The Command Center is the most important Terran building. Terran players start the game with one Command Center. It produces SCVs, the worker unit, and is at the root of the Terran Tech Tree. It is also the Terran resource gathering facility, and without it the Terran player cannot gather resources. Command Centers can be upgraded into either an Orbital Command or a Planetary Fortress.
The Command Center can be lifted and flown around, albeit very slowly. One of the unique elements of the Terran race is that Command Centers can be built inside a Terran's main base (usually above the ramp on high ground) and then floated to expansions.
