Started playing the Orange Box and got to the point in HL2 where

Spoiler for Hiden:
You go into a box car and there is a guy with a Vortigant "friend".

If I keep playing this is going to be explained, correct?  I hope? I also noticed

Spoiler for Hiden:
when the transporter was going haywire, there was one in the room with Alyx, but I thought that was some sort dimensional screw up going on.  Guess not.

I was also curious what might have happened if
Spoiler for Hiden:
I had shot the Vortigant as soon as I saw it.

It's sort of explained but, as with many things with HL2's story, you have to look real hard:

Spoiler for Hiden:
The Vortigants were a slave race to the rest of the aliens and forced to fight you in HL1 so the ones that have been freed fight by the side of the humans.

When you meet Eli (you'll know when) there is collection of newspaper articles on the back wall. Read those and you'll pick up a lot more backstory than what everyone tells you. A lot of the story comes from inference and in how you (Gordon) are perceived. I think one of the things that stunned me the most about HL2Ep1 was the scene where a major character lays out great swathes of exposition which not only filled in a lot of blanks but helped me understand a lot of what was going on and what was at stake.

Also, I believe the game will not allow you to shoot the vortigaunt.
