** The Refusal Ending for Mass Effect 3 is a book-end to the inciting incident with the Prothean Beacon in Mass Effect 1. To wit: in ME 1, Shepard finds a warning by an extinct civilization which had fought and been wiped out by the Reapers. It sets off the first effort to stop the Reapers in this cycle. In the Refusal ending, after Shepard [[spoiler: has refused to cooperate with the Catalyst in any way]], pretty much the same thing happens - all advanced civilizations are wiped out but a few warnings were sent out. However, the creator of the new warning [[spoiler: Liara]] has learned from the mistakes of this go-around. Cut to [[spoiler: an unknown race]] thousands of years in the future defeating the Reapers because the warnings left for them were easy to understand and contained vast amounts of scientific and technical data.
