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|
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.

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.
