This book is dedicated to the legions of

StarCraft fans, who waited so long and so patiently. I

must also thank the wonderful folks at Blizzard with

whom it is always a privilege to interact, to my former

editor Jamie Cerota Costas, and my current editor

Ed Schlesinger. You are all fantastic! I look forward

to many more projects.

And finally, it’s dedicated to “Butch and

Sundance,” Paul Newman and Robert Redford,

whose cheerful presences helped guide its writing. A

special nod of thanks to Paul Newman, who led a life

that serves as an inspiration: a life dedicated to his

craft and to helping others. Thanks, Butch. We miss

you.

CHAPTER ONE

BADLANDS, NEW SYDNEY

2494

The sun was a merciless yel ow eye glaring down

at a landscape of rock, hard-baked Earth, the

hardiest of scrub brushes and the most stubborn of

life-forms. There was not a single cloud in the fiercely

blue sky to mitigate the intensity of its gaze, and the

promise of relief in the form of nightfal was many

hours away.

Movement cut through this barren desert; silvery

and sleek, it looked almost like water flowing through

a val ey, but it was nothing so natural or pleasant. The

swol en sun’s rays glinted harshly on the metal ic train

as it twined, snake-like, soaring through the badlands
