Mass Effect 1 Legendary Edition

Normandy After Noveria

Nathan Garvin

When you ride the tram out of the Rift Station, you’ll finally be done with Noveria. You’ll chat with your crew on the Normandy after the mission, and you can optionally chat with the Council. Stick to the Paragon options for Paragon +2 or the Renegade options for Renegade +2.

Paragon +2 or Renegade +2

(1 of 2) You can score some Paragon/Renegade points by talking to the Council after Noveria.

You can score some Paragon/Renegade points by talking to the Council after Noveria. (left), If this is your third core mission and you’ve been flirting diligently, you’ll be confronted by your romantic interests. (right)

Assuming this is the third core mission you’ve completed (the other two being Therum and Feros) and assuming you’ve been flirting with your crew (Ashley or Kaiden and Liara) after every mission you’ll be confronted by the objects of your clumsy affection. A menage a trois is not in the cards here - you’ll have to choose. Make a point of burning the bridge you want here, after which you’ll be free to explore the Normandy as normal.

You can get Codex Entries by talking to Kaiden, Liara, Garrus and Wrex. It’s also not a bad idea to chat with Liara about what happened with Benezia. Finally, you can keep pushing whatever romance you have left, if you wish.

Codex Entries
Secondary - Aliens: Council Races / Asari: Biology
Secondary - Aliens: Council Races / Salarians: Biology
Secondary - Aliens: Council Races / Turians: Government
Secondary - Aliens: Non-Council Races / Krogan: Military Doctrine
Secondary - Ships and Vehicles / Space Combat: Planetary Assaults

With that, you’re done on the Normandy. Go to the Galaxy Map and you’ll get the assignment UNC: The Negotiation, which will open up the Styx Theta cluster for exploration. Take care of that if you wish, after which it’ll be time to finally head to Virmire.
