Mass Effect Foundation #5 Review

Posted on Monday, November 25 @ 06:56:34 Eastern by Keri_Honea
Up until now, all of the issues in this series have taken place either before the first Mass Effect game or during the first game. Issue 5 starts right after the opening of Mass Effect 2, when the Collectors destroy the Normandy and Shepard is presumed dead after getting spaced post-explosion. If you've read the Mass Effect: Redemption series, then you know of Liara T'soni's adventure in trying to recover Shepard's body from the Shadow Broker. At the end, she agrees to give the body to Miranda, certain that Cerberus can save Shepard better than she can. Here is the story of Miranda's adventure in tracking down Shepard's body, and she has an unlikely partner whom she's trying to recruit into. Cerberus—one Jacob Taylor.

Personally, I appreciate this chapter as I always found it so very convenient that Miranda happened to show up right when Liara found Shepard's body. Sure, Miranda is definitely a smooth operative, but it couldn't have been that easy for her. And it wasn't.

She wants Jacob to join Cerberus, and she thinks bringing hi making on her search for Shepard is best way to get him to abandon the Alliance. Considering their investigation has landed them smack in the middle of the wrong side of a human slave trade headed by the Batarians, I somehow doubt it will take much to convince Jacob that the Alliance isn't doing everything they can to help humanity.

Miranda and Jacob's story doesn't complete here; instead there's a fiery explosion of a cliffhanger, but I guess we all know how it ends anyway. The fun here is readin about how they got there.

Of course, Rasa, our venerable Forrest Gump of the series, has a brief appearance in the beginning, where she is quite put out that she is not the one tasked with finding Shepard. What's worse is that she has no idea who has been, so we can expect her to become quite obsessed with Shepard's new friends in issues to come.
