    Terrans canonically have nanofabricators and reprogram personalities a la the Dollhouse show. I wouldn't be surprised if they can mass produce functional people like in that Resident Evil movie where Michelle Rodriguez dies twice.

    Then Amon should have renamed Moebius as his personal Umbrella corporation after enslaving them

    How am I only now realizing that Stukov should have punched a boulder to defeat Duran?!
    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    *shrugs* You just didn't think of it before hand, it's perfectly fine. I'm sure others didn't until recently either.

    The dates in the official timeline are highly suspect. Blizzard expects us to believe that the Great War lasted a total of six months.

    In fact, a number of writers have assumed that it literally takes seconds for Zerg to produce units and structures (and typically forget the fuel requirements). This is absurd, since the Terran and Protoss could never keep up with that. Even Tassadar's suicide attack would have failed because his carrier would have exploded in orbit due to hitting so many Zerg on the way.

    The manga has a much more believable depiction, where it takes a month to establish a hive cluster before it begins its assaults on nearby targets.

    Then they should have added in a detail saying that only the best of the best in terms of zerg production is kept, the rest are discarded. They kind of tried to explain this via the Ultralisk lore in SC2.

    How long do you guys suppose the Great War actually lasted if treated remotely realistically?

    In canon the Fall of Tarsonis is literally 24 hours, during which half the pop (1+ billion) are evacuated.

    We can base a realistic time frame on the amount of time it would take to evacuate a billion people. During 9/11 on modern Earth, it took 9 hours to evacuate 500k in New York by sea (largest in history).

    For Tarsonis, this translates to an absolute minimum of two years divided by how many New York-sized cities it has that were able to evacuate. At the same time, they have to deal with ravenous zerg trying to eat everyone. The only this makes sense is if the Zerg let them escape for a month.

    Are you sure on the evacuated numbers? I don't recall the lore saying how many actually escaped the planet.
