Harvest of Screams,[1] formerly Silence their Cries, is a mission on Kaldir. It is somewhere between the fourth and sixth missions of Heart of the Swarm.[2]

Brood mother Na'fash had traveled here to create stronger claims. Sarah Kerrigan and a small number of zerglings landed on the moon (via sac) in order to reclaim the Na'fash Brood. She discovered feral roaches which she brought onto her side,[3] along with ursadons.[1]

The moon was constantly struck by cold windstorms,[3] which would freeze the zerg and protoss in place[4] and force the local protoss base to raise its shields[3] and go into a dormant state,[5] but had no effect on the ursadons. As a result, Kerrigan wished to take DNA from a pair of ursadon matriarchs.[1]

The zerg encountered Na'fash's corpse... the protoss had got to her first. The high templar in charge, upon noting the presence of Kerrigan, attempted to warn Shakuras.[3] The protoss remarked on Kerrigan's weakened state.[6] Unable to reach the far-off Dark Templar homeworld with the Khala, he instead used psi-link spires. Kerrigan tasked her forces to destroy these spires before they could be activated.[3] If the player collects the native DNA, they can take advantage of the cold weather by attacking when the protoss are frozen, bypassing defenders.[7]

Kerrigan destroyed the spires, at the the three protoss bases[2] prompting the protoss to retreat. Kerrigan then ordered her forces to finish off the protoss before they could travel directly to Shakuras and get their warning off.[3]
