The Dark Templar Saga is a trilogy of books written by author Christie Golden. It details events in protoss history and serves as a prequel to StarCraft II storyline, setting up some plotlines and foreshadowing some of its events. It was written concurrently with StarCraft II's storyline.[1] The Dark Templar Saga was originally said to take place in the fourth year after the Brood War, putting it many months or a year before StarCraft II.[2] However, the timeline in StarCraft II: Heaven's Devils lists it as occurring in 2503.[3] In regards to links to timeline articles, this wiki has gone with the '03 timeframe.

Christie Golden described the first novel, Firstborn, as "kind of a thriller/action/mystery" novel[4][5] and "Bladerunner meets Indiana Jones".[6]
