Type

A hive mind emulator is a terran structure used to mind control zerg creatures. They are available in the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign.

OverviewEdit

The emulator was developed by Egon Stetmann for Raynor's Raiders during the Second Great War. Stetmann based it on research into zerg DNA, where he located the Overmind's original strain. The strain provided enough insight on how the Overmind controlled the Swarm for it to be reproduced.[1]

Game UnitEdit

The emulator is unlocked in the zerg research tree after acquiring 25 zerg research points in Hyperion's laboratory.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

Mind Control: The emulator can permanently mind control a zerg unit for 50 energy at a range of 9. Hive mind emulators cannot control heroic units or drones. Mind controlled zerg will count towards player control. Hive mind emulators can control as many zerg as their energy allows, and players do not lose control of zerg if hive mind emulators are destroyed.

Notes

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past 50% structural integrity.[2]

Edit

DevelopmentEdit

The hive mind emulator was the last terran structure designed for Wings of Liberty. More work went into its design than some other terran structures.[3]
