dimension =/= alternate reality
Thanks Metzen for befuddling that nicely.

we always knew that the Tempest Keep was a dimensional ship and we always knew that the BL existed in a different dimension.
this is not new
A 2006 quote... explaining the fact that Tempest Keep is an interdimensional fortress...
Why is this even an issue 7 years later? Yes, Tempest Keep can jump realities, it's how the Naaru got to Outland in the first place.
The Great Darkness Beyond and the Twisting Nether are two different dimensions/realities, like the Emerald Dream and the Elemental Planes are. The Draenei are from Argus, which is a planet on the Great Darkness Beyond.
But this has NOTHING to do with the "different timelines". That's a completely other subject.
So, these reality-jumping ships could theoretically travel between the Warcraft and Starcraft universe?

Blizzard is reeeeeeally struggling with lore these days. It really shouldn't be that hard.
Please note, it's a tinfoil hat edition, which is just Stickney's outlet for wild speculation for fun.
Though again, Prince Malchazaar does say all realities are open to him.
"There is good and evil in this world; we must find the black and white in the gray."
The Great Darkness Beyond is, on other words, the outer space.

Honestly I think "dimensional ship" is just a buzzword. The "dimensions" being visited are probably just like warp space, but for Warcraft. Ultimately the ships are just a way to get from A to B.
If not, however, then this gives whole new meaning to Prince Malchezaar's declaration that "All realities, all dimensions are open to me!"
people use the word 'dimension' rather willy nilly
there are different ways to use dimension, personally i think dimension should simply mean any measurable scale such as of distance or time,,, A Dimensional ship that travels only in 3 spacial dimensions is still a dimensional ship, is it not?
but since we aren't using it that way, dimension and alternate reality can mean the same thing; but sometimes a dimension is a continuum of multiple related timelines or realities , and different dimensions are comepletely independent of eachother
