* WMG confirmed. In the first mission, Zeratul shows up to warn Artanis [[spoiler: against retaking Aiur]]. Selendis immediately calls Zeratul a traitor and orders his arrest. Artanis is willing to hear him out [[spoiler: but ignores his advice and goes ahead with the invasion anyway, to disastrous results]].

* No. The briefing in the first Brood War Terran mission mentions about the Captain recovering from cold sleep, indicating the Captain has come from Earth. But I like the idea of the Magistrate joining the UED to fight Mengsk, after he left Raynor's Raiders because of Raynor taking his own sweet time to get back at Mengsk and hang out with the Protoss.

* Maybe the Nameless Zerg Cerebrate in some way controls Duran - or maybe even has reincarnated itself in Duran. Not only does Duran protect Kerrigan by means of tactical aid, but he also [[spoiler:tries to combine Protoss and Zerg DNA]], which was the old Overmind's ultimate goal. And remember that Kerrigan, and subsequently also the Nameless Cerebrate, were explicitly only created to achieve this goal. Also, Duran states that [[spoiler:he does not serve Kerrigan but a far greater power]], which according to the already revealed parts of the Starcraft II story will be [[spoiler:the Xel'naga]], but judging from the statement alone could as well have been refering to the Overmind.

At some point in the past, the Xel'Naga discovered Earth, which was overrun by mystical creatures & people who had the ability to use similar supernatural powers to the Xel'Naga's own Protoss. The 'Nagas didn't want their own creations to be surpassed by a bunch of uppity aliens & they believed that life on Earth was too far along in its evolution for them to bend it to their whims, so they wiped out most of the magic-using species on the planet & did something to the remaining humans to prevent them from using magic, though a few magic-users remained & whose desecndants become the Ghosts.

[[WMG:StarCraft: Ghost was just a front to keep StarCraft 2 from being leaked]]
Think about it: By releasing a couple of screenshots every year, maybe a video or a rudimentary demo every now and then, Blizzard could focus attention away from its real surprise product: StarCraft 2. Plus, if I'm not mistaken, StarCraft: Ghost was canceled just a bit before the announcement of StarCraft 2. The problem is, SC:G was never officially canceled...just wait till Christmas!

* The queen actually has fundamental similarities (the long abdomen, large tusks, four leggy things, etc.) to the old queen in vanilla StarCraft. It's just that the leg-like membranes have become actual legs, it no longer flies, and it looks considerably more insect-like and less squishy than it used to.

Here's an interesting theory, based on the ending of StarCraft II. [[spoiler: The Xel'Naga artifact cured Kerrigan of her infestation, but at the same time it made her into a Zerg-Human hybrid. You can tell she still has some Zerginess by her hair in the ending cutscene. She's still the Queen of Blades, and thus in control of the Zerg, but the artifact's power allowed her to regain her humanity, so she - and by extension, the Zerg - are good guys now. This is the wrench to be thrown in the Dark Voice's plan - having the otherwise mindless Zerg used against him - and it's also the setup for the Heart of the Swarm campaign, wherein Kerrigan figures out how to control the Swarm while fighting off the imposing threat of the Dark Voice.]]

Look at those SCV's in StarCraft 2 creating a structure. They are not actually building it from the ground. It looks more like they are "unpacking" some sort of prebuilt package, probably dropped by the Hyperion. This explains how the Terrans can set up bases just as quickly as the protoss (who warp in their buildings) and the zerg (who grow into them in a matter of seconds due to The Rule of Disgusting Alien Evolution).

The difference will be that the player will control not one base, but 3, one for each race (which is easily doable in StarCraft, unlike in Warcraft). The player will also have 6 heroes, 2 for each race (Zeratul and Artanis with his Mothership for Protoss, Kerrigan and Stukov for the Zerg, Raynor - who will be given salvaged Odin - and "Hyperion" for the Terran). There will also be not 2, but 3 allied bases, each under command of a different character (Prince Valerian for Terran base will be given a proper hero unit, Zagara will command the Zerg and the Protoss one will be given to Selendis).
