Back in the Saddle – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Single Player Transcript
Valerian: Jim, do you read me?
Kerrigan: We read you.
Valerian: Kerrigan, I’m glad you’re alive. But we’re cut off from your location. You’ll have to fight your way across the lab to the tram station. That will take you to Jim’s ship.
Raynor: Roger that, Junior. We can handle it. Back in the saddle. Let’s move out.
Kerrigan: Marauder ahead! I’ll take him out with a kinetic blast.
Raynor: Hostiles on the right!
Umojan Marine: Dominion insertion team! Help us take them out!
Umojan Scientist: Raynor, Kerrigan! This recovery terminal will heal you and restore some of your energy! Good luck, I’m getting out of here!
Raynor: Looks like this thing is all out of juice. Dead end. Let’s head back. Not gettin’ out this way either.
Kerrigan: Those marines are clustered pretty tight. I should be able to handle them all with crushing grip.
Umojan Marine: The way is clear! Move out!
Valerian: Another wave of Dominion insertion teams incoming!
Kerrigan: Look up! Where are the Umojans going?
Raynor: Let’ em go their way, we’ll go ours. Almost to the tram station. It’ll take us right to the shuttle bay.
Umojan Marine: The corridor is blocked! You’ll have to cut through the sublevel to reach the tram.
Raynor: Come in, Valerian. The main corridor is blocked. Can you open side door A-twelve?
Valerian: I can. Be ready though, the zerg specimens got loose in the attack.
Kerrigan: Yes, I can sense them down there. But I don’t think I should control them again.
Raynor: I won’t ask you to do that. We’ll handle them.
Valerian: The door will open in … Three. Two. One!
Umojan Marine: Too many zerglings!
(Kerrigan and Raynor take the elevator)
Nova: Kerrigan, my forces have taken control of the security hub. We are putting this facility on lockdown. Make this easy on everyone and surrender now.
Kerrigan: They’re trying to trap us.
Raynor: C’mon, darlin’. We gotta make it through those doors!
Kerrigan: This reminds me of the old days.
Raynor: My hair’s got more grey in it.
Kerrigan: And my hair’s got more zerg.
Kerrigan: We made it!
Valerian: Keep moving! They’re about to seal the area!
Kerrigan: An ultralisk. Let’s see how it likes a kinetic blast!
Raynor: It’s a mess down here.
Kerrigan: We’ve been through worse together.
Dominion Ghost: Target Acquired! Located Kerrigan and Raynor!
Raynor: Lord, woman, how many zerglings did you make?
Kerrigan: Yeah, I may have gone a little overboard.
Raynor: Destroy the debris! We got to reach that door. We made it!
Kerrigan: Are you surprised?
Valerian: Keep going! There’s only one more door between you and the tram station!
Kerrigan: I sense a lot of Dominion in the next room.
Raynor: Looks like a rough fight.
Kerrigan: They have caged zerg in there. We can use this console to set them loose.
Raynor: Or we can use it to activate the gas defenses.
(SELECT ONE: Release Zerg in Cages – or – Gas the Room)
Dominion Marine: What the hell? Who opened the cages?
Kerrigan: Now we’ve got the zerg to deal with.
Raynor: Still, it evened the odds. Let’s go!
Kerrigan: We made it! The tram is about to leave.
Valerian: Jim, we’re in full retreat. I’m en route to the Hyperion.
Raynor: Roger that, Valerian. Hail us when you’re on the bridge.
Kerrigan: Just you and me now, Jim. Let’s move out.
Umojan Marine: The Dominion have breached the tunnel.
Raynor: The tram’s picking up pace! Stay frosty kids! We’re outta the labs. We’re exposed out here until we reach the shuttle bay.
Kerrigan: I can see the bay! We’re almost there! A siege tank! I can take it out with a kinetic blast.
Umojan Marine: The Dominion is deploying some kind of heavy mech in the shuttle bay. Move out! We have to hold them off until the evacuation is complete!
Raynor: Almost there. Let’s follow these guys to the shuttle bay.
Archangel: Archangel in position. I’ve got the shuttle bay secured. All Dominion forces, push forward!
Kerrigan: Jim, the Archangel is between us and your shuttle!
(The bridge is destroyed)
Raynor: Dammit! Sarah, I’ll find another way to you.
Kerrigan: Well you better hurry, or I’ll kill this thing without you.
Archangel: Engagin the enemy! Target’s locked, drop the pods.
Kerrigan: This is a good time for a kinetic blast.
Archangel: Drop-pods incoming!
Kerrigan: Hurry up, Jim. I think another wave is incoming.
Jim Raynor: Sarah, I’m cut off. I can’t get to your location. Take my ship and go.
Kerrigan: We just found each other again. I am not leaving you behind.
Valerian: Raynor, Kerrigan! I’m on the Hyperion, we’re setting course for the rendezvous. What is your status?
Raynor: Kerrigan is taking my drop ship. I need extraction.
Valerian: I understand and I’m sending a team for you.
Kerrigan: Do not screw this up, Valerian.
Valerian: Kerrigan, I’ll see you at the rendezvous. And … I’m sorry I didn’t listen to you sooner.
Kerrigan: It’s too late for apologies, Valerian. Jim, I’ll take your ship, but if you get yourself killed … you’re in huge trouble.
Raynor: Yes’m. Noted.
Valerian: Jim, Dominion reinforcements are arriving. The Hyperion is taking heavy fire and my team can’t reach you.
Raynor: Roger that. Get the Hyperion to the rendezvous! I’ll find another way off world.
Valerian: See you there.
(Door is destroyed)
Nova: Well well. Jim Raynor.
Nova: If you’d helped me with my Tosh problem, I might have looked the other way while you got out. But you chose poorly!
Raynor: Alright, Blondie, take your shot!
