Christmas Special: The True Meaning of StarCraft
A drop pod from the space releases MULE. It gathers bigger minerals and throws them to the command center. Slot machine on barracks obtains jackpot of three marines, and causes the overproduction of marine, medivac dropships and vikings from starport.
In the protoss main base, two stalkers find a sentry stuck between gateways and pylons. They are engaged in terran rush in the surprise attack. The immortal fights back with several hits, but he is run over by numerous marines. The colossus warps in on the robotics facility, but the vikings launch missiles at it. The colossus tries to accept "Press to warp back to Auir" button to escape, but is destroyed. Hopeless stalker sees the destruction of their base before he is gunned down. The area is captured as the blue flag raises, orbital command lands on the mineral area, and more drop pods of MULE's rain down.
