    Introduction
    ------------
    Starcraft is a RTS (real time strategy) game. it has you playing as one of 
    three races fighting for control of the galaxy. This game is simply one of 
    the best I've ever played. The expansion, Brood Wars only adds to that 
    greatness. In this FAQ, I will show what buildings you need to build, in 
    order to build other ones. The Tech Tree.
