Wasn't Blizzard supposed to make a game where you play as a Terran ghost? I remember reading an ad about in a catalog that came with Warcraft 3.

They were, but it's been postponed indefinitely:

Here's some info on the Zerg:

http://news.filefront.com/whats-new-wit ... rcraft-ii/

One thing I'm sorta wondering is how they're going to explain the evolution of the Terrans / Zerg / Protoss in the context of the StarCraft storyline.

One possibility that occurs to me is that maybe each of the Terrans / Zerg / Protoss were conducting research on a "next-gen" army in secret since their wars weren't going as well for them as they had hoped. StarCraft I was with the original forces and StarCraft II was with the new ones.

ie. the Protoss in SC2 should be seen not as being changed from those in SC1 but rather as being upgraded.

It'd be cool, also, if you could play SC2 armies against SC1 armies. eg. SC2 protoss against SC1 zerg. The SC2 protoss, by virtue of being upgrades, could totally dominate over the SC1 zerg, even though the SC2 protoss would still be evenly matched against the SC2 zerg (for example).

Well, they've already said there was a period of 4 years between the first and second games. Plenty of time for research, development, etc. amongst the Terrans, especially since they were starting much of that development during the first war. As for the Protoss, the changes are mostly explained by them pulling in resources from very distant colony worlds, as well as making changes due to the loss of manufacturing resources on Aiur, and the improved integration of the Dark Templar and the rest of Protoss society.

And the Zerg, well... they're just rapidly evolving sons of bitches. And it hints at further metamorphosis... I wonder if there will be any Protoss/Zerg hybrids in this game.

Well, if that bonus misson from SC1 doesn't get explained in at least another bonus mission, I might be bummd.

A new unit for Starcract 2. Terra-tron:

Only problem with this unit: what happens if it's mind controlled?
