A StarCrafts Carol
Beat by Creep
The episode begins with a group of blue terran forces idling around their base. Suddenly, medivacs pick up all of the troops and a siege tank left, which one medivac kicks a marine out to a make room for it. The camera cuts to eight marines relaxing comfortably in one medivac. The same cannot be said for the second medivac, which has four marines crammed into the hull with a tank. The third medivac has four widow mines.
The medivacs arrive over the red protoss base and drop their units. The red executor sees a falling marine, and, in a manner similar to checking for rain, sticks his hand out the window to check for dropping marines. The nexus is then crushed by a dropped siege tank. Then the units started to open fire. The probes scream as they are vaporized by the pure might of the terrans. One stalker kept shooting a marine, but the damage is negated by the medivac's healing beam, causing the marine to ignore it. The nexus then melts into a puddle from all the damage taken. The medivacs pick up all the troops and retreat.
The aforementioned stalker lies among the ruins of it's former base and cries. A phoenix arrives to chase down the medivacs, but it cannot find them until the stalker points the direction to it. The phoenix then attacks one medivac, knocking the passengers around. The pilot, a marauder, and a changeling (who backstabbed a marine) watch in horror as the ship's HP decreases at an alarming rate. Suddenly, the medivac is saved by the intervention of a battlecruiser, allowing it to escape with just an HP. The ship has been reduced to a barely-functional wreck with no hull and only one functioning engine.
The phoenix realizes that he is no match for the battlecruiser and attempts to escape but is shot down by the yamato cannon's long range.
- Changeling marine
- Widow mines
- Siege tanks
- Mothership core
Note: All protoss appearing in this episode are in the red team.
- The changeling backstabbing a marine with a knife is a reference to the Spy in Team Fortress 2, who can disguise himself as an enemy and backstab enemies.
- There are two zerg forces fighting in the background before the unit pick-ups, which is similiar to ZvZ.
