Recall is a protoss ability used to transport matter over spatial distances. This is accomplished by creating tears in space-time and moving objects through those tears.
Mass recall capabilities was developed for
motherships during the Golden Age of Expansion of the Protoss Empire in response to the destruction of two motherships in the gravity well of a neutron star.
Recall was a signature ability of
Arbiters during the Great War. Control over space-time manipulation was provided by the Judicator caste crew. Arbiters fell out of use after the fall of Aiur and the passing of the Judicator caste.
"Dimensional recall" is a version of recall on a larger scale that allows an entire protoss base to travel between planets after a period of preparation.
