Carrier Career is the fourteenth episode of the third season of StarCrafts.
The episode begins with a stargate floating idly. Suddenly, it attempts to warp in a carrier but it has a trouble fitting the carrier through the warp rift. Chrono boost is cast to speed up the warping. Eventually, the carrier fits through the stargate.
The carrier's captain requests four interceptors to be built. The engineer demands minerals, so the captain reaches into his pocket and pays him. Jazz in Paris begins as interceptors are built. The carrier attacks a group of red hydralisks. However, the interceptors are quickly destroyed by the hydralisks' acid spines. The captain continuously pays the engineer to construct more interceptors. The cycle repeats several times until the carrier is out of interceptors. The captain requests eight more interceptors but he is out of minerals.
On the carrier's screen, the executor calls the captain on Skype to state the obvious. The captain is alarmed to see that the carrier is not only defenseless but is rapidly losing health. He begs the engineer for more interceptors for free, but the engineer does not budge. Even as the carrier begins exploding, the engineer still does not give in to his request. However, his stinginess is punished when the carrier is shot down by a lone hydralisk, causing it to crash and explode.
- Several programs and webpages can be seen on the carrier's computer, including:
- A protoss logo in place of Finder on the dock.
- StarCraft II
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Premiere
- The Reddit page for StarCraft II
- The official CarbotAnimations page on YouTube
- This episode marks the first appearance of the waving hydralisk.
- Nazeebo's mask and Arthas's helmet, from Diablo III and World of Warcraft respectively, can be seen inside the carrier.
- The carrier computer's operating system is labeled "Macintoss". This is a portmanteau of "Macintosh", an Apple computer brand, and "protoss".
- The Endless Locusts battle from "ZvZ" can be seen on the background at the final part of episode.
