You Fired is the seventh episode of the third season of StarCrafts. It is the fifty-seventh episode overall.

Plot Edit

The episode begins with a hellbat walking into a factory's attached tech lab, with a poorly drawn request for infernal pre-igniters. The marines then begin research in a rave-like fashion, with the song Arriba Mami playing in the background. Halfway through testing, a lab marine causes an explosion in the laboratory when dousing a reactive solute on a solvent, blowing him out of the tech lab burning. Nevertheless, the marines continue their research.

A few marines and a ghost are shown testing out the infernal pre-igniters. A marine shoots it at a target, burning the target and an observing marine to ashes. The lab marine claps and ghost jots down on clipboard.

One of the lab marines carries the completed product to the factory. Suddenly, a barracks kicks the factory off into the distance, throwing the lab marine away, and attaches itself to the tech lab. A marauder comes into the tech lab with another poorly written request for stimpacks. Music begins playing again as the marines continue research.

Epilogue Edit

A lab marine injects stimpack into a marine for a test. The marine begins shaking to the point of blurred vision, experiencing an adrenaline rush. The lab marine hands him a rifle, which the marine fires so quickly that he is pushed around the room by the intense recoil.

Characters Edit
