* Guessing that the idea was scrapped after the writer left, because the concept sounds a lot like UsefulNotes\GlobalWarming and deciding to resolve it one way or another would have courted controversy. And possibly alienating a significant portion of the fandom in the United States, where the issue of Global Warming is [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement polarizing.]] They just ended up creating a BrokenBase for a different reason.

*** That is not necessarily accurate - the mechanism by which Shepard [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascends]] to control of the Reapers is [[DeusExMachina unclear]], and may or may not actually "be" Shepard. Of course there's also a philosophical debate to be had over whether a person's physical body is a necessary component of his/her self, but that probably [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment doesn't belong here]].

Much like the first scene of ''[[VideoGame/MassEffect2 [=ME2=]]]'' the Earth rescue will be [=BioWare=]'s way to reset your character . It will start off with Shepard attempting to get as much of Earth's population off world while under fire. It will be a mix of {{Tearjerker}} and CrowningMomentOfAwesome with multiple Squad deaths. As Shepard is providing cover for the last ship leaving Earth he gets hit by a powerful explosion. We see legs and arms flying off. We switch to first person point of view as the medics try to save him, everything is confusing and he faintly hears the medic put him under. As everything fades to black we hear his labored breathing. He looks out the window just in time to see Earth implode as we hear a heartbreaking one woman wail..

We know from Game Informer that the Alliance is claiming the SR-2 and running it through a scrape-down, but there's no way Shepard would let just any Alliance hack rummage through their ship. So naturally, Hackett and/or Anderson pulled some strings to make sure that Adams would be the one to do the job. The resulting cutscene would be a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming reunion]] if Tali is still with you (Adams was something of a father-figure towards her in the first game), and possibly a CrowningMomentOfFunny if Ken and Gabby are [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee fans of his]].

** Wong actually is on Earth during the invasion. She doesn't appear in the game. But her pre-launch Twitter feed showed how humans die - [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome at ramming speed.]]

** 'You get a punch in the face! *PAWNCH* And ''you'' get a punch in the face! *PAWNCH* And ''YOU'' get a punch in the face!' - Incidentally, if this WMG ever happened like that, it would end up on the CrowningMomentOfAwesome page at least three times, as well as the CrowningMomentOfFunny page at least twice. Somehow, it would also end up on the CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming page, due to a very confused (or disturbed) troper.

Looking back on some of these WMG's before the game came out, I noticed an awful lot of similarities between some theories about the ending [[spoiler:(the Relay Network being destroyed, the Citadel being a Reaper itself, the story about "The Shepard", etc.)]] and the actual ending. Either it's a massive coincidence, or [=BioWare=] [[OneOfUs hires an inordinate number of tropers as its employees]], or they looked at our ideas and picked some of them.

*** Confirmed that they're done with the settings and characters for now, since ''Andromeda'' was in an entirely different galaxy. Nothing saying they can't return to the Milky Way galaxy though.


* Sadly not.

to:

* Sadly not.
not. Wrex apparently [[UnwantedHarem has enough trouble with his own species]]; his reaction to Shepard coming on to him would probably be something like [[EtTuBrute "you too, Shepard?"]]



to:

* They do so - very reluctantly - only because Hackett orders all ships to flee the system once the Crucible is activated.

Added DiffLines:

** Shepard only takes control of the '''Reapers''' in the Control ending, not all Synthetic life.



to:

*Except that in the Extended Cut, Joker wants to rescue Shepard regardless of whatever decision Shepard made. It makes no sense that he would try to go back for Shepard if Shepard chose Control/Synthesis and was disintegrated. Also, the ending with the highest EMS is '''Destroy with Shepard surviving'''. It requires 3100 EMS. Synthesis only requires 2800.

* Seems to me that there are just too damn many party members already in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' franchise, not to mention the ones that people want to see that ''[=ME3=]'' will consist of you gathering everybody you want in your party, and then splitting them up to either go with Shepard or do something equally important, like in ''[[FireEmblem Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones]]''.

* Now that we've seen krogan females without headdresses, this theory seems even more plausible. Females have even less of a crest than Grunt did: their heads are smooth and flat.
