Starcraft Easter Egg - Hidden Credits in Cinematic

1. Start up original StarCraft (not Brood War expansion set).

2. Go to single player campaigns and click on the Terran campaign.

3. Watch the very last cinematic in the Terran campaign, it is titled the "The Inauguration".

4. At the beginning there is a scene of a fictional TV network (the Universal News Network). Scrolling across the bottom is a bunch of fictional stock symbols. If you pay close attention there are credits of people on the Blizzard team.

The capitalization is typed as it appears. The people's actual names can be found in the credits in the StarCraft manual.

Th Credits:

CarPNr -- Nick Carpenter, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists, his name also appears by the black hole Exit animation on the main menu

DUaNE -- Duane Stinnett, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

JoEYray -- Joeyray Hall, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists and under Cinematic Technical Artist/Video Engineer

SouSA -- Brian Sousa, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

SAmiA -- Matt Samia, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

HARley -- Harley Higgins II, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

ABeyTA -- Scott Abeyta, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

Some of the letters may be initials, in believe that these letters are:

BS -- Brian Sousa, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

SR -- Stu Rose, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

TJ -- Trevor Jacobs, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

SS -- Sharon Shellman, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

HH -- Harley Higgins II, listed under Cinematic 3D Artists

Along with the above there is the infamous ACME listed as well. It is the company of all the products in Loony Toons.

Some of the people may be listed under other things in the credits as well.

There may be more. These are just the ones I noticed. I'm not so sure on the initials but I have a pretty good hunch they are right.

The symbols move by pretty quickly so you have to keep your eye open. These symbols also appear towards the end of the cinematic and stay up for a longer period of time.

Joey Ray is also called by name in the opening cinematic in which the salvage crew gets obliterated by Protoss.

I have also noticed the work ASS appears in the fake stock market numbers sometimes.
