    How do Zerg fly in space?

    Seriously, has this ever been explained? As far as I know Zerg fliers don't have any latent psionic abilities unto themselves, so how the hell are they able to not only survive the vacuum of space, but fly in it as well?

    they use the sunwinds or something like that i heard. might also be that they are using the gravitational fields and manipulate them.

    i've read that like 10 years ago or something, so im not sure about the source nor the credibility of this information^^
    buuut, if i wanted to know then i would probably just google it, thats like instant information right there instead of wailing through false claims in a forum

    I have a hard time believing a mutalisk can alter gravitational fields lol.

    im ofc talking about the bigger ones. you know that zerg can travel with hyperspeed and open up wormholes on their own? thats even more crazy

    Fuckin' Magnets. How does that work?

    Better answer to avoid an infraction:
    Because the Xel'Naga knew they would one day go into space, and made them that way?
    Call to arms, the trumpets sound
    Hand puppets storm the base, flags up now cannons rage
    All clowns head for the rear, slingshots fire to the air
    Toy horses start the charge, Robot chessmen standing guard
    Crossfire to the marionettes, Slip into the edge of death...

    Actually, since this spans both games, I'll open this back up. Don't hurt me.

    It stands to reason that the Xel'Naga made them flight capable in space, but I wanna know HOW. The Overmind could open wormholes using its vast psionic powers, and psi is sort of the "catch-all" for unexplained weirdness in Starcraft. But the lore makes it clear that rank and file Zerg do not possess controlled psionic abilities. So I want to know how the heck they're alive and flying in a vacuum. I must know....FOR SCIENCE!!!

    Well overlords, behemoths, and mutas all evolved from space faring species that were assimilated into the swarm, that's how those survive in space.

    Overlords have gases inside their bodies and that are released to produce propulsion, same with behemoths, mutas use their wings both in atmosphere and in space, but while in space they let out gas they their wings then push to propel themselves.

    Other zerg species ride inside of overlords and behemoths while in the vacuum of space.

    As far as I rememeber, all zerg are at least psionically sensitive, all they need is something to co-ordinate them.
    Meh.

    This is actually true, if you go to the starcraft wiki page and look at mutalisk, they do in fact expel gas to propel themselves through a vacuum, the wing flapping doesn't do anything, it's just muscle memory. Everything else are carried by Leviathans.

    As for breathing, zerg don't breathe, they utilize vespene as their air, which gets built into their genetic makeup, so they don't run out.
    Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
    So I chose the path of the Ebon Blade, and not a day passes where i've regretted it.

    What I want to know now, is why can't you sacrifice your units for vespine gas as zerg?!

    All that vespene gas has to be used somewhere.

    I figured it was quite obvious. They have space wings.

    They should learn a thing from the bugs in Starship Troopers and just use asteroids.
