In StarCraft, the Barracks are the first production facility to produce combat units (the Space Marines). Building the Barracks also allows building other, more technologically advanced, production and research facilities, making the Barracks a cornerstone of any build order. The Barracks can be compared with the very basic structure of an enterprise with sales and marketing: No matter how good your product is, you still need to market and sell it!
