Merc starports are mobile, orbital production facilities operated by Mira Han and Mira's Marauders. They deployed several of them in a skirmish with Raynor's Raiders and the Hyperion, but they were destroyed.[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.
