How to Begin

The Interview

You’ll be given a series of questions with the objective leading you to cast humans as the superior species, you can either take the bait and turn the interview to your favor or you can attack her to once the questions start and earn +2 Renegade.

Regarding placing the Citadel’s needs before the needs of Earth, you’ll get the following options:

  1. Saying “It’s not like that.” (2 points of Charm) will defend the Council’s authority.
  2. Saying “They know better.” (2 points of Intimidate) will defend your own loyalty.

Regarding the command of the Normandy, you’ll get the following options:

  1. Saying “The Turians helped build it.” (3 points of Charm) will state the Turian’s involvement.
  2. Saying “A great human innovation.” (4 points of Intimidate) will state the humans superiority more.

Regarding the handing over of the Normandy to the Citadel, you’ll get the following options:

  1. Saying “The crew is still Alliance.” (6 points of Charm) will attempt to reassure viewers and skip the next question.
  2. Saying “I command the Normandy.” (5 points of Intimidate) will assert your own authority and skip the next question.
  3. Saying “That’s only a formality.” will lead to an exclusive question.

(1 of 2) Stick with Charm or Intimidate to score the most morality points back on the Normandy

Stick with Charm or Intimidate to score the most morality points back on the Normandy (left), you can end the interview at any time by attacking her. (right)

If you neglected to choose the Charm or Intimidate option in the previous question, you’ll get one final question with the following options:

  1. Saying “If we earn it.” (8 points of Charm) will demand humanity earn the respect instead of being given it.
  2. Saying “When we’re strong.” (7 points of Intimidate) will inform her that military might will demand respect.

The final question pertains to your tracking of Saren, there is no Charm or Intimidate option here and your choice will impact what Admiral Hackett remarks when you return to the Normandy. Despite earning the XP and Credits once the interview ends, you won’t receive any Paragon/Renegade points until your conversation with Admiral Hackett back on the Normandy.
