Since Starcraft is basically a rip-off of Warhammer 40,000, which ripped off elements of Starship Troopers, this thread is pretty much pointless. Everyone inspires everybody. Original ideas are rare, especially in the games industry.
just necroing this to say:
The Negh'var came out in 1994 (all good things, TNG)
Starcraft came out in 1998
from what i can see, Starcraft based theirs on an altered Negh'var,
and the Bortas'qu added some of those new elements back to Star Trek.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. Live Long, And Prosper.
I realized the connection from day one of the Bortasqu'. Its Auto-Cannon is very much like the Yamato Cannon(Which in turn is a Homage to Space Battleship Yamato) from the Battle Cruiser and it has a similar shape.
That is why my Bortasqu' was named the may'duj... heehee.
