StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops is the first mission pack for Starcraft II. Consisting of nine missions, it will be released over the course of three installments as DLC, with three missions per installment. The first mission pack was released March 29th, with two more packs to be released through 2016.

Mission Pack 1 consists of The Escape, Sudden Strike and Enemy Intelligence. This campaign takes place a few years after the epilogue of Legacy of the Void (post-2508). The Terran Dominion, led by Emperor Valerian Mengsk, is attempting to recover from the civil wars and zerg attacks that have ravaged their civilization. Along with facing political opposition, several Dominion ghosts have gone missing, the trail leading to a secretive terran group called the “Defenders of Man.”Nova Terra is assigned to investigate, but goes missing. Meanwhile, zerg attacks return on the outer colonies of the Terran Dominion, with Emperor Valerian Mengsk’s new regime slow to respond to the sudden assaults.

Nova later wakes up in a Defenders of Man base, with no memory of what happened. She gets a message on her visor stating she is in danger, and escapes the facility. She regroups with Stone and the rest of the squad that was assigned to infiltrate the facility, and escape the city of Sharpsburg while being pursued by Defenders of Man forces. Stone and Nova reach the spaceport, and Stone demands Nova goes ahead without him.

Nova regroups with Admiral Matt Horner on Borea, who says the Terran Dominion had evidence she was working with the Defenders of Man, and that she is wanted for treason (though Horner was skeptical of the accusations). However soon after the base is assaulted by an overwhelming force of feral zerg, and Horner asks Nova to aid them. She leads a Covert Ops Crew as they defend the canyons leading into Matt Horner’s base. Eventually, the Defenders of Man appear and assault the zerg, and demand the Dominion leave the planet and surrender Nova. Using the conflict between the two factions as their chance to escape, the Dominion leave the planet with Nova.

Valerian meets with Nova, and gives her a new command ship, the Griffin, as well as her own Covert Ops Crew. He also puts a new weapons and technology specialist, Reigel, under her command, who attempts to reactivate the memories she had lose while working for the Defenders of Man. The device shows her the ruins of her home,Tarsonis. Nova and her team move on Tarsonis and secure garrisons outside of the base while Nova infiltrated in. The Defenders of Man notice her, and activate a psi emitter in their own base. Nova continues further, and discovers that the Defenders of Man were luring zerg to civilian worlds to discredit Emperor Valerian Mengsk, and were now planning to have a civilian world destroyed to prove the new regime’s weakness.
