Blizzard's release of StarCraft was eagerly anticipated by Real Time Strategy fans, and with good reason. Instead of two similarly powered enemies facing off, the three distinct races in StarCraft have unique capabilities and strategies. Everyone still competes in the RTS genre's typical race for resources, but that's the only shared trait. Terrans can move their bulky mechanized bases as necessary, while the reptilian Zerg grow their colonies and warriors from mutating larvae. Meanwhile, the noble Protoss warp in equipment from their home world using psionic powers. Not only does Blizzard juggle the races' playability and match it with superb art and sound effects, it also weaves together an engrossing three-act plot. Early on, as a Terran Magistrate, you spend a breathtaking 30 minutes defending against a Zerg onslaught. As the story unfolds around you, you'll experience the Zerg's hive mentality, and decipher the mysterious Protoss by the game's dramatic conclusion. Missions vary in scope and

Did you know that Gui Montag (The Firebat Hero in The Campaign Editor) is closely related to Guy Montag, a fireman hero from The Ray Bradbury Book, "Farenheit 451"? Nice to see Blizzard putting in a subtle joke!
You can only have 200 men max with or without food for thought.
My idea to playing Starcraft, both original and expansion are all the same: create defense first. If I play as Terrans, I would: harvest enough minerals to make barracks and supply depots. After you build about four supply depots and two barracks, make lots of marines. Then, build bunkers all around your base(preferrably high elevation), and put at least two marines in each one(depending on their importance. Then, build an academy and research the item that increases marine attack range. This also allows you to train firebats, which you should place in heavily attacked bunkers for close attacks. Then, build a factory and add on a machine shop. After that, harvest enough gas to build at least ten seige tanks. Research the siege tech ability for the tank and set them up all around the entrances to your base after you do that, build a starport and get wraiths to back up your seige tanks from air attacks. If you find that you many of your enemies are attacking you in certain areas, then empty your bunkers except for one marine in each in less-attacked areas and bring half of your seige tanks into those areas that are threatened. After you do that, move wraiths above the bunkers and siege tanks. Keep at least one seige tank between two bunkers and one wraith every once in a while around you almost "deserted bunkers" that you emptied before. Place one firebat in each of the heavily attacked bunkers to provide extra defense. This is very effective against the Zerg, since most of them attack in groups, where your bunkers and wraiths, especially seige tanks, can take them out quickly. But, as always, keep at least 3 SCV's around to repair the splash damage from the seige tanks and also from your enemies. Against the protoss, though, you might need extra air and ground defense, since they attack in groups and are very powerful.
When you get to the second episode(Zerg) and your getting tired of having Terran forces hit you then run, read this!! First spawn 2 groups of 12 Zerglings. Then evolve the burrow ability. Then put group 1 in front of that jelly stuff, then put group 2 on the jelly stuff. make them all burrow. Then when the enemy invades make group 2 unborrow the enemy will go after them, while they atack group 2, make 1 unborrow and attack from behind. Squish!!!
To beat a computer player easily with Zerg just make Mutalisks right away as fast as you can and make half of them Guardians and kill the spore colonise with Guardians and then use both to kill everthing else.
Build supply depots in you entrance all the way across (make sure there is no space between them), then build bunkers behind them and fill them with marines. Put one or two missle turrets behind those. You can put siege tanks behind the bunks but either leave them unsieged or get an scv up by the supply depots to repair the splash damage. This works even better if you upgrade your marine's firing range. Note: This defense works best against Protoss computers because the zeolots if they try to attack you wont be able to get in and will pace in front of you defense, however dragoons will shoot your bunkers which is why siege tanks are nice. Also Zerglings can run through the gaps in the Supply depots so be carefull of those, you're also going to want to get a Science Vessel(for cloaked units) and some type of flying attacker because if someone cloaks a ghost and Nukes you, your screwed.
To get a screenchot simply press "print screen" on your key board.
To have Zerg Music while playing press: ENTER radio free zerg ENTER and you should hear some music. Note: This only works for Zerg.
Very quickly in the beginning build a plasma cannon. Then send one or two of your drones to attack the enemies. Hopefully they won't have any defenses. Attack their scv's, drones, etc. The computer will send them after you most likely. Then you can lure them right back to the cannon. This will only work in single player because in multiplayer no one is stupid enough to chase the drones.
Send your drones to work mining minerals and build one more drone quickly. Then send your overlord exploring to see where the enemy's base is. When your drone pops up you send it to mine until you have enough for a spawning pool (I think its 200 minerals) and then send one drone to become a spawning pool. Then while its building you should get 150 minerals and you'll have 3 lava build 3 zerglings (50 minerals each only 2 larva is sufficient sometimes) and right when you get them send them to the enemys base (if you do it fast enough they shouldnt be prepared for it). I would recommend using this strategy on a small map Blood Bath for example or some 64x64 map.
To wipe out a enemy quickly, first select zerg as your race, then as soon as you start build zerg lings. you wan't a whole lot, then begin hunting for your enemy's. Normally this early they won't have hardly and offense or defense.
A good way to build a crushing defense is to first place bunkers across the entrance into your base fill these bunkers, and build air to air missle defense, so you can uncover any cloaked units, then put some siege tanks behind the bunkers on siege mode, and finally some ghost's to the side.
