The Space Marine is the basic combat unit in StarCraft. It is the dominant unit in the early part of the game, the only protection between your own base and the enemy. Space Marines are produced in the Barracks and will be used as a basic example, in this book, for build orders. Just like a product needs a number of parts to be able to make a single sale, a lone Space Marine is the weakest unit of the game. Their real power shows when they act in a group, with other units supporting them.
