Unlock number 10 is a video, which acts kind of like a history lesson. The video includes some concept art pieces we haven't seen before. The file (Part1_EN-US.flv) is the first video of the two part history lesson:

A New Era
Do you know your history? For centuries, the terrans spread from planet to planet in the Koprulu sector, wholly consumed with their ambitions and internal conflicts. In 2499, everything changed....

Centuries ago four prison ships from earth veered off course and journeyed deep into the remote Koprulu Sector. There they crash landed on the planets of Tarsonis, Moria and Umoja. Cut of from earth, the survivors established colonies throughout the sector.

The largest, Tarsonis, was founded by a powerful, yet increasingly oppressive government, called the Confederacy. Spurred by the terrible acts of this government, Arcturus Mengsk formed the Sons of Korhal. This rebel army fought to overthrow the confederacy and liberate the Koprulu sector. Even as Mengsk and his resistance fighters fought to overthrow the corrupt Confederacy. A much greater threat confronted the Terrans.

Without warning, massive alien warships appeared, and surrounded the confederate planet of Chau Sara. Calling themselves Protoss, the aliens incinerated the planet's surface, and then mysteriously withdrew. The planet had been infested by another type of alien; the Zerg. These monstrous creatures threatened to overwhelm Terran space, and the Protoss sought to eradicate them before they spread.

The Zerg had already reached the neighboring planet Mar Sara, and marshal Jim Raynor fought to save the terrified colonists, as the confederate government abandoned them to the alien menace. The Sons of Korhal intervened, saving thousands of lives from the rampaging Zerg and enigmatic Protoss.

Disgusted by the Confederacy Raynor joined rebels and met Sarah Kerrigan. Kerrigan was a former confederate Ghost operative, and she shared Raynor's desire for a liberated Koprulu sector. They grew close as the battle with the Confederacy escalated. But Mengsk went too far in his hatred and ambition, he ordered devices placed on the confederate capital worlds of Tarsonis to lure the Zerg and annihilate the population.

The Protoss, lead by executor Tassadar, decided to help the Terrans defeat the Zerg, instead of purging the planet of life. Mengsk sent Kerrigan to stop Tassadar's interference. With Kerrigan battling the Protoss, the Zerg overwhelmed Tarsonis, and decimated the population. Having achieved his goals, Mengsk left the planet and abandoned Kerrigan to the aliens.

Sickened by Mengsk's treachery, Raynor quit the Sons of Korhal. He raced to the planet's surface to save Kerrigan, but was too late. No trace of her remained.

Unlock number 11 is yet another before-seen art piece.
