"Matthew, that was very rude! Fully-automated bases are quite expensive!"

- Mira Han, after Raynor's Raiders destroy a merc starport(src)

Merc starports are fully-automated, mobile, orbital production facilities operated by Mira Han and Mira's Marauders. During the Second Great War, Mira utilized several of these starports in a skirmish with Raynor's Raiders and the Hyperion. The Raiders destroyed the starports, much to Mira's annoyance.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Merc starports regularly manufacture griffons, valkyries, and battlecruisers to attack the Hyperion and Valerian's Space Station. They take a lot of firepower to destroy, but should be prioritized for destruction to stem the flow of enemy reinforcements.


The merc starport concept resembles the star base, a building cut early in StarCraft II's development that was an upgrade to the starport, and could manufacture ships while in flight.
