Official StarCraft comics!
Terran space scavengers find several shocking surprises on the derelict protoss ship they're hoping to pillage. Will Caleb, a newcomer to this group, discover their leader's secret mission? Writer Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Faith) and artist Gabriel Guzman (Mass Effect: Discovery, Star Wars) join forces for a new series that expands the universe of Blizzard's hit game.
After Orry and Vince were killed by a mysterious attacker, Captain Theban ordered his scavengers to stay sharp, and told Caleb and Kyra they were not leaving without he weaponry power cell. They eventually discovered it, finding the device with power still flowing through it, and Caleb began disconnecting it. Meanwhile, other scavengers continued to be picked off by the cloaked attacker, with Mason being killed when he encountered Orry's corpse.
Caleb disconnected the power cell and placed it in a storage cube, and the scavengers were ordered to regroup. Meanwhile, the assailant picked off members of the other group, taking Sharon. Theban ordered that the group return to the Magpie, and said that whatever was on the ship would kill them all if they tried to face it alone. Caleb suggested returning to the Magpie, arming up, and returning to rescue any survivors, to which Theban agreed.
The scavengers returned to their ship's hatch, with stragglers being picked off along the way, only to find it locked. Theban opened the manual override, allowing them in, but they suspected their assailant was now on their ship. They armed themselves and moved on the bridge, only to find the door jammed. Theban ordered Caleb to decouple their ship from the protoss one to prevent them from getting caught when the protoss ship fell into the planet's atmosphere, but before they could the sound of footsteps echoed through their ship.
As they prepared for a fight, a flash grenade blinded them. When the scavengers sight returned, they found themselves faced with a number of Terran Dominion marines lead by Captain Barlow, who stated the scavengers were under arrest.
