Me: Alright, so we’ve gotta do some missions before the IFF is installed. We can Investigate Project Overlord, Inspect the Normandy Crash Site, recruit The Justicar or The Assassin, Help Zaeed, or we an go see what Garrus, Tali, or Mordin want to talk to us about.
Mom: Why do we care what they want?
Me: Because they probably want us to do missions with them.
Mom: But I don’t feel like helping them with anything.
Me: Then you can pick one of these other missions.
Mom: But they all sound boring.
Me: I don’t know what to tell you.
Mom: Fine, let’s go see what they want.
We stop in on Mordin first. He explains that he was not entirely honest about his involvement with the STG earlier, a conversation which we never actually had with him because Mom doesn’t care. He explains that years ago, the Krogan were beginning to adapt to the genophage, and he was part of a team that modified the disease and re-infected the Krogan. And now Krogan mercenaries have kidnapped one of his colleagues to force him to make a cure.
Mom: Tell him we don’t have time for this, let’s see what the other two want.
We head down to Deck 3 to speak with Garrus. He’s located the man who sold out his team of vigilantes on Omega, and wants your help to go murder him.
Mom: Ehhh, tell him no, but maybe we’ll come back to him after seeing what the last one wants.
We speak to Tali in engineering, who has been accused of committing treason against the Quarians, and has to go stand trial.
Mom: Bo-ring. Let’s go kill that guy.
