"...any ship receiving this transmission...the zerg are invading Agria...The Dominion abandoned us here ...We're just a small farming colony. We've got to evacuate before we're overrun....If you can hear this message, please help us!"

- Doctor Ariel Hanson's distress call(src)

Agria is a planet in the Koprulu sector.

History[edit | edit source]

Colonial flag.

Agria was a relatively barren fringe world until it was terraformed by Doctor Bernard Hanson, who founded a colony there and became its chairman. Agria boasted a wide range of cutting-edge research and terraforming equipment due to its status as one of the primary botanical reserves of the Terran Confederacy. The colony remained relatively safe and prosperous over the years. With the fall of the Confederacy in 2500, the Terran Dominion stationed a permanent defense force on Agria,[2] which became one of its principal botanical and wildlife preserves.[3]

In August 2502, the small town of Hudderstown Colony, inspired by rebel leader Castor Mezzo, was almost exterminated by a single female ghost. The town was rescued by the War Pigs, a band of outlaws, who killed Mezzo before leaving. A Dominion official, visiting the town afterward, considered the colonists "irrelevant".[4]

Sometime after 2502, Agent Nova Terra was sent to Agria to assassinate former Confederate supporter. She psionically killed the man in front of his family before escaping undetected.[5]

In 2503, a heavily armed group of pirates stormed Agria, intent on stealing the colony's hi-tech scientific equipment. Dominion marines engaged the pirates, carelessly slaughtering colonists who were caught in the crossfire. The pirates were eventually driven off the planet.[2]

The Evacuation[edit | edit source]

The highway

During the Second Great War, Agria was invaded by the zerg. The Dominion abandoned the colony and the zerg overwhelmed the planetary defenses. People were evacuated to the main starport, but after twelve hours the zerg attacks became so intense that Doctor Ariel Hanson sent out a distress call.[3]

The evacuation

Hanson's distress call was answered by Raynor's Raiders, who guarded the highway from Larks' Crossing as the remaining convoys were sent to the starport. After the evacuation was successful, remaining Agrian colonial troops stayed behind to hold off the zerg attackers long enough for the last transport to leave at the cost of their lives.[3]
