Can anything good come from a betrayal?

Starcraft is an awesome game. But more than that, it’s a love story; one that begins with a betrayal.

Sarah Kerrigan as the Queen of BladesSarah Kerrigan has worked hard to further the aims of Arcturus Mengsk, the Emperor of the Terran Dominion. But for some reason — perhaps because she and her comrade James Raynor are becoming a threat to him? — she is betrayed, and left to die alone on Antiga Prime.

But she doesn’t die. Instead of killing her, the Zerg take her, and she becomes the Queen of Blades: a force to be reckoned with.

After a long struggle — you’d have to play the game to appreciate just how long it is — Sarah Kerrigan finally has her revenge against the man who betrayed her.

But, although it could, the story doesn’t end there… after a great many trials, the Queen of Blades finds herself seeking the legendary Xel’naga.

OK, I’ve kind of spoiled the plot, just a bit, there. But, trust me, this story is one that deserves to have its time on the silver screen, and I sincerely hope that one day this will happen, because that’s one movie I’d love to see.
