"Please, you have to help me escape. My name is Morik and they have been doing horrible experiments on me. If you want to help me escape, there are computer terminals in the main laboratory that control the doors to these cells."
- Morik after being found by the Space Pirates(src)
He was rescued by the Kimeran Pirates when they raided a Confederate science facility. Morik went on a rampage through the facility, freeing protoss and zerg test subjects, killing guards. As the facility began to destroy itself, the pirates were retrieved by the Kimera, and one of them spoke up for Morik, telling Buzan that he seemed to be okay. Buzan was dubious, but nonetheless extracted Morik along with his operatives.
