Environment: Dok'Thorath Capital
After the destruction of the Thorathian conquering fleet and disappearance of Grand Warlord Voss, the Thorathian homeworld of Dok'Thorath was left in a state of turmoil. The powerful Thorathian military was now leaderless, and the constant warring had reduced the planet's population to dangerously low levels. Directionless, in-fighting among the remaining leadership of the Thorathian military left them unable to effectively rebuild their fleet. The Dok'Thorath freedom fighters were greatly outnumbered and outgunned, but - in an odd twist of fate - they were now more organized than their oppressors.
Now, the heroes of earth find themselves on this distant planet, pursuing a deadly foe to stop their dastardly plot. Will they enlist the aid of the local freedom fighters? Or will the Thorathia

- The fighting on Dok'Thorath started because Voss' fleet was destroyed, some rebels seized the opportunity to try to take over. The Prime Wardens ended up in the midst of the fighting because they were in some way helping Sky Scraper. The fighting was occuring before the heroes showed and continued after they left.

- The card “Orbital Bombardment” shows the rebel base being destroyed by laser fired from space. This is a reference to Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope, which had the evil Galactic Empire attempting to destroy the base of the heroic Rebel Alliance with their spacefaring superweapon, the Death Star. The composition of the art also calls to mind the alien attack in the film “Independence Day,” specifically the scene where the alien saucer destroys the White House.
- “Dok’Thorath” may be an anagram for "Dothraki," the name given to the nomadic warrior people of the “Song of Ice and Fire” books by George R.R. Martin.
- As an oppressed alien planet ruled by an unstable military, particularly one that has recently lost it’s de facto leader (Grand Warlord Voss), Dok’Thorath draws numerous comparisons to Korugar, the chaotic homeworld and ex-dominion of Sinestro.
