*** Historical examples of conflict stemming from competition for resources: Trail of Tears / Small Pox biological warfare, Opium Wars, The Holocaust can be traced to post-WWI economic conditions via reparations imposed by the League of Nations, the Cultural Revolution in China was partially meant to distract attention away from widespread famine.

** Also Thane and Jacob, though they're not as strong as the above three.



If you look at the silhouette of a Quarian through the visor of their safe suit (Particularly in ''Mass Effect 3'', you will see suggestions of features that strongly resemble those of humans. While their hands and feet have three digits and two digits, respectively, certain varieties of polydactyly do result in such arrangements. Both their weak immune systems and their apparent polydactyly could both result from inbreeding in the flotillas before they figured out how to avoid that, by which time the polydactyly was breeding true and their weak immune systems simply made it too dangerous for them to be exposed to new bacteria.

** Quarians have digitigrade legs, though. Can't explain that with polydactyly.






It seems odd that a society based on surviving by a thread could produce someone as [[NeverMyFault purely selfish]] as Golo, so why ''would'' he sell his people to The Collectors? Simple. He only tried selling some of his people to The Collectors so they'd give him technology necessary to take back Rannoch or at least put the Quarians on better footing with the rest of the galaxy. This is not to say he's totally misunderstood. When caught, tried, and banished, Golo's reaction to his misfortune was a bit more understandable. He was justifying his actions for TheNeedsOfTheMany, and he justifies his view of the Quarians' [[NeverMyFault betraying him]] by dismissing his people as hypocritical [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bastards]].

* Many people are quick to overlook the fact that some people [[RealLife in real life]] are attracted to fictional alien designs. Why could this not be true for the alien races in Mass Effect towards the human shaped asari? You underestimate the power of [[FetishFuel otherworldly fetish fuel.]]

* From what we know about at least two previous cycles (the Prothan and the Leviathan) biotic powers were relatively common and even a standard form of communication hence the beacon from ME1 pretty much requiring a biotic to understand it, but because of this it cut off a means of communication with the Synthetics they created, unable to register them as alive or at least sentient do to not being able to communicate the same way their makers did. unknowingly the reapers have slowly been removing heavy biotics from the galaxy and replacing it, while they are still around evolution has slowly favored races that relay on verbal and visual communication, similar to what the Synthetics would relay on, and this is why it is possible to get the Geth and Qurians to make peace, or for EDI to be so interested in humanity this is the first cycle where the perception of reality relays heavily on the tangible and not the mental and this cycle is the first to be able to unite all the forces against the Reapers.

** The Prothean beacon doesn't rely on biotics to understand- a soldier, engineer or infiltrator Shepard with zero biotic ability accesses it the same as an adept, vanguard or sentinel Shepard does. The reason Liara was needed for Shepard to advance his/her understanding of its message was because Liara had the cultural expertise on Protheans, and because she was incidentally an asari,she could 'meld' with Shepard to share the knowledge. A non-asari with the knowledge could only have explained it verbally (of limited use), and another asari without Liara's knowledge of Prothean culture would have been no particular use at all.
