Amon wanted to troll the Protoss before ending their stand decisively, and his monologuing throughout the mission could be interpreted as his style of trolling/humor.

[[WMG: The Terran Vikings' Lanzer Torpedos were reverse-engineered from Protoss Scouts' Antimatter Missiles]]
The stats on the Lanzer Torpedos are exactly the same against armored targets, but Terran technicians improved them to work better against other targets besides armored ones. The ''VideoGame/WingsOfLiberty'' campaign even has the antimatter-based Ripwave Missile upgrade to give them SplashDamage, curiouser and curiouser.

Assuming that the mission takes place in or around Ulnar and that "As far as laws of physics are concerned, Ulnar should not exist." there is the opportunity for the writers at Blizzard to reveal the contents of the archive from ''In Utter Darkness'' and fulfill the curiousity of fans who wondered what could be contained in the archive vault.

The Terrans you control in "Belly of the Beast" wouldn't have known enough about the Zerg Swarm to identify that strange Zerg creature that kept hatching eggs to send at them, and her MO in that scenario is similar to Zagara's when Kerrigan confronts her in ''Heart of the Swarm''. And she looks exactly like Zagara.

** Weird i always thought that the cerebrate was killed on the dark templar assault before killing the overmind, after all the overmind brings the cerebrate to Aiur during the campaing and that the second one was disposed after the broodwar for outliving their usefulness to kerrigan, you know with the broodmothers and all that.

The Zerg creep, if left unattended, will eventually cover the whole planet, and then seep down into the core, at which point the planet itself becomes a sentient Zerg organism, capable of moving through space like Mogo or Ego or Zonama Sekot, and containing its own hive consciousness, like a form of super cerebrate, second only to the Queen.

** Close. Very close. (Note that the Spoiler Tags are there for a reason. A BIG reason. Read at your own risk.) [[spoiler: Jim does forcibly board the ship, but only succeeds because Valerian never had hostile intentions towards him; rather, he wanted to enlist Jim's help with the final artifact (which he does, to the crew of the Hyperion's chagrin). After all the artifacts are obtained, Valerian snatches half the Dominion fleet and teams up with Raynor to assault Char. And their assault is successful - the Zerg on Char are destroyed, and Kerrigan is cured and rescued in one giant CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming. Jim even takes a bullet for her, and kills Tychus.]]

Tassadar will arrive late in the campaign. Summoning him back out of the aether will likely involve the Xel Naga artifact being brought to the temple on Shakuras, or a mission on Aiur. Tassadar will fully return to the land of the living, and the Twilight Deliverer shall once again be playable in all his messianic glory. Either immortal or scripted to respawn, possessing a dual-purpose ground-and-air attack, and powerful spells from both the High Templar and the Dark Archon. Given his DiscOneNuke potential, you probably will not be able to get him until very late in the game, unless you skip side plot missions, and his mission might even be a PointOfNoReturn. But for that handful of missions before the grand finale, he will make your fights a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of]] [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomp]].

** Narud was manipulating Valerian, along with everyone else; Valerian really was as good as his word. On the subject of Arcturus, however, it is quite possible that he wasn't entirely on-board with Narud's hybrid project; he ordered the "termination" of everyone who had ever worked in the Castanar lab (which would serve better to completely shut down the hybrid project there than to cover it up), and it's possible that he didn't know exactly what Narud was doing in the Skygeirr lab, only that it was a weapons research lab.


''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.

The queen of blades isent exactly nice or trustworthy, but we see with her allowing raynor to leave that she can show mercy, but of course she couldent let the cerebrates live as they pose the risk of reforming the overmind, so the only way these two facts can coexist: she made the BW cerabrate something else, perhaps wipeing its memory just to be sure, she reworked the cerabrate into the first broodmother, Zagara

* ''Wings of Liberty'' seems to indicate that Mengsk is in a situation somewhat like [[ThePhantomMenace Nute Gunray]] and the Trade Federation, in that he's made a deal with an unknown being who turned out to be a lot more powerful than he expected and now he had no choice but to go along with them.
