Bountiful is a planet in the Koprulu sector.

It has a climate similar to Earth, with distinct seasons such as autumn and winter. Its stratosphere was slightly more dynamic however, ranging to gray skies with ranging thunderstorms, vibrant blue in winter and at sunset, a cobalt sky.

Much emphasis on communal activities is evident in Bountiful's culture, children being educated in science and spirituality in large groups, although teenagers exert more freedom. Known subjects include history/heritage, hydroponics and religious studies.[2]


Early YearsEdit

Bountiful was colonized in the 24th century, roughly at the same time the terrans of Tarsonis had made first contact with those on Umoja and Moria. It was colonized by religious individuals from all three colonies, relying on hydroponic agriculture to support themselves. Patriarchs, the religious leaders of the colony, also seemed to have administrative duties.[2]

Bountiful was a peaceful world and far removed from Confederate influence.[3] This was shattered in 2499, where as part of a mass conscription process, the Confederacy attacked Helaman Township, carrying out forceful recruitment.[2]

Bountiful later became a world of the Terran Dominion.

During the Second Great War, in the midst of the public outrage that resulted from Raynor's Raiders revealing that Arcturus Mengsk had authorized the use of psi emitters against Tarsonis, Bountiful declared independence.[1]

The planet had secured independence by the later stages of the war.[4]

New ThreatsEdit

"They call themselves the Defenders of Man. Whoever they are; Bountiful’s civilian populace appears to be grateful."

- Kate Lockwell, in light of the Defenders' defense of Bountiful(src)

Years after the End War, Bountiful came under attack by feral zerg. Aid came from the renegade militia, the Defenders of Man. The population showed gratitude toward their saviors.[5]



Bountiful was to feature in Heart of the Swarm as part of the cut Destruction of Worlds mechanic. The player could send Kilysa to conquer the world as an alternative to Bhekar Ro or Haven.[4]
