The Bone Trench

The Bone Trench is a landform on Char. It is located south of Death Valley and north of the Dauntless Plateau,[1] to which the trench provides the only path of access on the ground.

During the second phase of the Second Great War, General Horace Warfield established his base of operations on the plateau, from which the forces under his command could establish their control over the planet. Broodmother Zagara tried to attack his base by bringing her brood through the trench. However, Warfield deployed Gorgon-class battlecruisers that strafed the zerg over and over, decimating them. Their bodies were left piled up in the trench itself.

With the arrival of Sarah Kerrigan on Char, she too intended to remove Warfield from power and again, that would necessitate moving through the trench. As before, Gorgon-class battlecruisers were deployed. However, Kerrigan was able to revive some dormant scourge nests, using their scourges to destroy the capital ships and allowing the zerg to advance without fear of their fire. Because of their size, only one battlecruiser could be deployed in the trench at a time, and with each deployment, Kerrigan was able to find the required scourges to down it. As such, the zerg drove the Dominion forces back, gaining access to the Dauntless Plateau.[2]
