Lieutenant Vega: What the hell is going on? Where's Anderson? Where are we going? Hey!
Shepard: We're leaving.
Lieutenant Vega: Leaving?
Ashley: What's going on?
Shepard: Anderson wants us to go to the Citadel. Get help for the fight.
Lieutenant Vega: Bullshit! He wouldn't order us to leave.
Shepard: He can see what's going on. Without help this war is already over.
Lieutenant Vega: Then you can drop me off at the nearest depo because I'm not leaving.
Shepard: Stop Lieutenant! You don't want to go. We get it. But this isn't a democracy. We're going to the Citadel. You want out, you can catch a ride back from there.
Shepard: Joker, is that you?
Joker: Alive and kicking. Got an emergency transmission from Admiral Hackett for you.
Shepard: Patch it through.
Admiral Hackett: Sustained heavy losses. Force was overwhelming. No way we can defeat them conventionally.
Shepard: Anderson has already ordered me to the Citadel to talk to the council.
Admiral Hackett: First we need you go to the outpost on Mars before we lose control of the system.
Shepard: Yes, sir.
Admiral Hackett: You will be researching the archives with Dr. Tasownee. We found a way to stop the reapers.... the only way to stop them... Contact you soon. Hackett out.
Shepard: Joker, set a course for the Mars archives.
Joker: Mars? Roger that!
Lieutenant Vega: This is loco.
Ashley: Why Mars? What does he think we will find there?
Shepard: I don't know, yet. But if it helps us win this war... Grab your gear.
Lieutenant Vega: I've been trying to reach Mars on a secure channel. No one is answering.
Shepard: Any sign of Reaper activity?
Lieutenant Vega: Negative.
EDI: The base appears to be online. It is possible the inhabitants were evacuated.
Shepard: Not soon enough. Be ready Joker, just in case.
Joker: Roger that. Normandy out.
Lieutenant Vega: We're almost there.
Still no contact from the base but we've got a massive storm headed our way.
Shepard: How long till it hits?
Lieutenant Vega: Half hour tops. After that we are going to have difficulty keeping up coms with the Normandy.
Lieutenant Vega: Man, that's a huge storm! Looks a lot bigger in person.
Shepard: Come on, Lieutenant. It's not that bad.
Lieutenant Vega: Doesn't mean it can't kill us.
Shepard: I'm more worried about the war back on Earth or the fact that nobody here is reporting in.
Lieutenant Vega: Fair enough.
Shepard: Alliance. Sargent Reeves. Doesn't look like he put up a fight.
Lieutenant Vega: Something is not right here.
Shepard: Keep a low profile till we know what's going on.
Lieutenant Vega: Roger that.
Holy shit! They are executing them. It's a clear shot. They know we are here now.
Those guys were Servers, weren't they?
Shepard: Sure looked like it.
Ashley: What are Servers doing here on Mars?
Shepard: Good question.
Ashley: You don't know?
Shepard: I'm not with them any more, Ash. If that's what your asking.
Ashley: It wasn't. But we've got a shadowy terrorist organization infiltrating one of our top research facilities. I think that warrants a bit of suspicion.
Lieutenant Vega: Look out!
Doesn't look like they came here in force.
Shepard: Yeah, just a few vehicles.
Ashley: Kinda suggests they had help from the inside.
Shepard: Seems likely. You need a lot more men and fire power to take this place otherwise.
Ashley: I need a straight answer, Shepard.
Shepard: About what?
Ashley: Servers may be pro human but they are no friends of the Alliance. Do you know what they are doing here?
Shepard: What makes you think I know what they are up to?
Ashley: You worked for them. How am I supposed to believe you've cut all ties?
Shepard: Let me be clear. I didn't work for them. I worked with them and I don't anymore. And I have no idea why they are here now or what they want.
Lieutenant Vega: Commander Shepard has been under constant surveillance since coming back to Earth. No way they have communicated since.
Ashely: Sorry, Shepard, I just...
Shepard: You want to hate servers fine, but I'm done explaining myself to you. Are we clear?
Ashley: Of course. I didn't mean to...
Shepard: Easy there, Lieutenant. She's with us.
