The events of this map take place JUST after the Omega mission, with the defeated UED, Dominion and Protoss fleet attempting to escape from their doom. This time you don't play as the Zerg. Actually, you almost can't play in this map (it is mostly a movie map, with its music, its sounds, its flashy ships, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera). However, you can play at a moment of the map (very little, but at least you play).
Here is the prologue of the map (and with luck, it'll be also the story of a campaign...). This prologue is also in the map's briefing, but anyway...
Sarah Louise Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades. Arcturus Mengsk could not forget what she had said to him on Korhal. She had been correct. If he didn't betray her at New Gettysburg, this... none of this would have happened. Though too prideful to admit it, the man knew he had been responsible. Just out the large window, he could see his men. Or rather his "associates" that he had rallied to take out Kerrigan.
Arcturus Mengsk now faced another problem. In fact, two problems. He had to answer for his defeat at the hands of the Zerg. Surely, the people who provided him with their men and equipment want those back, and the reassuring news that Kerrigan had been dealt with. It was not going to happen.
The second problem he faced was rebuilding his shattered empire. With the remainder of his fleet, very little of which were actually Dominion forces, they would never be able to stand up to the swarm alone.
The man's eyes winced. He could not set aside what was said to him by Kerrigan on Korhal. She had not only physically defeated his forces, but she had mentally crippled his resolve. No matter how many Zerg were killed in the previous battle, they would all be replaced soon. The Terran and Protoss were a different story, of course...
Arcturus Mengsk, Terran Dominion - 39
Emperor of the Terran Dominion. An empire which have been greatly weakened in the past months. At first by those who called themselves the "United Earth Directorate". At last by the treacherous Sarah Kerrigan, his once second-in-command on the Sons of Korhal. But that was before he betrayed her, leaving her alone on the Confederate-infested world of Tarsonis. He knew that he was the only responsible of that. And he knew that he was the only responsible of the death of hundreds of thousands of both protoss and terran lives. He was too prideful too admit it, however.

Martha Williams, Terran Dominion - 31
As the youngest Dominion General (and most likely the youngest Terran woman to achieve that rank), she has served under Mengsk's flag even before the formation of the Sons of Korhal. After General Edmund Duke's death over the desertic planet of Korhal IV, she has become Mengsk's most trusted soldier, usually accompanying him in the new Dominion flagship, the Leviathan. She achieved the rank of General given the fact that she has never lost a battle (well, the lose of General Duke also was an important factor, of course). His abilities and skills in combat resemble that of a Ghost, despite she isn't possessing any psionic or psychic power. Earning the position of the late General Duke, she has been present in the final battle of Char, the last late of the Brood War. While she hasn't lost a battle since she is on military service, there is always a first time for everything, right?
CURRENT STATUS: *ALIVE*
Gerard DuGalle, United Earth Directorate - 64
Admiral of the once powerful and dominating United Earth Directorate expeditionary fleet to Koprulu. A fleet that had failed in their mission of take control over the sector. A fleet that had failed in destroy the Zerg because the arrogance of its admiral. A fleet that is now being crushed to ashes by the Zerg over the former UED main stronghold of Char. A world that is now the throne world of Sarah Kerrigan, the self-proclaimed Queen of Blades. Really, Admiral DuGalle hadn't many choices after being defeated on the space platform called as Char Aleph. If he decided to stay in the sector, its fleet would be destroyed by Kerrigan's wrath. If he decided to return to Earth, its fleet would be too destroyed by Kerrigan's wrath before it could even exit from the Koprulu sector. His destiny, and that of his men, is as dark as the heart of the woman who ruled over the Swarm.
CURRENT STATUS: *DEAD*
Sarah Kerrigan, Queen of Blades, Zerg Swarm - 27
Only God knows what had happened to this woman. From strange Confederate experiments on Zerg to her infestation and assimilation into the Zerg Swarm, her hatred for the Terran race has become total. Before her infestation, she fought for the Terran freedom against the corrupt Confederacy. She thought that not all the Terrans were greedy and corrupt creatures. She thought that the Sons of Korhal, and mainly its leader, Arcturus Mengsk, were the exception. She believed Mengsk to be her teacher. Her friend. Her new father. But upon Mengsk's betrayal on New Gettysburg, she learnt how mistaken she was. It was the only good thing the Overmind did for her: he opened her eyes. And now, victorious, with the destiny of all the races of the Koprulu sector at her hands, she at last can show to the other "lesser" races the power of her wrath. The power of revenge. The power of the Swarm.
CURRENT STATUS: *INFESTED*
