I don't believe that infested terrans should be able to control zerg at all, or at least not any better than standard overlords.

But all that's from a much earlier draft of my ideas. After receiving nothing but vitriol from the insane Starcraft fandom so far, I've decided I'm probably better off writing an original universe. Every non-Starcraft fanboy I've broached the topic with has told me so. They tell me that the Starcraft story is radioactive garbage and I'm better off writing an original universe.

The fact that Starcraft lore/story discussions can't ever discuss anything that doesn't revolve around stupid Kerry in some way is probably another nail in the coffin for my idea to turn it into a respectable scifi outing. I've tried to discuss Starcraft in forums for general military scifi/fantasy discussion and nobody's interested because the story is just that radioactive and the lore is just that shallow and uninteresting.
All my respect, but if you're going to rewrite the Starcraft lore starting from the plot of very vanilla (episodes I-III), then you better just write your own new universe Because basically that's what will come out from it - you will create totally different story, not Starcraft.
I would understand if you started from Brood War or Starcraft 2, or even last missions of episode III. Even writing alternative Starcraft 2 would be interesting.
If someone creates new stories or his alternative canon of given universe, he should put some limit and respect the basics to have the fundament to base your spin-off on. Otherwise it's just rip-off of IP.
