** Casey Hudson stated that the plot would not be solved by using a "long lost Reaper off-button" and the endings would not be like simple A, B, or C endings but "have a lot more sophistication and variety in them". But in actuality, it is hard to describe [[spoiler:the circumstances of the Crucible's discovery and its eventual function]] as anything but a "long lost Reaper off-button" [[spoiler:even with a heavy element of what can only be described as "space magic" added to it]], and the ending is determined by a LastSecondEndingChoice, where exactly three different choices is offered to the player.

** Originally, the team with Shepard at the start of the [[spoiler:run towards the beam would have died no matter what, when caught in one of Harbinger's beams]]. The scene was cut after [[spoiler:it was decided that just killing two of Shepard's team with no fanfare & regardless of Shepard's choices to that point was too cold hearted, especially when you factor in that it could potentially include Shepard's love interest]]. This is worked back into the Extended Cut - [[spoiler: if your EMS score is too low, you're treated to the sight of Harbinger disintegrating both your squadmates.]]

It follows a [[BoisterousBruiser loudmouthed]], [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero homophobic,]] HeroicComedicSociopath iteriation of Shepard, named "TJ Lazer", and his quest to found a colony dedicated to [[SuperBreedingProgram breeding more people like him.]] Using himself as the father, of course. Legion (called here "Erotitron" and charged with a mission to steal Shepards PornColection) also seems to have been dropped on its head as a subroutine.

** The Ending itself.[[spoiler: Originally, Shepard would hear a different explanation for the Reapers' motives, which also tied in with the Dark Energy subplot established in Mass Effect 2. Ultimately in the end, Shepard would be given two choices - destroy the Reapers and look for another solution, or agree to allow all life to be harvested.]]

:::[[https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsEU/comments/1ako18/i_am_drew_karpyshyn_ama/c8ygy0l/ According to Drew Karpyshyn]] this was just a story seed they planted but never developed. It looks like the dark energy plot was not really part of the "original ending" but one of many other storylines that never developed.

** Datamining has uncovered a [[http://www.holdtheline.com/threads/datamining-the-trilogy-aka-things-that-were-cut.2073/ massive amount of cut material]]. Notably: Javik and Eden Prime originally had much larger roles in the story (Likely cut once it became clear that Javik would be DLC), the Cerberus coup arc went ''much'' differently ([[spoiler:Kai Leng was nowhere in sight and Thane's death was much more heroic]]), and Thessia was going to have a Virmire-esque decision at the end to save a squadmate. Probably the absolute biggest change was that [[spoiler: Javik was originally meant to ''be'' the Catalyst, as in "the final missing piece of the Crucible that would activate it", not "the leader of the Reapers who offers you a choice."]]
