The Protoss obviously have the most advanced technology. The Zerg have no technology at all and the Terran are just humans with slightly better technology than we have right now.

The zerg have the most advanced biotechnology in the galaxy.

They have no more advanced biotechnology than a toxic snake has advanced technology on toxins.

I did not realize that there was a great snake collective consciousness that designed organic toxins, and invented toxic snakes to deliver them.

Random.

No seriously, I always enjoyed playing terran. Siege tanks were awesome. On the other hand, protoss had dark templars, which potentially wreak havoc on your supply chain (and everything else...) if you're terran.

Edit: Heh, when I swa the thread all I read was "which race"...but obviously protoss have the most advanced technology

That's fairly superficial, though -- there are lots of easy ways to make serious mistakes that are devastating if your opponent capitalizes on it.

Dark templar aren't special in that regard -- they just happen to strike at one of the more common mistakes (inadequate detection) and have a sort of 'coolness' factor. They gain a bit of undeserved notoriety because losing because you couldn't defend against dark templar doesn't offer any false hope; a pair of high templar clearing out your supply chain* is just as much of a loss, but if you don't really understand the economics, you will suffer the illusion that you are still in the game.

*: Assuming, of course, you aren't granted comparable compensation -- e.g. your let opponent psi storm your SCV's because you were focused on (successfully) wiping out his probes with a vulture blitz or have a lethal push walking over an opponent's base

The Protoss defiantly had the cool factor down to an art and Carriers could be a major pain to any defensive line. However I still have to go with Terrans for the reason of Battle Cruisers, Siege tanks (I'm about to drop the hammer and dispense some indiscriminate Justice!) and Ghosts with some nuke silos.

Likewise I didn't know the Zerg had.

The canon is pretty clear on that the Zerg basically assimilate genetic code of other species, they don't research their own. Together with the Borg originally conceived as insects...

Yes, the Zerg assimilate, but just to get new ideas and bases to work with; every species of Zerg was designed by the Overmind. e.g. the Zerg assimilated the Slothien, and from that the Overmind engineered the Hydralisk.

Some units -- e.g. the Defiler -- may have even been invented from scratch.

We see the fruits of the Overmind's labor in Brood War (the invention of the Lurker and Devourer aspects), and even in the original Starcraft (Infested Terrans, and the Queen of Blades).

Well, that's a reasonable point yes.

I wouldn't call it 'technology' though.

Damn the sun! I tan the skin on my face from the computer and then the sun comes in and make it's all uneven. The computer makes a nice consistent tan on my face.

This reminds me of something, since this is PF!

I believe that there is actually some type of aliens out there in the universe that is similar to Protoss. I bet they're much smarter than us humans. I bet they already figured out physics theories such as relativity and perhaps beyond these dumb theories. They already know that we are here, trust me (theories of existance of UFOs proves this). They just want to keep their identities private, and they want to give us the chance to use our own smarts to figure out how to travel around the universe, then we will have the chance to see them face to face someday.

Well.. the problem with the protoss is that the race became so advanced technologicaly that all of the aliens population became super stupid and thats why they couldn't beat the zerg. Kinda like how it's happening to us here on earth.
