So a close to a year ago, about a week after Shepard was able to walk out of the Medbay on her own two feet and I could finally focus on the other things that needed to be done. I went into the AI core and got to work.

It was…. Eerie working in there in total silence, that room is usually humming with all her towers containing the majority of her being. And they didnt exactly install quantum computing into the ships targeting system. I—

I looked through her code, it was a mess. Like a puzzle of million pieces scattered everywhere. I knew there was reaper code involved in her creation and was a little weary of that, but I knew EDI, I had to bring her back.
