Everything’s going great—you’ve got the hottest ship in the galaxy, and you probably just had intergalactic relations with a blue-skinned dime in ME1. All of a sudden, your entire galaxy is ripped inside out when a mysterious ship appears out of nowhere and starts tempura-frying the Normandy. Everything’s pure chaos, and the music builds and builds as you try to retrieve Joker…and then, nothing. You open the door to the main bridge, only to be greeted by dead, vast space and the last remains of your vessel. Everything you knew from the first game is gone. That violently shocking silence is what will make this game’s opening a legend for years to come.
