Kerrigan: Once again, I stand atop the broken bodies of my enemies. Victorious, but not unscarred.
The Earth-born Directorate has been destroyed; and the Overmind lies dead and trampled beneath the ashes of Char.
As for my unlikely allies, I think that I shall allow them a reprieve.
For in time, I will seek to test their resolve and their strengths.
They will all be mine in the end. For I am the Queen of Blades. None shall ever dispute my rule… again.
DuGalle: Dearest Helena. By now the news of our defeat has reached the Earth. The creatures we were sent here to tame are untamable… And the colonies we were sent to reclaim have proven to be stronger than we anticipated.
Whatever you may hear about what has happened out htere, know this: Alexei did not die a hero. I killed him… my pride killed him. And now my pride has consumed me as well.
You will never see me again, Helena.

Shortly after DuGalle’s defeat, the remainder of the UED Fleet was overtaken by Kerrigan’s forces and eradicated. No UED vessel ever made it back to Earth to report what had transpired.
With his rag-tag fleet beaten and crippled, Arcturus Mengsk fled back to Korhal to lick his wounds and plan the reconstruction of his Terran Dominion.
Artanis and the Protoss survivors returned to Shakuras to begin rebuilding their once glorious civilization…
Zeratul and James Raynor went their separate ways and have not been heard from since their departure.

Kerrigan could only stare off into the vastness of space where she beheld a great void. Or perhaps a reflection of a hollow victory and of the trials yet to come…
