This page is a walkthrough for the main mission, The Normandy. It navigate you through the necessary to successfully helping your squad escape.
Escape the burning Normandy!
Following the introductory scene, you will initiate a chat with one of your old squadmates from the original Mass Effect: either Liara, Ashley Williams or Kaiden Alenko (depending on whom you romanced in Mass Effect 1, the gender of your Shepard, or the outcome of a choice made in the previous game). When the conversation is over and a little more cinematic action is forthcoming, you will take control of Commander Shepard.
For this section you will need to make your way to the cockpit: to do so move forward, down the stairs and circle around the fire to the left. Climb the far set of stairs and exit on to the command deck. Move all the way to the far side of the room and up the hallway here into the cockpit for another conversation and a scene that sets up the rest of the game.
After the final events on the Normandy, the story will continue.
