StarCraft: Scavengers: Issue 1 is the first issue of the StarCraft: Scavengers comic series.
Writer Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Faith) and artist Gabriel Guzman (Mass Effect: Discovery, Star Wars) join forces for StarCraft, a new series further exploring the expansive universe of Blizzard's hit game. A group of terran space scavengers hope to pull off the job of their lifetimes, pillaging a derelict protoss ship.
Aboard the Magpie, a Kel-Morian Combine salvage vessel, Caleb spoke with his old friend Kyra who brought him on the ship. They met with their leader, Captain Theban, who told them they plan to salvage a protoss ship, a risky act due to the treaty between the Terran Dominion and Daelaam, but also a very profitable one. The entire crew agreed to help in the operation. After the meeting, Theban took Kyra aside, asking if they could trust Caleb enough to bring him into their United Earth Directorate sympathizer movement, though Kyra expressed some uncertainty.
The group boarded the ship, breaking through one of the hatches. They reflected on the war between the protoss and zerg, and the level of protoss technology. Theban revealed that his true goal was a protoss gunnery power cell, capable to generating a massive beam, and which they would loot for themselves. As they worked on the power cell, Orry and her team discovered a sealed hatch, and after breaking in are engulfed in a blinding light, able to just barely see movement in it. Orry ran and attempted to radio Theban, but tripped, and was attacked by an unknown assailant. Her blood spattered on the wall.

The description of the comic originally referred to a treaty between the United Earth Directorate and Daelaam. This appears to be in error, as a treaty does exist between the Terran Dominion and Daelaam (as described in the official Scavengers description), whereas the UED is not known to have had any contact with the protoss after the Brood War. The reference to the UED was later removed from Dark Horse's website, but remains on the Amazon product description.
