Robin Sachs (The voice actor of Zaeed) has passed away..
It is said in ME1 that one needs a strong will to survive that vision from the Beacon but you see how Saren receives the vision prior to Shepard and walks away unscathed (Shep was unconscious because of it). That shows that Shepard is not that strong willed after all and that there are others that could have received the vision in his stead.
If I think about it then it would have been great to play as Asari commander instead of Shepard. I play SciFi games because I want to get to play as something not human and that´s why ME would have been better with an alien protagonist. Of course we identify more with a human hero but imagine Joker and the crew all were Krogans or Asari Nice twist
BTW: The whole "Save Earth" shit sounds pretty stupid in ME3. Why would the other species send all their fleets and troops to earth? It´s not like it is something special. Of course after the reapers moved the Citadel to earth it makes sense to gather there but before? Shepard looks stupid in his first meeting with the council. Shep basically wants them to leave their homeworlds behind and immediately go with him to earth. That´s silly !!

HAHA that pic fits perfectly.
What would you do as councilor if Shepard showed up and basically told you to leave your homeworld behind and send your whole forces to earth to save the humans?
"Yeah sure thing Shepard" is what Shepard wanted to hear at the first meeting with the council in ME3. Is Shep really that dumb and thinks that the Asari, Turians and Salarians would go with full force to earth just because it got attacked?
Yeah stupid plot is stupid. Would the Humans do the same for the other species if they weren't attacked first but instead the Asari got the first hit? Nah Shep would prolly say "Sorry but I can´t help the Asari and I will not send all troops to Thessia !!"
BTW: Who made Shepard a diplomat in ME3? He was a Soldier in ME1 and 2 and suddenly he negotiates with whole species
He would try to save Thessia for Liara´s sake that´s true but not with full Alliance force yet he wants the Asari, Turians and Salarians to do exactly that. Humans would also try to secure their world first if Thessia got attacked first.
The "Save Earth" thing makes not sense for me.
well my understanding of me3 is that he first went to the council for backup for earth but then found out that other worlds are also under atack although from the knowledge i gathered, not as hard as earth so i'd say it would be simpler for sheppard to try to also free those planets and gather all the forces where the reapers were atacking in force. because according to harbinger, they perceive the humans to be a greater threat so they most exterminate them at all costs with the biggest brunt of their forces
someone else might have gotten it wrong.
Operation: NIGHTFALL (Feb 8th-10th)
Event Description: Our concentration on Reapers and Cerberus forces has allowed Reaper-controlled geth to flourish in pockets outside of the Perseus Veil. Our quarian-led and quarian-advised forces will be the key to terminating a geth offensive before it gains ground.
Individual Goal: Playing as any quarian kit, earn 50,000 points versus geth troopers.
Reward: Commendation Pack
I don't understand =/BioWare says the next entry in the Mass Effect series may not be set after or before ME3, or even feature any of the same characters. http://l.gamespot.com/Ydwq5Z
Sounds like they want it to be a whole new adventure, rather than an extension of the Commander Sheppard story. Are you on board with this idea?
Calling it now, alternate timeline.
Bioware heavily implied that Shepard was key to the events without ever explaining why.
