This phrase comes for the RTS PC Game, Starcraft. It is a phrase that is used by the Protoss race that is commonly used at the beginning and/or the end of a meeting pertaining to serious Protoss issues by members that have a high status in Protoss society (e.g., members of the Protoss Conclave). It is a way to greet your fellow Protoss or bid them farewell.

In the original Starcraft, meetings would often begin with the phrase En Taro Adun, although the use of this phrase was not limited to meetings. Adun was a legendary figure in Protoss history, who rid the Protoss homeworld of Aiur of the Dark Templar. Later, in the expansion set, Brood War, the phrase En Taro Tassadar would also be employed, after Tassadar sacrificed himself to destroy the Zerg Overmind.

Most likely, the phrase En Taro roughly means "Hail," "Glory to," or "In Honor of," much like the Nazis during WWII would greet each other with "Hail Hitler" or "Sieg Geil" (Hail Victory). The phrase En Taro is always followed by the name of a glorious Protoss hero that accomplished something extraordinary. The use of the phrase itself invokes pride, courage and hope. Sometimes when the phrase is used to end a conversation, it seems to be another way to say, "Godspeed."
"En Taro Adun, Executor. There is no time to waste. We must join our bretheren in battle!"

"En Taro Adun, Executor. I am Judicator Aldaris."

"...We will meet you on the other side of the Warp Gate. En Taro Tassadar."

"En Taro Adun, Executor. There is no time to waste. We must join our bretheren in battle!"
