    should their be a hybrid race i hope so but it should be perement unlike the naga in WC3 but if they dident put them in it would ruin the story line because of zeretul's last mission.

    Permanent, what do you mean?

    Playable in the melee?

    I kind've liked how they did the Naga, only finishing the techtree would've been nice (What I mean is, I liked how they had a techtree available but not included in the Melee).

    Not in multiplayer but only in campaign and in the Scum Editor.
    It's a combination of Protoss and Zerg DNA. The operation to create these hybrid is lead by Duran the one who betrayed the UED and killed Stukov.

    lol i didnt play the first sc (i'm too young :D (14)) but it sounds cool :) Sounds like a lot of work for modders to complete the (maybe incompleted who knows?) techtree of this 4th race...

    Stukov's death wasn't cool... The only bad ass UED high ranked general got killed for trying to vanquishing the Zerg of Char's surface.

    Blizzard already ressurected him in the bonus missions in the Nintendo 64 Starcraft version. And yes these bonus missions were confirmed to be canon.

    The whole story short is that a Zerg Cerebrate ressurected Infested Stukov. Later on Raynor and an old Protoss Dragoon expiremented a cure they had made for infestation on Stukov. Stukov was cured but mysteriously he misses his infested form abit.

    Then it was later said that Kerrigan is too infested or too special for the cure to work on her.

    Yeah I've heard about that. Hope he returns.
    But what does canon mean?

    A cannon is something you shoot cannonballs out of :p
    Just kidding, it's an accepted law or standard, esp. in church;

    And from Hamlet :D
    --- O that this too, too sullied flesh would melt,
    --- thaw, and resolve itself into a dew;
    --- Or that the Everlasting had not fixed
    --- his canon 'gainst (self-slaughter!).

    Check my quote, I don't think I have it memorized correctly.

    (I think Tyranid's word choice is pretty bad, though)

    Anyone have speculation as to what the fourth race might have? Flyyyinnnggg ulllttrrraalissskss!!

    Cannon=A type of artillery that utilizes gunpowder to launch a projectile over long distances.
    Canon=Current "correct" lore, as in when retcon happens (they change lore), the old lore is no longer canon while the new one is. Canon is pretty much is it correct or not.

    Another race would make balancing more difficult and merely take away from all the other races. Please Blizzard include it in the campaign and map editor but never in the normal game...

    They might make a hybrid race in the sc2 expansion just for the campaigns. They won't make a 4th race for melee.

    Ofc they'll add it into the editor just like they did with the Tauren Marine. It will be your opponent in campaign but you won't be facing them in regular games like melee and multiplayer.

    Um, if you guys have different information than what I do, I'd really like to know where it's from. As far as I know, any mention of Xel-Naga is strictly fan speculation. Blizz has confirmed there will NOT be a playable 4th race. Now, I'm not saying that it won't be just like the Naga, but it could just as easily be a very limited (read: precious few) NPCs that show up from time to time in the campaign. We have no information either way yet.
