With the Protoss forces beaten and scattered, the Overmind has withdrawn the Swarms to the remote ash world of Char.
Overmind: I am well pleased young Cerebrate, and so long as my prize remains intact, I shall remain pleased. Thus, its life and yours shall be made as one. As it prospers, so shall you. For you are part of the Swarm. If ever your flesh should fail, that flesh shall be made anew. That is my covenant with all Cerebrates.
Now you have grown strong enough to bear the rigors of warp travel with the Swarm. Thus we shall make our exit from this blasted world and secure the Chrysalis within the Hive cluster, upon the planet Char.
Zasz: Remnants of the Protoss fleet still linger within this planet’s orbit. They will attempt to block our exodus at every turn.
Daggoth: My Brood shall aid you, Cerebrate, should you require assistance.
ZERG CAMPAIGN: OVERMIND
The Swarms have crushed the meager human resistance and laid waste to nine of the thirteen Terran worlds.
Shortly after the fall of the Terran capitol world of Tarsonis, the main Protoss fleet abandoned the Terran Sector.
Now, efforts continue on Tarsonis to weed out the remaining Protoss forces.

Coronation of Arcturus I, Emperor of the Terran Dominion
Terran Dominion Homeworld Korhal
Adjutant: The fleet has lost contact with the ground forces at New Gettysburg. General Mengsk has ordered the immediate disengagement of the Korhal fleet from the Tarsonian system. Protoss and Zerg forces continue to battle across the core continent of Tarsonis. Receiving incoming transmission:
Raynor: I can’t believe he actually left her down there! I’m gone, and you’d better come with me. There’s no tellin’ who Arcturus’ll screw over next.
Adjutant: Receiving incoming transmission:
Mengsk: Gentlemen, you’ve done very well, but remember that we’ve still got a job to do. The seeds of a new Empire have been sewn, and if we hope to reap–
Raynor: Aw, to hell with you!
Mengsk: You’re making a terrible mistake. Don’t even think to cross me. I’ve sacrificed too much to let this fall apart.
Raynor: You mean like you sacrificed Kerrigan?
Mengsk: You’ll regret that. You don’t seem to realize my situation here. I will not be stopped. Not by you, or the Confederates, or the Protoss or anyone! I will rule this sector or see it burnt to ashes around me. If you try to get in my —
Adjutant: The fleet is prepped and ready, Commander. Awaiting orders.
Raynor: The hell with him. We’re gone.
Adjutant: It appears that General Duke has successfully activated Tarsonis’ primary defensive weapon, the Ion Cannon. The Cannon must be shut down if any escape attempt is to be made.
Sons of Korhal Wraith Squadron Bravo
Mission: Assault Confederate Space Platform
High Orbit: Confederate Capital World Tarsonis
The Zerg, lured by the Psi Emitter’s signal, descended upon the unsuspecting Confederate forces and annihilated them.
Once again, the Protoss fleet, under the command of High Templar Tassadar, arrived and incinerated the planet.
Adjuntant: Commander, our position has been discovered. As of two hours ago, a large Confederate strike force arrived on Antiga Prime and established a base camp within our defensive perimeter. Arcturus Mengsk is calling a meeting.
Mengsk: Greetings. I know you’re all concerned about the Confederate strike force, but first we have a grave matter to discuss. It seems our data discs didn’t hold weapon designs after all. Lieutenant Kerrigan will explain.
Kerrigan: You all know that the Confederates run a program for psychically gifted humans, training them to be Ghosts. Those running the program found that the Zerg are attuned to the psychic emanations of Ghosts.
Raynor: So the Zerg are here for you, darlin’? This keeps gettin’ better and better.
Kerrigan: Shut up. There’s been a lot of secret Confederate research surrounding Ghosts and the Zerg. What we stole was a small but critical piece of the puzzle: designs for a Transplanar Psionic Waveform Emitter. The emitters broadcast the neural imprint of a Ghost, but at a much greater magnitude. These things reach across worlds.
Mengsk: The Confederacy used these Psi Emitters to lure the Zerg into isolated containment areas. Your colony — Mar Sara — Commander, was one such location.
Raynor: What are you saying?
Mengsk: I’m saying the Zerg are a secret weapon developed by the Confederacy. I’m saying you were all subjects of a Confederate weapons test.
Just as they destroyed Korhal with nuclear weapons to establish dominance a generation ago, they would use the Zerg to put an end to their other rivals. Only this time there’d be no outrage; who could suspet the aliens were their creation? No, they’d be lauded as heroes for coming in and destroying the Zerg. It’s time the Confederacy paid for its crimes.
And I just know the way. Lieutenant Kerrigan is going to plant an emitter at the Confederate base camp. Commander, you will provide her with an escort. When the Zerg arrive, they’ll break the blockade for us and we’ll make our escape. Now get moving.
Adjutant: It appears that the Confederates are in a state of panic about the Antigan revolt. I’m picking up a high number of Confederate transmissions going back and forth between their outposts and their headquarters on Tarsonis. Most of the transmissions are heavily coded, but wait, here’s something:
Duke: This is General Duke calling from Alpha Squadron flagship Norad II! We’ve crash-landed and are being hit hard by the Zerg! Request immediate backup from anyone receiving this signal! Repeat, this is a priority one distress call–
Raynor: Zerg? Here? Serves’ em right. ‘Bout time they got a taste of what it’s like to be in there mixin’ it up.
Mengsk: Jim, I want you to move in and save that base.
Raynor: I’m positive I didn’t hear that right.
Kerrigan: Arcturus, have you lost your mind?
Mengsk: Listen, I know Duke’s a cold hearted bastard but an entire colony shouldn’t have to suffer for that. Besides, a Confederate general could prove to be a powerful ally. This is an opportunity we cannot miss.
Kerrigan: I don’t like this at all.
Mengsk: I’m not asking you to like it. I’m asking you to do it.
Kerrigan: Yes, sir.
Raynor: Great. Let’s get this over with.
