StarCraft: Brood War (1998 Video Game)
Praetor Artanis: Though I have only recently been appointed Praetor, you can trust that I will uphold the honor and traditions of the Templar.
Aldaris: We shall see.
Dark Templar: Adun Toridas, Zeratul! Glad I am to see that you've returned home after these many decades. But the strange guests that have followed you here seem... ill-tempered.
Praetor Artanis: You will be hopelessly outnumbered, and once the gate is shut down there will be no one to save you should you be overrun.
Jim Raynor: Yeah, well... I'm a man of action. What can I say?
Praetor Artanis: What do I look like, an Orc? This is not 'WarCraft in Space'! It's much more sophisticated!
Kerrigan: Well done, mighty Protoss. I'm glad to see you are all as violent as ever.
Zeratul: Kerrigan! What mockery is this?
Kerrigan: Relax, warriors. Despite what you may think, I haven't come here to fight you.
Aldaris: Hah! This is laughable! Do you truly expect us to believe that your intentions here are honourable? That these Zerg here are not under your sway?
Kerrigan: Look, the Cerebrates you killed were my enemies as well. If you let me explain, I'm sure you'll understand that...
Zeratul: You are the enemy of all who live, Kerrigan. What makes you think we would have anything to do with you?
Kerrigan: Because Zeratul, I bring news of an event that threatens us all. If you take me back to your citadel, I'll tell you everything I know.
Raszagal, Protoss Matriarch: Very well, Kerrigan. We shall hear what you have to say. But be warned - we will not suffer your treachery here.
[on the regenerating Overmind]
Kerrigan: I can guarantee you that should it awaken, it'll take full control of me just like it did before. I don't want that to happen, and I'm pretty sure you don't want it to happen either.
Zeratul: You have done well, Kerrigan. There is more to you than it seems. Perhaps I have misjudged you.
Kerrigan: Given our past history, I can't say I blame you.
[on the UED Expeditionary Fleet blockading Braxis]
Zeratul: United Earth Directorate? Raynor spoke of the distant Terran home world called Earth. These humans have come a long way to make war on us.
Zeratul: Our sensors indicate a massive, fluctuating energy signature at its location. I am, however, unable to identify the signature's source.
Kerrigan: That should be obvious, gentlemen - the source is the Overmind itself.
Praetor Artanis: Let us depart this wretched world and return to Shakuras... Provided there is still a Shakuras to return to...
Aldaris: You believe me to be a traitor, but it is you and the Matriarch who will usher our race to oblivion!
Zeratul: It is finished, Judicator. Surrender your remaining forces, and join us in eradicating the Zerg.
Aldaris: I would sooner die, dark one, than tarnish the memory of Aiur by joining with you.
Praetor Artanis: Do not force us to destroy you.
Aldaris: You can no longer afford to be so naive, Artanis.
Praetor Artanis: This entire chain of events has been masterminded by Kerrigan, and we played right into her hands!
Zeratul: Matriarch, I have served you for many millennia. I have always valued your wisdom and strength. Yet lately, in your mind, I have sensed something that clouds your true spirit. Though Kerrigan has gone, I wonder if her treachery still remains?
Zeratul: Executor, the channeling is complete! Withdraw our forces into the Temple... And brace yourself!
Kerrigan: You know, Admiral, I think I'll just massacre your remaining troops and watch you die in agony. How would that be?
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: You vastly underestimate me, my dear.
Kerrigan: I don't think so, Admiral. You see, at this point, I'm pretty much the Queen Bitch of the Universe. And not all of your little soldiers or space ships will stand in my way again.
[Kerrigan has betrayed Mengsk by killing Duke and his forces]
Arcturus Mengsk: Kerrigan, you murdering bitch! We had a deal.
Kerrigan: Oh, come on, Arcturus. Did you really think that I would allow you to come into power again? You practically fed me to Zerg on Tarsonis, you're directly responsible for the hell I've been through. Did you honestly think that I would let you get away with that?
Arcturus Mengsk: But you said revenge was secondary to defeating the UED!
Kerrigan: I lied. I Liberated this planet because it was the UED's primary staging point, not because I was under any obligation to you. I used you to destroy the Psi Disrupter and now that I've got my broods back, you're no longer necessary for my plans. I think I'll leave you here, Arcturus, among the ashes of your precious Dominion. I want you to live to see me rise to power and I want you to always remember, in your most private moments, that it was you who let me loose in the first place
Fenix: This is a betrayal most foul, Kerrigan. We were fools to have gone along with this charade!
Kerrigan: You're right, Fenix. I used you to get the job done, and you played along just like I knew you would. You Protoss are all so headstrong and predictable. You are your own worst enemies.
Fenix: That's ironic, I can remember Tassadar teaching you a very similar lesson on Char.
Kerrigan: I took that lesson to heart, Praetor. Now, are you prepeared to die a second time?
Fenix: The Khala awaits me, Kerrigan. And although I am prepeared to face my destiny, you will not find me easy prey!
Kerrigan: Then that shall be your epitaph.
Jim Raynor: Fenix! No!
Kerrigan: What are you worried about, Jim? He died the way all Protoss hope to: in combat.
Jim Raynor: He died because you betrayed him. How many more noble souls do you need to consume before you're satisfied? How many more innocent people have to die before you realize what you've become?
Kerrigan: You don't even know what you're talking about, Jim!
Jim Raynor: Don't I? I'll see you dead for this, Kerrigan! For Fenix, and all the others who got caught between you and your mad quest for power!
Kerrigan: Tough talk, Jimmy, but I don't think you have what it takes to be a killer.
Jim Raynor: It may not be tomorow, darlin', it may not even happen with an army at my back. But rest assured; I'm the man who's gonna kill you one day. I'll be seeing you.
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: Once started there is no going back. Are you prepare to go all the way with this Alexei?
Alexei Stukov: [looks down and then rise up] Yes... Yes I am prepared to go all the way, my good admiral.
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: Good, Good I knew that I could count on you.
Battlecruiser: [a symphony of Toreador starts] Admiral, the colony's defenses will be overrun in a matter of minutes, should we intervene?
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: Take us into orbit, Mr. Malmsteen, we've seen enough.
Kerrigan: [as the Protoss Alliance, the Sons of Korhal and the UED have failed to stop the Swarm, Kerrigan stands in ascension over her defeated enemies] Once again I stand atop the broken bodies of my enemies... Victorious but not unscarred. The Earth-borne Directorate has been destroyed. And the Overmind lies dead and trampled beneath the ashes of Char. As for my unlikely allies, I think that I shall allow them a reprieve. For in time I will seek to test their resolve, and their strengths. - They will all be mine in the end, for I am the Queen of Blades. None shall ever dispute my rule again.
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: [as the UED is in full disarray after a defeat on Char, DuGalle's sends a transmission to his wife] Dearest Helena, By now the news of our defeat has reached the Earth.The creatures we were sent here to tame are un-tamable.And the colonies we were sent to reclaim have proven to be stronger than we anticipated. Whatever you may hear about what has happened out here, know this; Alexi did not die gloriously in battle. I killed him. My pride killed him. And now my pride has consumed me as well. You will never see me again, Helena. Tell our children that I love them, and that their father died in defense of their future. Au revoir.
[Admiral DuGalle shoots himself with his revolver]
Samir Duran: [Zeratul and his Protoss companions have found a special hybrid with zerg/protoss signature. Duran reveals himself to Zeratul] I've had many names throughout the millennia, young prodigal. You would know me best as "Samir Duran."
Zeratul: Kerrigan's consort! Is this part of her twisted schemes?
Samir Duran: No. Young Kerrigan could not have engineered this grand experiment. Although her rebirth into the Zerg Swarm has sped up my progress, I can assure you that this endeavor is quite beyond her narrow understanding.
Zeratul: If you are not her pawn, then what are you?
Samir Duran: I am a servant of a far greater power. A power that has slept for countless ages. And is reflected in the creature within that cell.
Zeratul: Have you any conception of what you've created here? Do you have any idea what this... this Hybrid is capable of?
Samir Duran: Of course I do. This creature is the completion of a cycle. Its role in the cosmic order was preordained when the stars were young. Behold the culmination of your history.
Zeratul: All I behold is an abomination.
Samir Duran: Your violence, young prodigal, is typical. As is your inablility to comprehend the greater scheme of things. You can destroy all of the specimens here. It will do you no good. For I have seeded the Hybrid on many, many worlds. You will never find them all before they awaken... And when they do... your universe will be changed... forever.
Aldaris: Then we should strike now while the Zerg still muster their forces!
Aldaris: With all due respect, Zeratul, the Protoss do not run from their enemies. Aiur is our homeworld. It is here that we shall make our stand!
Praetor Artanis: [after the player defeats the Protoss in the game's final level] Savor this victory, Kerrigan! For the Protoss will never forget your treachery. We shall be watching you.
Arcturus Mengsk: [after the player defeats Mengsk's forces in the game's final level] Congratulations, Kerrigan. You've beaten me again. Just remember that I'll be out there... waiting for you to slip up. Because sooner or later you'll make a mistake. And when you do...
Admiral Gerard DuGalle: [after the player defeats the UED in the game's final level] Kerrigan, I am prepared to offer terms of surrender. It is my wish that you allow my men to live...
Kerrigan: You're not in a position to offer me anything, Admiral. And I don't take prisoners. I'll tell you what... Turn your remaining ships around and start heading back towards the Earth. I'll let you have a head start, before I send the Swarms after you. It'll be interesting sport to see how far you get before you die.
Zeratul: Damn you, Kerrigan, for what I must do!
[he frees Raszagal]
Raszagal, Protoss Matriarch: Thank you, Zeratul... You have freed me from her vile control at last. You have always served me with honor... Thus I must ask you... to watch over my tribe... Into your hands I give the future.
[Zeratul kills her]
Kerrigan: I can hardly believe this! You've killed your own Matriarch!
Zeratul: Better that I killed her, than let her live as your slave, Kerrigan.
Kerrigan: Well, I have misjudged you, warrior. You are worthy, indeed. You are free to go.
Kerrigan: I said, you are free to go. I've already taken your honor. I'll let you live, because I know that from now on; your every waking moment will be torture. You'll never be able to forgive yourself for what I've forced you to do. And that, Zeratul, is a better revenge than I could have ever dreamed of.
Zeratul: You will regret this decision, Kerrigan. We shall meet again.
