c. 2486 - the Confederacy discovers a zerg infestation in several Fringe Worlds. The Confederacy responds by exterminating the populace of those worlds with an engineered plague.[23][note 6]
  • Part of the plan involves creating a Special Tactics and Missions Platoon, led by Sergeant Findlay, which uses air-droppable Thunderstrike armor.
  • Mistrusting Sergeant Findlay, Vanderspool recruits Petty Officer Lisa Cassidy, a medic, to spy on the platoon in exchange for addictive crab.
  • As the platoon trains, Raynor volunteers to infiltrate the internment camp and warn the POWs of the coming rescue attempt so they could organize themselves. Once inside, he warns the POW but is discovered and tortured by Overseer Brucker. Raynor manages to fool him into thinking the attack won't be coming for two weeks. However, neither he nor fellow prisoner Cole Hickson tell him anything about neural resocialization.
  • Sergeant Findlay leads the rescue attempt, rescuing Raynor and Hickson. Petty Officer Cassidy murders Overseer Brucker, making it look like a heart attack... after delivering a revenge message from Colonel Vanderspool.
  • The STM platoon and POWs flee in stolen Kel-Morian vehicles. They do battle with the Snakehead Kommando near a mineral stripper before finally being rescued by Confederate forces.
  • Findlay's warriors are given the nickname "Heaven's Devils".
  • Vanderspool discovers Sergeant Findlay's squad has stolen "his" treasure trucks and plots revenge. Findlay and Raynor discover this and plot their own scheme to steal Vanderspool's ardeon crystals.
  • At Korsy, the plan goes awry due to Pax's double-cross. The Confederates lose the treasure. Vanderspool's attempts to kill Findlay's men fail, and they flee. A three-sided battle erupts between Vanderspool, Findlay and Pax's men.
  • Findlay's men are mostly killed through various means. Vanderspool is captured by Pax. Findlay's men kill both groups. Jim Raynor and Tychus Findlay go AWOL.[24]
  • 2489 - the Guild Wars come to an end with a Confederate victory.[21][1]

Aftermath of the Guild Wars: Forging of RebelsEdit

  • 2489 - Angus Mengsk declares the independence of Korhal; the Confederacy responds by declaring a state of emergency. Arcturus Mengsk travels to Umoja due to a "family emergency"; he becomes aware of the existence of his own son, Valerian.[21] The Confederacy dispatches ghosts to assassinate Angus Mengsk.[4]
  • As a response to the Guild Wars[4] and the assassination of Angus Mengsk, the Umojans form their own military body, the Umojan Protectorate. Arcturus Mengsk takes command of the Rebellion of Korhal, seeking revenge for the murder of his family. He also sends Valerian to a haven to keep him safe from Confederate reprisal.[21]

Prelude to the Great WarEdit

  • c. 2498 - the Confederacy secretly abducts and resocializes citizens in order to increase the size of its military forces.[27][note 11]
PurificationChauSara SC2 Art1

The protoss burned Chau Sara

  • 2499, December 8th - Tassadar's fleet arrives and burns Chau Sara of all life.[4]

    • He traveled to Samiku, rescuing Martul and other zealots, but wished to avoid fighting the zerg, which he saw as a sentient species.
    • The Moratun traveled to Aiur after the evacuation, where Juras became aware of the true horror of the zerg. With little information about the location of the protoss evacuees, Juras took the fleet of motherships in search of the protoss.[19]

The Brood War took place in the year 2500.[1]

Protoss Retreat and Zerg Civil War (Phase One)Edit

300px|thumb|The UED Expeditionary Fleet arrives in the sector. The United Earth Directorate Expeditionary Fleet reaches the Koprulu Sector. Admiral Gerard DuGalle forces Vice Admiral Alexei Stukov to watch a "live test" of the zerg, unleashing them upon an unsuspecting terran colony.[91]

Main article: The Stand
  • Escape from Aiur: Artanis, Aldaris and Zeratul plan the evacuation of Aiur through a warp gate. They would travel to Shakuras in order to escape the zerg. Fenix and Raynor defend the Aiur side of the gate.[92]
  • Dunes of Shakuras: Some zerg were able to follow the protoss to Shakuras, where the refugees would establish a settlement, New Antioch.[93] Raynor and Fenix were able to regain control of their side of the gate to apprise Artanis of their situation. He promised them as many warriors as he could spare.[94]
  • Stranded on Aiur: Three days after the evacuation commenced, Jim Raynor, Fenix and Ladranix shut down the gate. Raynor deliberately damaged it with his rifle to prevent it from reactivating. The protoss left on Aiur scattered into several groups.[12]
  • Legacy of the Xel'Naga: The protoss refugees struck an alliance with Raszagal, not knowing she was already under the control of Kerrigan. Raszagal told them of a powerful weapon, the xel'naga temple of Shakuras, which could be used to scour the zerg from Shakuras. However, the temple could only be activated by the two lost crystals, Uraj and Khalis, and Raszagal called for the destruction of the two cerebrates around the temple. The protoss attack was a success.[16]
  • Kerrigan made a surprise appearance,[16] striking an alliance with the protoss as well. She was trying to avoid domination by the second Overmind on Char. The protoss commanders reluctantly accepted her aid except for Aldaris, who left the meeting.[95]
  • Aldaris' Revolt: Aldaris discerned Kerrigan's control of Raszagal and raised a legion to fight her forces. The Fleet of the Matriarch arrived during the insurgency. Raszagal demanded the insurgents be defeated.[98] The Matriarch's partisans defeated Aldaris' forces, but he refused to surrender,[99] instead partially revealing Kerrigan's machinations. He was cut off by Kerrigan's forces. She gloated that she had used the protoss to fight her enemies for her.[100] The protoss attack on the zerg on Shakuras, while necessary for their survival, would only further Kerrigan's aims.[101]

UED Invasion of the Koprulu SectorEdit

Main article: The Iron Fist
  • UED Skirmish on Tarsonis: A team sent to Tarsonis discovered the psi disrupter. Duran cautioned DuGalle that the weapon was too dangerous, since it could fall into Dominion hands, while Stukov vehemently insisted the UED capture the weapon. DuGalle agreed with Duran,[109] and sent him with a small team to fight the zerg hive clusters surrounding it. Duran's forces achieved success, but he had to hand the destruction of the Disrupter to ghosts who claimed they would handle it.[108]
  • Raid on Aiur: The UED force travels to Aiur, hoping to catch the fugitives. While a captain dealt with the fugitives, Duran and Stukov were entrusted with keeping the zerg away from the operation. The fugitives hide near a warp gate, which attracts the attention of nearby zerg, driving them into a frenzy. The captain's forces destroy Raynor's hideout, prompting them to flee towards the warp gate. As they do so, Duran moves his forces out of position, enabling a massive wave of zerg to interfere with the UED's attack. Mengsk and Raynor escape. Stukov leaves to take care of personal business.[112]
  • First Raid on the Psi Disrupter: Stukov reconstructs the psi disrupter on Braxis. DuGalle is shocked. Duran is able to convince DuGalle that Stukov was sabotaging their mission. DuGalle orders Duran to deal with the problem.[113] Duran leads a infantry team into the Disrupter, finding and shooting Stukov, then vanishes. Stukov contacts DuGalle and gives him his final words, warning him that Duran is a traitor and possibly infested as well.[114] Meanwhile, Duran set the Disrupter's power core to explode and numerous zerg minions invaded the structure. DuGalle orders the troops to find save the Disrupter. They were successful. The Disrupter was left on Braxis with a garrison to protect it.[115]
  • The Capture of the Overmind: With the power of a fully functional Disrupter behind him, DuGalle's forces attacked Char, defeating and capturing the forces of the Overmind. Kerrigan and Duran pay him a visit. Kerrigan tells DuGalle she intends to take control of the zerg back from him.[116]

Zerg Civil War (Phase Two)Edit

  • Tarsonis Zerg Revolt: Kerrigan and Duran invite their new allies, Raynor and Fenix, to the primary hive cluster on Tarsonis. Kerrigan is interrupted by losing control of some of her zerg minions, due to the effects of the psi disrupter. She uses her troops, including Hunter Killers, to regain control of her hives.[118]
  • The Liberation of Korhal: Kerrigan's zerg, Raynor's Raiders and Fenix's forces launch a combined assault on the UED at Korhal, with Kerrigan's forces leading the way. The UED is unable to effectively counterattack with its own zerg minions and is defeated.[121]
  • Betrayal on Korhal: Kerrigan and Duran engineer a double cross against their allies, attacking their bases as they rest after the previous battle. Duke and Fenix are both killed,[122] leading Raynor to vow revenge on Kerrigan.[123] The zerg forces leave without finishing off their opponents, as Kerrigan said she was tired of the slaughter.[124]
  • Second UED Raid on Tarsonis: The UED launches a counterattack against Kerrigan's primary hive cluster on Tarsonis. They use "scientists" to coordinate their zerg minions.[125] Kerrigan is caught off-guard but manages to prevail by slaying all the scientists.[126]
  • Destruction of Talematros: Kerrigan brings her forces to Shakuras. She tells Duran to kidnap Raszagal without informing him of her reasons. Raszagal was located at Talematros, which was heavily defended by special pylon clusters which prevented zerg flyers from maneuvering. Duran destroys the city and the zerg make off with Raszagal in the confusion.[127]
  • Destruction of the Overmind: Zeratul and other protoss forces follow Raszagal to Char. Kerrigan offers Zeratul a deal; slay the Overmind for her, and she will allow Raszagal to return. Raszagal herself convinces Zeratul to join Kerrigan against their common enemy.[128] The UED/zerg force is defeated by Kerrigan and the Dark Templar, and the Overmind slain.[129] Its cerebrates are killed as well[130] by the Dark Templar which had been manipulated by Kerrigan.[131] Raszagal, now obviously being mentally influenced by Kerrigan, refuses to return,[132] so Zeratul abducts her and flees.
  • The Reckoning: Zeratul hides Raszagal in a stasis cell as Kerrigan brings her forces to the surface of Char in order to find her. The zerg defeat the protoss,[133] prompting Zeratul to slay Raszagal.[134] An amused Kerrigan allows him to escape alive.

Main article: Dark Origin
  • Battle of Char Aleph: Kerrigan was left in a weak position, as most of her forces were still on the surface of Char. Duran had disappeared as well. She was greeted by the commanders of three fleets[136]—Mengsk, who brought a collection of special interest groups as he was now too weak to use his own forces,[137] Artanis, and DuGalle. Kerrigan defeats all three forces,[136] prompting DuGalle to retreat. Kerrigan said she'd see how far he'd get before she killed him and all his men.[138] DuGalle commits suicide[139] as the zerg catch up to his fleet.[140]
  • Kerrigan feels a looming threat.[141]

2501Edit

Main article: 2501
  • 2501:[1] The Terran Dominion adds team-based training concepts to the Ghost Academy. One team, Team Blue, consisted of leader Gabriel Tosh and "star" recruit Nova Terra. The son of Finance Minister Aldeo Cistler, Aal, is introduced to the Academy, but is quickly thrown out after making another trainee, Lio Travski, sick with a drug overdose.[149] Aal Cistler exposes the Academy's amoral practices. With the backing of senators, he was readmitted to the Academy. Two teams (including Team Blue and Cistler) were combined and sent on an advanced training mission to The Baker's Dozen, the location of a quartet of Old Family survivors.[148]
  • Battle of Shi: The team rescued the heirs, but lost the commanders of their battlecruiser. Gabriel Tosh was severely injured. Afterward, the team (other than Tosh) were memory wiped and the heirs secretly executed.[150]

2502Edit

Main article: 2502
  • 2502: A month before the anniversary of the Terran Dominion, A Dominion marine force traveling to Candore takes an embedded news reporter, Kate Lockwell, with them. They wipe out civilians allied with the Knights of Freedom rebel movement there, which Lockwell discovers. The Dominion marines tried to kill her to eliminate the story, but are themselves killed by the Knights of Freedom. Lockwell gives one copy of the footage to rebel reporter Michael Liberty but keeps the other copy. She later gives a heavily pro-Dominion report on the massacre, blaming it on rebels. Liberty plans to reveal the proper footage on the upcoming anniversary.[151]
  • Jim Raynor networked and struck alliances with anti-Dominion groups. He meets with the Kel-Morian Combine leadership at Moria. He doesn't stay long, however. The Combine would value the alliance and would cover for him after he left.[143]
  • Terran Dominion official Tamsen Cauley, spurred by a comment from Arcturus Mengsk, again tries to eliminate the War Pigs. First he collects them for a mission which he believes will aid his ascension—the assassination of Jim Raynor. Then he activates the secret Cerberus Program, which he will use to terminate the War Pigs after they have killed Raynor.[47]
  • Three months after Jim Raynor left Moria, the War Pigs arrive, asking questions. The Kel-Morian Combine attacks them. After their escape, Cerberus Program troops led by Lars Trakken, assigned to follow the War Pigs, ask the same questions in a more "aggressive" manner, resulting in the deaths of Kel-Morian personnel.[143] The War Pigs had picked up a xel'naga artifact while unknowingly being pursued by Cerberus forces. Hunting for Jim Raynor, the Pigs learned that their target was taking shelter on zerg-infested worlds. A team of Dark Templar friendly to Raynor encountered the War Pigs, took the xel'naga artifact and warned the War Pigs not to harm Raynor.[152]
  • Raynor's Raiders hid in an underwater cave on the zerg-infested Urona Sigma.[153] The protoss believed the fight against the zerg there was hopeless, so the Dark Templar trio which had picked up the xel'naga artifact from the War Pigs arrived there to warn him about an impending purification operation[154] as well as the attack by the War Pigs.[153]
Purification SC-Com6 Comic1

Purification of Urona Sigma

  • October 25, Battle of Urona Sigma:[30] The arrival of the War Pigs stalled the Raiders' departure. The lead War Pig, Cole Hickson, was an old friend of Raynor, who trusted him, but Hickson had been modified by neural resocialization to assassinate Raynor on the orders of Tamsen Cauley.[153] Hickson's first attempt failed due to the zerg discovering the Raiders' hideout, but this enabled him to escape, and separated Raynor from his dropships. Simultaneous attacks by Cerberus Program forces led by Lars Trakken cut the War Pigs off from their own transport vessel. Raynor managed to subdue Hickson when the latter tried to kill him again, but Raynor and the War Pigs found themselves stranded on Urona Sigma as the purification operation began.[154] The beams struck near them. However, Lars Trakken was unable to overcome his rage at Hickson and descended in a dropship with a squad of Cerberus troops. Raynor and the War Pigs fooled and defeated them, stealing the dropship and escaping, but at the cost of one of the War Pigs. The protoss, meanwhile, had only conducted a partial purification of Urona Sigma.[30]
  • A group of protoss scientists experiment with a virus which could destroy the creep and with it the entire zerg race. However, the experiment goes awry, tainting the Khala and creating an infested protoss.

The Dark Templar SagaEdit

Main article: The Dark Templar Saga
  • Battle of Dead Man's Rock: Ramsey and Dahl fled from Stewart's compound in a system runner, pursued by Stewart's fleet and a Dominion fleet commanded by Valerian Mengsk. Unleashing a psionic distraction to escape from Stewart and the Dominion, Ramsey draws the attention of Infested Kerrigan and the powerful dark archon, Ulrezaj. The former's forces devastate Dead Man's Rock and she infests Stewart.[12]
  • Battle of Aiur Caverns/Battle of the Gate: Ramsey travels to Aiur to collect technology, becoming embroiled in a civil war between Ulrezaj's minions and Khalai loyalists stranded on the planet, all the while dodging the zerg and suffering from brain tumors from Zamara's presence. He manages to escape through a warp gate, intending to travel to Shakuras.[12]
  • Ramsey ends up far from Shakuras, which had sealed its gate to keep the zerg out. He and Zamara locate Zeratul and convince him to help separate them. They also discuss a number of secrets, including the life cycle of the xel'naga and the creation of the hybrids. Zeratul brings them to a shrine on Ehlna, a Nerazim sanctuary where Ramsey's life could be saved, while he traveled to Pegasus, observing an energy creature hatching from a fresh temple and following it to a wormhole with a mysterious planet at the end.[7]
  • Battle of Ehlna: Meanwhile, Rosemary Dahl and a protoss force led by Selendis arrived at the shrine, while forces under the command of Ethan Stewart, Valerian Mengsk, Selendis and the dark archon converged on the site and fought over Ramsey. Zamara was successfully removed, only to immediately seal Ulrezaj into her crystal. Stewart was killed in combat, and the Dominion achieved victory. Valerian Mengsk was able to protect Ramsey from his father and also kept some knowledge from the shrine he had acquired before the protoss came back in force and drove the Dominion away.[7]

The Spectre RebellionEdit

  • Spectre Rebellion: Gabriel Tosh plans to recruit former Team Blue members Kath Toom and Nova Terra with help from Project Shadowblade members General Cole Bennett and Lio Travski. Travski, now an AI, falsifies a transmission from Arcturus Mengsk, summoning Toom to investigate terrorist activity near a terrazine refinery at Altara. She is captured by Shadowblade and brought to Gehenna Station.[163]
    • Mengsk dispatches wrangler Malcolm Kelerchian to investigate her disappearance. He reaches the refinery, but it explodes. He is wounded and stuck in his ship.[163]
    • Nova Terra is attached to Nova Squadron, under Colonel Jackson Hauler, and they are dispatched to Altara to rescue the wrangler. The zerg reach the refinery site first. Terra and Nova Squadron defeat the zerg and rescue Kelerchian. During the battle, Terra is exposed to terrazine and begins to suffer from its effects. In addition, her powers increase.[163]
    • Terra, Kelerchian and a ghost, Talen Holt, investigate the area. In reality, Holt is a spectre, and attempts to redirect Terra.[163]
    • Project Shadowblade attacks Mengsk's Palace, attempting to capture Emperor Mengsk. Terra and a team of ghosts are rushed there. Nova Squadron and the special forces unit, the Annihilators, also assist. Terra and her ghosts are attacked by spectres led by Gabriel Tosh. Tosh tries to recruit Terra, but fails. The ghosts are either killed or kidnapped, but Terra survives and is able to protect Mengsk.[163]
    • Hauler captures Terra and Kelerchian, and has the latter transported to Gehenna Station. Hauler and Bennett are, in fact, the same person, and Bennett is a spectre. He orders her to capture Mengsk. She pretends to agree in order to save Kelerchian from execution.[163]
    • Some of Hauler's crew try to murder Terra, but this prompts Lio Travski to contact her and help her escape. Travski now aids her against Shadowblade, such as getting her to Gehenna Station and letting her communicate with the Annihilators. They plan to attack Gehenna Station.[163]
    • Aboard the station, Terra encounters Kath Toom, now a spectre, and defeats her. As she frees Kelerchian, General Bennett kills Toom and attempts to frame Terra for it. Terra and Bennett have their final clash in a room full of psionic waveform indoctrinators, which are filled with resocialized marines being transformed into spectres. During the battle, Bennett reveals he has killed Toom and framed Terra for the murder. He forces her into an indoctrinator. Travski reveals the deception to Tosh, who attacks Bennett. This battle enables Terra to escape and kill Bennett.[163]
    • Terra and Kelerchian escape. Tosh takes six indoctrinators and escapes on the Palatine. The Annihilators destroy Gehenna Station with nuclear weaponry.[163]
    • Nova Terra eventually captured and imprisoned many of its members in New Folsom Prison.[164]
    • Gabriel Tosh ends up at Deadman's Port. His reputation is so dangerous the mercenaries there avoid him.[165]

Zeratul's TravelsEdit

"I have pierced the veil of the future and beheld only... oblivion. Yet one spark of hope remains. You will hold her life in your hands...And though justice demands that she die for her crimes, only she can save us."

- Zeratul delivers a warning to Jim Raynor(src)

Zeratul SC2 Game1

Zeratul investigates ruins

  • Zeratul discovers Ulaan, a dying xel'naga world, now infested by the zerg. He is confronted by Kerrigan. The two battle while exchanging views; both are injured. Zeratul escaped.[171] Zeratul discovers three xel'naga prophecies. He manages to escape to his ship, the Void Seeker.[172]

Zeratul travels to Zhakul seeking a trio of preservers to interpret the prophecy. However, the Zhakul Guardians had been corrupted by Maar, a powerful hybrid. Maar was draining the energies of the preservers. Zeratul's forces were forced to confront and defeat the Zhakul Guardians. Maar himself was killed and the preservers freed. The preservers interpreted the prophecy, suggesting the Overmind may hold more answers.[13]

Zeratul returned to Aiur and sought the site of the Overmind's death. There, he was able to access some of its memories. He also made contact with the spirit of Tassadar, which claimed it wasn't dead, and gave him a vision of a possible future:[173] Kerrigan had been killed, leaving Amon and his hybrid minions to take control of the zerg. The hybrids and zerg would defeat the protoss on Shakuras, ensuring their extinction. Afterward the zerg would themselves be wiped out.[174]

Raynor returns to Mar Sara

The Raid on Chanuk is fought. The Players' Club pirates try to sabotage a Kel-Morian Combine operation. The Kel-Morians were supported by the Terran Dominion, which had its own clashes with the pirates. The battle was eventually won by the abandoned miners, with help from a lone Dominion marauder, Isaac White.[176]

Second Great WarEdit

Wings of LibertyEdit

"Make no mistake... War is coming. With all its glory... and all its horror."
The Second Great War extends from 2504 to 2505. Wings of Liberty and Flashpoint occur in the former year, while Heart of the Swarm takes place in the latter one.[177]
According to Egon Stetmann's research log, several missions in Wings of Liberty took place in early October.[178]
This timeline only takes into account missions which must be completed in order to win Wings of Liberty. Optional missions, even those which are regarded as A canon, are not included, as they can be completed at almost any time, making their place in the timeline unclear.
  • October 7, Smash and Grab:[178] Raynor's Raiders made a bid for a second alien artifact piece from Monlyth. The artifact was defended bythe Tal'darim. The zerg were also there to contest the piece. Raynor's Raiders cut a path through Tal'darim defenses and collected the artifact before the zerg could get to it.[187]
    • The Dig: The Moebius Foundation tried but failed to acquire another artifact hidden within a heavily-defended xel'naga temple on Xil. Raynor's Raiders were called in to do the job. The temple was defended by the Tal'darim, which made an attempt to defend the artifact. However, the Raiders made off with the artifact.[188]
      • Raynor was surprised by Zeratul aboard the Hyperion. He gave him an Ihan crystal which contained his memories of his search for the truth behind the xel'naga prophecies.[189]
    • The Moebius Factor: Kerrigan made another play for the artifacts. She personally led an invasion of Tyrador VIII, where the Moebius Foundation was based. Their own forces had managed to evacuate for the most part, but were unable to destroy their data cores which would reveal the locations of the rest of the artifacts. Raynor's Raiders were hired to destroy the data cores before Kerrigan could get to them. The Raiders were successful in this action.[190] However, this close call with Kerrigan caused Raynor to fall into a depression.[191]
    • Supernova: The next artifact was located on Typhon XI. As the Hyperion neared the planet, the star it orbited began to fall into a supernova. Raynor's Raiders had to quickly descend, fight their way past Tal'darim and make off with the artifact before the planet was consumed. The Raiders once again stole an artifact from the Tal'darim.[192]
      • The Raiders, expecting to meet to meet with the Moebius Foundation, instead came across a Dominion fleet, led by its flagship, the Bucephalus. Raynor and Findlay invaded the Bucephalus, intending to kill Mengsk. Instead, Raynor found Crown Prince Valerian Mengsk, who offered to work with him in order to rescue Kerrigan from her infestation.[193]
    • Maw of the Void: Raynor's Raiders located the last piece of the artifact on a xel'naga worldship, located in the Sigma Quadrant, occupied by the Tal'darim. The Raiders made off with the last piece.[194]
      • Raynor's alliance with a portion of the Dominion was unpopular. It nearly sparked a mutiny led by Tychus Findlay and Kachinsky. Raynor defeated a drunken Findlay in a bar, then pointed out his revolution was about saving people. Making Kerrigan human again would accomplish that goal, even though it meant working with Valerian.[195]
    • Battle of Char: Taking half of the Dominion fleet, Valerian intends to enhance his stature by ending the threat posed by Kerrigan. The initial invasion of Char immediately fell into trouble, however, with an early zerg attack,[196] the scattering of Dominion forces[197] and the near-loss of General Horace Warfield.[198]
    • Having weakened the zerg forces, Raynor's Raiders made a final stand against Kerrigan. The assembled xel'naga device could be used to attack the zerg, even as it fully charged up for its main purpose: the deinfestation of Kerrigan. The Raiders held their ground long enough to activate the device.[199]
      • A helpless and human Kerrigan was found by marines led by Raynor. Findlay attempted to kill Kerrigan on Mengsk's orders, but was stopped and shot dead by Raynor.[200][201]
      • Most of Kerrigan's forces had yet to return to Char on their leviathans and died fighting each other in the void. Many of Kerrigan's brood mothers, sensing her weakness, moved their broods throughout the Koprulu Sector.[202]

Flashpoint ConflictEdit

Main article: Flashpoint Conflict

Raynor and the partially deinfested Kerrigan flee the planet with the artifact, but have to be picked up by the Bucephalus. The Hyperion and Valerian Mengsk's fleet are confronted by the undamaged half of the Dominion fleet led by Arcturus Mengsk in the White Star. Arcturus demanded Valerian hand over Kerrigan, but Valerian refused, as he had knowledge of the prophecy, and wanted to take Kerrigan to see Emil Narud, a specialist on the zerg. During the ensuing battle, Valerian's fleet is damaged further but manages to escape. However, Arcturus's fleet is able to pursue because it had planted trackers on the Bucephalus. The fleet skirmishes reduces the refugees to just the Hyperion and the Bucephalus.[203]

  • Raynor suggests hiding out at Dead Man's Rock, under the protection of Mira Han. They hide their ships in a junkyard there, and Dr. Narud joins them there. While there, Kerrigan's health worsens, both physically and mentally. She tried to remove her "hair". Her powers began to return, warning her of an ambush planned by Gary Crane (one of Han's men). Raynor, Valerian, Horner, Kerrigan and Narud escape, but Horner is injured. Han takes revenge by attacking Crane. As the group leaves Dead Man's Rock, Kerrigan makes it clear she does not trust Narud or his scientists.[203]
  • The rebel ships travel to the Kirkegaard Belt, home of the secret Moebius Foundation station, Space Station Prometheus. As the ships slowly traversed the dangerous belt, with assistance from repair teams sent by Narud, Valerian, Raynor, Kerrigan and Egon Stetmann traveled ahead there. Stetmann talks with Dr. Chantal de Vries while Kerrigan undergoes preliminary tests. Narud invited Raynor and Valerian to dinner, but it turned into an ambush. He and Arcturus Mengsk were in contact. During the skirmish, Narud cloaked and fled. The two rebel battlecruisers could not help due to sabotage from the "repair" teams, and had to first reverse the sabotage, a task made more difficult because the Dominion fleet had shown up and was attacking.[203]
  • Raynor intended to rescue Kerrigan and Stetmann before leaving. Kerrigan broke out of her lab and rescued Stetmann. During Raynor's flight, he was attacked by Narud's marines as well as a pair of hybrids that Narud had kept stored. Mengsk contacted the station, telling Raynor and Valerian to surrender. He'd let them live, as long as Kerrigan died. Kerrigan flew into a rage at hearing Mengsk's voice. She used her powers to destroy the hybrids, terrifying Stetmann. The reunited Raiders (plus Valerian) tried to stop Narud from escaping with the artifact, but he got away. During the battle, Kerrigan killed numerous marines but wasn't dominating another hybrid when the Fanfare, a newly-armed Raiders dropship, arrived to rescue them. During the battle, Kerrigan's powers killed one of the Raiders.[203]
  • The Raiders were worried about Kerrigan. Valerian offered a top-secret Umojan Protectorate orbital platform, where the battlecruisers could finally be repaired, as well as treatment for Kerrigan. Kerrigan swore revenge on Arcturus Mengsk.[203] The rebels reached the platform in late 2504.[204]
  • Valerian tests Kerrigan, but she grows tired of the routines.[205]

Heart of the SwarmEdit

Main article: Heart of the Swarm

The Dominion attack occurred in early 2505.[204]

  • Lab Rat: Valerian tests Kerrigan's ability to control zerg. Kerrigan warns him not to trust the zerg ... by creating a swarm of zerglings which run amok.[206]
  • Back in the Saddle: A Dominion force, led by Nova Terra, attacked Research Station EB-103.[207] Kerrigan and Raynor try to fight their way out to escape. Valerian escapes to the Hyperion but during the battle Raynor is cut off from Kerrigan and encounters Nova.[208]
  • Rendezvous: Kerrigan lands on Phaethon, hoping to meet Raynor there. She notes a Dominion base which could destroy Raynor's ship as he escapes. She joins forces with Broodmother Naktul and her brood, who are happy to have the Queen of Blades returned to them. Kerrigan isn't pleased, but uses them to destroy the Dominion force.[209] As Kerrigan plans to leave the zerg behind, she sees a Universal News Network announcement that Raynor had been captured and executed by the Dominion. In a rage, she rejoins the zerg.[210]
Plot branch : Kerrigan travels to Kaldir

Kerrigan travels to Kaldir, seeking Broodmother Nafash and her brood. She harvests ursadon essence to develop resistance to the planet's cold weather. The local protoss forces do not have this resistance. Their Expedition Leader attempts to contact the Golden Armada to arrive and kill Kerrigan, but Kerrigan cuts off his communications.[211] The zerg also capture Lasarra during the battle.[212] Kerrigan uses trickery to destroy the protoss escape vessel.[213]

Plot branch : Kerrigan travels to Char
  • Domination: Kerrigan returned to Char in order to collect the Zagara Brood. She engaged in a race with Broodmother Zagara, who defied her, to collect the feral baneling eggs. Kerrigan came out on top and forced Zagara to submit to her.[214]
  • Fire in the Sky: Kerrigan then moved against Warfield and his forces. In order to reach his base at Dauntless Plateau, the zerg needed to move through the Bone Trench. Zagara's previous attack had failed because Warfield used Gorgon battlecruisers to annihilate her attacking forces. Kerrigan decided to take advantage of scourge nests in the area, which could produce enough scourges to take out a battlecruiser before running out of vital energy. Warfield launched seven Gorgon battlecruisers, but all were defeated by the zerg. Warfield called for a retreat.[215]
  • Old Soldiers: Kerrigan followed up the victory by destroying Warfield's base.[216] An injured Warfield asked for Kerrigan to let his wounded escape. Kerrigan agreed to this after his death.[217]
Plot branch ends here

Zeratul slipped aboard Kerrigan's leviathan and confronted her there. They had a brief battle, with Kerrigan seeming to have the upper hand, until Zeratul implanted a psychic vision in her. It showed his previous trip to Zerus, still home to the primal zerg.[218] He admitted that he was steering Kerrigan there for his own purposes, but she resolved to go in order to increase her personal power, which would let her take down Mengsk.[219]

  • Waking the Ancient: Kerrigan took her leviathan to Zerus. There she encountered the primal zerg. She decided to awaken Zurvan, the Ancient One, who had witnessed the creation of the Overmind, but was opposed by Brakk, a pack leader who despised her "broken" zerg. Kerrigan's forces awoke Zurvan and slew Brakk, however.[220] While speaking to Zurvan, she learned about Amon, the fallen xel'naga, and his manipulations of the Overmind.[221][222]
  • The Crucible: Following Zurvan's instructions, Kerrigan decided to become a primal zerg. She would travel to the first spawning pool and absorb its energies. While in her cocoon, the remnants of Brakk's Pack attacked, along with Yagdra and his pack. During the three-way battle, Brakk's Pack was wiped out and Yagdra's defeated.[223] Kerrigan awoke as the Primal Queen of Blades.[224]
  • Supreme: Kerrigan then moved to unify all the primal zerg under her rule. She struck an alliance with Dehaka[219] and moved against Yagdra, Kraith and Slivan. She defeated all three and collected her essence. Then Zurvan turned against her, saying whichever of them won would collect the other's essence. Kerrigan defeated him too.[225]

Kerrigan received a communication from Mengsk. He declared that Raynor was in fact alive, but would be executed if Kerrigan brought her Swarm anywhere near him.[212]

Plot branch : Kerrigan travels to Skygeirr Station
  • Infested: A mysterious figure contacted Kerrigan, telling her about a Dominion hybrid program based at Skygeirr Station. Kerrigan ordered her other broods to the location, so they could be nearby.[226] Stukov revealed that he had been tortured here, and Kerrigan was the only person who he believed could help him.[226][227]
    • Kerrigan defeated the Dominion forces.[228]

  • Hand of Darkness: Broodmother Ryloth contacted the Swarm, saying she was impressed by Kerrigan. Kerrigan ordered Ryloth to destroy Jontur II, a Dominion ship-building world, with her brood.[212] Stukov informed Kerrigan that the lab was run by Doctor Emil Narud, a shapeshifter and the servant and creation of the deceased Amon. The zerg entered and fought the hybrid dominators.[229]
  • Phantoms of the Void: Kerrigan had touched Narud's mind in there. She was able to sense his devotion to Amon, and realized he had been trying to resurrect Amon for "millennia". Stukov believed the endless conflict between the zerg and the protoss was part of a plan to bring Amon back.[230] Stukov believed the xel'naga device's energy was collected by nearby hybrids, and used it to revive Amon.[227][231]
    • Kerrigan's forces defeated Narud.[232]
      • Kerrigan finally killed Narud, but he announced that Amon was already alive.[233]

Plot branch : Kerrigan travels to Dominion space
  • With Friends Like These...: Kerrigan linked up with Raynor's Raiders again. They believed that Colonel Orlan could help them hack the Dominion and discover Raynor's location. Orlan was the prisoner of Mira Han, but she refused to turn him over to anyone but Raynor, despite Raynor's predicament.
    • Horner and Valerian led the Raiders against her forces. While Valerian concentrated on establishing spaceports that could launch automated fighters and even battlecruisers, Horner took the Hyperion directly against Han. Eventually the battle resolved in Horner's favor. Han handed the prisoner over, who agreed to work for Horner in exchange for not being turned over to Han again.[234]
  • Conviction: Orlan's information revealed Raynor's location—the Moros, a prison ship. It randomly jumped through Dominion space, but was vulnerable when it needed resupply. Kerrigan invaded the vessel. During the battle, the ship began falling apart, requiring her leviathan to hold it together. Mengsk had no qualms about sacrificing the ship's crew to stop Kerrigan.[235]
    • When Kerrigan met Raynor, he was disgusted at her new appearance, and declared that their relationship was over.[236]
Plot branch ends here
Main article: Battle of Korhal
  • Planetfall: As Kerrigan's forces approach Korhal, Mengsk called upon his forces to return to Korhal and defend it.[237][238]
    • Kerrigan's invasion was confronted by the Korhalian defense network, which destroyed most of her drop pods. Kerrigan herself slipped onto the surface, and, surrounded by Dominion forces, fought to establish safe landing zones for bile launchers. These were used to destroy the defense network.[239]
  • Death from Above: Kerrigan was challenged by a Dominion superweapon, the Psi Destroyer. The weapon sat on a heavily-guarded platform and generated a field which destroyed the zerg by attacking their hivemind. Kerrigan's alliance with Dehaka proved pivotal in the battle. Dehaka and his primal zerg troops were immune to the weapon due to a lack of a hivemind, and they destroyed the power links which maintained the weapon. While the weapon lay powerless, Kerrigan's own zerg destroyed the Dominion defenses. In the end, Kerrigan's forces and the primal zerg overran the platform and destroyed the Psi Destroyer.[240]
  • The Reckoning: Valerian persuaded Kerrigan to allow the populace to flee in order to reduce civilian casualties, even though this put Kerrigan at a tactical disadvantage. Kerrigan's troops descended onto Augustgrad. Forces led by Dehaka, Stukov, Zagara tried to support her, but had to contend with the city's gates. In addition, Raynor's Raiders joined Kerrigan's assault, which came as a surprise to Kerrigan. Mengsk responded with elite forces, including the Odin which had previously been abandoned there, some of which tried to destroy Raynor personally. Eventually the zerg prevailed and, destroying a last minute-defense by the Sons of Korhal elite marines, destroyed the palace gates.[241] Kerrigan personally entered the palace and discovered Mengsk. As she attacked, he activated the xel'naga artifact which he had hidden in the room. This crippled Kerrigan. However, Raynor had followed her in, and he attacked Mengsk, destroying the control device. Kerrigan recovered and executed Mengsk. Afterward, she rose into the air to join her own forces. She intended to confront Amon.[242]

    Aldaris: "Tassadar of the Templar, by your actions you have severed yourself from the mercy of your brethren. You refused to destroy the Terran worlds as was commanded. You have questioned time and time again, the sacred will of the Conclave. And you have abandoned your Homeworld in its darkest hour. Most grievous of all is that you have allied yourself with the blasphemous Dark Ones, and learned to utilize their profane powers in tandem with our own! What say you, oh fallen Templar?"
    Tassadar: "Aldaris, I submit myself to the Conclave's judgment. But know this, given the same choices again, I would surely have made them. I have sacrificed all that our world might live. I have sullied my honor, I have discarded my rank and standing, and I have even broken our own most ancient traditions. But never think that I would, for one moment, regret my actions.

  98. Raszagal: "Congratulations, Executor. Your success has brought us the promise of hope against the Zerg. However, we face a new threat within our own ranks. In your absence, Judicator Aldaris and an entire legion of Khalai survivors from Aiur have begun an open revolt against us."
    Zeratul: "By the gods, this is ill news indeed! Why would Aldaris betray us so?"
    Raszagal: "He and his ilk believe that it was wrong to have abandoned Aiur and consorted with our people. Their prejudices have driven them to perpetuate the Conclave's sins against us! Even now, Aldaris and his loyalist templar forces are preparing to attack our Citadel."
    Artanis: "I can scarcely believe this. As if the Zerg were not enough! Matriarch, are you certain of this?"
    Raszagal: "All too certain, young templar. Executor, as Matriarch of the Dark Templar and custodian of this world, I hereby order you to terminate Judicator Aldaris, and quell this untimely uprising without delay!

    Alexei Stukov: "Intriguing. Lieutenant, you have absolutely no idea as to who we are or what we have come here to do. Why do you wish to side with us?"
    Duran: "Because my men and I have sworn to fight against the Dominion and its Emperor. Seeing as how your forces have been laying into this Dominion base, I figured we were on the same side."
    Stukov: "I see. How exactly do you propose to be of service to us, Lieutenant?"
    Duran: "Well, I possess intimate knowledge of the surrounding area. I can show you an alternate route that leads to the rear of the main Dominion base."

    Stukov: "But Admiral, this device could insure our victory over the Zerg! It is foolhardy to discard such an advantage!"
    Duran: "Surely, Vice Admiral, you don't doubt the tenacity of your own fleet? Your Directorate forces will devastate the zerg without the need for such a device."
    Stukov: "Listen here, Lieutenant, I've had just about enough of your-"
    DuGalle: "This conversation is over, Alexei. Given the true nature of our mission to enslave the Overmind, we could hardly stand to have Mengsk control a device of this magnitude.

    DuGalle: "Why would he abandon the battle on Aiur?"

    "Why has he come back to Braxis?"
    Duran: "I mean no offense, Admiral. But perhaps Stukov's loyalties are not as strong as you once believed."

    Adjutant: "Admiral, our sensors have detected a fully functional Psi Disrupter on the planet's surface directly below our position. It would appear that the Vice Admiral did not destroy the Psi Disrupter on Tarsonis as was ordered."
    DuGalle: "What? Impossible!"
    SDuran: "I warned you Admiral! Stukov has betrayed you! He's reconstructed the Psi Disrupter in order to sabotage your mission in this sector!"

He convinced you to destroy the Psi Disrupter... even though it was our best chance at defeating the Zerg. And then, on Aiur, ...he allowed the Zerg to overrun us even as we had the fugitives in our grasp. I came here... to activate the one hope we have of defeating them... And you killed me for it. Heh, heh... Duran is your enemy Gerard. I suspect... that he may even be infested as well... Use the Disrupter, Gerard... Finish our operation... Let my death have at least some meaning."

NotesEdit

  1. According to the manual, once the zerg discovered the terrans, it took sixty years for the Swarm to reach them.
  2. According to an image extracted from StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, the founding date of the Kel-Morian Combine is 2376. According to the StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils timeline, the Combine was founded in 2485. This conflicts with StarCraft: I, Mengsk, which has the Combine formed at least by 2478. The StarCraft manual is not clear on this point.
  3. Arcturus Mengsk graduated from school in the year '78, as stated in I, Mengsk.
  4. Time calculation derived from Sarah Kerrigan's age at the time of the incident in the listed sources. Kerrigan's age is given as twenty-six in the StarCraft manual. StarCraft started in 2499 according to numerous sources.
  5. The Guild Wars starts in 2485, according to the Heaven's Devils timeline.
  6. This incident took place five years before StarCraft: Uprising, which took place in 2491 according to the Heaven's Devils timeline.
  7. Heaven's Devils starts in 2488, according to the timeline and various date references scattered through the book. One event in the book, Jim Raynor's capture at KIC-36, was specified as taking place in 2488 in StarCraft: Issue 6.
  8. StarCraft: Issue 6 specifically identifies this event as taking place in 2488. Various pieces of information from Heaven's Devils places the invasion in November or December 2488. For instance, Universal News Network reporter Max Speer didn't become an embedded reporter until at least November 2488, and he was present as an embedded reporter at the battle. Clair Hobarth gave an interview about the battle in January 2489.
  9. Lisa Cassidy and Connor Ward both gave interviews in March 2489, and they both died in this battle. According to the Heaven's Devils timeline, this battle must have been fought in either 2488 or 2489.
  10. The battlecruiser crashed one year before the events of Uprising, which took place in 2491, according to the Heaven's Devils timeline.
  11. This incident took place one year before the events of StarCraft: Speed of Darkness, which coincided with events taking place in StarCraft Episode I in 2499.
  12. This event took place on Nova's 18th birthday, putting it in 2502 or 2503.
  13. The Koprulu sector norm for establishing dates is to go month/day/year, based on sources like StarCraft Episode I.
