    As Kerrigan's forces devour the surface of Umoja, we mop up the routed forces of the Kingston's fleet. Our spy over Tarsonis watches as the Morian forces take control of the former Confederate capital world. The Terrans have had an interesting day.

    Over all public Terran bands, a hologram of Kingston appears. His dark hair and severe features only serve to augment the look of malnutrition about him, as if he has been without food for long periods. His expression betrays a fury so hot, we are surprised that it does not fuse the imaging circuitry.

    "This will be brief. Today, humanity has been attacked by two foes. The first, the Zerg, are alien monsters. They are ravenous beasts controlled by a mind that wishes to consume our very flesh. They are a threat we have seen, battled against, and they are the threat that the Confederate Navy moved to engage when our Umojan brothers were attacked. I have just received word of our defeat. 22 billion human lives are being stalked as food among the ashes of Umoja.

    The second enemy to humanity...that threat was domestic. Upon seeing Confederate forces riding to their deaths in the maws of aliens, Mah Sakai and his Morian forces instead put Tarsonis in their sights. They have not just betrayed me. They have not just betrayed the Confederacy. They have betrayed our species. They have rendered Tarsonis and Moria both virtually defenseless against the insectoid invaders.

    Human life as it exists in the Koprulu Sector is finished. If you're listening, Cerebrate, I hope you'll see fit to spare my people, but I wouldn't stake my last dollar on that pony. I hope you're proud, Sakai. This day, you have killed us all. And still, you could not locate me, blinded as you are by age and pride.

    That is all."

    How are our standing forces after the sacking/taking of Umoja?

    Has our listening post in the Lutrious system detected anything noteworthy?

    Do our dropbservers in the system that we nabbed the Worldship from detecting UED movement anywhere?

    >How are our standing forces after the sacking/taking of Umoja?

    Pretty good, actually. We depleted a lot of our conventional Zerg forces, but most of the mantalisks came out alive. Warbrate is impressed. Our Protoss and Terrans assets, not having participated, are fine.

    >Has our listening post in the Lutrious system detected anything noteworthy?

    Not yet. If this thread stays this damn quiet, it might...

    >Do our dropbservers in the system that we nabbed the Worldship from detecting UED movement anywhere?

    Rescue efforts are done. Some shrines have been set up, and official investigations are claiming it's some kind of attack by the parasitic monsters that have leveled Directorate worlds.

    Also, fellow Zergquesters, we come to a turning point in the Terran/Zerg conflict. Kingston's forces probably consisting of isolated pockets of infantry and a network of spies across Terran space, and maybe handful of spaceworthy combat ships. The Kel-Morian Combine's battlefleet has suffered tremendous losses attempting to overpower the Tarsonis defense grid. Between us and VoidGate (prior to our forced extermination of VoidGate), the Confederacy's might spans all of about three star systems (two, now that Umoja has been annexed by Kerrigan).

    We probably still have many, many wings of nuclear missiles and many more decoys ready to fire. Our Terran space assets should be in good number, and we haven't used our Protoss ships in a loooong time.

    Barring any trump cards like the Psi-emitter or the Psi-disruptor, we're in pretty good shape in comparison to the Terran Confederacy.

    Which means that we can do several things:

    -Utterly annihilate the Terrans.
    -Make demands of them in exchange for their survival.
    -Diplomance! The UED might be here at any moment!
    -Any combination of the above, and many more options that I haven't thought of.

    I say we send a message to the KMC to be ready to receive a delegation from the Swarm.

    This will test if they have something up their sleeve, or if they know that they're essentially at our mercy right now.

    Send a snappily-dressed Infested Terran (not with a top hat and monocle, but up-to-date with current Terran formal fashion) with a token honor guard of Zerglings and/or Hydralisks. The infested Terran should have an obviously infested look, but not so much as to make them look like a heaping, bleeding mass of not-quite human shambling on two legs. Maybe one of our home-grown infested Terrans.

    From there, we will politely state the facts of the situation and gently ask them for concessions as the spectre of our huge Zerg/Terran/Protoss fleet along with who knows how many nukes looms over them. If they are not canny enough to know about the reality of their situation, then we shall demonstrate it.

    3.) Confederacy will be officially disbanded/dissolved. The KMC can handle this if it sounds too inconvenient or too much of a hassle for us.

    4.) Dissenters reserve the right to be infested at our discretion.

    In return:

    A.) Our Zerg will essentially disappear from view. For Civilians, life will return to normal. We'll be keeping representatives around the place, but they'll be unobtrusive (but pervasive in places of power, of course).

    B.) Our Zerg will not burninate or infestinate planets/populations en masse.

    C.) KMC has lots of mining/prospecting ability. We will chart out planets that they can do their business on. Zerg will get a generous cut of the minerals and vespene, but KMC can still keep a reasonable and fair share.

    D.) All Confederate holdouts reserve the right to be mulched or infested.

    E.) New Terran government will lend aid / technologies to the Swarm in times of need.

    The overlord descends unmolested into the atmosphere of Moria, approaching the steps of the Guild Hall, the outdated name for the planet's seat of government. Standing before it is Mah Sakai, the leader of the Combine, and a small delegation of important executives. They watch with tension as the overlord makes its excruciatingly slow way toward them.

    When it arrives, we let the tension grow for a moment before disgorging our overlord's passenger: the slight but attractive woman they saw before. Her skin is pale, with only a few legions betraying the biological contamination entwined with her on a genetic level. Her soulless eyes display no emotion, but her face mimics the motions of a human's. She is designed to be alluring and repulsive in roughly equal measure, a symbol both of the sweet benefits of capitulation, and the bitter danger of resistance.

    She introduces herself as the emissary of the Swarm. Sakai wastes no time on formalities, the thick Chinese accent only serving to make his every word give the impression of a man who simply does not have time for this.

    "Alright, so you're an emissary. Great. What kind of message are you emitting, exactly? The Morian Republic has matters to attend to."

    We outline our plan for a protectorate state, with only slight Zerg presence in Terran affairs.

    It takes a few hours of negotiations, but we are in stellar form. Despite a strong acumen for business negotiation, Sakai makes concession after concession. He knows his forces are inadequate to protect one world from the Zerg, much less two.

    Surprisingly enough, he and his council fight us as hard on the issue of sharing their resources as they do with the amount of say we will have in their government. They maintain a hard stance, but in the end, it will still be profitable for both of us.

    The topic of Corvus Kingston comes up, of course. We demand the right to deal with him ourselves, to which Sakai chuckles.

    "If you can find him, you can have him. Ever since we split off from his new and improved Confederacy, we've had everybody we had or could bribe on Tarsonis trying to locate him. We knew taking him out would be basically the same as taking Tarsonis itself. We never made any headway."

    Well, not everything can turn out perfect.

    The Subsidiary Treaty is drawn up, vetted by Morian lawyers, signed, notarized, signed again, dated, copied in triplicate, faxed mercilessly from office to office, and filed with ancillary documents.

    Moria works for us, now.

    Ah, finally access to sweet, sweet electricity and Internet.

    ....I have to admit, things went a lot better than I had feared.
    Now that we don't have to worry about the KMC or the Confederacy (besides hold-outs), we should inform Kerrigan of our treaty with the remaining Terrans.
    Also, how's Labbrate's progress on our cloning program?
    And were we able to recover the physical shell of Jim Raynor, or was it destroyed during Kingston's reign?

    Im out of it.
    I go to the epty sectors of this galaxy and start expanding. If i meet any of you there, do you know what i will do? I will just move out my swarms and run and grow my swarms in another place. Because yeah, exponential growth and shit.
    While you are locked in your eternal struggles, i will grow without any boundaries and obstacles.

    Here's me and my bitch. She's not a true cerebrate, dont worry, just imitation. I dont know why i did this, it's probably because of my later "personality" mutation, which i borrowed, which i considered to be useful since there are human and protoss induviduals having more success then others while being nearly identical genetically.

    At any rate, if we're not interested or don't have the time this session for looking deeper into the WorldShip files, I propose we notify Kerrigan about the changing face of the Korpulu Sector politics.

    Raynor is, in fact, still alive, though he appears to have constructed some sort of seed pod around himself over the past few weeks. When we reconnect his mind to the Swarm, it takes a few minutes to sort out the chaos that has been running through it for so long and force it to break out of its shell, the viscous green fluid squirting every direction.

    (Second result under "infested raynor." Google loves us)

    Labbrate's clones are incredibly efficient, now. It has set up a second cloning center, and can reliably create five to ten ghost-capable Terrans for infestation every few days. Considering the state of Terran cloning technology, this is even further evidence that Labbrate is a certifiable genius.

    Kerrigan takes the news of our alliance with some trepidation. Apparently, she was planning to infest Moria in the near future, and isn't certain why we insist on making peace through diplomacy when we clearly have the upper hand in the sector. Still, she won't slaughter the Morians or the Protoss while we have our agreements with them.

    Let's do both of these. It's not like we can't multitask, after all.

    We should do some surprise inspections at the Tarsonis military/research facilities to see if we can discover any new designs we can use. With the help of Cyberbrate, we may be able to go through the data fairly quickly and discover any leads.

    Kingston is probably cunning enough to have wiped out MOST records of where he could possibly be right now... but you never know.

    It's simple Kerri, I'm sabotaging the advancement of the plot so as to prevent the quest from ending. It can't be a starcraft quest without zerg, protoss, and the decedents of the exiles.

    Excellent news. Psi-high-fives for every one of our 'brates! Or the psi equivalent of a respectful nod/handshake for the more reserved and/or dour ones.

    Is Raynor a semi-autonomous entity, or is he just essentially a unique "hero"-level infested terran?
    >> Cerebrate Anon 09/01/11(Thu)00:41 No.16138114
    We actually have a bad track record with multitasking. We end up focusing on one thing, and forgetting the other thing is happening. We should try to focus on one thing from the start.

    Questing for Kingston? Hacking da Xel'Naga?

    (You say that like I'd keep the quest going if everybody were under our thumb, instead of writing up a huge epilogue and realizing that my Wednesday nights are suddenly free for whatever the hell I want, again. Anyway, we've still got the UED and Dyles before that's even remotely possible)

    Welcome the errant mind that was once Jim Raynor back into the Swarm. Can we get a run-down of any special abilities that this unit might have? Could we use him as another specialist Lord, like Colonylord? Something which is more independent than a regular Zerg unit, but is still less than a true Cerebrate.
    Because if so, I want to set him on Kingston's trail, and give him a team of Infested Ghosts from our cloning program, and access to any resources he requires for the Hunt.

    Thank Kerrigan for staying her hand from the Morians.

    Let's delve into the Worldship databanks again, while everything else is going on.

    Which is also: rebuild our conventional Zerg forces, and divert a quarter of the resources originally devoted to rearming the Swarm, to repairing Cyberbrate and Dagobah.

    Yeah, let's bring Raynor's sapience up, and set him to the task of hunting down Kingston. I want him independent enough to be highly effective at this task, but still devoted and loyal to us so he doesn't turn against us.

    And let Kerri and him make babies? We're not the Overmind, but we're certainly the Zerg Partiarc, and I don't think the new and improved Raynor is good enough for Kerri. I may be wrong, but I still fear that having Raynor drinking us out of cocoon and chrysalis is bad.

    Raynor's been infested for some time. We don't need to lord over him like he's a drone. He is capable of having the illusion of making his own decisions if he wants.

    If we have the time, let's check the Terran news networks to see how the general populace is handling the recent developments. Also, try pushing syndication of popular ZergTV programs onto other networks.

    Once Cyberbrate is fully repaired and operational, we shall connect him to the Koprulu Sector's version of the Internet, and we shall create Zchan, where all may be Anonymous in the Zchan Swarm.

    "You won't be seeing him anymore, young lady. And as long as you live under my hatchery, you won't go out looking like a tramp! Go mutate into a carapace with a bit of modesty right this instant!"

    Carefully, we invest Raynor's mind with psionic energy. It's a delicate balance, adding enough to elevate him to consciousness, but not enough to allow him to sever his ties to us. As we hit that vital point of sapience, we feel him breathe his way into new life, reborn once again into the Swarm.

    "Well, how 'bout that? It's been a long time, Cerebrate. I hear you're lookin' to find somebody? Well, Marshals ain't detectives, but I can give it a try."

    We haven't heard that voice in a long time. It's comforting, for some reason. We set Raynor on Kingston's trail.


    (I'm headed bedward. Next week, maybe we'll do a noir-type detective story in the Space Deep South with just an old gumshoe tracking down a deposed dictator for his xenomorphic mind-controlling masters.
