Revision as of 17:54, October 10, 2013

January

  • Kate Lockwell does a story involving treason and how the Dominion punishes it (the death penalty).[1]

February

March

  • The anniversary of Arcturus Mengsk's coronation is celebrated. Simultaneously, the Knights of Freedom air the Candore footage.[1]

After many months of struggle, Juliana Pasteur succumbs to cancer and is buried on Umoja. After the funeral, Arcturus tells Valerian the story of the Mengsk Dynasty.[3][2][note 2]

Mid-Year

August

  • August 17: Leonid Celsus arrives at the ruins of Hudderstown with a troop of marines. He is surprised at how the War Pigs managed to exterminate the ghost.[9]

September

October

  • October 22: Cole Hickson's neural resocialization begins to show, the result being obsession with mission preparation.[11]
  • October 25:[12] The War Pigs track Raynor to Urona Sigma, only to discover the planet infested with zerg.[7] While eventually confronting Raynor, Cerberus forces arrive to attack the outlaws and the protoss in turn to purify the planet.[11]

Later Events

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft (comic) which is no longer valid.

  • The surviving War Pigs launch a do-or-die assault on Cauley's HQ.[13] Nova meanwhile shadows them.[14]

Misc. Events

  • Independent and indentured contractors begin strip-mining Chau Sara and Mar Sara of their resources.[18]

Relatively Timed

The events below appear to take place in the order listed, as they have always been portrayed in this order in novel timeline material.

  • A psychotic viking pilot, Captain Jon Dyre, attacks the innocent colonists of Ursa during a weapon demonstration. His former pupil, Wes Carter, confronts Dyre in order to end his crazed killing spree, in which he succeeds.[24][25][2]

Disputed Dates

Arcturus Mengsk carries out an overhaul of the Ghost Program, namely the termination of half its agents. As a "birthday present", his son "receives" Ghost Agent Devon Starke.[26]

The timing of this event is 2500 according to the StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils timeline,[2] although Shadow Hunters suggests it takes place only one year prior to The Dark Templar Saga.

The next article in this series is 2503.

Notes

  1. Established as occuring in 2502 by the timeline in StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils, the month can be obtained by 2500 relative timing, placing Mengsk's coronation in March. The January-March dates for Newsworthy can be obtained through this method.
  2. This occurs 18 months after the raid on Umoja, which occurs in September, 2500 through relative timing. This raises the issue of Valerian's D.O.B., with his mother's death occurring a month before his birth, which in the original timeline would have fit in without contradiction. Given the placing of this event in the timeline in Heaven's Devils, it appears that the time of death has been roughly retained, even if the death-birth deletion has been rendered null.
  3. Happens after the above dates, as per placing in the timeline.
  4. Due to 2500 timeline retcons, the net result is either an extended period of time exists between Nova's completion and graduation mission, or her training time has been extended. As there is no clear indication towards the latter, it appears the case of the former exists.
  5. These events occur before Forst's attempted heist, but their timing in regards to the relatively timed material below is unclear.
