Omega | StarCraft: Brood War (Zerg #10)

Infested platform over the planet Char; Kerrigan’s base of operations.


BRIEFING

Kerrigan: Cerebrate, our scouts have just identified three separate fleets approaching this platform. With Duran having disappeared, and the bulk of my broods still on the surface of Char, you’ll need to hold off the invaders by yourself.

Mengsk: You sound worried, Kerrigan. Have I caught you at a bad time?

Kerrigan: Not at all, Arcturus. How’d you manage to scrape up your new fleet? Been raiding the salvage dumps again?

Mengsk: I called in a few favors. Made a few concessions. You’d be surprised to see how many special interest groups in this sector want to see you dead.

Kerrigan: I’m sorry to have to disappoint your new friends, Arcturus. But you really shouldn’t have attempted this stunt. It’ll take more than your three little fleets to bring me down.

Mengsk: Three fleets?

Kerrigan: Don’t play dumb, Arcturus. I’ve already spotted the other two fleets.

Artanis: Kerrigan, this is Artanis. My brethren and I have come to avenge the deaths of Fenix, the Matriarch, and all of the other Protoss who fell before the Swarm! It is long past time you paid for your crimes against our people.

Kerrigan: When it rains, it pours…

Mengsk: Hah ha ha… The Protoss, too! Care to take a guess as to who the third fleet is?

Kerrigan: No need to guess. It’s DuGalle and the remainder of the UED fleet.

DuGalle: That is correct, Kerrigan. This is Admiral DuGalle. I am giving you one last chance to surrender your forces, and submit to the sovereign authority of the United Earth Directorate.

Kerrigan: Gee, that’s a tough one, Admiral. You’ll have to let me think for a minute… You know, Admiral, I think I’ll just massacre your remaining troops now and watch you die in agony. How would that be?

DuGalle: You vastly underestimate me, my dear.

Kerrigan: I don’t think so, Admiral. You see, at this point… I’m pretty much the Queen Bitch of the Universe. And not all of your little soldiers or space ships will stand in my way again.

DuGalle: So be it.

Kerrigan: You’re not in a position to offer me anything, Admiral. And I don’t take prisoners. I’ll tell you what… Turn your remaining ships around and start heading back towards the Earth. I’ll let you have a head start, before I send the Swarms after you. It’ll be interesting sport to see how far you get before you die.

These 2 Siege Tanks might be a problem. The one in high ground can be taken out with a Guardian or a Queen to minimize the amount of Hydralisks lost. Or you can draw fire with an Ultralisk while moving in Hydralisks by the edge of the high ground.

As units die, replace with Zerglings to reach out Bunkers and Siege Tanks at high speeds in overwhelming numbers, while your Hydralisks range from afar, and Ultralisks draw fire. Bring Overlords to detect Wraiths, Ghosts and a load of Spider Mines.

If you lose too many minions, you can retreat to regroup, and bring the smackdown with 12+ Guardians and 12+ Devourers.

But you should do well with what you have.

Load Ultralisks and Hydralisks inside Overlords and transport them to this high ground where there are 2 Command Centers with Nuclear Silos.

Build 10 Ultralisks as the supply limit (200/200) allows if you go below 160/200.

Destroy the last Terran Dominion base which is south of those Command Centers with silos.

Mengsk: Congratulations, Kerrigan. You’ve beaten me again. Just remember that I’ll be out there… waiting for you to slip up. Because sooner or later you’ll make a mistake. And when you do…
