     \__/ [INT]
    Here is the script for the cinematics in Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, the
    long-awaited sequel of its predecessor. The cinematics here refer to the
    short movie you can access from the console on Hyperion's Bridge (from where
    you can also replay previous completed missions), which text/button is colored
    orange (while the mission's is blue). It will not include the short cinematics
    you will occasionally see at mission briefing or after completing a mission.
    Note that you can also access the cinematics menu via cheat code "eyeofsauron"
    (on the Hyperion bridge) to view all cinematics list. Careful however, as it
    is still considered using cheat by the game and achievements will be disabled.
    For a brief explanation on the format in this guide: the title of the 
    cinematics appeared first, then a commentary (*) if needed, followed by the
    scripts. Sentences in [] bracket are explanation of the event/situation,
    whlie those inside () bracket is my own commentary. The order of the cinematics
    listed here follow that which appear on the cinematics list using the cheat
    Thanks also for PyroDesu for some corrections on event descriptions.

    |    THE DEAL    | ============================================================
    \---          ---/
    * This is the opening cinematics.
    Arcturus :
       They say a man never really knows himself...
       until his freedom's been taken away.
       I wonder...
       how well do you know yourself?
    [ A chamber door opened and a man appeared behind ]
    Adjutant :
       Prisoner, step forward onto this platform.
    [ The man -prisoner- enters the chamber and the door closed, the mechanical
      equipments in the surroundings begun to operate ]
    Arcturus :
       Convict 626.
       Today... you go free.
       But as you'll soon learn...
       even freedom has a price.
    Adjutant :
       Combat suit sealed... and locked.
    Arcturus :
       You'll carry your prison with you. That armor will be your new cell.
       Make no mistake...
       War is coming.
       With all its glory...
       and all its horror.
       Mr. Findlay - your freedom awaits.
    Tychus (the prisoner) :
       Hell... it's about time.
    [ And the Starcraft II title appeared... tada... ]

    |    PUBLIC ENEMY    | ========================================================
    \---              ---/
    * Played after the opening cinematics
    Vermillion :
       ...and in other news today, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk held a press
       conference commemorating the end of the so-called Brood War some four
       years ago. Our own Kate Lockwell was on the scene.
    [ James Raynor is seen in a bar, drinking a lot, and the TV is on ]
    Lockwell :
       Emperor, the threat of a new zerg invasion is still very real - but instead
       of expanding our fleets, you've squandered trillions on hunting down has
       been rebels like Jim Raynor!
    Arcturus :
       Jim Raynor represents a clear and present threat to this Dominion! He is an
       unscrupulous, lawless revolutionary bent on spreading fear and dissertion
       across the sector! He and his ragtag band of miscreants have instigated open
       rebellion across the separate worlds - and stolen vast amounts of Dominion
       weapons and hardware!
    [ Raynor then look on a portrait of a woman - Sarah Kerrigan, when still being
      a human, in Ghost outfit (d*mn, she look far prettier than in SC1... @_@) ]
    Arcturus :
      I assure you, this criminal will be brought to justice... very soon.
    [ Enraged, Raynor drew his pistol and aimed it at Mengsk on the TV ]
    Raynor :
       It ain't over 'till it's over, you son of a bitch.
    [ And he shot the TV screen... bulls eye... then activated his computer,
      apparently just been back to his senses ]
    Raynor :
       Adjutant, are my troops ready yet?
    Adjutant :
       Your forces are prepared and awaiting your orders, Commander. Uploading
       tactical data now.
    Raynor :
       Good. 'Bout time we kicked this revolution into overdrive.

    |    OLD TIMES    | ===========================================================
    \---           ---/
    * After "Liberation Day" mission
    [ Raynor was in the bar again, still drinking, when a person in combat suit
      entered ]
    ??? :
       Y'know, for the most wanted man in the sector - you ain't that hard to find.
    [ Raynor slowly tried to grab his pistol ]
    ??? :
       I had to see it for myself, Little Jimmy Raynor... the people's hero.
    [ Realized who the man is, Raynor's hand grabbed his glass instead of his
      pistol ]
    Raynor :
       Tychus Findlay...
       Nice suit.
    [ Tychus slammed at the table ]
    Tychus :
       Pays to be prepared.
    Raynor :
       I heard they put you on ice. Life sentence. What, did they give you time
       off for good behaviour?
    Tychus :
       That's right, old buddy. I'm a model citizen now.
    Raynor :
       So to what do I owe the pleasure?
    Tychus :
       Just a friendly business proposition. Do you even know what the Dominion
       are doing out here?
    [ Raynor's bottle was empty ]
    Raynor :
       I'm guessin' yer about to tell me.
    Tychus :
       Digging up alien artifacts, old buddy. Your boy Mengsk has gone crazy for
       'em. But I got a contact that'll pay top dollar for every artifact we...
       liberate from the Dominion.
    [ Raynor tried to take another bottle, but Tychus grabbed it first ]
    Raynor :
       I guess I can hardly pass that up, now can I, Tychus?
    Tychus :
       Partners then. Sixty-forty.
    [ Tychus poured the drink in a glass then passed it to Raynor ]
    Raynor :
       Seventy-thirty. My way.
       Feels like old times already!
    Tychus :
       Old times.

    |    ESCAPE FROM MAR SARA    | ================================================
    \---                      ---/
    * After "Zero Hour" mission
    [ The Hyperion, Raynor's flagship, being surrounded by flock of Mutalisk ]
    Tychus :
       Damn Jimmy, you've been holding out on me.
    Raynor :
       Cuttin it pretty close there, Matt.
    Horner :
       Never left you hanging before, sir.
    Raynor :
       Fair enough. Just get us the hell outta here!
    Horner :
       All batteries, concentrate forward firepower. Spin up drives two and six!
       All hands brace for warp jump on my mark!
    [ A moment later, the Hyperion succesfully performed the warp jump, 
      vanished from Mar Sara sky, and reappeared in space orbit ]
    Raynor :
       What the hell happened? We ain't seen the zerg in years - why attack
       Mar Sara now?
    Horner :
       It's not just Mar Sara. You need to see this.
    [ Horner turned on TV records ]
    Vermillion :
       -Zerg swarm launched a full scale attack-
    Reporter :
       -Devastation spread throughout all outer rim planets-
    Lockwell :
       -Sustained heavy losses-
    Reporter :
       -Casualties in the billions-
    Reporter :
       -Minutes ago the zerg attacked a Dominion military research facility-
    [ Tychus joined in ]
    Tychus :
       Sweet mother of mercy.
    [ Back to the TV records ]
    Lockwell :
       -New, exclusive video footage confirms the Queen of Blades is in fact
       leading the swarm!
    [ Raynor appeared shocked at the last record, which showing Kerrigan, then
      sat on his chair ]
    Horner :
       We always knew she'd back. But what's she after?
    Raynor :
       She's come to finish the job.

    [ Video footage replay showing gun fight, then stopped at certain frame, and
      the Queen of Blades is seen there. Tychus was watching it. ]
    Hyperion Archive
    20:32 - Shipboard Time
    [ Tychus turned off the video replay, and just realized that Horner was
      behind him ]
    Horner :
       That's funny, convict, I don't recall giving you access to our database.
    Tychus :
       Just keeping up on current events, 'captain'. Seems this 'Queen of Blades'
       got everybody running scared. She don't look so tough.
    [ Horner turned on the video replay again, still showing the Queen of Blades ]
    Horner :
       You have no idea who she is, do you, Tychus?
    Tychus :
       Don't matter to me none.
    Horner :
       Well it matters to Jim. They were... close once.
    Tychus :
       ... Wait a minute... (laughing) you're tellin' me they were shacked up?!
    Horner :
       Apparently she was something else... Before the zerg took her. Turned her
       into that.
    Tychus :
       And Jimmy feels responsible.
    Horner :
       Honestly, if we have to face her again I don't know what he'll do.
    Tychus :
       Woman like that... there's only one thing to do.
    [ He put his cigarette on Kerrigan's face on the monitor ]

    \---                   ---/
    [ Raynor is seen walking through a corridor on the Hyperion while drinking
      from his flask, and suddenly the lights go out except the ones where he was
      standing ]
    ??? :
       James Raynor...
    [ And voila... Zeratul the Dark Templar appeared from the shadow ]
    Zeratul :
       ... I bring tidings of doom.
    Raynor :
    Zeratul :
       I have pierced the veil of the future and beheld only... oblivion.
    [ He appeared to suffer pains in his right hand, suddenly down on his knee,
      followed by Raynor ]
    Zeratul :
       Yet one spark of hope remains. You will hold her life in your hands...
       ... And though justice demands that she die for her crimes, only she can
       save us.
    [ Raynor seemed confused first but then realized something and get up ]
    Raynor :
       Wait a second, you're talking about Kerrigan?
       It's been four years! Y'show up outta nowhere -
    [ Zeratul grabbed his hand ]
    Zeratul :
       Time is short! You must understand!
    [ Apparently he left something on Raynor's hand ]
    Zeratul :
       The answers you seek lie within. Study it well, the fate of creation hangs
       in the balance.
    [ Zeratul vanished into the shadow, and all lights go normal again ]
    Raynor :
       ... Nice to see you too.

    |    THE PROPHECY    | ========================================================
    \---              ---/
    Zeratul :
       The zerg swarm came as was foretold.
       And the protoss, first born of the gods, rose to fight them.
       Now, the Xel'Naga that forged us all, are returning.
       But do they come to save, or to destroy.
    [ Zeratul is seen on a cavern, observing ancient glyphs. While walking
      around cautiously, group of Hydralisks attacking him, but Zeratul was able
      to evade and kill them. As he slayed the last one, a familiar sound was
      heard from somewhere near... ]
    ??? :
       I knew you'd find your way here... eventually.
    [ Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades appeared ]
    Zeratul :
       Your very presence defiles this place, Kerrigan.
    Kerrigan :
       Do you hear them, Zeratul? Whispering from the stars?
       The galaxy will burn with their coming.
    Zeratul :
    [ Zeratul disappeared from vision, then reappeared on the cavern ceiling
      above Kerrigan ]
    Zeratul :
       But you won't live to see it!
    [ He jumped and attempting to attack Kerrigan, but she quickly performed a
      counter somewhat like a shockwave which hold Zeratul immobile in mid-air 
      above her ]
    Kerrigan :
       Please... our petty conflicts mean nothing now.
       A storm is coming that cannot be stopped.
       Fitting, that we should face oblivion together.
    Zeratul :
    [ Zeratul managed to break Kerrigan's restraint on him and landed an attack
      on her, then jumped back. Later on, it's clear that Zeratul was able to
      slash and cut Kerrigan's left blade-wing, but he also appeared to suffer
      injury on his own right hand. ]
    Kerrigan :
       Fate cannot be changed.
       The end comes.
       And when it finds me...
    [ She regrew her missing blade-wing ]
    Kerrigan :
       I shall embrace it at last.
    [ She then left the place, and so did Zeratul ]
    Zeratul :
       The prophecy is uncertain.
       There is always hope.

    * Also appeared in the "Ghosts of The Past" trailer released prior to SC II
      launching, which basicaly a cinematic version of the ending on "New
      Gettysburg" mission in SC I where Mengsk left Kerrigan on Tarsonis.
    [ A ghost troop is seen running on a ruined battlefield, and as she reached a
      safe point, she uncloaked and then contacted her team. It's Kerrigan,
      before turned into Queen of Blades by the zerg. ]
    Kerrigan :
       This is Kerrigan.
       We've neutralized the protoss, but there's a wave of zerg advancing on
       this position.
       We need immediate evac.
    [ A man that appeared to be on a command ship above the planet, Arcturus
      Mengsk, responded to the request ]
    Arcturus :
       Belay that order.
       We're moving out.
    [ Another person, James Raynor, yelled at Mengsk's response ]
    Raynor :
       You're not just going to leave her!
    ( In SC I mission though, he said : "You're not just going to leave them?",
      the devs replace 'them' with 'her' in this cinematic... yeah, whatever... )
    Arcturus :
       All ships prepare to move away from Tarsonis on my mark.
    [ Back to planetside situation, Kerrigan must defended herself from incoming 
      Zerglings, and some Hydralisks ]
    Kerrigan :
       Boys... how about that evac?
    [ On the command ship ]
    Raynor :
       Damn you Arcturus. Don't do this.
    Arcturus :
       It's done.
       Helmsman, signal the fleet and take us out of orbit.
    [ On the planet below ]
    Kerrigan :
       What the hell is going on up there?
    [ She then feels something, and put on her visor. Through it, she saw
      incoming massive zerg waves surrounding her position quickly. Realized that
      the evac would never come, she put off the visor and threw down her weapon,
      as fear and desperation arose on her face. While numerous zerg begun to
      pour around her, she could only stare to the sky, then closed her eyes,
      prepare for the coming inevitable onslaught... or so she thought... ]

    [ Raynor's in Hyperion cantina, apparently falling asleep after having too
      much drink, suddenly woke up and accidentally touched a bottle near him and
      the bottle rolling and falling off the table. Luckily, someone else was
      there to catch it before it hit the floor. ]

      it being hold ]
    Horner :
       I've been cleaning up after you a lot lately.
    [ Horner release the bottle and Raynor pour another drink in his glass ]
    Raynor :
       Leave it alone, Matt.
    Horner :
       Same dream?
    [ Horner took a chair and sat near him ]
    Raynor :
       I said leave it alone.
    Horner :
       What happened to Kerrigan wasn't your fault...
    Raynor :
       Which part? Where she got left behind, or where she murdered eight billion
    Horner :
       Same old bullshit. You ain't going to listen.
    [ Horner put a badge on the table, then get up and about to leave the bar ]
    Horner :
       Man, do you even see what you're becoming?
    Raynor :
       We are who we chose to be, Matt.
    Horner :
       When you figure it out let us know. We're waitin' on ya.

      planet Haven surface ]
    Raynor :
       So I guess this is goodbye, Doc. I know you got a lot of cleaning up to do
       out there.
    Hanson :
       We'll manage somehow. I just hope you boys stay out of trouble. Those
       protoss are bound to be upset.

    Raynor :
       Well, me and the protoss go way back. I've helped them out a few times...
       Figure they might but me some slack.

       You know, you could always stay here. Settle down, make a new start...

      the name tag of his fallen men again ]
    Raynor :
       ...because some things are just worth fighting for.

    * The final and ending cinematics, after completing the "All In" mission.
    [ Some terran troops are inside a zerg structure, searching anything that still
      left after the artifact energy blast. They stopped at a point where there
      apparently a body lying on the ground. It's Kerrigan, but back in her human 
      form and... Gosh! She's n*ked!... Raynor arrived on scene and kneel on her
      side. (Hey, no peeking, Jim! XD) ]
    Raynor :
    [ Kerrigan slowly gained conciousness, while Tychus appeared behind Raynor.
      He seemed to be speaking with someone on the comlink. ]
    Tychus :
       You reading all this?
    Arcturus :
       You have your orders Mr. Findlay. Carry them out.
    [ He then pointed his rifle on Kerrigan's head ]
    Raynor :
       Tychus what have you done?
    Tychus :
       I made a deal with the devil Jimmy. She dies I go free.
    [ Kerrigan just stared at Raynor... ]
    Raynor :
       We all got our choices to make.
    [ Raynor prepared his pistol slowly... ]
    Tychus :
       Damn shame.
    [ And as Tychus finally pulled the trigger, Raynor moved his body covering
      Kerrigan, then quickly turn and point his pistol to Tychus... bang... Next, 
      the screen fades to black... ]
    Kerrigan :
    Raynor :
       It's okay I gotcha.
    [ As Raynor brought Kerrigan away with the sunset background, the scene shift 
      to the sky, where fleet of battlecruisers fly across... some debris are still
      falling down, hope it doesn't land on top of our hero and his now-human-again
      girlfriend, ex-Queen of Blades... ]
    [ The end... for now! ]
