The rain continued pouring hard as several ponies galloped for their lives while hundreds upon hundreds of monsters of indescribable horror descended upon them. The Royal Guard were completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of the creatures, the strange ground kept spreading over the town and more and more of those pod things kept falling from the sky, releasing more of the monsters. Ponyville was lost, Lyra realized with horror. The town was lost and they were all going to die at the claws of these nightmarish beasts.
Lyra tripped over a branch and she immediately realized she was doomed as one of the smaller creatures leaped up toward her, its claws outstretched to rip her open and kill her, Lyra closed her eyes and accepted her fate...
Meanwhile, far above beyond the sky, beyond the very atmosphere of the world. A large cruiser orbited the planet and inside two men, Terrans, watched several screens depicting the horrifying images from the planet. One of the Terrans dressed in an officer’s uniform, shook his head.
“This proves it.” He said. “The psi emitter can draw the Zerg en masse. The rumours that Mengsk and the Sons of Korhol were behind the invasion of Tarsonis were true! Damn that man!”
The other Terran, dressed like royalty, with dark gray clothing and a long grey cape and a long sword sheathed and attached to his belt, smiled.
“I’m surprised,” He said. “I thought the records were destroyed on Mar Sara, but Mengsk is far more resourceful than we ever imagined.”
“But just as ruthless.” The officer replied. “It turns out we weren’t lying about him after all.”
The screens and lights in the cramped room flickered before turning off completely, causing the Terran in the fancy clothes to curse.
“I thought we were too far from the Rift for the energy waves to hit us!?” He said.
“Sorry, sir.” The officer said. “I guess we were wrong.”
The royal Terran pulled out an object from his pocket, a badge with the symbol of the Confederacy of Man. He examined it as he slowly walked toward the window, looking down on the world below the ship.
“Well,” The officer said. “Now that we know Mengsk was the one who used the psi emitters, what do we do?”
“Simple,” The royal Terran answered. “We return to our own dimension, and use the psi emitter to wipe out Mengsk and his Dominion, and we bring the Confederacy and the Old Families back to power!”
"With all due respect sir, we're one ship." The officer said. "If you hadn't sacrificed Captain Doro's ship days ago to bring the psi emitter and the Zerg to this dimension, we'd have enough supplies to take over one of the fringe worlds and gather more Confederate loyalists to join our cause."
"With our psi emitters, we won't need more troops and supplies, we can just simply destroy the main Zerg hive with on well-placed nuke right after they wipe out all resistance on the planet but before they can gain a stronger foothold!"
"Sir, you saw what the Zerg did to Tarsonis, they dug themselves so deep into the ground that the only thing that could get rid of them was if they decided to leave on their own, which they did!"
"You make it sound like they're intelligent, General." The royal Terran responded. "The Zerg are beasts, nothing more. No intelligence, no strategy, just mindless beasts that attack and kill all in their path."
Before the officer could reply, the whole area shook and another crewman entered the room.
“Sir!” He said, panic on his face. “Zerg attack force! They’re tearing at the bulkheads!”
“What!?” The royal Terran said. “Damn! Of all the times to attack us, it had to be when we were without power!”
The ship shook again and the sound of creaking metal could be heard.
“Get to the drop-pods!” The officer ordered. “We’ll evacuate onto the planet below!”
“Have you gone mad!?” The royal Terran said. “The Zerg will overrun that planet in a matter of days! We’ll be putting our backs to the wall!”
“If you wish to remain onboard, be my guest.” The officer said. “But I’m not staying here, dying in the vacuum of space isn’t the most dignified, or painless, way to go.”
“Neither is dying at the hands of a thousand Zerglings...” The royal said, but nevertheless, he followed the officer and the other crewman to the drop-pods where everyone was already making their way to.
Outside, dozens of Mutalisks tore at the large battlecruiser, ripping into its hull. None noticed the multitude of pods being jettisoned from the cruisers, flying towards the planet and heating up as they entered the planet’s atmosphere. Farther beyond the dead cruiser, a bright flash appeared as a large golden ship reminiscent to that of a zeppelin formed, the Mutalisks immediately abandon the cruiser and flew towards the golden ship.
Inside one of the pods, the royal looked up between the skirmish of the Zerg flying units and the large golden ship.
"You know what's also another undignified way to go?" He asked the officer, who responded with a puzzled look. The royal pointed to the golden ship. "Being melted by the Protoss..."
