Think about it: His father is evil, running TheEmpire, apparently denying him the opportunity to prove himself worthy ([[Film/{{Gladiator}} and we all now how that turns out with emperor's sons...]]), and, [[ItsBeenDone most important of all]]; [[AristocratsAreEvil HE'S]] [[{{Expy}} FRIG]][[PermaStubble GIN']] [[BlondesAreEvil ARTHAS]] ([[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]])!!!! And since Terenas was good, killed by his evil son, Valerian will be even worse than his evil father.

It doesn't make sense for there to be unharvested mineral fields and geysers in the middle of a major city. By any right, they should have been harvested long ago. However, if they replenish, then those patches are merely locations that are being left fallow so they can be harvested later.

In addition, (inspired by previous WMG) to preserve peace between the peoples a celebration is held on the anniversary of Amon's defeat. Where in a tournament is als held between the faction members. It becomes a symbol of stability and unity between as old tensions are worked out through battle. In time, it evolves from angry grudge matches into healthy competition, entertainment and training.

* If interest of Starcraft the ''gameplay'' remains high, Blizzard won't shut it down, it's a national sport in Korea for a reason. Ongoing story may be done, but gameplay, that remains to be seen. While it's true that the original story is finished, they can start anew with a new cast though with similar setting. So I don't think Starcraft should be called 'down for count' yet.

[[WMG: To preserve the unified front, the Daelaam will form a ruling council of Protoss faction leaders.]]
The Nerazim and Khalai would have true no issues with each other I believe, if I recall my canon, Shakuras was where the Khalai fled after their homeworld fell. However the purifiers and (more so) the Tal'Darim wouldn't be so easily accepting of the new ways. So to preserve the piece, each major faction on Aiur will elect leaders to represent them in a ruling council.

[[WMG: The [=KL-2=] Entity is {{Zalgo}}]]
* It was trapped in a planet orbitting a dead star, [[http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Voice_in_the_Darkness_%28entity%29#Abilities And it can posess people, causing their eyes to rot]]. Both are typical Zalgo traits. Blizzard confirmed that it's not the same as the Dark Voice though.

* Given the books, like Shadow of the Xel'Naga, Terran are not included in creation of Energy Beings, unlike Zerg and Protoss. Also, it was mentioned couple of times that Protoss are immune to Zerg infestation thanks to the Khala. Going through this, the Dark Templar Saga gives another suggestion with Legacy of the Void in mind: Amon's faction intentionally left Khydarin Crystals and hints on how to create the Khala not only because [[spoiler:it allowed Amon to take control over the Protoss later]], but also because it gave them ability to prevent natural combination of Purity of Essence and Form, which would make sense if hybrids worked for Amon's plans under condition of being created artificially.

As for regards to a sequel, it seems to me like the developers slammed the door on a sequel pretty hard. The ongoing story is done, the big bad is killed off for good, and the galaxy is at peace with pretty much everyone happy. Not to mention they killed off two gods and had one commit suicide. It will be pretty hard to top that and come up with something to raise the stakes again.

''Legacy of the Void'' reveals that [[spoiler:the Protoss and Zerg were uplifted by Amon's rogue faction of Xel'Naga who were dedicated to ''ending'' the cycles]]. The epilogue campaign also ends [[spoiler:with the last good Xel'Naga sacrificing his essence to Kerrigan to uplift her into a Xel'Naga herself]]. It's possible that the Xel'Naga's original plan was to do the same thing to ''all'' humanity after they became the "formidable psionic power" the manual from the first game claimed they would eventually become, but Amon and his cronies ruined it.

''Looking at Blizzard's franchises as a set of children, Warcraft and WoW is the one that gets everything it wants, the best things, and always gets them first. Diablo is the second child and has some good stuff, but preferential treatment goes to the favorite child of Warcraft. Starcaft meanwhile... Is like Harry Potter in the Dursley household. hand-me-downs only, barley being put up with, sent away for 90% of the year, and generally is better to be seen and not heard from. Looking at the long length of time it took between Brood War and Wings, it seems like they only just got around to it after running out of stuff to do with their other franchises.
