In StarCraft, the Dropship is basically a spaceship that can transport your units from one place to another. They can be seen as a means of “deploying” units. This element of the game is similar to what you have to do in a business. It is not enough to produce items, you also need to bring them to a place where your customers can see and buy them, be it a physical location or software on a web server. If coordinated properly, Dropships can be used for surprise attacks. Again, a concept you find in the business world: you need to plan your release of the product according to the external market forces, be it special dates (like Christmas) or competitor products. If you catch your competitor unprepared, the competitor might need time to adapt to your new product.
