    they really can't get rid of a "race" but more of the different factions, like in the end of brood wars, with the ued

    -I would like to see the zerg irradicated. It would be perfect. At the end of brood war the zerg become really powerful. But the Protoss/terran/some new race team together and finally destroy the race. Then in the expansion they fight eachother for control.

    For a 4th race, they could include the Zelnaga or something. We know in StarCraft regular, in that FMV Sequence, that giant blue ship was probably a Zel'naga ship. Sinnce no Carrier or Battlecrusier resembles it in anyway. If the Zel'naga were to come in and somehow revive the zerg after they were destroyed, then it could be a 4 race bloodshed. Though I don't think Zerg would exactly get snuffed out first. I think the Protoss would be the first to likely die, since they have the lowest forces at the end of Brood War. Fenix is dead, and Auir is still burning from the Zerg Invasion. So they don't have much there. They do have some forceson the Dark Templar homeworld, the name eludes me thus far but that amount is not enough to mean anything. That's why I think Kerrigan will wipe out the Protoss if SC2 ever comes out.

    To tell you the truth, I've dreamed of the Xel'naga as a race so long that I'm already bored of him. :)

    I was pretty ''wowed'' when I seen that movie sequence though. I went and used cheats to build all the units and everything and since I couldn't find it, I read the booklet for StarCraft and it told a lot of history so I assumed it was the Zel'naga. :p

    I could be wrong, though.

    There's no 'Z' in Xel'naga :)

    Xel'naga suck though, they got beat down by the early Protoss, and they got beat down by the early Zerg. They seem to possess a lot of mental power, as they can so easily make such powerful races, but no combat abilities or strength. Their sole purpose was sparking the whole story by making two of the three races. I would assume at this point they want nothing to do with the area of conflict. Unless they developed yet another race, which they can actually control for once, they wouldn't be able to stand against the Protoss or Zerg anyways. This has been proven already in SC history :p

    They should have some mental linnk with both races, that way they can just conrol or kill either of them at will. This way, they are highly more powerful then most might assume. This would also mean that Terran's would be royally screwd.

    or the other explantion for the ship in the opening sequence for Starcraft could simply be that it was designed before the finnal verson was put out. i remeber reading somewhere that carriers were originaly armed with some sort of "big gun" dont ask me where exaclty cause it was a while ago and i really dont remeber. but this theory is also surported by the opening sequence for brood war where there is a goliath that shoots a missle at a ling. this was orignaly one of the golaiths ground attacks in i belive alpha version i guess you be the judge

    Yeah, a lot of the cinematics don't match up with the actual game, sadly :-/

    While others, scarred from Blizzard Story Writers, make no sense at all! Like the opening one for SC, we don't know whose ship that is, or why it eradicated a small Terran Raiding Group. :(

    About the preview or watever in SC original that big carrier like thing, well the beam was inside of the thing right?

    How do we know what weapons are inside of a carrier? Maybe its for defence or something? :rolly

    That looked more like a flying fortress then a Carrier. A Carrier is shaft-like, while that shit appeared to be like a huge fortress all around.

    I suppose those are planet erradicating weapons. Since usually the games are played in the surface, the Protoss would not be so dumb as to use it and kill themselves, too :p

    That's why it doesn't show in games.

    well that makes a lot of sense but why not an awsome planet erradicator in a cinematic I personally hate zerg so I would love seeing char blow up.

    So, no one has any more thoughts on that big, bright blue ship that resembled the Temple of the Zel'naga? I think it is them, just because of how the ship looks compared to the actual in-game building.

    Also in the beginning the Terran could salvage. Not anymore.
    That's just how a Carrier looked. They've upgraded since then. lol. Remember they are one of the most powerful races around that corner of town.

    Of course, that makes perfect sence. "Sir, I recommend ditching the planatary destructo-matic plasma beam for 8 mini coopers with tiny gattling guns attached to them that fly around the ship and attack stuff, plus, they have a 6 month extension on their warranty if we buy in groups of 200 right now." "Sounds good Private!"

    LOL

    Well asume, either having little ships coming at out with lasers or having a "death beam" come from underneath the ship? You would have to position yourself over the enemy and that takes too long. The ship would take too much damage to be so close to an ememy ship.
    The smaller ships would make much more sense.
