In the fictional StarCraft universe, Moria is a mineral-rich world in the StarCraft universe, located in the Koprulu Sector. The original colonists arrived in the Argo, a vessel whose databanks were rendered inaccessible when it crashed on Moria.
Despite its wealth, Moria was behind Tarsonis in terms of technological development, mainly because Tarsonis had access to ATLAS , an artificial intelligence which contained great amounts of technological information from Earth. Furthermore, the Terran Confederacy based on Tarsonis was rapidly increasing its military power with its high technology and from forming new colonies.
Two shady mining guilds, the Kelanis Guild and the Morian Mining Coalition, formed the Kel-Morian Combine, a group which looked out for Morian mining interests. The Confederates reacted with the Guild Wars which ended with the defeat of the Kel-Morian Combine, about 20 years before the StarCraft game begins.
The Kel-Morian Combine remained in charge of their world, however, and remained one of the three major Terran powers in the sector. After the creation of the Terran Dominion it joined as a member planet.
Moria was untouched by the events of the original StarCraft, but in the Brood War it had its first taste of war in a generation. When the United Earth Directorate defeated the Terran Dominion, the Kel-Morian Combine made a deal with the UED to avoid invasion.
